This steroid is very popular among athletes because it allows quickly get significant progress in sports performance. According to the athletes, Trenbolone Acetate is the best choice if you need to prepare efficiently for competition or training.
Trenbolone is an androgenic steroid. It does not aromatize and therefore has no estrogenic side effects. Trenbolone has also anabolic properties: it is perfect for the growth of muscle mass and weight loss. In addition to certain advantages, Trenbolone also contributes to a significant increase in strength.
Trenbolone Acetate can be used only by men. It is not recommended for women (even in small doses).
The range of safe dosage varies from 50 mg daily to 100 mg every other day. Trenbolone Acetate is ideal for short cycles lasting 4-5 weeks. Start with small doses to check your individual tolerance of the drug.
Effects of Trenbolone Acetate
- Trenbolone Acetate cannot be converted into estrogen. Thus, it does not lead to gynecomastia and fluid accumulation.
- Trenbolone is one of the best steroids for lean muscle mass.
- This anabolic steroid may be used both to gain mass and strength and improve muscle quality.
- Bodybuilders often choose Trenbolone Acetate, because it provides extreme muscle hardness and elasticity.
- Due to its androgenic effects, Trenbolone fastens recovery and helps deal with enormous training loads.
- Powerlifters use this drug to increase strength and mass without significant weight gain.
In general, Trenbolone is the “privilege” of professional athletes. This drug is not suitable for beginners. It is essential in preparation for a competition in bodybuilding and powerlifting.
Trenbolone cycles and methods of administration
Beginners are advised to use Trenbolone Acetate at a dose of 75 or 100 mg every other day. However, to reduce the side effects and achieve muscle growth, it is advisable to use 37.5 to 50 mg daily (if you can use injections on a daily basis).
More experienced users find that Trenbolone Acetate used at doses of 500 mg per week has a very positive effect on muscle growth, but, at the same time, the risk of side effects will also be higher. Due to the negative impact on libido, Trenbolone is not recommended for use without Testosterone. You can use it for a short period of time with Proviron, along with a proper post cycle therapy (it should begin within 2 weeks after the last injection). If the cycle is longer than 4 weeks, then you must include drugs such as Tamoxifen or Gonadotropin. They will help avoid serious side effects and normalize testosterone production in the body.
Trenbolone Acetate works well in solo courses, but it gives the best results in combination with drugs such as Winstrol (Stanozolol), Anavar, Turinabol, Dianabol, Testosterone esters (Propionate, Enanthate).
Trenbolone solo is not recommended for beginners and women (high risk of side effects). There are some general guidelines for safe cycles with minimal risk. First of all, do not exceed the dosage in order to obtain more rapid and pronounced effect. The usual dose for Trenbolone Acetate is 50 mg daily. Secondly, it is necessary to start with minimal doses.
When used for more than 5 weeks, it is recommended to use Gonadotropin (from the second week of the cycle, at a dosage of 500-1000 IU weekly). Testosterone softens the effect of Trenbolone Acetate, and at the same time enhances its properties. However, it increases the possibility of side effects of Trenbolone. To get the maximum effect, it is also recommended to add sports nutrition and exercise regularly.
Trenbolone Acetate should not be combined with Clenbuterol and Ephedrine.
Common side effects
Among all injectable steroids Trenbolone is one of those drugs that should be used with extreme caution. Despite the undoubtedly positive impact on muscle and strength, the drug’s side effects can be really harmful. Trenbolone can cause the same side effects as other strong androgens. If a person is prone to hair loss, Trenbolone is likely to speed up this process. Some athletes note that Trenbolone Acetate may cause acne (more often than other steroids). And, of course, Trenbolone is definitely not recommended for women due to its strong androgenic properties and unwanted side effects that occur when taking strong androgens.
Common side effects when taking Trenbolone Acetate:
- sleep disturbance;
- increased aggressiveness;
- hair loss;
- testicular atrophy (with long cycles over 6 weeks).
Despite the fact that Trenbolone does not aromatize, the drug can cause problems such as gynecomastia (Trenbolone is usually combined with Testosterone, which can be converted to estrogens). Nevertheless, Trenbolone does not cause fluid retention in the body or other similar problems.
Sometimes Trenbolone may lead to sleep disturbances and insomnia. In addition, it can cause sweating (even with the slightest physical exertion). It may also affect the function of the cardiovascular system to some extent. This means it is not suitable for those who are regularly engaged in such sports or activities that require strong and healthy cardiovascular system.
Trenbolone may also lead to high blood pressure. Therefore, those who are going to use Trenbolone Acetate should regularly measure their blood pressure during the cycle.
Some people argue that Trenbolone has a negative effect on the kidneys. However, there is no clear evidence that this drug can cause kidney damage. Moreover, any impairment of renal function may be associated with sweating and inadequate fluid intake. Therefore, it is recommended to drink more during the cycle.
Trenbolone is a potent steroid that affects the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and inhibits the natural production of testosterone. Therefore, during long-term cycles one may need to use HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) to restore natural testosterone production. After all, Trenbolone cycle requires a proper post cycle therapy and diet.
In addition, some research studies have shown that Trenbolone may reduce thyroid hormone levels (although it slightly promotes weight loss). Therefore, those who have levels of T3 below normal are advised to take additional supplements during the course of Trenbolone.
Trenbolone Acetate can make you cough (the so-called “Tren cough”). Some athletes cough after each injection, while others may not have these symptoms at all. Such reaction may happen during injection: chest tightness, metallic taste in the mouth and uncontrollable attack of severe cough. There are some theories about the origin of Tren cough. Some of them speak about specific mechanisms leading to bronchospasm. However, the same symptoms may occur when using other steroids (such as Testosterone Cypionate and Equipoise).
