As a result, Trenbolone Acetate now functions as the primary anabolic compound (aka the ‘workhorse’ compound) that will function to provide the muscle growth throughout the cycle. Trenbolone is strictly an advanced level anabolic steroid, unfit for use by beginners of any type. In this cycle, the Acetate variant of Trenbolone is utilized simply due to its seamless compatibility with Testosterone Propionate. This is because the Propionate and Acetate esters as, previously mentioned early on in this section of the profile, both possess almost identical half-lives (3 days for Trenbolone Acetate and days for Testosterone Propionate). This therefore provides an ease of convenience for the user, as well as smoother injection and administration frequencies. The fact that Testosterone is being utilized at a low enough doses to avoid aromatization, combined with the fact that Trenbolone’s inability to convert into Estrogen at any dose should result in the total elimination of any potential water retention, bloating, gynecomastia or any side effects associated with Estrogen . It is important to note that this cycle in particular is strong enough to be utilized as a bulking cycle, lean mass cycle, or cutting cycle – all without the inflated potential for water retention or other Estrogenic side effects.
For the off-season athlete there is no anabolic steroid more important or beneficial than testosterone. High levels of testosterone will promote significant increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This is assuming that the individual is consuming adequate calories. Compounds like Testosterone Propionate are not magical, you will still need to feed your body enough calories. During an off-season period of growth, this means total caloric intake will need to be slightly above maintenance. This will, unfortunately, promote body fat gain. However, the key to a successful off-season is gaining lean tissue while minimizing body fat gain to the fullest extent possible. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate you will be able to achieve this more efficiently. High testosterone levels will promote a stronger metabolic rate. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, but you should be able to make better use of your calories.
