The dosage used is important in determining the level of benefit received. Anabolic steroids tend to be most efficient at promoting muscle gains when taken at a moderately above therapeutic dosage level. Below this (therapeutic), potential anabolic benefits are often counterbalanced, at least to some extent, by the suppression of endogenous testosterone. At very high doses, smaller incremental gains are noticed. In the case of testosterone enanthate or cypionate, for example, a dosage of 100 mg per week is considered therapeutic, and is generally insufficient for noticing strong anabolic benefits. When the dosage is in the 300-600 mg per week range, however, the drug is highly efficient at supporting muscle growth. Above this range, a greater level of muscle gain may be noticed, but the amount will be small in comparison to the dosage increase. Below are some commonly used dosages for the steroids listed earlier. Avoid taking the higher end of the dosage range during your first couple of cycles. You will have excellent results from lower dosages during your first few cycles. Lower dosages are also less likely to cause excessive side-effects and give you the opportunity to learn how your body reacts to steroid usage.
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.
At the end of the day, every individual should ask themselves why they would make the decision to run doses of Testosterone that promote higher levels of aromatization when it is stacked with an anabolic steroid in which the idea is to avoid Estrogenic side effects that result from aromatization. Winstrol does not aromatize, and therefore utilizing higher Testosterone doses would defeat the purpose. Essentially it does not seem logical, unless aromatization is minimized through the use of TRT doses of Testosterone or an aromatase inhibitor is used. The use of TRT doses of Testosterone negates the need for an aromatase inhibitor , which would be far more favorable to some individuals.
