For the majority of athletes who supplement with the Stanozolol hormone they are not doing so for a visual affect but rather one that is functional. In this case their cycles will generally be of a milder nature and it is not uncommon for Stanozolol to be the only hormone used; common plans are often 50mg every other day to every day depending on the athlete. However, such use will suppress natural testosterone production to a degree and for this reason many athletes are urged to supplement with some form of exogenous testosterone. As many athletes are worried about testing they may find Testosterone-suspension at a dose of 25mg-50mg every day to suffice along with their Winstrol. Yes, you can still fail a test but the detection time of Testosterone-Suspension and Oral Winstrol tablets is rather short:
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.
Winstrol is hepatotoxic, and because of this, it should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible cycle. What’s more, you should consider using a supplement designed to provide some additional protection. Milk thistle is a highly recommended option; studies suggest it can provide an effective layer of protection when it is used for the entire length of your cycle. There are some other supplements on the market, such as Liver Care, which are blends of natural ingredients that have been shown to work together to prevent liver toxicity.
