Testosterone Enanthate is probably the most commonly used form of testosterone among athletes and bodybuilders.
Aside from this, it is one of the most often prescribed testosterone compounds for treating low testosterone levels or andropause, and Cypionate is the most commonly prescribed injectable form.
To understand how Testosterone Enanthate (also called test-e) strengthens muscles and burns fat, we must first go over androgenics and what they do in the body. Hormones are substances secreted from cells that impact the functions of another cell.
Testosterone is made in the Leydig cells in the testicles (in males) and an adult man produces 2.5-11mg per day.
This is natural testosterone production.
Effects of Testosterone Enanthate
Testosterone acts on the muscles and induces changes in shape, size, appearance and the number of muscle fibers.
Androgens like testosterone can protect your hard-earned muscles from catabolism (natural muscular atrophy) caused by glucocorticoid hormones by inhibiting their capacity to send a message to muscle cells to release stored proteins.
Remember, testosterone sends a message to the muscle cells to store more contractile proteins (also called actin and myosin) while glucocorticoid hormones send the opposite message.
Testosterone Enanthate can also increase erythropoiesis (production of red blood cells) in the kidneys.
More red blood cells help you improved your endurance through better blood oxygenation.
Red blood cells can also help you better recover after intense physical activity. Of course, individual aggression may also increase dramatically while using exogenous testosterone, but it is important to remember that aggression in itself is not a bad thing, it’s what you do with it that makes it good or bad.
This can become a powerful stimulant for your weight training. In any case, Testosterone Enanthate is absolutely not a psychotropic product.
All these advantages are achievable using Testosterone Enanthate alone, but in most cases Enanthate is part of a cycle with one or more other anabolic steroids.
As you can imagine, Testosterone Enanthate’s anabolic and androgenic effects depend on the dose administrated.
The higher the dose, the quicker the muscle growth. So you can hope for substantial results following administration of Testosterone Enanthate.
