What is Drostanolone Propionate?
Masteron (Drostanolone Propionate) is perhaps one of the more ‘exotic’ androgenic anabolic steroids (AAS) that was used by an athlete. It was largely used in combination with the SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) Tamoxifen (aka Nolvadex) for the treatment of breast cancer, and did give a significant decrease in estrogen levels in women undergoing such treatment. But it’s not much used these days for such purposes for varying reasons. However for many athletes including competitive bodybuilders in particular. Masteron remains a rather unsung favourite of AS medicines.
Drostanolone Propionate Dosage
Masteron can be pretty much incorporated into any cycle containing testosterone (see Testosterone as an Anabolic Steroid). The dosages of Masteron are as following:
350-500mg per week (propionate version, injected every other day)
400-600mg per week (enanthate version, injected twice per week)
An example of an excellent cutting cycle for an advanced user would be: (6-10 weeks)
150mg Testosterone propionate every other day
50mg Trenbolone acetate every day (or 100mg every other day)
150mg Masteron (propionate) every other day
50mg Winstrol every day, last 4 weeks of cycle only
Of course with such an intermediate/advanced cycle, the user could also incorporate other medicines such as Clenbuterol, Ephedrine, T3, growth hormone, IGF, etc.
A more novice cutting cycle may consist of: (6-8 weeks)
100mg Testosterone propionate every other day
100mg Masteron (propionate) every other day
Drostanolone Propionate Suggested Cycles/Uses
Due to the effects of Masteron on estrogen related side effects, Masteron is a very useful tool (especially in competitive bodybuilding) when cutting. As higher levels of estrogen result in water retention, Masteron inhibits water retention, and many users claim that their muscles feel very full and tight on Masteron, with it giving them amazing ‘muscle pumps’ in the gym.
Use of Masteron (in combination with other appropriate meds) at low body fat levels results in the user seeing fine detail of the muscles accentuated. Such as striations and the fine details of the muscle. Masteron also helps draw out the water from between the skin and the muscle giving this very cut look. Not many other AS medicines can give such effects on muscle detail as those seen with Masteron.
