Stanozolol Functions & Traits: Stanozolol is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic androgenic steroid, or more specifically a structurally altered form. Stanozolol is the DHT hormone with two structural changes that give us the Stanozolol compound. The first alteration is the introduction of an attached pyrazol group at the A-ring of the hormone replacing the 3-keto group. This modification officially classifies Stanozolol as a heterocyclic steroid. The hormone also carries an added methyl group in order to protect hormone after administration. This structural change takes place at the 17th carbon position officially classifying Stanozolol as a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) anabolic steroid.

However, it could be used in an effort to enhance the activity of the other steroids being used due to the strong SHBG reduction it will provide but this is generally not recommended.

For the male athlete, this will not be during the bulking phase.

In a therapeutic setting, standard male oral Stanozolol doses normally fall in the 2mg range around three times per day. Females are normally given 4mg per day or two 2mg doses and if virilization symptoms do not occur it is often increased to 6mg per day. When injectable Stanozolol is prescribed, it is normally given at a dose of 50mg every 2-3 weeks for both male and female patients.
In performance circles, standard male Stanozolol doses will normally fall in the 25-50mg range. 25mg per day of oral Stanozolol or 50mg every other day of injectable Stanozolol is very commonplace. Such doses are enough to produce solid results in any man and should be very controllable in terms of side effects. For those who are more bodybuilding minded, 50mg per day of either form is very common with some taking the dose as high as 100mg per day. These high end doses are normally not recommended outside of competitive bodybuilding circles, thereís no need for them. However, if truly lean, contest lean a 7-10 day run at a high end dose leading up to the show could produce some nice finishing touches. However, due to the hepatotoxic nature and potential cholesterol issues, high end doses should for no reason last more than 7-10 days. Total use should fall in the 6-8 week range.
