Masteron will significantly suppress natural testosterone production making exogenous 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 Masteron 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 to be enough to combat suppression and give you the needed testosterone.
Once Masteron 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. This will speed up the recovery greatly; however, it won’t bring your levels back to their peak, this will still take time. A PCT plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise and significantly cut down on the total recovery time. This natural recovery does assume no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) through improper supplementation practices.
I’m 35, 6′ and 210 lbs. started really training at 25 weighing 158lbs. I’ll be honest my diet has only ever been great for a short time. I understand the importance of proper nutrition. I’ve always loved being a natural athlete but I’m 35 now and It’s time to consider some alternatives. I’m looking to get in the best shape of my life but I also have no plans on competing in bodybuilding. The gym will always be a part of my life. So if I choose to go this route I doubt there will ever be any turning back. My questions for you…what do you recommend for my first cycle? I’m not looking to get huge over time. And what do you recommend if I choose to continue to cycle in the future? I’m looking to get and maintain a solid aesthetic physique and grow gradually over time and stay as healthy as possible.
