Masteron is one of the most popular steroids used by bodybuilders and athletes. This steroid provides countless benefits to those who choose to cycle with it. Before we jump into cycles of Masteron, we feel that it’s important to give you a little explanation of the steroid.
Masteron is an oil-based steroid that is given by injection. It was developed as far back as the 1950s but didn’t hit commercial markets until the 1970s. This steroid is considered cosmetic and is said to add polish and shine to an already lean, toned physique. There are two types of this steroid: Masteron Propionate and Masteron Enanthate. The propionate version of Masteron is much more popular in the fitness industry. It works faster than the enanthate version and is injected more frequently.
Masteron is a steroid widely known for it’s cutting effects; therefore, if you are looking to bulk-up, this is not the steroid to incorporate in your cycle. Let’s first take a look at cycles that only incorporate Masteron Propionate.
Cycles of Masteron alone typically last no more than eight weeks. For those wanting to use Masteron in a cycle by itself, we have provided a few solo cycles of Masteron Propionate.
When taking Masteron by itself, the gains made will be very slow and steady but will fall short of being impressive. But due to the relative absence of side effects and its lack of estrogenic action, it may be suitable for beginners who want a gentle introduction to using anabolic steroids.
Masteron really shines when it comes to muscle hardening effects. Muscle density also increases from injecting this steroid. Because this steroid will suck the water retention from your body, skin will appear thinner causing muscles to look fuller and more defined.
Post Cycle Therapy or PCT is a method used by anabolic steroid users to fasten the hormonal recovery of their bodies after a cycle. There are two options once a cycle of steroids is complete:
1. Let your body heal on its own, which in some cases could take 3-4 months or longer (depending on the length of your steroid cycle and what steroids were taken).
2. Do PCT by using drugs or supplements to help restore balance in your body in addition to stimulate the production of natural testosterone.
Typically, choosing to run PCT is much more sensible and will benefit your body in the long run (especially if you continue to cycle with steroids). Cycles of PCT last four weeks and the most common drugs used are HCG, Clomid and/or Nolvadex. Experienced steroid users choose either Clomid or Nolvadex (based on personal preference). Larger doses are recommended for the first two weeks of PCT followed by lower doses for the last two weeks. Running high doses for the entire four weeks of PCT will increase your risk of side effects from Clomid or Nolvadex.
While running PCT some users may experience mood swings and a decrease in the ambition to hit the gym as hard as when running your cycle of steroids. It is important not to get discouraged but to give your body the time it needs to rest, regroup and recharge for the next cutting or bulking cycle.
Overall, Masteron holds a special place in the minds and cycles of experienced steroid users including bodybuilders and athletes who compete on a regular basis. While this steroid is considered to add polish, shine and the finishing touches to an already chiseled body, it can only benefit those who really want to stand out in the crowd (or on stage). Using Masteron by itself is not as effective as using it alongside other steroids. But for those who are lean and toned and are new to the steroid world, it can make some noticeable changes to the body.
