Yes. Fortesta includes an ingredient that accelerates the absorption rate of the testosterone in the gel. The manufacture recommends leaving the gel on for 2 hours to give the testosterone enough time to enter the dermal layer. After 2 hours the manufacture states that you can then shower.
So for your daily schedule, you'll be fine. Androgel on the other hand, takes up to 6 hours for the skin to fully absorb the gel. So you picked the better testosterone gel.
Word of caution though. Be aware that topical testosterone, although rare, can spread to others, causing cross contamination. So make sure you watch what you're doing if you're going to a local gym and make sure you are taking the proper precautions to prevent accidentally contaminating an unknowing individual by cleaning the equipment you use.
Hope this helps!
