Masteron is a brand name under which the well-known and popular bodybuilder Drostanolone propionate, an anabolic steroid previously used medically for the treatment of breast cancer in women, is marketed. But, since this remedy was distinguished by a strong possibility of virilization or, more simply, the appearance of male features in women, it is currently practically not used in medicine.
This essential mixture of propionate and enanthate has a fairly high androgenic activity, but the anabolic effect, on the contrary, is moderate.
One of the main benefits of Masteron in bodybuilding is the lack of aromatization in an athlete’s body, ie. it cannot be expected to convert into estrogen; on the contrary, the substance serves as an excellent aromatase inhibitor.
Application in bodybuilding
Masteron has been actively used in sports (bodybuilding and weightlifting) – it is great for maintaining and increasing muscle mass, as well as strength indicators, which has a positive effect on the “drying” of the body and all its cycles .
Most often it is used by athletes (including runners) who strive to maintain the achieved weight category, but without unduly influencing body weight in the direction of its increase.
Masternon has gained wide popularity due to its properties of not affecting fluid accumulation and quite moderate diuretic result, which allows you to get excellent muscle relief.
In general, athletes who want to achieve muscle hardness and density before major competitions pay attention to this. And thanks to the drug, you can really achieve an expressive state of muscle mass, because masternon also has a pronounced fat-burning effect.
Professional bodybuilders, athletes consider it the best anabolic due to its fairly wide properties:
- Increases strength without reducing fat (especially this property attracts weightlifters).
- Suppression of catabolism and retention of muscle mass in a diet for weight loss.
- Increase in strength indicators.
- Muscle gain (in combination with testosterone esters).
- Anti-estrogenic action.
The low anabolic rate allows Masternon to do an excellent job of burning fat, but at the same time it carries the risk of a variety of androgenic-like side effects.
These adverse results can be safely attributed to:
- androgenic issues: increased aggression, hair loss, enlarged prostate, and even muscle-building effect (for female athletes);
- an increase in cholesterol in the blood.
But at the same time, this anabolic is not subject to such undesirable consequences as water retention in the body or an effect on the pressure gauge, and it has a low level of toxicity.
