In the Bodybuilding community, Winstrol is used primarily as a cutting/pre-contest steroid, but can also be used during lean bulk cycles. It does not perform well as a mass-builder, but does a great job of building moderate amounts of lean tissue completely devoid of water retention. Combined with its ability to improve muscular hardness, density, and vascularity, it allows those with sufficiently low bodyfat to showcase the maximum in muscle detail. For individuals with higher levels of bodyfat seeking physique improvement, Winstrol is a poor choice, as many of its benefits on the musculature will be non-apparent. However, for those who currently display good condition, Winstrol can be used as a finishing touch in order to bring the physique from good to great. Winstrol is also a popular drug among individuals looking to increase muscle strength and power without a commensurate increase in bodyweight, such as the various strength athletes and sportsmen. While one should not expect strength increases on par with a drug like Anadrol, its ability to enhance strength without relying on sheer bulk is impressive.
