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.
There are two Winstrol side-effects that largely surround individual genetics more so than anything else, and largely occur due to the steroids DHT nature; we're referring to hair-loss and acne. Men who are predisposed to male-pattern baldness risk losing their hair with supplementation of the hormone; of course, you were going to lose your hair anyway; the Winstrol simply sped it up. For men who are not predisposed, you will not lose the first hair on your head. In many ways, the same can be said of acne; men who are more sensitive to acne will be the first to breakout. In most cases, this will occur on the back and shoulders, but all hope is not lost. If you keep your skin clean, and ensure your product is clean as well you'll improve your odds. Of course, if you're not all that sensitive to acne it's doubtful you have anything to worry about.
