While tremendously beneficial to the cutting phase and often considered essential to competitive bodybuilders during contest prep, Trenbolone Acetate is also a phenomenal off-season bulking steroid . When we refer to this hormonal compound as versatile, that is truly an accurate statement. There are very few anabolic steroids that can promote mass like Trenbolone Acetate. More importantly, the effects of Trenbolone Acetate in this regard are not only strong but are far cleaner than most traditional bulking steroids. This hormone will not and cannot promote water retention, meaning each and every pound of weight gained due to use will be lean muscle mass. Of equal importance will be this steroid’s ability to help the individual control fat gain during a period of growth. To achieve true growth, this will require total caloric intake to be slightly above maintenance levels. How far above will vary from one man to the next, and while many often take it too far, this phase will still require a slight surplus. Unfortunately, this necessary surplus will promote body fat gains but due to the metabolic factors that surround Trenbolone Acetate they will be minimized. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, you can still gain a lot of fat if you continually gorge but you should be able to make better use of your total caloric intake. Those who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate during off-season periods of growth should gain less body fat than they would have without it.
Recent trials with beef-producing heifers have mostly been based on the use of an androgen, although oestrogens have been tested, alone or in combination. Thus, zeranol has been reported to increase gain (62, 63), while in other trials no response has been observed (37, 62). TBA administered alone (300 mg) has led to increases in weight gain and FCE of the order of 36% and 25% respectively (24, 27, 37, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70). In other trials, combinations of an oestrogen with TBA (68) or testosterone (62) have yielded significant growth responses. In general, it appears that the effect of TBA alone in heifers corresponds closely to the effect of combined oestrogen/TBA implants in steers.
