Halotestin is one of the most powerful anabolic steroids to ever exist. For the competitive athlete or bodybuilder, Halotestin can have a place. However, for the bodybuilder, other steroids can provide the same level of conditioning without the added stress to the body. At the same time, no other steroid can add the aggression and push that’s sometimes needed to finish a brutal contest diet. If it’s needed, proceed with caution. For the strength athlete, the power lifter or fighter, this steroid can be beneficial. However, once again he must supplement cautiously and remember the potential long-term effects.

Halotestin is one of the most powerful and fast acting steroids on the market. This steroid will not build a lot of mass despite a massive anabolic rating. This is a steroid that is generally known as a raw strength steroid. It’s not too uncommon for some bodybuilders to supplement with Halotestin the last few weeks before a competition. It can produce some nice conditioning effects, as well as really aid in pushing through the end of a brutal diet.
Halotestin carries very specific points of use. The primary effects of Halotestin revolve around strength and aggression. While it can enhance aggression, Halotestin cannot alter your personality, take away your ability to distinguish between right and wrong or alter your decision making process. It can give the individual a stronger, aggressive nature, which, when used wisely, can be a very positive tool.
Due to the strength and aggression promotion, Halotestin is a popular steroid among power lifters, strength athletes and fighters shortly before competition. A few weeks of use leading up to competition is very common, and the boost in strength can potentially be greater than any other anabolic steroid could provide. This same strength and aggression can also be useful to the competitive bodybuilder a few weeks out from his show. Halotestin will also provide the individual with a much harder and more defined look, however you must be extremely lean to really get anything out of it.
Halotestin is not a mass building steroid, and it’s not one that’s used as a foundational steroid in any cycle. It is a short-term use steroid that carries specific benefits for specific purposes.
For the purpose of performance enhancement, Halotestin doses can range from 10-40mg per day. 10mg per day will produce noticeable results, but most will find 20mg per day to be a more beneficial dose that is controllable with proper use by a healthy adult male. If such a dose is tolerated well and more is wanted later on, 40mg per day can be attempted. However, such a dose will greatly enhance the probability of negative effects and may be overkill for some men. Regardless of the dose, 2-4 weeks of use is all that can be recommended. Further, regardless of the dose, like most oral anabolic steroids Halo should be taken on an empty stomach.
Halotestin side effects
Halotestin is not very user friendly, especially when we consider its hepatotoxicity and potential effects on cardiovascular health. It is possible to use Halotestin without problems, but it will take some effort and largely doesn’t warrant use based on its limited purposes of use.
Halotestin does not aromatize and will not produce estrogenic related side effects. Water retention and gynecomastia are impossible with this steroid.
Halo is an extraordinarily androgenic steroid, and as a result, the side effects of Halotestin can surround a strong androgenic nature. This can include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth.
Due to its extreme androgenic nature, the side effects of Halotestin can be extreme in women promoting strong virilization symptoms. Virilization symptoms include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. The effects are so strong the odds of avoiding virilization will be impossible for most women. This steroid has no place in performance enhancing cycles of female athletes.
Halotestin can have a strong, negative impact on cardiovascular health, especially regarding cholesterol management. This can include significant increases in LDL cholesterol and significant suppression of HDL cholesterol. This is largely due to its hepatic nature revolving around its resistance to the liver. Halotestin may also lead to high blood pressure and negatively affect triglyceride levels. Such issues in a long-term capacity could lead to left ventricle hypertrophy. Due to the negative cardiovascular effects of Halo, long-term exposure could increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
It’s imperative that Halotestin user does not suffer from high cholesterol or blood pressure. If the individual is healthy enough for use, it is further imperative he does all he can to promote the continuation of healthy levels and keep a close eye on them. Management should include an extremely healthy lifestyle, a diet rich in omega fatty acids and one that is overall cholesterol friendly. The overall diet should also be limited in simple sugars and saturated fats, and should be conjoined with regular cardiovascular activity. Many will also find supplementing with antioxidant supplements that promote healthy cholesterol levels to be very valuable.
The side effects of Halotestin include natural testosterone suppression, and it will be extreme. Therefore, the inclusion of exogenous testosterone is necessary for most men. Those who do not include exogenous testosterone therapy will fall into a low testosterone condition. Once the use of Halotestin comes to an end and all exogenous steroidal hormones have cleared the system, natural testosterone production will begin again. To enhance the recovery, the implementation of a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) program is often recommended. This will greatly stimulate natural testosterone production, and ensure you have adequate amounts of testosterone for proper bodily function.
Of all oral anabolic steroids, Halotestin carries one of the strongest hepatotoxic natures of all. Liver enzyme values will substantially increase with the use of this steroid. If Halotestin is to be used, the liver must be healthy to begin with. Further, the individual must make an effort to reduce and limit the total amount of stress to the liver. Halotestin should not be used for more than 4 weeks, with many finding 2 weeks of use to be all that’s needed, such as the 2 weeks leading up to competition. The individual should also incorporate the use of a liver detoxifier supplement when using this steroid - in fact, it should not be used without such a protectant. All who use Halotestin are further encouraged to avoid excess alcohol consumption and over the counter medications.
