Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
It generally only takes a low dose of T3 to treat hypothyroidism. This will not necessarily promote enhanced fat loss, but it should return the metabolism back to proper working order. However, many performance enhancing athletes enjoy using triiodothyronine to in fact enhance direct fat loss. The use of Triiodothyronine alongside a calorie restricted diet will promote significant and accelerated fat loss. While effective, generally this type of use cannot be recommended without the use of anabolic steroids. Due to the necessarily higher doses needed to promote enhanced fat loss and due to the depletion of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), this can promote lean tissue loss. The body will take whatever it needs from wherever it can get it to meet its energy demands. For this reason, an anabolic protectant is normally advised when supplementing with T3 for this purpose.
As for bodybuilders, Stanozolol has one interesting peculiarity demanded among them. It consists in the profound ability to lower sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) level resulting in efficiency growing of other steroids in stack with it. In particular, it raises the amount of biologically active free testosterone circulating in the blood. For this reason it is advisable always to use Stanozolol in stack with testosterone. Another one reason for this is as follows: Winstrol may be more prone than other anabolic steroids to increasing tendon brittleness. This happens due to Winstrol`s possibility to dry out the joint fluid, which can lead to joint pain and damages. Also both Stanozolol forms: tablets and injections have been noted to provoke adverse changes in cholesterol levels. Hence, monitoring of the lipid profile of the body (blood works) during cycle is advisable.
