First why run nolvadex.. I would only do that if I started to see some signs of gyno..
The main reason for it taking longer is that the longer esters take longer to build up in your blood stream

yes , it might take 3-4 weeks to start seeing mega gains , but if u shoot 500 mg for example , of enanthate ,its active life is what ? 8 days ? so ure getting 500 mg in 8 days , thats around 50 mg per day of test , wayy more than what u make naturally per week ! and its only on the boards do i hear this talk , most people i know who dont know anything about the boards gain like crazy just shooting 1-2 amps of test a week ... maybe all in the mind !

Simple answer (at least part of your question). Lets say for the sake of argument that your taking test valerate witch has a half-life of 7 days and your taking 500mg a week. So you take the first 500mg week one and the half life goes by and by the next shot (one week latter) you still have 250mg left in the depot + the 500mg you just took. So now you have 750mg in depot with a half life of 7 days so you will have 375mg left in the depot + the 3rd weeks 500mg dosage. Before we go on think about what is happening weeks 1 and 2. The first week you had 250mg available over 7 days, about 36mg daily average. Week 2 on the other hand had 375mg over 7 days, about 54mg daily average. That is a about a 50% increase. Week 3 you now have 875 left in the depot making 437.5 over 7 days, about 63mg daily average. That is still a 17% increase in dosage. That is close enough to your full dose for our proposes but the test still takes a while to work (doesn't happen even overnight) It is still only in week 4 that you get almost your full dosage in a week, in other word you reach a equilibrium between the half-life and the amount of test in depot.Originally Posted by BigRich
Test E on the other hand will take even longer do to the heavier ester, 10.5 days verse 7.5 days. I used the valerate ester because it was convent to do so for a example.
If you want to avoid part of the wait you can always try front-loading your gear. If we had used 1gram in week 1 above we would have started at our equilibrium and could have it "kick in" a week to 2 weeks sooner.

props for using the valerate ester, I like that time span. Quickest half life while still making it convienent to pin twice a week *golf clap*
