Winstrol is for Cutting?


#1

Why does Winstrol often get recommended as a cutting agent? Is it just because it's not good for bulking cycles, due to potential joint pain?

Thanks.

It can be used in any cycle bulk or cut. Your diet and calorie intake will determine if you gain or lose weight.

I've been pretty lucky in that Winstrol has never made my joints hurt. Also on of the reasons it's used in a cutting cycle is its short half-life and effectiveness as an anti-catabolic agent.

But realistically, my favorite use of Winstrol is its ability to lower SHBG, which makes it popular for both bulking and cutting cycles.
