Athletes who use EPO are essentially endurance runners and high-level cyclists, but some weightlifters are starting to use it.
EPO causes an increase in the number of red blood cells in the blood carrying oxygen in the blood.
The result is an increase in the ability to store oxygen and thus an improvement in cardiac performance.
Dosage recommendations vary by method and purpose.
The doses usually recommended are at least 20 IU per kg of body weight (over a period not exceeding 6 weeks).
The effects usually appear after 2 weeks of cycling and peak occurs after the 4th week.
Packaging: 5 vials 3,000 IU (total 15,000 IU per box)
To make it simple with an average dosage, you can do as follows:
- Every 2 days (3 times a week – total week: 4,500 IU): a dose of 1,500 IU (half of the vial)
With 1 box of 5 vials 3,000 IU, this corresponds to 3 weeks of treatment.
- Every 2 days (3 times a week – total week: 6,000 IU): a dose of 2,000 IU
With 2 boxes of 5 vials 3,000 IU, this corresponds to 5 weeks of cure.
