Masteron 101

Masteron is primarily used to give your muscle a granite hard, grainy look to them that no other steroid can duplicate. I really would categorize Masteron as a pre-contest drug.

Masteron is not very effective unless you’re already very lean. It’s not the type of compound you want to take if you’re over 10% body fat as you’ll see very little benefit from it, but when you’re already lean Masteron can make you look NASTY HARD!

Masteron is a steroid that just provides that finishing touch to an already polished physique, it’s that “icing on the cake” steroid. This compound is not one I’ve done a lot simply because I do not see the cost to benefit ratio unless I’m preparing for a bodybuilding competition.

Masteron Cycle: Length and Dosage

Masteron (Drostanolone) is expensive and most commonly dosed at 100 mg/ml.

Masteron is best used for cycles of no longer than 8 weeks in dosages of 300-600 mg/week.

It’s most effective at 400-600 mg/week but I’ve gotten by on 300 mg/week plenty of times.

The only other situation in which I’d run Masteron is if I was on testosterone replacement and using a milder dosage of Masteron for a longer duration that the last 6-8 weeks before a bodybuilding contest.

For those using Masteron in longer cycles alongside testosterone replacement or in lower amounts, don’t expect to see much from it.

Masteron is something that is mild enough to be used for 12 – 15 week long runs and I’ve personally used it as long as 20 weeks before at 300 mg/week alongside 200mg/wk of Testosterone Cypionate.

Since it’s usually only dosed at 100 mg/ml and pricey, my advice is using Masteron pre-contest is to roll with 300 mg/week for a few weeks and then bump it up to 500 mg/week the next few weeks leading into the contest.

That’s what I used to do anyways and it worked well for me!

Masteron Side Effects

  • Masteron does not aromatize, it causes no water retention and it acts like its own aromatase inhibitor.
  • Ancillary products like Arimadex, Aromasyn, and Arimistane often times are not needed if Masteron is in the mix.
  • If there is one drawback I’ve found with using Masteron it’s that my hair falls out. This shouldn’t be an issue if you don’t have a predisposed hair loss problem, but if you do then Masteron can accelerate the process (most of the time if your grandfather on your mothers side was losing hair… then you have a higher chance of losing hair as well).

Masteron Propionate vs. Masteron Enanthate

Stick with the tried and true, go with Masteron propionate when it comes to Drostanolone (Masteron).

I know a lot of these underground labs are constantly coming up with different esters and blends but I just don’t see the point in fixing something if it’s not broken to begin with.

90% of people have no business even using Masteron in the first place.

It’s only beneficial to get that granite hard look that comes at the very end of a diet and closing in on bodybuilding competition.

The only other steroid that comes close to giving you this harder look would be Halotestin which is very toxic.

Sample Masteron Cycle (pre-contest)

Sample Cycle Weeks 1 – 12: 300 mg/week of testosterone propionate, 600 mg/week equipoise (drop test prop & equipoise 10 days away from competition)

Sample Cycle Weeks 1 – 10 only: 75 mg Trenbolone every other day (which personally I no longer use but the stuff definitely works!)

Sample Cycle Weeks 5 – 12: 300 mg/week Masteron (increase to 500 mg/week the last 2 weeks before event), 50 mg/day of Winstrol

Masteron Post Cycle Therapy

HCG @ 2500 iu/week for 2 weeks in a row, beginning the day after your last injection (2 shots/week @ 1250 iu each)

Arimadex beginning day after your last shot @ 1/2 mg daily of Arimadex for 20 days

Clomid @ 100 mg/day days 1 – 10, 50 mg/day on days 11 – 20, then discontinue.

  1. Good Read.

    What would a competition cycle look like that is safe on the hair line and not extremely toxic?

  2. Just finished phase one of my 24 week cycle of 500Prop, 500EQ . Just started 400MG of Mast two weeks ago and continued the 500 prop….can I add Primo in here? will it add to the tightening up? or should I wait to run Primo with 500Prop six weeks from now. I plan on running 600mgs a week with 500Prop to finish cycle. I also run apex .5 eod and T3 75mcgs since last week. I’m about 5′ 9″ 217lbs, about 10% BF.

  3. Clarification on my previous question: I Just finished phase one (8 weeks) of my 26 week cycle. 500Prop with 500EQ per week . Just started phase 2 ( weeks 9-17) 400MG per wk of Mast and the 500 per wk of Prop..….can I add Primo in here too? will it add to the tightening up? or should I wait to run Primo with 500Prop six weeks from now phase 3 (weeks 18-26). I plan on running 600mgs a week of Primo with 500Prop to finish cycle. I also run adex .5 eod and T3 75mcgs since last week. I’m about 5′ 9″ 217lbs, about 10% BF. Can Primo and Mast run effectively together with Prop? example 600mgPrimo, 400mg Mast and 400-500mgs Primo per week?

    • You can run them together but you may find they’re hard on your hairline if you’re prone to losing hair genetically. The combination of them took a toll on my receding hairline much more so than just running the primo. I went 500/500 on primo and masteron respectively, I did 100mg of each mon-fri and once a week I did a cc of test 200. Fuck yea I got hard as hell!!

  4. Thanks Joe, Your responses are great…I have no hair issues… least I didn’t get any yet I’m on Mast now 4 weeks 400-500mg a week. I have to do a One on One with you soon.

    Thanks, JimPro

    • yea, masteron won’t get you unless you have a genetic predisposition to hair loss and I do because my mothers father had it. Oh well, I could give a damn at this point

  5. Hi, im 56 years old, on trt , running 250mg of test e a week, bodtfat around 11%. want to run masteron to get harder, leaner and more vascular. what dosage should i run and for how long?

    • He Literally wrote exactly whst you’re asking for in the article…. He broke it down saying that the BEST dosage he has found is from 400-600mg a week of mast P….Also… depending on your financial situation, I will add, if youd like to toss some LEAN muscle gains on to add Parabolan (Tren Hexx) at 3-400mg/week but only run up to 5-6 weeks max, I would personally toss 600mg a week of EQ to the mix the Whole time as well and if possible, I personally would add 3 IU’s a day of HGH for as long as you can afford it, but NO SHORTER than 3 Months…. if that doesnt get ya where you want to be with the quickness… You are doing something wrong…. whether it be your diet, your sleep, your training or all of the above….

      Of course… always consult your physician… blah blahhh blaaaaahh you know the deal… haha. But really, get a check up to ensure your liver values are all solid before starting a cycle with multiple AAS… Also… Tren Hexx(parabolan) is highly hepatoxic…(tough on the liver…) so thst is why you shouldnt pass the liver values test up… its just lazy… also… if you can manage… I would get another test of values after stopping parabolan after 4-6 weeks and if your values are solid… you could even toss some Winstrol in there towards the end to REALLY push that Solid/ripped physique…

      so Ill put it together more comprehensively…. i know Im aalllll over the place on this here…

      But for SOLID lean gains and a finished SOLID RIPPED LOOKING PHYSIQUE WITH MINIMAL FAT %… It would go like this….
      week 1-5 Test 250mg/week Parabolan 4-600mg/week and Equipoise 600mg/week
      HgH 21iu/week
      weeks 5-10
      Test 250mg/week
      mast P 500mg/week
      Equipoise 600mg/week
      winny 350-700mg/week
      HgH 21IU/week
      HGH continue for as kong as possible… ideally for 3 more months after stopping your AAS cycle… WHILE doing your pct

      I hope this helps or gives you some more understanding of dosage ranges roughly….
      Remember be safe! AND DONT SLACK ON ALL THE OTHER ELEMENTS THAT NATURAL BODY BUILDERS have to have on point for the best possible outcome! and youll be amazed at whst your body will do!

  6. I just finished a short masteron propionate only cycle today. 100ml every other day. I’ve read conflicting information that says I need to do PCT even though I didn’t stack the mast with anything else. I only did a three week cycle. If I need to do PCT, what’s your recommendation?
