Darrem Charles Steroid Cycle



Darrem Charles is an IFBB Pro Bodybuilder from Trinidad who has been competing since the late 80's up until 2017. He has over a dozen show wins and has placed at the Mr. Olympia 9 times.

His peak stats are 5'9'' and 245 pounds with over 22" arms. In this article, we will go over his life and successes, and also talk speculate about the steroid cycle we think he would have used.

Early life

Charles was born in the summer of 1969. He loved sports growing up and got into strength training in his early teenage years. His results were outstanding very early on and he studied weight training by reading a lot of books. Still, as just a teenager, he won the 1986 WNBF contest. Then a few years later won the 1989 Trinidad Invitational and then the World Amateur Championships in his very early 20's.

Moving up in bodybuilding


He knew he had to come to America if he was to make a name for himself and his hero was Frank Zane. In 1992, he got 12th at the Chicago Pro vs. some stiff competition which was a great experience for him being up close to guys like Kevin Levrone. In the early 90's he would compete at the Arnold Classic, Ironman Pro, and several serious shows. His top showing was at the 1995 Florida Pro where he got 3rd place.

Mr. Olymipa

Charles first Mr. Olympia was in 1995, at 26 years old, where he got 15th place. At the '98 Mr. Olympia, he got 13th.

  • 2005 9th
  • 2006 14th
  • 2007 12th
  • 2008 11th
  • 2009 16th

During the 2000s and early 2010s, he had numerous top 10 finishes in the stiffest competitions, along with 18 IFBB wins. He finished up his career competing in physique competitions and his consistency was incredible even into his mid 40's.

Social media and today


Charles does a lot of guest posing and also works as a personal trainer.
His social media is modest with around 30K followers



Charles does not like working out large muscle groups in the same session so he implements split routines in his training program. This is what most all high-end bodybuilders do and it works well. An example of this would be doing legs on Sunday, Chest on Monday, Back on Wednesday, Arms on Friday, etc. This allows time for your muscles to rest in between days while you work other muscles.



Charles thinks you are wasting your time working out if you aren't eating well. Being someone from a part of the world where they take natural eating very seriously, he believes in eating organic and free-range produce and meats/eggs.

His diet is heavy on eggs, vegetables, chicken, brown rice, and fish.


His social media page boasts a lot of inspirational quotes. He seems to bring a positive mindset to life unlike many other people on social media which isn't a coincidence when it comes to his success. This is one of the easiest ways you can improve your life by eliminating negativity and only allowing positivity in your life.

Mother passing away

In 2002, his manager Dan Solomon confirmed that Charles's mother was shot in New York. He would go on to compete at the Mr. Olympia that year anyway in his mother's honor and finishing in 16th place.

Steroid useSteroid use

Charles started his career naturally and did well at natural competitions. But to get to Mr. Olympia level and stay so consistent you must keep up with your peers and use anabolic steroids. We can speculate on what his steroid cycle looked like in the 2000s.

    • 600mg a week Testosterone Cypionate
    • 800mg a week Trenbolone

Injectable trenbolone acetate was first released for use in the cattle industry in the 1980’s under the name Finajet. At the time, it contained the short acting acetate ester. This Trenbolone preparation was used to beef up cattle right before slaughter. Read more..

    • 1000mgs a week Masteron

Masteron (Drostanolone) is a unique anabolic steroid because of the way it is derived from DHT (dihydrotestosterone). It is altered by the addition of a methyl group at the carbon 2 position. This structural change is what makes masteron anabolic, and what makes it function the way it does. Read more..

    • 1200mg a week Primobolan

Primobolan (known as Metenolone enanthate, Primo) is an anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) that comes in both injectable and oral form. It is used by bodybuilders who want something with few side effects, no estrogenic activity, and who pursue lean muscle mass. Primo is considered 'weak' and this is true to some extent; you will not break lifting records or gain a lot of weight on this steroid, but you will gain slow and quality mass over many weeks.

At that point, anabolic steroids were almost unheard of on the market, and he was part of the founders of the 1st few oral steroids to hit the bodybuilding scene. Later on, Searle was purchased by Pfizer and anavar was discontinued. Read more..
