Testosterone Suspension is an injectable testosterone suspended in a water solvent – usually 100mg/ml . Testosterone Suspension is one of the oldest androgens available; it was originally developed some 40 years ago. Testosterone Suspension has been used by athletes for decades and still has quite a following who like the fast action of the drug. Since it is in a water base, it gets in the blood in a matter of hours and has a life of around a day. This requires that the compound be administered frequently.
The worst thing about this is that shots are often painful which can lead to a very uncomfortable cycle. Still, hundreds of athletes sacrifice comfort to reap its rewards which often include dramatic gains in size and strength. I know for a fact that hundreds of powerlifting records have been obtained with the help of testosterone suspension. Many championship physiques were aided by the long term use of this drug as well. Unfortunately, this drug is very hard on the system. It is high in androgens, aromatizes easily and it is hard on the liver. The prolonged use of testosterone suspension will severely suppress the natural pituitary hormone axis, resulting in serious atrophy of the testicles and infertility.
Although these symptoms are reversible, many athletes find them unacceptable. Due to the large percentage of exogenous testosterone that is converted to DHT in the system, acne and male pattern baldness can result. As with other testosterones, users often find that the rapid gains increased aggression is another common side effect associated with the use for some users that it is grounds for avoiding this item altogether. Another very noticeable effect from this drug is that it can dramatically increase the sex drive when it is used in the short term, but, as with other testosterones, the long term use can lead to impotence and sexual dysfunction. It is still very popular for powerlifters to use testosterone suspension every day for the last couple weeks before a contest. This has reportedly yielded some unbelievable last minute strength increases.
A few bodybuilders find that this fast-acting androgen helps harden them up proir to a bodybuilding competition. Some even take the drug the morning of a contest and claim it makes their muscles look harder and fuller. I consider this product to be in the same class as Anadrol – It yields dramatic gains in size and strength yet it has so many potential side effects that it does not fall into an aceptable range in terms of risk-to-benefit. (Just because I see it as an unacceptable risk, does not mean that athletes are going to stop using it.)
Average dosages of testosterone suspension have been in the range of 100mg every other day.
