Cypionate can be stacked with compounds other than these ones, but the user should assess his or her goals and decide which steroids and going to bring about what types of gains. For mass, testosterone is excellent choice, and more testosterone should be preferred over stacking with other compounds for that express purpose. To minimize water retention, certain steroids may be preferred and this is a good decision, since more testosterone cannot reduce these water gains (and in fact may only cause them to become worse). This is one example of how stacking cypionate (or any other testosterone) can be very beneficial. However, for the first time user, a recommended cycle is testosterone only, and cypionate is a good choice. Once again, due to its extreme length of action and ability to maintain stable steroid blood levels while minimizing injection frequency.
