If any single word was to be used to describe the anabolic steroid Sustanon, a good choice might be sloppy. Sustanon is a blended mix of three different esters of testosterone base, Testosterone Isocaproate, Testosterone Phenylpropionate, and Testosterone Propionate, along with an added female hormone, estradiol. This blend is often used in stacks calling for testosterone in bodybuilders and athletes looking to build mass and strength.
Why would we call it sloppy’? Sustanon is similar to Sustanon in its function and effects. The bodybuilder gets big very big – but tends to lose tightness and sharpness as well. Male bodybuilders who take it experience a weight gain of 5 to 15 pounds very quickly, much of which is water. Their strength on most lifts will climb greatly, particularly on the compound movements. However, they will also begin holding a lot of water and fat below the skin, greatly clouding vascularity. Female bodybuilders who take Sustanon will see significantly fast gains in body mass, weight, and potentially, suffer quickly from virilization. It’s a risky jump for the female athlete, to plunge into Sustanon.
There are a few warnings that accompany the use of Sustanon. Sustanon shouldn’t be taken anywhere near a bodybuilding show or other physique competition where visual appearance is important. Water and fat retention are just too great. Also, if you are a male with a history of suffering from Gynecomastia, you may wish to seek out another testosterone product. Sustanon is notorious for causing gyno in men. It also results in the endocrine system halting testosterone pretty quickly, and blood pressure becoming elevated in a short time.
Should you give it a shot? If you’re a young male with resources and access to PCT and gyno treatment if necessary, going all out, balls-to-the-walls and just looking to add a great deal of mass and strength quickly, Sustanon can be a good medium-risk option for you. If you’re an older user (where blood pressure or heart health might be a concern) or a competitive bodybuilder where adding bulk and possibly suffering from gyno might put your competitive plans on hold, Sustanon might not be the best choice for you. Like many things in the bodybuilding chemistry world, the right answer isn’t always right for everybody. If you don’t mind getting a little sloppy, then a sloppy compound like Sustanon might be for you. If you’d prefer to keep your physique a bit tighter, look for different testosterone compounds.
