In the anabolic world there is a host of drugs but of all the steroids available perhaps none carries the level of fame as does Winstrol. It's a drug known by many who've never trained or even thought about competing in any genre of sports and this fame has in many cases led to infamy. For those who are part of the anabolic world Winstrol is nothing new; for over four decades it has been used for sports enhancing purposes but for the masses it is often a drug that stands out quite a bit.
Winstrol or Stanozolol as it is known made world renowned news in 1988 when Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson beat the American golden boy Carl Lewis at that year’s Olympic Games. It was the drug use by Ben Johnson that would finally push through the U.S. congress the initial Steroid Control Act in 1990 and since that time the restrictions on anabolics in sports has been nothing short of a death grip. Winstrol enjoyed even more public press in during the witch hunt placed upon major league baseball; several major league players were accused of caught using the drug; most notably Rafael Palmeiro and Roger Clemens.
There's no question; the use of Winstrol can produce very good gains in both strength and speed and that is one of the number one reasons it is used by many athletes but unlike many anabolic steroids that can bring about a large increase in mass, It does not provide a high level of this effect. This is one of the reasons many professional athletes outside of the bodybuilding realm choose to use Winstrol in order to avoid uspicion. Further, Winstrol is only detectable for approximately ten days and even if tests are administered during that ten day period it is one of the easier tests to beat.
Make no mistake, Winstrol is not only used by those in the baseball or track and field world; it is a long standing favorite of many bodybuilders. Even though it doesn't possess the incredible mass building qualities of many other anabolic steroids it definitely serves a purpose. It can be a great addition to a bodybuilders contest preparations due to its hardening effects. Further, it is also commonly used by many female physique competitors due to it being far less androgenic than many other anabolic steroids. No matter who's using Winstrol be they in the physique world, baseball, track and field or in mixed martial arts where it is commonly found, Winstrol to this day remains a favorite among the millions of anabolic steroid users.
