When people learn how effective Trenbolone is at building muscle, they tend to believe they should use it continuously to keep on seeing benefits. Unfortunately, steroids do not work that way. Trenbolone cycles are needed in order for you to enjoy the benefits and reduce the risk of side effects. What are Trenbolone cycles and how do they work? Read on to find out more.
What are Trenbolone Cycles?
Steroid cycles refer to a period of use known as an “on” period, which is followed by a time of non-use. The “on” and “off” periods are about the same length. Cycles also increase in length as a user becomes accustomed to taking steroids. The purpose of a rest period is to allow the body to recover from using steroids. Some slight decrease in gain may be noticed during this time; however, they are minimal so long as a good diet and exercise program are followed.
Cutting vs. Bulking Cycles
A cycle may be primarily used for cutting or bulking purposes. The two vary in their length and in the other types of steroids that may be stacked with them. An example of a cutting cycle would be:
- Taking 75mg of Trenbolone every other day for a period of 8 weeks (beginning cycle)
- 75mg of Trenbolone every other day for a period of 12 weeks, in addition to testosterone (intermediate cycle)
- Adding Anadrol during weeks one through four of a 12-week cycle (more advanced cycle)
A common bulking cycle might involve taking 100mg of Trenbolone every day or every other day for a period of up to 18 weeks, in addition to:
- Adding Dianabol during weeks 1 through 6
- Using Deca-Durabolin for the first ten weeks
- Including higher doses of testosterone for the entire length of the cycle
Trenbolone cycles should gradually increase in length during each one. Users should begin with the shortest cycle time possible before moving to an intermediate or advanced cycle. For example, a first cycle may be eight weeks long, a second one may last 12 weeks, and a third be 18 weeks. It’s important to gradually increase cycle time to ensure people are able to tolerate increased levels of steroids in their bodies.
Users should also avoid stacking steroids during the first few cycles. The body must gradually become accustomed to taking steroids, so adding too many at one time may be harmful. Only those steroids that are known to interact well with Trenbolone should be used during any cycle.
Each person may notice different results during each subsequent cycle. If the expected results are not achieved, it might be best to try a new stack or switch to a completely different steroid altogether. Stop your cycle immediately if you notice unusual side effects.
Trenbolone cycles should be carefully planned by someone who is familiar with steroids and how they work. Ideally, this will be a physician, sports nutrition professional, or athletic trainer who is aware of your goals and understands your health history well.
