Primobolan is very limited in its use, with its primary restrictions being that of its use in cutting cycles and phases of fat loss. This is due to Primobolan’s weak anabolic strength rating, and it is because of this poor anabolic strength that Primobolan doses must be run in the higher range in comparison to the majority of anabolic steroids. This leads to one of the reasons as to why Primobolan would not be utilized for bulking or lean mass addition, as the Primobolan doses required for such an anabolic effect would be astronomical. This is why Primobolan is often stacked with other more powerful compounds. Even when utilized in a cutting cycle, which is a period in which anabolic steroids are run at lower than normal doses, Primobolan must still be utilized at a fairly high dose range. The use of anabolic steroids at lower doses during cutting or fat loss phases is due to the fact that during periods of fat loss in which the user is in a caloric deficit, the primary concern with such a goal is the preservation of muscle mass rather than the addition of new mass. As a result, anabolic steroids during cutting cycles do not require mass-building or bulking doses what so ever. Primobolan doses are somewhat of an exception here, where it must be used at a higher dose in order to overcome its unfortunately poor anabolic strength rating.
Medical Primobolan Dosage
Medical prescription guidelines for Primobolan doses can be broken apart into two categories: 1. Oral Primobolan doses, and, 2. Injectable Primobolan doses.
1. Injectable Primobolan (Methenolone Enanthate): Medical prescription guidelines for the injectable variant of Primobolan called for an initial dose of 200mg, followed by 100mg weekly for the duration of therapy. Depending on the medical condition being treated, Primobolan doses can land anywhere in the range of 100mg every 1 – 2 weeks or 200mg every 2 – 3 weeks. There exist no separate medical dosing guidelines for female patients.
2. Oral Primobolan (Methenolone Acetate): Medical prescription guidelines for the oral variant of Primobolan were that of 100 – 150mg per day for no longer than a 6 – 8 week period. Just as with the injectable Primobolan prescription guidelines, there are no separate instructions for female Primobolan doses.
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Primobolan Dosages
For the purpose of performance and physique enhancement, Primobolan doses, as previously mentioned must be run at what would be considered a very high dose in comparison to the majority of other anabolic steroids.
1. Injectable Primobolan (Methenolone Enanthate): Beginner Primobolan users will normally find 400mg per weeky Primobolan doses to be sufficient enough to assist the user in achieving their goals. There is seldom ever any need for beginners to venture above 400mg weekly due to the initial use and allowing the individual to gather a feel for the drug’s effectiveness. Intermediate Primobolan doses will land in the range of 400 – 700mg weekly, often being run closer to the higher end of 700mg weekly. Intermediate users will find Primobolan’s anabolic strength quite weak in comparison to other anabolic steroids, and must be utilized at higher doses in order to see any physique/performance changes exclusive to Primo. Advanced users will often end up utilizing Primobolan doses in the range of 800 – 1,000mg per week or greater. For the purpose of preservation of lean mass during a cutting cycle, Primobolan doses do not need to be run this high but on average, these are the doses required to elicit noticeable lean mass increases from a weak anabolic steroid such as Primobolan. However, when run at the appropriate dose range for such effects, Primobolan can put up a display as one of the most impressive anabolic steroids where lean mass addition is concerned.
Female users will find physique and performance enhancing Primobolan dosages in the range of 50 – 100mg weekly without issues of virilization side effects and symptoms. The injectable format of Primobolan, however, has a lower rate of use among females in comparison to the oral variant due to problems over the control of blood plasma levels of the hormone, and the timing and scheduling of injection administrations to achieve this.
2. Oral Primobolan (Methenolone Acetate): Beginner Primobolan users will normally find the 50 – 100mg daily range to be an effective dose with oral Primobolan. Intermediate users are known for running oral Primobolan in the range of 100 – 150mg daily with great results, and advanced users will find the range of 150 – 200mg daily to be quite effective. The oral variant of Primobolan is one of two oral anabolic steroids (the other being Andriol which is orally administered Testosterone Undecanoate) that do not present any measure of hepatotoxicity. Therefore, higher doses of oral Primobolan can indeed be utilized but it must be noted that oral Primobolan does still possess a measure of resistance to metabolism and breakdown in the liver, and therefore the risk of hepatotoxicity from Primo must not be completely ignored, especially as Primobolan doses of the oral format are increased to higher and higher amounts.
Proper Administration and Timing of Primobolan Dosages
The oral Primobolan variant can be administered once daily and there is no requirement to split doses up into several throughout the day, as the half-life of oral Primobolan is that of approximately 2 – 3 days. Therefore, single daily dosing is acceptable and recommended in order to maintain proper stable steady peak blood plasma levels of the hormone.
The injectable Primobolan preparation holds a half-life of 10 days due to the Enanthate ester attached to Methenolone, and it therefore must be administered twice weekly, with each injection spaced evenly apart from one another. For example, a total weekly dose of 400mg per week would be split into a 200mg injection on Monday, followed by another 200mg injection on Thursday. Although individuals can still ‘get by’ with a single weekly injection, twice weekly injections are ideal and reccomended in order to maintain stable and steady peak blood plasma levels.
Expectations and Results From Primobolan Dosages
Primobolan is a very weak anabolic steroid and therefore impressive lean muscle and mass gains with Primobolan should not be expected. Even higher and higher doses of Primo will not elicit the same types of lean mass gain that a miniscule dose of a very powerful anabolic steroid like Trenbolone would provide, for example.
Therefore, Primobolan is often stacked alongside other anabolic steroids, and many experienced anabolic steroid users would never utilize Primobolan solitarily on its own as it is well known as being a very poor anabolic steroid to be run on its own. With all of this being established, Primobolan’s gains in and of itself is known to be quality lean muscle gains without the added water retention or possible fat gain/retention.
