Testosterone Propionate: Basic Chemistry And Testing
The testosterone propionate many athletes and bodybuilders are using in programs to boost their lean mass and strength is nothing special from a chemical structure standpoint.
It is basically a synthetic version of the same chemical your body already produces at a lower level. The main difference is in the propionate that is attached to it, which controls the rate at which it’s released into the body, giving whatever amounts of it you administer a lifespan of 4 days to exert its impact on your body.
This impact includes an increase in muscle protein production, reduction in protein, and rise in nitrogen retention. Over time, this results in greater lean tissue, which boosts strength, power and work capacity. The drug also boosts erythrocyte production which further helps the latter effect.
This is why the majority of people who use it are athletes or bodybuilders trying to boost either their capabilities or their physique.
The relatively short lifespan of the anabolic also helps with regard to athletic testing. The IOC (International Olympic Committee) undergoes testing which allows up to 4:1 to 6:1 testosterone to epitestosterone (a non-enhancing offshoot of testosterone) ratio. So, while this will give some wiggle room to athletes, considering the average male has a 1:1 ratio, the timeframe for which this chemical will leave your body should be carefully observed and considered when taking it.
However, it should be noted that some agencies use a stricter test known as Carbon Isotope Ratio Testing, being able to detect artificial sources of the hormone, a test a user is likely to fail regardless of ratio levels.
The short-acting nature of the testosterone propionate means it’s usually employed in programs where the aim is to preserve lean tissue, and its strength and power benefits therein, while cutting fat. It can also be used by beginners to gain lean tissue in a short period of time. In either case, programs can last between 12 weeks all the way up to a year for some. Although caution should be used when elongating the use of such anabolics due to the greater risk of incurring adverse effects.
Male recreational or competitive users would use 50 to 200 milligrams taken as an intramuscular injection daily to every second day. Meanwhile, women could use 50 to 100 milligrams of testosterone with propionate ester every second day.
