Trenbolone is a very powerful steroid that has never been FDA approved for use in humans. It was originally developed asfinaplex pellets for use as a vetinary product to be put under the skin of cattle. However over time bodybuilders have realised its unique properties and powerful benefits and it has become a favourite anabolic steroid for many, despite having more harsh side effects than most other steroids. Many people would convert the pellets into an injectable form, in a rather crude and dangerous manner that would neither be safe nor sterile, and poses many risks. However, despite being non-approved by the FDA, there are a number of respectable Underground Labs (UGLs) that produce quality injectable forms of trenbolone. For the user who understandably likes to stick to pharmaceutical grade steroids, unfortunately there is no such form of trenbolone available.
Trenbolone is a highly androgenic steroid, with binding to the Androgen Receptor (AR) in the region of three times as high as testosterone. It does not aromatise and so is not subject to estrogenic side effects. In addition to high androgenicity, it is also extremely anabolic too, thus is very good at building muscle mass, and retaining muscle mass in a calorie deficient mode. It is also thought that trenbolone inhibits cortisol production directly through the glucocorticoid receptors. Trenbolone is often found to be a body transforming drug, and also can aid a little in fat loss. This may be due to the very strong binding of trenbolone to the AR, which has been postulated to be one mechanism that results in the activation of fat loss pathways, possible through direct binding to fat cells' ARs. This makes trenbolone a favourite among bodybuilders for cutting, and in addition to these benefits, trenbolone usually results in large increases in strength due to its high androgenic effects.
Trenbolone although not converted to estrogen, does have progesteronic effects, which will be discussed further in the side effects section of this article.
Suggested Cycles / Uses
Typically today underground labs produce trenbolone acetate as 75g/ml or 100mg/ml. It is often recommended first-time users of trenbolone to use the faster acting acetate in case the side effects become too much for the user, they can then come off of the steroid very quickly and it is out of the system much quicker than, for example, the enanthate ester. For the novice user, 75mg or 100mg every other day (eod) is advised, however due to the acetate ester being even shorter than a propionate ester and the half life 1 day or less, to both reduce sides and aid gains, it is advisable that the user (if they can bear every day injections) injects trenbolone acetate every day (ed), at 37.5-50mg ed.
More advanced users may find that taking the trenbolone to amounts over 500mg per week has very desirable effects on strength and body composition, however note that the side effects will also increase with the increase in dose. Due to the negative effect that trenbolone has on libido, it is not generally recommended to take trenbolone without testosterone. However, one can take trenbolone for short periods without testosterone and introduce an aid such as Proviron (metsterolone) to help with the libido issues, along with proper extensive post cycle therapy (PCT) for recovery. A typical test-free cycle with trenbolone may include something like 600mg Primobolan per week, 400mg trenbolone enanthate per week, for 10 weeks, PCT starting 2 weeks after last injections. The enanthate ester and other similar esters of trenbolone can be injected twice per week. Below are some example cycles using trenbolone:
Testosterone propionate 100-150mg eod, 6-8weeks
Trenbolone acetate 75-100mg eod, 6-8 weeks, PCT 4 days after last prop injection.
Testosterone enanthate 750mg per week, weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-12
Winstrol 50mg ed weeks, 8-14
Primobolan 600mg per week, weeks 1-10
Testosterone propionate 200mg eod weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-10
Primobolan 600mg per week, weeks 1-10
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-10
Testosterone enanthate 1000mg per week, weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 500-700mg per week, weeks 1-12

Common Side effects
Out of all the injectable steroids available, trenbolone is the one that should be used with extreme caution and only after plenty of research into its side effects and common cycles have been carried out. Trenbolone side effects can be very bad to many users, so much so that they will not use it despite its very positive effects on the body and strength. Firstly, as trenbolone is so androgenic, all side effects that are seen with strong androgens can be expected (if prone) with trenbolone. If one is prone to male pattern baldness (MPB) than trenbolone will likely speed this up. Some users find acne on trenbolone worse than when on any other steroid. Certainly Trenbolone is not recommended for female users due to its strong androgenic properties and the common side effects that manifest themselves in females who use strong androgens.
Despite the fact that trenbolone cannot aromatise, due to the progesterone route it can cause things like gynecomastia, but this will only really happen in the presence of estrogen. This does happen though in many users, as trenbolone is usually stacked with a testosterone, which obviously can and will convert to estrogen. Gynecomastia from trenbolone can be quite bad many will find, however if you do not suffer from this than other estrogenic side effects should not be of worry, as trenbolone does not cause any water retention or similar, but in fact often gives a hardened look and feel to the muscles.
Trenbolone also seems to give many users poor sleep patterns and insomnia. In addition, it can cause severe sweating in many, both during the night time and also just from doing the smallest of activities such as walking up stairs, etc. It also can impair to a certain degree, cardiovascular function, which means that it is not ideal for use in those who regular partake in such sports or activity that require a decent level of cardiovascular fitness.
Trenbolone also increases blood pressure in many users, some to such a degree that they have to cease using it. Thus it is recommended that one who wishes to use trenbolone, invests in a blood pressure monitor so they can regularly measure their blood pressure and keep an eye on it throughout the cycle.
Many people claim that trenbolone has a negative effect on the kidneys. There are many of these claims certainly across the Internet since its use has become more widespread. However, there is no real evidence for these claims, and certainly I have seen many long-term users of trenbolone have kidney function tests that are well within the normal range. Perhaps the reason for this theory is the fact that when using trenbolone, many find that their urine can become a much darker more orange-brown colour. However, this is due to the fact that trenbolone undergoes very little modification or breakdown and is excreted as a rust-coloured oxidised form in the urine. In addition to this, any damage to kidney may not even be directly due to the trenbolone, but more to do with the increased sweating and water loss from excessive body heat whilst on trenbolone, without the sufficient addition of water intake. Thus it is recommended if running trenbolone to keep the water intake high.
As trenbolone is such a strong steroid, it is very harsh on the HTPA axis and will shut down the body's natural testosterone production very easily and, for many, very harshly. It is comparable to 'deca dick' that people can experience with deca, and longer cycles may need to include the use of HCG to restore one's own natural production of testosterone. Recovery from cycles containing trenbolone is not easy, and requires a very well thought out and stringent PCT routine and diet.
It has also been suggested through research that trenbolone actually (although aiding slightly in fat loss) reduces endogenous T3 levels. Thus some advocate the use of 25mcg T3 throughout a trenbolone cycle. This writer does not personally think that this is necessary; however it is something that users may wish to consider when using trenbolone, especially if their natural T3 production is on the lower side of the normal range. It is a very good idea to get blood work done both before and after any cycle including trenbolone.
The so called 'tren cough' or 'Fina cough' is well known amongst many tren users. Some users seem to get the cough following every injection; others never or extremely rarely will get the cough. Usually it is manifested upon injection, with a tightness in the chest, and a metallic taste in the back of the mouth, followed by an uncontrollable violent cough which can be quite frightening, as anyone who has experienced it will tell you, whether it's for the first time or not. There have been some very elaborate theories about the reasons for getting the cough from trenbolone, some of which have had mechanisms involving molecules that only trenbolone affects resulting in bronchioconstriction, etc. However, the fact remains that many users have also experienced the same cough from steroids such as equipoise and testosterone cypionate. In addition, these mechanisms that are proposed are highly unlikely to occur immediately upon injection, as that is too fast a timescale for the proposed mechanism. Thus it must be the result of something entering the blood stream and traveling to the lungs for the cough to be manifested that quickly.
This leads us onto the next theory suggested by many which is that trenbolone is produced by many UGLs, and as such is made with higher percentages of Benzyl Alcohol (BA) than pharma grade products are, and it is the alcohol that is causing the reaction. The only problem with this theory is that trenbolone is made by most UGLs with the same BA percentages as things such as testosterone propionate, and nandrolone decanoate. If it was purely the BA concentration, than we would expect to see the cough with these other products as well, which we do not. Thus, as we have eliminated the oil, solvents and carriers, it leaves us with the Trenbolone product itself as the potential culprit.
One thing that you notice about trenbolone is that it is often a golden-brown / rust colour when in oil solution. If the hormone powder is refined to greater than 99.5% purity or so, then the colour of trenbolone in solution actually gives a very light golden colour, much like other testosterone products; however, refining the hormone to this level of purity is extremely difficult. This is why there is colour variation from batch to batch with different underground labs; something as small as 0.1% purity can affect the colour of the final product.
As mentioned above when discussing kidney effects of trenbolone, the oxidised trenbolone is a rust colour - much like the colour seen of trenbolone in oil solution. What you also notice with steroids such as Equipoise and to a lesser degree, testosterone cypionate, is that these steroids too are hard to very highly refine and often a browny-rust colour, more so than products such as testosterone propionate, etc. It is very likely then that these oxidised particles get into the blood stream upon injection and this causes some sort of anaphylactic (allergic) reaction in the lungs as the particles react with the alveoli, perhaps. This seems to be confirmed by the fact that the darker the trenbolone is the more likely one is to get a cough (personal and general experience). The best way to try and avoid this is to firstly inject very slowly and not move the needle around after aspirating, and also mixing the trenbolone with another product such as test prop.
Trenbolone Acetate is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid and is considered the single greatest anabolic steroid by many performance enhancing athletes. This is one of the most versatileanabolic steroids on the market and can provide benefits quite unlike any other steroid. Trenbolone Acetate is also subject to numerous myths in the anabolic steroid world, but hopefully we'll be able to dispel these myths and gain a firm understanding of the compound. Trenbolone Acetate is officially classified as a veterinarian grade anabolic androgenic steroid. The Trenbolone hormone itself was first created in the late 1960's and the Acetate version would be sold under the names Finajet and Finaject. However, this is not the only Trenbolone compound. The same hormone would appear on the pharmaceutical market under the name Parabolan and was manufactured by Negma Laboratories out of France. This version of Trenbolone was comprised of the same active hormone that makes up Finajet and Finaject with the ester attached being the only exception. Parabolan carries the much larger Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate ester. It would also be the onlyTren hormone ever manufactured for human use and would be discontinued in 1997 despite a lot of therapeutic success. See the Parabolan profile for more information. Hoechst-Roussel, the manufacturer of the original Trenbolone Acetate products, would discontinue its veterinarian line in the late 1980's. However, during this time they would introduce Finaplix pellets; small subcutaneous implant pellets that contain the active Trenbolone Acetate compound. The pellets were intended to be used in cattle in order to increase the lean tissue of the animal shortly before slaughter. The pellets were so successful they have become a regular and integral part of the livestock market ever since. Numerous performance enhancing athletes have also purchased Finaplix pellets in order to convert them into their own injectable Trenbolone Acetate compound. While converted Finaplix pellets are common in many enhancement circles, over the years most underground labs have also begun to carry their own line of injectable Trenbolone Acetate. Other than testosterone compounds, it is perhaps the most sought after injectable steroid on the market. The benefits this steroid can provide to a cutting cycle are unmatched. In fact, you could stack numerous other anabolic steroids together and still not reach the level of power in Trenbolone Acetate. It is also one of the best off-season bulking steroids available. Not only will it pack on a lot of mass and cause tremendous gains in strength, it will do so in a cleaner way than most traditional bulking steroids. While it is not the only Tren form available, Trenbolone Acetate is preferred by most athletes. It is much easier to maintain peaked and stable blood levels with this version, and when coupled with the benefits it is not too hard to see why many refer to Trenbolone Acetate as the king of kings.
Trenbolone Acetate is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid. The 19-nor classification refers to a structural change of the testosterone hormone in that it lacks a carbon atom at the 19th position. This puts Trenbolone Acetate in the same category as Deca Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate). In fact, the Trenbolone hormone itself is simply a modified form of theNandrolone hormone. The Trenbolone hormone carries a double bond at carbons 9 and 11, which in turn slows its metabolism, greatly increases its binding affinity to the androgen receptor, and inhibits it from aromatizing. The resulting change makes Trenbolone one of the most potent anabolic steroids of all time. Simply by looking at its structural ratings, we can begin to see how powerful it is. Trenbolone carries an anabolic rating of 500 and an androgenic rating of 500 is well. Such ratings are based on and measured against the ratings of testosterone, which carries a rating of 100 in both categories. Beyond its basic hormone structure, Trenbolone Acetate has the small/short Acetate (acetic acid) ester attached to it. The ester is attached in order to control the hormone's release time post injection. By carrying the Acetate ester, this gives Trenbolone an active half-life of approximately two days. Some data shows its active half-life to be a little less than three days, so forty-eight to slightly less than seventy-two hours would appear to be a good range. This, obviously, makes Trenbolone Acetate a fairly fast acting steroid and will require injections to take place somewhat frequently in order to maintain stable blood levels. Trenbolone Acetate carries several powerful traits that are commonly associated with numerous anabolic steroids. However, while it carries numerous common traits, it also carries them at a rate of power and efficiency far above and beyond most steroids. Trenbolone Acetate also carries one trait that largely separates it from the rest of the pack and is what's largely responsible for making it such a valuable hormonal compound. Like numerous anabolic steroids, Trenbolone Acetate will greatly enhance protein synthesis and nitrogen retention in the muscle tissue. Protein synthesis refers to the rate by which cells build proteins; protein represents the primary building block of muscle. This will promote enhanced anabolism, as well as provide a strong protectant atmosphere during a caloric deficit. It will also largely promote a far greater level of recovery. As for nitrogen retention, the more nitrogen we retain the more anabolic we remain. Conversely, when nitrogen levels fall, this can lead to a catabolic or muscle wasting state. This is due to all lean muscle tissue being comprised of approximately sixteen percent nitrogen. While this is not a large amount, it is enough to make a very big difference. Once again, with enhanced nitrogen retention the anabolic atmosphere is greatly enhanced, tissue is preserved, and recovery is promoted. Like many anabolic steroids, Trenbolone Acetate has the ability to greatly promote Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 is a powerful, naturally produced protein based hormone that is extremely anabolic, highly important to recovery and rejuvenation, and affects nearly every cell in the human body. IGF-1 plays a role on muscle tissue, ligaments and tendons, cartilage, the central nervous system, and the pulmonary system. There are very few anabolic steroids that will promote IGF-1 like Trenbolone Acetate. Trenbolone Acetate also has the ability to greatly increase red blood cell count. Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to and through the blood. With an enhanced amount, this increases blood oxygenation. This will tremendously enhance muscular endurance and will once again greatly promote an enhanced rate of recovery. While Tren carries this trait, we cannot say it carries it in a manner that is above and beyond other anabolic steroids. Another common steroidal trait held by Trenbolone Acetate is its ability to inhibit glucocorticoid hormones. Glucocorticoid hormones, sometimes referred to as stress hormones, are in many ways the opposite of anabolic steroidal hormones as they destroy muscle tissue and promote fat gain. They are, however, essential to our wellbeing, to a degree, but the use of Trenbolone Acetate will ensure such hormones do not become dominant in the body. This will be useful during any phase of supplementation, but perhaps more so during a hard diet when glucocorticoids like cortisol often become dominant. Trenbolone Acetate's strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor will also be another trait that is very useful when dieting. Like most anabolic steroids, the use of Trenbolone Acetate will promote a more powerful metabolism; however, strong binding to the androgen receptor has been linked to direct lipolysis. This will be extremely valuable during a diet, but can also be tremendously beneficial during an off-season period of growth by helping the individual maintain a lower level of body fat. The final trait of Trenbolone Acetate is its ability to improve feed efficiency or what is sometimes referred to as nutrient efficiency. This is the precise reason why the hormonal compound is given to cattle. Food is the most important part of any plan, and the most anabolic substance we can consume. However, the body will only utilize each nutrient to a certain degree. The food in question will determine the rate of utilization. However, by including Trenbolone Acetate into a program, each nutrient consumed becomes more valuable, and the body is now able to utilize each nutrient to a higher degree. While the total intake of nutrients may not have changed, the body will be able to make better use of the same amount. The best way to look at it is like the money in your pocket. With one dollar you are able to buy one dollars worth of goods and services. Now imagine if you could take that same dollar and purchase ten dollars worth of goods and services. While perhaps a slight oversimplification, when it comes to the value of the nutrients you consume, this is essentially what Trenbolone Acetate will do.
The effects of Trenbolone Acetate are nothing short of remarkable. However, we want to look at the effects of Trenbolone Acetate in a more practical way so that you'll have a good idea as to what to expect from the steroid's use. You will find this hormone is extremely valuable in both cutting and bulking plans, but if an edge were going to be given to one phase of use, it would have to be cutting. During the cutting phase there is no anabolic steroid on earth as beneficial or as valuable as Trenbolone Acetate. This is one of the most powerful anabolic steroids available when it comes to the cutting phase and preserving lean tissue. During a diet, preserving lean tissue is one of the primary goals. The overall primary goal is losing body fat, but if lean muscle mass is not preserved, the diet cannot be deemed successful. However, in order to lose body fat you must burn more calories than you consume, and this can put your muscle tissue at risk. As you continue to diet and become leaner, muscle mass loss will occur. This is due to the body burning lean tissue to meet its energy demands. A successful diet will ensure the body burns stored body fat to meet this demand, but, due to the survival instinct of the body, it will often burn muscle mass instead. By supplementing with Trenbolone Acetate, we ensure this doesn't occur, ensure muscle mass is protected, and burn body fat at a higher and more efficient rate. The enhanced fat burning is due to the steroid's ability to promote a more powerful metabolism and even promote direct fat loss due to the strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor. The lean tissue protection and fat burning of Trenbolone Acetate is not the only benefit during the cutting phase. This steroid will have stronger conditioning effects than any anabolic steroid on the market. Specifically, we're referring to visual conditioning effects like hardness, definition, and vascularity. Not only are there no anabolic steroids that can promote these traits like Tren, there are not two other steroids you could stack together that would equal Trenbolone in this regard. While tremendously beneficial to the cutting phase and often considered essential to competitive bodybuilders during contest prep, Trenbolone Acetate is also a phenomenal off-season bulking steroid. When we refer to this hormonal compound as versatile, that is truly an accurate statement. There are very few anabolic steroids that can promote mass like Trenbolone Acetate. More importantly, the effects of Trenbolone Acetate in this regard are not only strong but are far cleaner than most traditional bulking steroids. This hormone will not and cannot promote water retention, meaning each and every pound of weight gained due to use will be lean muscle mass. Of equal importance will be this steroid's ability to help the individual control fat gain during a period of growth. To achieve true growth, this will require total caloric intake to be slightly above maintenance levels. How far above will vary from one man to the next, and while many often take it too far, this phase will still require a slight surplus. Unfortunately, this necessary surplus will promote body fat gains but due to the metabolic factors that surround Trenbolone Acetate they will be minimized. This is not a license to eat like there's no end in sight, you can still gain a lot of fat if you continually gorge but you should be able to make better use of your total caloric intake. Those who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate during off-season periods of growth should gain less body fat than they would have without it. Regardless of the purpose of use, all who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate will discover their muscular endurance is tremendously enhanced. This is a very common effect with numerous anabolic steroids, but perhaps a little stronger with Tren. Your muscles will not tire out as fast. However, some have reported that the use of the Trenbolone hormone tends to negatively affect their cardiovascular endurance, but this also appears to be a very individualistic type of thing. Some may find cardiovascular endurance hindered, while others will not. Regardless of this effect, muscular endurance will be enhanced as will the overall rate of recovery. This is important because recovery is where progress is made. Although it's hard for many to wrap their head around it, progress is not actually made in the gym. Training actually tears and breaks down muscle tissue, but recovery is where the benefits are held. By enhancing recovery, we recover faster and more efficiently. All who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate will also find this is one of the best anabolic steroids on earth for increasing strength. Those who supplement during a period of off-season growth will find tremendous increases in strength. However, even with maintenance level calories strength should still increase. During a caloric deficit, it is possible for a moderate strength increase to occur if the hormone is used early on in a diet. As the individual becomes very lean, such as competition lean, it's unlikely he should expect a strength boost. Again, this steroid is very common in competitive bodybuilder contest prep plans, and it is most commonly used at the back half or back end of a plan. This allows for the benefits to show through with the most strength. The hardness and definition won't be as pronounced if there's still a significant layer of body fat on the physique. However, during this phase of use, strength probably won't go up, but the individual should find he is able to maintain a lot more strength that would otherwise be lost.
There are no dosing or administration guidelines available for Trenbolone Acetate in a therapeutic capacity. The hormone has never been approved for human use. Remember, Parabolan (Trenbolone Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate) is the only Tren compound ever approved for human use. For physique related purposes, most men will find a dose of 50-100mg every other day to be a fantastic range. 50mg every other day is a fantastic place to start with 100mg every other day often being all the Trenbolone Acetate many men will ever need. Very few men will need more than 100mg every other day during the off-season. If higher doses are to be used, this will most commonly be during the cutting phase. Some men will be able to tolerate 100mg every day or 200mg every other day, but this does increase the risk of side effects greatly, especially response related. 50mg every other day is often deemed a very low dose, but remember this is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid. This is a very controllable dose for most men, should be very comfortable, and should provide fantastic results. If not, something is wrong with your product. On the injection schedule, every other day will be the most efficient. Every day can be fine but won't really provide much of a benefit over every other day. However, it is possible to only inject the hormone on a standard three day a week schedule, such as every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This will cause a slight dip in blood levels with the two days in a row of no administration, but, outside of competition circles, it really shouldn't be a big deal or even noticeable.
Trenbolone Acetate is widely available and one of the easiest anabolic steroids to obtain. Nearly every underground lab on earth manufactures this steroid. Other than testosterone it is probably in higher demand than any steroid, and because so many make it and the supply is so high, it should almost always be a very affordable anabolic steroid. Then we have the Finaplix pellets. This is a very interesting situation. As you're aware, anabolic steroids are controlled substances in the U.S. and in other parts of the world. However, Finaplix pellets are not controlled substances despite being comprised of Trenbolone. This is due to putting a control on them would tremendously damage the livestock market, dramatically increase the price of beef, and destroy a host of ranchers. Keep in mind if you buy Finaplix pellets and the needed conversion kits that can be found online in order to manufacture your own injectable Trenbolone Acetate, you will be breaking U.S. law. Due to the annoyance of making your own Tren from Fina pellets, most will turn to underground labs. However, always research a lab thoroughly before making a purchase and understand there are more unscrupulous labs than not.
Trenbolone is without a doubt one of the most beneficial anabolic steroids on the market. When we consider the therapeutic benefits of Nandrolone, or even Testosterone, it may not quite match up but on the basis of raw power and physique transformation Trenbolone Acetate is the king. No steroid will be as beneficial when cutting, not even close, and when bulking it is nothing short of fantastic. While Tren is beneficial during cutting and bulking phases, if you're only going to use it in one phase always choose cutting. Many will actually need to limit their Trenbolone Acetate use to one phase due to the harshness of the compound in some men, especially when we consider cardiovascular strain. However, solid responders who are in excellent health should find they can use the steroid during both phases with a high level of success.
