Winstrol is a mild anabolic steroid with some anabolic properties. It is not capable of converting into estrogen, so an anti-estrogen is not necessary. This makes Winstrol a great steroid to use during cutting cycles, when water and fat retention are a major concern. Winstrol is often combined with other steroids depending on the desired result. For bulking purposes, a stronger androgen like testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol is usually added. Here Stanozolol will balance out the cycle a bit, giving us good anabolic effect with lower overall estrogenic activity than if taking such steroids alone. The result should be a considerable gain in new muscle mass, with a more comfortable level of water and fat retention.
