When you’re planning a testosterone cycle it really doesn’t matter which form of testosterone you choose. You’ll find six common forms available, 2 large ester based, 1 small ester base, 2 forms that are a combined 4 esters and of course, ester free testosterone. In any case, the same active hormone is in each form, the ester(s) or lack thereof simply affect its half-life, thereby affecting its initial impact and total duration, as well as needed injection frequency. In the chart below we have listed the 6 common testosterone forms, along with half-life, ester size and recommended injection frequency for performance needs.

As a side note, some steroid sources will carry other forms beyond these six, most commonly Testoviron, which is a mixture of Testosterone-Enanthate and Testosterone-Propionate. This should not be confused with Testoviron Depot, which is merely a brand of Testosterone-Enanthate. Testoviron is a fine choice for any testosterone cycle, and while most suppliers will not carry it, Testoviron is the only other mixture of testosterone we can recommend beyond the two listed in our list of six.

Other important notes about the cycles to follow, and these are very important. Although other steroids are shown in the examples, it will be the testosterone hormone that is the foundation. Further, while one testosterone form is chosen in each cycle substitutions can be made. For example, anywhere Testosterone-Enanthate is listed you can substitute Testosterone-Cypionate if you prefer. The same can be said of all forms, but you will need to adjust injection frequency to compensate where appropriate.
