History of Boldenone
Equipoise, also known as Boldenone Undecylenate or EQ, is a
veterinarian steroid developed by CIBA, to be a form of long-acting
injectable dianabol. The intended use was in the horse and cattle
industry. In general, EQ comes in an oil suspension that can be
injected into animals every 6 weeks. There are no legitimate
version of boldenone undecylenate approved by any government
anywhere in the world for human use. All of the Equipoise on the
market is either from approved veterinarian labs or made in an
underground laboratories meant for the black market. Even though it
is meant as veterinarian steroid, boldenone is quite powerful when
used by humans.
What is Equipoise (Boldenone Undecylenate)?
When you look at 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. This ester
chain makes boldenone very oil soluble, to the point where in its’
raw form, before being suspended in oil, boldenone undecylenate is
already a sort of oily substance with the consistency of syrup.
Enzymes in your liver will eventually cleave off the ester chain
from the boldenone hormone, finally setting it free so that it can
interact with androgen receptors in your muscle cells.
What are the side effects of equipoise?
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
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.
What is the half-life of boldenone undecylenate?
Boldenone has a very long half-life, 14 day. In addition, it can
remain in the body for months or even years and is, therefore, not
recommended for use during active sports seasons as the user is
sure to test positive.
How to use Equipoise? What dosages to use?
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
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.
- For men, the average dose is 400-600mgs per week, but I’ve seen
guys go up to 1000mgs per week as long as cycle aids were used.
- For women, the average dose is 25-50mgs per week, but you have to
be very careful. If you see heavy side effects, discontinue EQ or
