Winstrol is generally not preferred for building mass as it is highly anabolic and very slightly androgenic, an oral Steroid such as Dianabol is usually a better choice for people wanting to bulk up. Due to its ability to dramatically lower SHBG it can be used in a bulking cycle as a means to make other hormones more efficient, increase free testosterone and even solidify gains to a stronger degree but most of the people will find other steroids to be far more beneficial than winstrol in the long run. However some people are very sensitive to side effects of certain Steroids such as Dianabol, and would rather use Winstrol in a bulking cycle, while the weight gain wont be as dramatic as with Dianabol, with a proper high calorie diet, you can still see good results.
Another positive effect of deca-durabolin was reported by many bodybuilders who prior using this drug experienced pains in joints but once using it they started to enjoy training with no pain and that is attributed to deca’s ability to store more water in connective tissues.
However there are some moments which must be known by you before you start using nandrolone decanoate , it has a very strong effect on decreasing your sexual drive and it can cause gyno in some individuals. So have Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) on hand in case you feel gyno symptoms.
In most cases a good Winstrol cycle will run for approximately 6-8 weeks at a dosing of 50mg every day. Some will find 50mg every other day to be all they need but as this anabolic steroid has a very short half-life, especially in tablet form daily administration is generally best. 50mg per day appears to be perfect for most any man regardless of his level of experience and we do not recommend going beyond the 8 week mark as this steroid is rather liver toxic. Winstrol is one of the more hepatic anabolic steroids we will ever use but thankfully if used responsibly the liver will return to normal values very quickly after use has been discontinued. The only exception we might make regarding the dose of a Winstrol cycle is for the competitive bodybuilder towards the very end of his contest prep cycle. Many bodybuilders find 100mg per day the last 10-14 days before a show to be very useful in-terms of really hardening them up before they step on stage; however, 14 days is the maximum recommended duration for such a dose due to the toxicity of this steroid.
