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.
Oral and injectable steroids both have their benefits. Primarily, oral steroids offer huge gains in short periods, and injectable steroids offer smaller, higher quality gains over longer periods of time. Most of the bodybuilders and athletes who utilize anabolic steroids will actually use both during a cycle. They will start out with one of the oral steroids as a “kick-start” for their gains, then switch over to an injectable before the side effects become too much to handle. This way, they can enjoy quick gains from the start, then turn them into lean muscle without much water retention throughout the rest of the cycle.
Generally speaking 10mg-20mg is a fine dosing to serve any female purpose with 20mg per day being as far as most will want to go. While it is a mild steroid virilization probability can increase a fair amount when this dosing level is surpassed. Most women are highly advised to begin with 10mg per day and often this is all the Anavar they will ever need. If more is needed to achieve the desired result make sure you can handle the lower dose first before increasing it and if you do increase it you should use extreme caution and pay close attention to your body as to ensure virilization does not occur. In most cases 6 weeks of use will prove to be just about perfect with 8 weeks being about as long as most will want to go. If you need or desire more time it is advised you discontinue use for 4-6 weeks before beginning another course.
