Fluoxymesterone (Halotestin) is an extremely potent anabolic steroid exhibiting high androgenic activity, it was first released in the 1950s. This drug was initially widely used for therapeutic purposes to treat muscle atrophy, restore muscle, bones and skin after serious injuries, fractures and burns. Halotestin regularly prescribed to men with a lack of androgen and for the treatment of breast cancer in women.
To date, in a sporting environment, Halotestin has a reputation for being one of the most powerful and fastest-acting steroids. Nevertheless, not many people will use it, since this drug is not very suitable for building muscle mass. Its main task is to increase the strength and endurance indicators. For this reason, it is often used by professional power athletes wishing to improve their results, while remaining in the previous weight category. Professional bodybuilders also use Halotestin in the last weeks before the competition, to make the body more “downed” and “dry” condition.
Functions and features.
Fluoxymesterone is a structurally altered form of testosterone in three positions: 17-alpha-methyl group, 11-beta-hydroxyl group, and 9-fluorogrupa. These modifications can increase the half-life, as well as increase its androgenic and anabolic properties. The structure of Halotestin has an anabolic rating of 1900 and androgenic 850, which is not even close to testosterone with a rating of 100 to 100. However, in reality, everything is not so good. Its anabolic properties on practices are not so strong. Nevertheless, Halotestin significantly increases the reproduction of red blood cells, which is good for improving the strength indicators. It also contributes to the fat burning process, by promoting the oxidative processes of fatty acids.
Halotestin is not a universal steroid, it is mainly used by professional weightlifters or bodybuilders. The main effects of this drug is an increase in strength, density and the drawing of muscles, but at the same time a weak increase in muscle mass. Halotestin influences a person’s mental mood, giving him more energy and zeal to achieve higher results. Many may find that this is too much, fearing a harmful influence on their psyche. Halotestin can not change your personality, can not make you change your worldview, it only strengthens the impulse and desire to achieve new results, which will be very useful for some people. Professional athletes and bodybuilders use it in the last weeks before the competition, which allows you to burn the remains of adipose tissue as efficiently as possible while retaining your musculature.
The fact that fluoxymesterone is a very strong androgen, definitely suggests that women athletes should stay away from this drug. The effects of masculinization can be very intense and can occur very quickly when using this substance. Even those women who are bold enough to take methandrostenolone should think twice before using Halotestin, since signs of virilization from it are, as a rule, irreversible.
Although fluoxymesterone manifests itself as a more androgenic substance than testosterone, its anabolic effect is not very strong. This makes it a drug, rather, for building strength and not the best for a serious increase in muscle mass. The predominant effect observed when Halotestin is used is a harder and denser type of musculature without a noticeable increase in its volume. Therefore, it can be very useful to athletes performing in those sports where there is a restriction on their own weight, for example in wrestling, powerlifting and boxing. The strength gained from each cycle of fluoxymesterone will not be accompanied by a large increase in the weight of the athlete’s body, allowing most users to remain in their weight category.
Also, this drug significantly increases aggressiveness. This effect is often desirable for those users who are “cautious” when working with iron, as it allows them to increase the intensity of training and feedback at competitions. Increasing strength and aggressiveness are the reasons why fluoxymesterone is very popular among powerlifters, weightlifters, American football players and, in particular, boxers. And, while bodybuilders are usually satisfied with 20 to 30 mg / day, powerlifters often use 40 mg / day or more.
Reception of Halotestin
Admission Halotestin should not exceed 6-8 weeks, due to its high toxicity for the liver. It is recommended to use a dosage of 10 to 25 mg per day.
Also, the drug can be combined (taken with other anabolics) with testosterone (propionate, enanthate, cypionate). If your goal is to get relief, then you can combine with primobolanom, equipozem and decoy.
Halotestin Side Effects
A large load on the liver (toxic), the discharge of acne (prishchi), hair loss on the head, virilization, a decrease in the production of its own androgenic testosterone. Because of this, it is recommended to undergo a course of recovery of the body and take proviron, nolvadex, clomid, etc.).
In terms of toxicity Halotestin is similar to methane (methandrostenolone) or to anapolone 50.
