Methenolone Enanthate is an anabolic androgenic steroid that was first released in 1962 by Squibb under the trade name Nibal (oral) and Nibal Depot (injectable). This was a very short-lived product on the U.S. market and by the mid-1960’s the German pharmaceutical powerhouse Schering would own all rights to the Methenolone hormone. Through Schering the hormone would be released as Primobolan (oral) and Primobolan Depot (injectable). The injectable Depot version will be our focus here. For information on oral Primobolan, please see the Primobolan profile.
It represents one of the more popular anabolic steroids in performance enhancing circles, especially bodybuilding due to the Arnold Schwarzenegger stigma that surrounds it. It’s often been said this was his favorite anabolic steroid, and while he used it this stigma has created a misunderstanding of the steroid for some. This isn’t all that surprising, attach Arnold’s name to anything like this and you’ll make it sell. In a performance capacity, Primobolan Depot is not what we can call a strong mass promoting steroid. For the male athlete, it’s also not what we can call a foundational steroid. However, man or woman most will find Primobolan Depot to be far more effective and beneficial than its oral counterpart. Despite being a relatively weak mass builder, this steroid most certainly has its place in performance enhancement but the key to obtaining the benefits is understanding the proper points of use. This is where many steroid users fall short. They often expect certain things from certain steroids that it cannot do and are left scratching their head.
