Trenbolone enanthate is an injectable form of the strong anabolic hormone trenbolone. Given the use of an enathate ester, trenbolone will exhibit a pretty much identical release pattern to testosterone enathate, providing a peak release a few days after injection, and then declining levels for roughly two weeks after. Slow acting trenbolone esters were first studied in 1967 during a series of experiments into synthetic anabolic steroids by Roussel-UCLAF. After this, the drug wouldn't be recognized for decades, until the underground steroid company British Dragon released it in 2004. Although it is not for sale through pharmacies nor is it approved for human use, trenbolone enathate is widely distributed throughout the world and is a very popular compound amongst bodybuilders and athletes. Trenbolone is considered to be one of the strongest steroids available today. It is roughly three times more anabolic than testosterone and a very potent androgen as well. Users of Trenbolone often report incredible gains in strength and solid muscle mass. Trenbolone doesn't convert to estrogen, therefore the gains seen off of this steroid are lean, quality muscle mass. The high amounts of androgen also work to bring about a defined "ripped" look to the user's muscles. Although it doesn't convert to estrogen, trenbolone being a nandrolone derivative does act on the progesterone receptor and can cause related side effects because of this trait. Progesterone side effects are similar to those of estrogenic side effects and can include things such as bloat and gyncomestia . Because of this, users of trenbolone might want to consider running an agent such as bromocripten or cabasear in order to combat possible progesterone related side effects. Trenbolone is a versatile steroid and can be incorporated well into both bulking and cutting cycles. Users looking to bulk may choose to stack Trenbolone enathate with other steroids such as testosterone and an oral such as dianabol. Users looking to run a cutting cycle will often look to stack trenbolone with other steroids such as winstrol and masteron. It is important to note that trenbolone will shut down the body's natural testosterone production very quickly, thus making a post cycle therapy protocol essential upon the discontinuance of the drug. Users often choose to run testosterone for a couple of weeks after the trenbolone in order to clear the receptors of the compound and make recovery a little easier to accomplish. The high androgenic activity of trenbolone means that androgen related side effects are very common with this drug. These side effects can include things such as oily skin, acne, increased growth of facial and body hair. The typical dosage for men taking trenbolone is 300-600mg a week. Because of the fast acting nature of the acetate ester, users inject Trenbolone twice per week. Users of this drug often limit cycles to 6-8 weeks in order to prevent any natural HPTA recovery issues. Women are urged to stay away from trenbolone, as the strong androgenic properties of this drug almost guarantee masculizing side effects will occur.
