Trenbolone after course therapy
What is Trenbolone?
Trenbolone, also known as trenbolone, is the second most popular anabolic steroid used in bodybuilding after testosterone. It is a derivative of nandrolone, but its effects differ significantly from that steroid.
Trenbolone is about 5 times more potent than testosterone. It is capable of complete conversion within a single cycle. It is most commonly used in weight loss diets because it helps to maintain almost 100% muscle mass despite a calorie deficit. However, due to its high anabolic strength, it is also suitable for muscle mass gain.
As a reminder, tranbolone should not be taken by anyone under the age of 18!
Forms and half-life
Basically, there are 3 forms of trenbolone: acetate, enanthate and hexahydrobenzyl carbonate. These differ only in the half-life and the percentage of the substance in the preparation.
The dosage you should use depends, of course, on your experience in the gym, your body weight and how long you have been taking anabolic steroids. Trenbolone should always be combined with testosterone! Otherwise, you will experience other side effects such as: decreased libido, dry joints, impaired mood and more.
In my opinion, the best dosage for the first cycle that includes Trenbolone is 350 mg/week combined with 175 mg/week of testosterone. However, these are relatively low doses that are sufficient to build a large amount of muscle mass. The main advantage of this dosage is that there is no need to use aromatase inhibitors.
For long-term steroid use, you can start with a double dose, e.g. 700 mg/week of trenbolone + 350 mg/week of testosterone. In my opinion, a 2:1 ratio is best for ease of estradiol control and quality of gains.
When using short esters of tranbolone, daily injections are very important. They are essential for maintaining a stable blood count. If the patient chooses to take injections less frequently, he should be aware of the possibility of a significant drop in mood and libido.
The best trenbolone combinations
Trenbolone also works well with other steroids. The most popular combination is RIP-blend, which is a combination of testosterone, trenbolone, and masteron. This is one of the most effective steroids for promoting fat loss. However, it can be combined with almost any steroid. However, I do not recommend combining it with other nandrolones because estradiol, progesterone and prolactin problems are difficult to treat with this combination.
Properties of Trenbolone
Thanks to all the above chemical composition properties, trenbolone is androgenic and anabolic, stronger than its predecessor nandrolone and more potent than testosterone. The hormone testosterone Testosterone is the benchmark by which all anabolic steroids are measured and compared. It is a scale similar to the Celsius scale, where the boiling and freezing points of water are considered the main indicators of temperature.
Trenbolone’s anabolic and androgenic strength can be put into perspective by comparing it to testosterone. Testosterone has an anabolic androgenic index of 100, while trenbolone has an anabolic index of 500. Because of the double bond of 19 and 11 carbon atoms, trenbolone is five times stronger than testosterone. For a better understanding, we can say that 200 mg of trenbolone is equivalent to 1000 mg of testosterone and 500 mg is equivalent to 2500 mg.
This proves an extremely important fact (which everyone should keep in mind): trenbolone is an anabolic steroid of exceptional strength, the strongest available. This data shows that impressive and long-lasting results can be achieved even at low doses. Trenbolone is a shortcut to achieving the desired effect.
In terms of metabolic processes, as mentioned, trenbolone is completely resistant to the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for the conversion of androgens to estrogens. It has no estrogenic effect and does not convert to estrogens.
Trenbolone is also completely resistant to the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which is responsible for reducing the more potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is testosterone. It does not interact with the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and does not convert to DHT. However, it should be kept in mind that trenbolone itself is a hormone with an androgenic index of 500, as opposed to testosterone with an index of 100.
Therapy after the course
To ensure effective recovery, we need to:
Restore normal testosterone synthesis as soon as possible and reduce the level of female hormones (estrogen), which is higher than usual in the post-course period due to increased aromatization of testosterone, i.e. its natural conversion to estradiol.
Restores libido and spermatogenesis.
Reduce cortisol levels by reducing exercise, exertion and physical strain. After the course, the body weakens and cannot recover as strongly as when taking medication. If you don’t reduce the workload, you will “burn” your muscles.
To start SCT after steroid use, you must first wait for the artificial hormone to leave your bloodstream. To do this, you need to take into account the breakdown time of the various drugs. For example, in the case of meth, stanozolol or testosterone propionate, this period lasts up to 2-3 days, and in the case of enanthate, susta or decaat it takes 2-3 weeks.
PCT (post cycle therapy) is a set of drugs and sports supplements used in bodybuilding and strength sports to minimize side effects and complications after a cycle with steroid hormones or prohormones. Aftercare is especially important when high doses of hormones or two or more anabolic preparations are used simultaneously. Literally, PCT stands for post-cycle therapy, but for convenience it also includes other components that are used from the beginning of the cycle and are not formally part of SCT.
Goals of post-cycle therapy
The body’s hormonal system
Restore the natural hormonal background – maintain the achieved level of muscle mass
Combat the withdrawal phenomenon.
Prevention of feminization (gynecomastia).
Prevention of testicular atrophy and oligospermia
Prevention and reduction of other adverse effects
Main components of PCT
Anti-estrogens are divided into two categories:
Aromatase inhibitors (letrozole, anastrozole, etc.) – during treatment to prevent estrogenic effects if aromatizing drugs (testosterone, stanone, methandrostenolone, and very weakly boldenone and fluoxymesterone) are used. Many consider Proviron to be a weak aromatase inhibitor.
Estrogen receptor blockers (tamoxifen, clomiphene) or Toremifene – 2-3 weeks after stopping treatment to restore testosterone self-regulation. These drugs play a key role and are very important. They are used after all types of courses.
Chorionic Gonadotropin – allows testicular atrophy and inhibition of Leydig cell desensitization. It is used in severe treatment lasting more than 6 weeks. Injection begins in the 2nd to 4th week of treatment (or in the last 3-5 weeks) and continues until discontinuation of the anabolic drug, after which it is switched to estrogen receptor blockers.
Cabergoline (Dostinex) is an inhibitor of prolactin secretion. It is used to treat progestin drugs (nandrolone, trenbolone) that increase prolactin levels, causing most of the side effects of these drugs. It is usually taken at a dose of 0.25 mg every 4 days during treatment.
