Similar to Anapolon, Halotestin is a versatile and popular steroid in the field of bodybuilding and sports, since it drastically contributes to the increase in strength and also increases the positive aggression during the training. All you need to know about this steroid is here:
Halotestin is the brand name for the anabolic androgenic steroid fluoxymesterone. In principle, fluoxymesterone is a testosterone molecule which has been quasi-modified. The first modification is 17-alpha alkylation, which is used to make fluoxymesterone available orally. The second modification consists of an addition of a certain substance group, which results in the fact that halotestin can not be converted into estrogen by the aromatase enzyme. The third modification consists of a supplemented atom which is also responsible for the name fluoxymesterone.
Halotestin is an androgen-acting steroid. Even if the anabolic and androgenic steroid Halotestin on the paper has the 19-fold anabolic effect of methyltestosterone, in practice no significant build-up of new muscle mass can be demonstrated. Instead, the use of Halotestin results in a significant increase in strength and aggressiveness, making fluoxymesterone a popular steroid for power athletes and combat athletes. The increase in strength and aggression is not associated with halotestin as in the case of methyltestosterone or Anapolon by a strong swelling and a marked increase in body weight, which leads to the fact that halotestin is a steroid which is often used by athletes of strength and combat who want to get to a specific weight class and no increase in body weight can be achieved. Since the strength and aggression enhancing effect of Halotestin occurs quite soon after the intake, fluoxymesteron is often used only before a hard training unit or a competition.
Bodybuilders use Halotestin besides for the purpose of strength and aggression mainly during the preparation for the competition. Due to the strong androgenic effect of Halotestin and the fact that fluoxymesterone is not converted to estrogen, Halotestin helps to achieve a hard defined appearance with an already low body fat content. These positive optical changes are further promoted by the ability of Halotestin. The larger volume of blood caused by Halotestin also causes a better pump and a more muscular appearance. This property also makes halotestin a steroid that is of interest to persistence athletes because a greater amount of red blood cells can be equated with an improvement in the oxygen uptake capacity of the blood circulation. In addition, Halotestin has a pronounced anti-catabolic effect due to the fact that fluoxymesterone inhibits the conversion of cortisone into catabolic cortisol. This makes it possible to obtain a large part of the muscle mass despite a severe restriction of the caloric intake.
The most popular dosages of Halotestin to support a competition diet are in the range of 30 to 60 mg fluoxymesterone per day, whereby Halotestin is usually combined with further anabolic steroids.
For the strength and aggression increase during the training the dosage is 20 - 30 mg about 30 to 45 minutes before the training.
Because Halotestin can not be converted to estrogen, estrogen-induced side effects such as water retention and gynecomastia are not an issue in the administration of Halotestin. However, due to its high conversion rate to dihydrotestosterone and related active substances, Halotestin must be expected to have significant androgen-related side effects such as oily skin, acne and aggravation of an already existing hereditary hair loss. Headache, nose bleeding and markedly increased aggressiveness are also frequently reported. The 17-alpha alkylation also makes fluoxymesterone an anabolic androgenic steroid which significantly affects the liver, which means that most users use Halotestin for a maximum of 6 to 8 weeks. Although fluoxymesterone does not directly influence the thyroid function, it reduces the body-borne T3 levels by reducing the thyroid-binding globulin level.
