Halotesin has earned itself a strong reputation for being one of the most powerful, fast-acting steroids
Why do bodybuilders love Halotesin?
-Halotestin helps to increase hemoglobin and improve the structure and mass of red blood cells – this helps your muscles and tissue cells to benefit from higher levels of oxygen and nutrients, aiding their growth, development, and recovery from exercise.
-Improves your strength – tying into the point above, the more fuel/nutrients/oxygen your cells receive, the longer you will be able to work out. This helps maximize muscle development, helping you to get stronger.
-Increased energy levels – this can give you the push you need to keep working hard and training.
-Fat loss – during a cutting cycle, Halotestin can boost your fat burn and protect your body from muscle wastage; enabling you to look hardened, lean and chiseled.
NOTE: Whilst Halotestin can rapidly build up your strength, it won’t offer you massive gains. If anything, it is better for cutting thanks to its fat burning skills.
How Halotestin works
Endogenous androgens are responsible for encouraging normal growth and development in male sex organs, as well as maintaining secondary sex characteristics e.g. the growth/maturation of your prostate, penis, and scrotum; facial, chest and pubic hair; vocal cord thickening (resulting in a voice drop); musculature and fat distribution.
Now when your body is lacking in testosterone, all of these areas will become affected, which is where Halotestin can help.
As an androgenic anabolic steroid, it can fulfill the role of endogenous androgens and help you to: retain nitrogen, sodium, and potassium (increasing oxygenation of muscles and tissues cells); encourage protein synthesis; strengthen bones, and stimulate red blood cells.
Halotestin dosage and cycles
For optimum results, you should only use Halotestin for a short amount of time. 2-4 weeks max. AND you should only have it at the end of your cutting cycle.
Now, you’ll find some bodybuilders who’ll use it for the full 8 weeks. But, using it for more than 4 weeks could endanger your health and increase your risk of side effects.
In terms of actual dosage, 10-20mg per day is pretty common. However, if you’ve used it before and have previously experienced positive Halotestin results, then it is safe to increase your dosage to 30-40mg per day.
Just remember that you’ll have to split this dose in two (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) as the half-life for Halotestin (fluoxymesterone) is 6-9 hours. Also, it is best taken 30 minutes to 1 hour before you train.
Possible Side Effects
It can also cause all of the following – even if you’re careful and behave!
Nausea and vomiting
Oily skin/ acne
Increased/decreased libido (loss/boost in sex drive)
Change in skin color (cholestatic jaundice)
Alterations to liver function
Increased aggression/roid rage
Menstrual problems (in women)
Virilization (women) – deepening of voice, excess body hair and clitoral enlargement (this one isn’t always reversible once you stop).
Painful/prolonged erections – 4 hours or more (rare)
Water retention – extra body water can increase your risk of heart failure (NOTE: look for signs of tiredness, hands/ankles/feet swelling and shortness of breath whilst lying down)
Decreased blood glucose levels (in diabetic patients due to its metabolic effects)
Decreased T4 serum levels and increased resin uptake of T3 and T4 (thyroid hormones) – although there is no evidence of thyroid dysfunction.
Decreased sperm production/reduced male fertility
