For the off-season athlete there is no anabolic steroid more important or beneficial than testosterone. High levels of testosterone will promote significant increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This is assuming that the individual is consuming adequate calories. Compounds like Testosterone Propionate are not magical, you will still need to feed your body enough calories. During an off-season period of growth, this means total caloric intake will need to be slightly above maintenance. This will, unfortunately, promote body fat gain. However, the key to a successful off-season is gaining lean tissue while minimizing body fat gain to the fullest extent possible. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate you will be able to achieve this more efficiently. High testosterone levels will promote a stronger metabolic rate. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, but you should be able to make better use of your calories.
Males with Delayed Puberty: Various dosage regimens have been used; some call for lower dosages initially with gradual increases as puberty progresses, with or without a change in maintenance levels. Other regimens call for higher dosages to induce pubertal changes and lower dosages for maintenance after puberty. The chronological and skeletal ages must be taken into consideration, both in determining the initial dose and in adjusting the dose. Dosage is generally within the lower ranges and only for a limited duration, for example, 4 to 6 months. X-rays should be taken at appropriate intervals to determine the amount of bone maturation and skeletal development (see INDICATIONS and WARNINGS).
"A very interesting note concerning esters of testosterone is the form testosterone phenylpropionate. This is a propionate form of ester with a phenol group added to it, yet still has a half life very close to propionate (3-4 days). The phenol group is a carbon ring which adds considerable weight to the ester. Who cares you say? Just want to take your shot you say? Hold on a minute, this has huge application for getting huge. Test phenylpropionate weights /mol (let’s round this up to 421. Take the 288 (weight of testosterone molecule) and divide it once again by the total molecular weight of the drug you are using (phenylpropionate=421). This gives us a percentage of 68%. Phenylpropionate is found in testosterone mixture, when found alone it is usually 100mg per cc (just like regular propionate). However at only 68% pure testosterone, a 100mg shot of phenylprop has only 68mg of testosterone!!"
