Testosterone, as the natural product drug and one of the most widely used AAS, is the most convenient choice for a reference drug to which all others will be compared. Particular properties of testosterone that are of note include that it converts enzymatically both to DHT and to estradiol (estrogen). While with normal levels of testosterone these conversions are in fact desirable, with supraphysiological levels caused by drug adminstration they can be undesirable. DHT is at least three times more potent (effective per milligram) than testosterone at the androgen receptor (AR): therefore, in those tissues which convert Testosterone Enanthate testosterone to DHT, there is effectively three times as much androgen as elsewhere in the body. Thus, whatever level of androgen is experienced by the muscle tissue is multiplied threefold or more in the skin and in the prostate. This can be excessive. Proscar could be used to keep DHT levels more or less normalized despite heavy testosterone use, however. Excess conversion to estrogen is also undesirable since it contributes to inhibition of the hypothalamic/pituitary/testicular axis (HPTA), can cause or aggravate gynecomastia, can cause bloating, and can give unfavorable fat pattern distribution. This conversion can be somewhat reduced by use of aromatase inhibitors such as Cytadren, and/or the effects of the estradiol produced may be blocked in many tissues, including the hypothalamus and breast tissue, by Clomid.
Testosterone Enanthate: steroid course
Anabolic effects of the drug on the body directly depends on what dosage the athlete uses. The athlete selects the dosage independently, based on the experience of taking, the goals of the course, the hormonal background and other individual characteristics of your body. The recommended weekly dosage ranges from 250 to 500 mg. The dosage should be proportional to the body weight (correspondingly less weight, less dosage, weight more – dosage is also greater). Injections are performed at a frequency of one to two times a week, the localization is the buttock area. The course duration is usually 8-10 weeks, after 2-3 weeks it is recommended to conduct PCT. Often athletes conduct courses that are longer than specified. This course often shows side effects associated with converting the drug to estrogens. In order to neutralize it, it is recommended to start using Proviron or aromatase inhibitors 2-3 weeks later and to complete their reception one week after the end of the course. Before taking the inhibitors, as well as during and after the discontinuation, it is better to conduct an assay for the concentration of estradiol. Gonadotropin is recommended to be used if the taken dose of the drug is more than 250 mg, and the duration of the cycle. Use gonadotropin if the dosage exceeds 250 mg and the cycle time is more than 8 weeks. Among other things, as a post-course therapy should use cortisol blockers, so that the collected kilograms did not go away after the course. Also, one should not forget about nutrition: it must be balanced, high-calorie and regular. Combined courses with Testosterone Enanthate are common. It is a good combination drug, so athletes can pick up a bunch that would suit them.
