Sustanon-250 is a pure testosterone based Anabolic androgenic steroid comprised of four active testosterone compounds. Developed by Organon for the strict purpose of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), it has for many years been a favorite of performance enhancing athletes. The idea behind Sustanon-250 is quite straightforward, through its design one could receive a steady dose of testosterone without frequent injections, and on that basis Sustanon-250 hits the nail on the head. Nevertheless, while this presents a distinct advantage for the TRT patient, it doesn't translate well for the performance enhancer in-terms of injection frequency. Make no mistake; this is an excellent testosterone for any man, performance enhancer or not, but its original intent is meaningless to the performance enhancing athlete.
What is Sustanon-250?
As stated above, Sustanon-250 is simply a pure testosterone, and as a testosterone, it performs the same as any testosterone form; Testosterone-Cypionate, Testosterone-Enanthate, Testosterone-Propionate, Omnadren, etc. it's all testosterone. What makes Sustanon-250 unique is its precise four part testosterone mixture; four separate testosterone compounds with four distinct esters. Through this makeup, with a single injection we almost immediately reap the benefits of testosterone, and they continue for a far extended period of time after that first injection. How long do the benefits last? Well, Sustanon-250 has an active half-life of approximately 18 days, so that should give you a pretty good idea.
You may have already guessed it; Sustanon-250 is remarkably similar to Omnadren; in-fact, with the exception of the largest ester in each they are identical. At any rate, as stated what makes "Sust" as it is commonly known is its precise mixture. To make Sustanon-250, you must have the following four testosterone compounds in the following precise doses; any compound that claims to be Sust yet carries different dosing levels or different esters even one is not Sustanon-250. The makeup of Sust is as follows:
- 30mg Testosterone-Propionate (small ester)
- 60mg Testosterone-Phenylpropionate (small ester)
- 60mg Testosterone-Isocaproate (moderate ester)
- 100mg Testosterone-Decanoate (massively large ester)
With large and small esters attached, massively large in the case of the Decanoate ester, by design TRT patients can actually get by with one single injection every 2-4 weeks; at least this was the intent. Of course, this presents one slight problem if you go into the two week mark, and that is levels will fluctuate, and that's not a good thing, but for the TRT patient, it's not the end of the world. For solid TRT therapy, one injection every 10-12 days is just about perfect. As for the performance enhancer, this is where things begin to change, as the compound must be injected quite frequently. For the performance enhancer steroiding with Sustanon-250, because of the mixture of esters and the need for levels to remain at their peak, as is the point with performance, injections must take place at least every third day with every other day injection protocol being far more optimal.
Sustanon-250 vs. All Others:
When it comes to the benefits of testosterone, Sustanon-250 presents the same benefits of each and every testosterone form. Then of course we have side-effects, but as is with benefits the side-effects of Sustanon-250 are the same as every other testosterone form. When choosing a testosterone, we are not choosing one because it presents a specific benefit in-term of direct mode of action over another; for the one millionth time, testosterone is testosterone is testosterone. While this is true, the fantastic news is Sustanon-250 is an excellent testosterone and can provide nearly every trait a performance enhancing athlete could ever be after. If you're looking to grow, Sust can provide; if it's time to diet and lean out, Sust can provide, and if you simply want an overall higher quality of life, i.e. look better, feel better, perform higher, etc., once again Sustanon-250 can provide.
