Top 9 of testosterone esters

Now that you know a little about testosterone and its effects in general, we will go into detail with the different esters of testosterones available in the market.

In fact, there are several esters that allow each one to aim at a personal goal. With this choice of esters, you can compose your cycle with the greatest precision. An ester will affect the duration of the action of the product.

The ester allows to maintain the active principle in a shorter term or longer.

 

Testosterone Propionate

TestosteronePropionate
Average dose50 to 100 mg/day
Half-life1 to 2 days
Water retentionminimal
Aromatizationyes
Actionfast
Positive effects- better vascularization
- increased energy
- hard, dense mass and strength gains
Probable side effects- gynecomastia
- hair loss
- acne
- testicular atrophy
ProtectionNolvadex + Proviron
Take 1 tab of each per day throughout the treatment
RecoveryClomiGen + NolvaGen
Prendre 1 tab de chaque par jour pendant 20 jours après le dernier jour de cycle.

Testosterone propionate has a very short duration of action: 1 or 2 days only.
It will bring great gains of mass and strength, but with the advantage of a minimum water retention, which will guarantee a denser and better-quality musculature.

Due to its fast action, this ester allows a significant increase of energy in the workout as well as a better vascularisation already from the first days of the cycle.

It is not uncommon for users starting a cycle with testosterone propionate and continue with testosterone enanthate, which is an ester with a more lasting effect.

 

Testosterone Enanthate et la Testosterone Cypionate

Testosterone Enanthateand Testosterone Cypionate
Average dose250 to 750mg per week
Half-life2 to 3 weeks
Water retentionYes
AromatizationYes
ActionDelayed effects
Positive effects- better vascularization
- increased energy
- rapid bulking and strength gains
Probable side effects- gynecomastia
- significant water retention
- hair loss
- acne
- testicular atrophy
ProtectionNolvadex + Proviron
Take 1 tab of each per day throughout the treatment
RecoveryClomid
Take 1 tab per day for 20 days after the final day of your cycle.

Testosterone enanthate is one of the most commonly used forms of delayed-release testosterone.

The duration of its activity in the body is 2 to 3 weeks. Therefore, an injection of 250mg a week is sufficient to maintain a high level of testosterone in the body.

It produces a very fast gain of strength and weight, with a high level of water retention and gynecomastia, however. Your protections and your recovery will be fundamental.

The effects and properties of testosterone cypionate are identical in all respects to those of enanthate. The action of testosterone cypionate will be a bit longer than that of the enanthate ester.

The effect of the enanthate is slightly shorter, but it contains more testosterone per one gram of weight.

 

Testosterone Heptylate

TestosteroneHeptylate
Average dose250 to 750mg per week
Half-life2 weeks
Water retentionModerate
AromatizationYes
ActionFast
Positive effects- better vascularization

Probable side effects- gynecomastia

ProtectionNolvadex + Proviron

RecoveryClomid
Take 1 tab per day for 20 days after the last day of your cycle.
HCG
Take between 2500 and 5000 IU per week for 20 days after the last day of your cycle.

Testosterone heptilate provides fast and important gains as with enanthate or cypionate.

However, this ester is not widely used, since it is less recognised than the enanthate and the cypionate.

 

Odecanoate of testosterone in oral tablets

TestosteroneUndecanoate (oral)
Average dose6 to 16 capsules per day (240 to 640mg/day)
Half-lifeA few hours
Water retentionFrom 200mg/day
AromatizationFrom 200mg/day
ActionQuick but ineffective below 200mg/day
Positive effects- better vascularization

- increased energy
- dense, hard mass and strength gains
Probable side effects- gynecomastia

- acne
- testicular atrophy
ProtectionNolvadex + Proviron
Take 1 tab of each per day throughout the treatment.
RecoveryClomid
Take 1 tab per day for 20 days after the last day of your cycle.
HCG
Take between 2500 and 5000 IU per week for 20 days after the last day of your cycle.

It is one of the only forms of testosterone available orally.

It has the advantage of not being hepatotoxic as it is absorbed by the lymphatic system and does not pass through the liver.

It is often combined with oxandrolone to obtain great gains in mass and strength.

Associated with Parabolan and a salt-free diet, it allows to acquire good muscle density by minimising water retention.

Undecanoate of testosterone in injection

TestosteroneUndecanoate (injectable)
Average dose1000mg every 14 weeks
Half-lifeVERY LONG
Water retentionyes
Aromatizationyes
ActionVERY LONG
Positive effects- better vascularization

- hard, dense mass and strength gains
Probable side effects- gynecomastia
- hair loss
- acne
- testicular atrophy
ProtectionNolvadex + Proviron
Take 1 tab of each per day throughout the cycle.
RecoveryClomid
Take 1 tab per day for 20 days after the last day of your cycle.

Unless this product is prescribed by a doctor, I do not recommend it in the bodybuilding world.
This is due to its extremely prolonged action.

This medication is, in fact, convenient for use in a medical environment for a testosterone replacement cycle for men over 40, for example.

If you are inclined to the undecanoate, it is better to resort to the oral route rather than the injectable one.

 

Testosterone iso-hexanoate

TestosteroneIsohexanoate

Half-life1 week

It has the peculiarity of increasing appetite, strength, aggressiveness…

These two esters offer the same advantages and disadvantages as testosterone propionate. The difference is just at the level of their respective durations of the action.

The testosterone isocaproate is an ester of medium duration (approximately 2 weeks) while the testosterone decanoate is a long-lasting ester (from 3 to 4 weeks).

These 2 esters are found in all testosterone mixtures.
