While a fantastic steroid for enhancing athletic performance, the vast majority who supplement will do so for physique related purposes, and to enjoy such benefits it's normally best to already be a little lean. The hardening and physique enhancing traits will not shine through a layer of body-fat, and this means use will normally be best towards the latter half of a diet. Of course, by its nature, Winstrol will actually help you lose some of the fat you're holding onto; in-fact, it's sometimes prescribed for those who suffer from obesity due to hormonal imbalances. Beyond obesity, Winstrol is also used to treat anemia, angioedema and conditions where severe strength loss may have occurred; truly a fantastic steroid.
Although Winstrol does possess a weaker androgenic strength rating than Testosterone does, androgenic side effects are still a potential risk, though much lower, and may only effect users significantly if they are especially sensitive to androgens. Androgenic side effects can include increased oily skin and acne, hair growth on the body, MPB (male pattern baldness), and BPH (Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy). The use of a 5-alpha reductase (5AR) inhibitor, such as Finasteride, Dutasteride, Proscar, or Propecia will be completely ineffective here, as Winstrol does not convert into DHT.
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.
