While Finaject itself is no longer available, in some cases injectable
preparations from Finaplix have been made. The substance is the
same: trenbolone acetate.
Trenbolone is a steroid
having the advantages of undergoing no adverse metabolism, not
being affected by aromatase or 5alpha-reductase; of being very
potent Class I steroid binding well to the androgen receptor;
and having a short half life, probably no more than a day or two
though I don’t believe this has been measured. Fifty milligrams
per day is a good dosing for someone on his first cycle or someone
who is as yet less than, say, 20 pounds over his natural limit;
while 100 mg/day may be preferred by the more advanced user who
has already gained more than this. These doses are assuming that
trenbolone is the only Class I steroid being use. There really
is no need to stack another -- testosterone being the only sensible
exception -- but if another is stacked then the amount of trenbolone
may be reduced accordingly.
There is no evidence in the literature, nor I think practical
evidence, that trenbolone acetate has a ”special role”
in burning fat. Rather, it is an extraordinarily potent AAS, being
about three times as effective per milligram as testosterone esters.
This seems to apply only to Class I activity, however. To obtain
good anabolism from non-AR-mediated mechanisms, a Class II steroid
such as Dianabol or Anadrol should be stacked.
There used to be a myth that trenbolone was ”hard on the
kidneys.” I have found no indication in the scientific literature
of particular kidney toxicity with trenbolone. I know a number
of users, at doses of 50-100 mg/day, who have experienced no problems.
It seems to me that the claims that have been made were from athletes
stacking an incredible amount of drugs, and how the blame could
have fairly been laid at trenbolone (actually at Parabolan, not
trenbolone acetate) is not clear.
