This is an oral steroid with great similarities in its chemical structure to the famous Dianabol.
Tbol is derived from testosterone with some modifications which make it less androgenic in activity but still powerfully anabolic although it does not compare to the more potent anabolic steroids on the market when it comes to mass gains or bulking, and these are not the areas of common use or major benefit of Turinabol.
Increased endurance, stamina, strength and improved recovery are the hallmark properties of Turinabol. Clearly these effects are also of benefit to many bodybuilders from a performance enhancement perspective. But perhaps even more powerful is this steroid’s ability to help you get more out of other steroids you’re using.
For this reason Tbol should be seriously considered as an addition to a cycle for any steroid user regardless of goal. Whether serious mass gaining steroids are being used or those compounds used for cutting, Turinabol can add another dimension to a cycle that allows you to get much more out of your other steroids while keeping their doses lower.
Turinabol is of course an oral steroids and this does come with its downsides, most notably for its negative effects on the liver. For steroid users with experience in using hepatotoxic compounds, common sense precautions such as limiting cycle length will be at the front of mind.
But for users new to liver toxic oral steroids it is paramount that the risks are well understood so that the real risk of liver toxicity is minimized as much as possible while still allowing you to extract maximum benefit from the incredibly useful and effective steroid that is Turinabol.
DOSAGE & INSTRUCTIONS
This is not a steroid that anyone is likely to use on its own in a cycle. It is best used alongside at least one other steroid such as testosterone, although more powerful steroids are also suitable.
Not only is the addition of at least a testosterone steroid into a Turinabol necessary to combat testosterone suppression, but Turinabol has excellent synergy with testosterone itself and contributes to the freeing up of testosterone so circulating levels are higher.
This is one of the big benefits of Turinabol and can be the sole reason people add it to a cycle. Below are some of the typical cycles we see with Turinabol at various experience levels:
Beginner Turinabol Cycle
Most beginners will want to keep the first cycle as simple as possible and that means stacking Turinabol with a testosterone ester such as the long acting Testosterone Enanthate. The testosterone itself will work more efficiently with Turinabol binding to SHBG.
In this cycle Tbol will still contribute to some mass gains while improving recovery and endurance Testosterone Enanthate taken for the entire 12 week cycle at between 300mg and 500mg weekly, and Turinabol used only for the first 8 weeks at 30mg daily will kick in earlier in the cycle while the slower acting testosterone ester takes over for the cycle’s second half.
Intermediate Turinabol Cycle
This intermediate cycle makes use of slow acting steroids that will require patience to start benefiting from their full effects several weeks into the cycle.
With the addition of the powerful Deca-Durabolin, this Turinabol cycle is focused on mass gains and they will be quality gains with fluid retention kept at a minimum. Testosterone in this cycle is used only as a supportive compound to provide your testosterone requirements due to the suppressive effects of the other compounds. In this case just 100mg weekly of Testosterone Cypionate will cover your bases with Deca used at 400mg weekly for 12 weeks, and Turinabol included for the first 8 weeks only at between 40mg and 60mg per day.
Advanced Turinabol Cycle
The most experienced steroid users will already have, or be ready to try some of the most advanced and powerful steroid compounds and in this case we can include the excellent Trenbolone in this Turinabol cycle. Just like Turinabol, Trenbolone also does not aromatize so gains will be very clean.
Expect high quality muscle and strength gains with the combination of these two steroids and the inclusion of Testosterone at a maintenance dosage for the duration of this 8 week cycle. The dose of Turinabol in this cycle can be considered up to 80mg even though this goes beyond what many might be comfortable with; even a dose of 40-70mg daily will be sufficient but those with existing cholesterol issues need to be extra cautious with dosing.
Trenbolone Acetate at a dose of 400mg per week will provide excellent mass gains suitable for cutting or other goals including contests because of the lack of fluid retention that will bring about a superb hard and dry physique.
For best results Trenbolone doses should be broken down into 100mg taken every two days. Finally, to mitigate testosterone suppression that will occur the inclusion of Testosterone Propionate at just 100mg weekly will cover your testosterone requirements during the cycle. This 8 week cycle should only be considered by advanced users as Trenbolone is a very potent steroid only suited to the most experienced people.
Although Turinabol is known to stack very well with most other steroids, and in fact can promote a more efficient use of them in the body, it should never be stacked with other oral steroids of the C17-aa type such as Anavar, because of the doubling up of hepatotoxic compounds which would stress the liver to potentially dangerous levels.
Turinabol otherwise works well with a wide range of steroids and is often used in the first 6 to 8 weeks of a cutting cycle to provide muscle preservation and hardening effects while being stacked with compounds like Winstrol or Masteron which can be used through to the end of the cycle
For mass gain cycles it is commonly stacked with Deca-Durabolin, Dianabol or Trenbolone.
At a bare minimum, Tbol should always be stacked with a form of testosterone if only for the need to combat the suppression of natural testosterone that is certain to occur.
POST CYCLE THERAPY
Like almost every anabolic steroid, Turinabol will cause your body’s regular testosterone to decrease with the risk of low testosterone being high. This requires the use of a testosterone steroid alongside Turinabol in a cycle, to take care of your testosterone requirements during this time. At the end of the cycle you will see a crash in testosterone if you don’t undertake post cycle therapy to stimulate the body to start producing its own testosterone again. PCT will generally include the most commonly used drugs such as Nolvadex.
Depending on which other compounds are being used and how powerfully suppressive they are, the inclusion of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) can be of great benefit in stimulating testosterone function.
The length of your PCT will again be determined by which other steroids are in use, but in general a period of between four and six weeks should be considered as standard and providing a sufficient supportive framework to allow normal testosterone to get back on track.
The use of Turinabol can interfere with the hormonal balance within your body, which could lead to that aesthetically unappealing acne and rashes. Using Turinabol can also lead to balding head and causing more hair to grow on your back.
