Trenbolone is an extremely strong steroid which has never been approved for human use by the FDA. It was available as finaplex pellets for usage as a veterinary product for certain animals. But eventually bodybuilders started to realize its powerful properties and the strong gains possible when using trenbolone. It is now one of the most popular anabolic steroids available, regardless of having severe side effects when compared to most other steroids. Before trenbolone was produced by underground labs, a lot of individuals would use pellets and turn it into an injectable version. This was of high risk to the user as a chance of infection was quite high when injecting trenbolone made from pellets. Today there are several Underground Labs (UGLs) which make injectable trenbolone amongst other steroids.
Trenbolone is an extremely androgenic steroid, binding with the Androgen Receptor (AR) at a rate of 3 times higher than testosterone. It does not aromatize and hence there are no estrogenic side effects with trenbolone. Besides its high Androgenic rating, it also has a high anabolic rating and therefore is extremely potent when it comes to building muscle mass, and maintaining muscle mass when on a calorie restricted diet. Trenbolone is often referred to as a steroid that can change ones body very fast, and even many people believe it can also burn fat. This might be because of the extremely powerful effects of trenbolone to the AR that has been assumed to be one mechanism which results in the initiation of fat loss. These are all reasons why trenbolone is so popular, even with its serious side effects, many bodybuilders choose to use this steroid.
Trenbolone is usually sold in 10ml vials dosed at 100mg/ml or sometimes even 75mg/ml. First time users should opt for the acetate version of trenbolone as it has a much shorter half life than the enanthate version. The main reason for this is if any side effects occur, the user can stop the cycle immediately and the side effects should start going away within a few days.
For beginners a dosage of around 50mg EOD (Every other day) is more than enough for good results. Taking a dosage higher than this is not necessary as a first time user and will probably bring unwanted side effects. More advanced users often take much larger dosages, often as much as 600mg a week.
For a cycle where the main goal is weight loss and to maintain lean muscle mass, trenbolone can be used with testosterone propionate and winstrol, clenbuterol can also be added to help speed up the fat loss results.
For bulking cycles, most users combine trenbolone enanthate with testosterone enanthate and dianabol.
