Reaching Peak Performance
Since the 1960s, the popularity of bodybuilding grew at astonishing rates. One economy that has benefited from this surge in popularity is the supplement sector, specifically steroid production. Five times more powerful than Testosterone, Trenbolone is one of the most powerful and well-recognized names in the steroid business. But what are the origins of Trenbolone and how do you harness its power?
The History of Trenbolone
Starting in the late 1960s, scientists began developing
different versions of the Trenbolone steroid. There are three different
variations of Trenbolone: Trenbolone hexahydrobenzylcarbonate, Trenbolone
enanthate, and Trenbolone acetate. Under their German parent company Rousell
AG, an English and French manufacturer began producing the most popular version
of Trenbolone, Trenbolone acetate.
The results of Trenbolone usage are astounding. Weight gain
becomes easy and, as opposed to other steroids, is based on lean muscle mass
gain versus water retention. In fact, those who use Trenbolone to increase
muscle mass report very little water retention. This is in part due to some
modifications of its chemical structure versus other steroids.
After its creation, Trenbolone remained on the prescription
drug market for human grade use until the beginning of the 80s. In today’s
market, Trenbolone is a certified veterinary grade drug that is used to
increase the overall body mass
of cattle for the food industry. Even though it is not currently approved by the FDA for human use, scientific studies are still performed regularly to develop a form of Trenbolone suitable for pharmaceutical production and human usage.
What You Get with Trenbolone
As an anabolic androgenic steroid, Trenbolone is nearly five
times more powerful than Testosterone and ten times more powerful than Deca
Durabolin. This means that smaller dosages are needed in order to deliver the
same results as alternative steroids. But how does Trenbolone work with your
body to help you develop lean muscle mass?
One way that Trenbolone functions is that boosts the growth
hormone IGF-1. The significant increase in this growth hormone not only leads
to a massive gain in lean muscle mass, but also aids in anti-aging, promotes
muscle recovery, and improves sleep quality.
Trenbolone also reduces cortisol levels and increases overall red blood cell count. Because high levels of cortisol reduce the rate of muscle gain, keeping cortisol levels low is critical to bulking up on lean muscle. Additionally, with a higher red blood cell count, your muscles receive more oxygen which not only helps you maintain energy and endurance during a workout but also aids in post-workout recovery.
Trenbolone also increases the rate at which you burn fat.
For those looking to cut body fat percentage and increase muscle definition, it
helps your body remain in an anabolic state so that you can build muscle
without gaining fat. It also aids in nutrient absorption. With Trenbolone, your
body will become more efficient at digesting vitamins and nutrients, making
every calorie count. The result is that you are eating less food, but still
able to capture the same amount of nutrients and vitamins.
The Side Effects of Trenbolone
Although the benefits seem unbelievable, there are potential
side effects associated with Trenbolone. Some users experience no side effects
while others discontinue usage altogether due to negative side effects.
Like other steroids, Trenbolone may cause hair loss,
acne-covered and oily skin, abnormally large breast size, and emotional
instability. Many times, the emotional instability, or “roid rage”, is enough
to drive a user to quit Trenbolone altogether. More serious side effects
include an increase in bad (LDL) cholesterol, testosterone suppression, liver
damage or failure, anxiety, insomnia, increased heart rate, and erectile
dysfunction that can last up to a year after stopping Trenbolone usage. Other
users report violent coughing that is triggered by the Trenbolone reaching the
lungs after being injected into the bloodstream.
Dosage Recommendations for Trenbolone
Unlike other orally administered steroids, Trenbolone is
only administered through intramuscular injections. When using Trenbolone, it
is essential that it is injected every two to three days to keep a consistent
level of Trenbolone in the body. Because of its fast-acting nature, Trenbolone
lasts for about two to three days in the body. Failing to replenish these
stores leads to instability in Trenbolone levels, inconsistent results, and
possible negative side effects.
If you are a beginner and your goal is to bulk up on lean
muscle mass, the weekly recommended dosage is 300 mg per week. Averaged over
the course of a week, this results in 50 – 100 mg every other day, depending on
tolerance. As the body adjusts to the Trenbolone, some users have increased
weekly dosage up to 600 mg per week. In general, this cycle should last between
eight and 12 weeks, depending on the user’s experience and tolerance levels.
If the goal is to cut body fat percentage and increase
muscle definition, the recommended dosage is 50 to 100 mg every other day. As
the dosage approaches 200 mg daily, the chance for negative side effects is
greatly increased. Generally, the higher the dosage, the more likely that
negative side effects will occur and intensify.
Unfortunately, Trenbolone is not recommended for use in
women. Studies have shown that women who use Trenbolone for muscle gain can
start to take on male characteristics, or virilization.
What does Trenbolone Cost?
Trenbolone is not as cheap as some other steroids.
Typically, an eight-week cycle usually costs between $200 and $400. On average,
a diluted 10 ml dose of Trenbolone will cost between $60 and $100. For a 10 ml
dose of concentrated Trenbolone enanthate will cost between $90 and $130.
Customer Reviews of Trenbolone
Some people use Trenbolone for bulking up on muscle while
others may use it to cut down on fat and promote muscle definition. For those
who are looking for a substantial gain in muscle mass, Trenbolone can deliver
results. But there are still many people do not recommend incorporating it into
One reason that is cited in opposition to the use of Trenbolone is the serious side effects that it can have. Without balancing out Testosterone levels and managing your diet, Trenbolone can wreak havoc on the body. Additionally, because it is illegal and unapproved for human use by the FDA, there is no pharmaceutical grade Trenbolone. In order to obtain it, users are only able to purchase Trenbolone from underground laboratories. These facilities are not regulated and the quality and dosage may not be skewed, falsified, or incorrect.
However, despite the potential negative side effects,
Trenbolone remains a vital part of many users’ fitness and oftentimes the
results from taking Trenbolone cannot be replicated with other supplements or
steroids. Some users report life-changing results, with amazing body
transformations and increased energy levels.
Trenbolone: Good or Bad?
At the end of the day, it all comes down to personal choice. There are some potentially serious side effects of Trenbolone usage, but there are also massive benefits in weight gain and performance enhancements. If high-quality Trenbolone is used properly and balanced with other medications and supplements, it is possible to achieve the desired results with minimal negative side effects. But because the sale of Trenbolone for human usage is not approved by the FDA, the quality is often questionable and may open the user up to additional risks or even placebo dosages. The key thing to remember is that, if you choose to incorporate Trenbolone into your fitness regimen, you must ensure that you are only using high-quality Trenbolone and in the recommended dosage amounts. Deviating from these standards may result in negative side effects.
