Clenbuterol vs Winstrol – Which is Better for Weight Loss or Cutting?

If you’re looking to lose weight and get more defined cuts and striations, then you may be considering the use of PEDs to help you out. This is a big decision. Not only is there the question of legality to consider, but also the many potential health risks.

And even once you decide to take the plunge, there are many different options, each with their own unique benefits and risks.

In this post, we will compare two of the most popular cutting and hardening agents: clenbuterol and winstrol. Which is better for cutting?


Clenbuterol is not an anabolic steroid, even though it is commonly used in conjunction with them and for similar ends.

Rather, clenbuterol is:

  1. A stimulant
  2. A bronchodilator

As a bronchodilator, clenbuterol raises the rate at which the lungs can extract oxygen from the air and use them in the blood. This increases cardiovascular/aerobic performance, but it also enhances fat burning, weight loss and appearance.

As a stimulant, clenbuterol is a beta-agonist. This means it works in the opposite manner to a beta-blocker (which is a common anti-anxiety medication). It increases the heartrate, alertness, focus and general mental activity but also increases the resting metabolism to enhance fat burning.

Unfortunately, clenbuterol is not only likely to burn fat, it also comes with many risks and side effects. These include: anxious thoughts, addiction, cardiac hypertrophy leading to heart disease and/or death, increased blood pressure, liver toxicity, increased cholesterol and more.


Winstrol, on the other hand, is a steroid. This is a ‘muscle hardening’ steroid, seeing as it is a derivative of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). That is a hormone that is similar to testosterone but not one and the same. In fact, DHT is more powerful than testosterone and unlike testosterone, can’t be metabolized into oestrogen. This means that Winstrol, unlike some other anabolics, won’t lead to water retention, weight gain or gynecomastia. This makes Winstrol perfect for hardening the muscle.

Moreover, Winstrol appears to have special ‘additional’ ability to increase the burning of adipose tissue by increasing the production of red blood cells.

The problem is that Winstrol also comes with many side effects. It is once again liver toxic and can be fatal in some cases, it also increases joint pain due to its competition with progesterone. It can exaggerate secondary male sexual characteristics and can harm libido.
