The injection form of stanozolol is a water based injectable steroid that is a derivative of DHT. Both oral and injectable forms are c17-alfa-alkylated chemicals. This of course makes the injectable form moderately liver toxic and the oral form liver toxic in high dosages. Before going on let me make it clear that the injectable form is the same as the oral. For this reason the injectable form has frequently been used as an oral also. Why would anyone have done that? Well, all c17-alfa-alkylated AAS, when passing through the liver for deactivation, cause a distinct elevation in IGF-1 production. (Please see IGF-1). This is why 30-mg of Dianabol orals daily (210-mg weekly total) has been revered as more effective for mass and strength gains than 400-mg of testosterone enanthate. The injectable stanozolol has been much cheaper than oral stanozolol, so some athletes opted to utilize it as an oral.
Stanozolol is a high anabolic /moderate androgenic that causes a significant elevation in protein synthesis and an improved nitrogen retention. Since it does not aromatize to estrogen, water retention, gyno, and female pattern fat deposits do not occur.
A high protein diet of 1.5-2-g of protein per LB of bodyweight daily was necessary to obtain the best results. This was not noted as a steroid for rapid weight gains but was commonly affirmed as ideal for a continuous slow gain in very high quality lean muscle mass that was well retained after discontinuance. Many who compete utilized Winstrol off-season with testosterone in a Max Androgen Phase for its anabolic value.
Many used Winstrol (stanozolol) as a pre-contest drug because it provided a continuously harder appearance. When 50-100mg every 1-2 days was stacked with 76-mg of Parabolan every 2-3 days, the results were quite impressive. Many also added Masteron, Equipoise, or Testosterone Propionate/ Testosterone Suspension with the addition of anti-estrogens for water retention and aromatization control.
Women often reported use of Winstrol Depot. “Usually” those who reported 25mg 2-3 times weekly or a single weekly 50-mg injection use reported no virilization effects. (I have known many women who have utilized 50-100mg daily of this drug) Stacked with Oxandrolone and/or Durabolin, women achieved excellent quality lean mass gains.
Winstrol tabs were often thought to be a better choice at a dosage of 10-20-mg daily, or about 1/4 -1/2ml of the injectable taken orally due to results realized. The method often employed for the injection product used as an oral was to mix 1ml of Stanozolol with 9 ml of water. Each ml=5-mg. (Duh!) Since Stanozolol produced a surprising increase in strength, it has been used as a part of a mass cycle as well. Novices and older males made very impressive “second cycle” gains stacking 50mg of Stanozolol every other day with 50-100mg of Primobolan Depot every 2-3 days, or with 200-400mg of Deca-Durabolin weekly. Many hard-core males reported serious strength and mass gains using 50-100mg stanozolol with 50-100mg Testosterone Suspension daily. This was a fairly high weekly dosage and was hopefully considered for advanced athletes.if at all.
Winstrol is another AAS that was commonly used in a site-injection protocol for lagging body parts.
