Winstrol is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) based anabolic steroid with the chemical name Stanozolol. First developed and produced by Winthrop Labritories in 1959 and then Sterling in the United States after they purchased the patent in 1961 leading to Winstrol entering the US market. Winstrol quickly became one of the most popular anabolic steroids and still to this day is held in extremely high regard by bodybuilders, recreational steroid users and athletes. In fact, after Testosterone preparations, Dianabol and Deca-Durabolin and Anavar, Winstrol is probably the most popular anabolic steroid still used widely today. Its use is still common because Winstrol results are often reported amongst its users. Winstrol results are seen in both male and female users and at varying dosages.
Winstrol Results for Bulking
Winstrol is not a mass-gaining agent like other anabolic steroids, namely Testosterone, Sustanon 250 and Deca Durabolin. Winstrol results are of high quality lean muscle mass (LBM) due to their being no water retention or bloating experienced from Winstrol use. Being a DHT derived anabolic steroid, reductions in SHBG are also evident in Winstrol users, which means there is more free floating Testosterone available to increase muscle and strength. Strength gains are one of the first Winstorl results experienced actually and then because the anabolic steroid user can push more weight will aid in the increase and formation of muscle tissue. The strength gains from Winstrol will be fast and more so than other anabolic steroids, which make Winstrol a favourite with athletes. Athletic sports where speed and strength are primary factors mean Winstrol use will benefit the user. This was verified by Ben Johnson choosing Winstrol for use in the 1988 100m Olmypic final in Seoul where Ben Johnson set a new world record, but was subsequently banned after testing positive for Stanozolol. Overall, Winstrol results are not of big large inflated muscles and Stanozolol is not used mainly for mass, but speed and power. Winstorl dosages range from 40-80mg every day depending on whether the oral or injectable version is ingested or injected. Oral Winstrol is not as bio-available as injectable Winstrol so a slightly higher dose is suggested.
Winstrol Results for Cutting
We have established that Winstrol results are not of massive increases in muscle mass or increases in lean muscle in a short time frame but quality steady gains and best used as part of strength or power sports. So what is it good for besides strength? Well, its also good as part of a cutting cycle due to its increase in cutting excess body fat or aiding the dieting bodybuilder or user to maintain their muscle mass when in a calorie deficit. Winstrol results are so good actually, that most of the time Winstrol is used is as part of a cutting cycle or during pre-contest phases. Stanozolol is used at a higher dose with other non-aromatising anabolic steroids in the final weeks of pre-competition phases as it will dry the physique and cause a hardening effect. Winstrol results come fairly quickly as it has a short half-life of around 10-24 hours depending on if the oral format is taken or injectable preparation. Winstrol dosages for cutting cycle or phases are slightly lower than bulking stacks due to the goal being to accelerate fat loss through nutrition, cardio and training and not through the use of anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids, such as, Winstrol are used to preserve the amount of muscle the user has when calories are below maintenance. This is a time when the body can use amino’s (muscle) as fuel and not excess body fat, defeating the object of pre-contest cutting. As well as preserving muscle, Winstrol will increase the rate at which the steroid user loses abdominal, visceral and systemic adipose tissue by elevating the metabolism of the user. Winstrol dosages for cutting are between 40-60mg every day. Again, the oral variation of Winstrol should be dosed slightly higher due to a loss in bioavailability. These steps must be taken so the individual still sees the cutting Winstrol results that are common and its primary and best function.
Winstrol Results for Women
Winstrol results for women can be very good and it generally takes a small dose per day to experience the excellent Winstrol results males report. Women are far more sensitive to anabolic steroids than men are, so a fraction of the dose male’s use is suggested. Winstrol dosages of 10-15mg every day can lead to dramatic gains in muscle mass and reductions in body fat. Because women are much more sensitive to anabolic steroids than men its wise to stay away from overly androgenic anabolic steroids, so Winstrol is a good choice, as well as, Primobolan and Anavar. These anabolic steroids are safer for women than other more androgenic and anabolic steroids. If the Winstrol results are negative and side effects experience, cessation of the Stanozolol is advised immediately. Virilisation symptoms are often irreversible and permanent of extremely hard to correct once they have manifested themselves, but this is rare in low safe and sensible dosages. Virilisation symptoms can be; growth of body hair, deepening of vocal chords, enlargement of sexual organs and masculinization. Other Winstrol side effects can be acne, aggression and changes to the menstrual cycle of a women.
Much like any anabolic steroid, care must be taken and proper health checks prior and after steroid use. Seek the guidance of a physical if possible and undertake the necessary blood tests.
