In steroid use, stacking refers to using two or three different drugs or substances in order to increase the effectiveness of anabolic steroids. Among anabolic steroids, Winstrol - the commercial name for the chemical known as Stanozolol - is one of the most popular for use in stacking. When used in conjunction with other substances, Winstrol's effectiveness can be increased dramatically and it can provide even more prominent benefits than when used alone. In fact, it is almost completely necessary to stack Winstrol with other substances as certain effects need to be counteracted.
How Winstrol Is Used In Anabolic Androgenic Steroid Cycles
In AAS (anabolic androgenic steroid) cycles, Winstrol is most commonly and effectively used during cutting cycles. These are the periods of time between when a body is bulked up through workouts, training and the use of other types of steroids. Winstrol is beneficial in this regard because it works to cut excess fat and is considered to have diuretic qualities. As such, it helps keep the body from retaining a great deal of water - a huge benefit when trying to cut the body as much as possible during these cycles.
Common advice is that Winstrol is most effective in 50 milligram per day doses. Winstrol comes in tablets, or in injected form known as Winstrol Depot. With the tablets, then, five per day would allow one to reach the 50 milligram point. With Winstrol Depot, a single daily injection at the same approximate time would satisfy this dosage in most cases. Figuring out how to work the right dosage of Winstrol is a huge part of stacking it effectively with other substances.
While Winstrol is most commonly and preferably used in cutting stacks, it is occasionally used in mass building stacks as well. In this case, a normal combination would be Winstrol, Deca and Nilevar. The various properties of these substances work well in conjunction with one another, and can have a very positive effect on bodybuilding and bulking up during a mass cycle. There is no hard and fast rule regarding this, though; there is a lot of advice online and between other bodybuilders, and many people experiment with different types of stack combinations.
In cutting stacks, Winstrol is usually combined with Boldenone, Masteron and trenbolone forms of steroids, near the end of such a cycle. The various properties of these substances effectively counteract and balance out those of the others, allowing a person to enjoy the maximum possible effect in cutting down their fat and excess weight. Over time, most bodybuilders discover specific combinations that work best for them; there is not single way that universally works for everyone.
Stacking Winstrol does not require an anti estrogen, since the side effects of Winstrol are not prone to aromatize. However, if it is going to be used for a longer amount of time, Winstrol should probably be counteracted by stacking it with an anti-hypertensive drug to negate the effects on a person's blood pressure. This is the safest way to use Winstrol and stack it for maximum effect. As noted previously, though, each individual’s results may vary considerably in terms of stacking Winstrol.
