Finaplix / Finabolan — trenbolone acetate

Finaplix and Finabolan are both non-legitimate pharmaceutical products. They are manufactured in underground labs of questionable means by crushing up 20 mg pellets of the cattle implant steroid Finaplix-H and dissolving them in a solution before suspension in oil.

Brand name Finaplix, Finabolan

Each of the Finaplix-H pellets contains 20 MG of Trenbolone Acetate and is implanted into cattle using an implant pistol. (Do not try this at home. OUCH!) . However, the black market products I encountered did contain 30 or 75MG/ML of Trenbolone Acetate and were sold in 30 ML vials… usually.

Trenbolone Acetate has an active-life of about 2 days. Since it is short acting, most male bodybuilder injected 1-3 ML every one -to- 2 days. Though some did use as much as 120 mg daily. Administration seldom exceeded 6 weeks.

Most considered Finaplix to be as effective as Parabolan. The drug was often used pre-contest for its hardening effects and questionable fat metabolizing qualities. The drug is highly androgenic, does not aromatize, and it remains anabolic even in a low calorie/high protein environment. The strength gains and post-training recovery realized during administration was “remarkable”. Quality lean mass gains were considered to be excellent and superior to those experienced from Masterone or Deca.

Trenbolone Acetate is highly liver and kidney toxic. For this reason, athletes reportedly consumed at least one gallon of water daily during use and used milk thistle during and after cycles. Gyno was not a problem with Trenbolone since the drug can not readily convert to estrogen. Prolonged or high dosage was said to lead to dark urine, and in some cases, blood in urine.

Trenbolones have a very high affinity for androgen receptor-sites. For this reason, the drug will inhibit other AAS from binding to muscle cell receptors adequately. It also means balding is quite possible if an athlete was genetically predisposed to a receding hair-line problem. Due to Trenbolone possessing very high androgen receptor-site affinity qualities, most athletes realized best results when stacked with drugs that are not dependant upon the same mode of cellular activation. Dianabol, Winstrol orals, and Anadrol-50 were common choices. Some athletes reported excellent results with few side effects when they had opted to stack Trenbolone with high receptor-site affinity drugs such as Nandrolones. Another preferred option was multiple stage type Max Androgen Phases. (See "Building The Perfect Beast", book two of this series).

An interesting aspect of all Trenbolone products is their apparent unique ability to permanently shut down existing cortisol receptor-sites. This explains, in part, the exceptional post-cycle lean mass retention realized after protocols utilizing Trenbolones were discontinued. Since Trenbolones are a derivative of Nortestosterone (the active drug in Deca), it should not have been a surprise to realize such exceptional results.

*There were individuals whom had incorporated the use of dissolving the crushed pellets in oil through a simple solvent and cold filtering process. The end product was said to create a reasonably sterile solution. Reasonably sterile? That is like asking if someone is a little pregnant!

Finaplix is a veterinary cattle implant, which contains the potent androgenic steroid trenbolone acetate. This is the same drug which was once available as an injectable in the U.S., labeled Finaject, although it's production has been discontinued here and worldwide for about a decade. Finaplix was the last remaining pure trenbolone acetate, however it too had now been discontinued and replaced with Revalor, trenbolone acetate with a small amount of estradiol, an estrogen (see Revalor). Trenbolone acetate is a potent androgen, which will not readily convert to estrogen. Since in this case it is in the form of a cattle implant, administration is a bit difficult. Most commonly, these implant pellets are ground up and mixed with a 50/50 water/DMSO mix and applied to the skin daily. This homebrew transdermal mix is very effective, as seen in Finaplix's popularity. Some a little more daring have mixed their own Biweekly (or more frequent) injections, although I couldn't see this being a very sanitary practice. Either when applied to the skin, or injected, users report great strength and mass gains with no gyno or water retention. Along with being a strong muscle-building steroid, it is also noted as being very effective at burning fat. This has made it very appealing for competitive athletes looking to shed fat, while at the same time trying to avoid water retention and keep the hard physique, which a strong androgen helps bring about. It should be noted that this is not a beginner's steroid. Finaplix can be very toxic, especially to the kidneys. Since this is a strong androgen, related side effects such as acne and increased aggression are also very common. To be cautious, users will commonly limit their use of this drug to 4 or 6 weeks. Old lots of Finaplix are still available through some veterinary suppliers, and being an implant is not being controlled as a steroid. It will not be long before old lots are exhausted and pure trenbolone acetate will once again disappear.
