Almost everybody who does anabolic steroids is raving about Trenbolone.
The internet is flooded with websites that talk about how it is the only compound that does not cause gyno, does not make you go bald (unless you are predisposed to MPB) and burns fat while packing on the muscle.
So we don’t really blame you if you’ve been nursing a secret desire to throw in some Tren during your next blast.
To be honest, Trenbolone is an amazing compound. It has all the traits of a near ‘perfect’ anabolic drug.
However, it is a very, very powerful compound that can be incredibly toxic if you don’t know what you are doing with it, which is normally the case with most newbies.
So, here are 8 tips that will allow you to make the most of your Trenbolone cycle without ending up bloated, with a shutdown and with gynecomastia.
#1 – Do not use it in your first steroid cycle
Your first steroid cycle should only be Testosterone. Period.
We cannot emphasize on this enough. Do not use Trenbolone in your first cycle. Why, you shouldn’t even be anywhere near Tren unless you have multiple steroid cycles under your belt.
If you are planning to add Tren to the first steroid cycle of your life, then good luck. Chances are that this will be the last cycle that you do for a very long time.
#2 – Do not use it as a base steroid
You cannot use Trenbolone as a base steroid and build a cycle around it.
The base steroid should be testosterone, at least in small doses so that you are able to function normally and retain muscle when your endogenous test shuts down.
Also, this will keep your wiener working. Something that Tren can absolutely trash.
#3 – Understand the different esters before you use it
There are two esters of Trenbolone that are commonly used for bodybuilding. Before you hop on to either one of them, it is important that you understand the differences and the side effects that come with each one.
Tren-E is the long, slow acting ester with a half-life of about 19-days. This means that the compound takes time to peak in your system and will subsequently take a lot of time to get excreted. Tren-E is generally considered to be likelier to cause side effects as opposed to Tren Ace. However, this is subjective. There are many seasoned bodybuilders who like to use Tren-E over Ace. But if its your first cycle with Tren, it makes sense to go with Ace as opposed to Enanthate.
This is the shorter ester and undoubtedly, the more popular version of Trenbolone. Gets absorbed in just days and is excreted equally fast from the system. However, most experts recommend that you inject every day if you are using Tren Ace. So if pinning every day is a concern, then you may want to consider Enanthate. Most users will also find the sides of Tren Ace, easier to manage.
This is another long acting ester and is the least used version of Trenbolone by bodybuilders and recreational users.
#4 – Keep Cabergoline handy before you begin your cycle
Don’t let all the talk about how ‘Tren cannot cause gyno’ fool you into believing that you are safe.
Trenbolone may not aromatize. But it has a very strong affinity to progestin and can still stimulate the estrogen receptor and cause gyno.
However, there’s an easy workaround. Just keep cabergoline handy and use it if you notice the slightest symptom of gynecomastia while you are on Tren.
#5 – Start with a low dose and hold to it until you run a few cycles with it
It has become increasingly common to see cycles that have 500-600mg/week of Tren Ace. That’s a very high dose even by veterinary standards.
Unless you have a very good idea of how Trenbolone will affect your system, you are only inviting trouble by running that high a dose.
Instead, start with a very small dose and inject EOD for a couple of weeks followed by ED for the rest of the duration of your cycle.
For your first few cycles with Tren, we don’t recommend dosing more than 250-300mg/week.
#6 – Say goodbye to your hair if you are prone to male pattern baldness
Trenbolone will greatly accelerate the rate at which you shed, especially if you are prone to male pattern baldness.
In all fairness, we can say that you WILL lose your hair if you run multiple cycles of Trenbolone.
You can add N2Shampoo on cycle as it will greatly reduce the rate at which your hairline thins. But even that will not be able to prevent the inevitable.
On the other hand, if you are not prone to male pattern baldness but are still losing your hair on Tren, then we highly recommend N2Shampoo during cycle.
#7 – Keep your lipids in check
Trenbolone will trash your lipids. It will increase total cholesterol and LDL while reducing HDL greatly.
These are key markers for atherosclerosis and cardiac disease. So if you have dyslipidemia, do yourself a favor and stay away from Trenbolone.
Even if you do not have dyslipidemia, we highly recommend that you do bloodwork before, mid-cycle and after cycle to keep a tag on your lipid values.
Use on-cycle support with N2guard to protect your organs from the damage that Tren can inflict on it.
#8 – Be aware of the mental sides
There are a lot of anecdotal reviews about the mental side effects of using Trenbolone. But nothing can prepare you for how it will affect you.
It affects people differently. That we can tell you.
We felt like a lion on Tren. But as we increased the dose in subsequent cycles, we found the sides too hot to handle.
We would wake up sweating profusely in the middle of the night. There were nights when we just couldn’t sleep one bit. We had a growing feeling that our partner was cheating on us. But these effects tapered off when we reduced the dose.
Some users have feelings of paranoia and suspicion. But others get increased rage, aggression and polarizing thoughts on Tren.
The best you can do is to be aware of the possible sides so that you don’t fly off the handle too often.
