Stanozolol might be the most notorious anabolic steroid ever known. It has seen more than its fair share of attention in the professional sporting world. Winstrol has been around for many decades and still remains a favorite steroid for different classes of athletes and for different purposes: performance enhancement and athletics, contest preparation and physique competitors, and bodybuilders. More than any other steroids, Winstrol has a notorious history of use among some of the best elite athletes including champion Olympic sprinters like Ben Johnson who tested positive for this steroid at the 1988 Olympic Games. That some of the best athletes on the planet may have thought it desirable to use a steroid like Winstrol to boost performance tells us a lot about just how effective and powerful it is for the regular bodybuilder or non-professional athlete.
