Testosterone Enanthate is a complex ester of natural testosterone. In bodybuilding, it 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 the drug – 2-3 weeks (half-life 6-7 days). In bodybuilding, triathlon and weightlifting injections are performed once or twice a week to maintain a consistently high and as stable concentration as possible.
In the us market, Testosterone Enanthate cycle is widely represented. Popular in the 90’s Polish Testosteronum Prolongatum is now virtually absent.

How to Properly Cycle Testosterone Enanthate and PCT?
The anabolic effect of Testosterone Enanthate is directly proportional to the dosage used. The recommended dose is 250-500 mg per week, with an increase in the body weight of the athlete dosage is most often revised upwards. Injections are performed 1-2 times a week, preferably in the gluteal region. Usually Testosterone Enanthate cycle lasts 8-10 weeks, and after 2-3 weeks Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) is performed. Very often, Testosterone Enanthate is used for longer periods of time. To achieve the best results, it is necessary to follow an appropriate diet (relief or muscle mass) with the use of sports nutrition.
Maximum effective dose. According to Bill Roberts, the maximum dose of Testosterone Enanthate is 2-4 grams per week in professional athletes, and further increase in dosage is meaningless.
In order to avoid the development of estrogen side effects, it is desirable to use aromatase inhibitors or Proviron, starting from 2-3 weeks, as described in the relevant articles. Ends taking aromatase inhibitors a week after the end of the cycle. Optimal analysis of estradiol levels prior to the use of aromatase inhibitors and during their use to control the effectiveness.
Also, as a PCT should be used immediately after the cycle of cortisol blockers to preserve the accumulated mass.
