Stanozolol is an anabolic steroid drug, a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (it differs by a carbonyl group of the 3rd position substituted with + 3,2-pyrazole and methyl in the 17α-position). Stanozolol is a progesterone antagonist.

Brand names under which stanozolol is or has been marketed include Anaysynth, Menabol, Neurabol Caps., Stanabolic (veterinary), Stanazol (veterinary), Stanol, Stanozolol, Stanztab, Stargate (veterinary), Stromba, Strombaject, Sungate (veterinary), Tevabolin, Winstrol, Winstrol Depot, and Winstrol-V (veterinary)(from Wikipedia)

The drug, which is completely prohibited for use in sports, is unofficially used by athletes as doping, as well as in bodybuilding, boxing, wrestling, mixed martial arts, athletics, weightlifting, and many other sports. It was also used as a dope for racehorses. (Wikipedia)

After the precise methods for detecting stanozolol were developed, its use in professional sports began to decline. Along with Nandrolone, Clenbuterol, Methandrostenolone and Methyltestosterone, it is among the “top five” doping drugs that laboratories must determine with maximum sensitivity. (Wiki)

Steroid Release Forms

Stanozolol is available in both oral and injectable forms. Injectable stanozolol – aqueous suspension. When administered intramuscularly, the effectiveness of stanozolol is approximately one and a half times higher. (Wikipedia)

WADA motivates the prohibition of all drugs exclusively the purity of the sport and the safety of athletes. But we both know …

In fact, all derivatives of Testosterone are anabolic steroids.

A steroid is not always the sex hormone Testosterone. Steroids include prednisone, insulin, and many other hormones that are somehow capable of having a highly active index of influence on ability in sports.

The drug is banned absolutely and completely after the death of well-known Anders Miller. After this accident, WADA decided to ban the use of all steroid drugs. Stanozolol also appeared on this list.

In 1996, an official ban on the use of anabolic steroids in bodybuilding was introduced. Among the other derivatives of Testosterone was also Stanozolol. Of course, in other sports, such as weightlifting, athletics, gymnastics, etc., it was banned even earlier.

Promises from sellers and manufacturers:

  • pronounced increase in dry weight;
  • fat burning;
  • increase in power indicators;
  • growth of explosive strength and endurance;
  • pronounced anti-catabolic effect;
  • saturation of tissues with oxygen;
  • acceleration of weight loss processes.

Real Stanozolol Effects:

  • increased stamina;
  • Increased absorption of nutrients;
  • growth of power indicators;
  • acceleration of weight loss processes.

An increase in endurance when taking Winstrol is noticed by absolutely everyone, even those who are not related to professional sports, but do it on their own to maintain their shape and at the same time sometimes take gentle courses of some anabolic steroids.

Endurance increases literally after 7 – 10 days of intake, and this is an average statistic.

The main effect for which athletes use it is weight loss. It is used by SOLO or in conjunction with injectable forms of Testosterone, such as:

Stanozolol + Testosterone Enanthate;

Stanozolol + Testosterone Propionate;

Stanozolol + Masteron + Aquatest;

Stanozolol + Trenbolone Acetate;

And also as SOLO cycle.

Steroids do not work on the principle of increasing strength or direct effects on the muscles, but on the principle of accelerating the absorption of nutrients that you get with food.

In other words, food, getting into the body, is not fully absorbed. Something is assimilated, that something, through insulin, is transferred to fat cells (in reserve), but something just goes outside without being completely processed. When using Steroids, including Stanozolol, all incoming food is absorbed with a high coefficient of productivity. Thus, the percentage of food that is absorbed is increased and fat formation is not allowed. Therefore, it is often used for weight loss and drying.

Side Effects

  • crunch in the joints;
  • stagnation of bile;
  • heartburn;
  • shifts of menstrual cycles.

Very rare:

  • pain in the liver;
  • the development of osteochondrosis;
  • toxic liver damage;
  • a change in the ratio of cholesterol;
  • increase in blood pressure.

Side effects are very pronounced and are seen by many as problems with the joints.

Usually, the duration of the Stanozolol cycle is about 2 months. If you use dosages of 20 – 30 mg, even a maximum of 40 mg, then you will not even notice these side effects. But it is worth increasing the dosage to 50 mg literally in a month, a crunch will begin in the knees, elbows, intervertebral discs will start to fly out. Therefore, these side effects must be eliminated initially. This is done as follows: as a rule, in winter you use an insufficient amount of liquid for drinking. At the same time, as you know, during training you need to drink a large amount of liquid. And when using Stanozolol, this must be done with greater responsibility and in large quantities. If we say in the winter, you drank 2 liters in one workout, then when using Stanozolol, you need to drink – 3.5 – 4 liters of water. At the same time, its detrimental effect on the joints is prevented and somewhat delays the moment when these phenomena begin to manifest. To completely minimize them, it is necessary to additionally use preventive measures. This is the combined use of glucosamine and chondroitin, since individually they work poorly. Glucosamine at least 2000 mg and chondroitin 800 mg. And it is undesirable to use them separately.

In the summer, as you know, the amount of fluid you drink should be increased at least 1.5 times. Only in this way can you avoid side effects.

Women also use Stanozolol at a dosage of 20 mg, sometimes 30 mg. When used in a dosage of 20 mg it is almost completely safe and the effects of masculinization are reduced to a minimum. It is extremely undesirable to use Winstrol (tablet or injection) for these purposes, although it is based on the same Stanozolol, but when it is used, virilization phenomena appear.

Virilization / masculinization is a manifestation of male sexual characteristics in a woman. The appearance of pronounced cheekbones, textured neck, male facial features, male-type hairline and so on.

I would like to note that anabolic steroids are only catalysts for triggering the effects you need. To obtain the desired results from them, it is necessary to observe certain nutritional conditions, hard training, proper rest and of course the necessary pharmacy supplements to prevent side effects.

What sellers and manufacturers promise:

  • an increase in dry muscle mass up to 5 kg per month;
  • tangible results even when using SOLO.

Real effects:

  • a slight increase in muscle mass, up to 2 kg per month;
  • increased venous;
  • increase in muscle density.

The use of Stanozolol “SOLO” for muscle gain is very poorly expressed. But paired with, say, Testosterone Enanthate, it can give a very good result. Reduces water filling, even if you use a large amount of carbohydrates in the food, because of which, in principle, this filling happens.

At the same time, if you use its “SOLO”, then this is perhaps the most useful drug to date. In this form, it can be used, except for the first year, or just try, feel, as they say, at least part of the effect that “adult” steroids give, such as Nandrolone Decanoate, Testosterone Enanthate and others.

It has also been verified in practice that it raises power indicators well. For example, he is ready to raise the result in a bench press to 30 kg. True, this is a one-time maximum.

We must warn you that this article is not a guide to use, but is for guidance only.

Any use of anabolic steroids, even such as Stanozolol, entails certain consequences. You have to be prepared for this. If you don’t know at least the basics of medicine, if you don’t have an adequate knowledgeable person who can tell you how to proceed, then we strongly advise against starting even such a simple course to ensure the safety of your health. Sometimes it’s better to just train as they say for yourself than to climb into something that you don’t understand or you can get confused. And if there are any problems begin, especially if you joke with steroids, then you will not be able to deal with them yourself any more, and it is not advisable to do this. Panic can begin and all this can discourage any desire to train at all.
