What is Trenbolone Enanthate (Tren E)?
Trenbolone is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid that was originally developed in the 1960’s to increase the appetite and muscle mass of cattle, while reducing their body fat. Trenbolone Acetate is still commonly used for this purpose today, whereas, Trenbolone Enanthate was never approved for medical or veterinary use. Tren E is solely sold on the black market as a designer steroid. It is three times more powerful than testosterone alone, and is regarded as a “high risk, high reward” steroid that is used by the most elite athletes, bodybuilders, and powerlifters to quickly build muscle, loose fat, and gain strength. Many users report that they are able to build muscle and gain strength faster than any other steroid, with the end result being a lean, hard, defined, vascular, and stronger version of your former self.
The trains of the trenbolone hormone are the same with all of the trenbolone compounds; the main difference between them is in the ester attached to the hormone which controls the speed at which the hormone is released. Trenbolone Enanthate has the longest ester, meaning the release time post-injection will be much slower than the Acetate version; it has a similar half-life to Testosterone Enanthate of 7-10 days. Trenbolone Enanthate is a slightly altered Nandrolone-based compound with an added double bond at carbons 9 and 11. These chemical modifications allow for a stronger resistance to metabolism in the body, allowing maximum anabolic performance in muscle tissue. It carries an anabolic/androgenic rating of 500/500 and is not recommended for use in women.
The side effects from trenbolone differ widely from those of testosterone since trenbolone is not estrogenic in any way; however, trenbolone is highly androgenic and the side effects can be more dangerous and damaging if not dealt with through proper supplementation with other steroids. Some users may experience no negative effects from Tren E, whereas, others may experience acne, accelerated hair loss for those with male pattern baldness, testosterone suppression, high blood pressure, excess body hair growth, and irritability. One thing that is commonly reported among most trenbolone users is that the less desirable side effects that are common with high levels of testosterone or other estrogen-producing steroids (such as gyno, bloating, etc.) are strongly reduced when taking Tren E.
What is the recommended dosage?
The recommended dosage of Tren E varies widely depending on who you talk to. In our opinion, a sensible dosage for most athletes is between 200-800mg per week, divided into two equal injections in the week. A typical cycle will last 8-12 weeks, with a maximum of 20 weeks at higher dosages.
What does Trenbolone Enanthate stack well with?
Tren E stacks well with just about any anabolic steroid due to its versatility in all aspects of steroid use. Tren E is commonly used alongside Testosterone as the two steroids work synergistically to increase muscle building, fat loss, and strength gains. The quick effects and non-estrogenic nature of trenbolone make it highly desirable in many stacks. It is not usually recommended to mix Tren E with Nandrolone as they are both progesterone-based and can cause a buildup of prolactin in the body, however, it may be beneficial in more advanced/long-term cycles. Additions of oral anabolic such as Dianabol, Turinabol, Anavar, Winstrol, or Anadrol with result in extreme size gains.
In the off season, users generally find a stack of Tren E and Testosterone extremely beneficial, with the possible addition of Anadrol or Dianabol.
During the cutting phase, Tren E and Testosterone are again very beneficial, often with a lower dose of testosterone. Additions of Masteron, Equipoise, Winstrol, Anavar, and Primobolan are also welcomed during this phase.
