During the 1970’s and heavily in the 1980’s Masteron become very popular among competitive bodybuilders. In fact, it has come to be viewed as an essential for contest prep for many bodybuilders and is a common favorite among recreational bodybuilders during their cutting cycles. Due to the Propionate ester that is attached Masteron must be injected at minimum three times per week with an every other day schedule being the most efficient. Because of the need for frequent injections and high demand for the steroid, many underground labs began manufacturing the Drostanolone hormone with the Enanthate ester attached. The new combination become very prominent in the early 2000’s and as such Masteron Enanthate was born. Masteron Enanthate is the same anabolic steroid as Masteron Propionate; the hormone itself has not been changed. The only difference in the two compounds is the attached ester, which affects the drug’s active life and release into the body.
