Testosterone cypionate is a slow-acting injectable ester of the primary male androgen -testosterone. Testosterone, the main anabolic hormone in men, is the basis of comparison by which all other anabolic/androgenic steroids are judged. As with all testosterone injectables, testosterone cypionate is highly favored by athletes for its ability to promote strong increases in muscle mass and strength. What is more interesting is that while a large number of other steroidal compounds are available since the introduction of testosterone injectables, they are still considered to be the dominant bulking agents among bodybuilders. To some extent it is believed that these are among the most powerful mass drugs available, testosterone cypionate included.

Testosterone is readily aromatized in the body to estradiol (estrogen). Elevated estrogen levels can cause side effects such as increased water retention, body fat gain, and gynecomastia. Elevated levels of testosterone are likely to produce androgenic side effects including oily skin, acne, and body/facial hair growth. Men with a genetic predisposition for hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) may notice accelerated male-pattern balding. Anabolic/androgenic steroids can have deleterious effects on serum cholesterol. This includes a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol values and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol values, which may shift the HDL to LDL balance in a direction that favors greater risk of arteriosclerosis.
Although active in the body for a longer time, testosterone cypionate is usually injected on a weekly basis for physique- or performance-enhancing purposes. The usual dosage is in the range of 200-600 mg per week, taken in cycles of 6 to 12 weeks in duration. Intake at this level is assumed to provide exceptional gains in muscle size and strength.
