Testosterone Cyclohexylproprionate (Test-CHP) is a long-estered testosterone compound that has a half-life in the body of 13 days. Because of its long ester, Test-CHP tends to cause more water retention and therefore is not a good steroid for cutting cycles, but is quite effective in a bulking cycle of any stack.
Testosterone is the male sex hormone responsible for many of the physical and emotional traits of men. It creates the deeper voices, sex drive, aggression and, of coarse, larger muscles in men. Testosterone makes the muscles retain more nitrogen, which in turn makes the muscle synthesize proteins better, producing larger muscles.
The downside to testosterone steroids is that they aromatize, or turn into estrogen, in the body. When the body has too much estrogen it begins to take on female characteristics â€“ gynocomastia, water retention, fat gain, loss of sex drive and testicular shrinkage are all most certain side effects of taking testosterone and letting it aromatize in the body. Test-CHP also may convert to DHT in the body and can cause baldness and prostrate problems.
