What Is It?
Testosterone enanthate is a performance enhancing substance which is the basis for nearly all other performance enhancing drugs in existence today and is estimated to have been used for this purpose as early as the 1940’s, with its clinical use beginning in 1937. Since then, it has become one of the most commonly used drugs in the world for those looking to enhance their physique, strength or athletic prowess.
The chemical structure of the drug is almost identical to that found naturally occurring in the body with the exception of an attached ester, which is basically a chemical delivery agent that controls the rate at which the drug is released in the body. Along with the attached ester, test enanthate is also kept in an oil-based solution for delivery into the body by injection.
As might be expected, this means that the drug has all the effects of the naturally occurring hormone, with some side effects caused by the higher doses available through supplementation. Below, the basics of this drug will be reviewed before looking at how it can be used for boosting aesthetics and athletics in both beginners and advanced trainees.
Testosterone Enanthate 250: Basic Info
Testosterone, as mentioned above, is a hormone that occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for a range of physical and psychological effects such as:
- Increasing strength
- Increasing muscle mass
- Increasing bone density
- Increasing red blood cell count
- Promoting and maintaining sex drive or libido
- Promoting spermatogenesis
- Reducing anxiety
- Increasing aggression and motivation
As you can see, Testosterone plays an important role in many aspects of health and fitness. This is where the idea originally came from to start using it for performance enhancement. Like the naturally occurring hormone, this substance works by binding to androgen and secondary receptors in the cells to lead to increases in protein synthesis and a reduction in protein breakdown. Testosterone Enanthate differs from the naturally occurring form in the body by the addition of an enanthic acid ester, which is basically a chemical compound of a seven-carbon chain and a carboxylic acid (a carbon, oxygen and hydrogen molecule). This gives the drug a half-life of around 10 days, meaning the drug will last at peak levels for roughly five days in the body and will decline to half that by day 10.
For example, this means that when using Testosterone Enanthate 250, you want to ensure that the levels of the drug are at their peak.This will mean you will have to inject another 250mgs of Testosterone Enanthate every five days. It should be noted that at 250mgs, this drug provides a dose that will deliver performance enhancement. Below, we’ll look at this dose and how it used in a “steroid cycle”.
Cycle and Dosage
As stated above, a 250mg dosage of Testosterone Enanthate is a high dose that will deliver benefits for those looking to improve their lean mass, strength or power. However, it is vital to ask why you want to use the drug in the first place. This is the basis for the creation of “steroid cycles” or training cycles, where a drug, or combination of drugs (known as “stacks”) are used alongside a certain training and diet regimen to obtain a fitness goal. As such, there are two common types of training cycles: a bulking cycle, where the goal is to maximize lean mass and strength, or a cutting cycle, where the goal is to maintain strength, power and lean mass as much as possible while dropping weight.
A steroid cycle that either predominantly uses Testosterone Enanthate at 250mgs, or only uses the drug alone, could be called a Test Enanthate 250 Cycle. This type of cycle could be used in either a bulking or cutting-type cycle, but because of some side effects that are present, it would likely be better suited for a bulking cycle. These possible adverse effects will be discussed further below.
Nevertheless, in any cycle, the two most important factors are the dose of the drug used and the total length of time it lasts. A Testosterone Enanthate cycle length for performance enhancement should last a minimum of 8 weeks, but will show benefit as early as 3 weeks in, and can continue for up to 20 weeks. However, increasing the length of time of your cycle increases the risk of adverse effects, and can raise the risk of permanent negative effects to natural production of the hormone and fertility.
So, in a cycle for beginners, a length of 8-12 weeks is a good guideline, before ending the phase with a post-cycle therapy regimen or changing to a different cycle. More advanced athletes may be tempted to extend this length further this would not be recommended. However, if done, it should be done cautiously. This is because, while greater performance enhancement would undoubtedly be the outcome, the risk of permanent negative effects would arise. This is because prolonged use can cause damage to areas of the brain like the hypothalamic-pituitary-axis.
As such, raising the dose instead is likely a better progression for advanced trainees and should be considered first. Dosages are the next consideration for use. Beginners should see performance-enhancing benefits with as little as 100 mg per week. However, gains in strength and muscle are dose-dependant. So higher doses will elicit higher effects. But this raises the risk of adverse effects. Commonly used doses seem to fall within the 200-350 mg range. However, more advanced athletes may require higher doses, and up to 600 mg per week has been shown to be beneficial for performance.
This need for a stronger dose is because higher levels of size and strength will require higher levels of testosterone along with a higher training stimulus. Also, experienced users have been shown to have a higher amount of androgen receptors, meaning a level of adaptation and desensitization may be present from previous use. Naturally, increasing dosages raises the risk of negative effects.
Common Side Effects
While the risk of Testosterone Enanthate side effects is always present, it should be noted that 250mg of Testosterone Enanthate is not considered to be a very high dose in bodybuilding circles, unless the athlete is female. In which case, even a single dose of Test E250 will almost certainly deliver virilizing (development of male traits, such as a deep voice, facial and body hair, and clitoral enlargement) effects. Nevertheless, Negative effects should be discussed before purchase, particularly if considering increasing your dose.
Side effects of Test Enanthate 250 can include:
- Increased estrogen levels and associated negative effects - gynecomastia, fat storage, water retention, raised blood pressure and loss of concentration.
- Negative impact on cholesterol - a reduction in “good” HDL and increase in “bad” LDL cholesterol.
- Increase in size of the left ventricle of the heart.
- Androgen-related effects - increased risk of acne and baldness in those genetically predisposed, as well as virilization in women.
It is also important to note that estrogen-related effects can be eliminated win the use of aromatase-inhibitors, or selective-estrogen-receptor inhibitors. But, this increases the risk of cholesterol-related adverse effects.
