Turinabol vs Anavar?


New member
Wanted some perspective mostly on Tbol by https://steroidsfax.org/ . I have run Var, and wasn’t all that impressed. I thought maybe it was fake. At the same time I did set some PRs on squats and bench (after being sick pretty much the whole week before my PLing meet). Those PRs could be attributed to the Test E I was running (325 mg/wk), the training, etc, which makes it harder to determine what impact it had.
For those that have run both, what are your thoughts? On a mg vs mg basis which produced more gains? Side effects?
I really wanted to like the var, but maybe it just isn’t for me, maybe my var was fake, maybe it was real, and I just underestimated it? Tbol offers a similar risk / reward ratio on paper. Does that play out in reality?
Which would you run and why?

All steroids are derived from testosterone.
Turinabol is one such steroid
this does not mean that it will function in your body the same way testosterone does. Different steroids have been developed for various purposes to emphasize one or another positive benefit of testosterone. This manipulation causes certain positive and negative aspects to be emphasized. For example a steroid might be highly anabolic https://jbhnews.com/best-steroid-to-lose-belly-fat-easy-for-beginners/23699/ but also have an affinity to aromatize (turn into estrogen) via the aromatase enzyme. Testosterone does this naturally but some steroids will be very powerful whilst exhibiting this conversion more strongly than baseline testosterone.
I’m not an expert on Turinabol but my impression of it is that it’s a more mild steroid used for mass gaining. It’s an oral which means a short half life and liver toxicity (probably why Jon Jones likes it)
That being said - if you’re going to cycle Turinabol or any other steroid, you should always have a base of testosterone going with it. This should be a minimum of 250mg a week as steroids will all suppress natural testosterone production and you’ll feel like shit while on cycle.
as always - I don’t recommend you take steroids anyway. It’s a hassle and unless your lifestyle revolves around it, it’s not worth the expense and health complications.
