People want everything in life fast; fast cars, make fast money, with making fast muscle not far behind on this list. However, as most people end up finding out, good things do not come fast and easily, they must be developed and earned over the long run. Before dropping your hopes, there is some good news; those that want fast muscular gains could be in luck, since they are a few anabolic steroids which produce fast pronounced effects in as little as days!
So What Are The Fastest Acting Ones?
There are actually a few good ones to consider;
Oh no here we go, testosterone of course. Well of course, testosterone is the gold standard by which all anabolics are measured, and for good reason; it scores an anabolic and androgenic score of 100 making it the alpha male hormone. Testosterone propionate was the first commercially available testosterone preparation on the market, containing pure testosterone base bound to an ester. Esters can be simply compared to “chains”, some are longer than some, and as such may take a longer time and be more difficult to break. In the case of testosterone propionate, consider it to be attached to a single link chain, one that can easily be broken to liberate free testosterone to exert its actions. It exerts all the effects that testosterone is known for; promoting muscle growth, preventing catabolism, increasing aggression and libido, as well as the unwanted effects. The big advantage, however, of using testosterone propionate is the control it gives to the user; with injections needing to be administered every other day, in the case of a side effect that is difficult to manage, discontinuation of the drug results in rapid clearance of it from the body. Within a week clear changes to muscle mass and strength levels will be obvious, in addition to improved mood and a bit later on, reduced fat levels.
Dianabol is well known throughout the bodybuilding world because of its speed in developing brutal strength and size, and is usually initiated at the beginning of a cycle of injectables. Dianabol is the most popular steroid worldwide, due in part to its oral delivery, and its dramatic effectiveness. Dianabol is normally indicated to be taken for periods of time not exceeding 6 weeks ,since it is very toxic to the liver, and because of the short half life of this drug in the body( time it takes for 50% to be eliminated), which is about 6-8 hours, multiple daily dosing frequencies is necessary. The short half life is also the reason why it elicits rapid gains in strength and size. A dose of even 20 mg daily will provide almost anyone with almost immediate results in size and strength, although much of the gain is likely to be water weight.
Considered the god of oral steroids, this is the most brutal mass gaining anabolic, with all over increases in body mass being seen over a short period of time. The side effects of this drug are also to be noted, as with higher potency comes the risk of more adverse effects. Anadrol carries a high risk of causing cirrhosis of the liver or even liver cancer, as well as being highly aromatizable (converting to estrogen easily). An anti-estrogen will almost always be needed; so much of the bulk seen may be due to water retention.
So Who Takes First Place?
None of them- may sound surprising to you, but there is actually one that beats them all. And that anabolic steroid is Testosterone Suspension.
This is testosterone in its purest form; attached to no ester and administered via injection, this steroid takes effect in literally minutes, but also needs frequent administration to keep blood hormone levels stable. Daily administration is a necessity, with multiple dosing a better but more unlikely option. In terms of potency, testosterone suspension is also the strongest, with 100 mg of the compound supplying 100 mg of pure testosterone, as opposed to an ester like enanthate where 100mg of compound will only release about 72mg of pure testosterone. Testosterone suspension is hands down the fastest acting anabolic steroid. Thanks in part to its speed; it can be utilized effectively (but unethically) by athletes requiring an immense increase of strength in a short time, such as power lifters. The administration of it a couple minutes before a power lifting meet will more likely than not guarantee good placing in that event, and coupled with its rapid clearing from the blood, detection may be difficult. Sounds too good to be true? Well it’s not, the only major issue with it being the frequency of dosing and the pain associated from injections. It is suspended in a water vehicle, not oil which functions partially as a lubricant for the drug.
