Nandrolone (Deca, Npp)

Nandrolone, also known as 19-nortestosterone, is an androgen and anabolic steroid which is used in the form of esters such as nandrolone decanoate and nandrolone phenylpropionate. Nandrolone esters are used in the treatment of anemias, cachexia, osteoporosis, breast cancer, and for other indications.

Esters:


  • Caproate

  • Cyclohexanecarboxylate

  • Cyclohexylpropionate

  • Cypionate

  • Furylpropionate

  • Hexyloxyphenylpropionate

  • Succinate

  • Laurate

  • Propionate

  • Sulfate

  • Undecanoate

Route of administration:


  • Injection (intramuscular and subcutaneous)

  • Eye drops

post your experiences with this compound in regards to:

cycle length, dosage and other compounds used if applicable.
side effects you physically noticed and blood work results.
how you rate the compound overall / comparisons to other compounds of similar nature, your overall gains vs the side effects.

Incredibly synergistic with test. If you want to run a "base" but don't want high test (due to DHT and / or e2 issues) then nandrolone is a perfect addition - it's structurally very similar but is less androgenic, aromatises significantly less, but is more anabolic. Also known to be therapeutic in its ability to increase collagen synthesis and help with joints when training. I personally now settle on 300mg p/w with the same amount of test and use this as a base for more muscle building compounds.

Ran a few times. And will most likely be using again.

first time round was

300mg/week. NPP

ran for 10 weeks.

kick in is fairly quick. I looked more full/better pumps within 2 weeks. After 4 weeks you gaining more lbs. strength wasn't as incredible as far as my physique looked - very pumped, full and vascular.

i feel 300mg NPP to be to low a dose imo.

400mg a week along with 1g test for about nearly 3 months. Strength was good. Weight always going up. You look good on this compound if you're not super high in body fat.

mild sides. I sweat a distinct smell from 19nors. Strangely not unpleasant, but noticeable lol.

i did get night sweats fairly heavy in it. Mood overall was pleasant. Not as good a most boost as other compounds I've used. But I do feel good on it.

Overall, I like nandrolone for a few reasons.

1. I like short esters so it has NPP

2. Its actually fairly cheap.

3. Minimal ( for me ) mental sides

4. Sleep remained stable.

5. No comparison to tren as it's not water down or it's baby cousin. It's nandrolone, and it makes you look PUMPED.

6. Quick kick in time. You'll notice stuff quickly.

And unless you're going below 300mg a week ( see no point what so ever. 400-500mg - you can split that to 2x injections and notice nothing that effects gains or mood.

NPP is a great compound, very gentle on my sleep, hunger went up. Sex drive boost again. Low cost and for what you're getting it's worth it. The sides I got found easy to deal with and don't see them as dampening what im gaining.

i highly regard this drug.

In for the read on this. Deca has been in and out of my plans for next blast a fair few times. But now it's in and the deca is in the wardrobe ready. Current plan is only to run One deca cycle, maybe two depending how the first goes with a view to pack on decent amounts of mass. Plan for the first blast is high dose deca, slightly higher test. If it's the only one I'm making the most out of it!

Last time I ran test with deca I had severe deca dick for 8 months... I'm normal now, going to try another cycle soon but will have the deca dosage higher than test
including masteron or proviron would more than likely offset your problem with a dopamine agonist on hand like cabergoline or pramipexole should progesterone be the route cause

generally the sides regarding libido and mental well being come from the conversion to DHN or dihydronandrolone and subsequent binding at the receptor

fortunately DHT binds stronger to this receptor and as such a decent dose of will in most cases nullify these side effects that 19nors can bring (tren is just a nandrolone derived, both derived from progesterone)

this is why people will often suggest a 2:1 ratio of test to 19nor however this is a sloppy approach imo and opening you up to more sides from large doses of test to simply combat another side

since all you are getting from the test is hopefully a decent amount of conversion to DHT (i say hopefully because who's to say more doesnt just convert to oestrogen and exacerbate sides) you're better off cutting out the middle man and just utilizing a DHT rather than leaving the conversion in the hands of your body

this is where masteron or proviron comes in

rather than taking for example 400mg deca and 800mg test you could take 400mg deca, 400mg test and 400mg masteron
tbh you could probably get away with 250mg masteron since again we are not hoping on a successful conversion rate and instead just injecting what we want to combat the DHN binding

What are differences between NPP and Deca, besides kick in time and more frequent injections ?
Mg per ml is less with npp vs deca

Npp will clear quicker due to the shorter half life

Aside from that you've listed all the differences yet people go on like they're different drugs

I can understand why you'd favour one over the other for specific reasons but once you're 6 weeks deep in either you won't be able to tell the difference

Personally I don't advise less than 400mg deca as your primary anabolic.

If 800mg is your total budget of hormone (for your own reasons and or concerns) then I'd suggest 200mg test, 200mg masteron and 400mg deca

Would be a great low side cycle that you could pack a lot of size on if you eat, train and sleep right

swole troll, I'd go lower if it would still benefit.

Usually just do 300 test 300 Mast then trt.
It's entirely your call I'm just saying that 400mg is a true world apart of 300mg of deca compared to say 400 to 500mg

Deca really opens up at 400mg and is the most effective balance of minimum dosage and gains

Equally I don't see much point in going over 800mg

That's just decas sweet spot ime (400 - 800mg) and many that I have spoken to on this very tried and tested hormone

I appreciate using minimum effective dose, I've made threads about it and it really russled some jimmies but minimum effective is just that

The lowest dose whilst still getting significant results

loved the previous NPP runs, felt great on in my opinion looked the best physique wise, and packed on size easily. Just commenced a run ( week earlier than planned) of test/deca/mast 800/600/600

Has anybody got any experiences where they have ran both.......

Test at TRT & Deca 400mg.

Test 600mg & Deca 400mg.

Thanks
first scenario for me had erection issues. needed to run a moderate dose of masteron to keep sex possible, was 300mg/week mast.

second scenario is basically all I blast with now, either throwing in some var or winstrol @25-50 mg per day.

For me Deca was by far the best drug for strength gains. Even when compared with Tren.

Deca shuts you down badly though which should be a genuine consideration if you are cycling rather than B&C.

Doubt I would use Deca again tho. The water retention is a pain as well.
