Athletes who use EPO are essentially endurance runners and high level cyclists, but some weightlifters begin to use it.
As everyone knows, the red blood cells are the carriers of oxygen in the blood. That is why these athletes have been interested in EPO, which causes an increase in the number of red blood cells. The result is an increased blood’s ability to store oxygen and thus improve cardiac performance.
The doses usually taken are at least 20 IU per kg of body weight over a period of no more than 6 weeks. The effects usually appear after 2 weeks of cycle.
