Winstrol is a fairly versatile anabolic steroid but it is important for every individual to understand the types of Winstrol dosages that would be desirable or necessary for various differing goals and results, why these Winstrol doses are described as such, and which Winstrol doses may be necessary between the two different genders. Winstrol’s versatility and flexibility in terms of how it can be used will often lead to Winstrol being stacked with other compounds, which would tend to augment the Winstrol doses generally utilized in such an environment. Therefore, the idea of this section is to concentrate on Winstrol doses that are specific to Winstrol only. The manner in which Winstrol can be utilized with other stacked anabolic steroids and the doses therein are a topic for discussion where the actual Winstrol cycles are concerned.
First and foremost, Winstrol is not what is considered an exceptional ‘mass builder’ or bulking anabolic steroid. It can be used as such, and Winstrol doses can generally be tailored to suit such goals, but it is generally not utilized as much for bulking purposes as it is for cutting or lean mass gaining cycles. Individuals will find that the gains resulting from Winstrol use are gains that one would not expect from the much stronger and heavier bulking anabolic steroids, such as Dianabol, Anadrol, Trenbolone, and so on and so forth. Winstrol itself does possess a very strong anabolic rating as discussed in the previous introduction to Winstrol section (at least three times the strength of Testosterone), but it is not generally utilized for the heavy bulking and strength gaining cycles. Winstrol can be utilized for such a purpose, but would require higher Winstrol doses, or require the use of other anabolic steroid stacked with it (specifically the types that favor bulking and large strength gains). Where Winstrol dosages are concerned, it is very important for the reader to remember that the lowest possible dose of any anabolic steroid that provides the desired physique/performance changes should always be preferred, as it is a far safer practice and more beneficial in the long run. Such a manner of using any anabolic steroid (in this case, Winstrol) will always result in the most effective possible low enough dose to allow the desired gains, which at the same time also exhibits the lowest incidence of side effects.
Medical Winstrol Dosages
Original medically prescribed Winstrol dosages for the oral preparation advised a dose of 6mg per day, advised to be split up throughout the day evenly into a 2mg tablet administration three times per day. Prescription guidelines for the injectable preparation of Winstrol called for a single 50mg Winstrol injection administered once every 2 – 3 weeks. Use of the oral Winstrol preparation is advised to be restricted to no longer than a 6 – 8 week period.
Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Winstrol Dosage
Beginners will find solid starter Winstrol doses in the range of 50mg every other day (injectable Winstrol) which equates to a total of 200mg weekly. A beginner looking to elicit a more dramatic physique and performance benefit would usually stack Winstrol with another anabolic steroid. In any case, Winstrol should always be stacked with Testosterone in some form, no matter the tier of user (beginner, intermediate, or advanced). If addition anabolic steroids are not stacked with Winstrol, a beginner would find that 100mg injected every other day for a total of 400mg weekly is favorable. It is assumed that Testosterone is still utilized with Winstrol in this particular case, even when relegated to a Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) role, which is most usually 100mg weekly simply to emulate the levels of natural endogenously produced Testosterone for the maintenance of proper functions governed by Testosterone itself. If Testosterone is indeed utilized at TRT doses, an individual should expect far less water retention while using Winstrol and a more pronounced ‘hardening’ effect on the physique. Intermediate Winstrol users will find themselves satisfied remaining at the 100mg every other day range for Winstrol doses. Advanced users also would not commonly venture above this Winstrol dose range, as the injectable preparation of Winstrol is frequently more painful than other anabolic steroids, as Winstrol is water based. Even in the aspect of total gains and progress, advanced users tend to stack other stronger anabolic steroids with Winstrol as opposed to continually increasing the Winstrol doses themselves. It is important to remember that all anabolic steroids contain limitations in their abilities and features – some more than others and some less than others. Winstrol is very inflexible and restrictive in the arena of bulking cycles.
Winstrol doses will never usually rise above the 400mg weekly range, even in advanced users due to its limitations in bulking and strength gaining. This 400mg weekly range applies to the oral preparation of Winstrol as well, which would equate to approximately 60mg daily. Lower Winstrol doses of the oral preparation still work very well, in the range of 25 – 50mg daily for all tiers of users. Most users who hold more of a preference to Winstrol use than other anabolic steroids will often be found using it for cutting and fat loss cycles. In such cases, doses generally remain on the lower end (50mg every other day for a total of 200mg weekly). This general rule applies to any and all anabolic steroids. The reason for this is because the purpose in utilizing anabolic steroids during a fat loss cycle is not the commonly misunderstood myth that anabolic steroids burn fat, but simply for the purpose of lean mass retention while consuming a caloric deficit. This is in contrast with fat loss periods where some small amount of muscle loss would be expected without the use of anabolic steroids in such a situation. For the purpose of lean mass retention during a caloric deficit, large doses are unnecessary and often times the lower end of dose ranges are adequate enough for this purpose. One other reason for the use of anabolic steroids during fat loss periods of dieting is to allow the anabolic steroids to exhibit more of their nutrient partitioning effects on the body, whereby more of the nutrients consumed by the user will be shuttled towards muscle repair and growth, and far less towards fat storage. Once again, lower doses are all that is required to elicit such an effect during periods of dieting and caloric deficits. This is the truth behind the common incorrect myth that “anabolic steroids burn fat”. They do not directly burn fat, but instead fat loss is a result if the indirect effects that stem from the strong nutrient partitioning characteristics exhibited by the anabolic steroid in question. Therefore, the fat loss effects resultant of a caloric deficit are pronounced even greater when an individual can influence the body’s ability, through the use of anabolic steroids, to promote a near total state of fat loss and lean mass (muscle) retention during their cycle.
Winstrol Female Dosage
In terms of female Winstrol dosages, there exists only a small amount of data available to compile female Winstrol dosing guidelines from. However, the good news is that Winstrol is one of the more favorable anabolic steroids among female athletes and bodybuilders, and is one of the more recommended anabolic steroid for female use (although there do exist better choices). This is because Winstrol is viewed upon as having a very ‘mild’ androgenic strength rating, which is true of this compound. For the purpose of physique and performance enhancement, oral doses of Winstrol should be in the range of 5 – 10mg daily, which is fairly frequent among females and is recommended for no longer than a 4 – 6 week period due to the increased risk of virilization symptoms as cycle time progresses. Injectable preparations are not recommended for female use due to lack of control over blood plasma levels and administration timings and schedules, which can lead to more severe virilization. However, for those who wish to engage in the use of the injectable preparation, female Winstrol doses of 15mg every other day (for a total of 60mg weekly) is recommended. Note that injectable Winstrol is not a common practice among female athletes.
Proper Administration and Timing of Winstrol Dosages
Oral Winstrol possesses a half-life of 9 hours, while injectable Winstrol possesses a half-life of 24 hours. Oral Winstrol tablets can be consumed once per day with no problems, but users will commonly split their oral Winstrol doses evenly into twice per day. Injectable Winstrol should ideally be administered every single day due to the 24 hour half-life, but many users have made do with every other day injections. Every day injections of Winstrol is recommended, however, due to the more stable blood plasma levels of the compound throughout use.
Expectations and Results From Winstrol Dosages
Winstrol does not convert into Estrogen and has no Estrogenic activity on its own right, and so the gains expected from Winstrol should be that of lean, hard, quality lean mass muscle gains with no water retention at all (provided other aromatizable anabolic steroids are kept under control with an aromatase inhibitor). Totally bodyweight and strength gains are not known to be as dramatic as the stronger more aromatizable anabolic steroids such as Dianabol, but gains resulting from Winstrol should always leave a measure of satisfaction in the individual at the end of a cycle, provided nutrition and training are both properly set.
