Another popular myth is that because testosterone propionate is a short ester based steroid, it is not as effective in bodybuilding as other variants like enanthate or propionate, which are long ester based steroids. Actually, all these steroids have testosterone as their active ingredient, and the way it acts on the body’s anabolic system does not change with variants. In fact, when measured per 100 milligrams of each variant compound, it is seen that propionate contains more amount of testosterone than cypionate or enanthate. For example, while propionate contains 83mg of testosterone, the other variant cypionate is seen to contain only 70mg of the same . Ultimately, by adjusting the dosages of various types of testosterone, you can gain the same kind of results.
