Description Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca-Durabolin)
Deca-durabolin or Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate is a very popular anabolic steroid for bulking. It has different brand names (e.g. Retabolin or Nandrolona-D), but among bodybuilders it is called “Deca“.
One of its prominent features is that it has no liver toxicity. With proper diet it can result in great strength and size gains, and decreased body fat. Besides, nandrolone is good not only for sport, but also for some health issues. By increasing hematorcrit level and bone density it is helpful in treating certain forms of cancer. Also anemia and osteoporosis, which is quite common in females during menopause.
Deca-durabolin is a powerful anabolic. It increases protein synthesis in muscles, and thus causes noticeable muscle growth. However, these results can be achieved only in case of good diet, when sufficient amount of proteins is supplied. As Nandrolone keeps water in connective tissues, it can even cure pain in joints. The effect of water retention caused by this compound, is considerably larger comparing to the one caused by testosterone. This makes it popular among athletes who suffer pains in the shoulders, elbows and knees. Thus Deca-Durabolin is their steroid of choice. Deca can accelerate recovery if you take it at the dosage of 400 mg per week.
Dosage and usage of Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate:
Due to its ability to induce protein synthesis Deca-Durabolin is used for a bulking part of pre-contest cycle. But the other side of it is water retention. The usual dosage for men is 400 mg/ week, but also varies between 200 – 600 mg per week. You can reach the optimal results with 4 mg per 1 kg (2 mg/pound) of body weight.
Its anabolic effect is dosage dependent – in the scale 200-600mg it grows accordingly with a dose. In dosages more than 600 mg / week the anabolic effect does not exceed the effect of 600 mg but side effects start to prevail positive ones. Thus 1000mg is not better than 600 mg. The preferable dosage for beginners is 200 mg/week, max 400 mg/week. Divide Deca-duraboline (nandrolone decanoate) into equal dosages and inject it twice a week deep in muscles.
Combinations with Deca
Deca-Durabolin goes well with other steroids such as Dianabol (methandienone) and Testosterone. The classic combination of Deca / Dianabol is the following – 15 – 40 mg Dianabol / day and 200 – 400 mg Deca / week. Better and faster results may come with 400 mg Deca / week and 500 mg Sustanon 250 / week. By adding 30 mg of Dianabol / day to the latter combination you can get enormous gain in strength and muscle size. Professional bodybuilders also combine deca with anapolon (anadrol/oxydrol) instead of dianabol.
The combination of deca 400 mg/week + dianabol 40-50 mg/day during 8 weeks can be a good starting cycle. Don’t forget about anti-estrogens starting from 3 week and 1 week after the cycle- tamoxifen or clomid (1 tab ED). For this very cycle take LIV-52 to enhance liver protection, which makes the cycle absolutely safe.
Thus the whole 8 week cycle comprises: Deca: 3200mg, Dianabol ~ 2240-2800mg, Nolvadex/Clomid: 50 tabs, Liv-52: 1 bottle.
Due to its excessive water retention Deca-Durabolin is not an optimal steroid for competition. But many athletes still use it if they have enough time to “dry” before contest. To avoid water retention a bodybuilder may alternatively use faster-acting duraboline (nandrolon-phenilpropionate) instead of long-acting deca (Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate). There is also classic pre-contest combination: Deca-Durabolin 400 mg/week, Winstrol 50 mg/day, Parabolan 228 mg/week, and Anavar (Oxandrolone) 25-30 mg/day (10 mg tabs).
In PROPER doses injectable Nandrolone (Deca-Durabolin) does not produce any adverse effects on the liver even if you take it for years. Even those who have liver diseases can use it. You can quickly eliminate the negative liver effect of deca/dianabol combination if you stop using dianabol. A more liver-friendly combination in this aspect could be Deca Durabolin 400 mg/week with Andriol 280mg / day, but PCT is still necessary in this case.
Detection times of Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate:
The traces of Deca Durabolin can be detected for quite a long time. In extreme occasion for up to 18 months. So, if doping test is expected it is better to keep yourself from taking it.
Side effects and Post Cycle Therapy with Deca
If you are under age of 21, it is harmful for your health to take Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate, especially in prepubescent period. If you take Deca alone the conversion into estrogen begins at a dose of 400 mg per week, but it does not mean that you should ignore it completely. Aromatization is common for all steroids with androgenic component. They may cause growing breast and female-pattern of fat deposits, so it is wise to use anti-estrogen to avoid such side effects.
Androgen-related side effects also appear at dosages exceeding 400 mg. Among them blood pressure, reduced blood clotting (frequent nose bleeding), oily skin and acne. There are also cases of headache and sexual overstimulation. Deca-Durabolin can suppress spermatogenesis if you use it in very high doses for a long time. Like almost all steroids it inhibits production of gonadotropins in hypophysis, which results in reduced testosterone production in testes.
You can prevent this by using clomiphen/tamoxifen AFTER the cycle. The other common side effect is water retention, which is beneficial in case of pain in joints. You can eliminate it by taking proviron and tamoxifen (zymoplex, novadex, cytotam) or clomiphen. 1 tab of clomiphen/tamoxifen during the cycle, 3 tabs for the first day after it and 2 tabs / ED (every day) for two-three weeks afterwards. Take proviron in case of “heavy” cycle when tamo/clom is not efficient enough.
Among classic female combinations one should mention Deca + Primobolan + winstrol depot or Deca+oral primo / Deca+oral winstrol. The dosage of Deca up to 100 mg per week is safe for women. Using higher dosages may cause androgen-related side effects, which is called virilization – “men`s” voice, growth of body hair, acne, increased libido, clitorishypertrophy.
One can avoid some problems by using fast-acting duraboline (50-100 mg of nandrolon-phenilpropionate / week) instead of Deca. But even long-acting Deca at this dosage (50-100 mg/week) in most cases causes no problems. Thus females can combine it with Anavar 10 mg/ ED (every day).
Both substances in low dosage contain very small androgenic component, and cause virilization only in rare occasions. Deca (Nandrolona-D Nandrolone Decanoate) gives you noticeable muscle growth, meanwhile Anavar produces measurable strength gain without water retention. Taking primobolan instead of Deca in this combination makes a cycle safer, but with less gains.
