The use of anabolic steroids such as Winstrol may be associated with serious adverse reactions, many of which are dose related. Patients should be placed on the lowest possible effective dose. Medications that may interact with Winstrol include anticoagulants (blood thinners), insulin , or an oral diabetes medicine. Tell your doctor all medications you are taking. Winstrol is known to cause birth defects in a fetus. Do not take this medication if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether Winstrol is excreted in human milk. Many drugs are excreted in human milk and there is the potential for adverse reactions in nursing infants from anabolic steroids. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
The strength training circuit (STC) produces a total-body training effect for the development of strength and mobility. (See Table 9-9.) A sequence combining a CL, a military movement drill, and kettlebell exercises works every muscle group with active recovery between stations of exercise. The STC is best conducted at platoon level. The STC may be laid out around a running track, field, or any area of adequate size, and with access to climbing bars and kettlebells. This paragraph provides a diagram of the STC, using a running track, climbing bars, and kettlebells. (See Figure 9-34.) Conduct preparation according to Chapter 7 after a walkthrough and brief explanation of the STC exercise stations. (See Table 9-10.) The circuit may be completed in three rotations. Soldiers spend 60 seconds at each station. The instructor controls exercise time using a stopwatch and uses a whistle or horn to signal a change of station. At the end of all circuit rotations, recovery is conducted according to instructions in Chapter 7.
