Branch Warren steroid cycle

Introduction

Branch Warren is a former professional bodybuilder and current entrepreneur from East Texas. He has won many professional contests in his bodybuilding career, including finishing second at Mr. Olympia and winning the Arnold classic. He has been bodybuilding since he was a teenager and competing. This article will take a look at his life and speculate on what steroids he used.

Statistics and accomplishment

Branch Warren at his peak stood at 5 foot 6 in 250 lb. He had 21inch arms, a 56inch chest, with a tight 34-inch waist. He was born in 1975, and as of this article is 46 years old. His bodybuilding career spanned three decades.

In 1992 he won teenage Mr. America and this was the start of his bodybuilding career. By the end of the 90s, he was placing at NPC Nationals in the top 4 and in 2001 won 1st place. In 2004, he got 8th place at the Night of Champions.

His Mr. Olympia history was consistent and impressive.

In 2005 he got 8th place, in 2006 12th Place, 2009 a distant 2nd Place to Jay Cutler with Dexter Jackson 1 point behind, 2010 he was in 3rd place behind Jay Cutler and Phil Heath. He would go on to place 9th in 2013, and 6th in 2014 and 2015

Dexter "The Blade" Jackson is one of the most unique bodybuilders in the sport today. He's not called “blade” for nothing. He's always sharp and lean. However, he has, in my opinion, one of the most roller coaster style careers in IFBB professional bodybuilding. Read More...

His biggest wins were the back-to-back Arnold Classic victories in 2011 and 2012.

Early life and marriage

Branch grew up in a rural part of Texas and found weight training as a teenager because it allowed him to improve his physique at a short stature. While he was in high school he started competing and winning competitions. He could not afford a gym membership so would sneak into gyms just to get in a workout. He is known for taking a short time off to improve his physique before jumping back into the competition world and being much improved. This is how he worked his way up in bodybuilding from a short skinny teenager to a colossal beast.

Branch is married to Trish Warren, who is also a solid bodybuilder in her own right, and they have a teenage daughter.

Social media and businesses

Nicknamed the Texas Titan, branch has focused a lot of his time on his jerky business which he named wickedcutz. He also sells BBQ seasoning and has a clothing line with motivational words to inspire other bodybuilders.

His Instagram page has almost 1M followers. He posts lots of bodybuilding pictures, interviews he's done, motivational lifting videos, and things like guns, big dogs, trucks, and other Texas type of ‘manly’ things to draw in the young male demographic to his products.

Training

Branch focused on weight training 5 times a week and also threw in cardio sessions to stay ripped. Each weight training session would be a different part of the body so he would implement a 5-day split routine.

Unilateral training is a unique approach to weight training where exercises are done with one arm. You commonly see this with bicep and tricep training or other smaller muscles. But have you ever attempted this type of training with the bigger compound movements? I have and here is whats I found. Read More...

For example, Monday he would do chest, Tuesday would be back, Wednesday rest, Thursday legs, Friday arms, and Saturday core. The number of sets would vary between 22-30 sets per workout and his rep range would vary from 8-20, taking some reps to failure. His rep range changed with age, in his early years, he would do fewer reps and go heavier.

Nutrition

During his bulking, he consumed up to 500 grams of protein per day along with upwards of 400 grams of carbs. He is a big fan of chicken and during his big bulking phases was known to eat up to 3 lbs of just chicken per day. Eggs are also a huge part of his diet along with fish and potatoes.

The rest of his diet has vegetables, rice, and some red meat.

He also supplements your typical bodybuilder products like creatine, fat burners, pre-workouts, and protein powder. 

Creatine is the most widely used performance-enhancement compound in the world, and has been used for the past 20 years. Industry statistics show that more and more creatine is consumed every year by athletes around the globe. The reason why creatine continues growing in popularity among athletes is simply because it works.Read More...

Opinion

Branch Warren is one of the most talented and hardworking bodybuilders of his era. The only reason he did not win Mr. Olympia was he ran into Jay Cutler and Phil Heath during the years he was peaking. He comes from very modest roots in Texas and applies those attributes to his bodybuilding lifestyle.

He is still going strong even in his mid-40s, and if he chose to get back into bodybuilding I believe he would be able to do quite well especially in his age group. However, I personally do not believe he will go back as he seems happy focusing on his family and his businesses. Maybe he will prove me wrong though?

Steroid Use

One thing about Branch Warren is he's one of the most intense weightlifters we've seen. Early in his career, he would lift as much weight as he possibly could using adrenaline to push very heavy weights around like styrofoam. As he got older he backed off and started lifting higher reps but kept his intensity. Although he's never admitted to steroid use we can speculate on some steroids he would have used.

Testosterone Propionate 1200 mg a week

Trenbolone acetate 1000mg a week

Deca Durabolin 1200mga week (especially during his early career)

Equipoise Boldenone 800mg a week

Anadrol 150mgs a day

Winstrol 100mgs a day and/or Masteron Propionate 1000mgs a week (ahead of shows)

HGH up to 20IU’s per day

Insulin up to 15IU’s per day

Originally, Oxymetholone, better known as Anadrol or A50, was developed by Zoltan Pharmaceuticals, which doesn't exist anymore, in the 60s. Due to the ignorance of the time, and the lack of other alternatives, the drug was even given to children. Oxymetholone was used to help with muscle growth in patients with malnourishment and growth problems; in addition, it was given to osteoporosis and anemia patients.Read More...
