Methasterone, also known as methyldrostanolone and known by the nickname Superdrol, is a synthetic and orally active anabolic–androgenic steroid (AAS) which was never marketed for medical use. It was brought to the black market, instead, in a clandestine fashion as a "designer steroid."
When looking at the effects of Superdrol, the best way to describe the steroid as is a total body transforming product. Through its marketing campaign it was touted as being a more powerful mass builder than Anadrol, hence the name Superdrol; a play on words “Super Anadrol.” However, athletes who have used both will attest the effects of Superdrol will in no way lead to mass gains even comparable to Anadrol. However, significant gains in lean tissue can be made so as long as adequate calories are consumed. A gain of 5-10lbs is more than possible and will not be accompanied by the water retention Anadrol often brings. The individual should also find he is able to make cleaner off-season gains due to the effects of Superdrol promoting a stronger metabolism. This is not to say body fat cannot be gained, but you should be able to make better use of your caloric surplus when Superdrol is in play.
The effects of Superdrol can also be very beneficial to the dieting athlete as a cutting steroid. This compound will greatly preserve lean tissue during a caloric deficit, a key component to successful dieting. In order to lose body fat we must burn more calories than we consume. This puts lean tissue at risk as the body will take what it needs to meet its energy demands from anywhere it can get it. Due to the body’s natural survival instinct, it will often take energy from muscle tissue rather than body fat. The key to successful dieting is ensuring that not only is fat lost but the lean tissue we hold is preserved. The effects of Superdrol will ensure this goal is met. Through the effects of Superdrol the individual should also notice greatly improved conditioning in terms of a dryer, harder look. This isn’t all that surprising when we consider this steroid is in many ways oral Masteron, a steroid well known for promoting such traits.
Regardless of your reason for use, bulking or cutting, the effects of Superdrol will improve recovery and muscular endurance. We cannot call it the strongest steroid in this regard but the improvements will be significant, and as with all steroids the most important. You will not tire out as fast allowing for work to be done at a maximal level for longer periods of time. This does not mean training time frames need to be increased, but rather they become more efficient. The entire point behind anabolic steroid use is to take what you’re already doing right and to simply do it better. Then we have recovery, and this is where the effects of Superdrol as with many anabolic steroids become invaluable. Recovery is where progress is made. Progress isn’t actually made in the gym when training. When training we are actually tearing our muscle tissue down, and when we recover this is where it is built, repaired and becomes stronger.
