Stanozolol is a highly-modified synthetic version of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that was originally sold under the trade name Winstrol. As you can see, there is an additional ring system attached to the traditional A-ring of the steroid structure. The binding data for Stanozolol shows it to have very poor binding for the androgen receptor. However, the half-life of nine hours for this steroid is quite long— making up for the lower affinity. Stanozolol is incapable of being converted to estrogenic metabolites through aromatization, and is already 5-alpha reduced, so it cannot be reduced further— but does seem to have some anti-aromatase activity.
Stanozolol has minimal binding to sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), so it circulates for the most part in the ‘free’ state. It has been shown that although stanozolol does not interact directly with the glucocorticoid receptor, it does interact with two glucocorticoid-binding proteins known as STBP and LAGS. This interaction ‘bumps off’ bound cortisol into free circulation. At the same time, stanozolol has been shown to interfere with cortisol release from the adrenal gland. This results in reduced cortisol levels, with chronic usage. In fact, many people notice severe joint pain when using stanozolol, especially when used alone. This can result in a rebound effect in cortisol production when going off Stanozolol.
Even though Stanozolol has a very large anabolic-to-androgenic ratio, it is quite androgenic. The anti-glucocorticoid effect of this drug likely augments its anabolic/androgenic ratio beyond that of its androgen receptor-binding effects alone. Stanozolol decreases thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) levels but not as much as some of the other common anabolic steroids.
In addition to tablets for oral administration, stanozolol is available as water-based suspension for injection. Because it is not esterified, this steroid needs to be injected every day. Also, water-based injections are a lot more prone to bacterial contamination, so more care is needed to keep a multi-use bottle sterile. The relatively large crystal size of some preparations limits the size of needle that can be used, because the crystals will jam smaller needles. There are some formulations available that have smaller crystal size; however, these seem to have a shorter half-life— most likely due to the crystals dispersing faster within the muscle.
Because Stanozolol is C-17 alpha-alkylated, it has the potential for liver toxicity— but this is somewhat reduced with the injectable form because a lower overall dose is often used. Stanozolol has a favorable anabolic-to-androgenic ratio, but most do not consider it to be very effective. This is largely due to the fact that Stanozolol does not result in large water weight gains.
Winstrol is a anabolic steroid compound that is available as both an oral and injectable. It is most often used as cutting agent because it doesn’t produce huge weight gains and it also reverses some of the bloated look of testosterone and replaces it with a dry look.
Side effects of Winstrol include liver toxicity, increased cholesterol, cardiac hypertrophy (enlarged heart) and some users have even reported problems with the joints. Also, the injectable form is quite uncomfortable and can cause pain at the injection site.
Winstrol is a popular brand name for the anabolic steroid Stanozolol. This compound is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, although its activity is much milder than this androgen in nature. It is technically classified as an anabolic steroid, shown to exhibit a slightly greater tendency for muscle growth than androgenic activity in early studies. While dihydrotestosterone really only provides androgenic side effects when administered, Stanozolol instead provides quality muscle growth. The anabolic properties of this substance are still mild in comparison to many stronger compounds, but it is still a ggod, reliable builder of muscle. Its anabolic properties could even be comparable to Dianabol, but Winstrol does not have the same tendency for water retention. Stanozolol also contains the same c17 methylation we see with Dianabol, an alteration used so that oral administration is possible. To spite this design however, there are many injectable versions of this steroid produced.
Since Stanozolol is not capable of converting into estrogen, an anti-estrogen is not necessary when using this anabolic steroid, gynecomastia is not a concern even among the most sensitive individuals. Since estrogen is also the cause of water retention, instead of bulk look, Winstrol produces a lean, quality look with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention. This makes it a great steroid to use during cutting cycles, when water and fat retention are a major concern. It is also very popular among athletes in combination strength/speed sports such as Track and Field.
The usual dosage of Winstrol for men is 35-75mg per day for the tablets and 25-50mg per day with the injectable version. It is often combined with other anabolic steroids depending on the desired result. For bulking purposes, a stronger androgen like testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol is usually added. Here Winstrol will balance out the cycle a bit, giving us good anabolic effect with lower overall estrogenic activity than if taking such steroids alone. The result should be a considerable gain in new muscle mass, with a more comfortable level of water and fat retention. For cutting phases Winstrol can be combined with a non-aromatizing androgen such as trenbolone or Halotestin. Such combinations should help bring about the strongly defined, hard look of muscularity so sought after among bodybuilders. Older, more sensitive individuals can add compounds like Primobolan, Deca-Durabolin or Equipoise when wishing to stack this steroid. Here they should see good results and fewer side effects than with standard androgen therapies.
Women usually take around 5-10mg daily. Although female athletes usually find stanozolol very tolerable, the injectable version is usually off limits.
With the structural (c17-AA) alteration, the tablets will also place a higher level of stress on the liver than the injectable (which avoids the “first pass”). During longer or higher dosed cycles, liver values should therefore be watched closely through regular blood work. Although less common, there is still a possibility of liver damage occuring with the injectable form. While it does not enter the body through the liver, it is still broken down by it, providing a lower (but more continuous) level of stress. Such stress would of course be increased with the addition of other c17-AA oral compounds to a cycle of Winstrol. When using such combinations, cautious users would make every effort to limit the length of the cycle (preferably 6 to 8 weeks) and take some form of liver protectants. It should also be noted that both versions of Winstrol have been linked to strong adverse changes in HDL/LDL cholesterol levels. This side effect is common with anabolic steroid therapy, and obviously can become a health concern as the dose/duration of intake increase above normal. The oral version should have a greater impact on cholesterol values than the injectable due to the method of administration, and may therefore be the worse choice of the two for those concerned and this side effect.
The oral use of Stanozolol can also have a profound impact on levels of SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin). This is a characteristic of all anabolic/androgenic steroids, however its potency and form of administration make Winstrol particularly noteworthy in this regard. Since plasma binding proteins such as SHBG act to temporarily constrain steroid hormones from exerting activity, this effect would provide a greater percentage of free (unbound) steroid hormone in the body. This may amount to an effective mechanism in which stanozolol could increase the potency of a concurrently used steroid. To further this purpose one could also addition Proviron, which has an extremely high affinity for SHBG. This affinity may cause Proviron to displace other weaker substrates for SHBG (such as testosterone), another mechanism in which the free hormone level may be increased. Adding Winstrol and Proviron to your next testosterone cycle may therefore prove very useful„ markedly enhancing the free state of this potent muscle building androgen.
Anastrozole - Men show little change in body composition if you block their estradiol production with the enzyme aromatase. In women things are different, oncologists at the University of Pittsburgh in the US discovered. Aromatase inhibitors boost muscle mass in the fair sex.
Let’s start with a recap: there are two sorts of anti-oestrogens. First of all there are SERMs, like Tamoxifen and Clomiphene. These block the estradiol receptors and thus prevent estradiol from doing its work. They often actually take over some of the functions of estradiol. In men SERMS raise testosterone levels; in women they don’t.
And then there are the aromatase inhibitors like Anastrozole. These interfere with the functioning of the enzyme aromatase as a result of which less androstenedione and testosterone are converted into estradiol.
Chemical athletes use anti-oestrogens to counteract the side effects of some anabolic steroids, but also to restore the body’s own testosterone production after taking a course of steroids. Doctors subscribe the same anti-oestrogens for breast cancer survivors, as they reduce the chance of the cancer returning.
Tamoxifen - Doctors have collected a lot of information on the side effects of SERMS, in particular those of tamoxifen. Long-term use of Tamoxifen leads to negative changes in body composition. Women often lose muscle mass and build up fat.
Not much is yet known about the side effects of aromatase inhibitors.
Letrozole - For example, what is the effect of aromatase inhibitors on women’s body composition? This is the question that the researchers set out to answer in the small study they did of 82 women, who they monitored over a period of two years.
During the 24 months that the study lasted the fat mass of the women who took SERMs increased by a kilogram, while there was no increase in fat mass in those who took an aromatase inhibitor.
SERMs had no effect on lean body mass, while the aromatase inhibitors led to more than a kilogram increase in lean body mass.
The aromatase inhibitors increased the amount of testosterone in the blood, and the researchers think that this was the reason for the increase in the women’s lean body mass.
Testosterone is the undisputed king of steroids mainly because it is safe, elicits rapid mass and strength gains while maintaining libido, a sense of well being and energy. It’s not uncommon for a first time user to gain 15-20lbs of LBM in a standard Testosterone cycle. Pure Testosterone comes in a water based aqueous form (Suspension) and also in a solvent/oil based form (Test Base).
Suspensions have tiny particles that are visible with the naked eye. If left on the shelf for a few days many times the particles will sink to the bottom leaving the clear solvents and water on the top. Depending on the manufacturer, particle sizes vary meaning some Suspension preparations can clog a 22 gauge needle. Ultra micronized Suspension can pass through a 25 gauge needle making injections more comfortable. Shake the suspension preparation vigorously before injecting.
Testosterone suspension is the most potent form of testosterone because it does not possess an ester. Esters are calculated into the steroid weight therefore esterfied steroids are not a true mg for mg of free hormone. 100mg of suspension is 100mg of free hormone! Enanthate in a solution is only 72mg of free hormone per 100mg. You can see that Suspension is the true king steroid. However because there is no ester many users will inject suspension everyday or even multiple times per day. This is usually reason enough for most people to reject using suspension but it gets worse. Usually suspension is quite painful as well. Combine every day injections with significant pain and most users simply pass on trying suspension at all. Some new science now demonstrates that everyday and even every other day injections are not necessary with Testosterone Suspension.
So how often should you administer Suspension?
Based on this science, injecting Suspension every other day or even every three days will maintain high blood androgen levels. The king of anabolic steroids has had a time release delay built into it all along and we have the data to prove it. 100mg every other day would be a good starting dose for newer male users. More advanced male users could easily double that dose for very rapid and pronounced LBM gains. Suspension is moderately estrogenic and that effect will be dose dependant. The more you administer the more likely aromatase activity will occur. I would use Nolvadex to lower estrogenic side effects or an aromatase inhibitor.
Sample 8 week Suspension cycle
Monday - 150mg Suspension/20mg Nolvadex
Tuesday - 20mg Nolvadex
Wednesday - 150mg Suspension/20mg Nolvadex
Thursda - 20mg Nolvadex
Friday - 150mg Suspension/20mg Nolvadex
Saturday - 20mg Nolvadex
Sunday - 20mg Nolvadex
Nolvadex is used to keep lipids positively influenced for those concerned with cardiovascular health. I have opted for an injection schedule of only three times per week to allow for comfort and because a more frequent schedule is not needed.
This cycle should produce rapid increases in strength and mass. I would use this cycle during a bulking phase. A more adventuresome user could stack a strong oral like Dianabol or Anadrol with the above cycle at 50mg daily producing an amazing and rapid increase in size and strength if nutrition, training and recovery are dialed in.
Testosterone Base - Oil/Solvent Based
Testosterone Base is 100% pure testosterone similar to aqueous Testosterone Suspension however Test Base is technically a solution not a suspension. Test Base contains no visible Testosterone crystals because they are in an oil and solvent solution NOT water. There are no crystals to slowly absorb into the injection site. Therefore when you inject Test Base there is a very rapid increase in blood Testosterone levels that falls off faster than standard aqueous Testosterone suspension. Test Base packs a big instant wallop when injected and is arguably the fastest Testosterone product available today. Another advantage of Test Base is you may use very small gauge needles to inject it. There are no crystals in Test Base to clog the needle so administering with an insulin syringe is an option. Test Base is ideal pre training or for power lifting or strength sports. I recommend Test Base to be administered two hours pre-training to provide increased aggression and power
As a beginner, with literally dozens of anabolic steroids available for use, deciding which are best suited to your goals can be a daunting task. As performance/appearance enhancers, anabolic steroids can vary enormously in their impact on muscle size, strength levels, cosmetic attributes (hardness, density, dryness, and vascularity), side effects, mental-emotional state, and endogenous hormone production. Without a thorough self-education on the subject, the anabolic steroids novice does not possess the requisite knowledge for designing his own cycles, leaving him solely at the mercy of other and where do these people usually go for help? You guessed it the internet. The problem with this is that while the Net is loaded with an abundance of valuable info, it is also chockfull of error, forcing the prospective user to sift through a mountain of garbage in search of the truth. This effort is both time consuming and inefficient, demanding years of study before one is capable of adequately discerning the truth from error.
Therefore, being able to turn to a vet in times of need is invaluable, especially during one’s formative years in the anabolic steroids subculture. Those who are fortunate enough to be in such a position should take advantage of it, as this person will be able to provide you with years (or perhaps even decades) of user experience. However, for those lacking this type of vital support, mini-descriptions, such as the ones shown below, can be used to help fill in the blanks as you continue your education on the subject.
You will notice that each section is broken down into different categories, with each steroid ranked according to how they compare against the other steroids in that same category. The following list is not exhaustive, as such a compilation would not only be time-prohibitive, but many of the anabolic steroids cannot be sourced, making the accompanying information irrelevant in terms of personal application. For this reason, I have selected 6 of the most common anabolic steroids in each category (6 injectables & 6 orals). Additionally, I have provided a brief write-up for each category, explaining its meaning for those of you who are not yet well-versed in anabolic steroids terminology.
The first category we will be evaluating is muscle growth. With the acquisition of muscle mass being the primary goal of many individuals, it helps to know how the various anabolic steroids compare against each other in this area. Of course, not everyone will experience the same results from each drug, as personal response will always play a role in the results we achieve. Therefore, this list should be considered nothing more than a rough guideline, which may or may not accurately apply to you.
Before going any farther, it is important to define the term muscle mass, so the reader knows exactly what I am referring to. I have chosen to define muscle mass as a combination of both muscle fiber and intramuscular/subcutaneous water. It is common knowledge that different anabolic steroids can vary tremendously in their ability to initiate muscle fiber growth, but perhaps less well known is their ability to alter both intramuscular and subcutaneous water levels. Since water retention is such a fundamental characteristic of anabolic steroids, we should take a minute to describe how the different types of water retention affect both our overall muscle size, as well as the quality of our musculature when using different types of anabolic steroids.
Intramuscular water retention is beneficial, as this water is stored directly inside the muscle itself, contributing to its overall size and appearance. This makes it virtually impossible to differentiate intramuscular water from genuine muscle fiber. In contrast, subcutaneous water is held immediately under the skin, where it blurs muscular definition and imparts a watery look to the physique. While it will contribute to increases in bodyweight, it does not increase muscle size. Some anabolic steroids increase I.M. water significantly, while others barely alter I.M. water levels at all. In the same way, some steroids cause quite a bit of sub-q water retention, while others cause none whatsoever. Obviously, with each steroid causing varying degrees of water retention in the I.M. and sub-q regions, it can have a significant impact on both muscle size and appearance.
One should also keep in mind that those anabolic steroids which cause the most I.M water retention, while making us grow the largest on-cycle, will also result in the most rapid lost of gains post-cycle, as the water which was stored in the muscle will return to normal levels once the user discontinues the drugs. This is why we see some guys, just a couple of weeks after their cycle has ended, deflate right before our eyes. This rapid reduction in size is predominantly attributable to a normalization of I.M water levels, with muscle fiber loss accounting for only a small portion of the lost size. Of course, the longer the individual stays off, the more likely he is to lose actual muscle fiber, but this is generally not a concern during the first few weeks.
Through the collective experience of decades of anabolic steroids users, we have learned quite a bit about how well the various anabolic steroids work to enhance muscle size. Therefore, those anabolic steroids which typically result in the greatest gains in muscle mass within the shortest period of time, top the list.

In the strength category, I chose the top 6 most effective orals & injectables of each group. However, my selections were limited primarily to the most readily available anabolic steroids, although some may be a bit more difficult to source than others. Besides, any time a “best of” list is compiled for strength gains, regardless of the selection criteria, the best we can do is generalize. Individual response to the various AAS varies tremendously when it comes to strength gains, with some people experiencing great strength gains from one drug, while another person barely benefits from taking that same drug. For this reason, there cannot be a definitive “best anabolic steroids for strength” ranking list. Still, the placements below provide a general idea as to how these anabolic steroids may affect your strength development. As with many things anabolic steroids, personal experience will be your teacher when attempting to determine which drugs work the best for you in this area.
Oral anabolic steroids
Injectable anabolic steroids
Like the strength category above, how an individual reacts to a particular anabolic steroids in terms of side effects, is determined by personal response. There are many occasions in which an individual will not have any problems using a specific drug, while the next person cannot use it at all due to intolerable side effects. A great example is Nandrolone. When it comes to sexual functioning, Nandrolone is a drug which some can use in large dosages without any issues, while others will experience impotence and a near complete loss of libido even when using tiny amounts of the drug. Like all anabolic steroids, you will not know how Nandrolone affects you until you try it for yourself.
Because of the personal response factor, we can only make vague generalizations regarding which anabolic steroids are more or less likely to cause particular side effects. More so, not everyone considers each side effect to be equally bothersome. For example, a fitness model may consider hair loss to be a completely unacceptable side effect, while a bodybuilder who has been bald for years will not even have that side effect in his top 100. Therefore, I have not ranked these steroids by the “type” of side effects they cause, but rather, by the number and severity of side effects caused.
Also, for this category I decided against using a “worst of the worst” ranking system and instead, implemented a “worst to best” ranking system. Again, I utilized only the most common anabolic steroids. For example, in the oral column, I listed methyl-1-testosterone as the #1 offender, as it is well known to cause horrendous side effects in many users, in numerous different ways. By the time you reach the middle of the list you will find steroids which are considered to be “middle of the road” in terms of side effects…and at the bottom you will find anabolic steroids which have been shown time and time against to present the fewest problems among the greatest number of people.

Injectable anabolic steroids
It is no secret that many anabolic steroids are capable of altering out emotions, potentially leading to an outward change of behavior. Some anabolic steroids supply anti-depressant-like effects, improving the user’s mood and overall sense of well-being. Others can lead to an increase in aggression and a more dominant alpha-male mind-set. In those who are prone, one may even develop a short-fuse, experiencing misplaced outbursts of anger or physical violence. In general, it is usually recommended that these type of anabolic steroids be avoided by the less emotionally mature/unstable, which usually includes young adults (especially teens) and those men who have pre-existing problems in the areas of self control and aggression. Men with these pre-existing issues who also engage in the use of these drugs are likely to exacerbate these problems, potentially leading to physical violence and/or anti-social conduct. To sum up, if you’re not man enough to control yourself, you have no business using this type of steroid…and in my opinion, no anabolic steroids steroids at all. Only children allow themselves to be controlled by bodybuilding drugs, while men remain in control at all times.
As with the other categories above, personal experience is your teacher, showing you which anabolic steroids are the most compatible with your personality. While out outward reactions are determined by our maturity level, the way in which a anabolic steroids impacts our inner emotions is decided by personal response. For example, drugs such as Trenbolone and halotestin are well known to cause emotional alterations in many users, although some are able to use these drugs in high dosages with no issues at all. The wise bodybuilders knows when he doesn’t get along well with certain drugs and moves onto another which is more suited to his own unique make-up.
It is generally recommended, more than with any other type of anabolic steroids, that a beginner starts off at lower dosages and gradually works his way up, as needed. With these drugs, more is frequently not better. It doesn’t take much to experience the emotional changes which accompanying these drugs and in some users, these changes can be profound. Therefore, the individual who is considering using these drugs requires a certain degree of insight into how he is perceived by others, hopefully ensuring social acceptance.

Muscle Hardness & Density
There are many anabolic steroids which lead to an improvement in muscle hardness and density. Normally, these anabolic steroids are used when one desires to enhance the quality of their physique. There is no sub-q water retention associated with these compounds, so the user will maintain a dry, lean appearance. Often, these drugs are used by bodybuilders for contest preparation, since they are the most effective at displaying all the intricate details of one’s muscularity. It should be said that regardless of which anabolic steroids are administered, if one’s bodyfat is too high, these changes will not be apparent. One must obtain a sufficiently low bodyfat level before these anabolic steroids are able to have these effects on the physique, and the lower one’s bodyfat is, the more pronounced these effects will be.

Middle-aged men seeking to restore their energy and sex drive are flocking to South Florida clinics promising renewed vigor through testosterone, the male sex hormone. Influenced by an abundance of television commercials, Internet ads and billboards asking if they have “Low-T,” many say they had been depressed about the aging process and were seeking a way to regain the stamina they miss from their youth. They say the hormone has revived their endurance and virility, although some doctors caution that extra testosterone can have side effects and could cause long-term problems that have not yet been thoroughly studied.
Such warnings have not deterred enthusiasts such as Skip Guarniere, a Delray Beach fitness trainer, who believes his weekly injection makes him lively and fit. A year ago, Guarniere said, he had lost his libido, was unable to sleep and felt listless. He had his testosterone checked at Core Institute, an anti-aging clinic in Delray Beach. His level was 190, below the 300 to 1,200 range doctors consider ideal. Guarniere said he began to sleep better and get his energy back after just a few weeks of injections, administered by his mother, a nurse.
Men taking testosterone under a doctor’s supervision say they are different from athletes and bodybuilders who use anabolic steroids, a synthetic form of testosterone whose non-medical use is illegal and banned by major sports bodies. Several fraudulent clinics have been shut down over the past few years, including a Deerfield Beach center that provided steroids to eight Broward sheriff’s deputies.
“I’m not trying to be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” said Guarniere, a divorced father of two. “I just want to be normal and healthy.”
Men’s production of testosterone — needed for bone strength, muscle mass and sperm production — begins a gradual ebb around age 40. This decline, often called “andropause,” can cause depression, night sweats and fatigue, symptoms similar to women’s menopause.
Concern about the symptoms of aging used to be the province of women, some of whom get plastic surgery, take hormone supplements and try Pilates to maintain their good looks. But now that baby boomers are beginning to age en masse, medical and business establishments are discovering a growth industry in men who also seek to slow their degeneration.
“They want to stay young forever,” said Dr. Angelos Manganiotis, a urologist and chief of surgery at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “Men are later to this issue than women are.”
Although he has a traditional urology practice, Manganiotis said a growing number of patients have been asking him about testosterone injections and gels. A few years ago, when research showed appropriate supplementing of testosterone had few risks when a man’s fertile years were over, he began to offer it to patients who had their prostates checked and showed extremely low levels in theirblood.
There still are several potential dangers, though, including stroke, testicular atrophy and prostate cancer, Manganiotis said.
Costs vary widely, but most clinics charge about $150 to $400 a month for treatment and monitoring. Dr. Ferdinand Cabrera of Genesis Health Institute, an anti-aging center in Wilton Manors, said he charges $350 for a consultation and $750 for a five-month supply, whether it’s an injection, cream or pellet under the skin.
He said his testosterone business has been increasing about 10 percent a year for the past five years.
Sidney Gordon, founder of Core Institute, said he gets about 25 new testosterone patients each week, up from 15 a week three months ago. Gordon, 34, began taking testosterone at 28, when he suffered from low libido, loss of appetite and stress.
“Once you get your hormones balanced, you can begin to tackle the issues in your life,” he said.
Do you have ‘Low-T’?
Men with these symptoms may have low testosterone:
Winstrol (winstrol depot, oral winstrol) is a brand name of very popular anabolic steroid called Stanozolol, which is a derivative of DHT (dihydrotestosterone). It has low androgenic ratio and thus low possibility of aromatization and estrogen-related side effects.
It’s primarily usage in bodybuilding is cutting (relief) cycles. However, Winstrol is widely used not only by bodybuilders but also by non-bodybuilding athletes such as runners, cyclists, football players, soccer or hockey players and fighters of all kinds (kick-boxers for instance); i.e. in the sports where you have to be swift but not too heavy, because it provides you with lean mass and improves your strength without gaining excessive muscles.
Stanozolol is, one of the chemicals, which allowed amazing results to famous runner and simply exceptional athlete Ben Johnson. This substance provided him with a noticeable gain in muscle mass and relief, which could be perfect even for professional bodybuilder.
So, Winstrol is a very effective anabolic steroid when used properly. It is important to distinguish between two forms of Winstrol-Stanozolol, first is long-acting injectable version called Winstrol Depot. Second is short-acting oral one (winstrol oral). Winstrol depot is more effective and thus preferred by most athletes.
The main usage of Winstrol (Winstrol Depot) in bodybuilding is preparation for a competition. When complemented by a proper calorie-rich and protein-rich diet, Winstrol Depot provides the muscles with firmness and elasticity. Unfortunately, due to its low androgenic component, it is unable to protect the athlete from damages to muscle tissue. The absence of androgenic effect is compensated by stacking with Parabolan. The combination of injectable Winstrol 50 mg per day and Parabolan 2-3 amps / week is “a combination of top championships”.
Winstrol is good not only for preparation for a competition, but also in the bulking phase. Due to low water retention rapid weight gains with Winstrol are unlikely to occur. It provides rather moderate amount of lean and dry mass, which preserves after the cycle is over.
Injections of Winstrol in certain muscle groups are gaining in popularity because athletes have noticed that this leads to an accelerated growth of the affected muscles.
Clomiphene citrate being nonsteroid represents antiestrogenic synthetic substance.
Shortly called Clomid, this substance is used in medicine. Clomiphene citrate is well known in treating anovulatory infertile women especially those with polycystic ovary syndrome diagnosis.
In sport such as bodybuilding it is well known too. Clomid is often compared with Nolvadex because of it’s the same acting on the human body and muscles tisue. Being both estrogen blockers, Clomid is considering slightly than Nolvadex.
Clomiphene citrate is characterized with both agonist/antagonist properties. Some athletes take clomifene during their steroid cycles, in order to maintain testosterone leveland not let it diminishing. Clomid noticeable minimize the activity of estrogen in the body by blocking their effects and possibility of occurrence of side effects such as for example water retention. It is also help to avoid gynecomastia.
Actually Clomiphene citrate is considered as being a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) drug. By taking this substance bodybuilders notice that the elevation in both follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone cause growth of natural testosterone production.
Bodybuilders are recommended to take a dose of 50-100 mg (1-2 tablets) per day for about 4-6 week. It will help to achieve aimed goals and production of hormone at normal level.
Athletes and bodybuilders must remember not to exceed with dose. For better result some sportsmen prefer to stack it with Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). But be careful with this too, HCG should not be used for longer than two or three weeks.
Side effects that may occur are: vision problems, hot flashes, nausea, dizziness, headaches and others.
In the world of anabolic steroids, there is a very thin line between steroid use and steroid abuse. Let us read about abuse of steroids to gain a clear and complete understanding of the same.
When steroids are used for legal purposes such as treatment of medical complications and recommended by a qualified medical practitioner, the use is termed as ’steroid use’. On the other hand, steroid abuse is indiscriminate and unlawful use of steroids without a qualified medical advice. While steroid use provides benefits such as health complication treatment, abuse of steroids leads to severe health complications.
Steroids are abused by bodybuilders, athletes, body guards, construction workers, law enforcement officers, celebrities, and fitness-conscious people for gaining a competitive advantage. There is nothing wrong or illegal in using steroids but only if they are used under a medical advice.
Let us read about some side effects of steroid abuse to understand the concept in a clear manner.
Steroid abuse can lead to side effects such as hair loss, liver problems, insomnia, acne, headaches, jaundice, hypertension, aggression and hostility, irritability, anxiety, paranoia, mood swings, depression, suicidal thoughts, osteoporosis, menstrual irregularities, enlarged clitoris, and prostate and fertility problems. Apart from these health complications, steroid abuse can also lead to cancer, jaundice, liver damage, bleeding, hepatitis, gynecomastia, deepened voice, insomnia, and stunted growth.
After reading about the associated complications, one can easily understand that steroid abuse must be avoided at all stages. All in all, every one must stay away from indiscriminate usage of steroids so that steroid side effects do not happen at the first place.
For many, the phrase steroids and women makes as much sense as saying pickles and tires, and for the vast majority, this is where the discussion ends, but it doesn’t mean that’s where it should end. In the performance enhancing world, steroids and women is an extremely important topic as many women supplement and far more so than you might imagine. Absolutely, the use of anabolic androgenic steroids can be far more damaging to females than males, but if supplementation is done properly, and in a responsible manner, most women can supplement with success. While this remains true, most women will find they have fewer anabolic steroids from which they can choose; further, they will find the doses to be necessarily much lower if success is to be obtained while still maintaining health and femininity. Even so, as successful use is possible the issue of steroids and women and all it entails is worthy of discussion.
For the vast majority of women, the fear of anabolic steroids is based on one simple fact; they can absolutely destroy your femininity. Remember, anabolic steroids are based on the primary androgen testosterone and as this androgen is responsible for promoting male sexual characteristics anabolic steroids can be damaging in this regard. Of course, contrary to most peoples understanding women produce testosterone too and vitally so; although at about one-tenth the rate of men. When steroids and women collide the problems that often occur surround virilization effects. Such effects as stated can negatively impact a woman’s basic female features, taking away from her what in many ways makes her just that; a female. Such effects include and may not be limited to:

If you add in minor steroid use to the equation you’ll have something truly special, and that’s exactly what many women do; a small dosing of many performance enhancing drugs.

While some men will only stack anabolic steroids, leaving other performance drugs out of the equation, especially during a bulking phase, as steroids and women share a different relationship, we’ll see things may look a little differently. We have laid out some solid examples of how you might supplement while gaining success and remaining safe.
