In this guide, I’m going to give you some expert and essential insight about an underrated compound—Turinabol.

Over the years, I’ve seen that Turinabol’s reputation has been marred by some misconceptions, and I’m convinced that we all need to know the scientific truth, not public opinion, and then make well thought out decisions ourselves.

I’m going to bust the myths around it. And I’m also going to explain the benefits and side effects of using Turinabol for beginners, advanced level users, and women.

What is Turinabol?

Let me start by giving you a brief background about Turinabol, which is popularly known as Tbol. Tbol is an AAS androgenic anabolic steroid that is usually ingested orally. It is a Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone or CDMT steroid.

Chemical Structure DepictionIts molecular structure is definitely easier than its long name– C20H27ClO2. A lot of chemists also call it 4-Chloromethandienone. It has a molar mass of 334.88 g/mol. Don’t be puzzled, I don’t expect you to remember this scientific info.

It is a derivative of Dianabol or Dbol. Structurally Tbol is a mix of two anabolic steroids: Dianabol and Clostebol. While it retains the base structure of Dbol, it also has an added chlorine atom at the fourth carbon, which is a typical feature of Clostebol.

It was originally developed by a pharmaceutical company by the name of JenaPharm, in East Germany. The patent on it was issued in 1961. Tbol is the brain child of renowned chemist Albert Stachowiak who combined 4-chlorotestosterone or clostebol with metandienone to create this exceptional steroid which does not need to be injected and can be easily taken orally.

Though it was originally developed to cure patients from wasting diseases where they suffered from a loss of strength and bone mass, it soon became popular as a performance enhancement steroid.

Since its conception in the 1960’s it has been widely used by athletes, physicians, and body builders for its favourable androgenic and anabolic effects.

Fast Fact: It was used by East Germany to enhance the performance of their athletes as a part of their Doping program.

Tbol is widely used across the world by body builders, athletes and fitness aficionados to improve their training performance. It is especially popular in countries like Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine and is rapidly gaining popularity in the western world as well.

How does Turinabol work?

It’s quite interesting to know how Tbol works.  It works like all other AAS– anabolic androgenic steroids.  Tbol helps to enhance protein levels in the body cells, especially those of the skeletal muscles.

Also, it is quite effective in reducing the water retention in the body cells including muscle cells. This helps in reducing bloating, which results in better sculpted muscles. Tbol is metabolized by the liver.

What are the benefits of Turinabol?

There are several positive benefits of Tbol that I was personally surprised with. Firstly, it has a very obvious separation of its androgenic to anabolic effects and it is a much less stronger anabolic steroid as compared to its parent hormone Dbol. This is important – because it essential means that Tbol has all the advantages of Dbol without its strong side-effects.

A lot of people do not know that Tbol is a great strength enhancer due to its SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) reducing qualities. It helps to reduce the SHBG level in the body which leads to a rise in release of testosterone. An increase in testosterone helps athletes by strengthening their muscle tissue, increasing the muscle tissue, and by reducing fatty tissues. I’ve experienced that Tbol helps improve the effect of work outs.

Tbol also helps in increasing the nitrogen binding by the muscles which promotes better muscle protection both during as well as after training.

It is also known to help enhance vascularity and is widely used for bulking up. It helps prevent fat build up and using Tbol can be of substantial help if you are thinking of bulking up. It also helps during the cutting phase, as it helps to lose only fat and not muscle mass.

Tbol promotes a stronger muscle mass as it reduces the water retention from the muscular cells. Tbol promotes protein levels in the body and helps increase the protein synthesis process, which is very suitable for protecting already training muscles.

A common expression I come across when I interview weightlifters and bodybuilders about their experience with Tbol is that it helps to reduce the recovery time between workouts. This is because it reduces the tiring effect of the stress hormone Cortisol.

Lastly, it is suitable for increasing the red blood cells in the body which are vital for increasing the oxygenation process of the body tissues.

Side Effects of Turinabol:

Let’s thwart the most widespread misconception about the side effects of Tbol. Contrary to popular belief, Turinabol hardly has any negative side effects in comparison to the many benefits it provides.

Though it is derived from Dbol, TBol is its much milder version. It also has a relatively low anabolic to androgenic ratio of 54:6, making it a very mild version of anabolic steroids. In fact, it is safe for consumption by women as well.

Alert: Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not consume Tbol.

Due to its mild anabolic to androgenic ratio, Tbol has relatively lesser and milder side effects. But like all AAS drugs it is not completely free from side effects.

Some of the side effects of Tbol that you may consider include the rise in the bad cholesterol level in the body along with the fall in the good cholesterol which may result in cardiovascular disease in the long run. It may also lead to extra hair growth on the body and may result in an acne outbreak in some cases.

Since Tbol is metabolized in the liver, prolonged usage of Tbol may have a negative effect on liver functioning or cause hepatic damage in extremely rare cases.

Women should be careful of Tbol overdosage. An over dose of Tbol in women may result in side effects like developing masculine traits such as a manly voice and male like hair or the face and body. It may even cause smaller breasts, facial acne or pimples, and an irregular period cycle. In rare cases, women may experience aggressive behavioural traits.

Turinabol Dosage & Cycle:

The Tbol dosage as well as its suggested cycle typically depends on your main purpose behind taking it. My experience says that the cycle for bulking should be different from the cutting cycle.

If you are a fitness enthusiast, athlete, or bodybuilder and are looking for a great supplement to increase your mass and lean muscles, then Tbol will work perfectly for you.

Start with a lower dose, and go on gradually increasing to about eighty milligrams to aid your bulking phase. I would recommend that beginners may try starting Tbol at around twenty milligrams per day while advanced users may start at approximately forty milligrams per day.

Women should take no more than ten milligrams a day.

It has a half life of approximately sixteen hours. So, it is enough if you take a single dosage daily. For your cutting phase, you will not need more than forty milligrams per day.

Though there is no time preference in terms of when to take the oral dosage, I recommend taking the dose in the morning. Or you may split the dose in two parts, taking half the dose in the morning and the remaining half dosage in the evening. You may ingest an oral dosage or tablet with water or juice.

An ideal Tbol cycle is about eight weeks. I have noticed that for best results, you need to remember that a short cycle works well for a heavy dose, but if you prefer a lesser dose, you may need a longer cycle for optimum results. Beginners may try a one to four week cycle, while advanced users can try Tbol for not more than twelve weeks.

An approximate cycle of Tbol varies from one to twelve weeks and the dose is about 30 mg per day depending on your usage and requirements.

As with any steroid and regardless of dosage and cycle,  I urge everyone to not make abrupt changes to the dosage. It is also recommended to follow up with a post cycle therapy for best results, and the advice is backed by most of the users I’ve talked to during the research for this guide.

If you are confused about the dosage and cycle, my advice is that you consult an expert before deciding the type of steroid, dosage and cycle.

Turinabol Before and After Results:

I’ve attached the above image as a visual attestation of the positive effects of Tbol.  As you can see that the model has benefited largely from a Tbol cycle of about 4 to 5 weeks.

It has helped him remarkably in the bulking up process. There is a significant increase in muscle mass and strength. Along with that I can also see a visible difference in reduction of fatty tissues. His muscles are leaner and stronger than before. And there is hardly any sign of water retention in the model’s body.

The good thing about Tbol is that it can be used by both beginners as well as advanced level athletes without worrying about side effects.

Where can you buy Turinabol from?

In the United States, Tbol is enlisted as a Supplement or Schedule-III drug. The possession of anabolic steroids is strictly prohibited in the United States. So, it is not manufactured by major companies in the United States.

However, it can be ordered online from vendors, or e-commerce websites based in Canada or the UK. Do your due diligence on country/state laws, and cross border shipments of pharmaceutical products, as the rules and options vary hugely across geographies.


Tbol is a little known anabolic steroid which has been underestimated as a result of the side effects of its parent – the Dbol. If you are a beginner level athlete, body builder or even a woman, consider using the Tbol for better results in less time and with little or no side effects.
