It could be argued that aromatization is a non-issue, as an . could always be employed to counter estrogen conversion. This is true, but I believe there is a simpler way to go about it. In my opinion, the ideal pre-contest MPD cycle should consist of a low dose of testosterone propionate (150-200 mg/week), as at least some estrogen is needed to maintain a healthy looking skin tone. This should be combined with 2-3 other anabolics; preferably 1-2 oral anabolics and 1-2 injectables anabolics. Some good examples of orals include: Anavar, Epistane, and Turinabol. As for injectables, most people usually find the following drugs to be compatible: Primo, Boldenone, and Dihydroboldenone (1-testosterone).
Winstrol is generally not preferred for building mass as it is highly anabolic and very slightly androgenic, an oral Steroid such as Dianabol is usually a better choice for people wanting to bulk up. Due to its ability to dramatically lower SHBG it can be used in a bulking cycle as a means to make other hormones more efficient, increase free testosterone and even solidify gains to a stronger degree but most of the people will find other steroids to be far more beneficial than winstrol in the long run. However some people are very sensitive to side effects of certain Steroids such as Dianabol, and would rather use Winstrol in a bulking cycle, while the weight gain wont be as dramatic as with Dianabol, with a proper high calorie diet, you can still see good results.
Obviously this is quite a difficult issue, doping in general. I don’t think it can ever be eliminated or even significantly reduced. That being said, I still think we should try. In my opinion, we should continue to fight for that very unrealistic dream of “natural athletes”. I’d love to see what humans are really capable of, even though many would rather go back to an era of Blagoevs, Zlatevs, Suleymanoglus etc. And as for today, we should at least not give preferential treatments to anyone. Every time I hear a British/American low tier lifter whine about the “mighty, roided Russians” or shit like that my stomach turns. Like they’re fuckin clean. And people hate on the exceptional Russian lifters calin them out, while praising Xiaojun and Ilya, who are obiously doped af. It ain’t right.
