Equipoise, also called as Boldenone Undecylenate or EQ, is a form of long-acting injectable dianabol. you can look boldenone on paper, you can see it's basically the same hormone as dianabol, except for one huge change. The dianabol hormone is 17AA for oral use, and only has an effective 8 hour half life because of it. Equipoise lacks the 17AA group but actually has a very long undecylenate ester chain attached instead. Boldenone has a very long half-life, about 14 days.
Equipoise is fairly mild with side effects, yet it still has some - just the way any steroid would. These side effects are common to most steroids: acne, unnatural hair growth, oily skin, prostate, hoarseness or deepening of voice, unnatural hair growth, and unusual hair loss.
On of the biggest problems with equipoise is it's known for causing acne on the chest, back and shoulder areas. Therefore, if you're acne prone, make sure to use anti-bacterial and anti-acne soap and lotion daily.
Another side effect that's anecdotal in nature is the boost in appetite, this has been reported by many users in the industry. Multiple clients that I work with have reported constant hunger and cravings, which is something to consider if you're cutting with equipoise. I suggest you start with a lower dose of EQ if you're cutting to control possible appetite problems.
Dosage and cycle:
Equipoise is used by athletes and bodybuilders to increase endurance, muscle mass and the production of red blood cells in the body. It is best known for providing slow but steady gains during bulking cycles (usually called the EQgains). EQ can be used in dosages ranging from 200mg to 600mg per week for as long as 12 weeks.
In recent years, equipoise has become a favorite among powerlifters and is considered by coaches as an ideal replacement for deca durabolin. This is primarily because the quality of muscle mass and strength gains that are experienced while on equipoise happen without the nasty side effects of deca. Also, EQ has a positive effect on the circulation of blood in the body; allowing for maximum blood flood to muscles during intense training sessions.
In medical use, equipoise can promote erythropoietin (EPO) stimulating factor that, in turn, stimulates the bone marrow growth that leads to an increased production of red blood cells. More red blood cell means more hemoglobin, and a higher oxygen carrying capacity. EQ may also result in changes to electrolyte levels because of its potent mineralocorticoid properties.
