Understanding The Enanthate Ester and Doses

The most common Enantahte estered anabolic is Testosterone Enanthate, which is normally introduced into beginner steroid cycles for the purpose of bulking, but can also be used as a type of testosterone support when cutting or using androgens that cause testosterone inhibition.

Testostrone Enanthate has the Enanthate ester attached, which slows the amount of active parent hormone (testosterone) entering the blood stream after injection. Other Enanthate affixed anabolic steroids, such as Trenbolone Enanthate or Primobolan Enanthate, are normally anabolic steroids that are utilized in later cycles once a user is more experienced in the use of cycling anabolic steroids (especially for a compound such as Trenbolone). However, it is very important to understand that the Enanthate dosages are not determined by the Enanthate ester, but by the anabolic steroid it is affixed to. For example, typical Testosterone Enanthate doses are often very different from Trenbolone Enanthate, which is also different from Methenolone Enanthate (Primobolan Depot) or Drostanolone Enanthate (Masteron). What Enanthate dosages an individual will choose to utilize ultimately lies upon the characteristics and properties of that Enanthate esterified compound. Furthermore, Enanthate doses can differ depending on whether the individual is a beginner, intermediate, or advanced user. Enanthate dosages further change depending on what the individual’s goal(s) are, as often times the dosage required for the purpose of fat loss, cutting, and/or the preservation of muscle mass during a caloric deficit is not as high as it is for gaining muscle mass, strength, or bulking, for example.

The Enanthate doses for a beginner in terms of Testosterone Enanthate, for example, is within the range of 300 – 500mg per week. A beginner Trenbolone Enanthate dose lands in the range of 200 – 400mg per week by comparison, as Trenbolone is a much more powerful anabolic steroid than Testosterone. Further comparison with Methenolone (Primobolan) Enanthate dosages are as high as 500 – 800mg per week due to the lack of anabolic strength of Primobolan. Intermediate Testosterone Enanthate doses are usually upwards of 500 – 750mg per week, but do not always rise higher (especially when stacked with other compounds). Advanced Testosterone Enanthate dosages can be anywhere from 500 – 1,000mg per week. However, just because Enanthate doses can rise that high (or higher), does not mean that just because someone is an experienced advanced anabolic steroid user that they should necessarily run Enanthate doses that are that high. Once again, many factors come into play when Enanthate dosages are to be determined (the anabolic steroid, the individual’s goals, and so on and so forth).

Because Enanthate affixed anabolic steroids have a half-life of 7 – 10 days, Enanthate doses are administered on average twice per week with the dosage split evenly apart between the two. For example, an individual using Trenbolone Enanthate at a dosage of 400mg per week would administer 200mg on Monday, followed by another 200mg on Thursday. This results in much more stable and steady blood levels of the hormone, and reduces the incidence of steroids side effects. Although it is possible to administer Enanthate dosages once per week, it is not the best method of administration due to rising and falling blood levels that might exacerbate side effects or even reduce the quality of gains. Twice per week injections of Enanthate dosages are therefore the recommended standard within the anabolic steroid using community.

Enanthate Uses During Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

 The two most common testosterone replacement therapy injectbale anabolic steroids are Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Cypionate. These two estered compounds have an extremely similar half-life post injection of around 10-14 days. This means both should be injected twice or at least every 10-14 days.

However, more recent research suggests that using a long acting ester (Enanthate) but injecting every day or every other day in small subcutaneous amounts of 10-20mg per day is superior and keeps blood plasma levels stable. Endrocrinologists in the Unites States have been employing this method. Date states that a stable level of testosterone can be achieved and estrogenic conversion is kept to a minimum when compared to larger less frequent administration.
