The usual dosage for physique- or performance-enhancing purposes is in the range of 250-750mg per week, taken in cycles 6 to 12 weeks. This level is sufficient for most users to notice exceptional gains in muscle size and strength.
In a performance enhancement setting, common Testosterone Enanthate doses will fall in the 250-500mg per week range. 250mg per week is very common if the hormone is only being used to combat natural testosterone suppression caused by the use of other anabolic steroids. For a true anabolic effect, most men will find 500mg per week to be highly effective and very easy to control. If more is desired, many men will find 750-1,000mg per week can be tolerated and controlled but doses that approach the 1,000mg mark will greatly increase the probability of adverse effects. How much testosterone a man can tolerate and control will vary from one man to the next. However, most men will find doses above 1,000mg per week all but guarantee side effects at some level.
Testosterone Enanthate becomes fully available to your body within 3 or even 4 weeks. In cases of low dosage, the drug may not take effect at all, hence there are many users who complain about not feeling their desired effects when on a low dose. The reasoning for this can be due to poor diet, training or lifestyle. One way to overcome this possibility is by front loading the compound. That is, to use a higher dose in the first two weeks, then in the future, reduced the dosage to to the normal amount.
Example of a front loading cycle;
Week 1: Enanthate 1000mg (two injections of 500mg each)
Week 2: Enanthate 750mg (with two injections of 500mg and 250 mg)
Weeks 3-12: Enanthate 500mg (two 250mg injections)
Testosterone is readily aromatized in the body to estradiol (estrogen). The aromatase (estrogen synthetase) enzyme is responsible for this metabolism of testosterone.
Elevated estrogen levels can cause side effects such as increased water retention, body fat gain, and gynecomastia. Elevated levels of testosterone are likely to produce androgenic side effects including oily skin, acne, and body/facial hair growth. To counter this it is recommended to run an anti estrogen such as Aromasin, Arimidex or Proviron.
Men with a genetic predisposition for hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) may notice accelerated male pattern balding. Anabolic/androgenic steroids can have deleterious effects on serum cholesterol. This includes a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol values and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol values, which may shift the HDL to LDL balance in a direction that favors greater risk of arteriosclerosis.
