There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.

The normal dosage for men is betwen 30-70 mg per day for the tablets and 25-50 mg per day for the injectable version of winstrol. Winstrol is often combined with other steroids depending on what the personal goals of the athlete are. To gain muscle mass (bulk up), winstrol is best combined with a stronger androgen such as testosterone. This will give the cycle a good anabolic effect while minimizing estrogenic activity. This results in excellent increases in lean muscle mass, as opposed to the more common bulking cycle which greatly increases muscle mass while also increasing water retention and some gains in fat. To lose fat (cut up), winstrol is best combined with a non-aromatizing androgen such as trenbolone or halotestin. This combination can create a strongly defined, hard look. This is a very attractive look sought out by many bodybuilders.
Women should take around 5-10 mg daily for the recommended length of time of 4-6 weeks.
