It gives amazing gains on its own and can be stacked with other drugs for better results. It does not aromatize and so the negative side effects such as gynocomastia (large breasts in men), water retention and fat deposition do not occur with this drug. Both tablets and injections of Stanozolol are available in the market.
Stanozolol as a Cutting Agent
Stanozolol has all the required properties which make it an ideal cutting agent. During the cutting phase, the body builder requires a steroid which will cut down the unwanted fat in the body without harming the muscles gained. With the properties of lipolysis (fat burning) and muscle anti catabolism, it easily achieves this. It increases the temperature of the body thereby burning the fat stored and its ability to maintain the muscles and prevent them from breaking down does not affect the muscle gain. Water retention is one serious side effect of steroids which hampers the muscles. As Stanozolol is largely anabolic in nature, water retention does not occur with its use. These qualities make it perfectly suited for cutting phases.
Stanozolol for Enhanced Performance
Stanozolol also has the ability of increasing the number of red blood cells in the body. A greater number of red blood cells increase the oxygenated blood quantity in the body giving the person more stamina and increasing the level of endurance as well. Stamina is the main requirement for extensive workouts which are necessary for better performance and better muscle growth. It gives this stamina; it also helps the body recover from the stress of the exercises. Enhanced stamina will enable the user to perform better during competitions.
