Masteron (drostonolone propionate) for 20 years prior was used for inoperable postmenopausal breast cancer in women, then later as a cutting agent used by bodybuilders, which where it is now enjoying its popularity.
What it is:
Drostonolone propionate is a DHT (dihydrotestosteronethe) a derived anabolic ( abiological process of making more complex living organisms from simpler ones) Drostonolone has been altered by the addition of a methyl group. This addition prevents the hormone from a metabolic breakdown by 3 skeletal muscle properties ofHydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzymes.
It also increases the anabolic nature of the hormone as well as the attachment of proplonate ester to control the release time. Masteron is unaffected by the aromatase and 5alpha reductase – enzyme and thereby leaves no estrogen issues, particularly with the increase or lessening of estrogen in the skin and prostrate.
The true effects of Masteron will be best seen in a lean person, during the cutting cycle. This is why Masteron is generally in use at the end of the bodybuilding prep. It is expected that the bodybuilder will at this point be extremely lean.
A benefit when using Masteron, is its influence on anti-estrogen is when using in moderate doses of aromatizing steroids and not with typical doses of Masteron, there is no competition between the estradiol at the estrogen receptor and the receptor is not activated by the Masteron.
However, by competing with the testosterone for the “binding site” of the aromatase enzyme the conversion is indeed reduced.
It would be wrong to leave this the only reason as to what makes Masteron good. Masteron is low in side effectsas an anabolic steroid. At one point it was considered a weak steroid however, it has since been recognized as an anabolic of standard potency.
Masteron provides more of an aesthetically pleasing enhancement. Meaning that it does not provide strength, performance or size.
Why the doubt of potency:
If a low dose is used weekly as would occur with most anabolic steroids this product does not perform well.
The general concentration of Masteron that is given is that of 350 mg per week as provided. In some cases smaller doses are given. 700 mg. per week provides a more satisfactory performance.
However, a major problem with this dose is the availability and the cost of the product.
Dosages are based on a number of factors, for the body builder dosage once becoming lean the dosage can be as high as 1000 mg. per week. However, this dosage is not recommended for those who have health problems such as lipid issues or blood pressure problems.
The dosage of 1000 mg. per week is only recommended for those on a 1 – 2 week cycle.
• The traditional cycle ranges from 1 – 12 weeks long. It is a combination of enanthate testosterone at 300 – 500 mg. per week
• Masteron (Drostonolone Enanthate a Masteron variant) at 400 mg. per week.
This variant is used for the beginner due to several reasons;
• Combines perfectly with the enanthate testosterone
• Compensates for the infrequent scheduling of injections
• The testosterone is used in the body building dosages in this case.
• This dose of Masteron will provide the user with familiarity of his reactions to Masteron.
Because of the aromatase inhibitor in Masteron, it should be unnecessary to use an addition aromatase inhibitor. Masteron is not as strong as such inhibitors as aromasin or arimidex but, should the stacking of aromatizable become too large, the aromatase effect of Masteron will be unable to handle it.
Gynecomastia has been a reported effect during a cycle using Masteron along with such aromatizable compounds such as Dianabol and Testosterone.
