If you’re into bodybuilding or want to build some muscle and get that “cut and dried” look, you might be thinking about taking SARMs. I’m not suggesting you take SARMs. But if you want the lowdown on the best 3 for cutting, I’m here to tell you that Ligandrol, Ostarine, and Andarine are the top performers. They can be stacked or taken separately to different degrees of effectiveness. Take them all with a proper nutrition and workout plan.
SARMs are Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. They are the new bodybuilding drug. They bind to androgen receptors like steroids, but unlike steroids, they are tissue-selective and don’t cause nearly as many harmful side effects. SARMs have had an increasing web presence in the past five years. They are legal to buy, but they are not legal for use in humans.
Some are in clinical trials; some have been through clinical trials. I know you’ve probably heard about people using them to bulk up, but we’re going to talk about weight loss, or cutting, here. You take SARMs alone, or you can stack them.
You might have heard this SARM referred to as LGD-4033. Ligand Pharmaceuticals first developed it as a preventative against muscle wasting in the aged and patented in 2009. It went through a clinical trial in 2018 that looked at its effectiveness in elderly patients recovering from a fractured hip. It’s also good for strength and muscle tissue maintenance in the elderly. Some sources report that it fights against cancer. But what’s important to you and me is that it aids in the growth of lean muscle mass.
Benefits and Side Effects
Like other SARMs, Ligandrol has benefits that far outweigh steroids. There are no androgenic side effects. But it also has its side effects that you want to take into consideration.
- Has potency similar to steroids
- It has been through Phase I clinical trials
- Doesn’t cause acne
- Doesn’t cause baldness
- Doesn’t cause testicles to shrink
- No water retention
- Can cause a headache
- There may be pain related to a muscle biopsy
- You may have dry mouth
- Like all SARMS, it poses an increased risk for heart attack, stroke, and liver failure
There are varying ways to use Ligandrol; whether you take it on an empty or full stomach makes no difference. Taking 3-5mg a day, once a day, for eight weeks is a possible regime. You could stack it with Andarine, Cardarine, and/or Ostarine for increased effects. For this SARM to work, you must have a diet and exercise regimen in place. Actively exercise and count macronutrients for this to work.
A customer who reviewed Ligandrol said he followed a regime of 5mg a day for around 6-7 weeks and did an upper body workout. He was flabby around his middle and on his sides. He gained 8 pounds of lean muscle and got rid of his sides and stomach’s excess weight. He built abs! He effectively lost body fat with the use of LGD-4033.
Many workout enthusiasts claim it’s more reliable than regular steroids. Someone using this product could expect to gain 5-10 pounds of lean muscle mass. The body fat just gets burned up, and muscle takes its place. You get thinner and have well-defined stomach muscles. The bloating in the stomach is minimal; gains are clean. People often report a considerable increase in strength.
People sometimes refer to this SARM as MK 2886 or Enbosarm. You’d be surprised; this SARM is not new at all. It’s been around a long time, decades. Ostarine has been in clinical trials since 1997, when GTX, Inc. licensed it. GTX developed it to treat osteoporosis and muscle wasting in elderly patients. The body stores it in its fatty tissues.
Benefits and Side Effects
Like any SARM, it has benefits and side effects. It’s up to you to be sure that you weigh the benefits vs. the side effects to decide if this SARM is right for you. I’ve gathered a pretty good list, so make sure you read all of them.
- Adds more muscle mass
- Creates results rapidly
- Requires less recovery time
- Increases bone density
- Makes fat loss happen very fast
- Creates a decrease in HDL levels
- Causes acne on the back
- Can cause pain in the joints
- Can cause an increase in hunger
- Increases risk for heart attack, stroke, and liver damage
The rule of thumb on dosing is 10mg a day, once a day, for eight weeks. Or stack it with 15mg of Cardarine (GW 50156) for the same amount of time for better results. Remember that you absolutely must have a proper diet and exercise regimen for this drug to work.
A customer who tried Ostarine said they tried to get abs, but they were never successful. Working with fewer calories always meant losing muscle and strength. They tried an Ostarine 25mg and Cardarine 20mg stack and at seven weeks with fewer calories, and a workout saw their abs. Their bench weight went up 10 pounds, and they boosted their cardio sessions. This customer said it is essential to count macronutrients or at least calories.
You may have heard this called S4. GTX, Inc. also developed this one for muscle wasting and osteoporosis in the elderly. It went into Phase I trials. At one point, GTX halted the development of this SARM.
This SARM has excellent benefits and some not-so-great side effects you may want to know about. The good points may outweigh the deficits for you. Take a close look at the information I provide here and see what works for you.
- Increases muscles
- Fights osteoporosis
- Aids in muscle recovery
- Burns fat
- Increases bone strength
- Causes night vision issues
- Exacerbates hair loss
- Suppresses testosterone
- Increases risk of heart attack, stroke, and liver damage
Andarine only has a four-hour half-life, so you’re going to need to split up the dosages, so they remain at a constant level in your bloodstream. You can stack Andarine.
- A beginning dose is 25mg/day
- An intermediate dose is 50mg/day
- And advanced dose is 100mg/day
A customer complained that he could never get the muscular physique he desired no matter how much he worked out. He got really frustrated with this. He was about to give up, but his brother told him to go ahead and try Andarine. He bought a bottle, and it was like a miracle. Now he flaunts his muscles and doesn’t feel sad anymore. He says this is the best thing that’s happened to him. And there are no side effects besides some crazy headaches sometimes.
SARMs are effective; there’s no question about that. The three I’ve listed here: Ligandrol, Ostarine, and Andarine are the best for weight loss. You can find them online; a good site is here. Make sure you know the facts. Eat a proper diet; make sure you work out and get enough sleep. And love your body!
