Tbol / Proviron Cycle

Post by brownbomber on Fri Jun 23, 2017 11:55 pm

Hey guys gona get 200 tabs of 10mg DP turninabol. I was thinking of running it at 40mg ED for 50 days along with proviron at 25mg ED. My goals are to gain about 5 lbs if possible but most importantly to reduce my bf slightly. Any input...i know i could run tren/prop or prop/winny for this purpose but i never tried t-bol b4 so i wana give it a go. Im not overweight either im 6'0" 195lbs 11-12% bf. btw is full out pct really neccessary or could i get away with clomid for a 1.5 weeks to 2 weeks instead of a 3 week pct of nolva/clomid that i would normally do with test/eq cycle...thx guys

why not add the prop in? if your looking to add 5lbs you can do that with
diet alone. I would use var instead of the t-bol if your looking to gain small
and drop bf. 40 to 50mg a day for 8 weeks. and yes I would do a full pct
all aas shut you down. In my opnion clomid is not needed 3 weeks of
nolva 40/30/20 should be fine.

ohh and if you do the the t-bol/proviron cycle you will need a full pct as
proviron will stop the natural test production along with the t-bol.

T-BOL is basically dbol without the bloat. so I would imagine the gains are a bit less beacause of the low water retention. As for all oral cycles I dont see the gains really being kept on most.

How about certain individuals who run var at 50mg or more ED would they be able to retain their gains (however much they may be) pct better than tbol or is are gains of off var hard to keep. I know dbol and drol weight gain is mostly water so your bound to loose weight but what about var?

This is the EXACT description of Proviron at the gear site:

"Proviron is a registrated trademark of Scherling A/G Germany & Schering Mexicanna. Proviron/mesterolone Oral 25 mg Tablets are a multi-purpose Androgenic steroid with anabolic properties designed to be given to men in the early and medopausal stages of life. This steroid is most unique in the world because it is a non-17 Alpha Oral Androgen replacement for males. Provides health, added sex drive, the feeling of well being, vigor and sone qualities of youth. It may be taken over long periods of time. It does not aromatize in fact bodybuilders take this in place of Nolvadex because Proviron is an Estrogen antagonist. It is completely singlestick with all other steroids. Though as the best steroids goes not approved by FDA but Schering world wide sales don�t seem to suffer. Proviron is sold in 37 countries world wide. Since it�s unique formula does not shut down the male own hormone production as with the highly androgenic Testosterone Cyponiate and spermogenis is added to not subtracted from. Proviron could medically help 20 to 30 million males who experience male-menopause."

So my question is... is this correct???

var is good for keeping muscle between cycles as a bridge or
if your dieting down using t-3/dnp/clen things like that. The gains are not huge from it. Its also great during a cycle for stregnth and lean gains. I love
it the DP var works very well...

yes I and many others have read it before you never see anyone use proviron for pct because you will not recover fully or correctly. here it is in bb terms.


Proviron...all you need to know!
Big Cats profile on Proviron, Amended by Lawnsaver.

Mesterolone is an orally active, 1-methylated DHT. Like Masteron, but then actually delivered in an oral fashion. DHT is the conversion product of testosterone at the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, the result being a hormone that is 3 to 4 times as androgenic and is structurally incapable of forming estrogen. One would imagine then that mesterolone would be a perfect drug to enhance strength and add small but completely lean gains to the frame. Unfortunately there is a control mechanism for DHT in the human body. When levels get too high, the 3alpha hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme converts it to a mostly inactive compound known as 3-alpha (5-alpha-androstan-3alpha,17beta-diol), a prohormone if you will. It can equally convert back to DHT by way of the same enzyme when low levels of DHT are detected. But it means that unless one uses ridiculously high amounts, most of what is administered is quite useless at the height of the androgen receptor in muscle tissue and thus mesterolone is not particularly suited, if at all, to promote muscle hypertrophy.

Proviron has four distinct uses in the world of bodybuilding. The first being the result of its structure. It is 5-alpha reduced and not capable of forming estrogen, yet it nonetheless has a much higher affinity for the aromatase enzyme (which converts testosterone to estrogen) than testosterone does. That means in administering it with testosterone or another aromatizable compound, it prevents estrogen build-up because it binds to the aromatase enzyme very strongly, thereby preventing these steroids from interacting with it and forming estrogen. So Mesterolone use has the extreme benefit of reducing estrogenic side-effects and water retention noted with other steroids, and as such still help to provide mostly lean gains. Its also been suggested that it may actually downgrade the actual estrogen receptor making it doubly effective at reducing circulating estrogen levels.

The second use is in enhancing the potency of testosterone. Testosterone in the body at normal physiological levels is mostly inactive. As much as 97 or 98 percent of testosterone in that amount is bound to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and albumin, two proteins. In such a form testosterone is mostly inactive. But as with the aromatase enzyme, DHT has a higher affinity for these proteins than testosterone does, so when administered simultaneously the mesterolone will attach to the SHBG and albumin, leaving larger amounts of free testosterone to mediate anabolic activities such as protein synthesis. Another way in which it helps to increase gains. Its also another part of the equation that makes it ineffective on its own, as binding to these proteins too, would render it a non-issue at the androgen receptor.

Thirdly, mesterolone is added in pre-contest phases to increase a distinct hardness and muscle density. Probably due to its reduction in circulating estrogen, perhaps due to the downregulating of the estrogen receptor in muscle tissue, it decreases the total water build-up of the body giving its user a much leaner look, and a visual effect of possessing "harder" muscles with more cuts and striations. Proviron is often used as a last-minute secret by a lot of bodybuilders and both actors and models have used it time and again to deliver top shape day in day out, when needed. Like the other methylated DHT compound, drostanolone, mesterolone is particularly potent in achieving this feat.

Lastly Proviron is used during a cycle of certain hormones such as nandrolone, with a distinct lack of androgenic nature, or perhaps 5-alpha reduced hormones that don't have the same affinities as DHT does. Such compounds, thinking of trenbolone, nandrolone and such in particular, have been known to decrease libido. Limiting the athlete to perform sexually being the logical result. DHT plays a key role in this process and is therefore administered in conjunction with such steroids to ease or relieve this annoying side-effect. Proviron is also commonly prescribed by doctors to people with low levels of testosterone, or patients with chronic impotence. Its not perceived as a powerful anabolic, but it gets the job done equally well if not better than other anabolic steroids making it a favorite in medical practices due to its lower chance of abuse.

Mesterolone is generally well liked nonetheless as it delivers very few side-effects in men. In high doses it can cause some virilization symptoms in women. But because of the high level of deactivation and pre-destination in the system (albumin, SHBG, 3bHSD, aromatase) quite a lot of it, if not all simply never reaches the androgen receptor where it would cause anabolic effects, but also side-effects. So its relatively safe. Doses between 25 and 250 mg per day are used with no adverse effects. 50 mg per day is usually sufficient to be effective in each of the four cases we mentioned up above, so going higher really isn't necessary. Unlike what some suggest or believe,

I will post an abstract to refute these next statements at the bottom of the page

Its not advised that Proviron be used when not used in conjunction with another steroid, as it too is quite suppressive of natural testosterone, leading to all sorts of future complications upon discontinuation. Ranging from loss of libido or erectile dysfunction all the way up to infertility. One would not be aware of such dangers because Proviron fulfills most of the functions of normal levels of testosterone.

Stacking and Use:

Mesterolone is an oral alkylated steroid. If used primarily as an anti-aromatase drug, using it throughout a longer cycle (10-12 weeks) of injectables may elevate liver values a little bit, though much, much less than one would expect with a 17-alpha-alkylated steroid. Eventhough instead of inhibiting gains, mesterolone may actually contribute to gains. So that's a bit of a shame. Its not quite as toxic since its not alkylated in the same fashion, but at the 1 position, which reduces hepatic breakdown, but not like 17-alpha alkylation. The reason for the change of position I assume, is because alkylating at the 17-alpha position has been shown to reduce affinity for sex hormone binding proteins. This would in turn decrease its ability to free testosterone. Nonetheless the delivery rate is quite good. Its taken daily in 50-100 mg doses.

The best thing to stack it with is testosterone of course. Its most easily bound to SHBG and albumin, and deactivated for up to 98%. Since the DHT can compete for these structures with higher affinity it would naturally lead to a higher yield of whatever testosterone product you stacked it with. Since DHT levels are notably higher now there is also more stimulation of the androgen receptor causing more strength gains, and because of its affinity for aromatase the overall estrogen level decreases as well. This has as a result that gains are leaner, and once again the overall testosterone yield is increased as less I converted at the aromatase enzyme.

It's of course used in other stacks with products such as methandrostenolone, boldenone and nandrolone to reduce estrogenic activity and increase muscle hardness. The addition of proviron makes boldenone a dead lock for a cutting stack and for some may even make it possible to use nandrolone while cutting, although the use of Winstrol or a receptor antagonist in conjunction is wishful as well. The benefit of adding it to a nandrolone stack is that it may also help you reduce the decrease in libido suffered from nandrolone, since the latter is mostly deactivated by 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme that makes other hormones more androgenic.

Proviron is an anti-aromatase, so obviously anti-estrogens would be futile and redundant. Blood pressure medication for those prone to hypertension may be wise, as this DHT can increase the blood pressure.


Abstract refuting that Proviron is not highly suppressive

Here is the study I was referring to. Only 85 men out of 250 showed any suppression. Proviron did not shut down the HPTA in any of the subjects and that was at 150mg for 1 year. I would say its pretty safe and has very little effect on one's HPTA

This study shows no effect on normal LH and FSH with 100-150mg/ d mesterolone, and decrease of FSH/LH that were elevated.
Proviron doesn't substitute Clomid as hpta therapy, but doesn't get in the way, either.
The effect of mesterolone on sperm count, on serum follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, plasma testosterone and outcome in idiopathic oligospermic men.

Varma TR, Patel RH.

Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, St. George's Hospital Medical School London, U.K.

Two hundred fifty subfertile men with idiopathic oligospermia (count less than 20 million/ml) were treated with mesterolone (100-150 mg/day) for 12 months. Seminal analysis were assayed 3 times and serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) luteinizing hormone (LH) and plasma testosterone were assayed once before treatment and repeated at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after the initiation of treatment. One hundred ten patients (44%) had normal serum FSH, LH and plasma testosterone, 85 patients (34%) had low serum FSH, LH and low plasma testosterone. One hundred seventy-five patients (70%) had moderate oligospermia (count 5 to less than 20 million/ml) and 75 patients (30%) had severe oligospermia (count less than 5 million/ml). Seventy-five moderately oligospermic patients showed significant improvement in the sperm density, total sperm count and motility following mesterolone therapy whereas only 12% showed improvement in the severe oligospermic group. Mesterolone had no depressing effect on low or normal serum FSH and LH levels but had depressing effect on 25% if the levels were elevated. There was no significant adverse effect on testosterone levels or on liver function. One hundred fifteen (46%) pregnancies resulted following the treatment, 9 of 115 (7.8%) aborted and 2 (1.7%) had ectopic pregnancy. Mesterolone was found to be more useful in patients with a sperm count ranging between 5 and 20 million/ml. Those with severe oligospermia (count less than 5 million) do not seem to benefit from this therapy.

Effect of non aromatizable androgens on LHRH and TRH responses in primary testicular failure.

Spitz IM, Margalioth EJ, Yeger Y, Livshin Y, Zylber-Haran E, Shilo S.

We have assessed the gonadotropin, TSH and PRL responses to the non aromatizable androgens, mesterolone and fluoxymestrone, in 27 patients with primary testicular failure. All patients were given a bolus of LHRH (100 micrograms) and TRH (200 micrograms) at zero time. Nine subjects received a further bolus of TRH at 30 mins. The latter were then given mesterolone 150 mg daily for 6 weeks. The remaining subjects received fluoxymesterone 5 mg daily for 4 weeks and 10 mg daily for 2 weeks. On the last day of the androgen administration, the subjects were re-challenged with LHRH and TRH according to the identical protocol. When compared to controls, the patients had normal circulating levels of testosterone, estradiol, PRL and thyroid hormones. However, basal LH, FSH and TSH levels, as well as gonadotropin responses to LHRH and TSH and PRL responses to TRH, were increased.



Mesterolone administration produced no changes in steroids, thyroid hormones, gonadotropins nor PRL.




There was, however, a reduction in the integrated and incremental TSH secretion after TRH.
Fluoxymesterone administration was accompanied by a reduction in thyroid binding globulin (with associated decreases in T3 and increases in T3 resin uptake). The free T4 index was unaltered, which implies that thyroid function was unchanged.



In addition, during fluoxymesterone administration, there was a reduction in testosterone, gonadotropins and LH response to LHRH.


Basal TSH did not vary, but there was a reduction in the peak and integrated TSH response to TRH. PRL levels were unaltered during fluoxymesterone treatment.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS

these are the reasons why these boards exist to see what others have learned from the experiances and use of these drugs. I almost never follow
the clinical drug profiles, In my experiance my gains are very different then what they state.

T-bol and D-bol or any other oral you want is not a good cycle! Test is best - its what helps make you a big boy! My suggestion is do a proper cycle - do go half ass!

If you need help with the cycle just ask!

Cheers

TBol rocks! I did a 6 weeks "cycle" and I kept 5 kg out of it!
I gained about 7 kg and lost 2 during pct (water). I gained almost all weight the 2-3 first weeks. I did a 3 week pct like this:

My PCT.
1 week: 100mg Clomid + 40mg Nolva
2 week: 50mg Clomid + 30mg Nolva
3 week: 50mg Clomid + 20mg Nolva

But I wouldnt use tbol in a cutting cycle, becuse you get very hungry. It feels like your stomach is empty all the time. And if it takes to long between meals you get some pain. So you need to keep your food intake high.

Wild. Im actually have total opposite reactions with my cycle, which im currently taking:
100 mg test prop EOD
20 mg Tbol
20 mg Anavar
25mg Proviron

I am finding that this cycle takes away my appetite!! Hard to believe but true. Lucky enough I'm using ISS Gainer Matrix protein, which every 60 grams of protein is 668 calories and 100+ carbs. My shakes also include Flax Seed oil, and glutamine, and sometimes a spash of creatine post workout.

Im coming up on the end of my 2nd week. My weight is still gaining even with little appettie, but it might also be that I am actually eating a solid breakfast every morning now, and by slid I mean im going to chik fil a lol. But hey, chicken and eggs both for breakfast, perfect bodybuilding diet. Im about 205 right now, as I am technically doing a "cutting" cycle, the reduced calories arent bothering me yet (well, with the gainer matrix i might not actually be losing anything at all). I am doing cardio 3-4 times a week. I noticed my energy for weight training is slightly diminished, but it might be due to tee amount of cardio ive been doing, and my body isnt used to it. I am noticing that my muscles are getting harderall around though, which makes me happy, plus my abs are really showing So overall im enjoying the cycle, I dont see hthe strength gains yet but i know its jsut the begnning of a fun 10 weeks
