As a result, Trenbolone Acetate now functions as the primary anabolic compound (aka the ‘workhorse’ compound) that will function to provide the muscle growth throughout the cycle. Trenbolone is strictly an advanced level anabolic steroid, unfit for use by beginners of any type. In this cycle, the Acetate variant of Trenbolone is utilized simply due to its seamless compatibility with Testosterone Propionate. This is because the Propionate and Acetate esters as, previously mentioned early on in this section of the profile, both possess almost identical half-lives (3 days for Trenbolone Acetate and days for Testosterone Propionate). This therefore provides an ease of convenience for the user, as well as smoother injection and administration frequencies. The fact that Testosterone is being utilized at a low enough doses to avoid aromatization, combined with the fact that Trenbolone’s inability to convert into Estrogen at any dose should result in the total elimination of any potential water retention, bloating, gynecomastia or any side effects associated with Estrogen . It is important to note that this cycle in particular is strong enough to be utilized as a bulking cycle, lean mass cycle, or cutting cycle – all without the inflated potential for water retention or other Estrogenic side effects .
In androgen-responsive target tissues such as the skin, scalp, and prostate, the high relative androgenicity of testosterone is dependant on its reduction to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The 5-alpha reductase enzyme is responsible for this metabolism of testosterone. The concurrent use of a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor such as finasteride or dutasteride will interfere with site-specific potentiation of testosterone action, lowering the tendency of testosterone drugs to produce androgenic side effects. It is important to remember that both anabolic and androgenic effects are mediated via the cytosolic androgen receptor. Complete separation of testosterone’s anabolic and androgenic properties is not possible, even with total 5-alpha reductase inhibition.
Keep in mind that using enanthate this way will cause a significant build up of testosterone in the bloodstream that will not cease to increase until four or five weeks of injections. This is due to the fact that taking a four hundred milligram injection, and another four days later, still has at least 200mg working from the previous dose. The third injection then adds another four hundred and the first is still not entirely used up. You may realistically have over a gram or so in the bloodstream before you know it. Just be careful, and keep this in mind when figuring out your dosages.
