Winstrol is a very popular anabolic androgenic steroid, used orally or in the form of injections. Along with the deck and danabol, it is most often used by modern sportsmen.

Stanozolol is commonly called “vinny” (Winstrol). As already noted, Winstrol is available in two forms: in tablets and ampoules. The solution for injection is the same methylated compound as the tablet. Winstrol has a quick but short-acting effect for 8 hours.

The injection form of vinny gives better results. It is assumed that the drug in the form of tablets during the first passage is more strongly cleaved in the liver, therefore less active substance enters the blood.

Side effects WinstrolWhen administering Winstrol intramuscularly, the same complications can occur as with the introduction of other drugs: abscesses and seals. Injections are sometimes painful, so it is recommended to inject the drug into different parts of the body. Winstrol can drink. This is possible because Winstrol for injection has the same composition as the tablets (as mentioned above). In addition, as a methylated steroid, Winstrol does not break down in the liver.

Winstrol, like danabol, is not used for a long time, since it is a 17-alpha-alkylated drug. You can take it 4-6 weeks, no more. There are cases when some athletes took it for 8 weeks and even longer without any problems for the liver. For safety reasons, it is best not to take the drug for such a long period. A course lasting 4-6 weeks gives good results, especially in combination with complex esters of a longer duration. Getting into the blood, Winstrol quickly begins to act. But this action is short-lived. Frequent injections or taking of tablets allow you to achieve results fairly quickly. For the same purpose, danabol is also used.

Winstrol does not give such side effects as gynecomastia and water retention in the body. And this is another advantage that makes it attractive in the eyes of athletes who want to build muscle. Winstrol is a 5-alpha reconstituted substrate. 5-alpha reductase disrupts the double bond between positions 4 and 5, which is necessary for the conversion of aromatase to estrogen. Aromatase is the main enzyme, which is used to produce estrogen in the male body. Therefore, Winstrol fits well for those who are afraid of the possibility of developing gynecomastia.

Winstrol – Stanozolol Facts and Lies

Since Winstrol is unable to convert into estrogens, during the course of this steroid, there is no need to additionally take anti-estrogens, such as tamoxifen or clomid. When using Winstrol, gynecomastia does not develop even in the most sensitive athletes. Winstrol is perfect for gaining muscle mass, as it does not retain water in the body. The thing is that excess fluid accumulates in the body due to estrogen. Winstrol is perfect for those athletes who want to simultaneously get both strength and speed.

Winstrol has antiprogestagen activity. It binds and competes for the receptors of progesterone in the same way that clomid or tamoxifen binds the estrogen receptors. It is believed that in this way Winstrol suppresses progestogen activity. Progesterone plays a role in the development of gynecomastia, since it can enhance the side effects of estrogen, including gynecomastia.

Since injections of Winstrol need to do every laziness, the drug is injected into different places. For example, use the four-headed muscle, shoulder, biceps, three-headed muscle. Until now, circles of bodybuilders are arguing about whether the introduction of the drug in the muscle contributes to its local growth.

Before the introduction of the drug, it should be shaken well to mix. When the ampoule with the solution for a long time is at rest, Winstrol settles on the bottom. Shake the ampoule before you take the solution into the syringe or mix it before you drink it.

Side effects

When using Winstrol, there are rarely observed side effects common to steroids: acne, water retention in the body, increase in blood pressure and aromatization, which leads to the development of gynecomastia. Winstrol does not turn into the body in dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and almost does not suppress the function of producing the body’s own testosterone (HPTA). However, being a 17-alpha alkylated drug, it can be toxic to the liver in large doses or with prolonged use. Although this toxicity is less pronounced than most other 17-AA steroids, prolonged courses or the use of large doses usually cause an increase in liver parameters.


The usual dose for men is 35-75 mg per day in tablets and 25-50 mg per day of Winstrol in the form of injections. Depending on the purpose of taking steroids, Winstrol is combined with other drugs. For a set of muscle mass (massiveness) Winstrol is best combined with a stronger androgen, such as testosterone. Such a combined course gives a good anabolic effect and at the same time minimizes the effect of estrogens. This combination of drugs perfectly allows you to gain dry muscle mass unlike conventional steroid courses, when the increase in muscle mass is accompanied by the accumulation of fluid in the body and some accumulation of fat. To lose weight (get rid of fat), Winstrol is best combined with non-aromatizing androgens, such as trenbolone or primobolan. This combination makes the muscles firm and relief. Just about this and dream of many bodybuilders.

Women are recommended to take daily about 5-10 mg for 4-6 weeks.
