High Masteron doses normally begin at 200mg every other day or 600-800mg per week. Technically 150mg every other day would be considered high, but many report Masteron doses of 600-800mg per week to be where this steroid truly shines. Unfortunately, Masteron doses of this nature can be very harsh on cholesterol. Such Masteron doses can also greatly exasperate the androgenic side effects of the compound in sensitive individuals. However, it is possible to control such doses, but it will take some effort and experience. You should not begin with high Masteron doses. Its also important to recognize you may never need them.
Masteron will significantly suppress natural testosterone production making exogenous testosterone therapy important when using this steroid. Failure to include exogenous testosterone will lead most men to a low testosterone condition, which not only comes with numerous possible symptoms but is also extremely unhealthy.
As most will use Masteron in a cutting cycle, it’s very common not to want to use a lot of testosterone due to the high levels of estrogenic activity it can provide. If this is the case, you will find a low dose of 100-200mg per week of testosterone to be enough to combat suppression and give you the needed testosterone.
Once Masteron is discontinued and all exogenous steroidal hormones have cleared your system, natural testosterone production will begin again. Prior levels will not return to normal over night, this will take several months. Due to the slow recovery, Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans are often recommended. This will speed up the recovery greatly; however, it won’t bring your levels back to their peak, this will still take time. A PCT plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise and significantly cut down on the total recovery time. This natural recovery does assume no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) through improper supplementation practices.
While Masteron-Propionate is very fast acting and short lived in duration the same cannot be said about the large ester Masteron-Enanthate form and due to this fact one will find the Enanthate version may be injected far less than its Propionate brother. Masteron-Propionate must necessarily be injected every other day but the Enanthate form is well-suited at a mere two injections per week. This is perhaps the only real distinct advantage of the Enanthate form over the Propionate form, one can inject far less frequently; however, it may not be as much of an advantage as you think. As Masteron is for all intense purposes a steroid that will generally be used while cutting, especially at the end of a contest bodybuilding cycle , most individuals will be using other short ester based anabolics and injecting on an everyday to every other day basis to begin with. If this is the case you’re better off simply going with Masteron-Propionate as it is generally a purer substance; Masteron-Enanthate in itself is not the problem but many of the labs who make it seem to have a hard time with it.
For the standard bodybuilding dose most will run approximately 300-400mg per week of the compound with 600mg per week generally being considered a high-end dose and about as high as you’ll ever need to go and most will never need to go this high. You could run less than 300mg but 200mg per week would be the minimum to see any results and in most people 200mg won’t provide that much of a bump. Most bodybuilders and gym rats will find Masteron-Enanthate to be a welcomed addition to a stack when dieting and in most cases the final 6-8 weeks of the cycle.
