Stanozolol, commonly known as Winstrol is a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) anabolic steroid of immense popularity among many performance enhancing athletes. Popular among bodybuilders and athletes of all types this is one of the few steroids that can actually be used safely by women. Compared to many other anabolic steroids the Stanozolol hormone is rather mild in nature yet Winstrol results can be quite promising when the steroid is used for the right purpose.
The Stanozolol hormone has been very popular in the world of competitive sports for decades; were talking about everything from football to baseball and even track and field; in-fact, it is track and field that gave this steroid world renowned popularity. The reason is simple; Winstrol results in increased strength and increased speed in the athlete. This not only enables the athlete to train harder but garners him the ability to perform his desired sport at the highest level. To put it simply, while it may sound very simplistic its the easiest way to look at it; Winstrol results in a more effective and efficient athlete. No, it will not make a terrible athlete a great one; this is something many fail to understand about anabolic androgenic steroids in general; it will however allow and enable the athlete to perform at his or her peak potential of which cannot be obtained without.
The use of Winstrol results in very little by way of increasing size; however, any increase in actual size it brings will be pure muscle tissue gain as there will be no water retention as it does not aromatize. Even so, this is a very poor bulking agent and is rarely used for this purpose. While the latter is true, Winstrol results in greatly decreasing SHBG and as such creates a higher level of synergy with other anabolic steroids and even allows your free testosterone levels to increase. Some have often speculated this may also aid in solidifying gains made while on cycle and as the steroid functions in this manner it could be a useful gaining tool if used for this purpose. However, most will find other options to be far more beneficial and will generally find off-season Winstrol results of very little note.
Beyond direct athletic performance Winstrol results are best suited toward the dieting bodybuilder or gym rat; simply the individual looking for a tighter, leaner and harder physique. The Stanozolol hormone greatly preserves lean muscle tissue and strength and this is a wonderful trait while on a calorie restricted diet; the more muscle you can hang onto while dieting the greater your metabolism will be and the better youll look in the end. Further and of an even more worthy note, Winstrol results in a much harder physique and one that is more vascular as well. This can be a very nice trait but one needs to understand you need to be at a lean state already for it to have any true noticeable effect.
In the world of competitive bodybuilding Winstrol is often used during a contest cycle, especially the latter half and often at a higher dose during the last two weeks. As body-fat levels are already low during this period this enables the physique to have a harder appearance both visually and even to the touch. When bodybuilders couple this with other hardening agents such as Trenbolone or even to a degree Masteron you have a physique if lean enough that is very hard to beat.
Winstrol results for women can be quite amazing and it generally only takes a very small amount; 10mg per day is often just about perfect for any woman. Further, as women are more sensitive to anabolic steroids in general they will actually get more out of the Stanozolol hormone in-terms of growth than a man ever will so it could be effectively used for a bulking or off-season period with far greater effectiveness. Even so, as is with a man it will be general athletic performance and the cutting phase most woman will find the steroid most useful.
It is very important to note; there is a risk when a woman supplements with anabolic androgenic steroids and Winstrol makes no exception, it simply carries with it a lesser probability when used responsibly. Some women may experience symptoms of virilization but most will not if their dose is kept low and those who do can simply discontinue use as soon as symptoms show and they will be fine. If the symptoms are ignored and you persist the symptoms will become permanent.
