What is Turinabol

what is turinabol

Turinabol is oral anabolic steroid with weak androgenic activity and a moderate force of action. Turinabol was originally released in 1965 by the pharmaceutical company Jenapharm in Germany. Due to the slight androgenic activity it can be used by both men and women. Such side effects as masculinization were diagnosed in women in long-term courses over 10 weeks. From 1968 to 1989, over 10,000 athletes have experienced this drug and was very pleased.

In 1980 turinabol was widespread among bodybuilders, powerlifters and athletes. Then the drug for a time disappeared from the shelves as rapidly as they appeared. Turinabol (4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone) technically is a mixture of 4 – chlorotestosterone and methandrostenolone (Danabol).

When using turinabol you will not notice a spike in power performance or the rapid buildup of meat. The drug acts slowly, but you will get much better results. The power of a drug lies in its ability to induce moderate growth with minimal side effects.

Oral turinabol is considered to be the ideal option for drying. It makes the muscles stiff and dry, like Winstrol and Trenbolone, just with a less pronounced effect. However, the drug is characterized by a small fluid retention in the body, so it is not used by athletes immediately prior to competition. Unlike Anavar and Winstrol, which are normally used in the courses of drying, Turinabol tends to ride the middle ground and give, moreover, an increase in mass, however small.

Like most other anabolic steroids Turinabol methylated to protect a molecule by metabolic degradation in the liver, thus, allowing you to get into the blood unchanged. This process imparts a certain degree of hepatoxicity, although Turinabol is rather soft in this respect.

Effects of Turinabol

Reduces the level of SHBG (SHBG — binding globulin sex hormones).

SHBG is a glycoprotein contained in blood and binding up to 98% of all AC. After binding, the steroid is firmly attached to the protein, and is not able to join the androgenic receptors to stimulate muscle growth.

Increases power output.
Accelerates the set of muscle mass.

Estrogenic Side Effects

Turinabol is a modified form of Danabol, but while Danabol really has little tendency to aromatization, chlordehydromethyltestosterone does not. It is the result of substitution (the chlorine atom, which was attached to the 4th carbon group on the steroid structure)in the 4th position of the attached chlorine atom), which prevents the enzyme aromatase to convert into estrogen Turinabol. It is believed that estrogenic side effects do not have a place to be, regardless of the dosage of the drug.

Androgenic Side Effects

Between 1 and 2 carbon atoms, and a modification of the 4 – chloro conducted a double bond, which was to ensure reduction of androgenic strength. Indeed, it greatly reduced the risk of androgenic side effects, but has not excluded them completely. When using moderate doses of the drug, the side effects will be quite rare. With the increase in dosage will increase the risk of side effects, especially in women. Additionally, Turinabol is metabolized by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, and this means that the use of inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors such as Finasteride or proscar, will not help in the fight against androgenic activity.

Increased secretion of the sebaceous glands.
The enhancement of the growth of hair.
Hypertrophy of the prostate.
Virilization (women).

The production of endogenous testosterone

In one way or another, but all speakers have the ability to suppress natural endogenous testosterone production, and Turinabol is no exception. It is strongly recommended to undergo the PCT, which should include the use of ancillary compounds such as Nolvadex, HCG. The average time of PKT 4-6 weeks.


Because Turinabol is C17-alpha alkilirovanny oral steroid, it negatively affects the liver. Clinical data regarding levels of toxic effects on the liver Turinabol is quite difficult to find, but logic suggests that due to its low androgenic activity, toxicity would be negligible. But “minor toxicity” means that it is present. It is known that the rate at which the athlete uses from 5 to 35 mg Turinabol and lasting up to 8 weeks, toxic effects on the liver is minimal. But these data cannot be attributed to sprotsmen who takes 80 mg a day, and the course of his much longer. However, Turinabol is still considered to be the least hepatotoxic anabolic steroid, along with Annavaram and Primobolan.

Cardiovascular Side Effects

Cardiovascular risks, changes in the level of cholesterol common side effects for all anabolic steroids, but not for Turinabol. Although, it is believed that the drug may significantly increase the level of LDL (“bad cholesterol”).

Clinical data regarding the effects of Turinabol on the cardiovascular system practically do not exist, but we know that the drug has a significant impact on the ability of processing of cholesterol by the liver.

Turinabol Cycle

turinabol cycleStandard dosage of turinabol for men 40-60 mg per day. Due to the fact that the drug has a short half-life, recommended daily dose is divided and taken 2-3 times daily.

Cycle No. 1 — for beginners

Duration: 6 weeks.

Dosage: 40 mg Turinabol solo daily.

Effect: + a couple of kg of quality muscle.

Cycle No. 2 is More effective and the strong variation of the rate

Duration: 6-8 weeks.

Dosage: 50 mg Turinabol every day + 50 mg testosterone propionate every other day.

Effect: improving the quality of mass.

Cycle No. 3 — for experienced athletes

Duration: 12 weeks.


Weeks 1-9: 1G boldenone week 750 mg testosterone enanthate per week + turinabol 60mg daily.
10-12 weeks: 200mg testosterone propionate a day + 60 mg stanozolol daily.

Effect: a set of muscle mass.
