GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals


GP Mast 200 is an injectable steroid made by Geneza Pharmaceuticals, its active substance is Drostanolone Enanthate and Propionate.

 GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is perhaps one of the more exotic androgenic / anabolic steroids that may be used by an athlete. Originally it was developed and used as an anti-estrogen for the treatment of breast cancer. It was largely used in combination with the SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) for the treatment of breast cancer, and did give a significant decrease in estrogen levels in women undergoing such treatment. It is not much used these days for such purposes, for varying reasons, however for many athletes including competitive bodybuilders in particular,  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals remains a rather unsung favourite of anabolic steroids medicines.

The fact that  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals was being used as an anti-estrogen goes to suggest quite a lot about some properties  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals possesses.  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is a derivative of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and does not convert to estrogen through means of aromatisation. It is thought that the anti-estrogenic properties of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals may be in part to do with either an inhibition in some way of the aromatase enzyme or an interaction with estrogen itself in a way which blocks receptor binding of the estrogen. Either way, this would put  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals as a useful tool for the anabolic steroid user who uses compounds that convert to estrogen (which most anabolic tseroid users do, considering testosterone is the main basis of most cycles).

By inhibiting the aromatase enzyme,  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals would be in effect blocking the conversion of free testosterone to estrogen by the aromatisation pathway. This would not only serve to marginally increase the amounts of active free testosterone in circulation, but it would also negate the side-effects that result from high levels of estrogen due to aromatisation. Such side effects include the development of gynecomastia and water retention/bloating. Conversely, if  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals actually blocks the binding of estrogen to the estrogen receptor (ER) in some way, although aromatisation of testosterone may occur, its effects would be limited due to the inability of the estrogen to bind to the ER. Thus through this mechanism, the effects of excess estrogen production through aromatisation would also be limited by use of this steroid.

Although  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals contains such anti-estrogenic properties, it also (being a DHT derivative) has anabolic and androgenic properties. Although in theory and on paper it may be seen to be not a very strong androgen, in fact  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals does give higher androgenic effects than one may expect. The use of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals, as it is an anabolic steroids, will shut down natural testosterone production and so despite having anti-estrogenic effects again, one must not think that  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals could be used as an option in post cycle therapy as it will inhibit recovery.

There are two forms of Masteron that are generally available for use – Drostanolone Propionate and Drostanolone Enanthate. The propionate version is usually dosed at 50-150mg/ml and is the fast acting version of Masteron, needing to be injected every other day. The enanthate version of Masteron is dosed normally at around 200mg/ml and needs only to be injected twice per week as the ester attached to the drostanolone is longer thus giving a slower release of hormone.

Due to the effects of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals on estrogen related side effects,  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is a very useful tool (especially in competitive bodybuilding) when cutting. As higher levels of estrogen result in water retention,  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals inhibits water retention, and many users claim that their muscles feel very full and tight on  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals, with it giving them amazing muscle pumps in the gym. Use of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals (in combination with other appropriate meds) at low body fat levels results in the user seeing fine detail of the muscles being accentuated, such as striations and the fine details of the muscle.  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals helps draw out the water from between the skin and the muscle giving this very cut look (at low body fat levels). Not many other anabolic steroids medicines can give such effects on muscle detail as those seen with  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals.

Despite these effects of this steroid, it is a rather weak anabolic steroid in itself. One would hardly benefit at all from use of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals on its own, and furthermore use of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals alone may result in loss of libido due to shutdown of the body's natural testosterone production. For these reasons, it is always recommended to stack  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals with other steroids.

It is said by many that using  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is a waste when the user has a body fat percentage higher than 10-12%. I can understand the reasoning, and the user must understand that at higher body fat levels the detail to the muscle will not be seen in such a way as described, however I do not see it as a waste due to its anti-estrogenic properties. Such properties may allow one to not use other ancillaries on cycle that would have other undesirable side effects, and in addition  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals may work in a synergistic fashion with other AS medicines to amplify their effects (for example with testosterone as described above).  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals would however not be recommended for beginner use as it is not needed at this starting out level.

An example of an excellent cutting cycle for an advanced user would be: (6-10 weeks)
  • 150mg Testosterone Propionate every other day
  • 50mg Trenbolone Acetate every day (or 100mg every other day)
  • 150mg  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals every other day50mg Winstrol every day, last 4 weeks of cycle only
As discussed,  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals possesses anti-estrogenic properties which results in the elimination of many of the unwanted side effects that AS users may experience, such as gynecomastia, water retention and dangerous increases in blood pressure. Although  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is a weak steroid and on paper it has low androgenic properties, it has already been mentioned that in practice the androgenic properties appear to be slightly higher than in theory, and secondly  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is a DHT derivative.

Briefly however, the side effects that may occur with use of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals include hair loss (if prone to male pattern baldness), aggression and acne. If a user does experience acne with other androgens such as testosterone, then it is a real possibility that they may experience it with the use of  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals. I know of people who experience only a few spots with the use of testosterone however when using  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals they experience many more spots. On the other hand, there are users who seem to experience less spots on  GP Mast 200 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals than they do on Trenbolone.

Ronnie Coleman Steroid Cycle


What would the Ronnie Coleman anabolic steroid cycle look like? Surprisingly, even though anabolic steroids are so widely used in professional bodybuilding, the cycles and dosages vary greatly from each pro. Genetics plays an extremely large role in bodybuilding, the anabolic steroids and other drugs are just a helper.

There are some pros that use very low dosages of anabolic steroids, and others that use very high dosages for very long periods of times. It almost makes you wonder where some of the low dose anabolic steroids users would be if they used the same dosage and length as the other guys. The complication of the anabolic steroids cycles also varies from bodybuilder to bodybuilder. There are some who only stick to a few compounds, while others are taking four, five, six at a time. Some are using the most exotic or newest drugs like insulin, IGF, growth hormone, etc., while others just stick to the basics, such as, Testosterone, Dianabol and Deca Durabolin. But what many don’t understand is, it’s not the drugs or steroids that got them there, it’s a combination of genetics, nutrition, hard work, and dedication over several years.

Let’s take a look at actual professional bodybuilders steroid cycles. Names are left out, but this is to give you an idea of the wide range of use and dosages in professional bodybuilding.

As you can see, it’s not much different any bodybuilder you see at the local gym. It’s a relatively low cycle. In fact, the pro admits it’s a low dose cycle, and said he always puts his health first… which can’t be said about all pros.

Here’s another cycle, this one is more along the lines of what most people think the pros take.

Even this steroid cycle the dosage are not too extreme. Some pros go into the 2,000mgs+ for testosterone, and higher in other steroids. Insulin is used on training days. One must be well researched in insulin, as it can be quite dangerous. Growth Hormone is often run for several months at a time, not just during the cycle. Many bodybuilders will also go on a low dosage of testosterone, 200-300mgs per week, instead of going completely off.

As for precontest, here is an example of a pre-competition steroid cycle of a professional bodybuilder.

This cycle is designed for the bodybuilder to peak right at the day of competition. Usually Testosterone propionate will be dropped a couple weeks out, and either switched for Testosterone suspension, or Testosterone will be dropped all together. Many bodybuilders react differently to different steroids, so some may drop other steroids with a couple weeks left. Many will stick with Trenbolone acetate and Winstrol right up to the show.

Where does the Ronnie Coleman steroid cycle fit in? Most professional bodybuilders at the higher end of the steroid cycles, with the higher dosages. As mentioned, some pros don’t use extreme dosages, but these pros usually fall outside the top 10 ranked bodybuilders in the world. But for the most part, there really aren’t any exotic drugs used, or steroids that no one knows about. The only drug used more than the average bodybuilder would be growth hormone, and that’s because it is quite expensive. Some will use IGF, but it’s not as popular or as effective as some may think.

Build Muscle and Lose Fat with Astralean (Clenbuterol)

Astralean is the Clenbuterol tablets by Alpha Pharma. Clenbuterol was originally prescribed as an asthma medication used in the treatment of bronchitis and other breathing related problems. Clenbuterol is now taken by bodybuilders and weightwatchers for its amazing fat burning qualities. Astralean (Clenbuterol), unlike other fat burners has some unique fat burning abilities without causing any serious side effects. It is best used for short periods of time (up to 2 weeks) as the body get used to the drug. It is recommended to take Clenbuterol for two weeks on and two weeks off.

Astralean (Clenbuterol) is a very effective fat burner and weight loss aid being a non anabolic steroid. The main function of Clenbuterol is to boost the production and secretion of catabolic hormones, which are produced in the adrenal region of the brain. These hormones have different types of functions and purposes. Initially they would appear to alter the contractile characteristics of smooth muscle. They will be able to stimulate some and inhibit others. It has a soothing effect in patients suffering from breathing problems.

Clenbuterol is a great help for weight loss and fat burning. It is called thermogenesis - a process by which the body increases its metabolic rate above normal and thus liberates its heat, or energy. This in turn happens due to a rise in blood pressure, increase in heart beat by stimulating heart muscle and an increase in body temperature, which finally results in burning of calories. So Clenbuterol increases the rate of burning of protein and fat in the body and this results in loss of adipose tissue/fat. This in turn results into a harder and leaner physique by means of loss in weight. It reverses the effect of insulin thereby resulting into release of glycogen that goes back into blood as glucose; gradually reaches a stage when further storage or use of glycogen is not at all possible.

Clenbuterol 40mg is a beta 2 adrenergic agonist with many commonalities with ephedrine. But comparatively its results are better and longer in terms of efficacy and efficiency. Clenbuterol acts as a thermogenic drug, thermogenics being supplemental diet that are used for stimulating the burning of fat in body. Thermogenics also increase the metabolism of fat tissues in the body thereby generating heat, called thermogenesis.

Clenbuterol allows patients to eat heavy food without bothering about an increase in body fats. It increases physical strength and ability to perform more workouts. It is considered as an alternative to steroids. Clenbuterol has functionality similar to mild steroids and thus it can be used by bodybuilders to increase strength and muscle hardness. It is a stackable drug and hence can be administered with other steroids or drugs.

GP Turan (Turinabol) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals

GP Turan by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is an oral steroid which contains 10mg of the hormone Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone.

Oral Turinabol, as it is often called, was first discovered in East Germany in 1962. The steroid became very popular due to its high anabolic properties while being a fairly low androgen. This drug is considered to be the main component of the famous East German doping machine, in which thousands of Germany’s Olympic athletes were secretly given steroids in hopes of dominating the Olympics.

GP Turan is in the same family of steroids as methandienone. The results of this drug are often reported by bodybuilders as being similar to those of D-bol, yet without any of the bloat. Bodybuilders have nicknamed the drug “T-bol" due to this. The lack of bloat is due to the fact that GP Turan doesn't aromatize in the body, and therefore no estrogen related side effects become present.

Users of this steroid often report very good gains in strength along with a slight gain in quality muscle mass. T-bol is often used as a “jump start" to a cycle. Here the quick acting effects of the oral allow the bodybuilder to start experiencing gains and "pumps" early on, while the injectables being used in the cycle have more time to take effect. GP Turan is a very versatile steroid and can be used effectively in both cutting and bulking cycles. It stacks well with virtually all compounds, and is also effective at lowering SHBG in the body, thus making the other compounds, such as Testosterone, even more effective.

GP Turan is also commonly used as a "bridge" in between cycles. Here a low dose of the drug (10-15mgs a day) will be used in between cycles in order to prevent a total “crash" and to help the bodybuilder preserve gains made from the previous cycle. T-bol is a C-17 oral, and therefore can put some stress on the liver. Because of this, it’s recommended that users keep doses in reasonable ranges and try to limit their cycles of this steroid to no more than 8 weeks at a time. The common dosages used would be 20-40mgs a day.

Women bodybuilders also find this drug favorable and typically use it in a dosage of 5mgs a day.

GP Methan 10 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals


GP Methan 10 by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is an oral steroid which contains 10mg of the hormone Methandienone.

D-bol is the most popular name for this steroid by bodybuilders. D-bol is credited with being the second anabolic steroid ever created, with the first being testosterone. This steroid is the most popular oral that there is. It is popular with those new to anabolic substances due to how quickly it provides a gain in mass and strength.

Due to its fast effects on the body, GP Methan 10 makes a great "jump start" to any cycle. Here, bodybuilders, will take the drug at the beginning of a cycle to start seeing results immediately while waiting for the slower esters of the injectable anabolics to start taking affect. Users of this steroid often report significant gains in strength and muscle mass. D-bol is also famous for the intense "pump" that it gives the muscles during workouts. This is mostly due to the fact that it dramatically increases protein synthesis and nitrogen retention within the muscle cells.

Mg for Mg, GP Methan 10 is considered one of the strongest anabolic orals available to bodybuilders. It is important to note that some do suffer from estrogen related problems with the usage of D-bol, including bloat and sometimes "gyno" (the development of female tissue under the nipples in males resulting in unattractive and often painful lumps in this area). Because of this, bodybuilders may prefer to use an estrogen inhibitor such as anastrozole or tamoxifen while on this steroid. Like many other orals, GP Methan 10 is a C17-alpha alkylated compound, and therefore can be potentially toxic to the liver. It is recommended that bodybuilders using this anabolic also incorporate a liver protectant into their daily supplement regime, and that they keep their dosages of this powerful drug in reasonable range and try to limit cycle duration to 10 weeks or less. GP Methan 10 can make a great addition to any cycle, and is commonly stacked with all injectable steroids.

As mentioned earlier, this steroid makes a great start to any cycle, but it is also important to note that bodybuilders frequently use it as a "bridge" between cycles and as a means to recovery from a cycle. Here, GP Methan 10 can be taken in a low dose (10mgs a day) during PCT or in between cycles to keep androgen levels high and to maintain strength and mass, while allowing the body's natural testosterone levels to be regained.

D-bol is not a very popular steroid among women bodybuilders due to the fact that it is very prone to causing harsh masculizing side effects. Males typically use GP Methan 10 in a dosage range of 25-100mgs a day for a period of 4-10wks, and 10mgs a day for bridging or PCT purposes for as long as needed.

Deca 300 by Dragon Pharma


This ester makes hormone release from injection sight very slow. Bodybuilders often find that an injection schedule of twice per week is more than sufficient in keeping steady blood levels. This steroid is a poor choice for tested athletes due to how long it lingers in the system. Those looking to use nandrolone and have it out of the system quicker will generally opt for a product like Durabolin. Deca 250 is one of the most popular steroids being used amongst bodybuilders today. Deca is a low androgenic steroid with high anabolic effect. It will aromatize in high dosages, but not at the rate of testosterone. Progesterone buildup is one side effect that some have trouble with. Users sensitive to these issues might choose to add Cabaser or Dostinex to their cycle.

Deca 300 can be used for cutting or for bulking. Bodybuilders often stack it with Testosterone for one of the most common and effective bulking cycles. The deca / winstrol stack is also very popular. It is believed that Winstrol helps block the progesterone buildup while the Deca 300 heIps with the joint issues that some suffer while on Winstrol. The joint relief and healing that Deca provides is one of the main reasons it has become a very popular steroid with Bodybuilders.

Androgen side effects are typically not an issue with Deca 300 (Nandrolone Decanoate) as long as doses are kept within reasonable range. Bodybuilders using this substance by itself sometimes report a loss of libido, therefore, it is recommended that one run at least a small dose of testosterone or even a high androgen like Proviron to help prevent this issue.

Women bodybuilders are also fond of this substance, where it's mild androgenic nature makes it a safe steroid for them to use without fear of masculizing side effects.

Deca will shut down one's body's ability to make it's on natural testosterone, therefore a proper PCT program is recommended following a cycle of this substance. Male bodybuilders often use Deca 300 (Nandrolone Decanoate) in doses of 400-600mgs a week for 8-12 weeks, while women find a dosage range of 50-100mgs weekly to be sufficient for seeing desired results.

Trenbolone Information


Trenbolone is a very powerful steroid that has never been FDA approved for use in humans. It was originally developed as finaplex pellets for use as a vetinary product to be put under the skin of cattle. However over time bodybuilders have realised its unique properties and powerful benefits and it has become a favourite anabolic steroid for many, despite having more harsh side effects than most other steroids. Many people would convert the pellets into an injectable form, in a rather crude and dangerous manner that would neither be safe nor sterile, and poses many risks. However, despite being non-approved by the FDA, there are a number of respectable Underground Labs (UGLs) that produce quality injectable forms of trenbolone. For the user who understandably likes to stick to pharmaceutical grade steroids, unfortunately there is no such form of trenbolone available.

Trenbolone is a highly androgenic steroid, with binding to the Androgen Receptor (AR) in the region of three times as high as testosterone. It does not aromatise and so is not subject to estrogenic side effects. In addition to high androgenicity, it is also extremely anabolic too, thus is very good at building muscle mass, and retaining muscle mass in a calorie deficient mode. It is also thought that trenbolone inhibits cortisol production directly through the glucocorticoid receptors. Trenbolone is often found to be a body transforming drug, and also can aid a little in fat loss. This may be due to the very strong binding of trenbolone to the AR, which has been postulated to be one mechanism that results in the activation of fat loss pathways, possible through direct binding to fat cells' ARs. This makes trenbolone a favourite among bodybuilders for cutting, and in addition to these benefits, trenbolone usually results in large increases in strength due to its high androgenic effects.

Trenbolone although not converted to estrogen, does have progesteronic effects, which will be discussed further in the side effects section of this article.

Suggested Cycles / Uses
Typically today underground labs produce trenbolone acetate as 75g/ml or 100mg/ml. It is often recommended first-time users of trenbolone to use the faster acting acetate in case the side effects become too much for the user, they can then come off of the steroid very quickly and it is out of the system much quicker than, for example, the enanthate ester. For the novice user, 75mg or 100mg every other day (eod) is advised, however due to the acetate ester being even shorter than a propionate ester and the half life 1 day or less, to both reduce sides and aid gains, it is advisable that the user (if they can bear every day injections) injects trenbolone acetate every day (ed), at 37.5-50mg ed.

More advanced users may find that taking the trenbolone to amounts over 500mg per week has very desirable effects on strength and body composition, however note that the side effects will also increase with the increase in dose. Due to the negative effect that trenbolone has on libido, it is not generally recommended to take trenbolone without testosterone. However, one can take trenbolone for short periods without testosterone and introduce an aid such as Proviron (metsterolone) to help with the libido issues, along with proper extensive post cycle therapy (PCT) for recovery. A typical test-free cycle with trenbolone may include something like 600mg Primobolan per week, 400mg trenbolone enanthate per week, for 10 weeks, PCT starting 2 weeks after last injections. The enanthate ester and other similar esters of trenbolone can be injected twice per week. Below are some example cycles using trenbolone:

Novice:
Testosterone propionate 100-150mg eod, 6-8weeks
Trenbolone acetate 75-100mg eod, 6-8 weeks, PCT 4 days after last prop injection.

Intermediate:
Testosterone enanthate 750mg per week, weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-12
Winstrol 50mg ed weeks, 8-14

Primobolan 600mg per week, weeks 1-10
Testosterone propionate 200mg eod weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-10

Advanced:
Primobolan 600mg per week, weeks 1-10
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-10
Testosterone enanthate 1000mg per week, weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 500-700mg per week, weeks 1-12
Anavar 80-100mg ed, weeks 1-14

Very advanced/pre-contest:
Testosterone propionate 100-200mg ed
Trenbolone acetate 75-100mg ed
Masteron 400-600mg per week
Winstrol 50mg ed
Primobolan 600mg per week
Halotestin 10-20mg ed

Common Side effects
Out of all the injectable steroids available, trenbolone is the one that should be used with extreme caution and only after plenty of research into its side effects and common cycles have been carried out. Trenbolone side effects can be very bad to many users, so much so that they will not use it despite its very positive effects on the body and strength. Firstly, as trenbolone is so androgenic, all side effects that are seen with strong androgens can be expected (if prone) with trenbolone. If one is prone to male pattern baldness (MPB) than trenbolone will likely speed this up. Some users find acne on trenbolone worse than when on any other steroid. Certainly Trenbolone is not recommended for female users due to its strong androgenic properties and the common side effects that manifest themselves in females who use strong androgens.

Despite the fact that trenbolone cannot aromatise, due to the progesterone route it can cause things like gynecomastia, but this will only really happen in the presence of estrogen. This does happen though in many users, as trenbolone is usually stacked with a testosterone, which obviously can and will convert to estrogen. Gynecomastia from trenbolone can be quite bad many will find, however if you do not suffer from this than other estrogenic side effects should not be of worry, as trenbolone does not cause any water retention or similar, but in fact often gives a hardened look and feel to the muscles.

Trenbolone also seems to give many users poor sleep patterns and insomnia. In addition, it can cause severe sweating in many, both during the night time and also just from doing the smallest of activities such as walking up stairs, etc. It also can impair to a certain degree, cardiovascular function, which means that it is not ideal for use in those who regular partake in such sports or activity that require a decent level of cardiovascular fitness.

Trenbolone also increases blood pressure in many users, some to such a degree that they have to cease using it. Thus it is recommended that one who wishes to use trenbolone, invests in a blood pressure monitor so they can regularly measure their blood pressure and keep an eye on it throughout the cycle.

Many people claim that trenbolone has a negative effect on the kidneys. There are many of these claims certainly across the Internet since its use has become more widespread. However, there is no real evidence for these claims, and certainly I have seen many long-term users of trenbolone have kidney function tests that are well within the normal range. Perhaps the reason for this theory is the fact that when using trenbolone, many find that their urine can become a much darker more orange-brown colour. However, this is due to the fact that trenbolone undergoes very little modification or breakdown and is excreted as a rust-coloured oxidised form in the urine. In addition to this, any damage to kidney may not even be directly due to the trenbolone, but more to do with the increased sweating and water loss from excessive body heat whilst on trenbolone, without the sufficient addition of water intake. Thus it is recommended if running trenbolone to keep the water intake high.

As trenbolone is such a strong steroid, it is very harsh on the HTPA axis and will shut down the body's natural testosterone production very easily and, for many, very harshly. It is comparable to 'deca dick' that people can experience with deca, and longer cycles may need to include the use of HCG to restore one's own natural production of testosterone. Recovery from cycles containing trenbolone is not easy, and requires a very well thought out and stringent PCT routine and diet.

It has also been suggested through research that trenbolone actually (although aiding slightly in fat loss) reduces endogenous T3 levels. Thus some advocate the use of 25mcg T3 throughout a trenbolone cycle. This writer does not personally think that this is necessary; however it is something that users may wish to consider when using trenbolone, especially if their natural T3 production is on the lower side of the normal range. It is a very good idea to get blood work done both before and after any cycle including trenbolone.

Tren cough
The so called 'tren cough' or 'Fina cough' is well known amongst many tren users. Some users seem to get the cough following every injection; others never or extremely rarely will get the cough. Usually it is manifested upon injection, with a tightness in the chest, and a metallic taste in the back of the mouth, followed by an uncontrollable violent cough which can be quite frightening, as anyone who has experienced it will tell you, whether it's for the first time or not. There have been some very elaborate theories about the reasons for getting the cough from trenbolone, some of which have had mechanisms involving molecules that only trenbolone affects resulting in bronchioconstriction, etc. However, the fact remains that many users have also experienced the same cough from steroids such as equipoise and testosterone cypionate. In addition, these mechanisms that are proposed are highly unlikely to occur immediately upon injection, as that is too fast a timescale for the proposed mechanism. Thus it must be the result of something entering the blood stream and traveling to the lungs for the cough to be manifested that quickly.

This leads us onto the next theory suggested by many which is that trenbolone is produced by many UGLs, and as such is made with higher percentages of Benzyl Alcohol (BA) than pharma grade products are, and it is the alcohol that is causing the reaction. The only problem with this theory is that trenbolone is made by most UGLs with the same BA percentages as things such as testosterone propionate, and nandrolone decanoate. If it was purely the BA concentration, than we would expect to see the cough with these other products as well, which we do not. Thus, as we have eliminated the oil, solvents and carriers, it leaves us with the Trenbolone product itself as the potential culprit.

One thing that you notice about trenbolone is that it is often a golden-brown / rust colour when in oil solution. If the hormone powder is refined to greater than 99.5% purity or so, then the colour of trenbolone in solution actually gives a very light golden colour, much like other testosterone products; however, refining the hormone to this level of purity is extremely difficult. This is why there is colour variation from batch to batch with different underground labs; something as small as 0.1% purity can affect the colour of the final product.

As mentioned above when discussing kidney effects of trenbolone, the oxidised trenbolone is a rust colour – much like the colour seen of trenbolone in oil solution. What you also notice with steroids such as Equipoise and to a lesser degree, testosterone cypionate, is that these steroids too are hard to very highly refine and often a browny-rust colour, more so than products such as testosterone propionate, etc. It is very likely then that these oxidised particles get into the blood stream upon injection and this causes some sort of anaphylactic (allergic) reaction in the lungs as the particles react with the alveoli, perhaps. This seems to be confirmed by the fact that the darker the trenbolone is the more likely one is to get a cough (personal and general experience). The best way to try and avoid this is to firstly inject very slowly and not move the needle around after aspirating, and also mixing the trenbolone with another product such as test prop.
