Trenbolone, Dianabol, Anadrol and other anabolic steroids are the dark side of bodybuilding and many people are afraid to even talk about them, even though virtually all of the top level bodybuilders and many of the athletes you see on magazines use them.
It’s as if the bodybuilding media is ignoring the huge elephant that is in the room, although more and more people such as Dorian Yates and Rich Piana are becoming open about the subject. Still, there are other people like Kali Muscle that although his physique is surely enhanced, he claims he is natural.
The thing people need to learn regarding anabolic steroids is that they aren’t miracle workers; you still need to train hard, eat right, and have a lot of knowledge in order to make improvements. This is why I highly suggest you stay natural for at least 3 years before you touch your first needle or pill, because otherwise you will be mostly wasting your time and money. The last thing I want to mention before I begin this post is that steroids are used in many sports and not just in bodybuilding.
This particular post will look at Trenbolone, a very powerful and popular drug used by many bodybuilders.
What is Tren (Trenbolone) ?
This compound is undoubtedly the strongest injectable steroid currently available. Just like Nandrolone (commonly referred to as “Deca Durabolin” or “Deca”), Trenbolone is a 19-nor drug. Such drugs are based on testosterone but have had their 19th molecule altered, thus resulting in this new compound. Although similar in nature, Trenbolone is different than Deca Durabolin in that it doesn’t cause a lot of water retention while also giving the user incredible gains in terms of muscle and hardness. But just how effective is Trenbolone when it comes to building muscle? The best comparison I can give you is with testosterone, which itself is very well known for its great muscle building properties. Test has an anabolic score of 100 while Tren has a score of 500; that’s 5 times as much!
There are multiple reasons as to why Trenbolone is so anabolic. First off it greatly increases the levels of IFG-1, which is an extremely anabolic hormone. Not only does it double this hormone, but it also makes the muscle satellite cells more sensitive to said hormone and other growth factors. It may also increase the amount of DNA found in each muscle cell. This compound also has a very strong binding affinity to the androgen receptors, which makes it more effective at activating said receptor-specific mechanisms related to muscle growth. This can also aid in fat loss, but please be aware that that androgen receptors binding is not the ultimatum on a steroid’s effectiveness. For example Anadrol, an oral steroid, has virtually no binding affinity when it comes to A.R. but is still great for building muscle.
Trenbolone also increases the levels of nitrogen in muscle tissue, improves feed efficiency, and also increase mineral absorption. Feed efficiency is a term used in the livestock industry that basically refers to how much food is required in order to build a certain amount of meat on animals. The higher your feed efficiency, the better the food you eat will be utilized when it comes to building lean muscle. The list of benefits goes on and on, but there is one last thing I want to mention: Trenbolone is a highly androgenic hormone. Comparing it to testosterone again, which has an androgenic ratio of 100, Tren has 5 times that amount resulting in a whopping androgenic ratio of 500. This gives it great strength building properties as well as allowing it to improve the body’s estrogen/androgen ratio, reducing water under the skin.
Tren Steroid Uses and Cycles
Trenbolone is great for mass, strength, and hardening, but is very toxic and thus should not be abused. It has been stated that Trenbolone works better when estrogen is present in the system, which is why it synergizes very well with compounds that are likely to aromatize such as Test-e and Dianabol.
Although Trenbolone has many positive effects it also comes with a list of side effects. First off because this compound is so androgenic it can cause things such as hair loss, acne, and prostate enlargement; its high androgenic ratio also makes it a no-no for female athletes. It can also cause bloat and breast growth, increased progesterone levels, increased prolactin levels, testicular shrinkage, and is very toxic to the body.
Erectile dysfunction is also common with 19-nor steroids such as this one, but can be mostly avoided by taking such compounds alongside testosterone, preferably in a 1:2 ratio (100 mg of Trenbolone would need 200 mg of Test, for example).
Please be aware that this steroid has a detection time of 5 months and greatly reduces a person’s endurance, making it very ineffective for people who practice an endurance-dependent sport such as boxing.
Thanks for your time and I hope you have enjoyed reading this post. Please remember that I don’t encourage nor condone the use of anabolic steroids. The only aim of this post was to give you the required information about Trenbolone needed in order to make an informed decision. Make sure that you will do extensive research before you start looking for Trenbolone for sale online and use it.
