First, trenbolone has a rather high anabolic and androgenic index: 500% of testosterone, which is five times the power of any of the testosterone esters. However, unfortunately, trenbolone has one significant drawback that makes trenbolone an ideal preparation in the drying phase and at the same time practically useless during the mass collection period. We are talking about the lack of aromatization of the drug. Simply put, trenbolone does not retain water and, unfortunately, contributes to a very small increase in mass. Nevertheless, many athletes use it in order to increase strength indicators. And if you believe the reviews, trenbolone copes with this task with a bang.
The second minus of trenbolone should be called progestogen activity. In practice, this means a significant increase in prolactin and a slight increase in progesterone in the body. Thus, this does not deprive trenbolone of such side effects as gynecomastia and fluid accumulation. The fact is that gynecomastia (breast enlargement) is formed due to prolactin. It is thanks to prolactin that an increase in the mammary glands is formed. On the other hand, progesterone can also be the building material here.
There are cases when excessive progesterone (at normal values of prolactin and estradiol) is enough for the appearance of gynecomastia. Of cycle, with low estradiol, gynecomastia alone cannot form in principle. It is about very low estradiol (by using anastrazole ). But as soon as estradiol begins to increase and at the same time, prolactin values remain at a high level, there is a risk of gynecomastia. And sooner or later, estradiol will rise anyway (unless of cycle you drink anastrazole for life). At this stage, one thing should be clarified: trenbolone should be taken together with cabergoline (Dostinex, Bergolac) 1 tablet once a week.
Pros of Trenbolone
Increases the level of insulin-like growth factor by 200%. There are even studies on this subject. In fact, trenbolone allows you to save on somatomedine (IGF). In this regard, the use of trenbolone on drying is more than relevant; Trenbolone promotes fat burning both on its own and by stimulating the secretion of growth hormone – another factor that allows the use of trenbolone on drying;
Reduces the level of cortisol – not an unimportant factor on drying, when the level of cortisol reaches its limit.
As for the combination of trenbolone with other drugs, it should in no case be combined with nandrolone decanoate and oxymetalone. These drugs, like trenbolone, have progestogen activity. With their combination, prolactin and progesterone can rise so much that cabergoline and stingy will not even help their reduction. It should be said that for most athletes, gynecomastia manifests itself precisely due to the use of drugs with progestogen activity.
What can trenbolone be combined with?
The author of this article believes that trenbolone should be used with caution with any testosterone esters due to its already high androgenic index. When using a long time combination of trenbolone with testosterone esters, side effects such as baldness and short-term impotence up to chronic infertility are possible.
Are such experiments worth the candle? Here everyone has to decide for himself.
As for the combination of trenbolone with masteron, stanozolol, oxandrolone, primobolan, boldenone, turinabol, the author does not see any problems for such a combination of drugs.
Thus, based on the theory, trenbolone is literally sharpened for the drying period.
Can it be used on a mass basis?
If we talk about the use of trenbolone on a mass basis, then we should not use the acetate form, but rather the enanthate form (either parabolan or tri-tren) – that is, a long-acting form. The author believes that trenbolone during mass collection can be combined with caution with methandrostenolone and (or) boldenone. With caution, you can also combine with testosterone propionate (the emphasis should be on the short testosterone ester). However, in this case, the dosage of drugs should be reduced.
Unfortunately, most artisanal manufacturers use the veterinary preparation Revalor or its analogues to make their own brands of trenbolone. It is used to feed animals before slaughter. Revalor contains, depending on the version, 80-200 mg of trenbolone acetate and 8-24 mg of estradiol. That is why the development of estrogenic side effects is often reported: gynecomastia, edema, etc. When choosing a drug, an emphasis should be placed on the manufacturer. At the time of this writing, Farmak Labs is showing high quality trenbolone manufacturing .
Thus, trenbolone is an excellent preparation for drying (provided that you have high-quality trenbolone in your hands) and at the same time not the worst (but not the best) drug in the phase of the mass collection cycle.
The progestogenic activity of the drug should be stopped with cabergoline without fail. The use of trenbolone can significantly save on IGF and dosages of growth hormone during the drying period. The use of trenbolone in the mass collection cycle allows you to build better and leaner meat by activating and increasing the growth hormone and somatomedin in the blood.
