The Deal on Frontloading
This Article is strictly referred to long ester based gears cycles.
What is frontload?
Loading the compound in the first weeks to facilitate its access in the blood
We all know that when we are going to run an injectable steroids cycle with long
esters (testosterone Enanthate, Cypionate, Deca Durabolin, Boldenone,
Primobolan) we should have to wait 3 to 6 weeks to get a the called "kick",
meaning a full peak of the compound's activity, in order to reach the maximum
anabolic state and keep it until the end of the cycle.
Needless to say that when we are in a high anabolic state, protein synthesis is
raised, and this is the time to add some good calories to fully avail of the
massive transport of aminoacids in the muscle cells.
It is not easy, expecially for a first timer, to have to wait for the chemicals
to "kick in", so we're going to "kick start" our cycle through one of these
1. Adding an oral in the first 4-5 weeks of cycle to get some gains even from
the beginning days, mostly water gains for the majority of cases though.
2. Substituting the long ester with a shorter one for the first 2-3 weeks, i.e.
Test Propionate to start and Test Enanthate for the rest of the course.
Intermediate users also use to add a short ester in conjunction with the longer
cousin and run both for the first 2-3 weeks, then keep just the long esterified
substance for the entire duration of the therapy.
3. FRONTLOADING the long esterified compound in the first week doubleing the
dose. This is in my opinion the most effective manner to get benefits yet from
the first weeks of a long esterified steroid intake.
For this reason I'm gonna explain this more accurately in the following
However, before considering how this method works, I'd say to have a peek to the
most used long esterified compounds' duration (activity time):
Main Long Esters Active-Life:
Enanthate : 8 days
Undecylenate : 7-9 days
Decanoate : 14-16 days
Cypionate : 15-16 days
Let's examine for example a 14 days-active ester.
Since any esterified compound is expelled from the body after its active-life
duration, we will assume a theoretic injection protocol of 1 shot per week
(every 7 days, its half-activity, or half-life).
Standard injection protocol at 500mg/week for 4 weeks:
WEEK 1 : 500mg; substance left at the end of the current week: 250mg
WEEK 2 : 500mg + 250mg; substance left at the end of the current week: 375mg
WEEK 3 : 500mg + 375mg; substance left at the end of the current week: 437.5mg
WEEK 4 : 500mg + 437.5mg; substance left at the end of the current week:
This is to demonstrate that we won't never get those 500mg we're injecting every
week all the time as the minimum amount of compound guaranteed in the blood.
So how do I make sure to have at least the amount of gear I'm injecting every
week regularly circulating in the blood?
This is freaking simple, you just have to add 1 and nothing more than 1 more
dosage of the substance in the first week. Just there.
This concept is easily intelligible following the example:
WEEK 1 : 1000mg (2x500mg); substance left at the end of the current week: 500mg
WEEK 2 : 500mg + 500mg; substance left at the end of the current week: 500mg
WEEK 3 : 500mg + 500mg; substance left at the end of the current week: 500mg
WEEK 4 : 500mg + 500mg; substance left at the end of the current week: 500mg
And so on...
With this protocol the compound is quickly active from the first week, just for
having frontloaded it with 1 more shot than the usual protocol, and this way the
chemical levels are even more stable (=less sides) and higher in the blood.
YES, this is the real deal on how to get relatively quick results from a long
