I have received several questions recently on the subject of Turanabol. It seems I was right when I said this drug has a strong ‘cult’ following! The most common question by far concerns the dosing procedure….

Q: I am currently using Turanabol (T-Bol) and would like to know the best way to take it. My current dose is 40mg/day. Should I take this all at the same time or split it up throughout the day?

A: Turanabol is very similar to Dianabol in terms of its half- life in the body (i.e. around 6 hours). With this in mind, and in order to maintain a steady level of the drug in the system, I would recommend that you space it out evenly throughout the day. This would mean taking 10mg every 3-4 hours.

Q: How long before I start feeling results from Turanabol and how long can I safely take it for?

A: Most people notice an almost immediate increase in vascularity with this drug. However, in terms of strength and weight gains, you will usually have to wait for two or three weeks for those to kick in. As far as how long you should use it for, the golden rule with oral compounds is no longer than 6-8 weeks. This helps you to avoid undue liver stress.

And now for something completely different….

Q: What is the difference between Viagra and Cialis? My source has both of them and I am not sure which one to go for?\

A: Cialis has a longer half-life in the body compared to Viagra, which leads to a longer duration of action. This is where Cialis picks up its nickname, ‘The Weekend Pill’. The molecular structure of Cialis differs significantly from Viagra and it does not cause the visual disturbances often associated with Viagra.

Cialis also has the added benefit of producing better muscle pumps while in the gym due to its stronger effect on nitric oxide production. There have also been reports that Cialis raises testosterone levels and it may do this by reducing estrogen levels. So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, my vote would be for Cialis.

Finally, a question on thyroid hormone supplementation…

Q: I recently read your review of ‘Cytomix’ and was concerned by the high amount of T3 it contains relative to T4. At 60mcg T3 per tablet I am a little worried that, as a first time user, this would be too high. Any help would be appreciated.

A: You are right on track with what I was thinking when I came across this product. My first thought was that either the manufacturer got the T3 – T4 ratio mixed up on the label or it was significantly under dosed. Either way, thyroid medication is not for the beginner and it is not something you want to mess around with. If you are used to taking high doses of T3 then this product should pose no problems. However, for anyone just experimenting and looking for a safe way to start, hold on for a week or so and I will be highlighting a compound with more favorable ratios. Oh, and for those who can’t wait that long, go to I believe they are now listing their new T4/T3 mix product.

Leigh Penman, in addition to be a staff writer at MuscleSport Mag, has been writing for bodybuilding magazines, websites and nutritional supplement companies since 1985. Whilst residing in the UK, she earned the reputation of being one of the top female writers in bodybuilding-related media. Her credits included being a contributing editor on all the magazines in production as well as filling the shoes of Ladies Editor and Showbiz Editor on two publications (the later being on Arnold’s sanctioned magazine, ‘Bodypower’). During this time she also competed successfully on four occasions (placing in the top four in all contests).

Relocating to New York in the late 1990s she focused her writing attention to crystal healing techniques and metaphysics – however, she still maintained a five day workout schedule during this time and gained her personal training certificate.

Having also studied pharmacology in relation to sports performance, her writing began taking her in that direction until the present day which sees her embarking on a return to the magazine world, as well as extending her web-related work in the bodybuilding and fitness field.

Leigh has been working out for close to thirty years so she is clearly a writer who ‘walks her talk.’
