Although Winstrol is used to prevent muscle wasting, it is not what we would call a bulking steroid. You will rarely see this steroid out of season for mass gain. However, it can be used to enhance the activity of other steroids in use due to the strong SHBG reduction it provides, but this is generally not recommended. As we delve deeper into the side effects of Winstrol, we will find that it is highly hepatotoxic and should only be used when most helpful. For a male athlete, this will not be the case during the bulking phase.
Regarding off-season swelling, we could make more exceptions for women. Women are much more sensitive to steroids and short pulse shots can be very helpful at this stage. But then again, there are probably better options.
The effects of Winstrol are by far the most beneficial for directly improving athletic performance. We are talking about professional athletes, not bodybuilders or athletes. This steroid has the ability to dramatically increase strength, which can be expressed in both power and speed. Plus, it will do so without adding a lot of extra weight, which may annoy some depending on the sport, as well as attract unwanted attention from prying eyes. Some have said that Winstrol is not suitable for competitive athletes, especially athletes in explosive sports due to the potential for weakening of tendons, but it is more or less anecdotal hysteria that supports this claim. In fact, many studies have shown that it can have a positive effect on strengthening tendons, and we already know it’s good for bones. Otherwise, it would not be used to treat osteoporosis.
There are also people who complain of joint pain while using Winstrol. Since the steroid doesn’t aromatize, the water doesn’t linger, but the “dry feeling” might not be what many people think. Most of those using the steroid will be physical athletes or sports enthusiasts during the cutting phase. They also usually add it to their diet later in the diet when they are already lean. Generally, when you get very lean, in bodybuilding, the joints get a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol, this discomfort could potentially exist. As for professional athletes who have almost every steroid available to them, remember: if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports, many athletes wouldn’t make it their primary and preferred choice. In fact, combining winstrol with low doses of nandrolone is a very common combination among many athletes.
Aside from athletics, the effects of Winstrol for the gym or bodybuilding will be best when you have already lost weight. The steroid will help you look leaner and tougher, but only if you are relatively thin. It will also help preserve muscle tissue, but not to the extent often required at this stage. It is generally recommended to use Winstrol only as a secondary steroid and not as a base steroid.
Both men and women can greatly benefit from Winstrol during the cutting phase. Although not the best protector of muscle tissue, many report retaining more strength which is often lost when dieting when Winstrol is in play. Vascularity should also become more pronounced and overall the person should feel an overall improvement in clarity.
Side effects of Winstrol:
Winstrol side effects do exist, but they are mostly listed as possible, not guaranteed. Winstrol side effects can be controlled, but it will take some effort on your part. There is also always the problem of individual response. We all react differently to different things. This not only applies to various anabolic steroids, but to all things that we put into our bodies. In most cases you can take aspirin, but there are others who will suffer terrible side effects if they touch the first pill. Most of us can tolerate dairy products, but there are others who get very sick just looking at a glass of milk. The individual response speaks volumes. With that in mind
Winstrol has no estrogenic effect. This anabolic steroid does not aromatize at all, making the estrogenic side effects of Winstrol impossible to exploit. This steroid cannot causegynecomastia or excessive water retention. Water retention is usually the main cause of steroid-related high blood pressure. High blood pressure is always possible, but with healthy lifestyle choices the chances are very high. It also assumes the absence of underlying issues.
WHO Androgenic side effects of Winstrol are possible. However, although possible, this steroid does not have much androgenic activity. Acne and accelerated hair loss are possible in people predisposed to male pattern baldness. Although possible, they are strongly associated with a genetic predisposition. If you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness, you will not lose your hair. Acne is similar, as those who are genetically susceptible to acne will be the first to encounter the problem. Constantly keeping the skin clean and dry will provide reliable protection.
To combat the androgenic side effects of any anabolic steroid, many often turn to 5-alpha reductase inhibitors such as finasteride. However, it will not work with all steroids and will not work with Winstrol at all. These inhibitors work by inhibiting the decline of testosterone to DHT which occurs due to the metabolism of the hormone testosterone by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. The enzyme 5-alpha reductase does not metabolize the hormone stanozolol; after all, it’s already DHT.
Androgenic side effects of Winstrol can also include virilization in women. Virilization symptoms include hair growth, deepening of the vocal cords, and enlargement of the clitoris. Many women can take the stanozolol hormone without these effects, but they will need to keep the dose fairly low. If the dose is kept low, due to the low androgenicity of the hormone, many women avoid virilization. However, there is always a question of individual answer. If, for any reason, virilization symptoms begin to appear, if use is discontinued at the very beginning, they will quickly disappear. If you ignore the symptoms and keep taking it, the symptoms may become irreversible.
Of all the possible Winstrol side effects, cardiovascular disease, especially cholesterol, is the most likely. The hormone stanozolol is known to lower HDL (good) cholesterol and raise LDL (bad) cholesterol.
All C17-aa oral anabolic steroids are well known to have a much stronger negative effect on cholesterol control, and oral Winstrol is no different. As for injectable Winstrol Depot, it could potentially have the same effect as the anabolic steroid C17-aa. Whichever form of winstrol you choose, cholesterol will be a concern.
Although Winstrol can be very harsh on cholesterol, it can be taken without much effort, but it will take some effort on your part. If you already suffer from high cholesterol, do not touch this steroid. If you are healthy enough to consume it, you definitely need to watch your cholesterol levels. To maintain healthy levels, it is also recommended that your diet be rich in omega fatty acids. Daily fish oil supplementation is recommended, along with limiting saturated fats and simple sugars. You can also consider an antioxidant formula for cholesterol and make sure you always get plenty of cardiovascular exercise in your daily life.
Winstrol significantly suppresses natural testosterone production. This will not completely suppress production, but will lead to low testosterone levels if exogenous testosterone is not used. All men who take the hormone stanozolol can easily avoid low testosterone if they take some form of exogenous testosterone at the same time. Women will not need exogenous testosterone treatment.
Once all steroids are stopped, natural testosterone production will resume on its own. However, it will take some time for your levels to return to normal. For this reason, most men are advised to follow a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan after taking anabolic steroids. The PCT plan will stimulate natural production and allow your levels to increase faster than otherwise. This alone will not bring your levels back to normal, there is no PCT plan on Earth that can do that. However, this ensures that you have enough testosterone for your body to function properly while your levelsx continue to increase naturally.
Important Notes on Natural Testosterone Recovery; natural recovery suggests that the condition of low testosterone did not exist before. It is also suggested that the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular (HPTA) axis was not severely damaged due to improper supplementation practices.
Winstrol is a hepatotoxic anabolic steroid, as are all C17-aa anabolic steroids. However, the stress that a C17-aa steroid can cause in the liver will vary greatly depending on the C17-aa steroid in question. Winstrol is significantly more hepatotoxic than Anavar (Oxandrolone) on a milligram basis, but appears to be less hepatotoxic on a milligram basis than steroids such as Dianabol (Methandrostenolone).
When using this steroid, the levels of liver enzymes increase. Low doses don’t seem to cause much stress, but keep in mind that the higher the dose, the more stress develops. It is also important to remember that high levels of enzymes do not mean damage, but rather an indicator of stress. However, damage may occur and appropriate measures will be taken to avoid any damage. If your liver is unhealthy, you should not use this steroid under any circumstances.
If you are healthy enough to use it, general use should be limited to 6-8 weeks and no other C17-aa steroids should be used for at least 6-8 weeks after discontinuing use . It would be better to increase the interval between periods of use. It is also important to avoid excessive alcohol consumption during use. In itself, excessive consumption is very stressful for the liver, and in combination with the C17-aa steroid, it only increases stress. Many will find it best to avoid drinking alcohol, as alcohol is one of the most harmful substances we can introduce into our bodies. In addition to alcohol, it is recommended to avoid all over-the-counter medications as much as possible. Many over-the-counter medications put a lot of pressure on the liver. In fact, some of them are more hepatotoxic than many anabolic steroids. The use of over-the-counter medications should only be limited when absolutely necessary. It is also recommended to take liver detox supplements when using Winstrol or any C17-aa steroid. If you follow these guidelines, although the enzyme values will increase, if there is no underlying problem, the values should return to normal shortly after use is discontinued and no harm will occur.
A final note regarding hepatotoxicity, both oral and injectable Winstrol are hepatotoxic. If you want to avoid liver stress, you should avoid all C17-aa steroids, whether oral or injectable.
