Winstrol is a popular brand name for the anabolic steroid stanozolol. This compound is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, although its activity is much milder than this androgen in nature. It is technically classified as an anabolic steroid, shown to exhibit a slightly greater tendency for muscle growth than androgenic activity in early studies. While dihydrotestosterone really only provides androgenic side effects when administered, stanozolol instead provides quality muscle growth. Admittedly the anabolic properties of this substance are still mild in comparison to many stronger compounds, but it is still a reliable builder. Its efficacy as an anabolic could even be comparable to Dianabol, however Winstrol does not carry with it the same tendency for water retention. Stanozolol also contains the same c17 methylation we see with Dianabol, an alteration used so that oral administration is possible. To spite this design however, there are many injectable versions of this steroid produced.
Winstrol has a unique ability to lower the amount of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), more than any other steroid on the market. SHBG is a hormone that binds to other steroids in your cycle making them useless; in simple terms, it makes taking too much steroids useless as it neutralizes them. However, stanozolol allows you to stack multiple steroids in your cycle without the need to lower your dosages. An interesting stack would be winstrol and proviron, allowing for maximum SHBG reduction and maximizing cycle effectiveness.
Stanozolol Injection Cycle Dosages
Dosages of 50-100mg are common for the injectable format of the steroid. Cycles tend to last 5-6 weeks in duration. Those new to steroid use and/or Stanozolol would be best opting for the lower end of the dosage range, with the more experience users maybe opting for the upper end of the dose mentioned, or maybe surpassing it if they should decide to (although the extra benefits of such a dose will quickly diminish and be over-shadowed by the negative hepatotoxic nature of the drug i.e. it is harsh on the liver).
Stanozolol is a popular steroid to stack with other anabolic steroids during a cycle. The compounds stacked with the drug will mainly be determined by the goals of the user, although many bodybuilders tend to use Stanozolol for cutting phases (when the goal is to preserve lean muscle tissue whilst reducing body fat). Those looking to build muscle tissue may stack Stanozolol with testosterone due to Stanozolol’s ability to heighten the anabolic effects of the cycle whilst also adding no oestrogen side effects to the stack. On the other hand, stacking Stanozolol with a drug such as Trenbolone is popular during a cutting phase where the user can accomplish a very hard and defined appearance whilst reducing bodyfat via cardio and diet.
It is worth mentioning that Stanozolol has long been popular with track and field athletes (the ones that dope at least). The drug adds some lean body mass, but is very effective for those who do not wish to add much weight, yet add muscle strength and power. It is therefore popular among sprinters, jumpers and throwers.
Stanozolol Injection Side Effects
Just like any anabolic steroid, Stanozolol comes with undesirable side effects.
The good news is that Stanozolol is considered a mild steroid with minimal side effects. Many steroid users are wary of anabolic hormones thanks to horror stories of gynecomastia that are shared on message boards.
Stanozolol doesn’t aromatize, the process responsible for the breast growth in otherwise healthy men, making man boobs a non-issue. These consequences can be mitigated and even prevented with a thorough understanding of how they work.
Androgen Suppression: Androgens are male sex hormones, such as testosterone. All androgenic anabolic steroids suppress the HPTA, which is responsible for androgen production; some cause more suppression than others.
This is due to steroids resembling testosterone so closely that the HPTA believes it’s making too many androgens and ceases production.
Stanozolol is one of the lighter steroids in terms of androgen suppression, but supplementing with testosterone during a cycle is still prudent.
Hepatotoxic: Hepatotoxic is a fancy word for liver damaging. Any drug you take will tax your liver, from steroids to alcohol.
The degree to which a Stanozolol injection will damage your liver depends on a multitude of factors such as dosage, cycle duration, general liver health and liver genetics.
A 6-8 week Winny cycle will not cause permanent liver damage so long as Stanozolol injection dosage is adequate.
