Testosterone Enanthate injection
Use of testosterone enanthate has been shown to significantly increase strength within 6-12 weeks of administration (2, 9), however, it is unclear if the ergogenic benefits are evident in less than 6 weeks. Testosterone enanthate is classified as a prohibited substance by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and its use may be detected by way of the urinary testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratio (16). The two objectives of this study were to establish (a) if injection of 3.5 mg.kg(-1) testosterone enanthate once per week could increase muscular strength and cycle sprint performance in 3-6 weeks; and (b) if the WADA-imposed urinary T/E ratio of 4:1 could identify all subjects being administered 3.5 mg.kg(-1) testosterone enanthate. Sixteen healthy young men were match-paired and were assigned randomly in a double-blind manner to either a testosterone enanthate or a placebo group. All subjects performed a structured heavy resistance training program while receiving either testosterone enanthate (3.5 mg.kg(-1)) or saline injections once weekly for 6 weeks. One repetition maximum (1RM) strength measures and 10-second cycle sprint performance were monitored at the pre (week 0), mid (week 3), and post (week 6) time points. Body mass and the urinary T/E ratio were measured at the pre (week 0) and post (week 6) time points. When compared with baseline (pre), 1RM bench press strength and total work during the cycle sprint increased significantly at week 3 (p < 0.01) and week 6 (p < 0.01) in the testosterone enanthate group, but not in the placebo group. Body mass at week 6 was significantly greater than at baseline in the testosterone enanthate group (p < 0.01), but not in the placebo group. Despite the clear ergogenic effects of testosterone enanthate in as little as 3 weeks, 4 of the 9 subjects in the testosterone enanthate group ( approximately 44%) did not test positive to testosterone under current WADA urinary T/E ratio criteria. Enantat 250 (Testosterone Enanthate) is another one of the most popular and most used testosterone available. Enantat 250 is an oil-based form of testosterone with strong androgenic and anabolic effects. It aromatizes quite easily which means that the conversion rate to estrogen, similar to cypionate’s, is relatively high. Many athletes report that Testosterone Enanthate stores less water in the body than cypionate does. Doses are similar to that of Cypionate and Sustanon. Most users report solid gains using between 250mgs and 1000mgs of Enantat 250 per week. The distinct water retention has also other advantages. Those who have problems with their joints, shoulder cartilages or whose vertebral disks, due to years of heavy training, show signs of wear, can get temporary relief by taking testosterone. Testosterone enanthateвЂ™s conversion rate to estrogen is very high. This, on one hand, leads the body to store more fat; on the other hand, feminisation symptoms (gynecomastia) are not unusual. However, it must be clearly stated that this depends on the athlete’s predisposition. By all means, there are athletes who even with 1000 mgs or more per week do not show feminisation symptoms or fat deposits and who suffer very low water retention. Others, however, develop pain in their nipples using small doses. Suggested Stacking Protocol: Mass: Mass building with all Testosterones is very effective. A simple stack of Enantat 250. Nandrolone Deconate and Anadrol yields quality mass. Nolvadex should be used to combat the water retention. Cutting: Testosterone enanthate. much like Testosterone Cypionate, is not really effective as a cutting steroid as the water retention is quite severe. Combing Enantat 250 with Arimidex and Nolvadex may help control the water retention and side effects. Sustanon or Testosterone Propionate are far better choices for Contest Prep.
