TESTO-CYPMAX (Testosterone cypionate) is used as a form of doping among athletes in order to improve performance. Testosterone is classified as an anabolic agent and is on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) List of Prohibited Substances and Methods. Hormone supplements cause the endocrine system to adjust its production and lower the natural production of the hormone, so when supplements are discontinued, natural hormone production is lower than it was originally.
Anabolic–androgenic steroids (AAS), including testosterone and its esters, have also been taken to enhance muscle development, strength, or endurance. They do so directly by increasing the muscles’ protein synthesis. As a result, muscle fibers become larger and repair faster than the average person’s.
After a series of scandals and publicity in the 1980s (such as Ben Johnson’s improved performance at the 1988 Summer Olympics), prohibitions of AAS use were renewed or strengthened by many sports organizations. Testosterone and other AAS were designated a “controlled substance” by the United States Congress in 1990, with the Anabolic Steroid Control Act. Their use is seen as an issue in modern sport, particularly given the lengths to which athletes and professional laboratories go to in trying to conceal such use from sports regulators. Steroid use once again came into the spotlight as a result of Canadian professional wrestler Chris Benoit’s double murder-suicide in 2007; however, there is no evidence implicating steroid use as a factor in the incident.
Some female athletes may have naturally higher levels of testosterone than others, and may be asked to consent to sex verification and either surgery or drugs to decrease testosterone levels. This has proven contentious, with the Court of Arbitration for Sport suspending the IAAF policy due to insufficient evidence of a link between high androgen levels and improved athletic performance.
How to use TESTO-CYPMAX
If your goals for replacement therapy is bodybuilding, the procedure differs. Bodybuilders are looking to raise T-levels above what their biology allows. Because of this, users will take larger doses of 400 to 500 mg each. Injections are three times a week for 12 weeks. Some users expand their injections to as much as 600 to 700 milligrams.
A common method is to stack T with anabolic compounds like Human Growth Hormone. In this case, 200 mg shots are the standard.
To track progress of your training and supplementation, experts recommend taking periodic pictures. Gains can be slow and hard to measure with the naked eye and photos offer an objective perspective. Plus, it is fun to see your hard work pay off!
