Trenbolone. Tren. People mention the drug all the time like its the ONLY VIP guest that makes or breaks your juice party. As with most common vocabulary used by athletes, bodybuilders and our recreational iron brotherhood, their is SOME truth in most time-tested and regurgitated phrases. The REAL REASON(S) behind tren's actions and properties are fairly straight forward.
If you've been around the iron game for a while, you've no doubt heard something similar to these two statements below:
The truth is, when it comes to trenbolone and dieting, dieting as we define it - retaining hard-earned muscle at the expense of burning body-fat, trenbolone is hard to beat.
Lastly, but not least - trenbolone binds strongly to the androgen receptor more strongly than almost any other steroid (save for maybe the man-made or 'never-to-market' loop-hole-types, a whole other topic of discussion). When the AR is bound tightly, it tends to affect the CNS and the neuromuscular system - aka - muscle firing by something called alpha motor neurons. These suckers are the dudes responsible for controlling things like rate of force production and or speed of contractions. What does this mean?
The more intensely and efficiently the motor neurons fire the muscle
fibers, the more force those fibers can produce. At its foundation,
force generation IS STRENGTH as we know it. Whether you are a 'pumper'
or more of a 'power-bodybuilder', there is no getting around the fact
that cumulative gains in Strength over long stretches of time from
resistance training makes us look...different. That visual response we all love to see in the mirror - the "building of the body" made possible by the good old overload principle that has been around for-ever. Tren is most valuable as a tool to GUARD muscle tissue while stripping fat. The stronger you STAY when cutting/dieting/shredding up, the
more muscle mass you are able to keep.
