Winstrol provides many benefits to a user and is not surprisingly a favorite amongst many. Possessing the ability to add quality and sustainable size while allowing for aesthetically pleasing results is a look that is difficult to achieve but one of the most sought after. Winstrol use provides significant help in achieving this result. Although winstrol sounds like a no brainer, it can be very difficult for many users to cycle as the side effects can become an issue. Understanding what comes with winstrol use, how to protect yourself and to dose it properly are integral before beginning use. One must fully understand and address any possible side effects before determining the correct dosing scheme to utilize.
Winstrol is a DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) derivative. DHT is looked upon as a chemical cousin of testosterone. It is responsible for the sexual differentiation that occurs in the womb before we are born. It is the dihydrotestosterone levels in the womb that determine whether or not the fetus will develop into a male or female. Clearly, DHT is an extremely strong androgen and is the most androgenic of all hormones. DHT plays a significant role in hair loss. This is a side effect that is very common with winstrol use and if one is susceptible to male pattern baldness, winstrol may not be an optimal choice. Winstrol is a methylated oral steroid and can wreak havoc on a users internal organs, especially cholesterol. Winstrol can also cause high amounts of joint pain due to the extreme drying out that can occur within a user's body. Lastly, winstrol will cause testosterone suppression, thus the need for a full PCT (post cycle therapy) with any use.
Before you begin your cycle, you should have ALL supports, ancillaries and post cycle products ON HAND and ready for use. One of the hardest lessons learned amongst steroid users is either not understanding or not addressing possible side effects. To address hair loss, there are several products on the market that can help but have shown to be extremely dangerous, both short and long term. It is extremely important to do thorough research before divulging into any anti hair loss products. A strong joint protectant or formula should be used in conjunction with winstrol use. It is imperative to protect yourself against the havoc winstrol could potentially wreak on your liver, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. There are several all in one cycle support protectants to select from or you could choose to buy ingredients separately at any vitamin store. Here are a few examples of protectants: Hawthorne Berry, Milk Thistle, Tudca, COQ10, detoxifying formulas, etc. There are many to choose from but it is extremely important to use full protection with an oral steroid.
Winstrol is a steroid that does not need to be dosed at extreme doses to be effective. The most common length of time winstrol is used is 6 weeks. It can safely be ran up to 8 weeks but a user may find the sides to become unbearable at this point. Eight weeks would be the top end of dosing but 6 will be the most optimal. A user can still see strong results at 4 weeks but may find that 4 weeks is not a sufficient amount of time. Winstrol is most effectively dosed at 50 mg per day for 6 weeks. A user will find that exceeding this dose will not only bring on many more side effects also be extremely difficult and unlikely to sustain for a six week run. Winstrol can be used in several different ways, but the most common and popular way to use it is at the end of a cycle, to add the muscle hardening look that many users desire. It will help to “clean up” gains made on cycle and lead one into Post Cycle Therapy with a more aesthetically pleasing look. Another dosing pattern to consider is dropping the dose in half at 25 mg per day. This dosing pattern may seem to be conservative, but if ran in conjunction with the proper stack, it can be extremely effective. At this more moderate dose, a user allows itself to acclimate to the side effects, be more effective in all aspects of a cycle due to lessening of side effects and still see excellent results. Winstrol can be used as a stand alone but will be far more effective ran in conjunction with testosterone and other anabolics. Winstrol should not be taken lightly and a user may want to tread lightly upon initial use and adjust dosing accordingly.
Winstrol dosing is something that should be taken very serious as the side effects from it can become a hindrance if not properly used. Determining what your body can handle by easing into dosing may be the safest and smartest method. Putting health and safety first is integral in utilizing these compounds to the highest extent and ensuring yourself the safest yet most effective scenario possible. Winstrol can show amazing results and if dosed properly, is a favorite amongst many.
