For performance athletes, standard doses for men range between 25 and 50 milligrams a day. The most common dose is 25 milligrams taken orally or 50 milligrams injected. Such doses will produce solid results while allowing for control of side effects. In bodybuilders, the most common dose is 50 milligrams a day, with some going as high as 100 milligrams. Such high doses are not normally suggested outside of fitness models and bodybuilders, however, as side effects can become uncontrollable. If you are lean with body fat less than 10 percent , then these high dosages can produce an excellent physique for a show or competition. Do not take these high doses for more than seven to 10 days, however, because of the likelihood of cardiovascular and hepatotoxic side effects. Total use of Winstrol should not exceed two months , and then you should take a two-month break from this drug.
The most common side effect is dry joints aka your joints are painful, so you need to take some joint supplements. Winstrol is usually complimented well by a combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, calcium and collagen/vitamin C. If you take joint support formulas with those ingredients, you should remedy most of your joint problems. The next issue is liver problems, which are common for all oral steroids (even injectable to some degree); therefore, you should take N2Guard to make sure your liver is protected. N2Guard does a great job at protecting your liver, kidneys, heart and overall health during a winstrol cycle.
The normal dosage for men is between 30-70 mg per day for the tablets and 25-50 mg per day for the injectable version of Winstrol. Winstrol is often combined with other steroids depending on what the personal goals of the athlete are. To gain muscle mass (bulk up), Winstrol is best combined with a stronger androgen such as testosterone. This will give the cycle a good anabolic effect while minimizing estrogenic activity. This results in excellent increases in lean muscle mass, as opposed to the more common bulking cycle which greatly increases muscle mass while also increasing water retention and some gains in fat. To lose fat (cut up), Winstrol is best combined with a non-aromatizing androgen such as trenbolone or Halotestin. This combination can create a strongly defined, hard look. This is a very attractive look sought out by many bodybuilders.
