This is the most popular Trenbolone cycle, given the fact Testosterone is a mild compound and can be easily stacked to significantly enhance gains — without dramatically worsening Tren’s side effects.
Muscle and strength gains on this cycle are likely to be exceptional, with minimal water retention; thus making it a very aesthetic bulking cycle.
Testosterone is also an injectable steroid, thus it doesn’t pose any extra strain on the liver.
Testosterone is also one of, if not the best steroids for the heart; with it only having a mild effect on LDL/HDL cholesterol levels. Thus, as far as Trenbolone stacks go — this is the safest.
Any Trenbolone cycle will cause some issues for users (simply because of the tren). The main risks with this cycle are severe testosterone suppression post-cycle and the risk of high blood pressure.
Thus, the outlined PCT must be implemented to kick-start endogenous testosterone back to normal levels again.
Androgenic side effects are almost certain, as Tren and test both have strong androgenic properties. This may be in the form of oily skin, acne, hair loss, or difficulty urinating.
Oily skin isn’t anything to be concerned about; however, acne can be severe and extreme in users who are genetically susceptible to this. Hair loss, thinning or recession on the scalp is common when using these two steroids, due to heightened levels of DHT (causing damaged hair follicles).
If cycles are used sparingly, such hair loss may be reversed post-cycle; however, if someone aggressively utilizes these steroids long-term; such hair loss may be permanent.
Prostate enlargement can be signified by difficulty urinating, which may occur when taking this cycle.
Gynecomastia is possible in this cycle, due to the testosterone aromatizing. Thus, high estrogen levels may cause breast tissue to enlarge in males.
Trenbolone can also cause gynecomastia, albeit not from a rise in estrogen — but progesterone.
Progesterone can cause estrogen-like effects; however. an anti-estrogen is usually effective in treating high progesterone side effects.
A SERM would usually be used (such as Clomid or Nolvadex) to prevent gyno from Testosterone, however in this case it would exacerbate progesterone levels — increasing the chance of gynecomastia from the Trenbolone.
Thus, an anti-estrogen would be the best option for counteracting the chances of enlarged breast tissue. However, there is a drawback with anti-estrogens, as they have the power to reduce HDL cholesterol and increase blood pressure.
This is bad news, considering blood pressure is already likely to be high during this cycle.
Therefore, one strategy would be to have an anti-estrogen ready if you start to notice swollen nipples. As soon as you start experiencing the early stages of gyno, you can start running Letrozole in the dosages stated above.
This will help to reverse the swelling and prevent any further enlargement of breast tissue. However, running letrozole before experiencing any gyno issues, is just going to place excess strain on the heart.
Winstrol is an oral steroid, that’s also a powerful compound like Trenbolone (although to a lesser degree).
Winstrol also has muscle-building and fat-burning attributes that occur simultaneously; perfect for a dramatic transformation.
Zac Efron’s before/after transformation for the movie Baywatch is typical after running a Winstrol-only cycle.
Thus, once you throw Trenbolone into the equation — this makes for a truly powerful cycle.
This duo can be utilized as a cutting cycle, where users eat in a calorie deficit. Or it can be used as a lean-mass building cycle, where users eat maintenance calories (or in a small surplus).
Users can rapid fat loss, whilst also building noticeable amounts of muscle and strength.
Those who aren’t experienced steroid users will have big gains — regarding muscle mass. Whereas, experienced steroid users will be less sensitive through years of cycles and will experience milder gains.
Many people who lift weights want to build muscle and burn fat at the same time — but often hear that it’s impossible. Such myths become a reality with a Trenbolone/Winstrol cycle; where there are no better compounds for making your waist smaller and muscles bigger simultaneously.
Both trenbolone and Winstrol do not aromatize, thus water retention won’t be an issue — resulting in a ripped and dried-out physique instead, with enhanced vascularity.
If you want to look as shredded as possible and you’re already lean, this would be the ideal cycle to run; as it’ll flush out the water that collects outside of the muscles — resulting in a paper-thin skin look.
Winstrol or Trenbolone certainly aren’t examples of ‘light’ steroids.
When combined, they’ll cause a host of side effects, particularly to the heart and liver.
With Winstrol being a C17-alpha-alkylated steroid it will cause liver strain, whilst decreasing HDL cholesterol and raising LDL through the stimulation of hepatic lipase. All of this combined with a lack of aromatization will cause potential damage to the heart. Thus, cardio should be regularly performed, to prevent large spikes in blood pressure.
Note: Regular cardio will also enhance fat loss.
Winstrol should only be taken for 8 weeks (maximum), due to its toxic effects on the liver.
Winstrol, although not androgenic, does cause androgenic effects in practical environments; therefore acne, oily skin, and hair loss are to be expected when combined with Trenbolone.
Gynecomastia is unlikely in this cycle, with Winstrol not converting to estrogen and having almost zero progesterone activity. Thus, the only threat of gyno is with Trenbolone, which moderately increases progesterone. However, this is one of the better cycles for avoiding man boobs.
Users may also experience some joint pain, due to the amount of water being expelled by the body. Such fluid is needed as lubrication to protect the joints.
Testosterone suppression is going to be significant post-cycle, requiring a strong PCT.
The combination of Trenbolone and Anavar makes for a very effective cutting cycle.
Anavar is a mild steroid, hence how it’s successfully been used in medicine for treating women and small children (without damaging effects).
Anavar’s an oral, thus it’s preferred by users who don’t want to inject.
Anavar will increase fat burning, whilst increasing lean muscle mass and strength.
Users are unlikely to gain a lot of muscle mass with the addition of Anavar; however, there will still be a noticeable difference in muscle hypertrophy by the end of a cycle.
Surprisingly, Anavar is a very effective compound for enhancing strength, despite it not promoting much weight gain. This may be attributed to it being a DHT-derivative and having a positive effect on ATP in the muscle cells.
Thus, this is the perfect cutting cycle for bodybuilders worried about losing strength during a cut.
The results from this cycle will be similar to Winstrol/Trenbolone; however, Anavar is less powerful than Winstrol; therefore the gains will be slightly less (and the side effects more tolerable).
Anavar’s effect on strength however may surpass Winstrol’s.
A Tren/Anavar cycle is one of the mildest Trenbolone cycles you can do — second to Tren/Testosterone.
An Anavar-only cycle is considered very safe. Unfortunately, with the addition of Trenbolone, all safety goes out the window.
All of the side effects associated with Trenbolone will apply, but with extra testosterone suppression and a higher rise in blood pressure.
This certainly isn’t the worst cycle for testosterone suppression, thus Nolvadex and Clomid should be sufficient for resurrecting test levels; without the addition of hCG.
Although Anavar is an oral steroid, it doesn’t cause much liver strain; it also being processed by the kidneys. Thus, the risk of serious liver damage in this cycle should be considered low. However, TUDCA may still be taken as a precaution.
Anavar doesn’t aromatize or increase progesterone, so there is no additional risk of gynecomastia.
Some additional androgenic side effects are possible.
The top 5 most common trenbolone cycles are:
Depending on an individual’s tolerance, they may be able to take all of these stacks or none.
Some of these Trenbolone cycles are extremely harsh and will almost certainly damage the body — at least in the short term.
Note: Trenbolone can be taken by itself and still produce exceptional gains.
It can also be cycled with other steroids not included in this article, such as Dianabol and Deca Durabolin; however such combinations are less common, due to them having conflicting attributes.
For example, Deca is usually taken in mild bulking cycles, to add a little more size whilst keeping dangerous side effects at bay. Dianabol may be stacked with Tren; however, it often causes bloating and thus counteracts Trenbolone’s diuretic properties (similar to Anadrol).
