There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.
Of course some will always want more and while we advise you stick with just testosterone there are additions that can be made safely. One option would be to stack Dianabol with your testosterone the first 4-6 weeks of the testosterone cycle. Another option would be to stack Winstrol the last 6 weeks of the cycle and depending on your goals this will determine which one of these steroids you choose. It is however not recommended that you choose both as both are highly liver toxic and both could bring too much undue stress to the liver. Sample outlines of such beginner steroid cycles might look like this:
