Primobolan (Metenolone)

Primobolan (Metenolone)

We recently bumped across this primobolan video on YouTube that spoke about the golden era of bodybuilding and the steroid cycles that were prominent in those days.

Well, we all like to mull a lot about the golden era because the pro bodybuilders in those days were just incredible. Not that the current gen guys are doing too bad.

But somehow, the pre-Insulin and Pre-HGH bodies seem to have better symmetry and aesthetics.

One of the theories that we really liked reading about is that most of the big guys didn’t use Testosterone as a base.

Instead, Primo served as the androgen base while Dianabol was the mass builder of choice. Maybe a little deca thrown in occasionally and some Winny pre-contest.

There is another theory that has always done the rounds about Arnold’s fascination towards Primobolan.

If we put a little thought to this, then it does sound like a perfectly viable cycle. Primo has one of the safest steroid profiles in the world. It does not aromatize. In fact, it may well have anti-estrogenic effects.

You can run it for months at end. Club that with Dianabol, which does aromatize like a mofo and will spike your E2.

Does that create the perfect synergy?

Guess we’ll never really know the truth.

For now, here are seven things that anyone who’s considering running a Primobolan cycle must be aware of.

#1 – Primobolan Acetate is an oral steroid. Primobolan Depot is the injectable one

Most steroid users like to throw the term Primo around without actually talking about which variety of the steroid they were using.

Well, there are two types of Primobolan.

There’s Primobolan Acetate, which is the oral version of the steroid. Acetate is the short acting ester and oral Primo has a very short half-life which means that you’d have to dose this, every day.

Then there’s Primobolan Depot, which is the injectable version. It is the same Methenolone hormone. But it comes with the long acting enanthate ester, which lets you get away with two or three pins a week.

The results seem to be slightly better with the Depot version. But that’s based purely on anecdotal reviews.

We must say that Primo is one of the steroids that’s notorious for the Post Injection Pain it causes. So, unless you are all hung up over using injectable steroids only, we’d go for the oral version.

#2 – It is an incredibly safe steroid

We usually don’t throw the word safe and steroids together. That’s paradoxical.

But Primobolan is one of the compounds where we tend to differ a little. It has been used for treating premature infants1. If that isn’t safe, then we don’t know what is.

You can literally run grams of this stuff for months without having the slightest of problems to your system.

There are a few catches though.

Firstly, you must be able to afford Primo. This shit is expensive and to be able to run grams, you are looking at close to $100-150 a week. In exchange, the returns that you get from it are fairly week.

Secondly, you must have a reputed source who can give you legit Primo. Trust us when we tell you this. Primo is an extremely difficult steroid to source. At least the legit stuff is. Most of what’s being sold as Primo in the market is under-dosed Masteron.

#3 – Primo will make you dry, vascular and stronger

A lot of people cannot wrap their heads around the fascination that bodybuilders have with Primo.

Especially because the results that it produces are so mild that most of them won’t even notice anything prominent with their bodies.

But Primobolan is a DHT-derived steroid with such a strong affinity for binding with androgen receptors that it indirectly induces lipolysis. This is where the comparisons with Trenbolone and Masteron stem from.

Even if you aren’t monitoring your diet to a T, you’ll still stay pretty lean while using Primo.

Along with the fat loss, it also boosts vascularity. Any gains that you make during a Primo cycle will be dry and vascular.

Also, get ready for moderate strength gains. If you are struggling to break through a plateau, Primobolan will get it done.

#4 – It’s a terrific cutting compound

One of the most beneficial traits of Primo is that it helps amplify nitrogen retention greatly, which in turn prevents a catabolic state.

This makes it one of the best compounds to run during a cutting cycle.

Also, it has a positive effect on your immune system which is always a bonus when you are in the midst of a harsh cut.

#5 – It works amazingly well with most other steroids

If you are running Primobolan with Testosterone, it will silently amplify the results of the Testosterone cycle without you even noticing that you are using an additional compound.

Primo is not 17CAA, which means that it won’t tax your liver as much as other orals do. It does not aromatize. It does not cause severe androgenic side effects either.

Women athletes run it for extended cycles with very little risk of virilization.

Yet, it will silently enhance the results of your test cycle.

The anti-estrogenic effects that it has will help mitigate the aromatization of Testosterone. One of the reasons why a lot of men on TRT add Primo to their cruise. Makes E2 management super easy and there’s that nice, additional kick to their gym time which nobody hates.

The fat loss helps and so does the vascularity since Test is a pretty wet compound, or can be for a lot of people.

Primo works fabulously with Deca too for that matter.

#6 – Don’t be afraid of large doses

Don’t compare Primo doses with those of any other compound. Primo has to be run in large numbers to be effective. Most people run 600-900mg of the compound. But serious athletes and bodybuilders won’t mind running grams of the stuff.

In an old book on steroid use in the 70s and 80s, it was mentioned that any athlete with access to Pharma grade Primo would run in excess of 1-2 grams at least for 16-20 week cycles.

That should give you a pretty good idea of how easy the compound is on your system.
