Testo-Prop – the most popular and used testosterone ether in the world of bodybuilding among professionals. Beginners and amateurs know practically nothing about this drug. The duration of action (half-life) of the active substance is only 1-2 days. This means that to achieve the desired effect, daily injections are required.
Testo-Prop is so unloved by beginners, mainly because of the frequency of injections administered every day or every other day, as well as their soreness. The injection site undergoes inflammation, which leads to injecting the drug every time into a new place (shins, biceps, deltas). Occasionally there are temperature jumps, heat, which can last from a few hours to several days.
The drug is popular among women athletes, because when you receive it you can avoid intense androgenic effects on the body. Also, the recovery period after hard training is accelerated. When injections once a week and dosages of 25-30 mg, a woman can achieve notable results, without a single hint of masculinization. With the increase in dosage, the results improve, but side effects also come with them.

The mechanism of action of Testo-Prop
Everything is really simple. Previously, they set the task of how to raise the level of the hormone, how to optimize the maximum absorption of synthetic Testosterone propionate. Through the pills, most of the testosterone is destroyed. Therefore, the testosterone ester was invented, which when it enters the aquatic environment – blood – begins to be converted into a normal hormone. And in our case, propionate is a fast ether, when release occurs in the first days
