A: Aggression is a concern for a lot of bodybuilders as well as their spouses or mates. If you’re the sort who reacts to supplementary steroids with aggression, then you’re going to have to deal with it just like you deal with avoiding aromatization of roids and find a solution that works. I somewhat discuss this in the side effects chapter and relay that I feel that everyone should be able to overcome ‘impulse control problems’, triggered by steroids. I find, however, that bodybuilders are lazy and prefer to “act out on this aggression rather than try to remedy the situation by stemming use or developing a coping mechanism. The obvious choice is to avoid drugs that bring out the worst in you. The next choice is to develop a system by which you can disengage from the aggression before you say or do something that you may regret. There isn’t a lot out there on this subject and I think there should be. It’s a serious bummer to have to deal with someone who is amped up’ on drugs and in your face for no reason. It’s especially dangerous for a woman to have to deal with a man who is like this. If it begins happening more often and you aren’t willing to stop steroid use to curtail this problem, seek counseling!
There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.
