Of all the anabolics we have available the Stanozolol hormone is one of the most well-known largely thanks to its use in professional sports. The Stanozolol hormone truly came to light during the 1988 Olympics when Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive to the hormone. Of course you may be asking what is Stanozolol; you know it simply as Winstrol. Countless athletes from all walks of life buy Winstrol as it is very effective, generally well-tolerated and simply abundantly available. When we say countless athletes buy Winstrol we're not only referring to men but women as well as this is one of the few anabolics women can use.
Perhaps one of the few steroids that have very little use in a traditional bulking cycle, those who buy Winstrol will normally do so for cutting cycles and in the case of performance athletes as means of providing a slight bump in strength. In any case, you will find you can buy Winstrol in injectable and oral tablet form and in either case you have the same hormone in every way. Regardless of purpose of use this can be a fine choice for many performance enhancers and if you're uncertain as to if it is for you we'll hopefully answer any lingering questions.
The Anabolic steroid Stanozolol, most commonly known by the trade name Winstrol is an Anabolic steroid of a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) nature. Only slightly androgenic the Stanozolol hormone possess a potent Anabolic nature and by its nature increases nitrogen retention, protein synthesis and greatly lowers SHBG. This SHBG factor is very important as it frees up more testosterone to be used in the body and what's more Winny as it is often called has this effect to a degree surpassing most other anabolics.
As by its nature those who buy Winstrol will have purchased a C17-Alpha-Alkylated (C17-aa) Anabolic steroid. This classification is one shared by most all oral anabolics with the exception of Primobolan and Proviron but unlike most injectable steroids the injectable Winstrol Depot is also a C17-aa steroid. This is an important point of discussion as C17-aa steroid are toxic to the liver. The C17-aa nature refers to a structural change of the hormone at the 17th carbon position that allows it to survive the first pass through the liver; without this structural change the hormone would be destroyed before a single benefit could be obtained. As a C17-aa steroid Winny is one of the more liver toxic steroids; not as toxic as Halotestin but high on the list. Use by most men should not exceed 8 weeks and use by most women should not exceed 6 weeks. In any case, those who buy Winstrol will need to administer the hormone frequently. The hormone does not possess a half-life in the traditional sense as it has no ester but does dissipate in a similar fashion. The approximate half-life of Winstrol is 9 hours for tabs and 24 hours for the injectable Winstrol Depot.
Those who buy Winstrol most commonly do for two reasons; increasing strength and enhancing conditioning. For the performance athlete this is simple; steroid with Winny and you're stronger and faster; end of story. For the physique minded individual this steroid will greatly preserve tissue and strength when dieting but more importantly enhance the physiques appearance once lean. By its nature Winstrol will promote a harder and more defined physique and one that is more vascular as well; two key components for physique minded individuals. No, if you are fat Winny will not make you hard; to enjoy this benefit you're going to need to be in a lean state. Very useful for physique based endeavors, while true it is the performance athlete who will benefit from this steroid more so than anyone else. Most athletes will normally choose the tablets as they only have a detection time of 3 weeks and as a lot of mass won't be obtained this hormone is easier to use when trying to fly under the radar and these are the reasons so many athletes buy Winstrol. It should be noted injectable Winstrol Depot has a detection time of approximately 9 weeks.
Women & Winny:
Most anabolics cannot be used by women as they will cause extreme symptoms of virilization that can destroy their very femininity. However, there are exceptions to this rule and Winny is one of those exceptions. Women who buy Winstrol will not find it to be the most female friendly steroid, that title belongs to Anavar but many will find they tolerate it in low doses quite well. Most women will need to keep the total dosing at 10mg every other day with some women tolerating 10mg every day. In some cases some will tolerate as much as 20mg per day depending on the individual needs and response but truly most women will never need more than 10mg and most will only need this every other day. If you steroid with doses of the 20mg nature you will only do so if you have experience with the hormone and have responded well with lower doses in the past. If problems arise you will need to discontinue altogether until you start again later on at a lower dose for the reasons below.
It must be stated; women who buy Winstrol still have a risk as virilization can still occur; the probability is simply lower compared to many other anabolics. If you steroid with higher doses the probability goes up and that's simply the way it is. If you start showing negative symptoms you are encouraged to discontinue use immediately. If you discontinue as soon as symptoms show you will find they will dissipate and fade away. If you ignore them and allow them to set in they can become permanent in nature. If this happens to you and you were running a high dose come off and perhaps try a lower more suitable dose the next time. If you were running a low dose and problems still occurred, unfortunately Winstrol is simply not for you.
Stacking & Doses:
Most who buy Winstrol will do so during cutting cycles as this steroid truly has no mass gaining attributes. During a cutting cycle Winny stacks very well with Testosterone (any form) Trenbolone, Equipoise and even low doses of Deca-Durabolin. We're not saying you should use all of these in one stack but each is an option for most men. In any case most men will find 50mg per day to be the perfect dosing with 100mg per day being the maximum dose and generally only for those who are advanced in physique based sports. For the performance athlete 50mg every other day is often as much as they ever need with many being fine with a lower dose of 20mg-25mg every other day.
For females who buy Winstrol our recommended dose is 10mg every other day as stated above and this is for physique sports and performance athletes. There are exceptions to this rule and you can read above in the "Women & Winny" section to find them. In any case, regardless of dosing most women will find Winny stacks well with Primobolan and Anavar as well as with non-steroidal items such as Nolvadex, Clenbuterol, Cytomel and Human Growth Hormone.
The Bottom Line:
The truth is simple; those who buy Winstrol have in their hands one of the best cutting steroids of all time and perhaps the most important steroid as it pertains to athletic performance. As the hormone is available in both tablet and injectable form, as they are identical in their structural makeup it does not matter which one you choose. It is said the injectable Winstrol Depot is more potent on a per milligram basis and this is true but we're talking about a very negligible amount and not enough to make one form more worthwhile over the other. In any case, with responsible use the desired end can be achieved and as that's all any performance enhancer truly ever wants that's the bottom the line.
