Trenbolone Acetate (Tren) has been regarded by many as one of the strongest and most effective steroids to change your physique quickly. This steroid is part of the 19-nor family of steroids which are characterized by a modification at the 19th position. Like trenbolone, another popular steroid in this 19-nor family is the very popular Nandrolone (Deca Durabolin and NPP), although the real-world actions of these two steroids are very different.
Scientist and steroid experts rate trenbolone as having an anabolic and androgenic score of 500/500, with Testosterone being the base at 100/100, all steroids are rated as compared to Testosterone. This rating of 500/500 means Trenbolone is five times (5x) more powerful than Testosterone in both its anabolic and androgenic effects. When talking about the anabolic effects of a steroid we are referring to the desirable effects like muscle building, nitrogen retention, cell repair and protein synthesis. In addition, Trenbolone is five times (5x) more powerful than testosterone in its androgenic effects. When talking about the androgen properties of a steroid, we are referring to effects like muscle hardness, strength gains, increasing metabolism and, in some users, increased “aggression”. Trenbolone’s chemical structure keeps it from being turned into female hormones, like estrogen, by the aromatase enzyme, so estrogen side-effects are not a concern. Trenbolone’s chemical ring alterations keep the aromatase enzyme from attaching to it and imparting its “feminizing” structural changes. Since trenbolone cannot aromatize and will not cause water-retention, the muscle gains made by trenbolone are very hard and dry; in fact, some users report a very noticeable drying effect from this steroid.
Acetate is, by far, the most popular injectable version of trenbolone. This is mainly because it’s been the easiest to obtain for most steroid users. For almost a decade, you couldn’t visit a steroid forum without seeing threads about Finaplix-H conversions. This trend died down when UG labs came around and made costly and dangerous conversions unnecessary. Although there is some debate about the half-life, acetate is usually injected every other day. Though, more hardcore users inject daily. I find this delivers marginally more results, but makes you feel like a pincushion. Tren acetate is often stacked with testosterone propionate during cutting cycles; in addition, winstrol is considered synergetic with trenbolone.
Many of the side-effects due to Trenbolone use are very easily controlled but there are others that are more of a tossup and for many men will prove to simply be too much to handle. Luckily Tren does not aromatize making many aromatase based side-effects little concern; it also means any weight gained through Tren use will be pure lean tissue since water weight is of no concern. However, a common based aromatase effect in Gynecomastia is still very possible due to this steroids progestin nature and quality aromatase inhibitors are advised. Other possible side-effects may include hair-loss in men who are predisposed to male pattern baldness, acne in some and high blood pressure in predisposed men or in men who take the dose beyond responsible levels. The above side-effects of Tren are largely controllable and with responsible use most men will have no problems at all but there are other potential negative reactions that truly make this a harsh steroid. Remember, responsible use will always prove to be your best friend and responsible use will improve your odds but the harsh side-effects of this steroid do exist and include: Anxiety, Decreased Libido, Erectile Dysfunction, Insomnia, Night Sweats, Rapid Heart Rate.
Dosages and Usages
Dose ranges for trenbolone vary greatly depending on the ester preparation being used and the desired effects of the user. Trenbolone acetate is injected every day or every other day, in dosages ranging from 50mg per injection to, as high as, 200mg per injection.
