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.
It is often said injectable Winstrol is far more powerful than its oral counterpart, and based on the increased enhancement of nitrogen retention this would support such a belief; however, it's not as cut and dry as you might think. Yes, injecting Stanozolol will increase nitrogen retention beyond what the oral tablet can; however, this increased enhancement is not that significant over the oral form; you can truly obtain the same results with either one. Another myth that often plagues injectable Winstrol surrounds its structural nature, most understand the oral tablet is a C17-aa steroid and assume the injectable form does not carry this hepatotoxic nature; they would be incorrect. Injectable Winstrol is one of the few injectable steroids that is a C17-aa anabolic steroid, and while its hepatotoxic nature is not quite as strong as the oral tablet it is still rather high; in-fact, both forms of Winstrol are some of the most hepatotoxic steroids on the market.
The oral use of stanozolol can also have a profound impact on levels of SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin). This is a characteristic of all anabolic/androgenic steroids, however its potency and form of administration make Winstrol particularly noteworthy in this regard. Since plasma binding proteins such as SHBG act to temporarily constrain steroid hormones from exerting activity, this effect would provide a greater percentage of free (unbound) steroid hormone in the body. This may amount to an effective mechanism in which stanozolol could increase the potency of a concurrently used steroid. To further this purpose one could also addition Proviron, which has an extremely high affinity for SHBG. This affinity may cause Proviron to displace other weaker substrates for SHBG (such as testosterone), another mechanism in which the free hormone level may be increased. Adding Winstrol and Proviron to your next testosterone cycle may therefore prove very useful,, markedly enhancing the free state of this potent muscle building androgen.
