Winstrol is an anabolic androgenic steroid that is also known as stanozolol. It is one of the most used performance enhancers in bodybuilding and professional sports. It was developed in the 1960’s and its first usage was to help treat conditions like osteoporosis. Stanozolol is available in an oral and injectable form. Benefits are similar but side effects are a bit different. Weird as it sounds but as an injection it is much safer because it goes directly into the blood stream.
An oral form is much simpler to take but more damaging to liver. 40-80mg a day Is recommended dosage if you decided to go for tablets (take dosages twice a day due to its 10-hour half-life) and 50-100mg if you decided to go for injections. Androgen receptors found in bones and muscles are bonded by stanozolol. It achieves activation of AR which results in improved protein synthesis.
Stanozolol stimulates fat burning while it prevents loss of muscle mass. Your muscle gains gained during the workout will be safe. This steroid has high anabolic activity so take that in count. Results are almost instantaneous, but they don’t last long. Some advantages of stanozolol are increased strength and vascularity, fat loss, doesn’t cause water retention and men boobs, high efficiency, fast development of muscles, can be used by women.
It is popularly stacked with Testosterone or Sustanon. This is when you will experience true growth in both muscle mass and weight. In this cycle it is a kick-starter as testosterone kicks in after 4 weeks. Testosterone is used in dosages of 250-500mg per week and for 12 weeks while stanozolol is used for 4-6 weeks. If you don’t take the steroid responsibly you may experience side effects such as: nausea, joint pain, liver damage, suppression of testosterone production, acne, negative effects on cardiovascular system.
