LGD-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 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.
