Equipoise (1,4-androstadiene-3-one-17β-ol, available as the undecylenate ester) is one of the most popular sport steroids. The anabolic steroid (also known as Boldenone, Equigan, Ganabol, and Ultragan) is characterized by a low androgenic potency and high anabolic activity.

The steroid was originally developed as a long-acting injectable methandrostenolone (Dianabol) but does not have properties similar to methandrostenolone. Equipoise has a very long half-life because of the long undecylenate ester attached to the parent steroid. Use of this potent anabolic steroid is commonly associated with improvements in terms of protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, appetite, and release of erythropoietin (EPO) in the kidneys.

Equipoise use has been largely associated with dramatic improvements in the levels of aggression, which is considered a good thing among sportsmen. Use of this anabolic steroid is also effective in promoting stamina, muscle mass, muscle function, and performance besides helping sportsmen recover quickly from fatigue and stress associated with intense workouts.

Also known as Boldenone Undecylenate, Boldenone is commonly used by professional sportsmen as its long life helps them avoid frequent oral dosing or repeated injections while reaping optimum benefits of this legitimate steroid. One of the best things about Equipoise is that it can be made a part of both cutting and bulking cycles and its use does not lead to side effects. If that is not all, proper use of Equipoise does not lead to side effects and its gains are nearly permanent. Another advantage of this steroid is that it does not result in estrogenic side effects like oily skin and gynecomastia unless abused or of low grade. All these and many reasons make Equipoise the “preferred choice” of sportsmen, especially those in Mixed martial arts, Athletics, Major League Soccer, Australian Rules football, Bodybuilding, Boxing, and Cycling.

Some of the popular sportsmen who have used Equipoise are Los Angeles Angels minor league outfielder Reynaldo Ruiz and Philadelphia Phillies minor league pitcher San Lazaro Solano. Josh Barnett and Stephan Bonnar, mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters from the UFC and PRIDE Fighting Championships have also tested positive for Equipoise. Former PRIDE and UFC fighter Phil Baroni, Muay Thai turned MMA fighter Kit Cope, EliteXC Heavyweight Champion Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva, Alexandre Franca Nogueira, Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva, New York Red Bulls’ Jon Conway (goal keeper) and Jeff Parke (defender), and former three time boxing champion James Toney have also used Equipoise.

The recommended dose of Equipoise is 400-600 mg per week for men and 50-150 mg per week for women during a steroid cycle of six to eight weeks. Boldenone can be stacked with Anavar, Testosterone, and Trenbolone or Anadrol and Sustanon during a steroid cycle. It should, however, not be used by those having an existing allergy to Boldenone or any of its ingredients or by pregnant or breastfeeding women or those suffering from breast or prostate cancer. Since Equipoise is a potent drug and its abuse can lead to side effects such as water retention, oily skin, acne, and gynecomastia, it should not be taken without the supervision of a physician.

major-league-soccer-steroidsAfter nine years of testing for anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, the Major League Soccer finally netted violators.

New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Jon Conway and defender Jeff Parke each received a 10-game ban after testing positive for androstatriendione and boldenone. Androstatriendione is actually a metabolite of the anabolic steroid boldenone.

The duo was also fined 10 per cent of their salary. The Associated Press reported that Conway makes $115,000 US this season, while Parke has a base salary of $57,488. The two players are also banned from participating in other competitions while serving their suspensions.

“MLS has one of the strictest drug policies in professional sports and holds its athletes both responsible and accountable for what they put into their bodies,” commissioner Don Garber said. “This is an important statement as to the high standards to which we hold our players.”

MLS has adopted testing for performance-enhancing substances in 1999.

According to MLS, the positive test results was due to the players’ use of over-the-counter supplements obtained from a vitamin store that is part of a national chain.

Eric Stover, the team managing director, expressed his regret over the doping incident. “This is a sad day for our club and our fans,” Stover said. “We are extremely disappointed that Jon and Jeff have tested positive for a substance banned by MLS’s policy.”
