Winstrol Depot (stanozolol) is for most users not a staple steroid and not the foundation of any steroid cycle, but may be included as an extra element. In a few cases, it is used alone. Winstrol Depot as a sole androgen is a non-optimal choice if maximal mass gains are desired, but can be appropriate where mass per se is not needed, but a hard and lean appearance or athletic speed is required.
Trenbolone acetate was first available as the veterinary product Finaject, which is no longer available. Steroid users have also extracted trenbolone acetate from Finaplix cattle implants using conversion kits. Currently, various non-pharmaceutical preparations are now sold by underground labs (UGLs), and many users purchase powdered trenbolone acetate and make their own injectable preparations.
