Trenbolone, otherwise known as Tren is hands down one of the strongest steroids available. You will not find a compound that works like Tren, it has the ability to completely change a physique. People who have experience with this compound will know exactly what I am talking about.
I have decided to write this article because Tren is a compound that should not be treated lightly. I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about Tren.
What Is Trenbolone?
Tren is an anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS). It was first synthesized back in the 1960s. Trenbolone’s main use back then was to help cattle grow as big as possible. That’s right, they injected this stuff into cows so that they could grow like crazy.
This stuff is so incredibly strong that most compounds don’t come anywhere near the strength of trenbolone.
Trenbolone is a Nandrolone derivative. Nandrolone, otherwise known as Deca belongs to the 19-Nor compounds. When you compare Tren to other steroids, milligram for milligram it belongs to the top. To give you an idea, Tren has an anabolic: androgenic ratio of 500 to 500 whilst Testosterone is a 100 to 100. This makes Trenbolone FIVE times stronger than Testosterone.
The fact that Trenbolone is the core compound of every male physique competitor should also tell you enough. Even at low dosages, Tren is able to produce mind-blowing results. The great thing about Trenbolone is that it does not aromatize into estrogen.
The most frequently used ester is Trenbolone Acetate. It’s got a very short half-life of only 2 days.
The other ester is called Trenbolone Enanthate which has a half-life of 7 days.
Why do users seem to prefer Tren Acetate over Tren Enanthate?
Mainly because with Trenbolone Acetate your body seems to absorb most of the compound. If the body is able to almost fully absorb the compound you will get better results.
This means more muscle gains and strength gains. Obviously, if you’re looking to get the most out of your cycle this is what you are after.
Another reason why Trenbolone Acetate is superior to Enanthate is that it kicks in way faster.
Tren ace takes about a week to kick in whilst Enanthate can even take up to 2 or 3 weeks. With Acetate you will be making progress much quicker, you’ll feel it right away.
Most bodybuilders seem to really prefer Trenbolone Acetate over Enanthate. Trenbolone Enanthate, on the other hand, seems to have fewer side effects than Acetate and due to its long half-life, you are looking at weekly injects.
Never use Tren as your first cycle. It’s too strong to be used by inexperienced users. It’s better to go with a compound such as Testosterone for your first AAS cycle.
Most tren cycles will also contain testosterone. You will see most users go for the shorter ester of Test, Testosterone propionate.
Once you are ready for your first tren cycle, I’d suggest going with a very low dosage to see how your body reacts to the compound. Tren acetate also seems to be the better choice for a tren cycle due to the fact that it has better results.
A good dosage for your first tren ride would be 175mg-350mg. This is more than plenty, trust me. In my opinion, less is more with Trenbolone.
Anything between 175 and 350mg of real Trenbolone is more than enough to give you drastic results especially for somebody that has no experience with tren.
Once you have more experience with a tren cycle you could probably up the dosage to 525-700mg if you feel comfortable. You better be one huge fella else you have no reason for jumping on a higher dose of tren.
The highest I see people run tren in a cycle is probably around 700mg.
I would NEVER run Trenbolone at a higher dosage than 700mg.
This is where the diminishing returns start. You’ll find that the sweet spot is probably somewhere between 350 and 525mg per week.
Also, make sure to have Pramipexole (Prami) or Cabergoline (Caber) on hand before starting your tren cycle. These ancillaries are essential to help combat raised prolactin levels.
Perhaps you have also heard of the ‘fitness model stack’, it’s a cycle containing tren acetate, testosterone propionate, and Masteron propionate.
The results you can get from Trenbolone are INSANE. It’s nothing like any other steroid results you will find. Real Tren will make you pack on a ton of muscle and strength within a short period of time.
It’s also one of the most popular compounds amongst bodybuilders and physique competitors.
It gives you a certain look like in the above picture. Tren will make you appear very lean and dry. Besides that, it will also stimulate fat burning whilst building lean muscle.
Due to the Tren’s amazing results, it’s often used as a pre-contest drug for bodybuilders. It’s also very popular amongst fitness models and men’s physique competitors.
Does Trenbolone Burn Fat?
Yes, tren does help burn fat.
It has multiple fat burning properties which will allow you to burn faster way faster than you would so naturally.
It has a very high binding affinity to the androgen receptors which immediately helps you with losing fat.
But the special thing about Tren is that it is able to partition nutrients way more effectively than with other AAS. There’s a bunch of different mechanisms that cause this, mainly having to do with IGF-1 sensitivity. Due to the fact that you are partitioning nutrients very differently, this will eventually result in extra fat loss.
So don’t confuse Tren for a fat burner. A fat burner would be something like ECA Stack, Clenbuterol or a different stimulant. What tren does is it essentially helps you with burning fat but not directly.
Basically, it helps you use fat as an energy source which no other compound is able to do. It is also great at preserving muscle when you are in a caloric deficit, with tren you will pretty much lose zero muscle.

Trenbolone Side Effects
There are serious side effects associated with the use of Trenbolone. Some users seem to have no trouble with trenbolone at all. Whilst others are forced to discontinue use because of the tren side effects. The most common tren side effects are:
- Increased aggression. You’ve probably heard somebody joke about tren rage, but it’s real. The increased aggression is caused due to the fact that Tren has a crazy high androgenic ratio. You will start snapping much faster, even over the smallest things. Some people can be angry on tren every single day, so take this as a warning.
- Increased blood pressure. Tren is known to raise blood pressure so make sure to keep an eye out on your BP. Donate blood if needed and make sure to do plenty of cardio to keep your cardiovascular system healthy.
- Kills Cardio. Even though tren will absolutely kill your cardio you should not stop doing it. It’s also essential to keep your blood pressure within a healthy range.
- Insomnia. This is also a very common issue for most people when using Trenbolone. You will be unable to fall asleep and you won’t feel tired at all. If you do sleep, you’ll probably wake up every few hours and everything starts all over again. Of course, when you don’t get enough sleep this will heavily impact your day to day life. Not everybody seems to experience this tren side effect though.
- Night Sweats. You can start sweating profusely at night.
Keep in mind that these are just a few of the most reported tren side effects. This compound should not be treated lightly, if you don’t know what you are doing you will end up harming yourself.
Make sure to have Post Cycle Therapy on hand once the cycle is over.
It’s also worth mentioning that not everybody seems to experience these tren side effects. Some people even claim that they experience no side effects whatsoever when running trenbolone.
It also depends on whether you have real trenbolone or not. Real tren looks dark gold-ish, like the color of rust. If it’s a yellow color than you probably have fake stuff.

Tren has some side effects but the most notorious one is probably the Tren Cough. Once you inject trenbolone, a small amount of the tren ends up in the blood vessels which causes it to get absorbed by the bloodstream.
Your body will start freaking out because it’s not familiar with this compound.
That’s when you start getting the Tren cough. Basically, you start coughing like crazy and you’ll get the feeling that it never ends.
To be honest, I think it’s not that bad. It only lasts like half a minute to a minute. The best thing you can do is just sit out. Do NOT freak out, it will be over before you even know.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do to prevent the tren cough from happening.
Especially with Trenbolone Acetate, it’s bound to happen due to its short ester and fast absorption. With a longer ester such as Trenbolone Enanthate, you won’t have it as much then with Acetate.
Another precaution you can take is to combine different oils in one syringe. For example, let’s say you are running Tren and Test together in one cycle. What you do is you put both the Testosterone and the Trenbolone in one syringe and doing the injection.
By doing so, you are actually diluting the oil and you will have a less chance of getting the tren cough.
Some users also swear by alcohol swabs. Once they feel the tren cough coming up, they will sniff the alcohol swab to reduce the tren cough. This doesn’t seem to work for everybody though.
