Testosterone is testosterone. Testosterone aromatizes to estrogen.
Please explain how test propionate (if used consistently, preferably ED, for a 12 week cycle) will aromatize less than an equal amount of testosterone enanthate, taking into account the ester weights in determination of “equal amount”.
Not being a dick, I’m just sincerely interested in why you believe this is this case. [/quote]
You’re not, and it is a valid question. The internet offers a wide variety of information on steroid use, unfortuanatley almost all of it is users personal experiences, and very rarely do I stumble upon an actual scientific study, especially on specific subjects. So, from reading other forums I’ve time and time again come to the conclusion that Test P is considerably less likely to cause water retention. Reasons given are “because it’s only in your system for a few days, and doesn’t have time to.” that simply cannot be true, and in general any crackhead can pass his 6 cents off as truth.
Some sites, and my source, stress that this is also the case, with little or no real scientific explanation given. I give websites more credit, but certainly take their findings with a grain of salt. Some of them are:
“most people from other discussion boards who have tried differing esters on their various cycles agree: Testosterone Propionate causes the least side effects and the least bloating. For this reason, its often the testosterone of choice in cutting cycles.”
“Another nice advantage of propionate is that it causes less bloating than longer acting esters. Besides the cosmetic advantage it allows test to be used while cutting â?? perfect for competitive bodybuilders. This alone is why you can never tell a prop lover â??test is test.â?? There is a difference. How much of a difference, however, is arguable.”
“Another benefit of using testosterone propionate is that is causes less water retention than other testosterones. This is attractive to those who want the mass and strength gains of testosterone without as much bloat. Itâ??s also invaluable to competing bodybuilders who want to maintain size, strength and libido up to contest time but without excessive bloat.”
There you have it. I sincerely wish I could give you professionally supported proof- I wish I could give myself professionally support proof on a what a proper cycle for my specific goals, but that isn’t easy to come by, and that’s why I’m on forums.
Also, to throw in a kicker, there is actually more testosterone in 100mg of Prop than say Enanth, so there is more test that could convert to estrogen. If anyone can clue us in I’d appreciate it.
