While tremendously beneficial to the cutting phase and often considered essential to competitive bodybuilders during contest prep, Trenbolone Acetate is also a phenomenal off-season bulking steroid . When we refer to this hormonal compound as versatile, that is truly an accurate statement. There are very few anabolic steroids that can promote mass like Trenbolone Acetate. More importantly, the effects of Trenbolone Acetate in this regard are not only strong but are far cleaner than most traditional bulking steroids. This hormone will not and cannot promote water retention, meaning each and every pound of weight gained due to use will be lean muscle mass. Of equal importance will be this steroid’s ability to help the individual control fat gain during a period of growth. To achieve true growth, this will require total caloric intake to be slightly above maintenance levels. How far above will vary from one man to the next, and while many often take it too far, this phase will still require a slight surplus. Unfortunately, this necessary surplus will promote body fat gains but due to the metabolic factors that surround Trenbolone Acetate they will be minimized. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, you can still gain a lot of fat if you continually gorge but you should be able to make better use of your total caloric intake. Those who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate during off-season periods of growth should gain less body fat than they would have without it.
Other possible side effects of Tren include hair-loss, high blood pressure, acne and even headaches but there are things that must be said. Hair-loss will only occur in men who are predisposed; simply put this means you were going to lose your hair anyway, the Trenbolone hormone simply sped the process up. In many ways we can say the same thing about acne; men who are not predisposed to acne, who keep their skin clean and generally don't have issues to begin with will more than likely be fine; however, while rare some who are not acne prone will still fall prey. Blood pressure and headaches, this is in many cases also individually based; men who are predisposed to high blood pressure should in most cases avoid supplementing with this hormone. However, high blood pressure and headaches can still occur in some men, even those who do not have a predisposition towards high blood pressure. In many cases when these side effects of Tren occur it is due to the dose being too high; not always but the strong majority of the time.
