Most of steroid users know “Nandrolone Decanoate” under the brand name "Deca Durabolin" by Organon, or short simply as "Deca".
Nandrolone is a Nor-Testosteron-Derivative, which have compared to Testosterone a higher anabolic but less endrogenic effect. This makes Nandrolone Decanoate also a very suitable steroid for women.
The long decanoate ester provides a slow release of nandrolone for up to three weeks. Nandrolone decanoate mild properties made it one of the most popular injectable steroids in the market, athletes favour it for the ability to significantly increase strength and lean muscle mass gains without strong androgenic and estrogenic side effects.
For general anabolic effects, a dosage of 50-100 mg every 3-4 weeks for 12 weeks is recommended. The suitable dosage for physique-enhancing or performance-increasing purpose is 200-600 mg per week, cycles should be 8 to 12 weeks in length, enabling athletes obtaining measurable gains in lean muscle mass and strength. Actually Deca will show its best effect (best gain/side effect ratio) at 4mg per kg of bodyweight/weekly. Nandrolone decanoate is not known as a very "fast" muscle builder, but muscle-building effects are quite noticeable. Roughly one can expect muscle weight gain at about half of the equal amount of testosterone.
Deca is mostly combined with other steroids to reach enhanced effects. For example, a combination of 200-400 mg/week nandrolone decanoate with 10-20 mg/day stanozolol will enhance strongly the look of muscularity and definition when dieting/cutting. A non-aromatizing androgen (Halotestin or Trenbolone) can be used as well to provide an enhanced hardness and density to the muscles. Deca can also be very effectively be included in bulk cycles. The famous "Deca / D-bol" stack (200-400mg /week nandrolone decanoate with 15-25mg Dianabol per day) is a bodybuilding basic for decades. A stronger androgen such ( testosterone or oxymethelone) can as well be substituted, with greater results, but more water retention.
