Meet Primobolan the Precarious
Meet Primobolan the Precarious
Once upon a time, a young man and woman were curious about the secrets behind the fountain of youth. They went high and beyond, over the mountains, across the oceans, land after land, only to find out that there is no secret. There is no fountain of youth. There is only cold hard dedication and commitment to fitness and the lifestyle that you desire. Armed with your own strength and focus, you need only the minute of tools to reach your optimum potential. The choice of tools vary depending on the user, in some cases, the not-so-wise have chosen Primobolan. Learn more about Primobolan and why it’s called ‘the precarious’, below.
There are many perspectives to consider when talking about steroids. Some steroids claim they’re the best, others claim the same. Arguably, there is a thin line that categorizes steroids into two:
These steroids are formulated to expedite targeted benefits. Samples of which are Tren, Winstrol, D-Bal, Anadrole, DecaDuro, and the like. It’s obvious what they can do, regardless of whether it’s legal or not, it bulks you up, builds your strength, and enhances your performance, no questions asked.
On the other hand, we have the support steroids, which you take on top of the hard steroids for more immunity, power, and sustainability. One of these is Primobolan.
Primobolan, more popularly known as ‘Primo’ was originally used medically for the treatment of individuals with bone marrow failure. Its medicinal name is methenolone enanthate. It’s primarily administered through injection to the muscle and was vastly used to cure anemia. It is both an anabolic and androgenic steroid and was first introduced in the United States in 1962 under the brand name, Nibal Depot. Its distribution in European countries began in the 1970s. Primo, a synthetic androstane steroid which also makes a derivative of DHT. Quite interesting, right?
Primobolan has been known to be used as a booster steroid, which is taken on top of your harder more potent steroids. It is slightly weaker in anabolic effects versus Masteron, but it gives you the tight vascularity and ripeness of muscle that you’re looking for without giving you estrogenic side effects.
It was also rumored that many famous athletes and bodybuilders were presumed to have taken Primobolan during their prime in the late ’70s to the early ’90s. They say former American baseball champion, Alex Emmanuel Rodriguez— arguably one of the greatest baseball players of all time— has taken Primobolan from 2001-2003, a stressful time for him in the league. Even more, rumors have speculated that Primobolan is also Arnold Schwarzenegger’s choice of steroid. Talk about being the rich and the famous’ go-to steroid.
Why is it such a favorite?
Now, let’s talk about the good that it does to your body and find out why it is such a crowd favorite:
It combats muscle catabolism
One of the many concerns of bodybuilders is muscle catabolism, which is basically losing muscle as you lose fat. During the competition period, bodybuilders cut down on caloric intake as they need to reach the lowest point of their body fat percentage to be able to make their muscles as prominent as possible. However, this is only the ideal scenario. The reality is when they minimize their calories, they’re also losing muscle density. But NOT with Primobolan. Once you’re injected with Primobolan, the body resorts to releasing more nitrogen and sustains this to be able to keep up with the muscle catabolism. Therefore, muscle development is not put into waste.
Increases Nitrogen retention
The building block of the muscle is protein; the building block of protein is good old nitrogen. Nitrogen is crucial for muscle development and maintenance. It is needed for the synthesis of stronger and new muscles. When you have more than enough nitrogen in your body, even during the days when you are cutting, you retain your muscle. If you work out hard enough, you’ll still be able to build muscle in low amounts. However, don’t expect to gain more than 10 lbs. of muscle on Primobolan, unlike hard steroids like Trenbolone or Winstrol.
Primobolan isn’t actually formulated for the bulk up of your muscles. Its primary use is for off-season and is added as a stack on the harder steroids to help you gradually burn off fat and lose weight. Primobolan helps you lose weight while still giving you a ripper body, especially in the delts and traps. How it does this is through rapid lipid lipolysis. Androgen receptors bind in the body during lipolysis, then it speeds up the breakdown of fats.
Boosts the immune system
Of course, you can’t build muscles let alone workout if you’re too sickly to even go to your training and workouts, right? Primobolan helps strengthen your immune system to make sure you won’t miss a single workout. It does this by increasing the WBC (white blood cells) and testosterone levels, making the user more fit and healthier. This goes hand-in-hand with weight loss.
Increased sexual arousal
There is varied feedback regarding the libido-boosting abilities of Primo. Some feel a substantial difference in their libidos, others, notice only a slight increase. All the same, an increase is an increase, and it will ultimately leave you feeling energetic and improve your overall mood altogether.
Optimizes strength and endurance
A research showed that men who are on Primo felt a slight change in their strength, while women on the drug felt a more substantial increase in their strength and stamina.
Because it is, it wasn’t branded as the precarious for nothing. Along with the good that Primobolan can do to your body, is a laundry list of the bad that it can also cause. Below are it’s grizzly side effects:
Virilization and Gynecomastia
Because it is an androgenic and anabolic steroid, side effects such as virilization for women and gynecomastia for men cannot be avoided especially if you’re prone to it. Virilization is the condition when women develop male-pattern hair growth. This could be in the form of mustaches, beards, extreme leg, and axillary hair growth. More than this, other male physical attributes may be experienced by females in virilization or masculinization. On the other hand, for males, as their testosterone levels are altered, the risk of gynecomastia arises.
While on Primobolan, you should be careful and monitor your cholesterol levels. This substance can and may increase LDL or low-density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol) in your body, as well as decrease your HDL or high-density lipoproteins (good cholesterol). So better be safe and monitor, than sorry.
Primobolan is administered through injection, however, it can still be a contributing factor to kidney damage. As you may know by now, one of the major benefits of Primo is it’s nitrogen retention capabilities. However, this may also be considered a disadvantage. Increased protein in the body would cause the kidneys to work double-time as it tries to flush out some of it. Users of Primo must also be able to monitor their kidney every now and then.
Psychological side effects
Similar to many drugs and substances in the market, legal or illegal, there is a high risk of dependency on chemically-synthesized steroids such as Primonobal. We’ve listed some of them here:
Increased aggression or hypomania
Shifty mood swings
Physiological side effects
Depending on the dosage, there is also a risk of damaging the immune system which may cause the following:
Increased blood pressure
Strain in libido
Stunted growth (for pre-adult users)
Sudden bone maturation
Primobolan: How to Use It
If you’re still interested after reading about the side effects, the dosage of intake of Primobolan depend on the gender and body type. Men are usually advised to prescribed for a maximum of 8 weeks at a time at 100 to 150 mg per day. Women are advised lower dosages at 20 to 25 mg only per day, for a maximum period of 4 to 6 weeks.
Price and where to Purchase
Fortunately and unfortunately, because of its adverse side effects, Primobolan is illegal in the United States. The only way you can get your hands on this is if you have a doctor friend who may write a prescription for you (which isn’t ethical and might also be illegal, we aren’t sure) or if you have testosterone deficiency. This product has been banned by the Department of Food Administration since 1989, and entry to the United States is not allowed.
Now, knowing all these, you will realize that the good in Primobolan does not outweigh the bad. While yes, Primobolan is as effective as any steroid out there, it is simply not worth destroying your body for, even if it will look as fit as Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime. The fact that it is illegal and has grave side effects should make you just turn around, walk away, and just say ‘Hasta la vista, baby’
