Novo-pharm Masteron - Drostanolone Propionate General Description
Masteron is an anabolic steroid with a high androgenic index and moderate anabolic effects (it is also known in sports as Drostanolone). Masteron does not produce aromatization in the body – it does not convert to estrogens, but has the opposite effect and can be regarded as an inhibitor of aromatase. By its pharmacological activity, the steroid can be comapred to dihydrotestosterone; Drostanolone is its derivative. Originally developed for medical use as a drug for the treatment of breast cancer in women, Masteron is no longer used for this aim because of the high risk of virilization (manifestation of secondary male sexual characteristics).
Masteron can be produced in the form of two esters, propionate and enanthate, which vary only in their activity length. Generally, the word “Masteron” refers to propionate. In bodybuilding, drostanolone is commonly used to maintain increases of muscle mass and improve strength while cutting. Runners and athletes often use the steroid to stay in the same competitive weight category (meaning no weight gain).
Novo-pharm Masteron Propionate Benefits
Because of its moderate diuretic effect and a lack of fluid accumulation, Masteron is popular in bodybuilding for improving body definition and adding more pronunciation to muscles. Drostanolone can be used by athletes seeking to increase their muscle tissue's toughness and density, in which case the steroid is used shortly before a championship.
Novo-pharm Masteron Propionate provides more definition to the muscles due to its ability burn body fat. In practice, it has been proven that the average solo cycle can reduce fat from the initial value by 5-7 percent. The steroid, while maintaining the original muscle volume and reducing body fat, is characterized by increased strength performance. The medication may be used to maintain muscle gain and inhibit catabolic processes during a weight loss diet. As a consequence, a list of positive effects can result from the steroid cycle:
• increased strength potential;
• suppressed muscle catabolism, meaning the breakdown of muscle fibers;
• moderate diuretic effect;
• significant reduction in body fat;
• preserved accumulated muscle mass;
• improved definition, vascularity, increased muscle density and toughness.
Masteron has low anabolic and androgenic index values, but the drug's basis is dihydrotestosterone – its androgenic activity is five times higher than that of the primary male sex hormone. The metabolism in the body is induced by many anabolic steroids, but potent androgens impair lipolysis. Drostanolone is rarely used to build muscle mass, but sometimes it is used for this exact purpose by some athletes. Weightlifters, baseball players, swimmers and other athletes highly appreciate the drug's positive properties.
Novo-pharm Masteron Propionate Possible Side Effects
The drug's mild anabolic effect encourages rapid burning of fat, but also increases the risk of developing undesirable symptoms: acne, hair loss, increased aggression, prostatic hyperplasia, virilescence (for women). The steroid does not cause increased blood pressure, water retention or toxic effects on the liver.
Novo-pharm Masteron Propionate Administration and Dosage
Drostanolone propionate's standard dose for men is 300-400 mg once a week. Injections must be made every other day at 100 mg, with a cycle duration of 6-8 weeks for beginners. Experienced athletes may prolong the cycle for up to 10 weeks, but the addition of HCG injections at 500-1000 IU per week from the second week is vital. Women can use 50 mg of the steroid per week, in which case the cycle will last a month and a half. Many female athletes may use up to 100 mg of the androgen weekly, but such dosages can cause irreversible symptoms of virilescence.
Athletes whose body fat percentage exceeds 25 percent are recommended to use the steroid, otherwise users may not experience all the positive effects. The primary drugs for PCT are antiestrogens (Novo-pharm Clomid, Novo-pharm Nolvadex) and testosterone boosters. Conducting PCT is essential after the end of the cycle. The bodies of athletes produce an imbalance in the hormonal profile after using anabolic drugs, which is why the production of the endogenous male hormone needs to be restored.
Novo-pharm Masteron Propionate Combined Cycles
The steroid is better paired with Winstrol and Oxandrolone due to the strong binding of Drostanolone to androgen receptors and their androgenic effects. Injectable Stanozolol interacts to a lesser extent with androgen receptors and reduces the level of globulin binding sex hormone. During a cutting cycle, this combination will show pronounced synergy effects, meaning the steroids will enhance the positive effects of each other. Some examples of combined cycles are as follows:
• Masteron + Oxandrolone. Anavar at 50 mg daily and Drostanolone at 400 mg per week.
• Masteron + Turinabol. Masteron at 400 mg per week and Turinabol at 40 mg daily.
• Masteron + Stanozolol. Stanozolol at 40 mg daily and Masteron at 400 mg per week.
The above schemes are aimed at optimizing cutting cycles, in the case of Trenbolone – at building outstanding lean muscle by 4-5 kg per cycle. Athletes may use Masteron with testosterone propionate for high muscle mass increases, but it will substantially inhibit the secretion of the endogenous male hormone. Long cycles that last over 6 weeks require additional gonadotropin. To build up impressive muscle mass, Masteron can also be combined with Trenbolone or Boldenone.
