YOU ARE A FUCKING IDIOT AND PLEASE DO NOT ADVISE PEOPLE ABOUT ANYTHINGPeople often suggest testosterone enanthate or cypionate as a first cycle, but I dipped my toe in the water with a turinabol-only cycle, and I recommend it. I only ran it for three and a half weeks the first time, at 50mg a day, followed by basic PCT with tamoxifen.
I gained about 13lb of dry muscle, with negligible side-effects. 8 weeks is quite a long time to run a methylated oral steroid, but thousands of athletes in the former East Germany ran very long Tbol cycles. I recommend a 1 month cycle, or it could be hard to revive your balls at the end.
Here are a few of my thoughts on Turinabol (I have since used it as a kickstart to a testosterone cycle, too)
It doesn't bloat you like dianabol, or dry you out like winstrol. You sort of stay the same on Tbol.
I feel good on it, and libido is neautral or slightly improved (at least for the first month). It will shut down your HPTA, but not as fast as many other steroids.
It has a certain "rhythm" that, if you get in sync with it, you will add half a lb of muscle a day.
Spread the dose out throughout the day. Eat protein throughout the day. train every day, medium weights, don't go for personal bests. Tbol will make that protein stick to your bones - it's a great nitrogen retention agent.
Recovery after training is fast with Tbol. I'm 43, and I can train every day with only that "good" ache the following day.
It makes me crave food - but only protein. I dream about thick steaks washed down with whey protein shakes.
You don't need to take an Aromatase inhibitor (AI) or SERM on a Tbol cycle - estrogenic effects are negligible.
Turinabol is basically dianabol with a chlorine atom in a position on the molecule which stops it from aromatizing - it's like dianabol V 2.0. Dianabol pills are the absolute cheapest steroid, but Tbol isn't much more expensive. It has a longer plasma half-life, the gains are muscle rather than muscle and water, and in my opinion, it's the most versatile oral steroid.
