Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. 
Equipoise is highly effective not only for mass but also for contest preparation (cutting) since it aromatizes very poorly. Muscle hardness and density can be greatly improved when Boldenone is combined with steroids like Proviron (mesterolone), Parabolan (trenbolone hex), Halotestin (fluoxymesterone), or Winstrol (stanozolol). For cutting it also stacks with nandolone phenilpropionate, possible cycle is 300-500 mg of boldenone plus 300-500 mg of nandrolone-ph for 6-8 weeks. It could be used in a final (relief) part of a longer cycle at 100-200 mg/week along with winstrol (stanozolol) 50 mg/day for around 6 weeks.
