Information about the drug
In bodybuilding, Testosterone Depo (Testosterone Enanthate) is a muscle building steroid. And it is completely indifferent what you think about Dianabol, Anadrol 50, etc., when it comes to the strength of muscle mass and rapid weight gain: testosterone was and remains here No. 1
TE is a long-acting steroid that provides long-term effects on the body. Depending on the metabolism and the state of the hormonal system, the duration of the action of the drug is 2-3 weeks, so theoretically very long intervals between injections are possible. Although TE lasts more than a few weeks, it is used in bodybuilding, powerlifting, and weightlifting most often at least once a week. This makes sense since TE only has a half-life in the blood of a week.
The decisive advantage of TE is, nevertheless, that its active chemical substance with a very strong androgenic effect also has an intense anabolic effect. Therefore, it is easy for everyone with its help in the shortest possible time to greatly increase in strength and mass.
Rapid and large weight gain is associated with significant water retention. A delightful accompanying effect is an incredible increase in strength that keeps pace with this water retention in the body. Weightlifters and powerlifters, especially in heavy weight classes, appreciate this quality of the drug. For them, Testosterone Enanthate and Sustanon are their favorite steroids, which is reflected in the dosages: Doses of 500 mg, 100 mg and even 2000 (!) Mg per day are not uncommon (note – per day, not per week !) Kinds of sports where brute strength, aggressiveness, zeal are required – the primary area of application of Testosterone Enanthate.
Testosterone Depo Effects
For bodybuilders, the water retention caused by taking Testosterone Enanthate is a double-edged sword. Of course, you can quickly become massive and strong. But after a couple of weeks the mirror shows completely flat, smooth and watery, edematous muscles. It is looks like as if they are inflated with air to these sizes and no matter how much you strain it, nothing will happen. For those who don’t believe, let them try to see bodybuilding champions in the offseason or before muscle building. In this period they absorb incredible amounts of testosterone.
Another problem with the use of TE is that it has a strong degree of aromatization, i.e. turns into estrogen. As a result, the body accumulates a lot of fat and gynecomastia is common. But here everything is strictly individual, because for the most part, these phenomena are in a certain dependence on the predisposition to them.
There are athletes who, even with a dose of 1000 mg or more per day, do not suffer from feminization phenomena. Fat accumulation retains only a small amount of water, if at all, while others, already at the sight of one ampoule of testosterone-Depot, complain of pain in the nipples. Therefore, you should pay attention to the additional intake of Nolvadex and Proviron.
Other Testosterone Depo effects on the body
It’s good that Testosterones, as mentioned above, work on anyone, be it a beginner or Mr. Olympia. TE also very strongly stimulates recovery processes in the body. Therefore, it works well in terms of increasing vitality, obtaining additional energy and accelerating the phases of compensation. This is the reason that some athletes can train 6 times a week twice a day and at the same time manage to become more massive and stronger.
Athletes who take Testosterone Enanthate report a surprisingly powerful pumping effect during exercise. This “steroid pump” is due to an increase in blood volume with an improved supply of oxygen to the body and a large number of red blood cells in the blood.
Those who take mega doses of TE experience a strong “pump” in the thighs and calves, even when walking up the stairs.
Taking Testosterone Enanthate helps those who have joint problems, those who complain of pain and crunching in the shoulders and those who have the first signs of wear in the spinal discs.
How to Use Testosterone Depo correctly?
Despite all these advantages, beginners in steroid courses should stay away from all types of Testosterone. Those who have never taken steroids do not need any Testosterone. Let them put it aside and take it only when lighter steroids will no longer act on them. For advanced athletes, Testosterone Enanthate can already be advised, and either only it or in combination with other drugs.
The common TE dose, as mentioned, varies greatly and ranges from 250 mg per week to 2000 mg per day.
It is prudent for most athletes not to go beyond 250-1000 mg per week.In principle, higher doses are not required
Dosage and combinations
To build up the mass, TE is well combined with Anadrol 50, Dianabol, Deca-Durabolin and Parabolan. As an example, a combination of 100 mg Anadrol 50 per day, 200 mg Deca-Durabolin per week and 500 mg TEQ per week. After 6 weeks, you can replace Anadrol 50 with 30 mg of Dianabol per day. In principle, TE works well for building mass with any steroid. Apparently, a synergistic effect arises between the androgen – Testosterone Enanthate – and other anabolic steroids. Athletes who, when taking Testosterone Enanthate, Dianabol or Anadrol 50, retain too much water or are more interested in strength without gaining more than 10 kg in weight, should take TE together with Oxandrolone or Winstrol.
The intake of 500 mg per week is usually carried out at a time, i.e. inject 2 ml at once. The higher dose is best divided into 2 injections per week. The dosage should first of all be focused on the level of the athlete’s training, his goals and the number of previous steroid intake. For many, it is focused primarily on the wallet. And since it is not the cheapest testosterone, most fortunately take little or use the cheaper Omnadren.
TE has a strong effect on the hypothalamus-pituitary-testicular arc. The activity of the pituitary gland, due to the triggering of the negative feedback mechanism, decreases. This is negatively affects the production of its own testosterone. Therefore, those taking TE should take HCT every 6-8 weeks.
An injection of 5000 IU every fifth day for 15 days (3 injections in total) will help reduce this problem.
