Turanabol is in the same family of steroids as methandienone. The results of this drug are often
reported by bodybuilders as being similar to those of D-bol, yet without any of the bloat. Bodybuilders
have nicknamed the drug ‘T-bol’ due to this. The lack of bloat is due to the fact that Turanabol doesn’t
aromatize in the body, and therefore no estrogen related side effects become present.
Users of this steroid often report very good gains in strength along with a slight gain in quality muscle
mass. T-bol is often used as a ‘jump start’ to a cycle. Here the quick acting effects of the oral allow the
bodybuilder to start experiencing gains and “pumps” early on, while the injectables being used in the
cycle have more time to take effect. Turanabol is a very versatile steroid and can be used effectively
in both cutting and bulking cycles. It stacks well with virtually all compounds, and is also effective at
lowering SHBG in the body, thus making the other compounds, such as Testosterone, even more
Turanabol is also commonly used as a “bridge” in between cycles. Here a low dose of the drug
(10-15mgs a day) will be used in between cycles in order to prevent a total ‘crash’ and to help the
bodybuilder preserve gains made from the previous cycle. T-bol is a C-17 oral, and therefore can put
some stress on the liver. Because of this, it’s recommended that users keep doses in reasonable ranges
and try to limit their cycles of this steroid to no more than 8 weeks at a time. The common dosages used
would be 20-40mgs a day.
