Testosterone enanthate is an ester of natural testosterone. In bodybuilding, this is one of the most popular steroids for gaining muscle mass.

Testosterone enanthate is a long acting steroid. Depending on the metabolism and hormonal background, the average period of action of the drug is 2-3 weeks (half-life is 6-7 days). In bodybuilding, triathlon and weightlifting, injections are performed once or twice a week to maintain a constantly high and as stable concentration as possible.

 

Effects and action

 

One of the main benefits of testosterone enanthate is a pronounced increase in both muscle mass and strength (which is why it is highly valued by weightlifters and powerlifters), as well as pumping. Along with the anabolic effect, the drug has a pronounced androgenic effect. Rapid weight gain is associated with a significant accumulation of water, due to sodium retention and estrogenic action. At the end of the course, there is a noticeable phenomenon of rollback.

 

Also, testosterone enanthate stimulates regeneration processes in the body. Increases overall tone, prevents overtraining. Increases the oxygen capacity of the blood.

A big problem when using testosterone enanthate in bodybuilding is its strong ability to aromatize, i.e. conversion to estrogen. As a result, gynecomastia and edema often develop.

Therefore, the use of antiestrogens is more appropriate and even necessary after the course, primarily to normalize the production of endogenous testosterone.

 

It is also worth highlighting the following side effects when taking testosterone enanthate:

-acne,
– increased blood pressure,
-aggression,
-hair loss
and some others.

Testosterone enanthate course

 

The anabolic effect of testosterone enanthate is directly proportional to the dosage used. You can see this relationship in the graph on the right. The recommended dose is 250-500 mg per week, while with an increase in the athlete’s body weight, the dosage is most often revised upwards. Injections are performed 1-2 times a week, preferably in the gluteal region. Typically, the course of testosterone enanthate lasts 8-10 weeks, and after 2-3 weeks, post-cycle therapy is carried out. Very often, testosterone enanthate is used for longer periods of time. To achieve the best results, you must follow an appropriate diet (relief or muscle gain) with the use of sports nutrition.
