MK-2866 Ostarine SARMSSARMS can be cycled and utilized in many different ways. The best way to utilize them are running them as a bridge in between cycles. A bridge is the time when you have completed PCT from a previous cycle and are recovering in preparation for your next cycle. This can be a very trying time for many, as they can experience depression, loss of size, strength, motivation and hard earned gains from previous cycles. SARMS truly shine at this time. SARMS can be ran during this period and can not only help to maintain gains but can add to them or clean them up immensely. Many users have a better feeling while on SARMS than they do on cycle.

It is important to understand how to use SARMS and how to run them properly. SARMS are nowhere near as suppressive as anabolics and are not toxic but they can have some suppression and it is imperative to run the proper supports along side of them to ensure that recovery is smooth and efficient. SARMS do not aromatize but the SARM ostarine (mk-2866) has shown to cause possible gyno issues for some, so it is important to be prepared for this. A typical, and most effective SARMS cycle is ran for 8 weeks. A mini pct is required after a SARMS cycle. This pct is only necessary for a period of three weeks and a SERM is not required. Recovery is very quick and a user is typically recovered a week after the mini pct is completed. It is important to take time off of SARMS after a cycle is complete so that the body does not become accustomed to their use thus taking away from their effectiveness.

There is a support stack that I have put together that will completely cover a user for a full 8 week cycle and the three week mini pct. This is a complete support stack and the explanation of each product and how to use it as well as ordering information can be found here: http://needtobuildmuscle.com/store/Test-boosting-PCT/Support-Stack-p286.html

The only time a mini pct would not be needed is if a user ran GW-501516 as a stand alone cycle. Any other use of SARMS will require a mini pct and will absolutely need to have supports ran alongside.

SARMS can be run alongside any anabolic, but it is not going to be an optimal way to use them. There will competition amongst receptors and this will also take away the opportunity to utilize SARMS as a bridge. Even if a user is on TRT or cruising, SARMS can be utilized in a bridge like fashion. I am going to provide different types of SARMS cycles that can be utilized for the different types of goals that you may have.

THE TRIPLE STACK

GW-501516 SARMSThis is the most commonly used SARMS stack. Quite simply, this stack can be used for any set of goals that you have. The recomping effect on this stack is unbelievable. You can cut on this stack, you can aim for size, you can maintain, you can do it all! Playing with your doses will coordinate with your goals. I like to add albuterol to this stack to add extra endurance and cutting while still being able to hold and add muscle. Here is the stack:

1-8  Ostarine 25 mg day dosed once a day in the a.m.

1-8  S4 50 mg day… split doses… 25 mg in the a.m. and 25 mg in the p.m.

1-8  GW-510516 10-20 mg day… split doses 12 hours apart

1-8  HcGenerate        

1-8  D-spark          

3-8  Albuterol 12-18 mg day

Mini pct  9-12

Hcgenerate ES

NOW, if you want to aim this stack even more towards a bulk, then you can drop ostarine and add LGD-4033. The stack would look like this:

1-8  LGD-4033 10 mg day dosed once a day in the a.m.

1-8  S4 50 mg day… split doses… 25 mg in the a.m. and 25 mg in the p.m.

1-8  GW-510516 10-20 mg day… split doses 12 hours apart

1-8  HcGenerate        

1-8  D-spark          

3-8  Albuterol 12-18 mg day

Mini pct  9-12

Hcgenerate ES

LGD-4033 SARMSI do not recommend using LGD and Ostarine in the same cycle because of their similarities. This would end up being counter productive to your cycle.

Any SARM can be ran as a stand alone or you can add or drop anything that you want. It is important to make sure that you are running ALL of your proper supports and running your mini pct. As previously stated, the ONLY SARM that would not require a mini pct or supports is GW-50156 ran as a stand alone. You must protect yourself and give yourself the proper recovery on any other SARMS cycle. These are the most effective ways to run SARMS. There are several combinations you can run, but the triple stack is where SARMS are at their best and provide the best results.

Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMS)

FACTS AND COMPARISONS TO ANABOLICS

MK-2866 Ostarine SARMSThe biological actions of androgens are primarily mediated by the androgen receptor. The androgen receptor is expressed in target tissues as the prostate, skeletal muscle, liver, central nervous system, with the highest expression being produced in the prostate and adrenal gland. Men with rare mutations of the androgen receptor have lower lean mass and higher body fat than normal men. The physiological importance of the androgen receptor has been demonstrated as animal studies that administer androgen receptor antagonist (drugs that block the actions of androgens binding to its receptor) during muscle overload have suppressed muscle hypertrophy. This suggests that the androgen pathway has a significant effect in exercise-induced muscle hypertrophy and emphasizes the importance of the increase in the number of androgen receptors in exercised muscle. Additionally, when scientists administered the androgen antagonist flutamide, to rats undergoing puberty resulted in a suppressed muscle growth. Researchers developed SARMS to minimize the side effects of testosterone y promoting full anabolic activity in muscle and bone, while minimizing the undesirable side effects on prostate, hair, skin, and without affecting sperm production and sex drive.

SARMS have full anabolic activity in muscle and bone, yet have minimal effect the on prostate. SARMS are highly specific to the androgen receptor as they have a 1000-fold less binding affinity for any other receptor. SARMS are orally available and so far seem to have minimal effect on the liver. SARMS have a number of beneficial effects in bone, muscle, and sexual function independent from the conversion of androgens into estrogens.

SARMS: Anabolic Activity in Muscle and Bone with Minimal Effect on the Prostate.

GW-501516-SARMSTestosterone induced increase in muscle mass is associated with hypertrophy of both type I and type II fibers and increased satellite cell activation. The effect of testosterone is thought to be mediated by the androgen receptor as muscle growth factors in vitro (in test tubes) are blocked by the androgen antagonist bicalutamide (blocks the actions of testosterone from binding to the androgen receptor), indicating that the effects of testosterone are mediated thru the androgen receptor pathway. The androgen receptor signaling pathway enhances the expression of myogenin (Myogenin is an important mediator of muscle growth) and accelerates the expression of muscle growth factors. AR expression is widespread throughout the body and androgens play a desirable role in promoting bone strength, increasing muscle mass, decreasing fat tissue, and increasing muscle strength. A study in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology reported that when resistance trained men had muscle biopsies taken the greatest predictor of males 1-RM strength was not testosterone but the androgen receptor content in the thigh muscle. SARMS are muscle specific compared to testosterone. For example, one study reported that oral doses of SARMS exhibited a >50-fold selectivity for muscle over the prostate. Testosterone propionate had only a 2-fold selectivity for muscle versus prostate. Other studies have reported that the SARM S4 produced greater anabolic activity in muscle than testosterone propionate but had less androgenic activity on the prostate. Additionally, a study published in the journal of Endocrinology reported that SARMS were just as anabolic in muscle compared to testosterone cypionate but less androgenic. In that study, testosterone cypionate increased prostate weight and muscle growth in a dose dependent manner, meaning the more testosterone they used the more muscle hypertrophy was experienced but with similar increases in prostate growth. SARMS showed more anabolic activity in muscle with minimal stimulation of the prostate. Compared with testosterone cypionate, SARMS were more than 200 times more potent in stimulation of muscle and 80 times more selective for muscle versus prostate. Additionally, both testosterone cypionate and SARMS decreased adipose tissue in a dose dependent manner. The study demonstrated that SARMS has the potential to provide a greater safety delivery than testosterone, mainly with low stimulation of the prostate, yet hyperanabolic effects on muscle tissue. SARMS have also been shown to increase skeletal muscle strength.

SARMS SUMMARY:

S-4 bottle SARMSIt should be noted that testosterone increases muscle mass thru multiple pathways: increasing protein synthesis, increasing GH secretion, increasing IGF-1 levels, increasing satellite cell activation, and increasing androgen receptor concentration in muscle. The androgen receptor binding affinity of steroids is only partly responsible for the androgen receptor mediated effects of both physiological and synthetic steroids. For example, it is well known that some steroids are potent anabolic agents, yet bind to the androgen receptor weakly. Another interesting fact is that testosterone can increase lean body mass and reduce fat mass in androgen-deficient men. The skeletal muscle androgen receptor may exert both receptor dependent (testosterone, DHT) and independent actions (intramuscular IGF-1) in the functionally overloaded muscle, which may be related to growth factor signaling. The androgen receptor in muscle is decreased during aging which may be an important contributing factor to the age related decrease in muscle mass that occurs with aging. The development of SARMS for clinical use is promising based on preclinical data owing to their selective high anabolic activity in muscle. SARMS could be useful for the prevention of many muscle wasting diseases and age related decreases in muscle mass without unwanted side effects associated with testosterone. In addition, SARMS may be prevent or treat prostate enlargement as SARMS is a partial agonist on the prostate. SARMS also lack estrogenic activity and do not under go 5a-reduction so it can’t be converted to DHT. The side effects are minimal and the results speak for themselves. d

Ostarine (MK-2866)

Ostarine (MK-2866)

THE ULTIMATE RECOMPING AGENT AND VERSATILITY KING

MK-2866 Ostarine SARMSOstarine (MK-2866) is a SARM that was developed for the prevention and treatment of muscle wasting. Future plans indicate that it will eventually be prescribed for the prevention of cachexia, atrophy and sarcopenia as well as for Hormone or Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

The way that ostarine works by binding to the androgen receptor demonstrating bone and muscular anabolic activity. Ostarine causes muscle growth by binding and activating the androgen receptor, which alters the expression of genes and increases protein synthesis. Ostarine exerts its anabolic effects on muscle tissue almost exclusively. It also minimizes atrophy during recover periods from surgeries and injuries making it desirable for so many different types of users and situations. Ostarine is extremely effective in maintaining and gaining lean body mass.

Ostarine USES:

Ostarine is extremely versatile and can be used for every type of goal in training. It can be used to bulk, to cut or to recomp. It truly shines as a recomp but provides effects in all three areas.

As a bulker, ostarine has shown to add up to 7 lbs. of lean muscle mass over an 8 week cycle. The optimal dose is 25 mg a day. The half life of ostarine is very long so it only needs to be taken once a day, preferably in the morning. Ostarine is the most anabolic of all the SARMS, so it provides the best chance of muscle gain. The gains that ostarine provides are very keepable and the muscle and size gained is very lean and clean. There is a significant strength increase as well.

As a cutter, ostarine should be dosed at 15-20 mg a day for 8 weeks. Ostarine would primarily fit into a cutting protocol for the maintenance of muscle mass while reducing calories. One of the most disheartening outcomes of cutting is the loss hard earned muscle mass. The drop in metabolic rate and hormone levels (T3, IGF, Testosterone, etc) with the lack of calories is a perfect catabolic environment for loss of muscle tissue. As Ostarine has anabolic effects, user can cut calories without having to worry about muscle or strength loss. Ostarine has also shown noticeable nutrient partitioning effects among users, another reason why it can be of great help when cutting.

Ostarine truly shines during a recomp. Ostarine works particularly well during a recomp because of its nutrient partitioning benefits. Calories are taken from fat stores and calorie intake is fed to the muscle tissue. Many users have shown that when ostarine is consumed at maintenance calories, they are able to lose weight yet still show increases in strength and muscle mass. Although Ostarine is taken orally, it is not methylated and is not toxic to the liver and does not have a negative effect on ones blood pressure. Therefore it can be run for longer than oral steroids. Ostarine can be used up to 12 weeks safely and still provide excellent benefits.

Injury Prevention:

Ostarine also has the benefit of healing as part of its versatility. The effects it provides translate to anabolism in bone and skeletal muscle tissue, which also allows it to be used in a variety of ways, such as treating osteoporosis and in conjunction with drugs that reduce bone density. It has excellent benefits when used for rehabilitation of injuries, especially bone and tendon related injuries.

Doses of 12.5mg per day is recommend for such purposes and improvement in joint movement that can be seen after just 6-8 days.

Estrogen Concerns:

SARMS do not aromatize, conferring all their effects to AR binding and not to metabolic conversion to active androgens/estrogens. However blood work from users has shown a slight elevation in serum estradiol levels (which may be one of the factors in its high effectiveness for treating tendon, ligament, and bone injuries or illnesses.

This elevation is extremely small and is no case for concern. If however you are absolutely concerned about slight increases in Estrogen, you can always opt for low doses AI’s, like aromasin or arimidex for added protection and prevention. The use of D-Spark is highly encouraged as opposed to an AI on cycle. Most instances where there have been gyno concerns are due to users abusing the dosing and exceeding the recommended 25 mg a day… Exceeding 25 mg a day is not advisable and when side effects start to occur.

Slight Suppression:

Ostarine has shown to be slightly suppressive when ran over 4 weeks. It is nothing to be alarmed about and nowhere near like running a steroid. HcGenerate is highly encouraged to be used on cycle to keep suppression to a minimum and to transition into pct smoothly. A 3 week mini pct is required after ostarine use is completed. HcGenerate ES ran for 3 weeks will provide the optimal recovery. A SERM can be used but it not required for pct. Recovery on SARMS is very quick and smooth as long as it is done properly.

Ostarine advantages and benefits:

Ostarine Summary

  • Anabolic even at doses as low as 3mg
  • Great for strength
  • Great for lean mass gains
  • Great for body recomposition
  • Great for endurance (aerobic or anaerobic)
  • Joint healing abilities
  • Half life of circa 24 hours – only once a day dosing required
  • It is non methylated so it is non toxic to the liver or blood pressure
  • Some suppression may be present at doses of 25mg+ run for longer than 4 weeks, however a stringent PCT of prescription SERMs like Nolvadex or Clomid is not necessary.
  • High oral bioavailability without significant damage to your liver as with oral steroids.
  • Great sense of well being while on, (without the aggression which can often detrimentally impact users daily lives).
  • No need for a long time period off between cycles; the recommended time of period for normal steroid cycles would be Time on + PCT, so for a typical 6 week cycle and 4 week PCT, a user would have to wait another 10 weeks afterPCT to start another cycle where SARMS recovery requires minimal rest in between.
  • Ostarine also resulted in a dose-dependent decrease in LDL and HDL cholesterol levels, with the average LDL/HDL ratio for all doses remaining in the low cardiovascular risk category – hence there is little impact on cholesterol values.

GW-501516

GW-501516

THE ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE ENHANCER

GW-501516-SARMSGW501516 (GW1516 or GSK-516) is a drug that acts as a PPARδ modulator. GW501516 is a selective agonist (activator) of the PPARδ receptor. It displays high affinity (Ki = 1 nM) and potency (EC50 = 1 nM) for PPARδ with > 1000 fold selectivity over PPARα and PPARγ. GW 501516 activates AMP-activated protein kinase and stimulates glucose uptake in skeletal muscle tissue.

GW 501516 has been demonstrated to reverse metabolic abnormalities in obese men with pre-diabetic metabolic syndrome, most likely by stimulating fatty acid oxidation. It has been proposed as a potential treatment for obesity and related conditions.

GW has also shown to dramatically increase endurance and recovery. In rats, binding of GW501516 to PPARδ recruits the co activator PGC-1a. The PPARδ/coactivator complex in turn up regulates the expression of proteins involved in energy expenditure.

In obese rhesus monkeys, GW501516 increased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and lowered very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). The mechanism by which PPARδ agonists increase HDL appears to be a result of increased expression of the cholesterol transporter ABCA1.

GW-501516 Uses:

GW has many benefits but has two primary uses. The most common use of GW consists of the extreme amount of endurance and recovery increase. The results with GW use regarding endurance increase are staggering. GW was banned by the WADA (World Anti Doping Association) in 2009 because it provided such a large advantage to its user over the competition. GW acts quickly and the results are drastic. A user can expect to see an endurance increase within a few days of use. The common dosage for these types of results are 10 mg a day but can be taken up to 20 mg a day. Either way, a significant increase in endurance will occur.

The other main use of GW is to aid in fat loss. GW has shown to melt away fat at a rapid pace. Another strong component of GW is that it is non catabolic, meaning it allows a user to lose fat and not have to sacrifice muscle. Many people that are on a diet burning fat are also sacrificing a lot of muscle, but GW allows a user to hold on to much more muscle than a standar fat lass diet or other fat loss compound would allow. GW also shines when ran in conjunction with other SARMS. When stacking GW with Ostarine and S4, users can add lean muscle while still losing weight and body fat. This makes GW highly desirable for many. The most optimal dosage for fat loss is 20 mg a day but users will still be able to receive this benefit at 10 mg a day.

GW 501516 can be ran in 8-12 cycles and can also b ran in conjunction with any SARM, steroid or supplement. As with any other steroid or supplement, it should be cycled properly to avoid any possible side effects and the keep it as effective as possible.

Dosing Timing:

GW also has a very long half life, so it can be dosed once a day or split 12 hours apart. I have found that splitting the dose works nicely. GW is very effective when taken 30-45 minutes prior to working out.

Side effects:

There are constant debates and many studies arguing the potential side effects for a user. There are studies showing that GW has caused cancer in rats while other studies refute it. There is not enough data to validate this substantial of a claim. GW has shown to have little to no side effects. There is no suppression, no toxicity and no other common side effects. The studies that were done were over very long periods of time and not at a dosage that a human would run. GW is a favorite among many.

Benefits of GW 501516:

  • Extreme increases in endurance and recovery
  • Extreme fat melting
  • Long Half Life Making Dosing Optimal
  • Lowering of Bad Cholesterol and Increasing Good Cholesterol
  • Minimal Side Effects
  • Can be ran up to 12 weeks
  • Stacks well with everything
  • Non catabolic
  • Excellent energy
  • Excellent overall sense of well-being and feeling

S4 (Andarine)

S4 (Andarine) – THE ULTIMATE MUSCLE BUILDING CUTTER

S-4 bottle SARMSS4 (ANDARINE) is a SARM that was developed for treatment of muscle wasting, osteoporosis and benign prostatic hypertrophy. S4 is effective in not only maintaining lean body mass, but increasing it while reducing body fat.

The way that S4 works is by binding to the androgen receptor demonstrating bone and muscular anabolic activity. By binding to the androgen receptors, S4 alters the expression of genes and increases protein synthesis. This leads to the building of quality muscle. S4 can produce muscle growth as steroids do without the type of side effects that steroids produce.

S4 has shown the ability to increase lean body mass, reduce body fat, improve skeletal muscle strength and prevent bone loss.

S4 USES:

There are three main uses for S4. These are CUTTING, RECOMPING AND LEAN MUSCLE AND STRENGTH GAINS. S4 truly shines in all three of these aspects.

When it comes to cutting, S4 produces winstrol like effects with masteron type of aesthetics. S4 truly shines aesthetically for the user that has a much lower body fat. The muscles hardening effects it produces happen rapidly and are generally noticeable within a few days. The lean muscle that S4 provides is very keepable and extremely noticeable.

When recomping, S4 also shines. S4 allows a user to increase their lean muscle mass while reducing body fat. A user can produce some of the cleanest muscle gains they will experience on any type of cycle and enjoy seeing the fat melt off. These makes S4 extremely desirable.

The strength gains that S4 produces are rapid and lasting. The gains are generally all kept and are very clean. There is an excellent sense of overall well being that S4 provides that makes a user feel just as good, if not better than when they are on a steroid cycle.

Proper Dosing and Side Effects:

When it comes to dosing S4, it is a very delicate matter. S4 has two side effects that must be addressed. The main side effect of S4 is the vision effect. When run at the 50mg+ doses, many users report vision disturbances. Now these are only present when using S-4 and quickly disappear when S-4 use is discontinued.

The side effects are caused by the M1 metabolite and include night-time blindness and a slight yellowish tint to the vision for some users.

Although these side effects are temporary, if they are still a concern, as suggested earlier, a 5 on 2 off protocol where S-4 is used for 5 days followed by a 2 day break (then this cycle is repeated) would be the suggested dosing method.

The other main side effect is the small amount of suppression that comes with S4. The suppression is nowhere near the amount that comes along with steroid use but it is still something that needs addressed. The use of hcgenerate on cycle helps to keep this suppression to a minimum. A small mini pct ran for 3 weeks is all that is needed with S4. HcGenerate ES ran for the entire time will provide sufficient recovery.

As far as the proper dosing goes for S4, I have written a method that should be followed that allows a user to get the most out of S4 that they can. Here is my method in full detail.

THE DYLAN GEMELLI METHOD

Okay everyone… I wanted to write this up to make sure that everyone knows how to properly dose S4… As most of you know, the common side effect associated with S4 is the night vision issue. This results in one of two or both of these issues: A yellow tint associated with vision at night and/or a hard time adjusting to darkness or light… Normally the adjustment period is very quick but can effect some much worse than others. Basically, s4 can bind to the receptor in the eye causing these problems. UNDERSTAND that it is IMPOSSIBLE to know if this will happen to you and at what dosage this may happen… 50 mg is the general starting spot for dosing. Some people get the vision issue immediately even at this moderate dose. Some are able to get up to 100 mg a day with very minimal problems… There is no way to tell what category you fall into until you try… The vision issue is not permanent and the half life on s4 is very short (around 4-6 hours) Some people are forced to go to dosing s4 for 5 days and then taking 2 off because they cannot handle the vision issue… I try to do everything I possibly can to avoid this because I do not want to miss any days of usage…

So, it is important to understand how to dose s4 properly. Some people are content at staying at 50 mg for an entire 8 week cycle. Others, want to increase the dosage but there is a very specific protocol to follow to ensure that vision issues are kept to a minimum…

I compare this protocol to fighting Mike Tyson on Mike Tyson’s punchout. If anyone has ever played the game they will appreciate this comparison. When you fight Mike Tyson, the first 1:20 seconds of round 1, if you are hit just one time you are knocked down… This is the danger zone… Once you get past that first 1:20 you are much safer but you still must proceed with caution because the fcker is still dangerous…

This is the same with S4… You must go 2 weeks at 50 mg… If you get through the 2 weeks with minimal to no vision issues then you past the danger zone… You are safe then to increase your dosage but must proceed with caution… After two weeks you can bump to 60 mg… Now you are testing the waters… You must now stay on 60 mg between 10-14 days… I would say 12 is the safest bet… Then it is okay to increase again to 70 mg if you are able to… I feel like between 70 and 80 mg is the sweet spot however there is benefit up to 100 mg… You should continue to follow protocol of 10-14 days on each 10 mg incremental increase… By following this protocol, you could get up to 100 mg for at least the last week… You should NEVER GO ANY HIGHER THAN 100 mg… As I mentioned, the sweet spot is between 70-80 mg… Every increase needs to be with extreme caution and if the vision issues begin, you know where your boundary is… Some of us are luckier than others in terms of receptor binding… DO NOT BE IN A RUSH to increase dosage… Following this protocol will be the safest and MOST EFFECTIVE way of dosing s4.

S4 has a very short half life of 4-6 hours. The dosage should always be split and taken 4-6 hours apart in equal amounts.

S4 BENEFITS

This is a list of the several benefits associated with S4:

  • 1/3 as androgenic as testosterone in muscle tissue.
  • Anabolic at doses above 50mg
  • Great for strength
  • Great for muscle hardness
  • Great for enhanced vascularity
  • Great for endurance (aerobic or anaerobic)
  • Accelerated fat loss above 50mg
  • Joint healing effects
  • Half life of 4 hours

LGD-4033 – THE ANABOLIC SARM

  • Pin it
  • Share on Tumblr

LGD-4033 SARMSLGD-4033 is a SARM that binds to AR with high affinity (Ki of ~1 nM) and selectivity, class of androgen receptor (AR) ligands that is tissue selective, developed to treat muscle wasting associated with cancer, acute and chronic illness and age-related muscle loss.

LGD-4033 produces the therapeutic benefits of testosterone with improved safety, tolerability and patient acceptance due to tissue-selective mechanism of action and an oral route of administration.

LGD-4033 demonstrates anabolic activity in muscles, anti-resorptive and anabolic activity in bones and a robust selectivity for muscle and bone versus prostate and sebaceous glands.

LGD also has the possibility of producing healing effects with injuries and recoveries. LGD is showing to be extremely versatile and effective.

LGD USES:

LGD can be used in a variety of ways, but seems to truly shine with lean muscle gain. Many users have reported a significant increase in lean body mass, decreases in body fat and significant increases in strength. LGD has many anabolic properties and has shown to be the most powerful SARM to date.

LGD has the ability to put on more mass than any other SARM and has shown the gains that occur with anabolics. Users have experienced over 10lbs. of weight gain when incorporating LGD in a bulking manner. The recommended dosage for a bulking type cycle of LGD is between 5-10 mg per day for 8 weeks.

LGD shines when it comes to recomping. Many users have reported and increase in lean body mass and a decrease in body fat. LGD allows for more gain in size and muscle mass than any other SARM and when calories are at maintenance or below, it has shown to decrease body fat. Stacking LGD with other SARMS increases the chances of a stronger recomp. The recommended dose for recompoing is 5-8 mg a day for 8 weeks.

LGD can be used to cut as well. A much better cutting cycle would occur when stacked with SARMS S-4 and GW-501516. This would be a similar stack to the highly popular SARMS triple stack, without using ostarine and instead subbing LGD. The recommended dose for cutting is 3-5 mg a day for 8 weeks.

There are side effects to consider with LGD use. Through studies and logs, the side effects from LGD have so far shown to be minimal. The suppression that has shown has been dose dependent but there has been a decrease in total and free test as well as SHBG. The interesting findings shown have show NO significant decrease in LH or FSH. This is very encouraging to users as it shows that while suppressive, recovery will still not be near as long as with anabolics. It has shown to be non toxic and side effects have been mild to minimal. LGD has not shown increases in estradiol but as with anything, an anti aromatizer should be kept on hand.

A full pct, as opposed to a mini pct with other SARMS, is recommended after a cycle of LGD. While it may not be quite as suppressive as anabolics, the suppression is much higher than other SARMS, thus, requiring a full PCT.

LGD BENEFITS:

  • Effects similar to anabolics with size and strength
  • Minimal Side Effects
  • Excellent for recomping
  • Healing properties
  • Prevents muscle wasting
  • Works well as a stand alone or stacked with other SARMS
  • Great results in every aspect for different types of goals
  • Half life of 24-36 hours
