Masteron is a steroid highly valued by competing
bodybuilders. The great popularity of this injectable steroid in bodybuilder
circles is due to the extraordinary characteristics of its included substance.
Drostanolone propionate is a synthetic derivative of dihydrotestosterone. This
causes the Masteron not to aromatize in any dosage and thus, it cannot be
converted into estrogens. Since Masteron is a predominantly androgenic steroid,
the athlete can increase his androgen level without also risking an increase in
his estrogen level. This results in a dramatically improved hardness and
sharpness of the muscles. One must, however, make a distinction here since
Masteron does not automatically improve the quality of muscles in everyone. A
prerequisite is that the athlete’s fat content must already be very low. In
this case Masteron can then be the decisive factor between a smooth, flat
muscle or a hard and ripped look. For this purpose Masteron is often only used
during the last four weeks before a competition so that the muscles get the
last “kick.” Masteron is especially effective in combination with
steroids such as Winstrol, Parabolan, Primobolan, Oxandrolone and also
dosage taken by athletes is around 100 mg three limes per week. Since the
substance drostanolone propionate is quickly broken down in the body, frequent
and regular injections are neces-sary. This fact makes Masteron a very
interesting steroid when dop-ing tests must be passed by a negative urine analysis.
Since the pro-pionate substance of drostanolone does not remain in the body
very long in a sufficient, detectable amount, athletes inject the com-pound
with great success up to two weeks before a test. However, since it also has
anabolic characteristics and thus helps the buildup of a high-qualitative
muscle system, the use of Masteron is not only limited to the preparation stage
for a competition. Athletes who want to avoid water retention and who readily
have a problem with an elevated estrogen level, likewise appreciate Masteron.
Also in this case usually one ampule (100 mg) is injected every second day. In
combination with Primobolan, Winstrol or Testosterone pro-pionate no enormous
strength and weight gains can be obtained, only high-quality and long-lasting
results. Although women do not use Masteron very often some national and
international com-peting female athletes do take it before a championship. The
dosages observed are normally 100 mg every 4-5 days.
Masteron is not hepatoxic so liver damage is quite unlikely. High blood
pressure and gynecomastia are not a problem since neither water nor salt
retention occurs and the estrogen level remains low. The main problem are acne
and a possible accelerated hair loss since dihydrotestosterone is highly
affinitive to the skin’s androgen re-ceptors, in particular, to those on the
scalp. Since Masteron, in most cases, is not administered in excessively high
dosages and the in-take, at the same time, is limited to a few weeks, the
compatibility for the athlete is usually very good.
