Boldenone is a very different type of performance enhancer, primarily due to the fact it is a veterinary drug.
You may come across vials labelled as boldenone undecylenate or ‘Equipoise’, equipoise being the brand name it was manufactured under.
Boldenone shows similar characteristics to deca, it has a long ester to reduce injection frequency and has for many years been used to improve muscle mass and performance in horses or for a treatment for horses suffering from degenerative issues.
Boldenone is a modified version of testosterone, it has a double bond between carbons 1 and 2. The characteristics of it are what makes it release much more slowly than other steroids. The initial peak over a few days will then be followed by a slow release for around 20 – 25 days.
It has also been a choice drug for athletes and bodybuilders. The mild nature of the drug on humans makes it a great addition to a cycle however, it is rarely used as a standalone drug.
Users report an increase in lean muscle mass, a more ‘veiny’ and ‘pumped’ look. Equipoise is known to cause an increase in red blood cell production which can increase the feel of a pump and make it much more pronounced (although all steroids do this, boldenone does it much better).
Boldenone is generally a well-tolerated performance-enhancing drug, it should be noted though that increasing red blood cell count can cause serious health issues.
