Tren" is short for trenbolone, one of the most powerful anabolic steroids in the world, both in terms of gains and side effects. Trenbolone is an injectable anabolic used to gain large amounts of lean muscle mass and strength while enhancing fat loss.
Trenbolone is also unique in that it is a "dry" compound, unlike other steroids for gaining muscle mass, which are usually "wet." This means that trenbolone does not convert to estrogen, so users do not experience water retention or fat accumulation during the cycle.
However, these negative effects are almost certain to occur with cyclic use, such as Anadrol or Dianabol.
Trenbolone is also a versatile compound and can be used as a steroid to reduce or increase body weight.
The two most popular forms of trenbolone are enanthate and acetate. Although they are essentially the same compound, they have different esters. Trenbolone acetate is made up of short esters, while enanthate is made up of longer esters.
This means that acetate acts faster than enanthate, and therefore cycles can be shorter. Trenbolone acetate is also eliminated from the body faster than enanthate, which gives it a longer half-life.
Any trenbolone cycle will cause some problems for users (simply because of the tren). The main risks of this cycle are severe testosterone suppression after the cycle and the risk of high blood pressure.
Thus, it is necessary to perform a PKT to start the endogenous testosterone to normal levels.
Androgenic side effects are almost certain, as Tren and test have strong androgenic properties. These can manifest as oily skin, acne, hair loss, or difficulty urinating.
Oily skin is not a cause for concern, but acne can be severe and extreme in those who are genetically predisposed to it. Hair loss, thinning or scalp recession is common with these two steroids due to elevated levels of DHT (which causes damage to hair follicles).
If cycles are used infrequently, hair loss may be reversible after a cycle; however, if someone uses these steroids aggressively for a long time, hair loss may be permanent.
Prostate enlargement can be indicated by difficulty urinating, which can occur while taking this cycle.
Gynecomastia is possible while taking this cycle because of testosterone aromatization. Thus, high estrogen levels can cause breast tissue enlargement in men.
Progesterone can cause estrogen-like effects, but anti-estrogens are usually effective in treating the side effects of high progesterone.
