While the Masteron steroid is most commonly found in the Propionate form Masteron-Enanthate is also available but most will find it to be a little rarer than the original form. As we will see there is very little difference between the two forms, in-fact the benefits are identical with each and while this is common in the steroid world it’s even more so here. For example; Nandrolone anabolic steroids most commonly come in Decanoate and Phenylpropionate form and while the mode of action is very similar in both there are some slight significant differences in the two compounds; this can’t be said to such a large degree regarding Drostanolone steroids. Nevertheless there is a difference but it only revolves around the ester and does not provide significant advantage. Further, as Masteron was developed to fight breast cancer you will find Masteron-Enanthate versions to be a performance based medication only and largely only on the black market.
Masteron, officially known as Drostanolone is a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid most commonly found in a Propionate version but it is the Enanthate version we are concerned with here. Structurally Masteron-Enanthate is almost identical to Masteron-Propionate, both forms are DHT derived Drostanolone, both exist by the added 2a-methly grouping with the only difference being in the attached ester.
While both Masteron forms are very similar Masteron itself holds a bit of a unique place in the anabolic steroid world as it is one of the few originally designed for medical purpose steroids that was not designed to treat anemia or muscle wasting diseases such as aids or cancer. Masteron exist on the basis of the fight against breast cancer and once we understand the hormone this will make perfect sense. The number one enemy of breast cancer patients is estrogen and for this reason many SERM’s and AI’s are often given to breast cancer patients as they have the ability to reduce and block estrogen buildup. Masteron also possess this trait; as a DHT based anabolic steroid you will find this steroid does not aromatize and in-fact appears to have a decent anti-aromatase effect. At one point in time the combination of Masteron and Tamoxifen-Citrate was rather common place in breast cancer patients as Tamoxifen will actively block estrogen from binding at the breast receptors and Masteron actively reduce the amount in the body. However, such practice has largely fallen out of popularity as most attending physicians will prescribe aromatase inhibitors “AI’s” more frequently as they are far more powerful and can reduce estrogen dramatically.
For the performance enhancer this anti-aromatase effect is a particular interest as it will affect the other steroids in the system that do aromatize in a positive manner. As this is a strong attribute of the Masteron-Enanthate steroid, by far it is also the most significant in many ways. Masteron is an anabolic steroid with both low anabolic and androgenic properties; while mildly androgenic it does however possess stronger androgenic traits then would be expected. As we discuss the benefits of Masteron-Enanthate you’ll be able to easily see how the androgenic traits coupled with the anti-aromatase nature might benefit the performance enhancer.
When examining Masteron-Enanthate we find it is one of the few exceptions to the rules of primary and secondary roles. For example; testosterone is a solid hormone that will serve any cycle for any purpose and many steroids, such as Anadrol, while primarily a bulking steroid carry with them secondary characteristics that make them useful for cutting; Masteron does not possess this trait.
The Benefits of Masteron-Enanthate:
The benefits of Masteron-Enanthate can largely be summed up in three words, lean and hard. For the performance enhancer and outside of a breast cancer patient largely it will only be performance enhancers of a bodybuilding nature who supplement with Masteron in the first place as it is an excellent physique transforming steroid but it is not a miracle in a bottle. Even though it has a rather mildly low androgenic rating the story it tells is rather different as it will harden one up quite decently. Further, as is by its nature Masteron-Enanthate effects overall metabolic activity by directly stimulating lipolysis; no, it is not the only steroid that presents such benefits nor is it the strongest one but these are largely the traits.
As stated, this is not a miracle steroid; a good steroid absolutely but it holds nowhere near the power of say Trenbolone that also greatly promotes hardness and lipolysis among many other traits. However, Masteron-Enanthate is far milder than Trenbolone but before you get too excited you need to understand an important fact. If you’re sitting there at 20% body-fat Masteron-Enanthate is not going to do a lot for you; to benefit from this steroid you need to be fairly lean to begin with as the effects won’t be all that noticeable unless you are. Yes, it may indeed help you lose a little fat if you are at a high percentage of body-fat but there are other things you can use and other things you can do that will be far more beneficial and far more worth your time and money. To truly benefit from the Masteron-Enanthate hormone we need to be below 8% and most will find below 6% to be even better. If we are this lean when we begin using the steroid the hardening affect brought on by both its androgenic nature and ability to have an anti-aromatase effect will be pretty close to amazing. Further, for the competitive bodybuilder looking to drop that last little bit of fat this hormone can be even more useful as Masteron may be the final ingredient missing to do just that.
The Side-Effects of Masteron-Propionate:
As Masteron-Enanthate is a member of the anabolic androgenic steroid family it will carry with it a potential for adverse side-effects but always remember potential does not mean guaranteed, it simply means there is a chance and the probability here is rather low. How low; many of the over the counter medications you buy in your local drug store have more serious potential side-effects than Masteron-Enanthate and while this is common regarding most anabolic androgenic steroids in general it is even more applicable with Masteron.
The most common side-effects of Masteron-Enanthate are going to be two of the most common DHT related side-effects and they include acne and hair-loss and in all honesty that’s about it. Masteron-Enanthate does not aromatize and side-effects such as Gynecomastia and water retention are of no concern; it does not appear to have a strong impact on your lipid profiles and is all-in-all a very mild steroid. However, it should be noted that while Masteron does appear to be a very mild and side-effect friendly anabolic steroid it is one of the few anabolic steroids that is lacking in information regarding side-effects as the time and effort has never been spent. As for hair-loss, if you lose any hair while using Masteron-Enanthate you were going to go bald anyway; Masteron just sped it up. If you’re not genetically predisposed to baldness Masteron will have no effect on your hairline. In a sense we can say the same thing of acne; your individual sensitivity will determine the extent if any; most will have no problem at all and won’t see a single zit. However, if you are sensitive to acne in any degree you may have some bumps pop up; keeping your skin extra clean can really help you with this and up your odds in-terms of protecting your skin. All-in-all we can safely say Masteron-Enanthate is one of the safest anabolic steroids of all.
As Masteron-Enanthate really only serves the purpose of leaning out and hardening up you will generally only see the steroid used in the competitive bodybuilding world and by those of a performance enhancing nature who do so only to look and feel better; the gym rat. You will not find a lot of Masteron being used in the performance athletic world; there’s not a lot of purpose for the football or baseball player or any other on the field athlete; sure, some of them may dabble with Masteron but most will choose other anabolics that serve their purpose. However, for the bodybuilder this anabolic steroid can be the difference between first and second place in a show; after all, while there are many factors to being a successful bodybuilder on stage hardness and ultimate leanness are two of the primary concerns. Ultimately this is one of the few anabolic androgenic steroids we can almost aptly label a pure bodybuilding steroid.
Masteron-Propionate Cycles & Doses:
While Masteron-Propionate is very fast acting and short lived in duration the same cannot be said about the large ester Masteron-Enanthate form and due to this fact one will find the Enanthate version may be injected far less than its Propionate brother. Masteron-Propionate must necessarily be injected every other day but the Enanthate form is well-suited at a mere two injections per week. This is perhaps the only real distinct advantage of the Enanthate form over the Propionate form, one can inject far less frequently; however, it may not be as much of an advantage as you think. As Masteron is for all intense purposes a steroid that will generally be used while cutting, especially at the end of a contest bodybuilding cycle, most individuals will be using other short ester based anabolics and injecting on an everyday to every other day basis to begin with. If this is the case you’re better off simply going with Masteron-Propionate as it is generally a purer substance; Masteron-Enanthate in itself is not the problem but many of the labs who make it seem to have a hard time with it.
For the standard bodybuilding dose most will run approximately 300-400mg per week of the compound with 600mg per week generally being considered a high-end dose and about as high as you’ll ever need to go and most will never need to go this high. You could run less than 300mg but 200mg per week would be the minimum to see any results and in most people 200mg won’t provide that much of a bump. Most bodybuilders and gym rats will find Masteron-Enanthate to be a welcomed addition to a stack when dieting and in most cases the final 6-8 weeks of the cycle.
