TESTOGAN Testosterone Propionate, despite being a veterinary drug, was discovered by bodybuilders only many years ago and has been used ever since to increase strength and muscle bulk.
Testosterone is the main male sex hormone and is responsible for the production of certain male sexual traits. When synthesized, it is usually linked to an ester to slow its release in the body. Testosterone propionate is the shorter ester commonly associated with testosterone. This means that the hormone takes a shorter time to break free of the ester and be released in the body. Due to its short active life, Testosterone Propionate normally must be injected every other day, at least. Typically, Testosterone Propionate causes fewer side effects and less water retention, and when they do occur, these effects usually subside rapidly when use is stopped.
Testosterone Propionate is actually one of bodybuilders favorite testosterones. That’s because this short ester seems to produce much less rapid early gains and water retention. The bad news is that this particular form of testosterone must be injected frequently. Many users prefer to inject it every day or every other day, in doses of around 100 to 200 mg.
One of the most interesting things that many users find, is that when using 100mg every other day, blood testosterone levels were high, but still within normal limits. This indicates that these athletes could probably use this same dose and still pass a doping test.
