Glucocorticoid hormones are naturally produced steroidal hormones; however, they are not anabolic. In fact, glucocorticoid hormones are catabolic (muscle wasting) as they destroy muscle tissue and promote fat gain. Cortisol is the most well-known glucocorticoid hormone or as they’re often known stress hormones. These hormones are necessary to a degree in the body but not in large amounts. By inhibiting these hormones, we again promote a stronger anabolic atmosphere.
A testosterone hormone with the Enanthate ester attached, Testosterone-Enanthate carries with it a half-life of approximately 10.5 days. This is a fairly long half-life, to give you an idea Testosterone-Propionate carries a half-life of approximately 4 days; while the Enanthate form is long it is by no means the longest as forms such as Testosterone-Decanoate carry with them half-lives that reach 15 days. As you can easily see because Testosterone-Enanthate is a long ester form administration will prove to be infrequent in comparison to many other steroids with long lasting effects post injection ; however, there is an exception to this rule as we will later see.
