Rexogin is the common brand name for the active anabolic steroid ingredient Stanozolol.
This compound is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, although its activity is much milder than this androgen in nature. It is technically classified as an anabolic steroid. The anabolic properties of this substance are still mild in comparison to many stronger compounds, but it is still a good, reliable builder of muscle. Its anabolic properties could even be comparable to Dianabol, but Winstrol does not have the same tendency for water retention.
Since stanozolol is not capable of converting into estrogen, an anti-estrogen is not necessary when using this steroid alone, gynecomastia is not a concern even among the most sensitive individuals. Since estrogen is also the cause of water retention, instead of bulk look, Winstrol produces a lean, quality look with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention. This makes it a great steroid to use during cutting cycles, when water and fat retention are a major concern. It is also very popular among athletes in combination strength/speed sports where one usually does not want to carry around excess water weight,and may therefore find the raw muscle-growth brought about by Stanozolol quite favorable over the lower quality mass gains of more estrogenic agents.
It is often combined with other steroids depending on the desired result.
For bulking purposes, a stronger androgen like testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol is usually added. Here Winstrol will balance out the cycle a bit, giving us good anabolic effect with lower overall estrogenic activity than if taking such steroids alone. The result should be a considerable gain in new muscle mass, with a more comfortable level of water and fat retention.
For cutting phases Winstrol can be combined with a non-aromatizing androgen such as Trenbolone. Such combinations should help bring about the strongly defined, hard look of muscularity so sought after among bodybuilders. Older, more sensitive individuals can add compounds like Primobolan, Deca-Durabolin or Boldenone (Equipoise) when wishing to stack this steroid. Here they should see good results and fewer side effects than with standard androgen therapies.
