Trenbolone is one of the most powerful anabolic steroids available . It is injected intramuscularly into one of the several injection sites on the body. Trenbolone is not available in a form that can be taken orally. It is an intermediate to advanced level steroid and it should never be used by people who have recently started using anabolic steroids. First time users or those who are about to start their first anabolic steroid cycle should not take trenbolone. Only those who have already completed several cycles of testosterone or any other beginner level anabolic steroid may use trenbolone.
You should give trenbolone its due respect because it is associated with certain side effects that are not seen with the use of other anabolic steroids. If you use it irresponsibly or without knowing what it can do, it can cause serious health effects.
Trenbolone can be obtained in three esterified variants – Trenbolone Acetate, Trenbolone Enanthate, and Trenbolone Cyclohexylmethylcarbonate also known as Parabolan. The basic difference between these three variants is their half lives.
Trenbolone is a strong androgenic compound. This compound along with its fat burning property gives it many advantages. It is basically derived from the anabolic steroid nandrolone, but unlike nandrolone it has no estrogenic property. It cannot be converted into estrogen because it has a double bond on the c9-10 carbon. This makes it totally resistant to the action of aromatase, which converts steroids without this bond into estrogen. So trenbolone is a flexible and versatile anabolic steroid, which provides tremendous muscle gain.
Trenbolone affects muscle growth in many ways. It increases the level of IGF-1 (Insulin like growth factor) inside the muscle tissue. On the other hand, muscle satellite cells, the cells that repair the damage to muscle fibers also become more sensitive to IGF-1 and related growth factors. It also increases the DNA level in the muscle cells significantly.
Trenbolone is strongly attracted to androgen receptors. In fact, in trenbolone this property is stronger than that of testosterone. Much like how the Celsius scale uses the freezing point and boiling point of water to measure temperature, testosterone is used as a baseline to measure the potency of anabolic steroids. For example, while the androgenic and anabolic property of testosterone is 100 each, the androgenic and anabolic property of trenbolone is 500 each. This means trenbolone is five times stronger in its androgenic and anabolic properties when compared to testosterone. To be benefited from 1000 mg of testosterone, only 200 mg of trenbolone has to be administered. This means you do not need to take large doses to see the effects. In fact, large doses can lead to adverse affects.
Like nearly all other anabolic steroids, nitrogen retention also increases in muscle fibers after taking trenbolone. The drug also has anti-catabolic properties. Trenbolone can prevent catabolism or breakdown of muscle that usually accompanies intense exercise . Cortisol and its related hormones have receptor sites inside muscle cells. Cortisol is responsible for breaking down protein for fuel. It also suppresses inflammation that develops when the tissue is injured. It actually binds with these receptors, inhibiting the action of cortisol and other glucocorticoid hormones.
History of trenbolone
Trenbolone is a well known anabolic steroid. But unfortunately, the use of this steroid is shrouded in mystery and misunderstanding. Trenbolone was initially sold as Finaject in the 1980s . It was also known as Finajet, Finapl, Trenbol75 and Agri-Vet . It was given to cattle to increase their lean mass and BMI.
The drug was also available in pellet form and was called Finaplix. These pellets were implanted into the ears of cattle before they were transported for slaughter. The pellets maintained the cattle's weight during transportation. Bodybuilders also used Finaject and Finaplix to increase their muscle mass. Trenbolone does not cause water retention unlike some other steroids. This was one of the reasons why it was so popular among bodybuilders, who did not want to go beyond a certain weight. Both Finaject and Finaplix have not been produced since 1987.
One of the names for trenbolone acetate is 'Fina'. This is because when bodybuilders first started injecting trenbolone, it was by dissolving Finaplix pellets. 'Conversion kits' were available to convert the Finaplix into an injectable drug. The method was not sterile and often led to infection as well as formation of abscess. But it was popular because the pellets came cheap and they were easy to obtain. This method is unnecessary now because injectable trenbolone acetate can be bought as a black market product.
Finaject or Finaplix was usually stacked with Winstrol, which is another anabolic steroid. If you are able to find any Finaject or Finaplix now, it is most likely counterfeit. Testosterone or some other anabolic...
