Winstrol is stacked with other testosterone derived anabolic steroids in case of bodybuilders. It is preferred over other derivatives by most of the steroid users as it is known to provide strength without unusual gain in weight. Since it does not have a tendency of excessive water retention and has a diuretic effect on the body, it is preferred for that reasons too. Winstrol is usually administered to bodybuilders and athletes for the purpose of losing fat while sustaining lean body mass (LBM). To assist in preserving lean body mass along with metabolizing adipose tissues, it is generally used in Cutting Cycle.
