5a reduced form Structure
1-Testosterone is also known as dihydroboldenone and
1-dehydroandrostanolone,it is the 5a reduced form of boldenone
(Equipoise). 1-Testosterone was the first fully active steroid
introduced to the dietary supplement market.
This lack of 5alpha reduction with the compound allows users to
administer it without suffering the negative side effects
associated with this chemical reaction but also eliminates the
benefits as well. Boldenone is not the only steroid that shares
similarities with dihydroboldenone. In fact dihydroboldenone is
chemically identical to the drug methenolone except for the
1-methylation that is apart of methenolone . 1-methylation was of
course added to methenolone to make it more available when taken
orally and thus dihydroboldenone is not efficiently utilized when
administered orally, although it was once sold over the counter in
tablet and pill form.
Some of these over the counter preparations of the drug were done
utilizing a delivery system similar to Andriol , i.e. producing an
oil-solubilized product with dihydroboldenone. This would still not
be a relatively worthwhile system of delivery to use however if one
wanted to maximize the potential of the compound. Intramuscular
injection is by far the most efficient method of administration to
use as with most anabolic steroids.
As mentioned above, dihydroboldenone is structurally similar to
methenolone and boldenone and less so to testosterone despite the
commonly used name for it, 1-testosterone. For this reason some
female athletes may be inclined to use the drug as well. The
potential for development of symptoms of virilization still remain
but are not as severe as with synthetic testosterone or other
harsher drugs. This is not to say however that dihydroboldenone is
a mild drug.
To simplify the explanation of exactly what the drug is, it is to
boldenone as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is to testosterone. This
would explain why the effects of the drug, both positive and
negative, are so dissimilar to those of boldenone. Like
testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, a portion of the boldenone
that a user administers converts to dihydroboldenone. Also
similarly, dihydroboldenone like dihydrotestosterone does not
convert to anything else past that compound.
Favorable anabolic to androgenic Ratio
1-Testosterone has an anabolic to androgenic ratio of 200/100. With
1-testosterone, many users report a hardening effect and an
increase in vascularity. 1-testosterone appears to be best used for
size gains, although it should still provide the user with strength
gains as well. In effect, 1-testosterone has been compared to
Primobolan and Equipoise, though overall it is a much more potent
compound mg for mg. 1-testosterone is considered a “dry” compound
which can be used during cutting phases yet because of its strength
is can also be useful during a bulking phase.
With its favorable anabolic to androgenic ratio, the low doses
needed to see results, and the fact that 1-testosterone is already
5a reduced, androgenic side effects should not be too high with
this compound in comparison to other steroids like testosterone.
1-testosterone cannot convert to estrogen, so the user should not
experience bloating while on cycle and the risk of developing
gynecomastia is low when 1-testosterone is used alone.
One side effect commonly experienced by 1-testosterone users is
lethargy. The exact reason for this lethargy is unknown, but it may
be due to the fact that 1-testosterone lacks the energy and libido
boosting effects of testosterone yet is still suppressive of
natural testosterone production, or because of low estrogen levels.
Stacking 1-testosterone with a more androgenic compound during a
cut or a “wet” compound during a bulk does appear to relieve the
issue of lethargy in most users.
Indeed dihydroboldenone is available in numerous different esters.
Cypionate , Ethyl Carbonate, Propyl Carbonate, and Propionate ,
among others, are all available for use with the drug. As always
each does not offer any real advantages over one another other then
the obvious differing active lives that each presents and the
amount of time that it takes for the body to completely eliminate
the drug from it .
For the most part users will want to have their choice dictated by
the injection frequency with which they want to deal with when
using the compound, but of course they will also likely be limited
by those that are made available to them. GP 1-Test Cyp is a
product that contains 200mg of the Dihydroboldenone Cypionate.
Anecdotally some users have indicated that post-injection pain with
dihydroboldenone can become an issue for some. Diluting the drug
with either another injectable drug or some other type of sterile
oil seems to alleviate at least some of this discomfort. The type
of ester used does not appear to negate this pain for the users
that experience it however.
1-Testosterone is still available on the black market as injectable
1-testosterone cypionate.While 1-testosterone and its direct
prohormone 1-androstenediol are banned, 1-DHEA(1-androsterone) is
still legally available and converts to 1-testosterone in a two
Dihydroboldenone, while not overly androgenic, is a potent
anabolic. It has been demonstrated that the drug binds extremely
well and selectively to the androgen receptor and stimulates
androgen receptor transactivation of dependent reporter genes .
This equates to a drug that possesses the ability to stimulate
significant muscle growth while not producing androgenic side
Also it does not aromatize and therefore estrogenic side effects
such as gynecomastia and water retention are not a concern for
users. It has been shown to be by far more anabolic than such
compounds as boldenone, nandrolone , and even testosterone itself.
Obviously this is of great benefit to many athletes.
As for specific dosages used with this drug, the low end is
primarily thought to be 300-400mg a week for male users. For
females the usual rules apply with dihydroboldenone as they do with
other drugs. Anywhere from 25-100mg per week would be a good
starting point for the majority of female users who have little to
moderate experience with anabolic drugs.
The frequency of dosing with dihydroboldenone depends on the ester
used with the compound. Seemingly the most popular current ester to
produce the drug with is cypionate. Typcially, males would use a
dosage of 200-400mg Dihydroboldenone Cypionate a week.No matter
what ester utilized however the same rules would apply as with any
other drug in terms of the frequency of administration needed to
maintain relatively stable blood levels of the compound.
Orally, 1-testosterone has a very short half-life and is not very
bioavailable because it is not methylated to avoid breakdown by the
liver. When 1-testosterone is administered as a transdermal
(absorbed through the skin), bioavailability is increased but its
short half-life is still an issue. 1-testosterone was also sold as
an injectable as 1-testosterone cypionate, which greatly increased
half-life to about 4-5 days, making this the most effective way to
use 1-testosterone. When injected, only 100-200mg/week is needed
for an effective cycle.
With the positive aspects of the lack of aromatization associated
with dihydroboldenone also come the negative ones. Fortunately
these are primarily limited to such symptoms as lethargy, malaise
and possibly a reduction in sex drive. These are caused by a lower
ratio of estrogen in comparison to androgens in the body. For the
most part however this effect is relatively slight and can be
avoided with the use of steroids that do aromatize in conjunction
with dihydroboldenone and thus restore a better balance in terms of
androgens versus estrogen.
It also appears that the administration of dihydroboldenone may
result in an increase in liver weight . This effect occurred when
administering the drug orally but should also be true of the drug
when administered via intramuscular injection. There is no research
to indicate this however.
Other common negative side effects associated with the use of
anabolic/androgenic steroids are still relatively mild with the use
of dihydroboldenone. Of course suppression of the natural
testosterone production of users will occur like with all steroids,
however other side effects such as an increase in blood pressure,
acne and others are comparably mild and often times non-existent in
users, at least as they are directly related to the administration
of this drug.
In terms of side effects for women, at moderate to heavy doses
symptoms of virilization are likely. These can include such
symptoms as clitoral enlargement, body hair growth and deepening of
the voice. At lower doses however these side effects should not be
a concern for the majority of potential female users.
