Dynabol (Nandrolone Cypionate)
SHORT DYNABOL DESCRIPTION:
Dynabol is another Australian steroid, containing the unique compound nandrolone cypionate. Nandrolone cypionate is very similar to Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) but faster acting. Normal doses are 200 – 400 mg per week.
This drug is only produced in Australia as a veterinary product and is rarely seen outside of Australia. Nandrolone cypionate is very similar to Nandrolone Decanoate, the primary difference here is that cypionate will only sustain a notable release for a about two weeks. Because of this blood levels peak much faster, and gains will probably accumulate in a shorter time frame. This means Dynabol fits most appropriately into mass building phase of training. Endogenous testosterone levels are likely to be effected by this drug however, especially after longer cycles. A testosterone stimulating drug such as (again) Clomid/Nolvadex and/or HCG may therefore be needed to avoid a post-cycle “crash”, resulting in excessive muscle loss.
LONG DYNABOL DESCRIPTION:
Dynabol is an Australian steroid, containing the unique compound nandrolone cypionate. This drug is only produced in Australia as a veterinary product and is rarely seen here in the United States. It is very similar in effect to Deca-Durabolin, allowing a slow release of the mild steroid nandrolone. The primary difference here is that cypionate will only sustain a notable release for a about two weeks. Deca on the other hand is active in the body for up to one month. The shorter duration should not really be looked to as an unfavorable characteristic however. In this case it produces an extremely interesting steroid. Blood levels peak much faster, and gains will probably accumulate in a shorter time frame. This is supported by the fact that many bodybuilders in Australia swear Dynabol is one of the most favorable nandrolone preparations, often said to provide a stronger “kick” than Deca-Durabolin.
Much of what can be said for Deca holds true for Dynabol. It is a strong anabolic, with a mild androgenic component. As with all nandroiones, Dynabol has a relatively low affinity for estrogen conversion (estimated to be about 20% of the rate testosterone converts). Dynabol however is noted as producing a bit more water retention than nandrolone decanoate. This is of course due to the fact that Dynabol acts so quickly in the body, a substantial blood hormone concentration building in just a couple of weeks. Estrogen levels will also build quickly, more hormone being free to convert in the starting weeks. Deca on the other hand takes three of four weeks of repeated dosing before to reaching peak levels, and likewise estrogen levels will build up more slowly. Aside from timing however there is no real difference between the two compounds. Individuals very sensitive to gynecomastia may need to addition an antiestrogen like Clomid or Nolvadex when using this product, but otherwise ancillary drugs are usually not necessary for estrogen maintenance with a nandrolone.
Endogenous testosterone levels are likely to be effected by this drug however, especially after longer cycles. A testosterone stimulating drug such as (again) Clomid/Nolvadex and/or HCG may therefore be needed to avoid a post-cycle “crash”, resulting in excessive muscle loss. HCG is typically used for only a week or two to help kick-start the testes, enabling them to respond normally to the resumed release of endogenous gonadotropins (this capacity may be diminished after a period of long inactivity). After this point Ciomid or Nolvadex are continued for two to three more weeks in an effort to normalize testosterone production in the body.
Although these steroids are very mild, female athletes can sometime have problems with nandrolones. Conversion to DHT, in this case dihydronandrolone (milder then its parent nandrolone), makes androgenic buildup a much lower concern than with most other steroids. The activity of nandrolone is actually reduced somewhat in androgen target tissues, which gives this steroid a much more favorable ratio of anabolic to androgenic effect than most steroids. While virilization symptoms are not usually a pronounced problem with responsible use of a nandrolone, women may still wish to use a faster acting ester such as Durabolin. This gives the user a greater level of control over blood hormone levels, and reduces the risk for inadvertent androgenic buildup.
Dynabol would be about as versatile as Deca-Durabolin, the compound being well suited for both cutting and bulking cycles. Many however feel the more rapid effect and slightly faster onset of estrogenic side effects (sensitive individuals) causes Dynabol to fit most appropriately into mass building phase of training (completely non-aromatizing steroids are often the preference for cutting). Since nandrolone cypionate is seen in a maximum strength of 50 mg/ml, a weekly dosage of 200-400 mg is most commonly used. When used in this range it should provide a very noticeable amount of quality muscle mass, without the heavy water bloat of a testosterone. Although higher doses may bring out a stronger anabolic effect, injections can become very uncomfortable with the volume of oil required each week. Dynabol will further mix well with almost any other steroid, including popular mass drugs such as testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol 50
The only bad this to say about Dynabol is we hardly ever see it in America. Outside of Australia this steroid is very rarely found. When steroids were not as restricted in Australia, some U.S. and European athletes were able to order this item (among others) via a number of mail-order sources. Most operations have since dried up however, and this distinct anabolic is now extremely hard to find.
