4-Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, sold under the brand name Turinabol, is an anabolic steroid developed in the 1960s, a highly competitive time for the Olympics and national level sports, the East German experts were looking for effective steroids that would circumvent these sports’ drug testing policies.
For men, I recommend 20-50mgs per day as part of a steroid stack. Many bodybuilders think they have to use it in high dosages for good results, this is false. Since Tbol does not aromatize, don’t expect the scale to move daily, as you won’t retain a lot of water in your muscles.
Women can run Tbol at tiny dosages, 2.5-7.5mgs per day max. It can cause virilization at higher dosages. Remember the East German women jokes? They are rooted in tbol use, so be very careful ladies.
|Gender ||Dosages |
|Male ||20-50 milligrams per day |
|Female ||2.5-7.5 milligrams per day |
What they settled on was the methylated version of 4-chorotestosterone, also called Oral Turinabol. Oral Turinabol is often described as having properties somewhere between Dianabol, and Anavar. With its moderate anabolic effects, and mild-ish side effects, this isn’t a bad description.
The androgenic effect of Turinabol is said to be between 0 to 6 and the anabolic effect is 53.
Properties of 4-Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone Because of its distinct separation of its androgenic to anabolic effects, it is a weaker anabolic steroid than its parent hormone Dianabol. However, the assurance with Tbol is that with any apparent muscle building capability, it will present much less in the way of androgenic effects and absolutely no estrogenic effects (due to its inability to aromatize into Estrogen). Because of its fairly weaker strength than Dianabol, the doses required to elicit effects from Tbol are considered to be quite high (this will be explained shortly in the Tbol doses section of this profile). In general, athletes and bodybuilders can expect steady and quality lean mass gains with no risk of any bloating, gyno, or any other estrogenic effects. Mass and strength gains are not known to be dramatic due to its lack of anabolic strength, but steady and quality lean gains that grow consistently over time can be expected. It is also used as an ideal cutting agent during periods of fat loss or pre-contest preparation due to its inability to convert into Estrogen. Turinabol’s capabilities really shine as an adjunct to other anabolic steroids when it is run (stacked) with other anabolic steroids due to its ability to bind to SHBG. Binding to SHBG allows more of the other anabolic steroids it is stacked with to be available to do their job, being uninhibited by SHBG, which is another advantage that it exhibits.
