Masteron or ”Drostanolone Propionate” is a synthetic cutting steroid very popular for already somewhat lean physiques. Masteron is known for its incredible ability to push a physique past the point its able to get naturally, particularly with regard to bodybuilding competitions.

It works by attaching itself to the body androgen receptors causing it to interact with the other cell parts responsible for producing protein. The modification makes this steroid increase’s one anabolic strength.

What is Masteron

Masteron (Drostanolone Propionate) is an exotic androgenic steroid that was initially used as an anti-estrogen.

However, today, bodybuilders and athletes use it for muscle gain, and cutting cycles. At first, this product was developed under the Masteril brand and was popularly used as anti-estrogen. The original prescription was to help cure breast cancer in conjunction with other drugs. Today, since the product influences hormonal systems in the body, this product has become popular among bodybuilders and athletes.

There are two types of forms of Masteron or Drostanolone;

Drostanolone propionate

This is the original form of Masteron, and it is popular among many people. It is effective when used as anti-estrogen and anabolic, but if compared to other steroids, it’s not as strong as they are. Regardless, this type of Masteron is effective in helping improve muscle strength. It is a DHT derivative with an additional methyl group to carbon two positions and a carboxylic acid ester added to the 17beta group.

As a result, the drug is strong and has a slow metabolism effect on the body.

Drostanolone enanthate

This type of Masteron is of a longer ester and therefore it takes a longer time to clear from the body (than Drostanolone Propionate does). For those using it, this means you don’t have to take the dose frequently but rather use slightly larger doses. This is why some choose to consider this option. Also, most people prefer to use this Masteron alongside Testosterone Enanthate because they are VERY effective together.

Masteron dosage benefits:

Here are some of the most popular results or benefits of Masteron reported by its users;

Fat loss

Masteron helps in reducing your body fat percentage hence allowing your muscles to pop out. It increases your metabolic rate, which burns down more fat for energy use. In so doing, it gives the user a shredded and ripped physique.

Hard & dry look

Drostanolone is effective for hardening or muscles, giving the user a hard and dry look. Most athletes run a cycle to harden their muscles and increase muscle density. With a boost in the muscles, the overall individual’s physique is improved. Besides muscle hardening, this steroid stimulates muscle growth by hindering the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.

As a result, your body gathers enough testosterone and uses it to grow muscles.


Athletes and bodybuilders use Drostanolone because it helps boost energy levels and strength, hence increasing their performance whether they’re working out or not.

It increases the effects of other steroids

If used in conjunction with others, their combined strength can make them effective. For instance, most people prefer to use this Masteron alongside Testosterone Enanthate because they are VERY effective together.

Masteron dosage:

The dosage of this steroid depends on factors such as the form you’re using. Drostanolone Enanthate is given in moderate doses of usually about 300-400mg./ml.. On the other hand, the Drostanolone Propionate is given at lower doses of 50 to 150mg/ml. Since it has a short half-life, it is injected regularly.

Beginners will want to keep their dose to no lower than 200 mgs. per week to see effects. Unlike other steroids, even beginners taking Masteron can quickly up their intake dosage up to 400 mgs. a week. 400 mgs. is where you REALLY see the most bang for your buck as far as Masteron’s hardening effect is concerned.

The gap between experienced and inexperienced user is probably smallest with Masteron than with any other steroid (insofar as increasing your dosage is concerned).

Masteron doses generally fall between 300 to 400mg. weekly doses. Masteron is not and should not be considered the ”primary” anabolic steroid in a cycle, as its just not anabolically strong enough to qualify for that title. This is one reason its never necessary to exceed 400mgs. a week, as that’s about where the ceiling is on the dose to results ratio.

Female dosage

For athletes and bodybuilders who are women, a dose of 50 to 100mg weekly is enough to be effective for as long as four to six weeks. A higher dosage has shown evidence of virilization.

Proper timing & administration of Masteron dosage:

As mentioned earlier, Masteron steroid is in two forms;

• Drostanolone Propionate
• Drostanolone Enanthate

Propionate is the only form that is medically proved. Enanthate was only an underground laboratory product. While Propionate has to be administered at least every day, Enanthate should be administered two days a week.

Typical Masteron cycles:

Using a Masteron steroid as part of the cutting cycle can help in maintaining testosterone levels.

Beginner cycle

Beginners can start with low doses of 200mg to 300mg in a week. The dose should be injected. The cycle runs through 12 weeks giving the new users a chance to evaluate how effective this steroid is.

Intermediate cycle

This cycle is tolerable and can deliver much more noticeable results. The cycle calls for regular injections. The cycle goes for 10 weeks with a daily dose of 65mg or 400mg weekly.

Advanced cycle

Since the users aim to get physique-hardening, this cycle will help them with higher anabolic properties. A testosterone ester can be added to the cycle to help maintain a dose.

Stacking Masteron

This steroid is a more effective stacking steroid when used with other steroid compounds. Testosterone can be used in a Masteron cycle to help retain testosterone functionality, while Masteron hinders testosterone production. If used in a cutting cycle, users can stack it with other powerful cutting compounds like Winstrol and Anavar to get good results.

What results can I expect using Masteron?

Those taking Masteron should expect to gain more lean, rock-solid muscles with no water retention and far less fat gain. This is as long as you supplement the cycle with a proper diet.

Side Effects from Masteron Cycle:

Androgenic side effects

This includes effects of the steroid such as baldness and hair loss. This will only happen to those with a genetic pre-disposition to baldness and hair loss. Other side effects include acne and having oily skin.


Masteron can result in the rise of bad type cholesterol (LDL) while decreasing the good type cholesterol levels. If you’re on Masteron, it’s essential to keep an eye on your cholesterol levels to be on the safe side.

It suppresses testosterone

This is the case with many steroids. Continuous and excessive use of Masteron can suppress the ability of the body to produce testosterone naturally. After you stop taking the steroid, it will take even up to a month before your body can naturally produce testosterone again.

Masteron post cycle therapy:

This step is important as it ensures your body’s natural process of testosterone production is stimulated. You can try out drugs such as Clomid and Nolvadex, which will help testosterone stimulation.

Common FAQ Related to Masteron:

What is Masteron used for?

Initially, this steroid was created to help in breast cancer treatment due to its anti-estrogen properties. Today, bodybuilders and athletes use it for cycles and getting that hard, cut and dry look.

Where do you inject Masteron?

It is an intramuscular injection that aims at getting the solution deep into the tissues so that it quickly enters the bloodstream. Larger and stronger muscles such as those in the deltoid, buttocks and thigh are recommended for injection.


The Masteron steroid might not be a strong steroid, however when taken in conjunction with others, it can REALLY help reduce fat gain and harden your muscles. This and the mild side effects tend to be why most people choose Drostanolone over other options.
