Now that we understand what the boldenone acetate ester is all about we can talk about the unique properties of this steroid. One of the advantages of boldenone is its structure, which makes it unlikely to convert to estrogen. Though, it does have an affinity to cause some estrogen problems if used at high dosages, making water retention almost a non-existent issue compared with other compounds. This makes boldenone acetate a good choice for endurance athletes who do not want to carry around water while they run, swim, or bicycle.
Furthermore, boldenone acetate also has mild side effects with users reporting very little estrogenic issues and some appetite changes (which could be beneficial for those trying to slow bulk). This makes this steroid a good choice for those who want to add lean bulk. Since boldenone acetate has a shorter ester than the undecylenate version, you can shorten the cycle to get faster results without having to wait for weeks.
Typically, users will talk about how they improved their endurance on this compound, had low side effects, and were able to add some mass and strength in the process.
In order to understand how this particular acetate version of boldenone differs from the normal one with the undecylenate ester, we must first understand what esters and half-lives mean. The most popular version of Equipoise (EQ) is the undecylenate version with a half-life of 14 days, whilst the acetate ester’s half-life is just 3 days. Obviously, this is a huge disparity.
Long esters vs. Short esters
The beautiful part of anabolic steroids are the long lasting effects that reduce the frequency of necessary injections, which would be the main advantage of using long esters. After all, wouldn’t it be hard if you had to inject every couple hours? However, once you stop injecting the long ester it will take weeks to clear out. This is a very important issue because until the esters are completely gone, your HPTA will not be able to recover and produce hormones on its own again.
On the flip side, the advantage of short esters is that they are in and out of the body much faster, making a huge difference if you want to run numerous cycles per year, as the required time off would be decreased. Moreover, the short ester can be very beneficial if you are concerned with side effects bothering you.
