Equipoise is the trade name for the anabolic steroid known as Boldenone. Normally affixed to the Undecylenate ester, it is an injectable product that is oil-based. Boldenone is ultimately derived from Testosterone, and exhibits slightly different – and in some cases, more favorable – properties than Testosterone. It still holds about the same anabolic strength profile as Testosterone, but possesses a reduction in androgenic effects. Pretty well ever since its inception, Equipoise (also abbreviated as ‘EQ’ among the bodybuilding community) has been almost strictly a veterinary product that is intended for use in animals only. It is moderately popular among athletes and bodybuilders, mostly for its favorable anabolic:androgenic strength ratio, as well as lower estrogenic activity than compared to Testosterone. Equipoise is commonly compared to Deca-Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate) for unknown reasons, and this is because the two cannot really be compared. Nandrolone is by its very nature quite different from Equipoise and belongs under a completely different and separate family of anabolic steroids. Despite this, many people tend to consider Deca and Equipoise to be mutually interchangeable in their cycles.
