Winstrol – Stanozolol Cycles
Winstrol, or Winny as many call it, is a popular oral steroid that has been used for years by seasoned bodybuilders and athletes. Those who aren’t ready for injectable steroids or who will never get over the fear of needles, choose this steroid simply because it’s an oral and is considered quite powerful. For quite some time, Winstrol has been a staple to those who step on stage and compete. You might be wondering whether the oral form works as good as the injectable form. The answer to your question is yes. One difference that is worth mentioning is that oral Winstrol (like any oral steroid) is toxic to the liver. Fitness enthusiasts and those who strive for a hard, defined body, look past this side effect and choose to cycle with Winstrol. Winstrol cycles that only incorporate this steroid can produce results but it is more common to stack it with other compounds. Ask your friends that use steroids how often they’ve cycled with only Winstrol. Most will tell you they also incorporate Testosterone as the base compound.
Winstrol can be taken on its own in a cycle or can be stacked with other steroids. Most users choose Winstrol when planning a cutting cycle to drop body fat and to achieve a dry, hard, vascular look. Here are some typical Winstrol only cutting cycles:
As a beginner cycle, the length can range anywhere from eight to twelve weeks depending on personal preference. The table below represents an eight week cycle; however, if you choose to run this for twelve weeks in total, the daily dose would remain at 50mg per day.
Those who are not beginners but have not yet mastered the world of steroids tend to fall in the middle at the intermediate level. Cycles at this level can range from six to eight weeks. We have created a six week cycle. Keep in mind if you choose to run this cycle for eight weeks, your daily dose will remain at 75mg per day.
Advanced steroid users may or may not choose to run a Winstrol only cycle (depending on the individual goal). This may be a final cycle or cutting phase for those wishing to step on stage and compete. The length of this advanced cycle ranges from four to six weeks. We created a table for a four week cycle but again if you choose to run this cycle for six weeks, the daily dose of 100mg per day will remain for the entire cycle.
Advanced bodybuilders and athletes almost never run solo cycles of Winstrol. If you are looking to build muscle tissue, you can stack Winstrol with Testosterone (Enanthate or Cypionate). When the goal is to get completely shredded, the options are endless and include Anavar, Tren, Clenbuterol, Primobolan, Masteron and Turinabol. Don’t forget about diet and training!
The active substance stanozolol of Winstrol is bound by the androgen receptors located in the bone and muscle tissue of the body. These receptors are significant for the muscle building process and of course for bodybuilding training.
This compound is interesting because it helps to stimulate protein synthesis and promote fat burning in the body. Winstrol is very beneficial because while it increases the body’s fat burning capabilities, it does not allow the loss of muscle mass maintaining the muscle volume you have gained with your workouts.
Stanozolol is a compound with remarkable anabolic activity providing high anabolic effects. So if you are looking for a powerful steroid that can help you achieve the body you have been working hard for, then Winstrol is the perfect steroid to choose.
Other benefits of Winstrol include an increase in strength as well as a reduction in the amount of time it takes for your body to recover from workouts.
Post Cycle Therapy
Post Cycle Therapy or PCT is an essential process that people go through once they’ve finished a cycle of steroids. The objective is to get their body back to its normal state so it can start naturally producing hormones again. Once a run of steroids is over, a user will start their post-cycle therapy, which typically lasts four weeks (sometimes longer).
Most steroid users choose either Clomid or Nolvadex for PCT once their cycle of steroids is complete. Some will actually cycle with both drugs.
Clomid helps to fire up your testes to start producing testosterone again but can cause some annoying problems. These include headaches, nausea and vomiting (to name a few). It is rare for any of these side effects to be serious and some may not experience any of these. Nolvadex is used in the bodybuilding world to help suppress estrogen. This drug also comes with the same side effects but will vary from person to person.
The best time to take Clomid is about two weeks after coming off a steroid cycle. This gives your body enough time to clear out the synthetic version of testosterone that you were taking.
The length of time it takes Clomid to work depends on which cycle of steroids you were taking. The stronger it was, the longer it will take for your hormone levels to return to normal.
You also need to consider the length of time of the steroid cycle. Obviously, with a longer cycle, you’ll need a longer recovery period of PCT.
What to Expect from PCT
While running PCT some users may experience mood swings and a decrease in the ambition to hit the gym as hard as when running your cycle of steroids. It is important not to get discouraged but to give your body the time it needs to rest, regroup and recharge for the next cutting or bulking cycle.
When it comes to a dry, hardened physique, Winstrol can do wonders. It is especially important to know that no steroid (even Winstrol) will work without your help. Individuals who choose to run steroid cycles need to maintain a low body fat percentage, consume the right types of foods (including healthy fats, carbs and protein) and train on a regular basis, incorporating both weights and cardio in their routine. Winstrol has many positive benefits associated with its use. One drawback that users encounter is joint pain associated with this steroid literally sucking all of the water from your body. To combat this, many will supplement with potassium vitamins, drink plenty of water and eat a banana (or two a day). Your body can become what you want it to by cycling with Winstrol. Just be aware of how much you take and for how long.
