Don’t Buy Masteron (Drostanolone) Until You Read This Review!
A lot of old school bodybuilders used to add Proviron to their steroid stacks purely for the libido enhancement and the mental boost that it provides.
But good quality Proviron is extremely difficult to source.
Not to mention that it’s expensive.
Then there are some who find it too mild for the price.
Masteron is everything that Proviron is, at half the price.
Firstly, the cosmetic effect and the strength gains on Masteron is way better than what Proviron produces.
And secondly, you can find it a lot easier in UG labs.
If you have ever felt let down by the watery, puffy gains made on a Testosterone cycle, then Masteron is your ticket to glory.
Certainly, it will hone the results making you look ripped and hard by the end of the cycle.
But there’s a way to run Mast. And sadly, most people can’t figure out how.
So they end up disappointed with it and this gives it a bad name on messaging boards.
Hence, This brief FAQ aims to bunk some myths and clear some facts about how to make the most of your Masteron cycle.
What is Masteron?
Undoubtedly, Masteron or Drostanolone is a DHT-derived, injectable anabolic steroid that’s used primarily as a finishing steroid in a competitive bodybuilder’s stack.
Eventually, it is rarely used by recreational users because it requires a very low body fat percentage to really produce the kind of results that people expect from it.
Therefore, there are two esters of Masteron that are available in UG labs.
Further, which is the more common version is the fast-acting ester that’s typically injected every other day. In case, you are buying Masteron from a UG lab, chances are that it will be the Propionate version.
However, Drostanolone Enanthate is the slower acting ester that can be injected less frequently. Furthermore, this is rarely found in UG labs and even if you do find a source, the quality can be circumspect. Apart from the slow-acting nature, there’s no difference in the kind of results that it produces.
Is Masteron a cutting steroid?
Since, By cutting steroid, if you mean an anabolic that will help you burn fat, then no, it’s not.
Instead, Masteron is a muscle hardening steroid that promotes moderate strength gains and a wee bit of fat loss.
Therefore, it falls into the category of anabolic compounds that promote a cosmetic effect, which is very desirable for a competitive bodybuilding event.
Finally, it flushes out excess water from the body, hardens the muscle, amplifies vascularity and burns some fat, which will only be noticeable if you are below 10% body fat, to begin with.
Furthermore, to add to this, it also has a noticeable anti-estrogenic effect. In fact, it was used for the treatment of breast cancer along with Nolvadex.
While a lot of bodybuilders reduce their AI dosage and add Masteron to their stacks when they are using compounds that readily aromatize.
As a matter of fact, this serves a dual purpose. So, it reduces some of the estrogenic side effects. In fact, it gives the finishing, aesthetic touch to the physique. Which can otherwise get ruined due to excessive water retention caused by aromatization.
Masteron in a steroid stack?
Does this mean that you don’t need an AI if you use Masteron in a steroid stack?
Not really. While Masteron will make estrogenic effects less pronounced, it will not reduce the actual levels of estrogen in the body.
So, you will need to continue using an AI if you are using compounds that have a high rate of aromatization.
How should you use Masteron?
Eventually, as would be evident by now, Masteron is not a great mass building steroid. So, it does work reasonably well in a cutting cycle to preserve lean muscle tissue. But it’s real potential lies in muscle hardening, removing excess water from under the skin and improving vascularity.
At the same time, if you are using compounds that can wreck your libido, like Deca, then Masteron will keep your Weiner functioning.
Therefore, It also makes you feel great all through the cycle.
So, this means that you can add it to the last 8-weeks of a bulking cycle if you are looking for a cosmetic finish to the physique.
For the same reason, if you are cutting, Mast will make your muscle granite-hard and make them veins pop all over the body.
You can also add it in low doses just for the feel-good factor and the libido boost it provides.
Dosage of Masteron
What is the right dose and how long should you run it for?
Finding the right Masteron dose for yourself is a little tricky.
It depends on your prior experience with Masteron and your intended use. If you are a first timer, 300mg/week should suffice to get you great results. This dose will also let you analyze your response to the androgenic side effects of the compound. If you feel great and get good results, you can bump it up slightly in your next cycle.
450mg/week is a good standard dose for an experienced user.
But you’ll find that most experienced users will use up to 600mg/week as this is where they get the most benefits without the risk of side effects.
Professionals might use up to 800mg/week. But you need to have multiple anabolic steroid cycles under your belt to even attempt that dose. Not to mention that it would make you prone to the most severe side effects of the compound.
Can you run Masteron solo?
That would be a waste of your time, money and effort because Masteron will shut you down and you will probably not even feel the effects of the compound.
Masteron is an enhancer that can enhance the results produced by a Testosterone cycle or Test/NPP cycle.
It should always be used in a stack.
How does it compare to SARMS?
Masteron is one of the only anabolic steroids that produce results that are very similar to what you can get with SARMS.
If you are running a Testosterone cycle and you have made wet gains as you call them, you can add some RAD-140 towards the end of the cycle.
Rad will harden you up and make you extremely vascular. That’s pretty much what you can get with Mast.
There’s one difference though. RAD-140 or YK-11 or any other SARM is still a research chemical whereas Masteron is a drug that has been in use for over 6 decades.
Are you better off with a research chemical or a tried, tested and proven one? That’s for you to decide.
