Trenbolone, also known as Tren, is an anabolic steroid used by bodybuilders with striking results. It is normally taken as part of a cycle – the 'Tren cycle' – in combination with other drugs. Tren is mostly used by those who have taken steroids before, as it is a potent drug with notable side-effects. For more information regarding this drug, and the types of Tren cycles bodybuilders use, read on.

Part 1: What Is Tren cycle?

The Tren cycle is one of most effective anabolic steroid cycles you can take. It can be used for both bulking (building muscle) and cutting (losing fat). But whatever your aim for your body, there is a type of Tren cycle for enhancing your performance, as Tren has almost all the properties of other performance enhancers. It can help you achieve a larger physique, get a stronger body, and become more lean, hard and defined.

Part 2: Periods of Tren Cycles


​Basic Tren Cycle

Tren is not for beginners, so only try Tren cycles if you have used anabolic steroids before. Tren cycles need to be stacked with testosterone, as Tren more or less completely inhibits natural testosterone production within the body.


​Advanced Tren Cycle

 If you have previously taken Tren, and have tolerated it well, you may wish to increase the Tren dosage to produce better effects. In advanced regimes, Tren is used in overlapping cycles.

Part 3: Sample Tren Cycles

There are many different Tren cycles you can use; the following is only a small sample. All these cycles are based on the trenbolone acetate (tren ace) version of the drug, which is the most efficient, the easiest to obtain, and the simplest to use. Adjust the Tren dosage, along with the doses of other drugs, to meet your own needs; you can extend the duration of each regime if you can tolerate it.

  • Weeks 1-6: 25mg Dianabol daily

Part 4: Benefits & Side Effects of Trenbolone


​Benefits of Trenbolone

One of the main advantages of the Tren cycle is that the Trenbolone is not converted by the body into estrogens; therefore you are unlikely to experience side-effects such as breast development, oily skin, and acne. Furthermore, on a milligram per milligram basis, Trenbolone is more effective than testosterone. Finally, Trenbolone is not metabolized into dihydrotestosterone or estrogenic compounds (e.g. estradiol) by 5α-reductase or aromatase enzymes.


​Side Effects of Trenbolone

  • Worsening of male pattern baldness.

  • Insomnia.

  • Rise in blood pressure.

  • Heavy sweating, including at night.

  • Decreased aerobic function - this drug is not suitable for endurance athletes.

  • The appearance of 'Tren cough', where the individual experiences a metal taste in the mouth and chest tightness, followed by acute coughing.

Remember that this drug is not suitable for women, and it is illegal in the USA. If you are worried about your steroid use, make an appointment with your doctor.

    As far as I know a professional well calculated advanced cycle should be higher in Tren and Test low just to mimic what your own body produce since Tren will kill ur endogenous levels of test in ur body, so yes John it's absolutely right
  • TJul.26 12:50
    I agree with John but hope they meant week 1-6. Even to bring it back after 4 weeks is a little crazy. @Darren I took higher doses of test than tren but apparently the tren sides are better if the test dose is lower.
  • JohnApr.29 19:47
    the tren doses are far too low. it should be about 100mg tren a every other day and 250mg test e a week, tren is more potent than test so let the tren do the work and keep the test at low dose. test is there to keep you up and running and high tren so it can do its magic without high test taking over. and dianabols 50mg a day for 16 weeks?? thats liver failure right there. it shouldnt be done for more than 8 weeks! and a liver supplement like liv52 should be taken before bed to help your liver recover, also prolactin sides will need to be managed by taking cabergoline.

    @ : So you're saying 350mg/wk tTren and just 250 test??! Basic ruleis to always keep test higher than anything else
