Stacking anabolic steroids during cutting cycles is nothing new. People do it for many different reasons, whether they want to enjoy a synergistic effect between the products or simply save a few pennies per dose. If you want to try them combined in a cutting cycle, the following information is for you.
A Little About The Two
They are both very popular cutting steroids. They help athletes maintain their strength and stamina while they cut calories and burn fat, and they also help athletes hold on to their gains during cutting cycles. Although you can find Winstrol as an injectable, you will likely find both of these steroids in tablet form. Remember that Anavar will cost significantly more than Winstrol dose-for-dose, but it provides amazing results that are difficult to achieve otherwise.
Beware of Liver Damage and High Cholesterol
Both are hepatotoxic, which means that they can (and will) cause liver damage that worsens over time. The best way to combat this is to use the lowest dose that provides therapeutic benefit and to take that dose for the shortest period of time possible. If you have had issues with your liver in the past, if you regularly consume alcohol, or if you take Tylenol or medications containing Tylenol regularly, then you should never use combined since the risk of liver damage increases exponentially. What’s more, studies show that using both products together vastly increases cholesterol, so be sure to use omega-3s and keep an eye on your levels.
How to Stack
First of all, remember that if you are going to stack combined, you need to use a lower-than-average dose of each one. For the most part, you can use 50mg per day of each one over a period of about six weeks, but you should never exceed this amount. Some people cannot tolerate these doses together, and if you are one of them, you should reduce it. Keep the Anavar at 50mg per day, but drop the Winstrol back to 25mg per day. Anavar is much milder than Winstrol and tends to produce fewer side effects.
Because both are so synergistic, there may be some users who find they simply cannot tolerate the two together. Though doses can be reduced to tolerable levels, there comes a point where there is little to no benefit, even during a cutting cycle. If you find that you need to lower your doses of Anavar below 30mg per day or your dose of Winstrol below 12.75 mg per day, you may not experience any true benefits of either steroid. In this case, you would be better off using one or the other rather than both.
Adding Winstrol to Save Money
Thousands of bodybuilders around the world attempt to add Winstrol to their Anavar cycles to save money. Anavar is one of the best cutting steroids out there, but it is also one of the most expensive. Because of this, people go to great lengths to save money. There is some evidence to suggest that taking 25mg a day of Anavar along with 50mg a day of Winstrol can produce results that are better than taking Winstrol alone; however, bodybuilders in forums claim that 80mg per day is the only way to get your money’s worth when it comes to Anavar. While it may cost more, using alone at a higher dose may be more effective to your goals.
Both for Women?
While both considered safe for women when used responsibly, there is some debate over the use of an stack. Women are at risk for virilization when they use anabolic steroids, even at very low doses for very short periods of time. Often, women will assume a bit of risk to enhance their physiques, and they will monitor themselves for side effects very carefully. Anavar alone is likely the most well-received steroid for women, and Winstrol, while more potent in the female body, is also quite safe at low doses. However, when the two are combined, problems may arise. both are synergistic, which means they amplify each other’s benefits substantially. Men can simply drop their doses, but because women take so little to start, it may be difficult for them to measure the proper dosage to complete a cycle. Aside from this, the same risks apply when it comes to liver damage, but because women take far less than men, this risk is reduced somewhat. The chart below shows differences in daily doses between men and women for an cycle. In each column, the dose for men is to the left of the slash while the dose for women is on the right.
Timeframe in Weeks Anavar Dose
Of course, for women, anabolic steroids are almost always used for bulking because they work so well to build muscle in the female body. An Anavar cycle of 10mg of and 5mg of Winstrol for six weeks is often enough to help women gain as much as 15 pounds of muscle. Cutting doses are far lower, so women will take only 5mg of Anavar and perhaps 2.5mg of Winstrol in this case.
What You Need to Know about PCT
When men use anabolic steroids of any sort, their natural production of testosterone stops within days. This means that PCT becomes necessary for preventing potentially severe side effects SERMs (such as Clomid and Nolvadex) are requirements; these help to stimulate the natural production of testosterone once your cycle ends. Be sure to follow PCT guidelines after a cycle so you can not only keep yourself healthy, but also maintain your results. You can learn more about this on our profile pages in the menu. For women, things are a bit different. They do not need SERMs because they produce so little testosterone naturally that suppression isn’t as detrimental. However, they will bothl act much like testosterone in the female body, and using the combination over the course of four to six weeks can create a hormonal imbalance.
Women who simply come off steroids cold turkey, even after a few weeks, may notice undesirable effects like fatigue and irritability. To avoid this, simply reducing dose toward the end of the cycle can help tremendously. In a nutshell, if you already have the Winstrol on hand, and if you tend to tolerate anabolic steroids well, a 50mg Var/50mg Winny stack may prove beneficial for men, and as discussed, much less so for women. Just keep an eye on your liver enzymes and your cholesterol levels during and after your cycles.
