Trenbolone is an oral steroid with a high anabolic androgenic rating. The anabolic rating of Trenbolone is approximately five times higher than Testosterone, while its androgenic ratio is three to four times more powerful than Testosterone. Trenbolone does not aromatize into estrogen compound, so there are no water retention or risk for gynecomastia even in high dosages. Because of this, Trenbolone has become very popular among bodybuilders, powerlifters, and other athletes who use steroids to increase muscle mass.
There are mainly two types of stacks when it comes to the usage of Trenbolone: bulking stack and cutting stack. Bulking stack usually contains Testosterone or other compounds that promote muscle growth, while cutting stack is designed for rapid fat loss.
Trenbolone was originally manufactured as a veterinary compound, but it wasn’t long until human use became prevalent. Research still hasn’t determined the exact reason why Trenbolone is so effective, but many believe it’s because of enhanced nutrient partitioning. This means nutrients are more readily redirected toward muscular tissues rather than adipose tissue (fat cells) when you’re taking this drug. This causes your body to immediately seek out alternative energy sources like carbohydrates and proteins, breaking them down into glucose and amino acids before transporting them to muscle cells for building new muscles instead of storing the excess calories in adipose tissue.
You can also use Trenbolone with Dianabol to increase protein synthesis. This is the reason why it is called stacking since you stack products from different groups or from different manufacturers. It’s a good idea to run Deca-Durabolin at the beginning of this stack, so you have enough anabolic effect on your muscles even if they are catabolic (breaking muscle tissues for energy). You will need Testosterone or some other form of exogenous Testosterone if you want any anabolic benefits after that Bill Phillips style cycle. Also, a solid PCT plan should be in place after your 12-week cycle. And if you do it right, your blood work will come out great, and everybody will think whatever drugs you took were awesome.
It’s also important to note that you should never take Trenbolone with any other compound that converts into estrogen. Not even an aromatase inhibitor will protect your joints and liver from the potential damage of estrogen hormones. This is why Trenbolone is not a good choice for bulking cycles. It can be used as a finisher after a steroid cycle (cutting), but only if there’s enough lean mass tissue on your body to keep it from easily burning during this process. Also, most people find the side effects of Trenbolone intolerable when taking full descriptions doses, so make sure you don’t go overboard if you plan on running this drug in any version of stacking.
It is also not recommended to stack Trenbolone with alcohol or any other drugs that are toxic to the liver or kidneys. And of course, you should cycle Trenbolone for about 12 weeks since there are no stacks available that can show it’s safe to use this drug long-term.
As far as dosages go, they will vary depending on what type of results the user wants to achieve. Some may opt for small doses in order to maintain muscle tissue while losing fat at the same time, but more experienced users generally tend toward higher dosage ranges. A general rule of thumb is to take between 25-100mg each day during cutting cycles and 50-150mg per day when bulking up before a competitive event. It is also a good idea to stack Trenbolone with other compounds like Winstrol and Anavar in order to avoid estrogenic side effects and keep muscle gains manageable.
Since Trenbolone has an extremely strong binding affinity for the androgen receptor (A.R), it blows practically all other A.R-binding steroids out of the water when it comes to effectiveness, even those that are far more expensive, such as Halotestin (Fluoxymesterone) and Anadrol (Oxymetholone). This is why it’s so popular among bodybuilders – they use it specifically because of its ability to enhance nitrogen retention in muscles by increasing levels of Glutamine synthetase (an enzyme that is involved in the assimilation of nitrogen by muscle cells).
Trenbolone has a very short half-life of only about an hour, so it needs to be injected at least once per day. Because Trenbolone is a potent androgen, however, many users choose to inject it every 4 hours during the day for maximum effectiveness. This does not mean you should overdose, but more than 100mg each day will likely result in side effects such as night sweats and insomnia.
Trenbolone increases red blood cell count due to its ability to decrease erythrocyte (blood cell) fragility through its interaction with collagen synthesis in the body. The increased oxygenated blood flow may also support muscle pumps and vascularity, particularly during cutting cycles.
Trenbolone crosses the blood-brain barrier to exert its effects on the central nervous system. When it binds to androgen receptors in brain cells, Trenbolone stimulates the production of key neurotrophic factors which support neuron survival and differentiation as well as axonal growth (the long projections that neurons use to communicate with each other). This is why many people find Trenbolone gives them mental clarity and focus. It also has a powerful fat-burning effect due to its ability to lower leptin levels, increase free testosterone concentration, upregulate thyroid hormones (TSH), and down-regulate myostatin levels. As stated before, these effects are dose-dependent, so be sure you don’t abuse Trenbolone.
Trenbolone is the most powerful oral anabolic steroid, and it has proven to be highly effective in increasing strength as well as muscle gains for many individuals who are willing to put their bodies through high-quality diets and heavy weightlifting workouts. While trenbolone side effects are rare when the drug is used correctly, there is always some risk involved with taking any A.R-binding compound, particularly one that’s administered orally. Therefore it’s necessary to take all precautions by using Trenbolone responsibly and under a doctor’s supervision if you decide to experiment with this potent drug.
Trenabol 100 is available per 10ml vial (100mg/ml).
It is generally suggested that Trenbolone be placed into the system either during the evening or at bedtime. Some users choose to split their dosage and administer half of it in the morning and place the remaining half just prior to bedtime. The advantage of splitting your doses is that you can avoid feeling lethargic or groggy throughout the day by only administering half your daily dose for breakfast, followed by a second injection at night before going to sleep. Although some experienced bodybuilders find this advantageous, many people choose to use Trenbolone exclusively at night since higher dosages taken over extended periods of time tend to disrupt normal sleeping patterns. Some individuals may even opt for short-acting esters such as TBal75, which allow for Trenbolone to exit the body rather quickly after injection, making it easier to fall asleep.
What’s your cycle look like?
I would recommend stacking Tren with either Dianabol or Anavar because I feel you would benefit most from stacking Tren with one of these two drugs. You need an oral compound for this stack so that you can take advantage of the benefits provided by both compounds without having one compound partially suppress the effects of another. Obviously, if you are not comfortable taking an oral compound, this stack is out of the question, but I feel, based on your goals and experience level, that you will be fine with one of these two compounds. The other option is adding Winstrol V (Stanozolol), which will also be an oral compound. If you choose to stack Tren with this compound, the recommended dosage of Winstrol V is 25mg per day.
I would keep my Trenbolone cycle fairly short for this purpose. I like to run my tren cycles eight weeks on and four weeks off. Again, if you’re new to Tren, it’s not recommended that you run it as long as I suggest here simply because your body needs time to recover from what will be severe suppression of natural testosterone production. A good beginner trenbolone cycle is something like 12 weeks total length with only four weeks of actual trenbolone use at maybe 50-75mg per day along with your Sustanon 250 injection twice per week. Post cycle therapy (PCT) will consist of HCG and Clomid, with perhaps a SERM like Nolvadex as well to combat any remaining estrogenic activity not eliminated by your PCT plan.
I would recommend running a longer trenbolone cycle if you have more time available or are trying to bulk up for a powerlifting meet etc. The reason being is that the principles of hypertrophy dictate that you must provide either mechanical tension/distension, metabolic stress/fatigue, or a combination of both in order to stimulate muscle growth. Obviously, if you’re going into a strength competition, then providing mechanical tension at heavyweights will best suit your needs which is what makes this category so great for bodybuilders – you can use heavy weights and keep adding weight to the bar even if your muscles aren’t fully recovered yet.
However, I don’t believe that metabolic stress/fatigue is as critical for bodybuilding success as it is for powerlifting or strength competitions. Therefore, I prefer shorter trenbolone cycles in the 8-week range so as not to sacrifice too much of my off time from other activities such as division 1 sports, spring training, etc.
The advantage of running a longer tren cycle with more total weeks of actual trenbolone use is that you will be able to take larger doses than if you were only injecting 50mg per day for eight weeks. Although some people experiment with dosages as high as 200mg per day, there is a much greater risk of side effects at these higher dosage ranges. In my opinion, it’s better to stay in the 75-100mg range for eight weeks and then decrease your dosage by 25-50mg if you ever choose to run Tren again after this cycle.
So what do you think? Any other tips or recommendations? What would be a good trenbolone cycle for a first-time novice anabolic steroid user who wants to cut but still retain some muscle mass? I know you’ve explained how to structure the dosages previously, so feel free to link me up with one of those articles if I haven’t covered everything here.
