Stanozolol is available in both an oral and injectable format, and it sits on the third-place pedestal among the top 3 anabolic steroids most widely used and most popular among bodybuilders and athletes. A unique function that Stanozolol exhibits is its ability to significantly lower SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) levels in the body, allowing freer Testosterone and other anabolic hormones to be able to exert anabolic activity in muscle tissues. It exhibits exceptional capability and a high degree of stimulating and facilitating protein synthesis and has also been observed to possess a capability of boosting collagen synthesis in the body. An important fact that must be reminded to the reader is the fact that both the injectable and oral preparations of Stanozolol possess the exact same chemical structure. This is unlike nearly all other anabolic steroids.
Stanozolol Cycles and Uses
Stanozolol cycles are normally intended for the purpose of fat loss, cutting, and pre-contest preparation where the end goal is to achieve very low body fat levels and a high level of definition in the physique. There are those who claim it can also be utilized for bulking, mass, and strength gaining, but there are other anabolic steroids that are generally cheaper and better suited for these purposes than Stanozolol. It is generally accepted that Stanozolol cycles should be reserved for cutting and fat loss.
As such, Stanozolol cycles normally include a base compound of similar use, normally something such as Testosterone Propionate for an 8 – 10 week cycle. Intermediate and advanced Stanozolol cycles can also involve three compounds in total, normally a stack such as Testosterone Propionate, Trenbolone Acetate, and Stanozolol (either the oral or injectable preparation will do).
It is important to also note that because of the hepatotoxicity differences between the oral and injectable Stanozolol preparations, it is possible to run Stanozolol cycles longer with the injectable than the oral (8 – 10 weeks for the injectable and 6 – 8 weeks for the oral respectively).
Stanozolol Dosages and Administration
Stanozolol is a very versatile anabolic steroid, and its dosages vary extensively (especially between the oral and injectable variants).
Stanozolol dosages in the medical arena originally called for a 6mg per day dosage, ideally split up throughout the day (e.g. a 2mg tablet administered 3 times per day). The injectable Stanozolol as a medicine was typically prescribed at a dosage of 50mg only once every two to three weeks. However, for the purposes of athletics and performance enhancement, these medical dosages and frequencies for Stanozolol do not help at all.
For athletics, physique, and strength, general Stanozolol dosages range (with the injectable) around 50 – 100mg administered every other day, equating to around 200 – 400mg per week. In terms of oral Stanozolol, this average to around 60mg per day, and lower dosages of Stanozolol (such as 25 – 50mg per day) are said to work well for all groups of users and athletes. Because Stanozolol is not an incredibly strong anabolic steroid meant for bulking and mass gaining, there is no need to rise dosages to extreme or dangerous levels, and for the purposes of aiding definition and fat loss, the aforementioned dosages here are good ranges.
For females, 5 – 10mg per day of the oral preparation is known to be pretty common among female bodybuilders and athletes that want to avoid any risk of virilization or other side effects. Although injectable Stanozolol is not very common among female athletes and bodybuilders, 15mg injected every other day (for an approximate total of 60mg per week) is a good recommendation.
This is the oral tablet variant.
