What is Clenbuterol?

Clenbuterol is a bronchodilator used to threat asthma and other conditions. It belongs to the sympathomimetics group of drugs, which affect sympathetic nervous system, mostly by affecting beta or alpha receptors. In Clenbuterol’s specific case, its effect results on increased fat loss.

How does it works?

Being a beta-2 agonist, Clenbuterol works as a fat burner by binding with beta receptors (mostly type 2 in humans) in fat and muscle tissue in the body. When this bond is formed, the receptors then start a series of chemical reactions leading to the production of cAMP. cAMP then produces and activates enzymes which induce fat breakdown.
Given that Clenbuterol has little effect on beta-1 receptors, it is capable of reducing reversible airway obstruction, with less cardiovascular effects, if compared with nonselective agonists. This whole process will create an increase in the body’s temperature, which will make the body burn more calories. However, your body will attack this matter through beta receptor down regulation, which will dictate how long can you run clenbuterol and still get results. Clenbuterol also lowers lipoprotein lipase activity. This prevents fat deposition and makes fat more responsive to the Hormone Sensitive Lipase activity described above. It is also important to mention, that beta-2 agonists such as Clenbuterol have been shown to increase T3 levels, thus enhacing clenbuterol’s fat burning capabilities.

Another benefit of Clenbuterol, are its anti-catabolic properties. This occurs as Clenbuterol blocks both ca++ dependent proteolysis in rat skeletal muscle, as well as the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic pathway. When beta 2 blockers are administered, the effect is not observed. Blocking these pathways inhibits muscle tissue breakdown.

One important thing that must be observed, is that in the past it was believed that Clenbuterol could be used as an Anabolic in humans. This was based on several studies performed on livestock and rats, which in fact showed such results. However, the doses used on these animals, if translated into human doses, would probably kill a person.

How is Clenbuterol dosed

For males the common maintenance dose of Clenbuterol is between 120-140mcgs per day. For females the dose of Clenbuterol goes down to around 80-100mcgs per day. It should however taken seriously, and each person must stablish a maximum safe dose, based on their experience.

How should I cycle Clenbuterol?

This is a very important point of every drug, that some pleople overlook, or just don’t go into enough detail. Clenbuterol should be cycled 2 weeks on/2 weeks off (this can change if ketotifen is used-see below). This is caused by two major factors.

  1. Beta-2 receptor down regulation: this will cause the effectiveness of Clenbuterol to be reduced as time goes by.
  2. Long half life: it has biphasic elimination, with the half-life of the rapid phase being about 10 hours, and the slower phase being several days. This cause the theory of using it 2 days on/2 days off to flaw, as in fact you would be on the whole time, and your beta receptors would not have enough time to recover.

If you use ketotifen you could in theory stay on Clenbuterol for an undefined period of time. This is because contrary to Clenbuterol, ketotifen up regulates beta receptors. The recommended dose of ketotifen is 2-3mg per day, and it should be taken before bed, as it causes drowsiness.

A typical Clenbuterol cycle for a male would be something like this:

  • Day 1: 20mcgs
  • Day 2: 40mcgs
  • Day 3: 60mcgs
  • Day 4: 80mcgs
  • Day 5: 100mcgs
  • Days 6-14: 120mcgs

Please be aware that you must set your own limits, and listen to your body.

What are the possible side effects?

Common side effects of Clenbuterol are increased perspiration, insomnia, muscle spams, restlessness, palpitations, involuntary trenbling of the fingers, nausea and increased blood pressure

Dealing with Injection Pain

Injection is not the most popular method of administration for those new to steroids, but as they will quickly learn, injectables are the safest for men in terms of long term health and by following proper injection instructions, the risks are minimal. However, with this in mind, injections can be difficult as it may result in pain and even infections. In this article we will examine some of the reasons this happens and ways to avoid it.

Causes of Injection Pain
One of the main reasons injections can be painful is the esters involved. Esters are basically buffers that slow the release of a steroid into your system and this allows for less vigorous injection cycles. The pain is caused after the steroid has been released leaving just the ester to crystallize which makes it take longer to dissolve while longer esters dissolve more readily. This is just one reason why it is a good idea to alternate your injection site as you do not want these crystals to build up and cause pain. Additionally, steroids that are released quickly can also cause pain, the worst offender being water based injections or injections with no ester at all. Additionally, injecting too quickly can tear muscle tissue while injecting into a new spot can be painful as the muscle will not absorb the compound as quickly.

Methods of Relief
One method of alleviating pain is to add additional sterile filtered oil to your injections at a ratio of 50:50 and injecting slowly (30 seconds per ml). One may also take some ibuprofen to decrease any swelling. Another strategy is to freeze the tip of the needle thus decreasing the pain as it pierces the skin.

In addition to all of these strategies, it is also important to keep everything you are using clean, to choose the right needles, to pick the right injection sites, and follow the proper injection guidelines accordingly in order to avoid infection. More information on these topics can be found here.

Infections can be identified by these localized four traits: heat, pain, redness, and swelling. You may also experience chills, fever, and pus excretion. If you believe you may have an infection, you should see your doctor or local hospital immediately. Although it can be a good idea to keep a various array of antibiotics at home, unless you see fast results you may risk giving the infection enough time to enter your bloodstream. Also, the misuse of antibiotics can create immunity in the bacteria making it resistant to treatment and therefore a threat to others. Always talk to a doctor when administering an injection, it could save your life.

Risks/Side Effects of Trenbolone

Trenbolone does not exhibit any estrogenic activity and therefore estrogenic side effects are not a concern with this compound. It is also resistant to the 5 alpha reductase enzyme, but this is of little comfort to a user as trenbolone is already of the most androgenic drugs in common use by steroid users. For this reason androgenic side effects should be expected by most users that undertake a cycle of this drug. Prostate enlargement and oily skin/acne are commonly reported by users. As well anecdotally many users have reported that trenbolone is one of, if not the, harshest compound for losing one’s hair. If a user is genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness he may want to avoid trenbolone.

Having listed the harsh androgenic nature and side effects associated with trenbolone, it should come as no surprise that women are not recommended to use this compound. The usual virilizing effects such as deepening of the voice, body/facial hair growth, and enlargement of the clitoris, among others are likely to cause problems for female users. These effects can appear at even relatively low doses. Trenbolone is not a compound that women should attempt to administer.

Now due to the lack of estrogenic side effects associated with trenbolone it would seem that users would have little to worry about in terms of side effects like gynecomastia, water retention, etc. However trenbolone is a progestin, meaning that it has the ability to bind to receptors of the female sex hormone progesterone. Also, like other 19-nor compounds trenbolone increases prolactin levels. Side effects related to these reactions can include breast growth and lactation. To prevent these side effects as they relate to increased prolactin levels a user can use several compounds including bromocriptine, vitamin b6, and/or cabergoline. Letrozole can also be used to lower progesterone levels. It should also be noted that trenbolone lowers thyroid levels temporarily which in turn raises prolactin levels. It is therefore advisable that users may want to use the compound T3 to combat this effect in part.

Being a progestin, trenbolone also has a dramatic effect on users’ natural testosterone production. Much in the same way that nandrolone does, trenbolone can suppress the natural production of testosterone for weeks after a user has ceased administering it. For this reason it is advisable that users use testosterone in conjunction with trenbolone if they wish to avoid sexual dysfunction, libido problems, or mental side effects associated with a lack of testosterone. Anecdotally many users have also reported that testicular atrophy is nearly always a problem when using trenbolone and that it is much more dramatic than with other compounds. Users may wish to administer human chorionic gonadotropin to help counteract this.

The psychological effects of trenbolone use are also quite distinct in some users. Of course the obvious effect would be a reaction to the androgenic nature of the compound. An increase in aggressiveness is often reported by users, as androgens help to affect brain chemistry and may cause feelings of well-being, angst, aggression, or anxiety. As well, anecdotally some users have also reported that they experience vivid dreams while using the compound.

Kidney and liver function is negatively affected by trenbolone use as well. It is recommended that users closely monitor these throughout a cycle making sure that no problems arise. As well, users will also report that darker than normal urine is a common side effect of use of trenbolone. This should not be a cause of alarm among users; however they should ensure that there is no blood in the urine as this is obviously a sign of trouble.

Comparison between Trenbolone Enanthate and Trenbolone Acetate

Trenbolone enanthate unlike testosterone-based steroids, does not result in the development of feminine sexual characteristics in men. This steroid has the ability of stimulating protein synthesis gains that prove useful in new tissue formation that, in turn, promote muscle growth or hypertrophy. Moreover, Trenbolone enanthate is used by those into boxing, MMA, and cycling as it helps with strength and speed. Trenbolone enanthate can demonstrate unmatched efficacy in reducing body fat levels as it has a strong cortisol-reducing effect along with the ability to bind to the glucocorticoid receptor.

Trenbolone Acetate

Trenbolone Acetate has the molecular formula of C20H24O3 and has an anabolic-androgenic ratio of 500:500. It has an active life of 2-3 days and has the molecular weight of 270.3706 g/mol at the base. Trenbolone Acetate, a 19-nor steroid, is derived from the compound Nandrolone. It is characterized by strong androgenic properties and no estrogenic activity. Trenbolone Acetate has a binding affinity for androgen receptor five times the strength Testosterone. Trenbolone acetate is admired globally by elite athletes as it can dramatically improve the uptake of nitrogen by muscles and improve the level of protein synthesis. Ideal for cutting cycles, Trenbolone Acetate does not get metabolized by aromatase or 5α-reductase into estrogenic compounds like estradiol or into Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

The primary difference between Trenbolone Acetate and Trenbolone enanthate is esters. While Trenbolone enanthate, featured by comparatively less esters, peaks at a slow pace and leaves the system slowly, Trenbolone Acetate with more esters peaks faster and leaves the system faster. Moreover, Trenbolone Acetate is better when it comes to maintaining stable blood levels, especially when athletes want to gain muscle mass and strength when following a dieting regimen. Furthermore, the human body finds it simpler to absorb a higher percentage of milligrams when injected with the acetate form rather than in the enanthate form.

A big majority of athletes and bodybuilders, especially those into elite sports and professional bodybuilding, prefer Trenbolone acetate over Trenbolone enanthate. This is because the enanthate version of Trenbolone doesn’t result in as much hardening of muscles as experienced with the acetate version. While the acetate version is known to promote cutting, the enanthate version is used for adding muscle size. Beginners to the world of anabolic compounds should opt for Trenbolone Acetate instead of Tren E as Tren acetate gets out of the system quickly. However, the enanthate version of Tren is rarely associated with night sweats, insomnia , and over-aggression and allows athletes to reap the optimum benefits of the potent steroids. Trenbolone enanthate is less likely to result in the dreaded Tren cough and involves less pinning but the use of this steroid involves more of patience as results can take time.

The fact that Trenbolone acetate is easily and more readily available puts it ahead of the enanthate version. In addition, this short ester compound is better than enanthate version when it comes to controlling and manipulating blood levels.

Trenbolone acetate : beast in a bottle !

When it comes time to choose which steroids to run the athlete is left with a host of choices likened to that of a fat kid picking out his first piece of candy; the choices are endless! But what’s best? That’s the question so many are often left with; what’s best for putting on size, what’s best for dieting, what’s best for strength; simply what is best? Then there are the questions of safety and side-effects and these can vary from person to person because like all things in life, various steroids can affect individuals quite differently. Putting that aside, assuming we are all the same for arguments sake, when it comes to the world of anabolic steroids we are left with one; there can only be one and that one is Trenbolone Acetate (Tren.) If you’re looking for a thorough profile of exactly how the drug works there are tons of places online you can go; and in our articles section and their steroid profiles for some very good specifications. Now we’ll touch on some of those here but our main concern with this overview is simple, explaining why tren is the king of kings.

Trenbolone is a 19 nor steroid, simply meaning the testosterone molecule has been changes in the 19th position and low-and-behold, you have Trenbolone. Sure, we could go into more specific detail but for most bodybuilders the specifics do not matter, only that it works and works well; again,

One of the most potent agents on the market, tren has been said to be 400% to even 500% more powerful than testosterone; that alone should make your mouth water! Further, unlike so many anabolic sterods, water retention with tren is in many cases non-existent with nearly all the gains being pure 100% muscle tissue. If you’re unfamiliar with Trenbolone, the above should be enough to have you chomping at the bit but it gets better, much better. When it comes to training, the name of the game is recovery; growth, in terms of size or strength and even in shaping in prepping for a contest, it is in recovery that progress is made. It is the training in-which ignites the fire but the recovery that molds the molten metal. It has been shown that tren has the ability to increase muscle-cell repair by nearly 100% greater than repair without tren. What does this mean in simple terms? It would mean your cells and fibers are repaired twice as fast. How accurate is this? Hard to say if it is pin-pointed to that degree exactly but it’s not far off. The reason for this recovery is tren’s ability to greatly increase the production of the hormone IGF-1

Trenbolone has been shown to greatly aide in fat loss . It’s no secret, bodybuilders love tren for contest prep, the hardness is brings is unlike any other; its potency allows them to hold to maximal strength as long as possible throughout their prep but the addition of fat loss benefits are simply an added bonus. Now couple this with a growth season, someone looking to add size and strength, this makes tren a perfect choice, even more so for the off-season bodybuilder. Think about it, it’s quite simple; Trenbolone aides in increasing size and strength, yes, you still have to eat to fuel those gains but now the gains of excess body fat becomes less of a concern; I’m sorry, if you’re not loving tren already you have a problem.

As mentioned, as said a million times, you have to feed your muscles, it’s that simple. What if there was a compound available that would allow you to gain more from the same amount of calories you’re eating now? What if there was a compound in-which enabled your body to absorb the nutrients more efficiently? For example, take two bodybuilders, BB “A” & BB “B” both eat a diet of 3,000kcl per day, both are genetically identical and eat identical diets. Both are using anabolic steroids; both are running testosterone and both decide to stack it with another compound. BB “A” chooses Trenbolone; he has now created a means for his body to make more use of each nutrient in his diet. BB “B” chooses Anadrol, a very potent steroid in its own right; he will make great gains too. However, BB “B” will soon realize much gained has been fluid, yes he gained lean tissue as well but he did not enjoy the boost of nutritional efficiency BB “A” enjoyed.

Yes, there are absolutely side effects to Trenbolone, here we are simply discussing the benefits.

  • No estrogen conversion
  • Perfect for hardening
  • Perfect levels of nutritional intake absorption
  • Massive strength gains
  • Incredible cell repair abilities
  • Aides in fat loss
  • Bonus (Not mentioned above) Trenbolone destroys cortisol the evilest of hormones that destroys muscle tissue and can bring a world of havoc on the hard dieter.

There is nothing wrong with Trenbolone Enanthate (Tren-e) or Trenbolone Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate (Tren-hex or Parabolin) nothing wrong at all and either of these is better than no tren at all. However, to begin, tren-a is easier to maintain stable blood levels with and this is very important, especially when dieting and yes even when trying to gain. Further, milligram for milligram, studies have shown the body has an easier time absorbing a higher percentage of milligrams when injected in the Acetate form rather than one of its cousins.

This should give you a good understanding of tren and how perfect of a compound it is when you’re choosing which anabolic steroid to run. In most cases tren should not be run by itself; tren will shut down your natural testosterone production and you’re best suited to stack tren with some form of testosterone. Also, an important note, Trenbolone is typically not suitable for beginners; Trenbolone as we can see is a very, very potent compound and the side effects in some cases can be brutal for some lifters. That is also another reason why Trenbolone Acetate is best in comparison to other forms of Trenbolone. Because it has the Acetate ester attached to it, making it very fast acting and giving it a very short half-life, if problems arise, the lifter can discontinue Trenbolone Acetate and have it cleared from his system very quickly.

Trenbolone and women

Although women are generally told to avoid using this drug, Trenbolone is being used more and more by women in controlled doses.

Trenbolone is one of the most popular drugs used by bodybuilders today and, when you look at the stats, it is not hard to see why. A very potent androgen with strong anabolic activity, Trenbolone is an extremely effective hardening and cutting agent. In fact, it is considered indispensable when it comes to pre contest preparation. However, it is also extremely valuable in the off-season as it creates a rapid build up of strength and muscle mass. In fact, the anabolic effect is often compared to Testosterone or Dianabol with one very important difference 1/2 it does not convert to estrogen. This is what truly sets it apart, as most mass building drugs readily aromatize, leading to many estrogen related problems (e.g. water retention gynecomastia).

Due to the lack of water retention, the gains when using this drug are more easily maintained on discontinuing its use. In addition to this, a very hard and defined appearance can be achieved. Also, since gynecomastia is not an issue, there should not be any need to add an anti-estrogen as long as Trenbolone is the only steroid being used. Due to the highly androgenic nature of this drug an increase in the burning of body fat is observed and a much tighter physique can be achieved without having to resort to extreme dieting.

Trenbolone is more potent than testosterone with an effect being gauged as three times as strong on a milligram for milligram basis. It is also four times as anabolic as Deca Durabolin and ten times as androgenic. This makes the majority of the weight gained on this drug lean, quality muscle. trenbolone also creates an increase in the levels of the hormone IGF-1 (insulin like Growth Factor-1) which is highly anabolic within muscle tissue. trenbolone has a stronger binding affinity to the androgen receptor than testosterone. This feature is a major contributing factor to the process of anabolism and fat loss. By promoting nitrogen retention and Protein synthesis within the muscle trenbolone allows the food you eat and the nutritional supplements you take to be used more effectively. It also reduces levels of the catabolic hormone cortisol. Trenbolone is also involved in the production of red blood cells and increases the rate of glycogen replenishment (both of which contribute not only to stamina but also to recovery from workouts)

A reduction in aerobic capacity is the most common complaint with Trenbolone. This is thought to be caused by bronchial dilation resulting from an increase in prostaglandin production. The condition known as “tren Cough” is often a complaint registered with users of the Acetate version (trenbolone is available in Acetate and Enanthate forms). Androgenic side effects may also be experienced which include oily skin, aggressive behavior, and acne and hair loss. For this reason women are usually advised to stay away from this drug.

It seems that although women are generally told to avoid using this drug, trenbolone is being used more and more by women in controlled doses. The fact that it adds primarily lean mass whilst reducing body fat is obviously a key factor in its attractiveness. When women were asked for their feedback on trenbolone use a variety of favored dosages came up. Anything from a very conservative 10mg every other day to a more adventurous 100mg/week split into two doses. Stacking Trenbolone with Testosterone Propionate was also something favored by those engaging in high level competition. Another use of Trenbolone involved taking it 3-4 days before a show in order to add hardness and definition to the physique.

It has to be said that side effects were experienced by all - usually increased hair growth and acne - and the severity of the side effects seemed to be worse in younger women. The theory expressed here being that ovarian function may be the reason for this, with a younger woman still having stronger ovarian function than an older women who may be entering peri-menopause. This is all speculation of course but seems like a plausible explanation in my opinion. Either way, if you are considering using trenbolone it is advised to use it on its own and at extremely low doses (such as the aforementioned 10mg every other day) in order to test your own unique sensitivity.

trenbolone is a potent androgen that is primarily used in cattle, so there is even less information at our disposal on this compound or its effects on the female endocrine system than any other drug. It is the one drug that seems to produce results as significant as the side effects that are associated with it. Women are generally advised to stay clear of Trenbolone considering the strong androgenic component which eradicates any possibility of running tTrenbolone without sides. The more seasoned female athlete will run it in the off season in order to reap the muscle building benefits of the drug whilst maintaining a relatively low body fat. On the other hand running it during contest preparation will preserve the newly added muscle mass while on a calorie restricted diet. The less daring athlete will run Trenbolone during the last few weeks of contest preparation or even limit their use to the week before the show - with a more frequent injection schedule.

Women who have experienced less favorable side effects on Trenbolone report experiencing tachycardia from a single pin, accompanied by profuse night sweats and insomnia bad enough to bail on the cycle. Others experience rapid hair growth with more frequent shaving (side effects that are far from unmanageable). Quite honestly, Trenbolone dosing is dependent on how much a woman is willing to deal with in terms of sides. There is no conservative dose for a first timer with trenbolone being far better suited for the educated, experienced and seasoned athlete who has paid her dues.

Training on steroid cycle. What Supplements to take and how To Eat and Diet.

Another very often asked question is:

"How should I eat and lift when on cycle"

The answer is that your diet and training should be about the same on or off with some minor tweaks. What I mean is that you should already have a good plan in place for diet and training…if not you shouldn’t be doing gear.

The only differences should be that you can work out longer because you will recover faster between sets, you will be able to lift heavier because of the increased strength, your workouts can be more intense from increased agression, and you can do it more often because of improved recovery. I can easily do 2 a day workouts on gear but my training is pretty similar to my training otherwise, I just condense the timeline and increase the volume.

Instead of working a muscle group once every six days you can now do it once every 3 days. If you were doing full body training 3 times a week you can now do it 6 times a week. Overtraining is a lot harder to do on gear but you need to make sure you are eating and sleeping enough that the gear can do it’s job.

This seems to really help bodybuilding type programs when you are doing a crap load of sets. It will also help a powerlifting program where you are doing heavy compound movements because you will recover better between sets and have more explosive power. Whether you’re doing West Side, German Volume Training, or Full Body, or whatever the important thing is that you really focus in the gym (even the best program sucks if you don’t put your best effort into it). Whatever you are doing it will work as long as you are doing it properly. Add weight, add reps, add sets and you get stronger because that is the body’s only choice. Whatever you do - do it balls to the wall and you will see results.

The only word of caution is to not drop below the 4 rep mark for sets that you can perform with good form. I have heard of many a guy on juice tear a biceps or fuck up a disk or something because he was being a hero and going for 1 rep PRs. There is a strong desire to do so because you are so much stronger you will want to know what your “geared PR” is but resist the urge, it’s masterbation for your ego. The only exception would be if you are a powerlifter or someone that is used to training in the very low rep range all the time (ie your ligaments have adapted to that type of training over a long period of time).

The problem is that your muscles are rapidly getting stronger because of the gear but your ligaments are not…this is especially true with drugs like Deca Durabolin, Trenbolone, and Winstrol that add a lot of strength very fast without giving the body time to adjust. Some drugs will also give a false sense of security because the joints feel great (well lubricated and loose) or actually help repair old injuries (Deca Durabolin is good for this because of it’s effect on cartilage which was covered earlier) but this doesn’t mean they are indistructable so use your judgement. You will make very good gains sticking to the 4-12 rep range…work with that.

Diet depends on your goals but basically:

  1. You can bulk steroids better/cleaner  - Your body can make use of more calories on cycle because your body is in a state of accelerated protein sysnthesis and your body on gear will make better use of calories you put in even if they are a little sloppy (nutrient partitioning will be improved such that more cals will go to your muscles).
  2. You can diet better - You can also maintain more muscle mass in a fasted state so dieting hard will not have the muscle wasting effect that it normally would.

For bulking or gaining you should be taking in at least 1,000 extra calories a day and upping your protein intake so that you are getting a MINIMUM of 1gm/lb of body weight (many pros recommend upwards of 2gm/lb), that’s a lot of protein but it is needed to really see results. I think eating clean is still a good idea but it is crutial to eat enough to grow. A lot of people who have trouble gaining don’t eat enough. If this is a problem without gear it will be a problem when on the gear. Figure out what you need and make sure you have an idea of what that actually entails in terms of a daily food breakdown. Plan out your meals and see what the total Protein, Fat, and Carb breakdown is. It is often much less than you think it is.

The flip side for dieting is that you can also get away with eating less and not losing muscle mass like you would naturally. This means cutting at least 500cals/d while still maintaining the minimum 1gm/lb of bodyweight for protein. Make sure you are getting healthy fats so that you can absorb all the necessary fat soluble vitamins and if you are restricting carbs make sure you have some in your system while training and right after so that you have energy to train and you are replenishing glycogen stores after.

The same general rules apply for eating - 5-7 small meals throughout the day. Don’t go hungry or go to sleep on an empty stomach. eat slow digesting foods like protein, healthy fats, and whole grains. don’t eat crap (fast food, fried stuff, processed grains, sweets) you can gain weight without this stuff (or very little of it if you are very lean naturally), the guys that say you need to eat like that on gear are usually either taking so much gear that they could eat scrap metal and gain or are big fat guys or both.

Typical “clean foods” are:

  • Lean Meats/seafood (chicken, lean beef, bison, venison, moose, horse, shrimp, scallops, tuna, salmon, or any other fish as they are all fairly healthy)…this should make up the bulk of your calories so that protein intake is high enough to get the daily minimum.
  • Eggs and Dairy (whole eggs, egg whites, milk, low fat cheeses, yogurt), for those that can tolerate dairy it is a good addition to get some extra protein. Remember that milk and yogurt have a fair amount of carbs so if restricting carbs it will need to be reduced or eliminated.
  • Vegetables (especially leafy green ones which are higher in fiber and anti-oxidants), if you are restricting carbs then tomatos, peppers, potatos, and yams should be reduced but otherwise veggies should all be fair game. veggies are fairly filling but low desity calorie wise so if you are having trouble eating enough while bulking it may help to restrict veggies a bit.
  • Healthy Fats (olive oil, avocado, nuts, natural peanut butter, macadamia nut oil, fish oil, milled flax seeds), the body needs healthy fats to absorb fat soluble vitamins and keep LDL/HDL ratio in check so make sure you are getting some.
  • Fruit (pure fruit juices and whole fruits like oranges, berries, bananas, pineapple, etc)…fruits are a great source of anti-oxidents and a good source of carbs. If you are restricting carbs then you need to avoid fruits and definitely avoid fruit juices.
  • Whole Grains (oatmeal, brown rice, wild rice, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat bread), obviously these need to be eliminated if cutting out carbs. Carbs are very anabolic food so they are definitely needed if bulking.
  • Beverages (water, geen tea, coffee, diet soda) these are about the only drinks that don’t contain a ton of sugar. The sugar used in drinks is often glucose fructose which is thought by many to be one of the root causes of the obesity/diabetes problem so it goes without saying it should be avoided.


The following supplements are ones that I think are good and work for me. Different ones may work for you so please take everything with a grain of salt.

  • Protein Powder - This is about the only way I can manage to get my daily protein requirement in because meat is expensive and it takes longer to digest so eating a few pounds of it a day is tough. obviously it is important to choose a good one so you aren’t just taking in a whole ton or sugar and crap. Biotest’s is good. It’s not the only one I like but it is what I drink most often. Things to look for is: fast and slow digesting proteins, good quality of protein, and fairly low in carbs so you aren’t just getting a glass of sugar.
  • Fish Oil - good for a lot of reasons: joints, lipids (LDL/HDL ratio), cardiovasclar health, reduces inflamation, immune function, etc…Omega-3’s are very good for you and fish oil is very high in it.
  • Creatine - this is one of the most popular of all time supplements and works well. It’s now considered safe to take year round just make sure you drink lots of water with it.
  • BCAAs - I have finally jumped on the BCAA band wagon. I find that I perform a lot better in the gym and on the field with them (I usually take about 10 before training and find my energy level is much better). If it is sparing muscle in the process then that’s great but the number one thing for me is that my workouts are better on it.

Trenbolone Side Effects: Night Sweats and Reduced Cardio Capacity

Q: “My trenbolone cycle has greatly reduced by cardio capacity, and the night sweats are extreme. Yet two friends are doing the exact same cycle as me with no issues at all. Is this always going to happen to me with trenbolone? Even with these problems, the results are worth it.”

A: Both reduced cardio and night sweats are somewhat common complaints with trenbolone users, though in the majority of cases neither occurs. The cardiovascular capacity problem is in at least some cases related to elevated hematocrit. It’s worth checking. At the highest level of competitive cycling, it’s well known that athletes have sought high hematocrit levels. With high hematocrit, they’ve been able to sustain increased power output. Or in other words, their cardio performance was better. However, this isn’t a general rule. Along with higher oxygen carrying capacity, along with higher hematocrit comes higher blood viscosity, or greater blood thickness. Even where hematocrit is remaining within the normal range, one study found that aerobic capacity of other athletes may be superior with midrange or even low-midrange hematocrit than with high-normal values. It’s possible for hematocrit to go substantially above normal during an anabolic steroid cycle. Since you are seeing an adverse side effect, I’d check hematocrit level. If it is at about 53 or higher, I’d discontinue anabolic steroid use for now. If hematocrit is in the normal range, then there’s no known answer for the reduced cardio ability. Some have speculated that lung irritation might be the cause. I don’t know of medical evidence, but don’t rule out that there could be truth to it. To deal with the cardio issue, some trenbolone users limit their dose to for example 50 mg/day rather than 75 or 100 mg/day. Trenbolone is so effective per milligram that even 50 mg/day provides an excellent effect as part of a steroid stack. As for night sweats, I know of no convincing explanation for this problem. It seems to strike randomly. Commonly, for the same individual it will occur in some cycles but not others. There seems no solution but getting the bedroom as cool as possible and using beach towels to absorb the sweat. At least the night sweats may be helping to burn off fat.

Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals

Clomiphene citrate is an anti-estrogenic drug that is prescribed to women to treat anovulatory infertility (inability to ovulate). In clinical medicine it is specifically referred to as a nonsteroidal ovulatory stimulant.

The drug works by interacting with estrogen receptors, often in an antagonistic manner, in various tissues of the body including the hypothalamus, pituitary, ovary, endometrium, vagina, and cervix. One main focus is that the drug will oppose the negative feedback of estrogens on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, enhancing the release of gonadotropins (LH and FSH). This surge in gonadotropins may cause egg release (follicular rupture), ideally leading to conception.

Clomiphene citrate is chemically a synthetic estrogen with both agoniist/antagonist properties, and in this regard is very similar in structure and action to Nolvadex®. It is believed that both the estrogenic and anti-estrogenic properties of clomiphene citrate play a role in its ability to support femal,e fertility. In men, clomiphene citrate also acts as a partial antiestrogen, and may be used to counter some of the side effects of aromatizable steroid use including gynecomastia and increased water retention.

As an anti-estrogenic drug, clomiphene citrate may also produce an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone, and luteinizing hormone levels, which can elevate testosterone production. This effect is especially beneficial at the conclusion of a steroid cycle, when endogenous testosterone levels are depressed. Here, clomiphene citrate is most often applied in combination with HCG and tamoxifen, in an effort to restore endogenous testosterone production more quickly. If testosterone levels are not brought back to normal in a short period of time, a significant loss in size and strength may occur.

This is due to the fact that without testosterone (or other anabolic/androgenic steroids) to impart an ongoing anabolic message, the catabolic hormone cortisol becomes the dominant force affecting muscle protein synthesis. Often referred to as the post-steroid crash, when not corrected this state of imbalance in the endocrine system can quickly reduce muscle mass levels, diminishing the long-term return on anabolic/androgenic steroid therapy.

Note that the triphenylethylene compounds (toremifene citrate, tamoxifen citrate, clomiphene citrate) tend to be somewhat intrinsically estrogenic in the liver. This means that while they can block estrogenic activity in some areas of the body, they can actually act as estrogens in this other key area.

Estrogenic action in the liver is important in the regulation of serum cholesterol (it tends to support HDL synthesis and LDL reductions). Since steroid-using bodybuilders are already dealing with the negative cardiovascular effects of these drugs, compounding the issue with aromatase inhibitors (which will lower total serum estrogen levels) may not always be the best option.

Using a drug that blocks gynecomastia, for example, while at the same time supporting improved cholesterol values, might be much more ideal.

How Supplied:

Clomiphene citrate is most commonly supplied in tablets of 50 mg.

Structural Characteristics:

Clomiphene citrate is classified as a selective estrogen receptor modulator, with both agonist and antagonist properties. It has the chemical designation 2-[4-(2 chloro1, 2- diphenylvinyl) phenoxy] triethylamine dihydrogen citrate.

Some patients using clomiphene citrate notice blurring or other visual disturbances such as spots or flashes. These symptoms occur more frequently at higher doses or longer durations of therapy, and often disappear within a few days or weeks of use. Prolonged visual disturbances have been reported after the discontinuation of clomiphene citrate therapy, however, and in some cases may be irreversible. Those taking clomiphene citrate should be warned that these symptoms might make activities like driving a car or operating heavy machinery more hazardous than usual.While the exact cause of these visual symptoms is not yet understood, it is advisable to
discontinue treatment and have a thorough medical/opthalmological examination should they occur.

Side Effects:

Clomiphene citrate appears to be well tolerated, with a low incidence of significant side effects. Common adverse reactions during clinical trails included ovarian enlargement (13.6%), vasomotor flushes (10.4%), abdominal discomfort (5.5%), nausea/vomiting (2.2%), breast discomfort (2.1 %), visual symptoms (1.50/0), headache (1.30/0), and abnormal uterine bleeding (1.30/0).

Data also suggests that the prolonged use of clomiphene citrate may increase the chance of ovarian tumor. Clomiphene citrate is occasionally associated with a serious and potentially life threatening side effect called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Early warning
signs of OHSS include abdominal pain and distention, nausea, diarrhea, and weight gain.

Clomiphene citrate is FDA approved for the treatment of women with ovulatory dysfunction preventing pregnancy.

The recommended dosage is 50 mg daily for 5 days, which is initiated approximately 5 days into the menstrual cycle. If ovulation does not occur, follow up cycles may use a dosage of 100 mg per day for 5 days.

Many clinicians recommend a limit of 6 courses of therapy. When used by men (off-label) to mitigate the estrogenic side effects of anabolic/androgenic steroid use, a daily dosage of 50-100 mg (1-2 tablets) is usually administered while any offending steroids are taken.

Note, however, that tamoxifen is usually given preference over clomiphene citrate for this purpose. More commonly, clomiphene citrate is used by men at a dosage of 50-100 mg per day for 30 days at the conclusion of a steroid cycle, in an effort to bring natural testosterone production back to normal levels. Here, it is usually deemed most appropriate to use as part of a multi-component post-cycle recovery program. Female athletes occasionally use clomiphene citrate for the reduction of estrogenicity near the time of a bodybuilding contest. In some instances this may aid in increasing fat loss and muscularity, particularly in female trouble areas such as the hips and thighs. The drug, however, often produces very troubling side effects in pre menopausal women, and is likewise not in very high demand among this group.

Bodybuilding and Steroids

Lance Armstrong’s public castigation prior to having his Tour de France titles stripped, and graver punishment of confessing to a disapproving Oprah Winfrey of his doping days and winning ways, revealed one of his self-justifications. He researched the ethics of violating doping regulations, and decided after consulting a dictionary that he was not cheating, as he was not gaining any advantage over his competitors.

Resorting to testosterone, EPO, other drugs as well as blood doping was a perceived need for Armstrong, who said, “I viewed it as a level playing field”1… the everyone else is doing it defense that stopped working for most of us in kindergarten.

Bodybuilding (other than drug-tested organizations) suffers from the same “level playing field” mentality as cycling, without the apparently ineffective barrier of rules regarding performance-enhancing drug use. At the level of the Mr. Olympia, the perfect combination of genetics, training, diet and drugs is required to excel. The number of contestants has escalated (some of the early Mr. Olympia contests had a single competitor, while today over 30 qualify and approximately 20 compete onstage), and the margin between winning and fading in the ranks narrows every year. It is a given that the vast majority of competitors use anabolic steroids dosed far into the supraphysiologic range (generally between 2,000 to 5,000 mg total androgen intake weekly). I would contend that the use of anabolic steroids is universal in this population, but acknowledge the slim (naive) possibility that a truly gifted individual might reach these heights unaided.

By the time a bodybuilder acquires his pro card, he has already committed years of training, financial cost and strained relationships. Entering the pro arena, he arrives at a new tier of competition— much like NFL rookies who excelled in college, only to falter at the pro level. The rewards (e.g., fame, prize money, guest posing, endorsements and business opportunities) are tremendous; the level of risk these men accept encourages them to experiment with potentially life-threatening concentrations of potent drugs and hormones, extreme physical stress and adverse conditions. In the quest to find an advantage, many are turning to unproven experimental drugs and biologics, even surgeries. Every time a new standard for definition or size is set, the bar is raised for all competitors. There are rumors of gene therapy or stem cell implants in elite athletes, making it possible that bodybuilders are also submitting to extremely risky and unethical procedures. This is the irresistible “cookie jar” that has arisen from advances in cellular, genomic and metabolomic science.

There are certain anabolic steroids/hormones that are well established in bodybuilding: insulin, growth hormone and IGF-1 are familiar to many. At the professional level, these drugs have become nearly as ubiquitous as anabolic steroids. Some might suggest the beta-2 adrenergic drug Clenbuterol as another example, but at the doses used in humans, it fails to promote anabolism reliably over the long term. Clenbuterol, and same-class drugs, are used to promote fat loss

Insulin is best known as a glucose (sugar) partitioning hormone secreted from the pancreas in response to a meal, prescribed to treat type 1 diabetes. However, in addition to driving glucose into most tissue (e.g., skeletal muscle), it also activates the uptake of amino acids and stops the breakdown of cellular protein. Insulin also promotes the storage of fatty acids as triglycerides in fat cells. In terms of whole-body growth, insulin is a more potent anabolic than testosterone. Bodybuilders have learned to time insulin injections in conjunction with training and some meals to drive nutrients into recently worked muscle, resulting in greater lean mass gains. The downside is that a miscalculation when preparing an injection or reconstituting a vial could lead to a lethal (life-threatening or life-ending) event. If insulin is overdosed, it can drive circulating glucose (blood sugar) so low that the brain is starved. Unless corrected very rapidly, it can lead to death. Insulin can also increase appetite and resistance to fat loss. It is unclear as to whether insulin or growth hormone first gained widespread use among mass-seeking bodybuilders; combined, they have increased the size and mass of the contestants noticeably. Human growth hormone (HGH) induces a state of insulin resistance which insulin treatments overcome; insulin increases fat storage, which HGH combats.

Human growth hormone was rarely used prior to the late 1980s due to cost and scarcity. Prior to the advent of recombinant technology, HGH was sourced from pituitary extracts of cadavers (the brains of dead people). There are rumors of bodybuilders in the late 1970s or early 1980s using GH derived from the pituitary of rhesus monkeys, but these are not verified by any credible source. HGH has both anabolic and lipolytic (fat releasing) effects, making it very appealing to bodybuilders; the mass gains do not involve the contractile proteins in muscle.3 Thus, increases in size are not associated with increases in strength. HGH use may increase the IGF-1 response to exercise in muscle, but that will be discussed later.4

The hormone also aids in tissue repair, possibly accelerating recovery from tendon or ligament strains. Dosing is an issue with this hormone, just as it is with insulin. Unlike insulin, there does not appear to be an acute toxicity (e.g., hypoglycemia). However, chronic (long term) use of excessive doses of HGH can result in life-shortening conditions (e.g., cardiomegaly, type 2 diabetes, tumor growth) and permanent disfigurement (e.g., overgrowth of facial, hand and foot bones). Over time, bodybuilders have learned to lessen HGH dosing and add the related hormone, IGF-1. The lipolytic (fat reducing) effect of HGH is accomplished at a low dose, whereas the anabolic (net) effect requires concentrations approximately three times greater than physiologic in young men; bringing with the mass gains several adverse effects.

IGF-1 is produced primarily in the liver and skeletal muscle. It is considered a secondary messenger of GH, as it carries out some of the GH-related effects. However, IGF-1 has unique effects and is more specific to anabolic effects in muscle. IGF-1 is produced locally by exercised muscle, and has a role in increasing contractile protein and tendon strength, increasing the hypertrophic response to weight training. Combined use of HGH and IGF-1 allows bodybuilders to experience the benefits of both hormones to a greater degree than relying upon injected hGH and the systemic (liver) production of IGF-1.

If one looks at the bodybuilders of the 1990s and early 2000s, one frequently sees facial deformities, elongated hands and feet and “GH belly” on the larger contestants. Today’s competitors achieve equal or greater size with a lower incidence of these deformities.

However, over time (years), even replacement therapy can cause both physical and metabolic signs associated with acromegaly (GH excess). The point may be moot if the trend of shorter life spans among professional bodybuilders continues.

Other growth factors exist, though are not in use clinically— insulin, HGH and IGF-1 all have established clinical use in medicine. Tissue growth factors are being studied in research labs for use in treating human conditions, or to better understand cellular and molecular processes. Though access to material that other bodybuilders may not have is very appealing to competitive individuals, the risks associated with self-experimentation are immense. These materials often have not been evaluated relative to toxicity, or effectiveness in humans. Further, there are often negative side effects that are unanticipated that might lead to organ damage, organ failure, or death. Even in carefully controlled clinical trials performed by pharmaceutical companies, there are rare cases of severe harm or death. Certain of these growth factors are fairly well understood, and appear to be capable of being used effectively with a reasonable expectation of short-to intermediate-term safety. Long-term safety is a complete crapshoot with absolutely no available data to formulate a guess, especially at the doses being used by these men in conjunction with numerous other drugs.

IGF growth factors are a family of protein hormones that regulate tissue growth and repair. In skeletal muscle, they are prominently involved with exercise-induced hypertrophy and satellite cell recruitment. Among the muscle-derived IGFs are: IGF-IEa, IGF-IEb or IGF-IEc (also known as mechano growth factor, MGF) and IGF-II. These growth factors act locally; circulating IGF-1 (blood concentrations) is often unchanged during this time. MGF acts locally, and promotes muscle growth in ways unique from IGF-1, including activating satellite cells. It would seem that MGF injections would work best administered the day a muscle group is trained, separated from the workout by a few hours. MGF has been detected in black-market products, and it is being explored for treating aging-related muscle loss, supporting the speculation that it may be effective (and in use) as an anabolic agent in bodybuilding.

Shortly after scientists demonstrated the potential to introduce genes into a living host, the concept of “gene doping” was born. As opposed to traditional doping, where hormones are injected into the body at concentrations much higher than normally present, gene doping is a method where strands of DNA are introduced that generate the same hormones at supraphysiologic concentration within the body. It is unnatural because it is not the “blueprint” the person was born with, though it could be argued as “natural” as the resulting hormone is produced entirely within the body and is not injected or swallowed. The concern of anti-doping agencies is that as the hormone is produced in the body, there would be no means of proving that it was not natural. Do not be surprised if we begin to see entire teams of athletes at the Olympics that have mutations or gene copies that are mathematically improbable.

For the bodybuilder, imagine the possibilities- after being infused with tissue implants of satellite cells, Leydig cells, islet cells, brown fat, etc. Then the new genes are activated, issuing concentrations of growth factors, betaadrenergic neurotransmitters, HGH, IGF-1, etc. The result would be nearly limitless growth. As utopian as that sounds, it is the cheese in the trap. Gene transfer is not perfected, and even in the best-case scenario, these growth factors are involved with many disease processes as well (i.e., cancer, enlarged heart, autoimmune diseases).

An area that is anabolic in that it increases muscle size, and is disappointingly prevalent in bodybuilding, is the use of site-enhancing oils such as synthol. The practice of injecting oils into tissue to increase size or (supposedly) cosmetic appeal is decades old. One of the original oils was paraffin oil, once used to augment breast size. Paraffin oil, and later other blended oils, have been used by bodybuilders to increase the size of lagging body parts or to exaggerate dominant muscle groups. Aficionados of bodybuilding are familiar with unsightly lumps in deltoids, biceps, gastrocnemius and other sites. What is not appreciated by those who depend upon these oils is that the long-term effect is destruction of the very muscle being “inflated.” Several cases are present in the medical literature of men who have experienced chronic, severe pain and loss of strength. The damage, detected by MRI or ultrasound, shows pockets of oil, inflamed and scarred muscle. The reported cases resulted in surgical removal of sections of the involved muscle, and segments removed in the surgeries reported were roughly five by two by two inches.

There are other agents with anabolic effects capable of increasing muscle size, such as myostatin inhibitors and specific prostaglandins. It is clear that an ever-expanding cocktail of growth promoters, cellular implants, gene transfer and other techniques are being explored in the eternal quest for greater size/strength. Greater complexity and more numerous concurrent manipulations nearly guarantees foreboding consequences.

While the cavalier may boast it is survival of the fittest, or what does not kill you makes you stronger, the reality is that bodybuilding will become extinct as a consequence of natural selection. Though it is advanced scientific knowledge that is providing the avenues for growth, it is not wisdom guiding the practice as we now see it.

The Trenbolone Experience

Trenbolone is a classified schedule III drug in the United States; which means that it is illegal. It is from the 19-nor family of anabolic steroids just as deca is. The 19-nor stands for the fact that the testosterone molecule was changed at the 19th position to make it into the new and more potent compound. It was originally an anabolic androgic steroid developed and used by veterinarians on livestock to increase muscle growth and appetite and later would make its way to the chemical athlete’s world. The farmers clearly knew that these anabolics were the key to bigger and better breeds, allowing for faster income as well. On the average farmers sell cattle that have less than 28% EBF, they will not exhibit enough finish to reach a USDA quality grade of low choice. The majority of cattle need to have at least 28.5-29.5% EBF in order to grade to their genetic potential.

Therefore, all these factors need to be taken into consideration when choosing an effective implant (Trennobolone acetate) strategy which include feed costs, animal costs, quality grade, genetics, economic advantages of weight (live & carcass), production goals, and carcass goals. There are trade-offs to all the above and implants can help you achieve your goals and benefit you economically in all circumstances.

The recent study noted that when taking Trenbolone with estradiol, the weight gain was more proficient. Of course bodybuilders don’t want to take estradiol, but taking tesostosterone will allow for aromatization which in turn will increase the body’s estradiol production leading to more muscle gain. This one of the reasons why the Test-Tren stack is so popular besides the fact that testosterone helps the impaired libido from Trenbolone.

In many people’s eyes, Trenbolone is pound for pound the strongest compound for pure gains and stacks well with anything. Although some may argue that it’s a “No No”, while on Nanodrolone Decanoate aka Deca. However I have ran both successfully with no more or less problems than running them separate.

Trenbolone significantly increases nutrient efficiency along mineral/vitamin absorption. Feed efficiency is the measurement of how much of an animal diet is converted into meat, and the more consumption of food it takes to finalize this meat, the lower the value. On the other hand, the less food consumed by the animal to finalize the meat; the higher the value/efficiency.

Trenbolone is one of the few anabolic androgenic steroids, that can lead to fat loss without change in diet, and it also has scholarly literature stating so. This makes it perfect on a recomp as you will lose all fat needed but pack on dense muscle at the same time, don’t get me wrong; you can still use it for other goals including bulking and cutting.

Like most all anabolic androgenic steroids the Trenbolone hormone greatly promotes nitrogen retention in the muscles, increases red blood cell count and dramatically reduces and blocks glucocorticoid steroids aka the stress hormone cortisol; this hormone destroys muscle and increases fat storing hormones. This also means that you can do all the cardio you need to lose fat without having to worry about losing your muscle gains. Dieting can also place major stress on the mind and body leading to more cortisol, but Tren can help cease the cortisol release. Tren sounds ideal on a cut if you ask me. Increased nitrogen retention also means increased nutrient deliver to the muscles allowing for more glycogen retention. More glycogen retention leads to better workouts and a fuller look.

As is with nearly all anabolic androgenic steroids the Trenbolone hormone can greatly promote cell repair and regeneration, which will speed up the healing process in the body. The main reason why you experience growth on anabolics is because your recovery times goes up allowing you to become faster stronger. The more weight with frequency you can lift, the more and faster you will grow. One of the reasons why Tren is so good at increasing recovery time is the fact that it significantly increases the body’s natural production of the potent anabolic hormone IGF-1. Tren also causes muscle satellite cells to be more responsive to IGF-1 and other growth factors. The amount of DNA per muscle cell will also experience a significant increase. For these reasons adding Igf-lr3 into a tren cycle is a no brainer.

Trenbolone severely binds to the androgen receptors therefore increasing growth of muscle mass and melting fat away. This is important, because the stronger a steroid binds to the androgen receptor the better that steroid works at activating androgen receptor’s dependant mechanisms of muscle growth. There is also strong supporting evidence that androgens which bind very firmly to the androgen receptor also help in shedding fat. The androgen receptors are like locks and the androgens are like different keys. Some keys open the locks much better than others. This is does not mean that AR-binding is the only way that steroids work. There are anabolics that barely have any considerable binding to the AR and yet display great capability to build muscle and strength. Trenbolone is also a highly androgenic hormone, when compared with testosterone; its 5 times more androgenic than it.

Testosterone measures at 100 while Trenbolone measures at 500. Potent androgenic anabolics offer dry gains which is great for limiting water retention but don’t think that Tren is water retention free; as it is derived from a progesterone after all. Again as stated due to its great feed efficiency properties, it has potent nutrient partritioning effects. This means more glycogen for the muscle, and less glucose in the adipose tissues. If the compound has higher androgen binding, it will cause the androgen receptors within the fat cells to burn fat more efficiently. This could be alsoe from the rise in leptin with the simulatenous rise in androgens. There is evidence that shows when leptin rises while androgens rise, the body will burn fat at a faster rate to try to lower leptin. One thing to remember with Trenbolone is that it does lower thyroid hormones. This is why you will notice lets of bodybuilders use T3 or T4 while on cycle.

Other perks of Tren are that it does not aromatize into estrogen/estradiol nor does it convert to 5a reductase hormone also known as DHT. The lack of conversions prevents early aggravation of the prostate, estradiol based gynecomastia but that does not mean its gyno free which we will dive into further later.

There are a couple of forms that Trenbolone can be administered in order to gain the benefits of added muscle mass and strength.The two most common forms of Trenbolone are Trenbolone Acetate and Trenobolone Ethanate. The way these esters work is that the plasma lipases cleave its ester group once it reaches the bloodstream leaving free trenbolone. Trenbolone and 17epi-trenbolone are both excreted through urine as conjugates that can be hydrolyzed with beta-glucuronidase. This would imply that trenbolone leaves the body as beta-glucuronides or as sulfates. Clearly the preffered form of Trenbolone is the acetate form as it only has a half of life 3 days meaning that it leaves the body fastest yet mg per mg it’s the strongest. Meaning you need less of it to get the intended benefits yet if side effects become too apparent, it would not take long for the sides to calm down after ceasing use. Most people can be fine after 24 hours of ceasing use, but of course it also depends on dose and duration. Any form of Trenbolone usually needs to be taken every other day to keep plasma blood levels concentrated.

As for dosing Tren Acetate, I recommend to start of with 60-90mg eod and see how it treats you. Honestly there is no point in exceeding 100mgs, you will notice that vets will use 120mgs every other day but its not needed to achieve those massive gains, only a slight difference. 8-12 weeks should be enough to gain mass and strength, Tren is rather toxic, for that reason I don’t recommend that one cycle it for longer periods of time. You can run Trenbolone Ethanate 200mg twice a week.

High Reps for Growth. Gaining Muscle With High Reps vs Low reps

Most bodybuilders will tell you that you can’t get big without getting strong. If you’ve been at this sport for any length of time„ you’ve probably already learned that to get stronger and make your muscles grow, you need to lift within a rep range of 6-10. Most training articles advise you to stick with these low-rep parameters.

I’m here to tell you that the low-rep system is only second best - at least as far as leg training is concerned. You may already be using high-rep sets to train your calves, which is an endurance muscle group that actually receives a stimulus each time you take a step. Such endurance muscles respond will to high-rep training because you’re training them in a way that they were meant to be trained.

The fact is, you can train legs very heavy at low-rep ranges and make considerable progress. I did for a long time during my days as an amateur. When I was 19, I put six wheels on each side of the squat bar. In what must have been a twist of fate, I suffered an injury that changed the way I trained legs - in the long run, for the better.

One day while squatting with a relatively light weight (315 pounds), I turned just slightly to talk to someone with the bar across my shoulders; the next thing I knew, I was on my back. I felt a jolt - a pinched nerve. Instinctively, I re-racked the weight before falling to the floor, but I was unable to get up for about two hours. Though the injury was never diagnosed, it left a permanent mark: I could no longer squat in the manner I was used to without severe repercussions.

Though squatting had been my bread-and-butter leg exercise, I was forced to find an alternative that was equally effective. The movement I chose was the leg press.

The leg press may not be quite as effective as the squat in terms of overall quad development, but I can’t argue with he results I’ve experienced from using it. More important the movement itself was how I combined dong the exercise with a new training style - which brings me back to my injury.

The simple answer to my injury was to use high reps in my leg training - much higher than most people traditionally use for muscle building. No longer did I do sets of 4 to 10 reps, but rather, I pushed through 20 reps! Even though my ego occasionally craved super heavy weights, I actually found that I was growing at a far faster rate on higher reps — so much so that legs are now my number-one bodypart.

While some people might cut the weight stack in half in order to complete twice the reps, I pushed myself — enduring both physical and mental torture — to get my weights high too. How high? Turn the page if you can blow out 20 reps with 1,350 pounds. That type of training will definitely breathe fire into your quads.

How can you achieve your own heavy-weight, high-rep sets? First, attend to the physical component by warming up. With leg extensions, for instance, warm up by doing 15 reps with about 50 pounds (or whatever your warm-up weight is) for five sets. Then move on to the leg press. Start off with a couple of plates on each side of the machine for 20 reps, and add another plate on each side for every set (about five to seven total) thereafter. If you can do 15 reps with a weight, then you can do 20, but it’s best to have a spotter there to keep you moving. Add just a little more weight every workout while keeping the reps high.

Getting the muscles to do the work is hard enough, but the most difficult aspect is actually mental: the attitude that it takes to get those last few reps. That’s a champion’s greatest skill, not devising some special combination of movements but perfecting mental toughness. A champion knows what he wants, knows what he needs to do and what it takes to get it. He wants it bad enough to work through the pain.

Work on your mental approach. Keep at it. Train with others who understand its importance. A good training partner will keep you focused when you want to quit.

One last point on the leg press: I often see people doing the movement with their legs way out on the platform or alternating foot positions (ditto for calf exercises). I prefer to keep my feet shoulder-width apart, pointing directly forward or just slightly outward. I don’t think legs ware meant to do exercises with an exaggerated stance. Use a screwy stance while moving a ton of weight, and you’re just begging for an injury.

There you have it: a leg-training formula that abandons the traditional school of thought on using heavy weights and low reps to build muscle. I discovered the routine quite literally by accident — but you don’t need to, because here it is.

Default How to Steroid Injections

When people are considering doing their first cycle, proper anabolic steroid injection technique is usually the last thing they consider. Usually, people have a goal, and then research various drugs and cycles which they think will help them achieve that goal. Usually it´s not until someone has a bunch of vials sitting in front of them, and a bag of needles and syringes, that they start thinking about how they´re actually going to get the oil out of the bottle and into their body! For many people, this is where the idea of anabolic steroid injections becomes petrifying. In many cases, the individual becomes so scared of performing the necessary administration, he’ll forgo his entire plan. It is here where he’ll give up on anabolic steroids altogether or opt for oral only cycles; in either case, he is severely shortchanging himself.

Steroid Injections – Phase 1:

First, you´ll need to draw the anabolic steroid out of the vial, with a syringe. The most common size for injecting anabolic steroids is a 23-25ga. X 1-1.5” needle. This size will work for all water based and oil based injectable anabolic steroids. The first thing you need to do is make sure you are using a clean, unused needle. Next, make sure the top of the vial is clean, and swab it with an alcohol pad.

In-order to draw the liquid out of the vial, you´ll first want to pull some air into the syringe, usually the same amount as you will be drawing in for your injection if not a little more. Next, you want to hold the vial upside down and inject the air into the vial. This will increase pressure inside the vial and allow the liquid to be drawn into the syringe more easily. Once you´ve done this, and while you´re still holding the vial upside down, you need to make sure the tip of the needle is below the level of the liquid, begin to slowly pull back on the plunger and drawl the desired amount of liquid into the syringe.

From here, you have the option of replacing the needle that breached the rubber stopper of the vial with a fresh needle. This is because even one pass through the rubber of a vial will blunt the tip of a needle; even if this is not visible to the naked eye, it´s still got the potential to cause additional discomfort when you inject. In many cases, it’s not uncommon for the individual to use a large drawl needle for all his steroid injections; drawl needles are often 20ga-22ga in size and will make the entire process a lot smoother.

Steroid Injections – Phase 2:

Once your solution is inside the syringe, choose the area you wish to inject and clean it with a new and never before used alcohol swab. As the area is now disinfected, directly into the center of the desired injected area simply force the needle in, it won’t take much and prepare to inject. With the needle all the way in, before you inject the solution, draw back the plunger of the syringe few tenths; if any blood comes into the syringe you will need to remove it immediately and find a new spot to inject. You very well may only need to move over an inch or so or you can find a new spot and start the procedure again. Once you have found a suitable area, and this will get much easier with time, simply inject the solution, but you’re not quite done yet.

Steroid Injections – Phase 3:

With all of your anabolic steroid injections, once the solution is completely administered leave the needle in for a good 15 or so seconds and allow the anabolic steroid to settle. At this point, remove the needle and immediately place a clean, never before used cotton ball on the injected site and apply pressure and hold for approximately 20-30 seconds. At this point, you’ll remove the cotton ball and you very well may find blood on it; don’t freak out; remember, you’ve just pierced your skin. Throw the cotton ball away, and then with a little pressure massage the injected area; this will help with any potential soreness; it’s not an absolutely necessity but it can help.

Where to Perform Steroid Injections:

Anabolic steroid injections are first and foremost meant for your muscle tissue; intramuscular and nowhere else. We do not perform steroid injections intravenously or subcutaneously; such practices are very dangerous, and subcutaneous is a great way to get an abscess. In any case, on the human body you have 36 specific spots in-which you can perform all your anabolic steroid injections; while there are 36, most will only need a few.

Steroid Injections – No Fear:

With so many places to perform anabolic steroid injections, it will be easy to find a spot you are comfortable with and can hold a fair amount of confidence; once you get through an injection or two you’ll quickly realize how simple the process is. Of course, there is something you need to understand that has for years escaped many on anabolic steroid related message boards; anabolic steroid injections are not supposed to hurt. Granted, the use of Testosterone Suspension and a few other anabolic steroid may leave you sore, but overall anabolic steroid injections should not hurt. If your injected area is in pain post-injection, more than likely your product is not of a high quality nature; this we can guarantee if you’ve followed all the steps from above.

Anabolic steroid injections must be administered intramuscularly; in simple terms this means we inject directly into a specific muscle in the body. Generally speaking we have 9 various muscle groups to choose from and within each muscle group we possess many suitable injection points. The following groups of muscles are all adequate points of administration and each one provides the following number of injection sites in the particular muscle:

Glutes: 1 site
Deltoids: 3 sites
Biceps: 2 sites
Triceps: 3 sites
Lats: 1 site
Pectorals: 3 sites
Quadriceps: 2 sites
Traps: 1 site
Calves: 2 sites

With the list of injectable sites provided above we are provided with 17 various sites to perform anabolic steroid injections and since we have two of every muscle group listed the number of adequate sites doubles to 34. For example, you have 3 safe injectable points in the deltoid muscle, meaning each deltoid has 3 points of injection giving you a total of 6 points to choose from regarding deltoids alone.

Specific Point of each Muscle:

With numerous injections sites to choose from, within each one there is a specific area of the muscle at hand that should be injected; do not arbitrarily inject into the muscle but have a set point in mind. The following should give you a good idea:

  • Glutes: the upper and outer portion of the muscle. You should inject approximately two inches below the lower back and a few inches to the left for your left glute and a few inches to the right for your right glute. Never should you administer steroid injections into the meat of your glute muscle as is commonly seen on TV; remember TV is not real life. Injecting into the meat of the muscle and you risk hitting the sciatic nerve.
  • Deltoids: anterior (front) deltoid head, lateral (side) deltoid head and posterior (rear) deltoid head. All three points are suitable; most will find the lateral deltoid muscle to be the most comfortable of the three. Simple inject into the center of the muscle.
  • Biceps: inner or outer bicep heads; either point is suitable. Inject directly in the center of each point.
  • Lats: One point on each lat to choose from; inject into the center of the outer edge of the muscle.Triceps: outer (horseshoe) tricep head, lower rear tricep head and middle rear tricep head. Inject into the center of each point of the muscle.
  • Pectorals: the upper inside portion of the pectoral, the middle inside portion of the pectoral or the outer lower portion of the pectoral. All three provide adequate points; the latter will prove to be a little more uncomfortable for some.
  • Quadriceps: the outer head (sweep) or inner head (tear-drop) are both suitable although the sweep will prove to be far more comfortable. For the tear-drop inject directly into the center, for the sweep inject approximately half-way between your hip and knee slightly on the outside of the muscle.
  • Traps: one spot, simply directly into the middle of the muscle.
  • Calves: the inner or outer head is fine, simple inject into the center of either head. Most will find this injection site to be very uncomfortable and should only be used if absolutely necessary.

With the numerous points we have to choose from for our anabolic steroid injections most will find the glutes and lateral (side) deltoid head to be the most comfortable and convenient points of administration. Injection sites such as calves and traps are highly warned against; although in terms of adequate injection sites they are fine, they can produce a fair amount of pain in the individual. No matter where you choose to inject always practice sanitary methods; do not reuse needles or syringes, clean the area thoroughly before injection and always sterilize with alcohol beforehand.

Muscle Growth & Development with Trenbolone Acetate

Trenbolone acetate  without doubt the most powerful injectable used to grow muscle mass. His features are not always well understood.

Trenbolone Acetate is very similar to the popular Nandrolone, they are both 19-nor steroids, meaning testesrerone molecule is replaced by 19-position, giving us a new compound. Unlike nandrolone, Trenbolone Acetate is an excellent preparation for mass and hardening the majority of gains being muscle fiber, with minimal water retention. It has an unbelievable anabolic (muscle building) performance level of the 500th When you compare that with testesterone, which is a powerful mass builder, and has an anabolic score of 100 you can imagine the potential of trenbolone. What makes Trenbolone Acetate so anabolic? Trenbolone Acetate greatly increases the level of the extremely anabolic hormone IGF-1 hormone levels of muscle tissue, it also increases muscle satellite cells (cells that repair damaged muscle) sensitivity to IgG-1 and other growth factors. Amount of DNA per muscle cell may also be significantly increased.

Trenbolone Acetate has a very strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor (AR), binding much more strongly than testosterone. This is important, because the stronger a steroid binds to the androgen receptor the better that steroid works at activating AR in muscle growth mechanism. There is also evidence that compounds which bind very tightly to the loss of fat. Think as the receptors as locks and androgens as different keys. With some keys (androgens) opening the locks (receptors) much better than others. But it is not the main feature, which describes the efficacy of the product. Anadrol does not have any measurable binding properties of AR, but we all know the potential of the growing mass.

Trenbolone Acetate increases nitrogen retention in muscle cells. This is important because nitrogen retention is a strong indicator of how anabolic a substance is. Trenbolone Acetate incredible mass building effects do not end there. Trenbolone Acetate has the ability to bind with the receptors of anti-anabolic (muscle destroying) glucocorticoid hormones. This also has the effect of inhibiting the catabolic (muscle destroying) hormone cortisol.

Another incredible feature that should be mentioned - increase feed efficiency and mineral absorption in animals given the drug. To help you understand what it means for you, feed efficiency is a measurement of how much food you should eat to be translated into the meat: the more need for food, the lower the efficiency. Conversely, the less food needed for the production of meat, the higher the efficiency. You get the idea. The animals who were given Trenbolone Acetate gained the weight of high-quality weight loss, even though the diet was not repaired / replaced, thus improving feed efficiency. The search for new compounds which can improve feed efficiency is allocated millions of dollars to the pharmaceutical industry. But what does this mean for the hard training athlete? The food you eat will be better utilized for building lean muscle mass. Vitamins and minerals are also better absorbed which may keep you healthier during cycle.

Trenbolone is a highly androgenic hormone, when compared with testosterone, an androgenic ratio of 100, while Trenbolone Acetate is astonishing is the 500th Highly androgenic steroids are appreciated for efficiency. They have the power and influence of changing the estrogen / androgen ratio, thus reducing water accumulation. If the report on trenbolone was not good enough, it gets better. Trenbolone is extraordinarily good as a fat reduction. One of the reasons - its powerful effect on nutrient partitioning. A little known fact is that androgen receptors are found in fat cells as well as muscle. Androgens act directly on the AR in fat cells to affect fat burning process. The stronger the androgen binds to the AR, the higher the fat burning effect of fat cells. Some steroids even increase the numbers of AR in muscle and fat this fat loss effect would be amplified with the concurrent use of other compounds, such as. of testosterone.

Trenbolone Acetate promotes red blood cell production and increases the rate of glycogen replenishment, significantly improving recovery. As with most products, the Trenbolone Acetate efficiency depends on the dose: the higher the dose, the stronger you will feel the effects. Mental changes are a notorious side effect of Trenbolone Acetate. Androgens increase chemicals in the brain that promote aggressive behavior, which may be beneficial for some athletes wanting to improve speed and power.

Trenbolone Acetate chemical structure makes it resistant to the aromatize enzyme (conversion to estrogen). So Trenbolone Acetate than one percent not convert to estrogen. Trenbolone Acetate trigger side effects such as breast cell growth in men (gyno, potassium cycka [NAICE]), increased fat gain, water accumulation, etc. Trenbolone Acetate is resistant to 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, this enzyme makes some preparations of hormones into a more androgenic but Trenbolone Acetate characteristic of this is irrelevant. Trenbolone increases androgenic equal to 500, which can cause androgenic side effects - hair loss, prostate enlargement, oily skin and acne,.Using a mixture of 19-nor like trenbolone also increased by all the group-specific side effects, diminished libido (shrunk testicles, erectile problems), so it is advisable to use the course testesterone.

The Trenbolone Acetate is a short-acting ester attached to the trenbolone molecule. Active 2-3 days but to keep blood levels, daily injections are often recommended. The Trenbolone Acetate provides a rapid and high concentration of the hormone which is very effective for those who care about fast growth, the Trenbolone Acetate, it can be quickly put an end to the onset of adverse side effects.

Ironically, even though Tren is a wonderful event preparation reduces thyriod levels and increased prolactin. Recommended for T3 (25mcgs/diena) together with Trenbolone Acetate, is an increasing number of lower prolactin / carpet. However, this product is a bad choice for athletes who are important for endurance, because it reduces the endurance, so it becomes a major obstacle for most athletes.

Several courses offered with trenbolone

Growth : It is observed that the estrogen significantly increases the mass growth than with one, of course we do not offer to take estrogen, but aromatizing oral anabolic steroids like Dianabol and long-acting esters, as testesteronai cypionatas or enathatas, increase growth.

Developing : Trenbolone Acetate good choice to have. A good choice to combine with Winstrol, it will work completely differently in the body than the Tren (ie in non-receptor mediated). Winstrol is a DHT-based drug and Tren is a 19-nor. Connecting the testosterone, you will get “cutting cycle, which will have an impact in the major 3-anabolic steroids families (Testosterone, 19-nor, and DHT). All of these agents on different principles.

Prolactin - this peptide hormone that is secreted by hipofizis.Vyrams prolactin value is not quite clear. For men the rate is 86-390 mU / L

Thyroid - is a hormone similar to thyroxine peripheral effects. Full T3 from T4 produces. Triiodothyronine effects on the periphery of the far more potent than thyroxine (T4).

Triiodthyronine much less bound to the transport protein - thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG). Hormone T3 (triiodothyronine) and decay removed from the body occurs in about 36 hours. To evaluate the clinical T3 pathology is important to understand that the majority of the hormone is not formed in the thyroid gland, but the peripheral organs (liver, kidney, fibroblasts). T3 rate of 1.2 to 2.7 nmol / l

Trenbolone enanthate vs Trenbolone Acetate

Trenbolone enanthate unlike testosterone-based steroids, does not result in the development of feminine sexual characteristics in men. This anabolic steroid has the ability of stimulating protein synthesis gains that prove useful in new tissue formation that, in turn, promote muscle growth or hypertrophy. Moreover, Trenbolone enanthate is used by those into boxing, MMA, and cycling as it helps with strength and speed. Trenbolone enanthate can demonstrate unmatched efficacy in reducing body fat levels as it has a strong cortisol-reducing effect along with the ability to bind to the glucocorticoid receptor.

Trenbolone Acetate has the molecular formula of C20H24O3 and has an anabolic-androgenic ratio of 500:500. It has an active life of 2-3 days and has the molecular weight of 270.3706 g/mol at the base. Trenbolone Acetate, a 19-nor steroid, is derived from the compound Nandrolone. It is characterized by strong androgenic properties and no estrogenic activity. This anabolic steroid has a binding affinity for androgen receptor five times the strength Testosterone. Trenbolone acetate is admired globally by elite athletes as it can dramatically improve the uptake of nitrogen by muscles and improve the level of protein synthesis. Ideal for cutting cycles, Trenbolone Acetate does not get metabolized by aromatase or 5α-reductase into estrogenic compounds like estradiol or into Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

The primary difference between Trenbolone Acetate and Trenbolone enanthate is esters. While Trenbolone enanthate, featured by comparatively less esters, peaks at a slow pace and leaves the system slowly, Trenbolone Acetate with more esters peaks faster and leaves the system faster. Moreover, Trenbolone Acetate is better when it comes to maintaining stable blood levels, especially when athletes want to gain muscle mass and strength when following a dieting regimen. Furthermore, the human body finds it simpler to absorb a higher percentage of milligrams when injected with the acetate form rather than in the enanthate form.

A big majority of athletes and bodybuilders, especially those into elite sports and professional bodybuilding, prefer Trenbolone acetate over Trenbolone enanthate. This is because the enanthate version of Trenbolone doesn’t result in as much hardening of muscles as experienced with the acetate version. While the acetate version is known to promote cutting, the enanthate version is used for adding muscle size. Beginners to the world of anabolic compounds should opt for Trenbolone Acetate instead of Trenbolone enanthate as Tren acetate gets out of the system quickly. However, the enanthate version of Tren is rarely associated with night sweats, insomnia, and over-aggression and allows athletes to reap the optimum benefits of the potent steroids. Trenbolone enanthate is less likely to result in the dreaded Tren cough and involves less pinning but the use of this steroid involves more of patience as results can take time.

The fact that Trenbolone acetate is easily and more readily available puts it ahead of the enanthate version. In addition, this short ester compound is better than enanthate version when it comes to controlling and manipulating blood levels.
