Enanthate 8-10.5 days
Testosterone Enanthate also known as Test E / Testen / Testoviron is suspended in sesame oil and has a 7-carbon ester chain. Testosterone Enanthate is also readily available throughout the world. And based on this ester chain you should be able to see a slightly higher dose from Enanthate compared to Cypionate on an mg to mg basis and due to it being 1 atom lighter Enanthate slightly higher mg to mg ratio than Cypionate. As like Testosterone Cypionate one would only have to administer weekly dosages to maintain stable blood hormone levels.
It is a drug that is abused by doping consumers as a pure bulk anabolic-androgenic steroid. Its construction effects allegedly exceed the so-called. hardsteroids (oxymetholone, trenbolone, methandienone), which are considered to be unique in abuse aimed at increasing brutal mass. It has a strong androgenic action with intense anabolic activity, which induces high water retention, muscle mass growth and excellent growth potential strength, especially appreciated amongst power doping consumers. Excellent regenerative abilities that achieve high parameters are also reported. Anyone taking testosterone enanthate can, after two to three hours of intense leg training, continue to have back training without difficulty. High pump states are also mentioned.
However, above-average testosterone enanthate results must be paid in the form of unusually rich negative properties. The product easily aromatizes, so that at the time of abuse are very common so-called. feminization manifestations (fat cover on the hips, gynecomastia), sharply decreases endogenous testosterone production, a rise in blood pressure, acne on the back, chest and shoulders, which often occurs after withdrawal of the product. Of course there is reduced spermatogenesis and in places even uncontrollable aggressiveness. Interestingly, its negative effect on the liver compared to orally administered steroids is disproportionately lower.
Although it is a long-acting depot agent with an effect of 2-3 weeks, doping consumers prefer significantly shorter intervals between application. Combinations with almost all existing anabolic-androgenic steroids are common, and the “right” receptors are reported to always be covered to guarantee the effect desired by the doping consumer. Weekly doses are in the range of 250-1000 mg, with a single daily dose not exceeding 500 mg.
What role does Testosterone play? Sperm production, increases libido (sex drive) in both men and women, the development of the penis / testes, secondary male sexual characteristics such as facial and bodily hair and deepening of the voice, however it’s most important role for bodybuilders is its muscle building attributes in which androgens promote protein synthesis.
Low levels of testosterone can cause a number of nasty effects on our bodies, like heart disease, erectile dysfunction (ED), decreased energy levels, depression/anxiety, anemia, infertility, polyuria, dry skin, poor sleep, increased abdominal fat, high cholesterol and gynecomastia to name a few. As you can see testosterone is a very powerful hormone that has many different attributes associated to it. Testosterone is produced in the testes of males and in females it is produced in the ovaries; males have naturally around 10 times the amount of testosterone than females. If you do suspect you suffer from low testosterone levels then it would be advised to seek medical assistance and possibly be put on TRT (Testosterone replacement therapy).
There are a few things that affect our body’s natural testosterone levels, such as aging, psychological changes. Foods such as meat, fats and supplements like zinc play a role in promoting testosterone whereas other foods actually lower the production of testosterone. Sleep (REM) also plays a very effective role in the production of testosterone.
Now let’s talk about the anabolic steroid testosterone. Testosterone as I have pointed out above is a natural occurring hormone in the body and all other anabolic steroids are synthetic versions of testosterone. So in saying that you will see why it is important to have testosterone as your ground work for every steroid cycle or stack. Many people speculate that it might be better to put steroid novices on other milder and less androgenic compounds like Primobolan or Anavar. This is not a good idea as all anabolic/androgenic steroids affect our hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPTA) and in saying that, luteinizing hormone (LH) is the hormone which stimulates the testes interstitial cells to produce testosterone. And while on a steroid cycle, the effects on your HPTA axis as mentioned above will prevent your body from creating it’s own testosterone production until you finish your cycle and your androgen levels are low enough for an affective PCT to be carried out. So if you do not add testosterone as your basis to every cycle you will lower your natural supply of testosterone and you could start to develop the above mentioned side effects associated to low testosterone levels.
The anabolic steroid testosterone has an anabolic to endergonic ratio of 100/100. As you can see by this ratio it is a very powerful steroid in the production of muscle and strength. However due to the high androgenic properties of testosterone many unwanted side effects associated to steroids can be expected when using testosterone. Testosterone also acts as a very powerful anti-catabolic steroid in which it protect your from the catabolic hormone glucocorticoid and help sustain muscle mass by not shifting into a catabolic state.
