Sustanon is an extremely potent anabolic steroid and should be used only after medical approval. When abused or overdosed, Sustanon can result in health complications like fluid retention, hypertension, nausea, acne, gynecomastia, prostatic disorder, and priapism (prolonged and painful erections). In rare cases, abuse of this steroid can lead to polycythemia, myalgia, pruritus, depression, nervousness, mood disturbances, libido increase, and reduced libido. Indiscriminate abuse of this steroid in the long term may cause depression, hair loss, impotency, testicular atrophy, kidney disorders, heart problems or infertility. Sustanon abuse may even cause reduced sperm count, oily skin, acne, heart damage, fluid retention, shrinking of the testicles, and increased risk for breast and prostate cancer. Female athletes overdosing on Sustanon can experience health complications like virilization, clitoral enlargement, growth and development of male secondary sexual characteristics, and oily skin.
For the off-season athlete there is no anabolic steroid more important or beneficial than testosterone. High levels of testosterone will promote significant increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This is assuming that the individual is consuming adequate calories. Compounds like Testosterone Propionate are not magical, you will still need to feed your body enough calories. During an off-season period of growth, this means total caloric intake will need to be slightly above maintenance. This will, unfortunately, promote body fat gain. However, the key to a successful off-season is gaining lean tissue while minimizing body fat gain to the fullest extent possible. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate you will be able to achieve this more efficiently. High testosterone levels will promote a stronger metabolic rate. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, but you should be able to make better use of your calories.
