Novo-Pharm’s Drostanolone Propionate, also known as Masteron, is a unique anabolic steroid that has been used for over five decades.
Its active substance is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and has been proven to be highly effective in treating breast cancer. However, bodybuilders and athletes have also been using Masteron for its benefits in achieving a lean, hard, and defined physique.
How it works
Masteron binds strongly to the androgen receptors, which enhances protein synthesis and reduces the rate of catabolism. This combination leads to increased muscle mass and strength, making Masteron an attractive option for those looking to enhance their performance.
Masteron is used for cutting cycles mostly, for those who want to:
- Reverse the adverse effects of other steroids on libido (Masteron will boost it);
- Get a lean and shredded look with no excessive fat;
- And want to keep the gains for some time after the cycle.
Masteron is perfectly capable of delivering these effects in a relatively short time, especially if it’s used right.
Also, Masteron Propionate is significantly faster than Masteron Enanthate: 2 days instead of a week of waiting for the effects.
Novo-Pharm's Masteron offers several benefits, including promoting a defined physique, anti-estrogenic effects, and controlling water retention to achieve a dry look.
Additionally, other benefits include increased muscle hardness and density, improved recovery and reduced muscle soreness, boosted strength and power, enhanced athletic performance, reduced body fat, and improved body composition.
Its moderate anabolic potency rating makes it an attractive option for bodybuilders that want to change the looks and work on details of their physique instead of just bulking up.
When using Masteron, several different protocols can be used, including 300-400mg per week for a cycle lasting 8-10 weeks for cutting.
Another popular protocol for pre-contest is using Masteron at a dose of 500mg per week for a cycle lasting 12 weeks, with a stack of testosterone or an addition of Anavar in the end to polish the gains.
Novo-Pharm's Masteron can also be stacked with other compounds for even greater results, such as Trenbolone Acetate or Winstrol for a cutting cycle or Testosterone and Nandrolone for a bulking cycle.
Masteron was first introduced in 1959 and has been in use ever since. Why has it not been replaced with other gear of the next generation? It’s simple: Mast is a perfect compound for those who want to take their second or third cycle. No other compound fits in this role so well.
Masteron is considered moderate in both effects and side effects, so even if it’s not a perfect option for the very first cycle — it’s a reasonable thing to run with just a little experience under the belt.
For post-cycle therapy, Nolvadex and Clomid are the two most popular options. Novo-Pharm recommends 20 to 40 mg of Nolvadex for four weeks after the cycle of Masteron.
As it is a DHT derivative, aromatase inhibitors are not necessary, but may be required if testosterone is added to the cycle with Masteron.
