Winstrol is one of the favorite steroids. Stanozolol is, for example, one of the chemicals that provided Ben Johnson with his amazing races. This substance provided him, this exceptional athlete with such a noticeable gain of muscles and such a beautiful outlined muscles, that he would be jealous of a different athlete of bodybuilding.
In the first big bodybuilding championship with doping testing, winner Sean Ray and massive Canadian professional Nimrod King were convicted of taking Winstrol World Championships in Athletics 1993 in Stuttgart revealed 2 cases of stanozolol intake. Obviously, Winstrol is a very effective steroid if used correctly. It is important to distinguish between 2 forms of its release, because injectable Winstrol Depot is significantly more effective than oral Winstrol. Therefore, it is preferred by most athletes.
Features of injection winstrol depot is that its active chemical substance – like all steroids, is usually dissolved not in oil, but in water. And although almost every bodybuilding athlete with experience in steroids knows this difference, in practice this knowledge is rarely used: The intervals between injections with Winstrol for a long-term action should be shorter than with other steroids. This means that Winstrol long-acting steroids are introduced more often than oil-soluble steroids (as well as, for example, Primobolan, Deca-Durabolin, Sustanon 250, Parabolan, etc.) The reason is the relatively short half-life of steroids dissolved in water, which quickly enter the blood, but not for long. Practice has shown that long-acting Winstrol 50 mg / ml should be administered at least twice a day and the best results are observed with a daily dose of 50 mg. The active chemical Stanozolol is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, therefore, long-acting Winstrol does not aromatize into estrogens and only in rare cases causes water to accumulate.
Winstrol is an anabolic steroid with progesterone activity, the active ingredient of which is Stanozolol, created, in turn, based on dihydrotestosterone in 1962 by Winthrop Laboratories.
Initially, this steroid was developed for use in veterinary medicine, in horses. Subsequently, the FDA association approved its use in humans. Today, this anabolic is widely in demand among a huge number of bodybuilders around the world.
The tool is available in injections and tablets (Winstrol Depot). The main difference of the injection form from other steroids is an aqueous, not an oil solution.
Due to its low androgenic activity, Winstrol is one of the safest steroid products for women.
- Winstrol is 3.2 times stronger than testosterone in its anabolic action. It provides a powerful increase in muscle mass.
- And androgenic activity is only a third of that of testosterone. And it automatically saves the bodybuilder from many unwanted effects.
- Stanazolol does not undergo an aromatization reaction in the blood and, unlike testosterone, does not turn into female sex hormones estrogen. And it also deprives him of many side effects.
- Injections and tablets have about the same moderate toxicity to the liver. The fact is that the active substance that is part of this steroid, passing through the liver, is not destroyed, therefore damaging the liver cells. However, this effect is not so strongly pronounced and, if properly administered, can be almost completely leveled out.
- After taking Winstrol is valid for 8 hours.
- After the last use, the steroid can be found in the blood for about a year.
Types of Winstrol
The above, admittedly, once again proves the effectiveness of such a steroid as Winstro, you just need to use it correctly and strictly observe the dosage.
And besides, do not forget that Winstrol was and is available in two forms: the first is a more effective injection Depot, preferred by most athletes, and the second is oral Winstrol, which is somewhat less effective than the injection Winstrol Depot, which has some additional features, what distinguishes it from other steroids of this type.
The thing is that in preparations like Deca Durabolin, Parabolan or Sustanon, the active substance itself is dissolved in water, and in the case of Winstrol Depot, the substance is dissolved in oil, which allows it to be faster, but its effect is less durable than in these water-based steroids. This is the reason that Winstrol Depot is introduced into the body at least once every 2 days, that is, much more often.
Sometimes dosages reach 50 mg of Winstrol Depot daily and then the results of use may be more noticeable. Water-based steroids are absorbed by the body longer, but they also last much longer.
As for the substance actually acting in this steroid, it is the widely known Stanozolol, which is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone. The advantage of the steroid Winstrol Depot can be attributed to the fact that it almost never transforms into estrogen and does not cause fluid retention in the body.
Thanks to these useful properties, Winstrol Depot is ideal for athletes who are actively involved in bodybuilding competitions, and if you correctly combine Winstrol Depot with a regular protein diet, the muscles will be more prominent and elastic. Admission is usually combined with the use of other steroids, since the content of the androgen component in it is quite small, and this can lead to damage to muscle tissue.
What effects can be expected from Winstrol?
Many bodybuilders do not like this anabolic much. It gives a truly excellent increase in muscle strength, mass and other indicators:
- Increased muscle volume. Moreover, as described above, this tool does not transform, unlike the primordial male sex hormone, into estrogens, and therefore does not pump them with water. A lasting effect is achieved, there will be no “recoil”, and the muscle mass will not “go away” anywhere.
- Strengthening of a muscular relief. You get a more beautiful, toned body.
- Increase stamina and muscle strength. If you are doing weightlifting or powerlifting, then you know how highly these qualities are valued in these sports.
- This tool has an excellent fat burning effect.
- Increased appetite, you can take more protein foods in order to further increase the performance.
- Removal of excess fluid from the body.
- Researchers have found that this tool has the ability to block proteins that bind and deactivate steroid hormones. That is, being used in the complex, it enhances the effect of other components.
- In addition, according to some sources, Winstrol has anti-estrogenic activity – it suppresses the effects of female sex hormones in the bodybuilder’s body.
Does Winstrol have side effects?
This steroid has a number of side effects that must be considered during the reception:
- Pain in the joints and ligaments. This undesirable effect is basic, but, fortunately, it is easy to eliminate. To successfully combat an undesirable phenomenon, it is enough to combine Winstrol with Testosterone or Deca.
- Temporary increase in blood pressure. Bodybuilder can often face such a problem. It is solved by taking antihypertensive drugs. And after the end of Winstrol administration, the increased pressure passes by itself.
- Increased blood cholesterol. It is also a temporary phenomenon and is also eliminated with drugs.
- Toxicity to the liver. It can be minimized by the proper use of an anabolic steroid.
- Injections are quite painful, and they have to be done relatively often. However, there is the oral form of the steroid.
