About Drostanolone 100
Drostanolone Propionate is probably one of the most interesting cutting steroids used by athletes. It’s most frequently used in competitive bodybuilding cycles and often considered essential to contest preparation.
Drostanolone Propionate isn’t well-known for promoting gains in lean muscle mass. It has never been used for muscle wasting in a therapeutic sense and will almost always be found in cutting plans among performance athletes. It can, however, promote significant boosts in strength, which could prove beneficial to an athlete who may not necessarily be looking for raw mass.
Without question, the effects of Drostanolone Propionate will be displayed in the most efficient way during a cutting cycle. However, for the effects to be truly appreciated, the individual will need to be extremely lean. This is why the hormone will most commonly be found at the end of bodybuilding contest prep cycles as the individual should already be fairly lean at this stage. The added Drostanolone Propionate will help him lose that last bit of fat and ensure his physique appears as hard as can be.
As a bulking agent, the effects of Drostanolone Propionate will prove to be rather week. It is possible the hormone could provide gains in mass similar to Primobolan, which won’t be that strong either, if the total dose was high enough. However, the relative gain in size will be very moderate.
Drostanolone 100 administration
The standard Drostanolone Propionate dose for adult men will normally fall in the 300-400mg per week range. Normally, this will mean an injection of 100mg every other day for a total of 6-8 weeks. This does not mean 6-8 weeks represents the total cycle, but this is a common time frame for the Drostanolone Propionate portion of a stack. Some may alternatively choose to split their dose up into a daily injection schedule, but every other day should suffice.
For the female athlete, 50mg per week should be more than enough for a total of 4-6 weeks. Some women may find doses closer to 100mg per week to be justified if they tolerate the hormone well. Doses of this range should be controllable for most women, but individual sensitivity must be kept in mind. Doses that go above the 100mg per week mark or beyond 4-6 weeks of use will more than likely produce virilization symptoms at some level.
Drostanolone side effects
While some think that there is low aromatization with Drostanolone Propionate, it still has a significant androgenic side-effects that one should expect when using this steroid. This may include bouts of oily skin, acne, and body / facial hair growth.
The side effects of Drostanolone Propionate can include those of an androgenic nature — acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. This steroid is well-known for greatly enhancing male pattern baldness in sensitive men far more than many anabolic steroids.
Due to its androgenic nature, Drostanolone Propionate can produce virilization symptoms in women — body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. Drostanolone is not a primary recommended steroid for female athletes. If it is used and related symptoms begin to show, discontinue use immediately and they will fade away. If the symptoms are ignored, it is very possible they may set in and become irreversible.
Drostanolone Propionate can have a significant effect on cholesterol. This can result in an increase in LDL (bad) cholesterol, as well as a decrease in HDL (good) cholesterol. The total affect on cholesterol will, however, not be as strong as often found in many oral steroids. It is also possible that Drostanolone Propionate could have a slight negative impact on blood pressure, but this will be a non-issue for most. Due to the cholesterol effects of Drostanolone Propionate, cholesterol management becomes very important with this steroid. If you already suffer from high cholesterol you should not use this anabolic steroid. If you are healthy enough for use, maintaining a cholesterol friendly lifestyle is very important. Not only does this mean a healthy diet, but it should be one that includes plenty of omega fatty acids, is limited in saturated fats as well as simple sugars. Plenty of cardiovascular activity is also advised.
Drostanolone Propionate will significantly suppress natural testosterone production, making testosterone therapy important when using this steroid. Failure to include exogenous testosterone will lead most men to a low testosterone condition, which not only comes with numerous possible symptoms but is also extremely unhealthy. As most will use Drostanolone Propionate in a cutting cycle, it’s very common not to want to use a lot of testosterone due to the high levels of estrogenic activity it can provide. If this is the case, you will find a low dose of 100-200mg per week of testosterone (Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Propionate or Testosterone Enanthate) to be enough to combat suppression and give you the needed testosterone. Once Drostanolone Propionate is discontinued and all exogenous steroidal hormones have cleared your system, natural testosterone production will begin again. Prior levels will not return to normal over night, this will take several months. Due to the slow recovery, Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans are often recommended.
