Turinabol is an oral 17-α-alkylated (17-aa) anabolic steroid that is more closely related to Dianabol than any other steroid. A common thought is to compare Turinabol to Anavar based on the types of gains but when we examine the steroid we find a bit of a different story. As you understand Dianabol is simply Methandrostenolone and Turinabol is Methandrostenolone with the added 4-chloro alteration.
An anabolic androgenic steroid Turinabol as it is officially known carries an androgenic ranking of 0 but nevertheless possess androgenic qualities as well as a nice anabolic ranking of 53. As a 17-aa anabolic steroid Turinabol is hepatic and liver enzymes will increase when the steroid is present; however, such existence is necessary in order for the steroid to function and survive. The 17-aa structural alteration simply means the steroid has been altered at the 17th carbon position in order for it to survive the first pass through the liver; without this change the hormone would be destroyed before it reached the blood and provided any advantage or benefit to the body.
As by its nature one of the primary functions of the hormonal compound is in its synergetic nature with other anabolic steroids. Turinabol has the ability to reduce Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) thereby freeing more testosterone to be used at a higher rate of efficiency within the body. However, this steroid also by its nature carries a negative trait due to its fibrinolytic properties, meaning, it will greatly slow down the blood clotting process. When you couple this with the fact anabolic steroids increase hematocrit levels any cut you incur will bleed far longer than normal.
As mentioned Turinabol carries some strong similarities in its make-up with Dianabol as it will increase strength and size but it is strength and performance for which it is more apt. Further, unlike Dianabol Tbol will not aromatize therefor giving it a higher level of toleration in many users.
Turinabol can be a good anabolic steroid for generally any cycle; however, it will not produce near the amount of mass as many other steroids and to produce a large amount of mass an individual would need a fairly large amount and as Tbol is relatively expensive this isn’t always the best rout. However, it is important to note, by the way in-which Turinabol exist any increase in size will be exactly the size you want, pure muscle tissue. Make no mistake; we’re not saying Tbol is as poor of a mass builder as Primobolan, far from it but its positive properties will largely lie within increasing strength and athletic performance.
As it pertains to enhancing athletic performance it really shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise; after all, this was the original intention of this anabolic steroid when it was brought to the market. How good is Turinabol at performing this task; well, a mere 10mg per day could give most any athlete a nice boost in speed but most will find a little more to be far more worth their while. While this steroid can be very beneficial to the performance athlete it can also have a positive effect for the bodybuilder in-terms of performance in that same light but the majority of competitive bodybuilders who supplement with Tbol will do so when dieting.
You will rarely if ever find a competitive bodybuilder who supplements with Turinabol during his off-season period; as discussed this is not one of the better mass builders and mass is the primary focus for most bodybuilders during the off-season. It is during the dieting phase Tbol can be useful to the bodybuilder as it can aid him in maintaining strength while he is dieting and help him push through his workouts a little harder. However, this is not one of the more commonly used bodybuilding steroids even in the dieting phase not simply because its availability is rather low but because there are so many other steroids that will serve this individuals purpose to much more efficient degree.
