Drostanolone Enanthate has the only difference from Drostanolone Propionate: it is more suitable for long-term cycles. The usual dosage is 400 mg per week or more. Masteron Enanthate injections can be done only once a week (nevertheless, it is recommended to divide the weekly dose into multiple injections).
Drostanolone Enanthate, as well as Propionate, has a number of side effects such as prostate hypertrophy, aggression, acne, alopecia. This steroid is very popular in bodybuilding: it is effective in increasing the rate of physical performance improvement.
As a rule, Drostanolone Enanthate is used in long-term cycles in order to gain as better muscle mass as possible. It can be perfectly combined with Testosterone and Trenbolone. The main effects include: quality muscle mass without water retention, reduction of subcutaneous fat, increase in muscle density, athletic performance improvement.
What is the connection between Masteron and dihydrotestosterone (DHT)?
First of all, one should know that dihydrotestosterone is an androgenic hormone, which is converted from testosterone. Thus, an increase in blood testosterone level via pharmacological preparations will correspondingly increase DHT levels. Since Masteron is derived from DHT, it is logical to expect an increase of testosterone in the body in case if you use this drug. Masteron will interact with SHBG and lead to higher testosterone levels in the blood. That is why it helps increase lean body mass during the cycle. Accordingly, one should expect an increase in libido, strength and muscle mass. But there is always another side. We are talking about the side effects that may occur with Drostanolone Enanthate. Do not forget about the androgenic side effects that occur with higher levels of DHT.
Masteron Enanthate (Drostanolone Enanthate) effects
Unlike Testosterone, Masteron is a drug with a rather narrow spectrum of activity. Masteron Enanthate works well with other anabolic agents. It helps increase testosterone levels in the body to allow the athletes achieve their goals in bodybuilding. A more complete picture can be obtained when looking at Masteron effects:
- Good fat burning effect is the “trump card” of Masteron Enanthate, making it a distinct priority during the cutting phase, as well as during the pre-competition period. Based on the experience of numerous athletes, it can be said that this drug may reduce body fat up to 8% of its original level. But of course, do not forget that such probability is not so high without a proper diet.
- Mild stimulation of muscle growth. On the one hand, this effect is not for those hoping to become bigger and stronger and on the other – Masteron Enanthate is a good choice for those who want to improve athletic performance and avoid excessive weight gain. Of course, muscle gains will be more significant in combination with other drugs.
- Inhibition of aromatase enzyme activity (presumably). This means that the drug does not cause typical estrogenic side effects. By the way, it is thanks to this effect that Masteron was used in malignant breast tumors (it was removed in connection with the ability to provoke masculinization).
- Increasing muscle density. The drug does not cause water retention, but has a slight diuretic effect. That is why it is ideal for bodybuilders prior to contest preparation.
Side effects of Masteron Enanthate (Drostanolone Enanthate)
Drostanolone Enanthate is able to provoke a sufficiently small number of unpleasant effects, including alopecia (caused by a depressing effect of DHT on the hair follicles). However, this effect is rare among athletes who are not genetically predisposed to hair loss.
Enanthate can lead to prostate hypertrophy associated with increased amount of androgens. Such manifestation may be prevented by taking Finasteride (in extreme cases). Do not forget that like every DHT blocker, Finasteride can block all the effects that make Drostanolone Enanthate a special drug in bodybuilding.
The drug is able to provoke the development of acne (like almost all androgens). The best preventive actions include proper diet and skin degreasing products.
Enanthate therapy is not associated with hepatotoxicity and estrogenic activity (the risk of liver damage, fluid retention and gynecomastia is minimal). Thus, the drug appears to be relatively safe for most men, but potentially harmful for many women (high risk of masculinization).
Based on the things mentioned above, we can say that Masteron Enanthate is a formulation that is not for everyone. However, this also applies to Winstrol, Trenbolone and other drugs with high androgenic activity.
Masteron Enanthate (Drostanolone Enanthate) doses
As for how to use Masteron Enanthate, the athletes show the best results at a dose of 400-500 mg per week. Higher doses do not provide a proportional increase of physiological parameters. On the other hand, the chance of unwanted side effects will be definitely higher.
As for Masteron Propionate, the drug is used every other day or three times a week, while Enanthate – once in 7 days. This form is becoming increasingly popular among young athletes who prefer longer esters. It is recommended to start the therapy after consultation with a doctor.
When using Masteron Propionate, the cycle will last 8 to 10 weeks. As for Enanthate, the cycle duration is approximately 10 to 12 weeks. Extremely long courses involving high doses and combinations with other steroids should include gonadotropin (to prevent testicular atrophy).
Drostanolone Enanthate also goes well with almost all anabolic steroids. Many athletes use this drug in combination with Testosterone Propionate or Enanthate to obtain the so-called recomp effect (fat burning effect concurrently with the growth of lean body mass). In this case, the ideal dose will be of 100-200 mg per week.
As for the PCT, Clomid (clomiphene citrate) will be the right choice for you: 50 mg for 30 days and then 25 mg for 15 days. Otherwise, higher doses of clomiphene citrate may be useful. The post cycle therapy should also include vitamins, chondroprotectors and other remedial additives.
