Overall, Stanozolol is a highly effective anabolic steroid. It’s a great steroid as a part of a cutting plan and one of the greatest anabolic steroids for promoting athletic enhancement. Even though it has negative side effects concerning cholesterol and the liver, these factors can be controlled. If used for the right purpose and with an understanding of the hormone, you will find Stanozolol a fantastic steroid.

Stanozolol is by far one of the most popular anabolic steroids of all time and one of the oldest anabolic steroids we have in existence. A favorite steroid among athletes and bodybuilders, it is successfully used in the medical community. Unlike many anabolic steroids, Stanozolol has never lost its FDA approval in the U.S.. It’s an anabolic steroid that has been and is continually found in nearly every sport across the globe.
Stanozolol is not what we’d call a bulking steroid. You will rarely find Stanozolol in an off-season mass gaining stack. However, it could be used in an effort to enhance the activity of the other steroids being used.
When it comes to off-season bulking, we could make more of an exception with female use. Females are far more sensitive to Stanozolol and short burst plans could be very beneficial during this phase. But again, there are probably better off-season options for most women.
The effects of Stanozolol are undoubtedly most beneficial to direct performance enhancement. We’re talking about functional competitive athletes, not bodybuilders or physique athletes. This steroid has the ability to greatly increase both power and speed. Further, it will accomplish this without adding a lot of additional weight. There have been rumours that Stanozolol isn’t good for competitive athletes due to potential weakening of the tendons, however this is far from truth. In fact, many studies have shown Stanozolol has a positive impact on strengthening tendons and bones (in the medical world, it’s used to treat osteoporosis).
Stanozolol, however, is one of the best choices for a cutting cycle as it will produce a harder and more defined look. This look will not appear if you’re not already lean but will make a lean physique look even better. It’s also a great for preserving strength that’s often lost when hard dieting is at hand. Hard dieting that is necessarily accompanied by low caloric intake will often result in strength loss and Stanozolol can help reduce this loss. It’s also a great steroid for preserving lean mass that is often lost for the same reasons strength is diminished.
The joint pain sometimes associated with Stanozolol will most often show up at the end of the cutting cycle when the individual is already lean and dryer than normal. When we’re extremely lean and dry, it’s not uncommon for our joints to ache. Some bodybuilders and some athletes will use a low dose of Nandrolone to help combat the achy joints.
Both men and women can greatly benefit from Stanozolol during the cutting phase. While it won’t be the best lean tissue preserver, many report maintaining more of their strength that is often lost when dieting.
The usual dosage for physique or performance-enhancing purposes is between 15-25mg per day, taken for no longer than 6-8 weeks.
For the performance enhancing athlete, 50mg every other day is the most common among male athletes. It is not uncommon for doses to reach 100mg at the end of a cutting cycle, especially competitive bodybuilding cycles but normally only the last 1-2 weeks before competition. High-end doses that surpass this time frame will more than likely cause enormous amounts of liver strain.
5mg Stanozolol is the most common female dose. 5mg is all most women will need but some will increase to 10mg per day if virilization is controllable.
Stanozolol side effects
Stanozolol is not estrogenic. This steroid cannot cause gynecomastia or excess water retention, which is the primary cause of steroid related high blood pressure.
Stanozolol does not produce a lot of androgenic activity. Acne and accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness are all possible. If you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness, you will not lose any hair. Acne is similar as those who are genetically sensitive to acne will be the first to have a problem.
The androgenic side effects of Stanozolol can also include virilization in women. Virilization symptoms include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. Many women can supplement with the Stanozolol hormone without such effects occurring but they will need to keep the dose rather low. If for any reason virilization symptoms begin to show, if use is discontinued at their onset they will fade away rapidly. If the symptoms are ignored and use continues, the symptoms may very well become irreversible.
The Stanozolol hormone is well known for reducing HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and increasing LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). If you already suffer from high cholesterol you should not use Stanozolol. If you are healthy enough for use, it will be imperative that you keep an eye on your cholesterol. In order to promote healthy levels it is also recommended that your diet be rich in omega fatty acids. Supplementing daily with fish oils is recommended, as is limiting saturated fats and simple sugars.
Stanozolol is significantly suppressive to natural testosterone production. It will not completely suppress production but it will put the individual into a low testosterone state if exogenous testosterone is not applied. All men who supplement with the Stanozolol hormone can easily avoid a low testosterone condition if they simultaneously supplement with some form of exogenous testosterone, such as Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate or Testosterone Propionate. Women will not need exogenous testosterone therapy.
Once all steroid use comes to an end, natural testosterone production will begin again on its own. However, it will take quite some time for your levels to return to normal. For this reason, most men are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan post anabolic steroid use.
Stanozolol is a hepatotoxic anabolic steroid, far more than Oxandrolone on a per milligram basis, but it appears to be less hepatotoxic on a per milligram basis than steroids like Methandrostenolone.
If you are healthy enough for use, total use should be limited to 6-8 weeks. During use, it is also important that you avoid all excess alcohol consumption. Excess consumption alone is very stressful to the liver and when combined with Stanozolol, it only enhances the liver stress. Beyond alcohol, avoiding all over the counter medications where possible is advised.
