Before you can understand why Trenbolone works the way it does, you first need to understand that you have two types of fat, or adipose tissue, in your body. First, you have visceral adipose tissue, which surrounds your organs and has very little effect on your overall appearance. Second, you have subcutaneous adipose tissue, which rests just below the skin and has a tremendous impact on your appearance. As Trenbolone binds to androgen receptors (which it does very well), it inhibits lipid uptake. This means that your body cannot continue to add to its subcutaneous fat stores. As such, when you work out, you burn away the subcutaneous adipose tissue and obtain the “cut” appearance. This is why Tren is widely regarded as the best steroid to lose weight.
Laws and Penalties: Concerns over growing illegal AAS abuse by teenagers, and many of the just discussed long-term effects, led Congress in 1991 to place the whole AAS class of drugs into Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Under this legislation, AAS are defined as any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to T (other than estrogens, progestins, and corticosteroids) that promotes muscle growth. The possession or sale of AAS without a valid prescription is illegal. Since 1991, simple possession of illegally obtained AAS carry a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a minimum $1,000 fine if this is an individual’s first drug offense. The maximum penalty for trafficking (selling or possessing enough to be suspected of selling) is five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 if this is the individual’s first felony drug offense. If this is the second felony drug offense, the maximum period of imprisonment and the maximum fine both double. While the above listed penalties are for federal offenses, individual states have also implemented fines and penalties for illegal use of AAS. State executive offices have also recognized the seriousness of AAS abuse and other drugs of abuse in schools. For example, the State of Virginia enacted a law that will allow student drug testing as a legitimate school drug prevention program (48, 49).
