Winstrol (Stanozolol) is an Anabolic Steroid that was derived from Testosterone in 1962 by Winthrop Labs . The original purpose of this steroid was to help treat people suffering from anemia, it is also often used for veterinary purposes. This high anabolic, low androgenic steroid does not bind to the androgen receptor. For this reason Winstrol is considered a weak steroid in terms of its muscle building properties, it does however cause great increases in strength. Stanozolol is also a popular steroid for females due to its low androgenic properties it makes it a safer choice as side effects such as voice deepening and facial hair are a lower risk when compared to steroids such as Dianabol . This doesn’t mean females should use Winstrol as irreversible masculine side effects are still a risk.
Though men can best utilize stanozolol in a cutting cycle, women have more options when it comes to this versatile steroid. Many women want to know what does stanozolol do for their unique bodies, and the answer is quite complex. At very low doses, stanozolol has the same effect on women as on men – it can help them shed body fat while maintaining lean muscle mass. At higher doses (though still much lower than their male counterparts’ doses), it can help them gain as much as 10 to 15 pounds of muscle. The chart below shows the differences in dosage and how they can affect a woman’s body.
Beyond the bodybuilding world Winstrol has firmly placed itself on the pedestal of most well-known anabolics on the planet thanks to its use in professional sports by individuals in just about every professional sport imaginable. Winstrol as we discussed can greatly increase strength and this includes an increase in ones strength of speed. Further, due to its inability to promote massive gains in muscle tissue, it is a drug that can be used in low doses without generating a lot of suspicion. More importantly, Winstrol is only detectable for a very short period of time and is very, very easy to cover up if a drug test is made known to the athlete; these things make Winstrol a top choice for many professional athletes and for obvious reasons.
