Hi

It would be very beneficial in the long run to adopt a regular exercise schedule as it reduces any risk of developing heart disease and improves longevity. Most experts recommend 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four days a week, along with two or three days of weight-bearing, resistance exercise (such as weight lifting).

Depot testosterone cypionate is an anabolic steroid. It is a form of the male hormone testosterone. Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone which is mainly responsible for the physical and psychological development of men. It is highly anabolic, i.e. has muscle building property. Its anabolic rating is 100. Testosterone exerts its effects by promoting increased nitrogen retention in the muscle.

However depot testosterone cypionate should not be used for muscle building as it has several long lasting side effects because it is metabolized in the body to the female hormone estrogen by the aromatize enzyme.

The adverse effects include development of breast in men (gynecomastia), some fat gain, and testicular shrinkage, loss of sex drive, and water retention which can increase blood pressure.

Hence, it can affect the liver, reproductive system, cardiovascular and nervous system. It also decreases the effectiveness of the body’s immune system, causes hair loss and acne.

Hence, it is not recommended for muscle building or any long term use.

Hope it helps!
