What Is Trenbolone Enanthate?
As previously mentioned, Trenbolone Enanthate is a long ester variant of the hormone Trenbolone. 19-nor compounds are characterized by their lack of a 19th carbon on the steroid structure, which also brings Trenbolone the classification of a progestin as well. Through it’s modifications from Nandrolone, it introduces two double-bonds between carbons 11 and 9, and it is this chemical modification that effectively makes Trenbolone totally immune to aromatization (conversion into Estrogen) by way of the aromatase enzyme as well as increasing the strength at which Trenbolone binds to the androgen receptor. That is to say that Trenbolone will not produce any estrogenic side effects alone, and that it is an extremely potent and very strong anabolic steroid with an anabolic:androgenic ratio of 500:500. Compared to Testosterone, this is staggering, as Testosterone expresses an anabolic:androgenic ratio of 100:100. Hence, we can see how and why Trenbolone is five times the strength of Testosterone. Its chemical modifications also allow it a stronger resistance to metabolism in the body, allowing even more maximization of its anabolic capabilities in muscle tissue. Lastly, Trenbolone Enanthate possesses the enanthate ester, affixed at the 17-beta hydroxyl group on the steroid structure. This, as mentioned many times already, slows the release rate and also extends Trenbolone’s half-life in the body to approximately 7 – 10 days.
As a result of its chemical modifications, there is little question as to why Trenbolone Enanthate is so popular and effective among bodybuilders and athletes. Because of its unique characteristics, Trenbolone Enanthate is quite versatile in terms of its capabilities of use. It can literally be utilized for any goal: bulking, lean mass gaining, cutting (fat loss), strength gaining, and other goals perhaps more specific to different sports. Trenbolone Enanthate is commonly utilized in longer cycles due to its longer half-life and slower activity in the body. Because of the long Enanthate ester, users will typical inject Trenbolone Enanthate approximately twice per week, with each administration spaced evenly apart. For example, an injection on Sunday and an injection on Wednesday would suffice. If an individual is utilizing 400mg/week of Trenbolone Enanthate, 200mg would be injected on Sunday and the following 200mg would be injected on Wednesday.
