Drostanolone Propionate is perhaps one of the more exotic androgenic / anabolic steroids, which can be used by an athlete. Was originally developed and used as an anti-estrogen used to treat breast cancer. It was especially in combination with a SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators) used tamoxifen (Nolvadex) for the treatment of breast cancer, and did give a significant decrease in estrogen levels in women subjected to such treatment. There is not much used these days for such purposes, for different reasons, but for many athletes including competitive bodybuilders in particular remains a rather Drostanolone Propionate secret favorite of AS drugs.
Primary Use: Masteron is diverse drug, being employed for a variety of purposes in both BB’rs, strength sports, and other athletic endeavors. Generally, it is viewed as a cutting steroid, as its lackluster muscle building ability does not lend itself well to this function, but where it falls short in muscle-building potential, it more than makes up for with its other benefits. When it comes to BB’ing, Masteron makes a great pre-contest drug, due to its ability to decrease water retention, increase muscle hardness, enhance muscle density, and improve the overall quality of the physique. For powerlifters, it is frequently used to increase strength without adding bodyweight. This same trait makes it favorable for use in many other athletic disciplines, where an increase in muscle power relative to bodyweight is desired. Masteron’s reputation for increasing both sex drive and aggression is well-noted, making it beneficial in both the weight room and the bedroom. Additionally, the drug provides a pronounced anti-estrogenic effect, allowing steroid users to administer aromatizable drugs without fear of suffering from the typical estrogenic side effects like gynecomastia, water retention, etc. As you can see, with such a wide range of potential applications, this drug properly finds itself a home in the program of just about anyone.
Masteron potentiates the effects (to a certain degree) of any other anabolic steroids it is stacked with in any variety of Masteron cycles. It has been previously mentioned that Masteron holds a moderate anabolic strength rating, making it only ever so slightly stronger than Testosterone, and in some cases may be weaker. Masteron’s highlight lies in its ability to assist and potentiate the activity and effects of other compounds stacked with it. Essentially, it allows the other stacked anabolic steroids alongside it to exhibit better effects. This occurs not only through its anti-estrogen and anti-aromatase effects, but through its ability to prevent a measurable amount of SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) from binding to other anabolic steroids and rendering them inactive.
