Trenbolone is an androgen and anabolic steroid (AAS) of the Nandrolone group. It was created in 1963 but itself was never marketed to humans, being used at the time for veterinary use on cattle. It is about five times more anabolic and androgenic than Testosterone. There are three esters of Trenbolone that are normally used in body building: Acetate (most used), Enanthate, Propionate.
What Trenbolone is used for in bodybuilding
Trenbolone Acetate is one of the most potent steroid on the market designed to increase muscle mass. Commercially known as Tren, Finarex or Finajet, it is widely used by bodybuilders to build dry, hard and lean muscle fiber. As the body absorbs most of it, the muscle and strength gains will be very qualitative, with much less water retention and more power in the muscle. Progress towards visible results will be fast as well, as it is considered five times stronger than Testosterone. Trenbolone is one of the very few anabolic steroids able to burn fat while building muscle mass. It is perhaps the best option for bodybuilders as it is very versatile. It can be used for a bulking cycle with very little fat increase, or in a cutting cycle to prevent muscle loss.
Trenbolone side effects
Trenbolone is a very strong steroid and side effects are strong as well. The most relevant is Testosterone shut down, visible even with low dosages. The natural production of Testosterone in the testicles will simply slow down to a halt. Trenbolone is five times more androgenic than testosterone, therefore its androgenic side effects are mostly the same: oily skin, acne and baldness. Tren also has an impact on the cardiovascular system, as Tren makes the blood thicker.
Trenbolone cycle for beginners
Trenbolone is a steroid not recommended to athletes new to steroid use, as its side effects can be quite harsh. It is better to start with less powerful steroids and gradually upgrade to Trenbolone. Although Tren can be used alone, it is much better to pair it with any kind of Testosterone. For beginners in a first Trenbolone cycle, it is imperative to start with a very low dosage, like 200mg/week, injecting 50mg 4 times a week.
Week 1-8 Trenbolone 200 mg/week
Trenbolone cycle for intermedate users
Bodybuilders that have done Trenbolone cycles before usually increase dosage up to 350-400 mg/week and prolong the cycle to 10 weeks.
Week 1-10 Trenbolone 350-400 mg/week
Trenbolone cycle for experienced users
Tren Enanthate is not commonly used in solo cycles. More experienced/advanced steroid users will use this steroid in cutting cycles stacked with Test Enanthate or Cypionate, Masteron, Equipoise, Winstrol and/or Anavar.
Week 1-6 Trenbolone Enanthate 600 mg/week + Testosterone Enanthate 750 mg/week
Week 7 Trenbolone Enanthate 750 mg/week
Week 8-12 Testosterone Enanthate 600 mg/week + Masteron 400 mg/week
Below there is another example of a stacked Trenboone cycle for experienced bodybuilders. This cycle stacks Trenbolone Enanthate with Primobolan Depot, Testosterone Enanthate and Anavar for 14 weeks.
Week 1-10 Tren Enanthate 500-700 mg/week + Primobolan Depot 600 mg/week + Testosterone Enanthate 1000 mg/week + Oral Anavar 80-100 mg everyday
Week 11-12 Tren Enanthate 500-700 mg/week + Testosterone Enanthate 1000 mg/week + Oral Anavar 80-100 mg everyday
Week 13-15 Oral Anavar 80-100 mg everyday
