Everything You Need To Know About Trenbolone

2018-05-05T09:02:49+00:00 May 5th, 2018|

So you want to build some muscle and you’ve heard that Trenbolone is “the sh*t”.

But you also care about your health so you want to know more about it first.

Well you’ve come to the right place because today I’m going to tell you everything you need to know.

In this post I’m going to talk about;

  • What is Trenbolone.
  • What does it do.
  • How does it work.
  • The side effects.
  • And what results you can get from it.

The Trenbolone reviews and results are posted below too!

What Is Trenbolone

Trenbolone is an AAS (Anabolic Androgenic Steroid) that is popular among bodybuilders because it helps users to rapidly build muscle.

It’s sometimes referred to as;

  • Tren
  • Trenabol
  • Parabolan
  • Finaplix H
  • Trenabolic
  • Trenoid
  • Tren 75
  • Acetren

Tren is the 800lb Gorilla of anabolic steroids.

It’s 5 times more powerful than testosterone and 10 times more powerful than Deca Durabolin.

It’s some serious sh*t.

Trenbolone was originally created by Hoechst-Roussel in 1963 to be injected into cattle to increase their appetite, muscle growth and nutrient absorption.

As you’d expect it wasn’t long before the bodybuilding community sniffed out that these cows were getting jacked so bodybuilders started using it too with amazing results.

Hoechst-Roussel discontinued their Trenbolone in the early 1980’s.

For a while a French company sold Trenbolone for human consumption under the brand name Parabolan but that was also discontinued in 1997.

As you can expect, bodybuilders were sad as sh*t that they couldn’t get their Trenbolone anymore.

But then Hoechst-Roussel came out with what they call Finaplex pellets for cattle which contains Trenbolone acetate.

Some science minded bodybuilders realized that the Trenbolone can be extracted from these pellets and came out with home made extraction kits.

Finaplex Trenbolone extraction kit – Very much illegal.

The Finaplex pellets are legal because they are for cattle but the Trenbolone extraction kits are not and can get you thrown in jail.

Getting your Trenbolone from these pellets is the only way to make sure that you are getting legitimate Tren because there are no pharmaceutical companies that make Tren for humans anymore.

Pharma grade Tren just doesn’t exist.

Which brings me onto UGLs.

Apart from the Finaplex pellets, underground labs (UGLs) are the only way to get Trenbolone.

The problem with UGLs is that you are putting your complete trust into someone you’ve never met before.

There have been reports of some UGLs sending out products contaminated with heroin.

So you have to ask yourself if you’re willing to inject a vial of something some stranger sends you in the post in the hopes of it actually containing Tren.

Believe me, there are a lot of scammers in the online steroids market who will rip you off and there’s nothing you can do about it because they are hidden behind firewalls and proxies.

The Most Popular Steroid: Other than Testosterone, Trenbolone is the most popular steroid for guys who want to build muscle fast.

It can also be used for cutting cycles, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

How Does Trenbolone Work

When it comes to building muscle 99% of users will use a version called Trenbolone Acetate.

Trenbolone is fast acting and has a half life of 2-3 days so this is how long it takes to pass through your system.

Unfortunately this means that you need to inject yourself ever 2-3 days to keep your Tren levels stable.

The Science Bit: Trenbolone is a 19-Nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid.

Tren is a descendant of Testosterone and the 19 simply means that the 19th atom of Testosterone has been removed.

Deca Durabolin is also a 19-Nor and structurally they are almost exactly the same apart from 1 thing.

What makes Trenbolone 5 times more powerful than testosterone and 10 times more powerful than Deca Durabolin is that it contains a double bond on the 9th and 11th atom.

This double bond helps Trenbolone to bind to your androgen receptors a lot more efficiently than other steroids.

How Does Trenbolone Help You To Build Muscle?

Trenbolone greatly increases nitrogen retention which is essential for protein synthesis.

Protein synthesis simply refers to the rate at which your body builds new protein cells.

With faster protein synthesis comes rapid muscle growth and repair.

And don’t forget..

“The more nitrogen we retain the more anabolic we remain.”

Growth Factor: If you’re looking for something to increase your levels of IGF-1 growth hormone then look no further than Trenbolone.

Tren is one of the best anabolic steroids for increasing growth hormone which will help with anti aging, recovery and sleep.

Boosts Red Blood Cell Count: Trenbolone helps carry more oxygen around the blood by increasing your red blood cell count.

This improves recovery and endurance.

Reduces Cortisol: Tren can be especially helpful when bulking and cutting because it reduces overall cortisol levels.

Cortisol is your stress hormone and it can rise after a heavy workout, especially during your cutting phase.

High levels of cortisol put you in a state of catabolism which can destroy your muscle gains.

Trenbolone keeps your cortisol levels in check so you stay anabolic instead of catabolic.

Fat Burning: Now don’t get me wrong, you can still gain fat while on Tren but as long as you’re not eating way too much you’ll find that Tren can be a great fat burner because it helps to speed up lipolysis which means you’ll burn more fat for fuel.

If used correctly Tren will help you build muscle with very little fat.

Nutrient Absorption: You may remember I said earlier that Trenbolone is given to cattle because it helps them to absorb nutrients better, well the same is true for humans.

This means you get more out of what you eat and less vitamins and nutrients go to waste.

Fact: Trenbolone is detectable in drug tests for up to 5 months.

Trenbolone For Cutting

During a regular cutting phase most guys find that they lose some muscle and strength.

Because Tren reduces cortisol and keeps you in a state of anabolism it actually helps to preserve your muscle.

And because it increases your metabolism and lipolysis this further helps your body to burn fat for fuel instead of muscle.

This is why Tren is actually one of the most popular steroids among bodybuilders for burning fat.

Trenbolone For Bulking

Another positive thing to note about Tren is that it doesn’t cause water retention and it’s harder to gain fat.

This means that most of your gains will be pure muscle.

Gains: Most users of Trenbolone gain around 14lbs of muscle in an 8 week cycle.

You can still gain a bit of muscle at maintenance calories but for optimal results a 500 to 1,000 calorie per day surplus is recommended.

How To Use Trenbolone

Tren is administered by intramuscular injections every 2-3 days.

Bulking: If you are going to use Tren then it’s best to start with 50-100mg every other day which is a maximum of 300mg per week.

Some experienced users may go up to 600mg/week.

Most cycles last between 8-12 weeks.

Cutting: For cutting 50-100mg every other day is recommended.

Some guys will use 200mg every other day but this increases the chances of side effects.

For cutting Trenbolone is often paired with Winstrol.

Tren for women? Tren is not recommended for women because it will cause virilization which is when females start taking on male characteristics.

Side Effects Of Trenbolone

Tren is one of the most powerful steroids known to man and it can cause some serious side effects.

Some guys are completely fine to use Tren and some just can’t use it even at a low dose.

Here are some things to look out for;

Gyno: Tren is not estrogenic but it does stimulate Progestin which increases the chances of you growing man-boobs.

This is a common side effect with most steroids and is why guys tend to pair Tren with estrogen blockers too.

Hair Loss: Is your dad or your grandad bald? If so then you may have the male pattern baldness gene in you which will be activated by Trenbolone.

Simply put, it may make your hair recede or fall out.

Acne: Trenbolone can cause acne and very oily skin.

Tren Rage: Ever heard of roid rage? Well Tren rage can be on another level. Because of it’s androgenic nature it can wreak havoc with your emotions.

One minute you’re fine and the next you want to tear someone’s head off.

Cholesterol Problems: Tren is known to suppress good cholesterol and increase bad cholesterol levels in some users.

This is why it’s important to keep simple sugars to a minimum and make sure that you do regular cardio while taking Tren.

Natural Testosterone Suppression: Like most anabolic steroids Trenbolone will reduce your natural testosterone production by an estimated 70%.

A PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) is essential if you’re going to take Tren otherwise you’ll lose all your gains and feel like a little girl.


Liver Damage: Too much Trenbolone can be toxic for your liver. Don’t take it for longer than 12 weeks and don’t use more than 300mg/week.

Tren Cough: This is one of the most common side effects. After injecting Tren the oil can get in your bloodstream which is then send to your lungs where your body tries to get rid of it.

All of a sudden you’ll just start coughing your lungs up.

Cardio Issues: Some Tren’ers find it really messes up their cardio. One guy complained he got tired just walking up a flight of stairs.

Tren Dick: Ever heard of Deca-Dick?

Well there’s Tren-Dick too and it is no joke.

In some users Trenbolone has the ability to make your dick stop working.

And it gets even worse..

Tren-dick can last for up to a year after you stop taking it. 🙁

So before you even think about taking Tren you need to decide whether you want to potentially risk putting your dick out of action for a year.

It doesn’t happen to all who use it but it’s a very real possibility.

Other common side effects;

  • Anxiety

Here’s what one user said:

“I haven’t left the house in 3 days. I feel really anxious and nervous. I never used to feel like this. I keep looking out the window on the street to see how busy it is. I think I need to stop using Tren.”

  • Insomnia
  • Sweats
  • Increased heart rate

Even the mild side effects can be very disturbing.

The increased heart rate will have you feeling like you’re about to have a heart attack and the sweats will have you wondering if you’ve caught bird flu or something.

If you do decide to use Trenbolone and notice side effects then you could try reducing the dosage or just accept that it’s extremely powerful stuff and some just can’t tolerate it.

Warning: There are no pharma grade manufacturers of Trenbolone.

Pharma grade medicines are regulated to make sure that what’s on the label is in the medicine.

With Trenbolone you have to buy it from a UGL which is basically an illegal “Lab” in some guys basement.

So you never truly know what you are injecting.

Trenbolone Results

Want to know how much muscle you can gain?

Well, it all depends on how hard you train and how good your diet is.

Trenbolone is powerful but it’s only a tool. You still need to workout and eat right.

Now that’s out the way, on average it seems like most guys gain around 10-20lbs of muscle in an 8 week cycle.

An 8 week cycle will probably cost between $200-$400.

INSERT Study About Natural Vs Steroids.

Should You Use Trenbolone?

To put it bluntly, no.

There are better ways to build muscle than Tren like this.LINK

And the fact that there are no pharmaceutical makers so you have to trust that the UGL that you’re buying from is actually sending you a vial of Tren is not worth the risk.

When you buy from an UGL it can be underdosed, overdosed or it may not even be Tren that you’re injecting.

As an anabolic steroid it’s very powerful but there are some serious side effects including the fact that it will shutdown 70% of your testosterone production if you don’t get your PCT right.

And it can make your dick stop working.

Trenbolone = Avoid! (It works but it’s just not worth the risk.)

        Do you recommend taking a pct during the cycle? I read that taking something like Arimidex during the cycle can help.

    I was always skinny as a younger man and as I aged I developed the dad belly just looked bad . I felt I was too old to do anything like tren , but was introduced to it I found that I had very positive results when I was on a cycle . I felt youthful again and received many compliments on my new look. The only drawback was the cough very scary sometimes . I was seriously injured at work and have not worked out in two years my body slowly reverted back to a 50 something so I’m starting a new cycle in hopes I have the same results although I will not be able to work out as hard dt the injury.

    I think my boyfriend is on tren. He’s no stranger to steroids and has been taking test cyponate since before I’ve known him. His rages are getting out of hand lately and scary af, one minute he’s fine and the next, I mention the smallest thing (doesn’t even have to be negative or rude) and he blows up really bad. I’m getting scared to be honest. I asked him once if he started tren again and he denies it but I know he has bottles of it around the house. I guess why I’m here is to ask for help. What do I do? Is there anyway I can talk to him about it? Help him with his rages? I just feel lost.
