Trenbolone Acetate is an anabolic quite unlike other on the market. Its base is not of normal testosterone, like others, but of 19-nor testosterone, which means the original structure was altered through the removal of a carbon atom at the 19th carbon point.
Left alone, this would make it Nandrolone, commonly known as Durabolin. However, there are further changes to its chemical structure that differentiate it.
Mainly, the introduction of a double bond between the ninth and eleventh carbon points. While simple, this creates a very stable agent that is processed differently than its chemical cousin. Below, we look at exactly how this processing occurs.
The way in which Trenbolone is processed and exerts its effects on the body is much the same way as other anabolics.
Namely, it bonds to select receptors known as androgen receptors in certain cells in the body, and causes a change in the molecular signaling to cause an increase in muscle protein synthesis and a reduction in protein breakdown.
However, where it differs in the more peripheral reactions. It doesn’t partially convert into estrogen, through a process known as aromatization because the chemical won’t bind with aromatase enzymes like other will. It also has a five times greater affinity for binding with the above-mentioned androgen receptors, meaning it will have a far greater impact on the body than other anabolics.
Alongside its impact on protein synthesis and breakdown, it also elicits a big increase in red blood cell production.
On a global scale in the body, this is what causes the effects that are discussed below.
The potent way in which this chemical reacts and is processed in the body is a double-edged sword. This means it can be very beneficial, but also very detrimental. Indeed both the desired and undesirable effects occur with similar potency, and will last in the body for around the same period as the drug is present, with one or two exceptions. As such, both should be carefully considered and reviewed when looking to acquire and use it in your program.
The massive increase in muscle protein synthesis and concurrent decrease in breakdown, as well as its encouragement of erythrocyte production, help produce a number of favorable effects in the body, especially for those in athletic or aesthetic fields.
Namely, it causes a substantial increase in muscle mass over a relatively short period of time, with some reports estimating as much as 10kg of muscle gained in as little as 8 weeks. This will also bring substantial boosts in related fitness attributes like strength and power capacity
The efficient increase in muscle mass and rise in red blood cell count will also boost the rate and magnitude of recovery from strenuous activity like training or a competition, and work capacity in general.
All of these make it clear as to why this chemical is so well-known, sought after, and used in gyms around the world, particularly for those competing in their respective sports and activities.
As stated above, the stable and potent nature of Trenbolone Acetate means it comes with its fair share of drawbacks to go along with its benefits.
- Cardiovascular issues, increasing the risk of cardiac arrest or stroke: Involving the rise of unhealthy LDL cholesterol, arterial wall stiffness, and heart size.
- Psychosocial issues, including mood swings and sleep disturbances.
- Androgen-related issues, including skin issues like acne and bouts of oily skin, as well as accelerated balding in genetically at-risk individuals and virilizing effects in female users.
- Progestational issues, including estrogen-independent development of gynecomastia and negative effects on sexual performance.
- Hypothalamic-Pituitary issues, including a suppression of endogenous testosterone manufacturing, which will persist even after use has ceased, and is uniquely potent and sustained with Trenbolone Acetate in comparison with other anabolics.
- Other issues, including temporary shortness of breath and coughing immediately after administration.
It should be noted that the progestational effects may be manageable with the inclusion of SERM agents, and androgenic effects can be managed somewhat with a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. However, the first line of defense for adverse effects will always need to be dose control and watching your periods of use, as well as appropriate Post Cycle Therapy.
The efficiency of Trenbolone Acetate, matched with its potency means it is often used in a range of different regimes, ones where the aim is mass gain, and ones where the aim is preservation of mass and fitness when cutting down in size.
It is usually more popular during the latter, and during periods where only efficient lean mass gains are desired. In these periods, the continuous use of Trenbolone is usually carried out for periods of between 8 to 12 weeks.
The use of it in these types of programs is also normally reserved for those who have previous experience in the use of anabolics, and not newcomers. It’s also only advised to be taken by males due to its high androgenic impact because of the potentially permanent virilizing effects mentioned above.
Although originally sold in pellet form, its primary use being veterinary in nature, the most common format of acquiring Trenbolone Acetate is in injectable form, to be administered via intramuscular injection through sites like the lateral deltoid and gluteal muscles.
It would normally be administered here in
amounts of between 50 to 150 milligrams taken every second day, with more
seasoned users administering these amounts daily.
