Winstrol is a brand name for the anabolic steroid stanozolol. Which is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone. It is an anabolic steroid with a slightly greater affinity for muscle growth than androgenic activity. While dihydrotestosterone provides androgenic side effects when administered, stanozolol instead promotes quality muscle growth. The anabolic properties are still considered mild in comparison to many stronger compounds.
Its anabolic properties are similarly comparable to Dianabol (Methandrostenolone), although it does not have the same tendency to cause water retention. Stanozolol contains the same c17-methylation as seen with Dianabol, as it has the same alteration so that it can allow for oral administration. An injectable form is also available.
Stanozolol is not capable of converting into estrogen and an anti-estrogen is not a necessity when using it. Gynecomastia is never a concern even among estrogen sensitive individuals. Stanazolol allows for lean muscle growth, with lean definition and zero fear of excess fluid retention. It is considered a great steroid for use during cutting cycles. It is also very popular among athletes in sports such as athletics.
The usual dosage for men is 50-100mg per day for the tablets and 25-50mg per day with the injectable version. Women usually take around 5-10mg daily. Female athletes usually find stanozolol very tolerable.
