In today’s article, we’re going to be looking at a Masteron cycle and why Masteron is proving to be so popular in the world of bodybuilding.
Now, Masteron, not to be confused with the ancient, and now extinct Mastodon from 11,000 years back or so, is one of the most popular steroids currently used in bodybuilding.
It provides countless benefits and advantages for its users which is why we’re going to be looking at it today.
Trust us, we know that you don’t need anybody to tell you how difficult it is to build muscle.
We’re in the same boat as you, so we know how soul-destroying it is to seemingly live in the gym and not gain a single pound of muscle.
You can, therefore, see why so many people out there, are tempted to utilize anabolic androgenic steroids to transform their physiques.
The main problem with steroids, however, other than the many known dangers and risks associated with them, is the fact that there are so many different varieties to choose from.
Some steroids, for example, are designed to pack on muscle mass, whereas others are more for people looking to strip away unsightly body fat.
It is, therefore, down to you to find the steroid that works best for you and your specific goals and requirements.
If you are thinking of running a cycle, however, then this useful guide could be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Here’s a more detailed look at Masteron.

As you know, anabolic androgenic steroids are illegal in many parts of the world.
Despite this, however, they are still commonly used by bodybuilders up and down the globe.
In fact, a wide variety of different people choose to use steroids, so we would rather educate than condemn them.
We know that steroids are dangerous, which is why we want to tell you how to use them correctly and to warn you about the risks they pose.
We would never recommend their usage, but at the same time, we also will not judge those that use them either.
Now that we’ve covered the legal matters, let’s get back to the task at hand.
Masteron is an oil-based steroid that is administered via injection.
The company Syntex developed this steroid back in the late 1950s, but it didn’t hit the commercial markets until the 70s.
Yes, that’s right, Masteron was once a legal steroid like many before it and some after it.
It was actually available for around two decades.
It wasn’t however, used primarily by athletes or bodybuilders, nor was it designed to promote muscle growth and increased athletic ability.
In reality, Masteron was used as part of breast cancer treatment.
This steroid is considered to be a ‘designer steroid’ that is seen as exotic, rare, and powerful.
Primarily it was created to serve as an anti-Estrogen that was used alongside SERMs to help treat breast cancer.
For women undergoing treatment, Estrogen levels did, in fact, drop very sharply.
Soon, however, users began to notice increases in weight, muscle mass, and strength.
As this is an anti-estrogen steroid, you can probably guess already that it does not aromatize and convert to estrogen.
Despite this, however, it still possesses many androgenic and anabolic properties, though some see it as being not a very strong androgen.
This is an incorrect assumption as the steroid is actually very strong.
It does shut natural testosterone production down so PCT is always required, no matter what.
Up next we’re going to take a look at a few common benefits associated with running a cycle.
Okay, if you compare this steroid to something more potent and powerful such as testosterone suspension, Trenbolone, or Winstrol, for example, it perhaps isn’t as impressive for somebody looking to bulk up and pack on the muscle mass.
However, not everybody is looking to transform themselves into a mass monster and if the genetic freak look isn’t for you, Masteron is ideal.
This steroid will help you to build lean muscle mass in a relatively short amount of time.
The exact amounts, of course, vary from user to user, but generally speaking, those using Masteron can expect to gain anything from 10 pounds to 20 pounds during a cycle.
The world of bodybuilding is slowly changing.
It seems as if people are no longer as obsessed with the enormous mass monsters dominating the stages with their HGH growth guts or what called Palumboism, and people are instead more interested in lean, muscular, aesthetically-pleasing physiques.
For most, an aesthetically-pleasing physique is ripped, muscular, defined, and very lean with a small and tight waist.
Most aesthetically-pleasing bodybuilders are closer to 200 pounds than 300 pounds.
This is where Masteron proves especially useful.
You see, Masteron is a steroid that promotes fat loss, lean muscle growth, and lean, dry physiques.
It does not aromatize so there are no common Estrogenic side effects like water retention.
This is very important for a bodybuilder looking to bring his best look to the stage.
If you’re looking to bulk up, Masteron probably isn’t for you.
If however, you’re looking to cut and get ripped and defined before stepping on stage or taking part in a photoshoot, Masteron is perfect.
Many bodybuilders will utilize Masteron as part of their cutting cycle in a bid to look as lean, ripped, and muscular as they possibly can when they step on stage to compete.
If your cutting cycle is lacking something, Masteron could be it.
When you cut down and diet for a contest, your caloric intake will be naturally lower than you are used to.
This will result in you experiencing low energy levels.
When your energy levels are low, you’ll feel tired, lethargic, and unmotivated.
For people looking to hit the gym and train, this is a very big problem.
So, what can be done?
Well, other than relying on copious amounts of coffee and pre-workout supplements, an effective way of countering these lapses in energy is to use Masteron.
Masteron is a steroid which has been found to help ramp up the metabolism and promote steady increases in energy and endurance.
From an athletic perspective, this is obviously very beneficial indeed.
Now it’s time for us to take a look at a sample cycle of Masteron.
Before you even consider using Masteron or any other steroids for that matter, it’s absolutely essential that you know how to use Masteron correctly.
Here’s a look at a sample Masteron or two for you to consider:
If you wish to begin with a low dosage of Masteron, it is recommended that you follow the upcoming cycle.
Typically, injections should be performed every other day.
Per week, you should aim for very low dosages, so 200mg – 300mg per week is about right.
Results will not be dramatic, but they will be noticeable.
If you feel that you’re ready to step it up a gear, you could consider running the following intermediate cycle instead.
This cycle is still very tolerable and will provide much more noticeable results.
Again, injections should be performed every other day.
With this cycle, you should aim for between 300mg and 500mg per week.
This next cycle is for those of you using Masteron Enanthate.
With this cycle, you should inject yourself twice each week.
Dosages here should be between 400mg and 600mg per week.
So, to make it easy for you, your first injection of the week should be 200mg or 300mg, and your second injection should also be 200mg or 300mg.
Like all steroid-related articles, we know it wouldn’t be complete without us taking a detailed look at some of the side effects associated with this steroid.
Though this steroid is fairly well tolerated when compared with others, it is still a steroid and it still poses numerous risks.
Here’s a look at some common side effects associated with Masteron.
If you are genetically predisposed to hair loss, I.E, if baldness or hair loss runs in your family, taking this steroid, could speed up the rate in which your hair falls out.
It won’t make regular individuals bald, but it can speed up the rate at which you lose your precious locks.
Another possible side effect of this steroid is suppressed hair growth.
Basically, if you are growing your hair you may want to give this steroid a miss as it will likely cause your hair to grow at a much slower rate.
If however, you wish to save money on haircuts, as your hair will be growing at a much slower rate, you’ll likely save yourself a decent amount.
Okay, we’ve all heard about ‘roid rage’ but is there any truth to it?
If the TV shows are to be believed, using steroids will cause mild-mannered and polite young boys to transform into angry psychopaths.
That is not the case at all.
Steroids can enhance certain moods and emotions, so if you normally feel slightly irritated at little things, steroids could cause you to feel more irritated than usual, which makes steroids bad.
Using this steroid could cause you to feel slightly more emotional than usual, and you may experience mood swings, so just bear that in mind.
One of the worse side effects of this steroid is the fact that it has been found to suppress the natural production of testosterone within the body.
In fact, some steroid cycles including this drug can even result in a complete shut down of the testosterone-producing system.
When this occurs, medical attention must be sought out and it may result in the individual being forced to receive testosterone replacement therapy for the rest of their days.
This is why PCT is so important.
Other than the pain of injecting of any kind of injectable steroids, the other major downside to injecting steroids as opposed to consuming them orally is the fact that injections are more susceptible to infection.
All it takes is one wrong injection, or one slightly dirty needle or injection site, and you run the risk of suffering from an infected injection site.
This can be very painful, it may result in surgery being required, and in extreme cases, it could result in the loss of limbs.
Yes, we know we’ve already looked at a few sample Masteron cycle, but now just to refresh your memory we’ll very quickly go over the required dosages for this drug.
Per week, you should aim for between 200mg and 600mg.
The exact amount you consume will depend on which cycle you are following and what you’re looking to get from your cycle.
First off, when it comes to steroids and post cycle therapy, PCT is always required.
As Masteron does not aromatize, estrogenic side effects are less likely.
Therefore, Nolvadex should be sufficient enough when it comes to your PCT.
In terms of dosages, you should run Nolva at 40mgs per day for 4 weeks, so:
Nolva – 40/40/40/40
