Testosterone is a very versatile and flexible anabolic steroid in terms of its uses and Testosterone Enanthate cycles can be utilized for virtually anything. It is perhaps the most versatile anabolic steroid, and, as previously mentioned it is the only anabolic steroid that holds the capability of being safely and effectively run solitarily on its own. This is a feature that very few other anabolic steroids possess. Although Testosterone is strong enough to support any cycle goals on its own, it is frequently stacked with other various anabolic steroids in Testosterone Enanthate cycles. Testosterone’s versatility extends to its use with other compounds, as Testosterone is compatible with literally every single type of anabolic steroid. Such a statement goes without saying especially when one considers the fact that Testosterone is an absolute necessity in any cycle with any compound regardless. The only limitation on Testosterone Enanthate would be that of its release rate and half-life, but even so, this ‘limitation’ is really only a minor inconvenience when one looks in greater detail at this particular case. Testosterone Enanthate exhibits a longer half-life of 10 days, which may not be as convenient to stack with other anabolic steroids that may possess shorter a shorter half-life and a faster release rate (such as Trenbolone Acetate, for example). In any case, this is only a minor inconvenience rather than a limitation, as Testosterone Enanthate can indeed be utilized with faster acting anabolic steroids, but any individual who wishes to stack the two should be aware of the different half-lives which necessitate a different administration and injection schedule for each.
Testosterone Enanthate can be utilized for cutting cycles, lean mass cycles, and bulking cycles all equally as successful. When bulking is concerned, Testosterone Enanthate combines with two other very popular anabolic steroids to create the most widely used and popular anabolic steroid cycle stack ever known. This is the Testosterone Enanthate / Dianabol / Nandrolone stack. Originally designed and popularized by the bodybuilders of the golden era of the 1960s and 1970s, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many of his bodybuilding cohorts were all said to have made this stack a staple in bulking and strength gaining phases. It is also the most popular stack among all three tiers of anabolic steroid users today (beginner, intermediate, and advanced). This is a stack that caters to the goal of bulking and strength gaining almost exclusively, and this is why it is such an attractive and widely used stack among all types of anabolic steroid users.
Testosterone Enanthate cycles with the goal of cutting in mind are also indeed possible, although the use of an aromatase inhibitor is indeed required in order to control the water retention and bloating that is responsible for providing the soft and puffy look that is very undesirable when a hard and lean looking physique is desired. When fat loss and cutting cycles are the goal, Testosterone Enanthate does not need to be run at high doses and lower doses are often enough, considering the use of anabolic steroids in a cutting cycle is utilized simply for the purpose of lean mass preservation during a state of caloric restriction and deficit rather than the addition of muscle mass.
Testosterone Enanthate being a slower releasing anabolic steroid with a longer half-life of 10 days necessitates the need for longer Testosterone Enanthate cycles in the range of 10 – 12 weeks. Due to the longer time required for optimal peak blood plasma levels to be achieved. Therefore, the kick-in period occurs at a later date (approximately 4-6 weeks into the cycle) than the short estered fast releasing anabolic steroids (2 – 4 weeks into a cycle).
Beginner Testosterone Enanthate Cycle
Beginner Testosterone Enan Cycle Example (12 weeks total cycle time)
Weeks 1 – 12:
– Testosterone Enanthate at 300 – 500mg/week
This is the most basic of any anabolic steroid cycle, and is also the most basic of Testosterone Enanthate cycles for beginners. It is the perfect introduction to anabolic steroids in general for any newcomer to the world of anabolic steroid use. Every first-time beginner anabolic steroid cycle should always be a Testosterone-only cycle of some form of Testosterone. The reason for such a stipulation of anabolic steroid use is that Testosterone is the safest anabolic steroid, as it is what the human body manufactures endogenously and what it is accustomed to, as every human body manufactures this hormone endogenously. This grants the beginner the opportunity to measure and gauge their individual responses to the most natural and basic anabolic steroid: Testosterone. Testosterone is, for the most part, what every other anabolic steroid is a derivative of and it makes logical sense to gauge responses with Testosterone first on its own before moving on to other compounds, as there is a high possibility that if an individual responds in a very negative manner to a simple Testosterone-only cycle, then that same individual may respond worse to other compounds. Testosterone Enanthate is the Testosterone product of choice in this particular case, and this Testosterone Enanthate cycle would be best suited as a bulking or lean mass gaining cycle.
Intermediate Testosterone Enanthate Cycle
Intermediate Testosterone Enan Cycle Example (12 weeks total cycle time)
Weeks 1 – 12:
– Testosterone Enanthate at 500mg/week
– Nandrolone Decanoate (AKA Deca Durabolin) at 400mg/week
Weeks 1 – 4:
– Dianabol at 25mg/day
This is an intermediate Testosterone Enanthate cycle that follows the very popular Testosterone/Deca Durabolin/Dianabol cycle stack briefly mentioned above. It is best suited as an intermediate level Testosterone Enanthate cycle, and contrary to popular belief this is not a cycle suited for beginners. The idea behind beginner first-time cycles using Testosterone-only have been explained above, but the additional use of other compounds in a cycle can be a hazard for a beginner who may react negatively and will be unsure as to which compound is the culprit. Such a situation could prove lethal in the case of allergic reactions as well. This is why beginners should always start off with the basics before stacking compounds. This intermediate stack is once again preferred for the purpose of bulking and strength gaining.
Advanced Testosterone Enanthate Cycle
Advanced Testosterone Enanthate Cycle Example (12 weeks total cycle time)
Weeks 1 – 12:
– Testosterone Enanthate at 100mg/week
– Trenbolone Enanthate at 600mg/week
Advanced cycles, such as this one, are used as examples to demonstrate the use of Testosterone Enanthate as a supportive compound with TRT doses only for the purpose of maintenance of normal physiological function in the absence of normal functioning endogenous Testosterone production. Testosterone Enanthate, as a result, has been lowered to the TRT dose of 100mg weekly. This low dose of Testosterone should provide control over Estrogen levels throughout the cycle without the requirement of an aromatase inhibitor. Trenbolone Enanthate, as a result, is now operating as the primary workhorse anabolic compound that will work to provide the muscle growth throughout the cycle. Trenbolone is an advanced level anabolic steroid only, and should not be touched by beginners. In this cycle, the Enanthate variant of Trenbolone is utilized simply due to its seamless compatibility with the similarly estered Testosterone. Both are esterified with the Enanthate ester, which provides the user running this cycle with an ease of convenience and smoother injection and administration schedules. Testosterone at a low enough dose to avoid aromatization combined with the fact that Tren does not convert into Estrogen should completely eliminate any possibility of water retention, bloating, gynecomastia or any Estrogen related side effects. As such, this cycle is strong enough to be utilized as a bulking cycle, lean mass cycle, or cutting cycle.
