    Sustanon question (multiple half lives)


    To my knowledge, sustanon is a blend of a few different types of test with differing ester lengths, correct? And ester lengths affect
    half lives, right? So it seems to me that with sust, you'd have inconsistent blood levels on a regular basis because some of the test fades off rather quickly, while the longer acting components like the enanthate stick around longer. Can someone tell me in layman's terms how this would be useful, or how sust is most effectively used given its properties?

    The 4 different esters create a sort of 'time release'.

    yeah I thought that's how someone might describe it, but I'm wondering if that's why it seems to be particularly popular or if there are other specific reasons.

    I think it is popular mostly because people hear 4 different test esters and think "4 testosterones? Awesome, I'm gonna get hyooge". Really I have talked with many people that have used sust in many different ways and all had pretty much the same results. Many say that to take full advantage of the prop esters you should inject every other day. Some say you can inject once a week and be fine. Those that have done both always seem to say that either way will produce the same results. Sust was originally designed for once month trt shots. My good friend is doing twice a week and having no issues.

    It theoretically could mean less frequent injections(possibly once every couple of weeks), but it doesn't appear to work that well in practice. It just happens to be one of the more readily available(and cheapest) products on the black market. From personal experience, it tends to be more estrogenic and seems to put you on a bit of an emotional roller coaster. If you could obtain access to a single ester, you'd be better off IMHO.

    It is best suited for men on HRT.

    Funny, I have always heard the opposite.
