Trenbolone – a powerful anabolic steroid used previously in veterinary medicine to increase muscle mass and appetite in livestock.
To increase the duration of action Trenbolone is not used in its original form, as a rule esterified derivatives are used: trenbolone acetate (with the shortest duration of action) and trenbolone enanthate. After introduction into the muscle, trenbolone esters are gradually decomposed by plasma lipase, providing a prolonged supply of the active substance to the blood. It has a powerful anabolic effect, but has many side effects, so it is not the best choice.
Trenbolone Acetate is one of the most popular forms of the drug (also known as Trenbol-100, Finaplex, Finaplex, Finagect, Finaget). Trenbolone acetate has a short half-life, therefore it is injected every day. The effective dose is approximately 50 mg daily or 100 mg every other day.
Trenbolone is one of the strongest steroids in its ability to increase strength and muscle mass. At the same time, this affects the frequency of side effects, the probability of occurrence of which is quite high, especially with incorrectly prepared courses.
Trenbolone gained its popularity mainly because it is not able to aromatize into estrogen under the influence of aromatase.
The general rule for all steroids is – that the more powerful the drug, the more side effects, that are well suited for Trenbolone. The safest course of trenbolone is constructed as follows:
- Do not exceed recommended dosages (Trenbolone Acetate – 50 mg/per day, Trenbolone Enanthate – 300 mg/per week);
- Reception should begin with a minimum dose to check tolerance (possible the appearance of negative reactions that require interruption of the course);
- The duration of the course should not exceed a period of 5-6 weeks, without the use of gonadotropin;
- Post-cycle therapy (PCT) is carried out 2 weeks after the last injection, when the drug is almost completely eliminated from the body, or after 2-3 days if acetate was administered. Clomed or toremifene is used according to the standard PCT scheme. Tamoxifen is not recommended because it enhances the progestin side effects of trenbolone.
Boldenone (Equipoise) – can be used instead of primobolan, however, it should be noted that it significantly increases appetite.
Boldenone was created as a long-acting version of methandrostenolone, however, a steroid was obtained that has completely different properties, despite the chemical similarity of the molecules. Boldenone is a Dianabol molecule that lacks the 17-alpha-methyl group (this part of the molecule allows Dianabol to pass through the liver without breaking down).
Boldenone Equipoise is chemically a testosterone molecule that has a double bond between 1 and 2 carbon atoms. This modification made boldenone as powerful as testosterone in its anabolic properties, while the androgenic properties of the drug are half as pronounced. However, practice shows that Equipoise allows you to get lower results than the equivalent amount of testosterone.
Also, this connection inhibits the process of aromatization (conversion to estrogen) of the drug. Athletes almost never notice side effects of boldenone associated with estrogen (gynecomastia, edema, increased pressure), even if the dose reaches 1 g per week. This means that during the course of Equipoise there is no need to take antiestrogens.
Low androgenic activity allows women to use equipoise. Virilization phenomena occur quite rarely, compared with other drugs. Boldenone is one of the few injectable drugs that can be used in female bodybuilding with the least risk of side effects.
Turinabol (also known as Turanobol, Turinover, Turinoger, Turamoth, Turinabolos) – is an anabolic steroid that is close in effects and chemical structure to methandrostenolone.
The difference from methandrostenolone is that turinabol contains an additional chlorine atom at the fourth carbon atom.
The drug can be characterized as methandrostenolone without the effect of fluid retention in the body.
It is a delayed acting steroid. During the course of turinabol, weight, strength and relief progress very slowly, but according to the statements of athletes, these results are better.
Another distinctive feature of the drug is the absence of estrogenic effects (due to the addition of a chlorine atom to the molecule, the process of aromatization does not occur in the body), that is, such side effects as fluid accumulation, gynecomastia, etc. almost never occur.
In preparation for the Olympic Games, the optimal dose of the drug was selected, which caused a minimum of side effects – 20-40 mg per day, divided into three doses, but bodybuilders often neglect these quantity, bringing the dosage to 100-150 mg per day.
The drug can be used both for bulking muscle mass and for cutting. The course of turinabol does not require the inclusion of gonadotropin (if it does not exceed 6-8 weeks), but post-cycle therapy is carried out with estrogen receptor blockers (tamoxifen, clomiphene, also known as Tamoxifen, Clomed). Turinabol monocourse is considered one of the easiest and safest in bodybuilding, so it is often recommended for beginners. For the first course, 40 mg/day for 6 weeks is considered the optimal dosage. This allows you to get impressive results, both in terms of an increase in quality muscle mass, and in the progress of speed-power results.
Strombafort (active ingredient – stanozolol, also known as Stanoger, Winstrol, Stanover, Nabolik, Stanazolik, Strombajekt, Stromba, Menabol, Stanol, Terabon, Cetabone) is an anabolic steroid available in tablets and solution for injection (Strombaject Aqua). This is a synthetic 17α-methylated steroid, a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, which differs greatly from natural steroids by the addition of + 3,2-pyrazole. Unlike most injectable forms, stanozolol is an aqueous suspension of a free substance.
Strombafort in tablets has high bioavailability and stability (it does not break down in the liver when passed) due to the alkyl group in alpha-17 position, however, this makes stanozolol in tablets toxic to the liver. However, the injection form is also not without this drawback, the difference in toxicity and bioavailability of both forms of the steroid is minimal.
Strombafort differs in greater availability and much lower cost from Oxandrolone. The course is structured in a similar way. To reduce liver toxicity, an injection form (50 mg / day) can be used, since when taken orally, the entire drug passes through it, while the suspension is only partially (from the systemic circulation). Although, on the other hand, the indicated oral dosage is not hazardous to health, while injections are very painful and abscesses develop relatively often.
Strombafort tablet can be consumed in 2-3 doses (most in the first half of the day) on an empty stomach. Optionally, after a cycle, you can drink hepatoprotectors to restore the liver.
Chorionic gonadotropin – it is a hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy, and then is excreted unchanged in the urine, from where it is extracted and purified to obtain drugs. Chorionic gonadotropin has the same biological effects as luteinizing hormone, which is formed in the pituitary gland.
In bodybuilding, the use of chorionic gonadotropin is justified and even necessary during a course of anabolic steroids for the prevention of testicular atrophy. In this case, its use is safe, since the dose of the drug is much lower, in addition, chorionic gonadotropin eliminates some side effects of anabolic steroids, as well as preserve the gained muscle mass.
This drug has many controversial administration protocols. However, recent studies have shown a clear need for the use of gonadotropin in long courses (more than 6 weeks). This allows you to recover much faster after the course. The recommendations in the courses are based on the experience of Western andrologists. If gonadotropin was not administered on the course, blast-therapy is necessary.
Aromatase inhibitors (Anastrozol, Exedrol, Letrozol)- are required even at low dosages of testosterone, since the level of aromatization of testosterone is high, so there is a need to prevent estrogenic side effects (fluid accumulation, gynecomastia, suppression of the axis of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes). Low dosages of anastrozole are used, which allow maintaining the level of estrogen necessary for the body, while increasing relief and accelerating recovery. Confirmation are numerous reviews of Western athletes and qualified specialists. Ideally, the intake of IA is carried out under the control of the tests (they are prescribed if the level of estradiol is elevated), but it should be remembered that gynecomastia is often irreversible. An indirect sign of excessive estrogen suppression is a decrease in libido and erectile dysfunction, in which case the dosage of IA should be reduced.
Clomed – is the basis of post-cycle therapy, which begins 3-5 days after the final injection. Clomed is needed to restore the axis of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes, which is suppressed by anabolic drugs. The drug activates the secretion of endogenous testosterone.
Tamoxifen should not be used. Tamoxifen is not recommended in this case, since studies have shown the ability to increase the number and sensitivity of progesterone receptors.
Hepatoprotectors for liver repair is recommended.
