Natty Nick Rodriguez Names The Best Stero*d for Jiu-Jitsu

2x ADCC silver medalist Nick Rodriguez prides himself in being a natural athlete, unlike his nemesis Gordon Ryan.

In a recent podcast episode, Nick Rodriguez and prominent strength & conditioning coach Vincent Iuzzolino discussed PED and were asked what is in their opinion the best steroid for Jiu-Jitsu.

They named two steroids that stick out above the rest.

When it comes to performance enhancement in competitive jiu-jitsu, two of the most effective anabolic steroids are Epistane (EPO) and Drostanolone propionate. These two compounds can provide significant benefits for jiu-jitsu athletes.

Epistane, also known as EPO, is a designer steroid that provides many of the same benefits as more traditional anabolic steroids. It promotes rapid muscle growth, increased strength and power, and faster recovery from intense training. The increased muscle mass and strength from EPO can help jiu-jitsu athletes dominate their opponents and overpower holds. However, EPO use also comes with risks of side effects like elevated blood pressure, liver damage, and hormonal imbalance.

Drostanolone propionate, commonly sold under the brand name Masteron, is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It promotes significant increases in strength and endurance without causing drastic water retention. The added endurance from Masteron can be particularly valuable for jiu-jitsu athletes who are involved in long, grueling matches. In addition, the hard, dry muscle gains from Masteron may improve a jiu-jitsu athlete’s physique and esthetic appeal. However, like all anabolic steroids, Masteron can lead to side effects such as hair loss, acne, and cardiovascular strain.

In summary, while EPO and Masteron provide many performance benefits for jiu-jitsu athletes, their use also carries risks. Athletes must weigh the potential advantages against the health consequences and legal implications of anabolic steroid use. A well-designed training program, proper nutrition, and adequate recovery remain the safest and most sustainable ways to improve jiu-jitsu performance over the long term.
