Trenbolone Benefits and Side Effects

Trenbolone Use for Bodybuilding

Trenbolone is one of the most powerful anabolic steroids found on the black market today. Unfortunately, the benefits that Tren offers are often misunderstood.

Trenbolone is similar to the steroid nandrolone with a slight twist of two added chemical bonds found in the nucleus of the formula.

What Nandrolone and Trenbolone have in common is that they are both 19-nor steroids. This means that a testosterone molecule has been altered at the 19th position.

The big difference between the two is that Trenbolone works much better for increasing mass than nandrolone does.

One of the benefits that bodybuilders love about Trenbolone is that it is an excellent steroid for gaining dense and hard muscle mass with minimal water retention.

History of Trenbolone

Trenbolone is officially a veterinary drug fed to beef cattle as a means of helping them bulk up before slaughter. Among the bodybuilding community, some consider Tren a veterinary grade drug.

While Tren may be considered a drug used solely in the veterinary field, this is not the original reason why it was made.

Trenbolone was created in 1960 for use in humans, specifically for treating symptoms of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and malnutrition. It was originally sold under the name Parabolan by the French Pharmaceutical company Negma.

Those who had the privilege of using Parabolan back in the day say that it was a thousand times better than Trenbolone.

Today Trenbolone is produced generically by different (UG labs) and used mostly by hardcore bodybuilders who know their stuff.

The biggest benefit of Trenbolone is the ability to quickly help men gain muscle.

Not much has changed with this steroid over the last few decades, Trenbolone is still illegal and remains classified as a schedule III drug. Trenbolone can only be obtained legally with a prescription and used under the supervision of a doctor who is within good standing with a medical licensing board.

The Benefits of Trenbolone

The main benefit of injecting Trenbolone is from its bulking action.

Trenbolone helps the body prime itself to build bigger muscles by increasing protein synthesis in the cells.

Protein synthesis uses both DNA and RNA to instruct the cells to build peptides that help the cell to create new muscle fibers.

When a bodybuilder trains the body does what it can to cope with that stress. Exercise is a trigger that the body needs to create muscle fibers.

Trenbolone binds better than testosterone.

Trenbolone easily binds to androgen receptors, this is important for gaining muscle, a steroid that binds well with androgen receptors makes it much easier to gain muscle and also increase fat loss.

1. More nitrogen

The key to any bodybuilders training is maintaining strength and preventing fatigue.

Enduring hard workouts is a key element for gaining muscle. Trenbolone increases nitrogen retention in the muscles and prevents fatigue, this allows a bodybuilder to train longer with more intensity.

Trenbolone also helps bind with anti-anabolic glucocorticoid (muscle destroying) hormones.

2. Androgenic and Anabolic Ratio

The anabolic and androgenic ratio of trenbolone is 500 for both, this makes it five times more androgenic than testosterone which is why it's one of the strongest anabolic steroids available.

Tren is sold as an enanthate ester (Tren Ace) and can also be made into a Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate form. The Hex formula is usually more expensive. Most bodybuilders comment they do not notice a big difference between the Hex and the acetate.

Trenbolone is also sold oral tablets but it's not common to find it in that presentation.

3. Trenbolone and Protein Synthesis

Trenbolone works because it helps your muscle cells process incoming nutrients into usable amino acids, this allows muscle fibers to grow and recover fast.

Protein synthesis is the chemical process by which a cell makes a usable protein polypeptide. It is literally a recipe that is found in your genetic code and imparted to the cell by way of a messenger RNA molecule. The process is complex and takes time, but when there is excess testosterone, the process speeds up and that is how trenbolone helps the body to add bulk.

Using Trenbolone

Since Trenbolone is both anabolic and androgenic it can be used by itself with low to moderate doses and still see great results. Some bodybuilders say that it should be stacked with testosterone which is not true. Trenbolone is capable of producing results on its own without stacking it with other steroids.

Trenbolone Dose

A low dose of Trenbolone consisting of 200mg per week can deliver great results, however, a lot of bodybuilders will inject more, (up to 600mg) a week. You should consider that higher doses will increase the possibility of side effects.

Tren ace is normally injected every other day while the enanthate or hex is injected twice a week.

Trenbolone half-life

  • No-ester 6-8 hours
  • Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate 10-12 days
  • Enanthate 8-10 days
  • Tren Acetate 2-3 days

Athletes and pro bodybuilders should consider that detection time of Tren can be up to 5 months making it a poor choice for professional athletes or those that will have to go through anti-doping tests, even with no esters the substances can be detected for up to 60 days.

Now that we have told you about the amazing benefits of Tren, here come the not so nice things about Tren and those are the side effects.

Stacking Tren

Tren can be stacked with milder steroids and some bodybuilders do, however you should know that combining Tren with other substances will increase the risk of side effects. A lot of guys will stack Tren with Turinabol, Anava or Primobolan.

Trenbolone Side Effects

Tren Rage

We have all heard about it and if it's one steroid that produces aggression it would be Trenbolone. Trenbolone is so androgenic that it causes severe aggressiveness due to its androgenic nature.

Low blood sugar

The second cause of roid rage from this steroid is low blood sugar which can make normal people irritable. So if you are going to use Tren make sure you are consuming plenty of carbs to keep blood sugar levels within the normal range.

If you are going to use Tren you should be ready to focus on your workouts and train as intensely as possible to avoid the potential pinned up rage from this steroid.

Tren is a steroid that should NOT be used by novice bodybuilders or first-time steroid users. Most will not have the capacity to handle the side effects that this androgenic steroid delivers.

Tren Dick

While you may have heard that Tren Dick is caused by rising estrogen levels this is false, on the contrary Trenbolone does not aromatize. Estrogen levels have nothing to do with not being able to get it up. The cause of Tren dick is high prolactin levels which lead to symptoms of ED and low sex drive.

I should also note that if you are the hotheaded type and not mature enough to handle your anger you should avoid Tren.

Trenbolone is can affect the liver (hepatoxic) so it is important to keep a close eye on enzyme levels. Oral Tren pills can be more taxing on the liver.

Other common side effects include:

  • Hair loss
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased Acne
  • Insomnia
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Excess sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Suppress testosterone

Results from Tren

If you are looking for performance results from using Tren you will get them, most guys who use Tren will quickly notice both strength and muscle gains. Those who are insulin sensitive will quickly notice that they are able to get shredded and vascular even with a crappy diet. The opposite happens with men who are insulin resistant those will notice that they are able to bulk up quickly.

Trenbolone for women

Obviously due to the androgenic nature of this steroid women should avoid it completely without exceptions. That is unless you really want to begin to look like a dude. The Masculinization side effects of this steroid will easily present themselves in women.

Trenbolone Price

Trenbolone is readily available from many reputable underground labs, I have seen it oral pills (which I would avoid) and in injectable. 10 1ML ampules will cost anywhere between $80.00- $110.00.


Trenbolone is a powerful steroid that should only be used by experienced bodybuilders who have full and in-depth knowledge about anabolic steroids and potential risks. Like with most anabolic steroids buying them online is risky business, you will find more counterfeit versions of Tren than you will legitimate sources so choose carefully.
