“…his idea is one many people not familiar with roids share…”[/quote]
EXACTLY the point.
Those who ARE familiar with AAS know that it is not a good idea - the gains that are possible are so minute, they are not worth the suppression (IMO).
Those who dont know anything about AAS use (there is nothing wrong with that - until you want to use and become arrogant in your ignorange) DO tend to go for non-aromatising AAS, the reason is the old information that it is just estrogen that caused the shutdown of the HPTA - also the fact that many believe it is just estrogen that causes sides and so if a non-aromatising AAS is used, no ancillaries are needed. This is also incorrect.
A winstrol only cycle will need some sort of estrogen ‘replacement’ as levels are likely to fall too low with its mild AI effects and its non-binding to aromatase… this will lead to a lowered sex drive among other negative feelings - so a SERM may be of use. PLUS one will need a PCT regime for the weeks after the cycle to help recover the HPTA.
If ancillaries such as the ones are needed - then why not use a 6 week cycle of 350mg/wk Test Prop… MORE muscle will be kept during a harsh diet such as the ‘Velocity Diet’, not much water will be gained with correct use of an AI and daily injects, and finally a SERM PCT for the same duration will be just as effective in restoring the HPTA.
As for doping in sport argument… sure Ben Johnson was caught with Stanazolol in his blood, however this doesnt mean it is the best drug for the job (although not bad for a tested, light and fast athlete) - look at Linford Christie - positive for Nandrolone! This is hardly the actions of someone who knows it will be detectable upto 18months later is it?! Or Dwain Chambers with Tetrahydrogestrinone - that will have been an uncomfortable cycle due to the fact it was an estrogen based drug - similar to running deca alone i would have expected.
These aren’t the actions of men who: Know what drug to take from real, educated experience - only what they were told to take by others… and in the case of Christie, very bad advice indeed.
Chambers while getting excellent advice on using the clear - it wouldnt have been a comfortable cycle - one that was bourne out of necessity due to stringent drug testing.
What other reason is there for the OP to use Stanazolol than bad advice given down the line somewhere?
Still it wont kill you and you will get better results than if you took nothing - just not the best you could hope for.
PS: Trust me, one cycle of Test - even at 700mg/wk wont turn you into a [quote]“steroid juicing freak”[/quote] sadly it is a little harder than that.
