Winstrol & Equipoise Dosage for Beginners

Updated April 17, 2017

Because of their ability to promote gains in lean muscle mass, increases in strength and the ability to "cut" fat effectively, many bodybuilders and strength athletes use the steroids Winstrol and Equipoise. Depending on your training goals, the dosage will differ and will also affect other substances you use to "stack" with either Winstrol, Equipoise or both. Please note that in some countries, including the United States, these drugs are illegal to possess without a prescription. If you decide to use these drugs without consulting a physician, be forewarned that they may have very harmful side effects.

Recommended Dosages for Winstrol

Winstrol is the brand name for the steroid hormone stanozolol and comes in two forms: oral pills and an injectable form suspended in water, which some users claim yields better results while costing less. Winstrol is most often used as a drug to "lean out" or improve strength gains, and Winstrol is not known as a steroid that greatly adds muscle mass. Therefore, steroid experts recommend using 50 mg daily. This amount requires five tablets of 10 mg each; if you decide to inject, that will require one daily shot, and users suggest rotating injection sites.
By itself, Winstrol promotes fast and dramatic gains in strength at the recommended dosage. Dianabol provides a good complementary drug for promoting strength gains.

For those looking to gain mass while using Winstrol, try using a product containing nandrolone (like Deca-Durabolin), using 25-50 mg of Winstrol for 6 to 8 weeks.

For those looking to lean out (drop fat while retaining as much muscle as possible), try stacking 25-50 mg of Winstrol with Boldenone, Masteron or trenbolone for 6 weeks. As Winstrol does not aromatise (convert through chemical breakdown) into oestrogen, you will not need to take an antiestrogen while using Winstrol, and you would not need to use any Clomid or Nolvadex after your cycle.

Recommended Dosages for Equipoise

Equipoise is the brand name for the steroid hormone boldenone, a product used mostly in cows and horses to improve their lean body mass. Equipoise has a number of uses for bodybuilders and athletes, from stimulating EPO (erythropoietin) production to increase the number of red blood cells (thereby increasing endurance), to gaining muscle mass easily (indirectly by increasing the appetite), to allowing a user to "cut" bodyweight by leaning out the muscle tissue. Equipoise comes in injectable form only.

By itself Equipoise promotes an increase in muscle mass and muscle hardness at dosages of 300 to 400 mg/week for 8 to 10 weeks. Users recommend "front-loading" this steroid, that is, using an increased dosage in the first 2 weeks (say 600 to 800 mg/week) and then tapering off to 200 to 400 mg/week for the next 6 to 8 weeks.

To keep your existing muscle mass while increasing muscle hardness and losing fat, you can combine Equipoise with Winstrol, taking 300 to 400 mg/week of Equipoise and 25-50 mg of Winstrol daily for 8 to 10 weeks. To lean out, you can also try stacking normal doses of Equipoise with trenbolone, using 76 mg of the latter every other day to increase lean muscle mass.

Those looking to greatly increase muscle mass and keep their gains after they stop using the drugs might try stacking Equipoise with testosterone. This stack will enable users to maximise the appetite increases that accompany Equipoise usage, as testosterone is a strong anabolic (muscle-building) drug. Along with normal dosages of Equipoise, try using 500 mg/week of Sustanon (a multi-form testosterone) or 500 mg/week of testosterone enanthate.

Like Winstrol, Equipoise by itself does not aromatise into oestrogen. Therefore, users only using Equipoise will not need to take anti-oestrogen during the dosing period and will not have to use any anti-oestrogen (like Clomid or Nolvadex) after the dosing period has ended.
