Winstrol is a very powerful steroid that provides fast results. I personally like Winstrol a lot.
Winstrol has a diuretic effect to it which can make you look harder, even within just the first few days of using it!
Winstrol or “Winny” has been around for quite awhile now and it’s available in tablets or injectable form.
Winstrol (Stanozolol) is most commonly used in cutting cycles.
Winstrol is most commonly dosed at 50 mg/day and occasionally used as high as 100 mg/day.
I only used 100 mg/day of it the last 2 weeks before a competition once, but used 50 mg/day the first 4 weeks of it.
I’ve found that steroid cycles with Winstrol need to be no longer than 6-8 weeks because it can wreak havoc on your cholesterol levels.
Winstrol Side Effects
You may notice that you’ll urinate more when on Winstrol. It’s important to keep taking in water to replenish yourself and also to help protect your joints.
Your joints can often ache on Winstrol because of this side effect.
Winny can also make some people shed on the hairline a bit, but it never did me bad and I’m even predisposed to a receding hairline.
My blood work showed my cholesterol at 250 (which is fairly high) about a week after discontinuing the cycle (1 week post contest).
My cholesterol levels came back down to normal by the next blood panel which was 12 weeks later, but I’m suspecting they were back in normal range within 4-6 weeks post cycle.
As an injectable it comes as either a milky white water based steroid or an oil-based Winstrol.
Personally I think oil-based Winstrol kicks ass! (although usually a little more $$$ than the water based version.)
Liquid Winstrol can also be drank since it’s a 17-C alkaloid (meaning it’s put together the same way as the tablet form, and able to be absorbed by the body through the stomach).
Now, why would you want to drink injectable Winstrol? Well, sometimes Winny shots hurt like a motherfucker and Winstrol is responsible for a lot of infections from injections.
That is the one drawback of Winstrol, the water based versions can often sting for a few days because there are particles in there that can get stuck in the muscle tissue. But not all brands of Winny are like this.
How do you inject Winstrol?
Easy, you use 1/2″ insulin syringes that are backloaded (meaning you’ve pulled out the plunger and loaded them from the back with a larger draw-up needle).
Insulin pins can make for less scar tissue from injections, better convenience (able to go to more injection sites) and hold exactly 1 ml (or 50 mg of liquid Winstrol).
Example Winstrol Cycle (for cutting)
Winstrol Cycle Weeks 1 – 12
- 300 mg/week of Testosterone Propionate
- 1 serving a day of Joyful joints by Vital Labs (to keep joint pain down on Winny)
- 1 serving a day of a fat loss supplement
Winstrol Cycle Weeks: 7 – 12
- 50 mg/day of Winstol
Winstrol Post Cycle Therapy
Begin HCG the day after your cycle ends.
- Use HCG at 2 separate shots/week of 1250 iu each (2500 iu/week total) for 2 weeks in a row (so 5,000 iu total)
- 1 mg per day of Arimadex (begin right away after cycle)
- 50mg/day of Clomid for 20 days (begin Clomid 10 days post cycle, and run for 20 days straight)

Hopefully this article gives you a little info on Winstrol and my take on Winny.
Winny gets an A+ from me when used wisely and in short durations and not abused.

JD , I found the cycle Iam gonna do and the gear ,Iam already on trt at 200mg a week and I decided to do anavar for the first time at 30 mg a day for 12 weeks after reading your book and it sounds like anavar is what I want to do ,do I need to include anything else with this cycle before I order my gear like arimidex .thanks Chad
if all you’re going to use is 200mg/wk test with 30mg of anavar, it’s highly unlikely you’d NEED arimadex, but if it gives you peace of mind then you can run a minimal amount during cycle, such as 1/2mg 2-3x/wk. If anything it’ll keep you dryer looking, but would you NEED IT? Probably not, it’s highly unlikely you’d have any aromazation issues on just 200mg/wk unless you are VERY VERY gyno prone.
Thanks JD .
Hi you probably get this a lot but i have 1 week left of my firts cycle i inject once a week with supertest 500 and nandroject 300 and did the last 5 dianabol 10 mg a week ago so here’s what i want to know i want to know can i start wright after i finish with my last cycle can i start just after and if so what should i get
sure, its all explained in my ebook Straight from the Underground, thanks for reading -JD
Oh and also ,can I take red burner with that cycle to , I ordered that yesterday .thanks Chad
JD, I have a few questions. I’m was about to start my first ever cutting cycle (after my first bulking cycle and PCT) and this was what was recommended to me:
Month 1 – Take 5 winstrol pills daily, 5 days a week. Training days are best
Month 2 – Take 5 winstrol pills daily, 5 days a week. Add Masteron at 1ml injection every other day
Month 3 – Take 5 winstrol pills daily, 5 days a week. Add Trenbolone at 1ml injection every other day
Month 4 – Start HCG injections at 2.5ml (2500 IU) twice a week for 2 weeks. Start 2 weeks after your last steroid injection.
I have all of the required materials but your cycle seems so much simpler. As for Test right now I have quite a large supply of Sustanon and I also have a bunch of Primobolan.
Do you think the cycle I have been suggested is any good? Would you recommend I use the Sustanon for the Test in your cycle? Also, would you swap out anything for the Primo? To be honest, I’m nervous about the Trenbolone…everything I’ve read sounds frightening.
By the way, thank you for your site; all of your replies and the resources you provide. Of all of the sites on the web, yours is the most thorough and honest, Much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
You definitely want to run the test with the cycle. On the winstrol, I wouldn’t stay on it for 3 months myself because it’s harsh on cholesterol, I’d limit it to 8 weeks. Primo is a good compound to use but you have to understand the way it works, it’s not going to give massive gains but better at recomping. Thanks for following the site!!- JD
Thanks JD. I’ve read a bunch about how the Primo works…sounds like interesting stuff. Would it be OK to replace the Tren in the above-mentioned cycle with it? I just have lots of reservations about Tren…
Hey JD, sorry one more question (yeah, I’m a newbie). On the above mentioned cycle, how much Arimidex should I take with the Sustanon? Thx.
I almost always suggest 1/2mg 3x/wk for most low to moderate dosed cycles
yea you could do that. Tren definitely works and is one of your best bangs for the buck but doesn’t come without it’s fair share of sides. I haven’t used it in some years now, I prefer primo myself
I am a beginner. i am thinking of starting winstrol ( 50 mg / shot, twice in a week) and cut mix 150( twice in a week). wanted your advice.
Whats the cut mix consist of? It’s prop, tren, and masteron right?
Can you use low dose winstrol to lower shbg, say 5mg per day long term?
I don’t know the answer to this but I wouldn’t use any amount of winstrol long term myself
What if any does inj. Winny have a taste to it? Thanks for your time it’s greatly appreciated! Just curious , I got a 20 ml vial 100mgs/ml of FOLGEN INTERNATIONAL, also got 20ml vial of tren A 200mgs/ml , it says it’s made in Germany but Al writing is in Spanish my guess made in Mexico but the tren is g2g just hoping the Winny is 2.
Tastes chemical like. Yes, you can drink it
I read your comments earlier about using insulin syringes to inject the water based or oil based Winstrol. I assume these are going intra-muscular correct? Shoulder okay? Do both the water and oil need to be back loaded? Thanks so much.
Yes, and yes
I am stacking liquid oral Winnie with injections of Deca. How often should I take each one. I have never done this before and can’t find anywhere what is the best way to stack these two. Thanks
see Straight from the Underground ebook, thanks-JD
Hey JD!! Is it ok to drink the winstrol instead of having to inject it? Because it hurts like bi**h!!
Yes, it’s a 17 alkaloid and you can drink it. Fuck injecting water based winny, most infections come from that garbage. Only way I would ever inject it again was if I had oil based winny
Is test a must when running winny? Cycle my dude set me up with is oil based winny injection EOD, clen and hcg every 5 days. Does this sound wrong to anyone?
Yes and no. It’s necessary to feel better on cycle but it’s not saying you cannot get results without it
Can I inject winstrol into my tummy with an insulin needle and where exactly.
No, I wouldn’t. But it’s a 17 alkyloid and u can drink it. Seriously, just measure out dose and swallow it, I’m serious
I ordered your ebook but still have a few questions. I have plenty of Sustanon 300 available could only get my hands on 15 ampules of Win 50mg/ml. Is that enough winstrol to even consider trying to cycle in? I’m starting week 5 of a 300mg a week Sustanon cycle. Also have plenty of Tren as well…..but honestly a little apprehensive as this is first time I’ve ever done any of this. Thoughts…..suggestions? Awesome article BTW.
yes, 3 ampules a week (Mon/Wed/Fri) x last 5 wks of a cycle
I have a u100 needle. How much do I fill of winny if 3/10s is a ML. Is it 3 full 30 units?
I’m sorry, you totally lost me there
What does liquid ( oral ) winstrol meant to taste like…
