How does trenbolone that is intended to be fed to cows end up becoming one of the most popular anabolic steroids in the world?
Testimony of the times that we live in maybe.
Believe it or not, Trenbolone is on the menu cards of most steroid cycles in the world. Kids as young as 17 are hopping on to anabolic steroids.
And if that wasn’t bad enough to begin with, they are throwing in Tren into their maiden cycles.
Spare a moment to think that we are talking about a drug that was never intended to be used by humans.
A drug that has one of the worst side effect profiles in the world. A drug that can cause some serious shit in your head (Mental sides).
Yet, Trenbolone is in demand and rather than dissing people left, right and center, we thought that it would be best to shed some light on the compound.
Show you the results that you can achieve and some of the side effects that it can cause. Maybe it will help you decide whether the compound is worth the risks that come with it.
So here’s a brief guide for newbies looking to add Trenbolone to their steroid cycles.
Trenbolone or Parabolan is an injectable anabolic steroid that is very similar in structure to Nandrolone which in turn is derived from the testosterone molecule.
It has an unbelievable rating on the anabolic scale, that of 500. This makes it five times as potent as Test.
What’s even more amazing is that the rating translates perfectly into real life results.
You can gain a boatload of muscle without as much as a drop of water retention on Tren. Something that’s impossible with any other steroid.
What a lot of people do not know though is that Trenbolone is a veterinary drug that is fed to feed cattle to bulk them up before they are sent to the slaughter house.
Trenbolone for human consumption was pulled off the market in 1997 after a brief but tumultuous stint as a therapeutic drug. It is also worth mentioning that Trenbolone has never undergone human trials.
However, an average-sized cow is just given 200mg of Tren, which more than suffices to add sufficient muscle mass to their bodies.
In comparison, the average 200 lbs. recreational bodybuilder is using as much as 500-600mg of Tren per week.
The advantages of Trenbolone
Milligram by Milligram, Trenbolone will give you more bang for your buck than any other steroidal compound.
And therein lies the popularity of the drug.
Lean, dry muscle:
Trenbolone increases the production of RBC, increases nitrogen retention and protein synthesis. This naturally leads to better recovery and an increase in lean muscle mass. But, what separates it from other steroids is that it does this more effectively. The muscle that you will gain on Tren will be dry. There will be very little to no bloat at all. Tren is one of the strongest androgen receptors in the world. This also helps in altering the estrogen and androgen ratio. The result is very little water or fat under the skin. If you have noticed the paper thin skin that bodybuilders boast of, then Tren is probably one of the reasons.
Believe it or not, Trenbolone is an exceptional fat loss compound. Club that with the lean muscle gains and you have the perfect compound for a body recomposition.
Trenbolone also improves lean muscle and prevents the accumulation of fat by partitioning the nutrients from the food you consume. You get more out of every gram of protein, carbohydrates and fat which means that you need to consume less calories to gain muscle.
Trenbolone binds to glucocorticoid hormones thereby preventing catabolism that otherwise occurs during a harsh diet and exercise routine. This also leads to cortisol suppression.
All in all, Trenbolone has all the traits of a near perfect anabolic steroid. If only, the potential side effects weren’t so harsh, we’d happily recommend it to anyone looking to wet their toes in steroids.
The risks of running Trenbolone
Trenbolone’s side effect profile makes it one of the harshest compounds that you can ever run, even at mild doses.
In fact, we would go to the extent of saying that if you aren’t competing, avoid Trenbolone like the plague. You don’t need it. And there are much safer compounds that can get you the same results.
Here’s a small glimpse into the potential side effects.
Mind altering sides: Undoubtedly, the most serious side effect of Trenbolone is the mind altering effect. It causes extreme aggression in some people. But in others, it causes delusions, paranoia, anxiety and even hallucinations. We spoke to a bodybuilder who said that he felt that he could dodge bullets when he was on Tren. On one occasion, he was ready to run into an exchange of fire happening between some cops and burglars cause he felt invincible.
Progesterone and Prolactin:
Trenbolone is a strong progestin which increases the risk of gyno manifold. Worse than estrogen to be honest. Also, it is a 19-nor which increases Prolactin levels. Two drugs that you need to add to the cycle are Letrozole for the progesterone related sides and Caber for the Prolactin.
As one of the strongest AR binding steroids, Tren can easily trigger severe androgenic side effects like balding, oily skin and acne if you are genetically prone to it. In women, Trenbolone can cause severe virilization.
Kidney, Liver and Lipids:
Trenbolone is also harsh on your kidney on your liver and on your cholesterol levels. It will shut you down even at the lowest possible dose. So you’d have to run it with a Test base to be able to retain the gains and to prevent feeling like a woman.
Is Trenbolone worth the risk?
We would personally never vouch for it unless you are competing.
Recreational users in particular should stay away from compounds like Tren.
The perfect Trenbolone cycle
But if you have made up your mind, then here’s how to use it.
Run it with Test Prop or Test Enanthate and throw in Dianabol to the mix for the perfect bulking cycle. Run Dianabol for the first 4-6 weeks only. The rest for 12-weeks at 500mg/week for the test and 350mg/week Tren Ace.
For a cutting stack, we recommend Tren with Test Prop and Winstrol. Winstrol is perfect for the finishing stages of the stack as it has a very low affinity to bind with the androgen receptor. This cycle has three different compounds from different steroid families.
