Trenbolone Enanthate first hit the market as an answer to the discontinued Parabolan (Tren-hex) and has been a favorite of many performance enhancers ever since. As a Trenbolone based hormone Trenbolone Enanthate will provide the same quality traits as its more popular cousin Trenbolone-Acetate. While there are a few minor differences between the two the most notable revolves around the ester and how it effects administration and total active duration. Just as is with the short ester version Trenbolone Enanthate can be used in any cycle; however, most will use this form during bulking periods due to generally using other long ester base steroids; it simply keeps things simple. Let’s take a look at this popular compound and determine if it’s right for you.
Like all Trenbolone forms Trenbolone Enanthate is a member of the 19-nor class of anabolic steroids and carries an anabolic rating of 500 and an androgenic rating of 500 as well. Its direct nature by-which it functions, is no different than with any other form with the exception of the ester creating a few notable changes. A long ester base steroid Trenbolone Enanthate carries an active half-life of approximately 10.5 days. The more popular Trenbolone-Acetate carries a half-life of approximately only 3 days and as you can see this is a massive difference.
By the ester in-which is attached Trenbolone Enanthate does not have to be injected as often as the Acetate form. With the Acetate form injections are normally performed on an every other day basis with some enhancers reaching frequent administration levels of every single day. This is not the case with the long ester base Enanthate version simply due to the extended half-life. Most Trenbolone Enanthate users will find twice weekly injections to be all they need with some choosing to inject only once per week. If there was ever an advantage that Trenbolone Enanthate carried over its comparable Acetate form it is in injection frequency. No one likes being a pin cushion and with Trenbolone Enanthate you don’t have to be.
Another difference is in the total milligram potency. Trenbolone-Acetate is more potent on a milligram for milligram basis; however, one can receive the same amount of active hormone by simply adjusting the dose. For example, 100mg of Trenbolone-Acetate will provide the user 87mg of the actual Trenbolone hormone, while 100mg of Trenbolone Enanthate will provide the user with 72mg of the actual Trenbolone hormone. To reach the same level of potency using Trenbolone Enanthate one could simply take a little more to make up the difference that is taken up by the mass of the Enanthate ester.
By this way of thinking and using a little simple math we can easily say there is no difference in the two compounds; however, what shows up on paper does not always translate directly into real life. Many performance enhancers simply show better progress with the Acetate form even when the dosing is matched with the Enanthate version and regardless of what paper may say you cannot argue with what’s right in front of your face. To begin the shorter ester hits you faster but more importantly it’s much easier to maintain stable blood levels with a shorter ester when injection frequency is up to par.
The end game is simple; Trenbolone-Acetate is the more superior Trenbolone form but if Trenbolone Enanthate is what you have available it will suffice; after all, Tren is better than no Tren regardless of the form. In any case the same general results can be obtained with either form. You can grow larger and become stronger; you can reach new levels of supreme conditioning with either form. If you’ve read through this so far you might be under the impression that we’re implying Trenbolone Enanthate is not a good steroid and if that’s what you’re thinking you need to read this again. For all intense purposes Tren is simply Tren just as testosterone is testosterone; however, the ester attached to Tren does appear to make a little more difference in the case of Trenbolone and if you can understand that then you can understand how best to supplement to meet your needs.
