Most people understand what a beginner is; someone who is new to an endeavor and is taking part in it for the first time or while they may have already taken part are still somewhat fresh. For the anabolic steroid user this is someone who has never supplemented before or who only has a couple cycles under their belt; this is a beginner. Then we have the advanced; advanced steroid cycles are for those who have cycled for a long time, have numerous cycles under their belt and who either by desire or necessity have cause to really push the envelope into what is commonly referred to as “the hardcore level.” What then about an intermediate? The intermediate level is a little harder to define as there is no set in stone one size fits all answer to determine if one is at the intermediate level. We can say you should have at least one cycle that has been completed and most would be best served if they’ve completed at least two. If you’ve completed two cycles does this mean you’re ready for an intermediate level? Absolutely not; it means you can be but it doesn’t mean you have to be. Many performance enhancers will be just fine with beginner style cycles each and every time they supplement but for many others, as is often the case in life, many will want a little more.
All anabolic/androgenic steroids when taken in doses sufficient to promote muscle gain are expected to suppress endogenous testosterone production. Without the intervention of testosterone-stimulating substances, testosterone levels should return to normal within 1-4 months of drug secession. Note that prolonged hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism can develop secondary to steroid abuse, necessitating medical intervention. Primobolan® is generally described as having a low impact on endogenous testosterone production. While this may be true in small clinical doses (20-25 mg daily), this may not be a major distinction when used for physique- or performance-enhancing purposes. In one study, more than half of the patients receiving only 30-45 mg per day noticed a 15-65% suppression of gonadotropin levels. 585 While this is far from having no hormonal impact, the suppression caused by methenolone acetate may still be less pronounced than with many other agents. If Primobolan® is used at moderate doses for less than 8 weeks, hormonal recovery should not be a protracted experience.
While 50mg-80mg is the average range, Anavar dosages can safely reach the 100mg per day range. However, there are two important things we must consider. The Oxandrolone hormone is by no means cheap; 10mg tabs can cost anywhere from $2-$5 a piece depending on the source and brand. Further, regarding the 100mg mark, Anavar dosages above this mark will not make a massive difference. The Oxandrolone hormone appears to have a fast falloff point past the 100mg mark. Granted, past 100mg you might see a little more progress, but nothing of any true substance and by no means in any way that has that justified what you’ll be paying for it.
