Cotton oil base
The drug Trenbolone is, without a doubt, the most powerful injectable anabolic steroid used to gain muscle. However the full properties of the drug are not always fully understood.
Functions and Traits
Trenbolone is similar to the highly popular steroid Nandrolone, in that they are both 19-nor steroids, meaning that a testosterone molecule has been altered at the 19th position to give us a new compound. Unlike Nandrolone however Trenbolone is an excellent mass and hardening drug with the majority of gains being muscle fiber, with minimal water retention (1) It has an unbelievable anabolic (muscle building) score of 500.
When you compare that to Testosterone, which itself is a powerful mass builder, and has an anabolic score of 100 you can begin to fathom the muscle building potential of Trenbolone.
What makes Trenbolone so anabolic?
Numerous factors come into play. Trenbolone greatly increases the level of the extremely anabolic hormone IGF-1 within muscle tissue (2). And, its worth noting that not only does it increase the levels of IGF-1 in muscle over two fold, it also causes muscle satellite cells (cells that repair damaged muscle) to be more sensitive to IGF-1 and other growth factors(3). The amount of DNA per muscle cell may also be significantly increased (3).
Trenbolone also has a very strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor (A.R), binding much more strongly than testosterone (4). This is important, because the stronger a steroid binds to the androgen receptor the better that steroid works at activating A.R dependent mechanisms of muscle growth. There is also strong supporting evidence that compounds which bind very tightly to the androgen receptor also aid in fat loss. Think as the receptors as locks and androgen’s as different keys, with some keys (androgen’s) opening (binding) the locks (receptors)much better than others. This is not to say that AR-binding is the final word on a steroids effectiveness. Anadrol doesnt have any measurable binding to the AR& and we all know how potent Anadrol is for mass-building.
Trenbolone increases nitrogen retention in muscle tissue (5). This is of note because nitrogen retention is a strong indicator of how anabolic a substance is. However, it’s incredible mass building effects do not end there.
Trenbolone has the ability to bind with the receptors of the anti-anabolic (muscle destroying) glucocorticoid hormones (6). This may also has the effect of inhibiting the catabolic (muscle destroying) hormone cortisol (7).
Yet another amazing trait that must be noted is its ability to improve feed efficiency and mineral absorption in animals given the drug (8).
To help you understand what this means for you, feed efficiency is a measurement of how much of an animals diet is converted into meat, and the more food it takes to produce this meat, the lower the efficiency.
Conversely, the less food it takes to produce meat the, higher the efficiency & well you get the idea. Animals given Trenbolone gained high quality weight without having their diet adjusted, thus improving feed efficiency.
Finding new compounds which can improve feed efficiency is a billion dollar industry, and has spawned many nutritional advances in the bodybuilding world over the last few decades (CLA, Whey Protein, and HMB are compounds which spring to mind as having first been introduced by the livestock industry). What does this translate to for the hard training athlete? The food you eat will be better utilized for building lean muscle, and vitamins and minerals are also better absorbed which may keep you healthier during cycle.
Trenbolone is also a highly androgenic hormone, when compared with Testosterone, which has an androgenic ratio of 100; Trenbolone’s androgenic ratio is an astonishing 500. Highly androgenic steroids are appreciated for the effects they have on strength as well as changing the estrogen/androgen ratio, thus reducing water and under the skin. As if the report on Trenbolone was not good enough, it gets better; Trenbolone is extraordinarily good as a fat loss agent. One reason for this is its powerful effect on nutrient partitioning (9). It is a little known fact is that androgen receptors are found in fat cells as well as muscle cells(10), androgens act directly on the A.R in fat cells to affect fat burning.(11) the stronger the androgen binds to the A.R, the higher the lipolytic (fat burning) effect on adipose tissue (fat)(11).
Since some steroids even increase the numbers of A.R in muscle and fat (11, 12) this fat loss effect would be amplified with the concurrent use of other compounds, such as Testosterone. Trenbolone promotes red blood cell production and increases the rate of glycogen replenishment, significantly improving recovery (13).
Like almost all steroids, it’s effects are dose dependant with higher dosages having the greatest effects on body composition and strength. Mental changes are a notorious side effect of Trenbolone use (15), androgens increase chemicals in the brain that promote aggressive behavior(16), which can be beneficial for some athletes wanting to improve speed and power.
Trenbolone’s chemical structure makes it resistant to the aromatize enzyme (conversion to estrogen) thus absolutely no percentage of Trenbolone will convert to estrogen. Trenbolone administration would not promote estrogenic side effects such as breast tissue growth in men (gynecomastia, bitch tits) accelerated fat gain, decline in fat break down and water retention. Trenbolone is also resistant to the 5- alpha-reductase enzyme, this enzyme reduces some steroid hormones into a more androgenic form, in this case however this does not matter.
Trenbolone boasts an androgenic ratio of 500. It can easily cause adverse androgenic side effects in people who are prone to hair loss, prostate enlargement, oily skin and acne. Unfortunately Trenbolone’s potential negative side effects do not end there. Trenbolone is also a noted progestin: it binds to the receptor of the female sex hormone progesterone (with about 60% of the actual strength progesterone) (17). In sensitive people this can lead to bloat and breast growth worse still, Trenbolone’s active metabolite 17beta-trenbolone has a binding affinity to the progesterone receptor (PgR) that is actually greater than progesterone itself (18). No need to panic though, the anti-estrogens letrzole or fulvestrant can lower progesterone levels, and combat any progestenic sides.
The use of a 19-nor compound like trenbolone also increases prolactin & bromocriptine or cabergoline are often recommended to lower prolatin levels (20).
Testicular atrophy (shrunken balls) may also occur; HCG used intermittently throughout a cycle can prevent this. (21) It is also wise for Tren users to closely monitor their cholesterol levels, as well as kidney function and liver enzymes, as Trenbolone has the potential to negatively affect all of those functions.
Finaplix, being a powerful progestin, will also shut down natural testosterone production which even am relatively small dose and keep the testosterone level suppressed for an extended period of time, this can lower libido and cause erectile dysfunction. It is essential that you always stack Finaplix with testosterone.
The acetate ester is a very short-chain ester attached to the Finaplix molecule. It has an active life of 2-3 days but to keep blood levels of trenbolone elevated and steady, daily injections are often recommended. The acetate ester provides a rapid and high concentration of the hormone which is beneficial to those seeking quick gains, coupled with a rapid clearing time the acetate ester can be discontinued on the onset of adverse side effects.
Now that the properties of Trenbolone Acetate have been explained we can better understand how to use it in order to maximize its advantages. Evidence suggests that Finaplix when stacked with estrogen promotes more weight gain that Trenbolone alone(22), now Im not telling you to go pop some birth control with your Tren but the addition of aromatizing orals such as Dianabol and a long estered testosterone such as Cypionate or Enanthate would produce great gains in a bulking cycle. For a cutting cycle Finaplix is the best choice you have; Trenbolone’s powerful effect on nutrient shuttling allows a user to restrict calories and remain in a state of positive nitrogen balance (remember what that means?). The cortisol reducing effect and binding to the glucocorticoid receptor will greatly reduce the catabolic effects of harsh dieting and excessive amounts of cardio and not to mention that Finaplix itself may burn fat (due to its strong AR-binding).
A good choice to stack with Trenbolone in a cutting cycle is Winstrol. Winstrol has a low binding affinity to the AR and thus will act in your body in vastly different ways than the Trenbolone (i.e. in non-receptor mediated action). In addition, Winstrol is a DHT-based drug and Trenbolone is a 19-nor& throw in some Testosterone (prop), and you’ll have a cutting cycle which takes advantage of all 3 major families of Anabolic Steroids (Testosterone, 19-nor, and DHT), as well as vastly different AR-binding affinities and mechanisms of action.
Ironically, even though Trenbolone is an excellent contest prep drug, it lowers your thyroid level. Also, this drug is a poor choice for athletes who rely on cardiovascular fitness to play a sport. Trenbolone anecdotally at least, reduces many athletes ability to sustain high levels of endurance.
Unfortunately, this makes Trenbolone a poor choice for many.

1. What is Trenbolone Acetate
Trenbolone Acetate is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid. The 19-nor classification refers to a structural change of the testosterone hormone in that it lacks a carbon atom at the 19th position.
This puts Trenbolone Acetate in the same category as Deca Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate). In fact, the Trenbolone hormone itself is simply a modified form of the Nandrolone hormone. The Trenbolone hormone carries a double bond at carbons 9 and 11, which in turn slows its metabolism, greatly increases its binding affinity to the androgen receptor, and inhibits it from aromatizing. The resulting change makes Trenbolone one of the most potent anabolic steroids of all time. Simply by looking at its structural ratings, we can begin to see how powerful it is. Trenbolone carries an anabolic rating of 500 and an androgenic rating of 500 is well. Such ratings are based on and measured against the ratings of testosterone, which carries a rating of 100 in both categories. Beyond its basic hormone structure, Trenbolone Acetate has the small/short Acetate (acetic acid) ester attached to it.
The ester is attached in order to control the
hormone’s release time post injection. By carrying the Acetate ester, this gives Trenbolone an active half-life of approximately two days.
2. Suggested Uses/Cycles
Most men will find a dose of 50-100mg every other day to be a fantastic range. 50mg every other day is a fantastic place to start with 100mg every other day often being all the Trenbolone Acetate many men will ever need. Very few men will need more than 100mg every other day during the off-season. If higher doses are to be used, this will most commonly be during the cutting phase. Some men will be able to tolerate 100mg every day or 200mg every other day, but this does increase the risk of side effects greatly, especially response related.
50mg every other day is often deemed a very low dose, but remember this is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid. This is a very controllable dose for most men, should be very comfortable, and should provide fantastic results. If not, something is wrong with your product. On the injection schedule, every other day will be the most efficient.
Every day can be fine but won’t really provide much of a benefit over every other day.
However, it is possible to only inject the hormone on a standard three day a week schedule, such as every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This will cause a slight dip in blood levels with the two days in a row of no administration, but, outside of competition circles, it really shouldn’t be a big deal or even noticeable.
3. Side effects of Trenbolone Acetate
There are certainly some possible side effects to Trenbolone Acetate use, but possible is an important word to note. Over the years, and this is more than apparent on steroid message boards, an idea has been passed along that the side effects of Trenbolone Acetate are assured. In fact, some actually believe that if they don’t occur it must be due to a poor product. Not only is this a ridiculous way of thinking, it really doesn’t make any sense.
Trenbolone, while tremendously powerful, is not some strange steroid from the 5th dimension. Remember, it’s simply an altered form of Nandrolone, which itself is simply an altered form of the primary male androgen testosterone. While the possible side effects of Trenbolone Acetate are often blown out of proportion, we cannot call this the most side effect friendly anabolic steroid of all time but most certainly not the unfriendliest. Many of the possible side effects of Trenbolone Acetate will be very similar to many anabolic steroids and just as controllable. Many will also be largely dependent on genetic predispositions and sensitivity. However, when it comes to sensitivity there is a group of what we can call response side effects that are a little unique to the Trenbolone hormone.
There will be those who experience such effects while many will not. Unfortunately, the response effects will keep many from being able to use this steroid. In fact, while most men will be fine there will be more men who cannot use Tren than perhaps any anabolic steroid.
However, keep in mind the response effects of Trenbolone Acetate are in no way an indicator of the hormone working. If you’re a fantastic responder, you shouldn’t have any issue at all. In order to help you understand the possible side effects of Trenbolone Acetate, we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all the information you’ll need.
* Estrogenic: Trenbolone is not estrogenic. This anabolic steroid does not aromatize at all, which is the very reason excess water retention is impossible with this steroid.
However, gynecomastia is still possible due to the hormone carrying a strong progestin nature. Progesterone has the ability to stimulate the estrogenic mechanism in the mammary tissue, which can promote gynecomastia.
Many men will not have an issue, but an individual’s sensitivity to gynecomastia will play a role. Anti-estrogens will provide protection for those who need it.
An important note: for many years, it has been assumed that Tren based gynecomastia was due to a buildup in prolactin. However, this has been proven false largely thanks to the work of William Llewellyn. In fact, his study on the issue has largely been conclusive; it is the progestin nature, not prolactin, that causes . Llewellyn has also noted that the use of aromatizing steroids with Trenbolone greatly increases the odds of gynecomastia, often making the use of an anti-estrogen a necessity.
* Androgenic: Tren is a highly androgenic hormone and as to be expected there are possible androgenic side effects of Trenbolone Acetate. Such effects include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness, and body hair growth. While such effects are possible they are entirely dependent on your genetics. For example, if you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness it will be impossible for you to lose any of your hair. However, if you are predisposed, while you were going to lose it anyway, the rate of loss will be accelerated. In fact, Tren can be one of the unfriendliest steroids to the hairline in predisposed men.
Due to the androgenicity of Trenbolone, some will try 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride to gain protection. However, the 5-alpha reductase enzyme does not metabolize the Trenbolone hormone and related inhibitors will have very little if any effect. You will not be able to reduce the androgenicity of this hormone, which should be kept in mind if such effects are a concern for you.
* Cardiovascular: The side effects of Trenbolone Acetate in this category can be a concern for some men. This steroid can have a strong, negative impact on cholesterol by suppressing HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and increasing LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). This negative effect on cholesterol should not be as strong as most oral anabolic steroids, but it will be far more pronounced than most injectable steroids. It is controllable, but it will take a concentrated effort. A cholesterol friendly lifestyle is imperative, which means a cholesterol friendly diet rich in omega fatty acids, low in saturated fats, and low in simple sugars. It also means incorporating regular cardiovascular activity into your routine, even during off-season periods of growth. Do not buy into the idea that cardio is a bad idea during the off-season. That is a myth that has done more harm than good. Many are also encouraged to include a cholesterol antioxidant supplement when using Trenbolone.
Trenbolone Acetate can also have a negative impact on blood pressure. However, it does not appear to negatively affect most healthy adult men in this way. Regardless, it is possible and you should keep an eye on it. If you cannot control your blood pressure, you should discontinue use immediately.
* Testosterone: Regardless of the purpose of use, your genetics or rumors you may have heard, the side effects of Trenbolone Acetate will always include natural testosterone suppression. All anabolic steroids suppress natural testosterone production, but the rate of suppression varies greatly from one steroid to the next. In the case of Tren, it will be more than significant. It will be nearly impossible not to fall into a low testosterone state without the inclusion of exogenous testosterone. Include exogenous testosterone during your cycle and this problem is solved.
Once your cycle ends and all the exogenous hormones have cleared your system, natural testosterone production will begin again on its own. However, natural levels will still be very low, and it will take a good bit of time to reach a full recovery. For this reason, most are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. A PCT plan will stimulate natural testosterone recovery and ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise. This will not promote a full recovery on its own, that will still take time, but it will shorten the process. It will also ensure cortisol does not become the dominant hormone when testosterone levels are low for an extended period of time. If cortisol becomes dominant, this can destroy your physique. Some important notes on natural testosterone recovery: natural recovery assumes no prior low testosterone state existed. It also assumes severe damage was not done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to improper anabolic steroid use.
Another important note is while a PCT plan is very beneficial, being off of the cycle for a short period of time is counterproductive. This should be kept in mind in hardcore circles.
*Hepatotoxicity: On its surface, Trenbolone Acetate is not considered a hepatotoxic anabolic steroid. Most should have no issues with liver stress or damage. However, the hormone does appear to provide a level of toxicity with extremely high doses, but it appears to take doses that are far beyond what most any human would ever undertake.
The odds of any hepatic stress are extremely rare.
*Response Effects: The final side effects of Trenbolone Acetate surround those that will keep some from using the hormone. On their surface they don’t sound too bad, but they can occur in a way that is beyond dramatic. The response side effects of Trenbolone Acetate include anxiety, insomnia, night sweats, and rapid heart rate. If such effects occur, lowering the dose can sometimes help. Extremely high doses can cause these effects, but a lot of men will find they occur at any dose. If this is the case, the hormone may not be for you.
4. Trenbolone Acetate Reviews:
Trenbolone is without a doubt one of the most beneficial anabolic steroids on the market.
When we consider the therapeutic benefits of Nandrolone, or even Testosterone, it may not quite match up but on the basis of raw power and physique transformation Trenbolone Acetate is the king. No steroid will be as beneficial when cutting, not even close, and when bulking it is nothing short of fantastic. While Tren is beneficial during cutting and bulking phases, if you’re only going to use it in one phase always choose cutting. Many will actually need to limit their Trenbolone Acetate use to one phase due to the harshness of the compound in some men, especially when we consider cardiovascular strain. However, solid responders who are in excellent health should find they can use the steroid during both phases with a high level of success.
