Winstrol is an androgen and anabolic steroid (AAS) derived from dihydrotestosterone (DHT), just like Anavar (oxandrolone). This is actually a brand name of stanozolol. Although it has medical uses, the drug is more popular these days for its use by bodybuilders and athletes.
Stanozolol is a synthetic drug. It is a 17-alpha alkylated androstane steroid that comes from an alteration of 5-alpha DHT. The structural alterations that result in the compound include attachment of a pyrazole ring to the A ring of the nucleus. There is also an addition of a methyl group at the 17th carbon position. This helps to boost its oral bioavailability.
Winthrop Laboratories developed the drug in the late 1950s. It was introduced into the American market in 1962 under the brand name “Winstrol.” This steroid is sold under the name “Stromba” in Europe.
Winstrol, like androgens such as testosterone and DHT, is an agonist of the androgen receptor. It is an already 5-alpha reduced steroid, which means it does not aromatize, which means that it is less likely to lead to water retention and other estrogenic effects.
As we noted, Winstrol is just a brand name of the generic stanozolol. The drug has a number of other unofficial names, including stanazol and stanazolol. Stanozolol has been marketed under numerous brand names, apart from Winstrol, including:
As a result of the presence of a 17-alpha methyl group, stanozolol is orally active. That means you can take it orally without noticing a significant difference in efficacy. It is also available in injectable form.
For therapeutic purposes, usual daily oral dosage for men is about 6 mg, which may be divided into three doses. The typical for women is about 4 mg a day but may rise to 6 mg, if considered safe. The injectable form is commonly administered once in 2 or 3 weeks at a dose of 50 mg.
Daily dosage for the oral form thought to be safe is about 25 mg, but some users take up to 80 mg. The injectable form may be taken at a dose of 50 mg (up to 100 mg) every other day.
When talking performance and bodybuilding benefits, female users will be better off sticking to the oral form of Winstrol.
Anabolic steroids are typically used in stacks to enhance their efficacy. The particular goal of a user will determine what other compounds to combine Winstrol with.
Those interested in cutting – the main reason many bodybuilders use it – may stack it with Trenbolone. Winstrol can provide support to testosterone for muscle mass building. The combination with Nandrolone is popular among athletes, with a view to warding off potential joint pain.
Cycles of use typically range from 4 to 6 weeks.
