Introduction to Testosterone enanthate
Testosterone enanthate is an oil based injectable steroid , designed to release Testosterone slowly from the injection site (depot). Once administered, serum concentrations of Testosterone enanthate will rise for several days, and remain markedly elevated for approximately two weeks. It may actually take three weeks for the action of Testosterone enanthate to fully diminish. For medical purposes Testosterone enanthate is the most widely prescribed Testosterone, used regularly to treat cases of hypogonadism and other disorders related to androgen deficiency. Since patients generally do not self- administer such injections, a long acting steroid like Testosterone enanthate is a very welcome item. Therapy is clearly more comfortable in comparison to an ester like Testosterone propionate, which requires a much more frequent dosage schedule. Testosterone propionate has also been researched as a possible male birth control option Regular injections will efficiently lower sperm production, a state that will be reversible when Testosterone propionate is removed. With the current stigma surrounding steroids however, it is unlikely that such an idea would actually become an adopted practice.
Side effects of Testosterone enanthate
Testosterone is a powerful hormone with notably prominent side effects. Much of which stem from the fact that Testosterone exhibits a high tendency to convert into estrogen. Related side effects of Testosterone enanthate may therefore become a problem during a cycle. For starters, water retention can become quite noticeable side effect of Testosterone enanthate. This can produce a clear loss of muscle definition, as subcutaneous fluids begin to build. Being a Testosterone product, all the standard androgenic side effects are also to be expected. Side effects of Testosterone enanthate are oily skin, acne, aggressiveness, facial/body hair growth and male pattern baldness are all possible. Older or more sensitive individuals might therefore choose to avoid Testosterone products, and look toward milder anabolics like Deca Durabolin® or Equipoise® which produce fewer side effects. Others may opt to add to Testosterone enanthate the drug Proscar®/Propecia®, which will minimize the conversion of Testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). With blood levels of this metabolite notably reduced, the impact of related side effects of Testosterone enanthate should also be reduced. With strong bulking drugs however, the user will generally expect to incur strong side effects and will often just tolerate them. Most athletes really do not find the Testosterones all that uncomfortable (especially in the face of the end result), as can be seen with the great popularity of such compounds.
Dosage of Testosterone enanthate
Although Testosterone enanthate particular ester is active for a much longer duration, most athletes prefer to inject it on a weekly basis in order to keep blood levels more uniform. The usual dosage of Testosterone enanthate would be in the range of 250mg-750mg (200mg- 800mg U.S. strength). This level of Testosterone enanthate is quite sufficient, and should provide the user a rapid gain of strength and body weight. Above Testosterone level estrogenic side effects will no doubt become much more pronounced, outweighing any new muscle that is possibly gained. Those looking for greater bulk would be better served by adding to Testosterone enanthate an oral like Anadrol 50® or Dianabol, combinations which prove to be nothing less than dramatic. If the athlete wishes to use a Testosterone yet retain a level of quality and definition to the physique, an injectable anabolic like Deca Durabolin® or Equipoise® may prove to be a better choice. Here we can use a lower dosage of Testosterone enanthate, so as to gain an acceptable amount of muscle but keep the buildup of estrogen to a minimum. Of course the excess estrogen that is associated with Testosterone makes it a bulking only drug, producing too much water (and fat) retention for use near contest time.
Testosterone enanthate cycle
It is also important to remember that endogenous Testosterone production is likely to be suppressed after a cycle of Testosterone enanthate. When this occurs, one runs the risk of losing muscle mass once the steroid is discontinued. HCG and/or Clomid are in most cases considered to be a necessity, used effectively to restore natural Testosterone production and avoid a post-cycle “crash”.
