Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
As a result, Trenbolone Acetate now functions as the primary anabolic compound (aka the ‘workhorse’ compound) that will function to provide the muscle growth throughout the cycle. Trenbolone is strictly an advanced level anabolic steroid, unfit for use by beginners of any type. In this cycle, the Acetate variant of Trenbolone is utilized simply due to its seamless compatibility with Testosterone Propionate. This is because the Propionate and Acetate esters as, previously mentioned early on in this section of the profile, both possess almost identical half-lives (3 days for Trenbolone Acetate and days for Testosterone Propionate). This therefore provides an ease of convenience for the user, as well as smoother injection and administration frequencies. The fact that Testosterone is being utilized at a low enough doses to avoid aromatization, combined with the fact that Trenbolone’s inability to convert into Estrogen at any dose should result in the total elimination of any potential water retention, bloating, gynecomastia or any side effects associated with Estrogen . It is important to note that this cycle in particular is strong enough to be utilized as a bulking cycle, lean mass cycle, or cutting cycle – all without the inflated potential for water retention or other Estrogenic side effects.
