Trenbolone Side Effects: Night Sweats And Reduced Cardio Capacity

Although there are people who take Trenbolone and have no side effects at all, there are others who use it and face unpleasant side effects, such as extreme night sweats. Although those who suffer of such side effects consider the results worth it, despite the unpleasant, extreme sweats, they were still wondering whether these issues are normal or not. Also, those people facing such issues were wondering whether they will always suffer of these side effects or not.

Elucidation
The trenbolone users have complaint many times about its side effects, which mainly included less cardiac as well as night sweats. However, these are not generally met effects, which mean that not every user of trenbolone has them, although there are many who accused such side effects in their case.

The cardiovascular problem is mainly associated with eminent hematocrit. This happens in some of the cases of trenbolone users who accused this issue as a result of their trenbolone use. As it has already been established, athletes who participated in utmost level of viable cycling have sought great hematocrit stages. The high levels of hematocrit helped them by sustaining the bigger power productivity, which means they developed a better cardio performance.

Further explanation
However, this cardio performance due to the high levels of hematocrit is not a universal regulation. This can also cause higher blood viscosity or greater blood thickness, when it comes along with:

- Higher oxygen transporting capacity

- Higher hematocrit

Other examples
It has been established that even if the hematocrit levels remain in the usual limits, according to one study, the aerobic ability of some athletes can be better with mid-range otherwise low-midrange hematocrit levels, rather than with the high-usual hematocrit values.

It is possible that during an anabolic steroid cycle, the hematocrit level goes drastically above the normal range. As far as the anabolic steroid user observes a negative side effect of this drug, it is recommended that he checks the hematocrit level, as this may be the cause that determines the apparition of such side effects. If the hematocrit level is around 53 or even higher, then it is highly recommended that the user discontinues the use of anabolic steroid for the moment.

Other problems
However, in the case the hematocrit level is in the normal range, there is no answer to explain the lessen cardiac capacity. In such case, there were people claiming that lung pain could be one of the factors that determine this reduced cardio capacity. For this cause, however, it is needed to consult further medical evidence, as this is not one of the known causes by users of trenbolone.

Dosage limitation
In order to avoid or deal with this cardio issue that might be caused by the use of trenbolone, some users get to limit their dosage of trenbolone for 50mg/day instead of 75mg/day or 100mg/day. The Trenbolone is an effective steroid, so that 50mg/day of trenbolone offers amazing effects as a fraction of a steroid stack.

About night sweats
As for the problem regarding the night sweats, there is no explanation, as it seems to only strike randomly, which means that not every trenbolone user suffers from this side effect. It also depends in the case of the similar person, as it might occur in some cycles, while it may not occur in others. The only recommendation that can help avoid the night sweats as much as possible is to get the room as cool as it is possible. Also, the user who faces this issue, may also use beach towels in order to sop up the sweat.

Best anabolics and anti-estrogens for fat loss

Losing fat is a common goal for most of bodybuilders. For this purpose many of steroid users look for the anabolics with best fat burning features and anti-estrogens that helps to keep water retention and bloating low or even inexistent.

A general tendency is to divide steroids into two categories: bulking and cutting anabolics. An inaccurate approach as none of steroids is labeled as serving just one purpose. Indeed, some of them can be better of cutting, while others excel at packing one muscle mass. But in the final, with the proper manipulation any of them can be used for more than one goal.

“Manipulations” suppose diet, workout routine which accompanies the steroid cycle. Or without a diet/workout that support your fat burning goal no or minimal results will be achieved.  Losing fat is a lot about diet, cardio and then steroids. Try to get leaner without steroids, but if you decide to use – make it wisely.

Dosing is also relevant for to attaining one or another goal. Bulking and cutting dosing of the same steroid is different and has to be set accordingly to the way you want to look in the final of cycling. Usually, for cutting purpose a higher dose is recommended. The higher is the dosage, the more ICF-hormone is released and a more powerful fat burning process is triggered.

It is a well known fact that body burns more calories to keep muscle mass than fat. That’s why when being when a calorie deficit body begins to pull energy from fat deposits. The more muscular you are, the faster you burn fat and viceversa.

Low-aromatization steroids for getting shredded

Not all steroids have low estrogenic activity. The more androgenic it is, the greater estrogenic activities it shows. Body is able to assimilate a certain amount of testosterone. With chemicals this threshold goes pretty high, so that anything above this level may be turned into estrogen. The process is called aromatase and especially occurs if you are already susceptible to this.

High estrogens cause water retention and slow rate of fat burning. In order to prevent this use of anti-estrogen is necessary. But about anti-estrogens we will talk later. Now let’s concentrate our attention on steroids for fat loss.

Top 4 non-aromatazing steroids are:

Trenbolone

Primobolan

Winstrol

Masteron

This list can be completed with:

Halotestin

Equipoise

Deca

Have to be mentioned that these steroids may aromatase if you are genetically predisposed to higher estrogenic activity.

Being sensitive to estrogenic side effects limits you in using anbolics that do aromatase. All other people can use aromatase steroids with less or almost no negative impact on their health. Of course with condition that minimal dosage of anti-estrogens is taken.

Trenbolone

This is a powerful steroid with no estrogenic activity and water retention side effects. It’s great for keeping on muscle mass and strength while dosage is moderate-200 mg weekly. If there is a “best cutting steroids” then surely this is about Trenbolone.

All forms of Tren are efficient in burning fat; however Tren-A or Trenbolone-Acetate have been actively recognized as the most effective.

Equipoise

Has good fat burning action with low estrogenic activity.  EQ cause a high nitrogen activity so that even in a calorie deficit an increase of muscle mass will be registered.

A 400mg per week of EQ is a safe dose, allowing reaching a shredded look within weeks of usage.

Anavar

If you want a safe fat burning steroid then Anavar has to be your choice. Free of any side effects, Anavar helps to retain strength, and hence muscle mass. Especially good it is for burning abdominal fat. It also raises the good cholesterol in the body and lowers the bad one.

A 20-30 mg of Anavar per day is required to burn fat. It is not a low dosage, but the real problem is that Anavar is more difficult to find.

Winstrol

This is another oral quite effective in burning fat. It speeds up metabolism and enhances body’s ability to retain muscle mass and strength. For more details about Winstrol effects in fat burning read our post “How effective is Winstrol for burning fat”.

Anti-estrogens to use when juicing

At least two anti-estrogens have to be taken even you are not prone to estrogen and water retention. Proviron and Arimidex or Provirion with Nolvadex if you are estrogen sensitive. The general idea is that you cannot take fat loss steroids without anti-estrogens even you are not susceptible.

The most important with fat loss steroids is responsible use. As long as you respecting proper dosage and use antiestrogens you are on the way to your perfect body. This post is informative. Please consult a specialist before getting involved in steroids use.

Masteron or Drostonolone Propionate

Masteron is also known, as drostonolone and  is relatively rare in the United States. Though it is well known to the Europeans. The production of Masteron was never of a large quantity and it was never before marketed in the United States.

Masteron History:

Masteron (drostonolone propionate) for 20 years prior was used for inoperable postmenopausal breast cancer in women, then later as a cutting agent used by bodybuilders, which where it is now enjoying its popularity.

What it is:

Drostonolone propionate is a DHT (dihydrotestosteronethe) a derived anabolic ( abiological process of making more complex living organisms from simpler ones) Drostonolone has been altered by the addition of a methyl group. This addition prevents the hormone from a metabolic breakdown by 3 skeletal muscle properties ofHydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzymes.

It also increases the anabolic nature of the hormone as well as the attachment of proplonate ester to control the release time. Masteron is unaffected by the aromatase and 5alpha reductase – enzyme and thereby leaves no estrogen issues, particularly with the increase or lessening of estrogen in the skin and prostrate.

The true effects of Masteron will be best seen in a lean person, during the cutting cycle. This is why Masteron is generally in use at the end of the bodybuilding prep. It is expected that the bodybuilder will at this point be extremely lean.

A benefit when using Masteron, is its influence on anti-estrogen is when using in moderate doses of aromatizing steroids and not with typical doses of Masteron, there is no competition between the estradiol at the estrogen receptor and the receptor is not activated by the Masteron.

However, by competing with the testosterone for the “binding site” of the aromatase enzyme the conversion is indeed reduced.

It would be wrong to leave this the only reason as to what makes Masteron good. Masteron is low in side effectsas an anabolic steroid. At one point it was considered a weak steroid however, it has since been recognized as an anabolic of standard potency.

Masteron provides more of an aesthetically pleasing enhancement. Meaning that it does not provide strength, performance or size.

Why the doubt of potency:

If a low dose is used weekly as would occur with most anabolic steroids this product does not perform well.

The general concentration of Masteron that is given is that of 350 mg per week as provided. In some cases smaller doses are given. 700 mg. per week provides a more satisfactory performance.

However, a major problem with this dose is the availability and the cost of the product.

Dosages:

Dosages are based on a number of factors, for the body builder dosage once becoming lean the dosage can be as high as 1000 mg. per week. However, this dosage is not recommended for those who have health problems such as lipid issues or blood pressure problems.

The dosage of 1000 mg. per week is only recommended for those on a 1 – 2 week cycle.

• The traditional cycle ranges from 1 – 12 weeks long. It is a combination of enanthate testosterone at 300 – 500 mg. per week
• Masteron (Drostonolone Enanthate a Masteron variant) at 400 mg. per week.

This variant is used for the beginner due to several reasons;
• Combines perfectly with the enanthate testosterone
• Compensates for the infrequent scheduling of injections
• The testosterone is used in the body building dosages in this case.
• This dose of Masteron will provide the user with familiarity of his reactions to Masteron.

Because of the aromatase inhibitor in Masteron, it should be unnecessary to use an addition aromatase inhibitor. Masteron is not as strong as such inhibitors as aromasin or arimidex but, should the stacking of aromatizable become too large, the aromatase effect of Masteron will be unable to handle it.

Gynecomastia has been a reported effect during a cycle using Masteron along with such aromatizable compounds such as Dianabol and Testosterone.

What is the Ideal Steroid Dosage to Maximize Fat Loss?

How high a dose of anabolic steroids needed for good acceleration of fat loss?

Even the 500 mg/week dosage level, as a total of all the steroids used in the stack, is sufficient for substantial improvement in fat loss compared to the natural state. There’s some further improvement as the dosage increases to about the 1000 mg/week level.

In a few cases there have been remarkable results with quite low dosages, such as 250 mg/week testosterone or even 9 mg/day Dianabol (as odd as that number is, the specific case really was that amount.) However, that’s unusual, and appears to be correlated with the individuals having somewhat low natural testosterone. Generally, 500 mg/week is a reasonable minimum for a fat-loss steroid cycle.

Whether to lose fat first and then gain muscle, or do it the other way around, will depend on the case. A simple rule of thumb though is to accomplish the personally-easier task first.

For example, if you know you can drop 10 lb of fat relatively easily but adding 10 lb of muscle will be a challenge, then by all means lose the fat in the first few weeks of the cycle, preferably with quite high volume training. Your body will then be in a highly responsive state for muscle gain in the following weeks, due both to the previous high volume training and due to a homeostatic tendency to return to previous weight, in this case with muscle gain. More importantly than any reason why, this simply has been found to work very well.

Or if on the other hand if you find it hard to get much leaner than your present condition but you know you can add the planned amount of muscle in a matter of weeks, then add the muscle first. This will aid in the following fat loss, both because the added muscle increases metabolic rate, and again because of a homeostatic tendency to return to accustomed weight, in this case with fat loss. And again, regardless of reason, this too works very well in practice.

Gaining muscle while losing fat simultaneously can be done, but generally isn’t the optimal approach. Being a possible unintended outcome in some training scenarios, where very intensive programs with intent of maximum strength gains might result in some fat loss despite best efforts at sufficient eating. But as a deliberate plan, most times wouldn’t aim to accomplish both fat loss and muscle gain at the same time in a steroid cycle.

How to Use Proviron with Steroid Cycles and PCT

How to use Proviron (mesterolone) during steroid cycles, during PCT (post-cycle therapy), and between cycles?

Proviron has no use for anabolic or recovery purposes. It does not aid in building muscle and does not aid in recovering LH production or testosterone production.

It’s an odd fact that it doesn’t aid in building muscle. It’s the only compound of which activates the androgen receptor yet is valueless in this regard. The reason probably is metabolic deactivation in muscle tissue.

What’s not odd is that it’s valueless for helping recovery of natural LH or of testosterone production. No anabolic steroid is able to provide assistance in these regards: instead their effect is generally inhibitory.

There’s disagreement as to whether Proviron simply doesn’t help recover natural hormone levels or whether it actually impedes recovery.

Its effect on LH is difficult to determine because any effect it may have on LH is at most moderate, but LH levels always vary greatly from moment-to-moment. So, if a measurement is a little lower when Proviron is used, is it because Proviron lowered LH, or because the blood draw happened to be at a trough value between blood peaks?

This is quite difficult to determine. One study about 40 or more years ago detected an inhibitory effect on LH levels from 50 mg Proviron per day. The reduction was statistically significant, but levels still averaged in the normal range. On the other hand, a number of scientific studies since have been unable to detect effect of Proviron on LH to statistical significance.

While that probably sounds like a contradiction, not detecting effect to statistical significance is different from detecting that there is no effect.

Unfortunately, authors typically write that there “was” no effect rather than put the matter accurately.

It’s fair to say from the total body of scientific evidence that any inhibitory effect of Proviron on LH production is at most modest. When fully recovered from a cycle, any inhibitory effect from occasional use is of no importance.

During PCT however, was found that Proviron use makes a noticeable adverse difference on recovery.

Proviron formerly had some use during cycles as a weak anti-estrogen, but today, using an anti-aromatase is a much better approach.

Where Proviron can provide a use is in the feeling of having good androgen levels, and in enhancing erectile performance in some instances. In terms of physical appearance, sometimes it can enhance apparent hardness or vascularity.

It’s fine to use Proviron occasionally between cycles, if enjoying its use for any reason. There’s no exact needed dose, but for example 50 mg is a typical dose to take occasionally. There’s no harm to taking amount such as 100 or 150 mg, but there’s not necessarily further benefit from the larger dose.

Anabolic Steroids Cycles for a Basic Training Program

Want to accelerate results with steroid use? What sort of cycles go best?


An obvious advantage of 8-week cycles is that there will be a lot of gratification acquired quickly. If we compared with 2-week on, 4-week off cycles, it would typically take 14 weeks to get results similar to what could be achieved in 8 weeks straight.

But on the other hand, with the two-week cycles, progress would continue straight on from there, whereas with the eight-week cycles, there will be a 16 week gap before being able to continue again! This is if making an equal comparison where steroids are being used 1/3 of the time, where there are two “off” weeks to each week of use. It also works the same way in any equal comparison.

So which is “better” is not so obvious as at first glance. Your choice will depend on personal preference.

However, in general the two week cycles are very suited to basic progressive training, where there is no real pattern to training weeks. This is because such a program is really helped by the shorter “off” periods, and there’s very good carryover from the gains of the “on” weeks to the “off” weeks.

If taking the advice on 2-week cycles, I would however suggest putting at least a little bit of pattern onto the training weeks though. The “on” weeks should preferably be with relatively heavier weight, such as allowing only 5-8 reps, and training volume should be say 30% greater than in most of the “off” weeks.

If choosing the 8-week cycle route, the increased volume consideration would still apply. Your training during “off” weeks could still remain similar, but the optimal training volume will be less than while assisted.

Women on Steroids Myth and Truth

Women on steroids, to many those three little words sound ridiculous; for many the idea of women on steroids is nothing short of a disaster waiting to happen. However, when it comes to anabolic androgenic steroids we have a topic that is one of the most highly misunderstood and quite often spoken of in a highly disapproving light regardless of who such a discussion pertains to and in that light more often than not inaccurate assumptions are made of a highly inaccurate nature. Many will indeed be surprised to learn women do in-fact supplement with anabolic steroids; sure, we’re all familiar with those who do so of a highly extreme end, those who have sacrificed all femininity for mounds of muscle but the reality does not stop there.

Year after year, every single day many women supplement with anabolic steroids; many of the women highly admired for their beauty who possess a fit and healthy look supplement quite regularly; we’re not speaking of a small number, in-fact we’re speaking of a fairly large number. Many female athletes from all walks of like regularly take part in the anabolic game and for good reason, it works but it remains this is a fact most are not willing to accept. Make no mistake, women on steroids pales in comparison to men who supplement with anabolic hormones but the numbers of female users far extends past what most understand.

There is no doubt about it, anabolic androgenic steroid use can be very damaging to a female but when a woman is educated on the matter and responsible use is implored use can be very successful. For women on steroids the biggest risk is virilization by-which masculine traits are brought forth. For any female this is a horrific end as a large part of our personal identity is connected to our sex and the attributes associated with it; however, this horrific end can largely be avoided.

For years many myths and legends have existed regarding anabolic androgenic steroids and the use thereof but it’s important to remember myths and legends are just that, myths and legends, meaning they are absent of truth. While some of these myths may hold some truth to them in-part unless the full truth is explained the rest of the assumption is either a lie or simple ignorance. Such assumptions can be seen on a host of message boards that deal in the topic of anabolic androgenic steroids; for years many have gone to such message boards to obtain anabolic information and while there is good information on many of them there are often just as many half-truths and inaccurate assumptions. We have taken some of the most common myths and outright lies from some of the most popular message boards on the internet that deal in such discussion regarding women on steroids and left you with only the truth. While you’ll find there is still much more to learn hopefully you’ll find this to not only be an interesting starting point but one that urges you to seek the truth.

Myth: Masculine traits will occur in women on steroids and it’s largely unavoidable.
Truth: While many anabolic androgenic steroids will produce such an effect there are certain steroids that can be used both effectively and safely without such an effect occurring. Most notably is the steroid Oxandrolone or as it is more commonly known Anavar. Most women will find Anavar to not only be highly effective but to possess little to no side-effects whatsoever. Women on steroids who make Anavar a stable part of their plan will find they build a leaner and tighter physique that still possesses all the femininity they began with.

Myth: Women on steroids will gain massive amounts of weight and turn into gigantic piles of muscle.
Truth: For some women such an end is desired and if so then absolutely, it can be obtained. However, anabolic steroid use will not by itself produce this end in a woman any more than it will for a man. This is a common misconception regarding anabolic steroids as a whole but one that is often used to scare women away. In order to be big you have to eat big; steroids or not this is an inescapable fact. Women on steroids who do not follow a mass gaining diet will not blowup into behemoths by any stretch; sure, they may indeed possess more lean muscle tissue but lean muscle tissue is a good thing. Lean tissue not only lends to a healthier body but one that is more appealing; the amounts of such tissue will be highly regulated by the amounts of food you take in but the doses of the steroids will also play a role. Women who are looking for a nice athletic boost in-terms of function or appearance can reach this end through steroid use and take it as far as they want from very slight to very extreme and everywhere in-between.

Myth: Most of the women on steroids are competitive bodybuilders.
Truth: Most of the women on steroids are not competitive bodybuilders at all; however, physique sports do make up a large portion of the total users. Many and by many we mean a whole lot of figure, fitness and bikini competitors of the physique world supplement with anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. Such use however by no means ends with physique competition but stretches to non-competitive fitness models to many of the celebrities the world loves and adores to some of the women you find attractive at your local super market who simply enjoy working out. There is a very good reason many women are able to hold onto a more youthful appeal and maintain a more well-rounded healthy look in far greater numbers and for far longer extended periods of time and it’s not some magical machine they step into; it is undisputedly performance enhancing drugs and anabolic steroids make up a large portion of this group.
