What is Winstrol?
Working out is a great way to stay in shape. Sadly, working out alone isn’t enough to deliver the sort of results that most bodybuilders look for. If you want to gain several pounds of muscle mass in say five weeks or so then working out alone is never going to cut it. It is at this point that supplements and anabolic steroids come in play. These are unique compounds formulated to expedite muscle growth and development. With these products, you’ll be able to see massive results within a short period. Seeing yourself gain pounds of muscles within days not only brings you closer to your goals but also motivates you to work even harder.
One of such compounds is Winstrol. Winstrol is an anabolic steroid also known as Stanozolol that is known to deliver excellent result in a very safe manner, unlike other anabolic steroids. Even the FDA considers it as one of the few safe steroids whose usage hasn’t been linked to any serious medical complications. It’s also for this reason that getting this steroid is a lot easier compared to others since you can easily find Winstrol in different online outlets.
Winstrol is a very popular steroid, and this isn’t just because it is safe for consumption, but it is also partly because the steroid is well formulated to last long in your GI tract for your body to fully utilize it. Winstrol will survive through the enzymes and other chemicals in your stomach and also in the liver allowing for optimal absorption, and that’s why the compound also delivers excellent results in as little as four weeks! And yes, this particular steroid is used through oral consumption! There is no need to withstand painful injections anymore.
Winstrol was first produced in 1959 by Winthrop Laboratories. By 1962 the steroid had found its way into different continents where it was used for medicinal purposes. It was used for treating angioedema, anemia, osteoporosis and was also used on children with stunted growth to stimulate faster growth. Soon the steroid found its way into the sports industry becoming one of the widely used performance enhancers. In the 1970s, the FDA started banning the use of steroids and Winstrol was one of the affected ones. Its purpose was limited to the treatment of stunted growth and osteoporosis. By 1980, its production in the USA had all but ceased leaving its users outsourcing the steroid from other countries.
Some years down the line Ovation Pharmaceutical bought the rights of Winstrol and started creating it again, but this time, the standards regulating its production were stricter. Ovation Pharmaceuticals collapsed, but the production of Winstrol is still on to date.
You should also know that due to the effectiveness of this drug various professional sports bodies have banned its use. For instance, athletes taking part in IAAF competitions are not allowed to use this steroid.
Benefits of Using Winstrol
- Boosts overall performance
Winstrol was so effective in treating Anemia, and this was because the steroid increased the number of red blood cells in the body. Red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen and nutrients to different cells keeping them nourished for optimal performance. By increasing the number of red blood cells in your body, Winstrol ensured that all the cells in your body received sufficient oxygen and nutrients at all times. As a result, frequent fatigue has never been an issue for Winstrol users. This is to mean that individuals under this steroid were able to perform for more extended hours than their counterparts. That’s why the steroid has been so effective in helping bodybuilders spend more time in the gym lifting heavier weights than the people not using the steroid.
- Fat Burning
Winstrol is widely used in cutting stacks due to its effectiveness in promoting fat burning. The steroid enhances metabolism which helps in breaking down calories to provide energy that fuels you through your workouts. It also burns excess fats stored in the body leaving space for you to showcase your muscles.
- Preserves Muscles
Winstrol is so popular in cutting because it achieves the results without putting your muscles at risk. In most cases, for a bodybuilder to reduce body fat, they have to get on a strict diet plan which can reduce the number of nutrients your muscles are getting. If you are not careful, this can end up starving your muscles and hence you’ll lose both the fat and the muscles. With Winstrol, fat burning will take place while all your muscles are kept safe and nourished. Therefore, at the end of a Winstrol cycle, you’ll be left with a ripped and symmetrical physique, and this is every bodybuilder’s dream.
- Increases Strength Levels
Winstrol delivers a significant boost in energy. However, when it comes to energy supply Winstrol isn’t as explosive as other steroids in the market. It is, therefore, more useful to new powerlifters who want a subtle but notable difference in energy supply.
Unlike other steroids, Winstrol isn’t very dangerous, but it still comes with a few possible side effects that you need to be aware of. These include baldness, acne, natural testosterone suppression, increase in cholesterol levels, insomnia, depression, and joint pain. A few users have also reported cases of liver toxicity. From our study, most of these effects were due to excessive use of the steroids or stacking it with other drugs. You should speak with a medical practitioner before using the steroid to avoid these adverse effects.
Winstrol can be used orally or through injections. Oral usage is the most popular, but it also poses the risk of liver toxicity. If you decide to take the steroid orally, you will need to use 40-80mg doses two times a day. The exact dose will depend on how you are reacting to the steroid and the results you are looking for. For injections, you have to use between 50-100mg just once every day.
A single winstrol cycle should last for 6-8 weeks after which you are advised to take a break. Always start the cycle with low doses to get your body acclimated to the new compound. You should also reduce the dosage gradually in the last two weeks of your cycle.
