Trenbolone is a very well-known injectable anabolic steroid, and milligram for milligram it is the most powerful anabolic steroid commercially and conventionally available. It is an anabolic steroid that tends to invoke both intimidation as well as amazement among those who read about it. The truth is that although Trenbolone is not as harsh of an anabolic steroid as many make it out to be, it is by no means a beginner compound and does need to be taken seriously when the use of it is considered. It is typically used by intermediate to advanced level anabolic steroid users, and seldom used by beginners until several cycles of experience has been built up.
The chemical modifications described above result in Trenbolone becoming dramatically more potent of an androgen and an anabolic than its progenitor hormone Nandrolone, or even Testosterone. Testosterone is used as the baseline reference by which all other anabolic steroids are measured against and compared to (much like how the Celsius temperature scale utilizes the boiling and freezing point of water as the base reference for temperature measurement). As such, we can put Trenbolone’s anabolic and androgenic strength into perspective by comparing it to Testosterone. Testosterone possesses an anabolic and androgenic rating of 100 each, respectively. Trenbolone holds an anabolic and androgenic rating of both 500 each, respectively. The modification responsible for making Trenbolone five times stronger than Testosterone is its two double bonds at carbons 19 and 11. Furthermore, for better understanding and perspective, every potential Trenbolone user must realize that in order to achieve the equivalent strength of 200mg of Trenbolone, one would have to administer 1,000mg of Testosterone. In order for an individual to achieve the strength of 500mg of Trenbolone, the equivalent of 2,500mg of Testosterone would be required.
