SARMS Guide

OSTARINE MK-2866

Ostarine is one of the entry-level SARMs; it’s relatively mild and widely renowned for its overall ‘sense of wellbeing’ effects. It’s a superb healing, recovery and joint-repair compound, making it a favourite amongst athletes. MK-2866 is widely available and very popular, either as a standalone product or stacked with other SARMs.

Ostarine is known for helping you hang on to muscle mass when you are dieting to lose fat. Usually, in a calorie deficit, you would lose fat but you would also lose some lean mass (muscle). Ostarine helps to prevent catabolism so you get leaner but preserve your hard-earned muscle mass.

Ostarine is mildly suppressive on your body’s test production (suppression levels are greater if you run your SARMs cycle for longer, or use higher doses). For this reason, many people choose to use PCT after Ostarine. For short cycles of 4-8 weeks, most people will not require PCT to recover.

  • Common dosage: 10mg-25mg per day
  • Half-life: 24 hours – full dosage can be taken once per day
  • Recommended cycle length: 8-12 weeks
  • PCT? For cycles 4-8 weeks, no PCT required. For higher-dosage cycles or longer than 8 weeks, PCT is recommended

LINGADROL LGD-4033

Lingadrol is much stronger than Ostarine but has similar effects – fat loss, muscle retention and muscle gain. It can suppress natural testosterone and the HPG axis (the hypothalamus, pituitary, and gonadal glands), so pay attention to your post-cycle therapy and recovery. Use a SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) between cycles of Lingadrol to protect your body’s hormones.

  • Common dosage: 4-10mg per day
  • Half-life: 30 hours – full dosage can be taken once per day and LGD will build up in the system over the course of your cycle
  • Recommended cycle length: 8-12 weeks
  • PCT cycle? Yes, a full PCT including a SERM is recommended after Lingadrol

TESTOLONE RAD-140

Testolone is one of the newer SARMs, one of the more potent compounds in the range. It is known for its ability to help you build dense muscle mass. This is a highly anabolic SARM so only use low doses. It does inhibit natural test production, so a PCT is vital. Best used during a bulk, ideally a 12-week cycle length.

  • Common dosage: 4mg-12mg per day
  • Half-life: 16-20 hours – full dosage can be taken once per day
  • Recommended cycle length: 8-12 weeks
  • PCT cycle? Yes, a full PCT including a SERM is recommended after RAD-140

IBUTAMOREN MK-677

MK-677, although not a SARM but often found in the same category, is also known as Nutrobal or Ibutamoren. It is a selective agonist of the growth hormone receptor, so it works by raising your body’s levels of IGF-1.

Be aware that it also mimics your appetite hormone, so your appetite is likely to increase. Great for a bulking phase (or for hard gainers who struggle to get the calories in) but maybe not so good if you have a big appetite already. Best for bulking and adding mass, as well as boosting fat loss considerably.

  • Common dosage: 10mg-25mg per day
  • Half-life: 24 hours – full dosage can be taken once per day
  • Recommended cycle length: Long-term (minimum of 4 months for best results)
  • PCT? No, MK-677 is non-hormonal and doesn’t cause any suppression, PCT is not necessary

CARDARINE GW-501516

Cardarine is actually a PPAR-delta modulator (not a SARM) that works by stimulating protein receptors which help the body create muscle tissue. But so many people group it in with SARMs that we thought it best to include it here. Effects of Cardarine include muscle gain, endurance and energy.

  • Common dosage: 7mg-20mg per day
  • Half-life: 16-24 hours – full dosage can be taken once per day
  • Recommended cycle length: 8-12 weeks
  • PCT? No – Cardarine is non-hormonal and will not affect your test levels

THE BEST SARMS DOSAGES

SARMs are widely known to be effective at helping build muscle, strength, mass, and endurance whilst also helping you lose body fat. As with any drug or compound, be sensible and smart about how you use SARMs.

Always check out the recommended dose and always start low. Not only does this give you somewhere to go (if you start high, you leave yourself with nowhere to progress) but it also means you can assess the results at low doses. At lower dosages, you may be able to avoid the need for any PCT. Be smart with your SARMs cycle and see what amazing benefits you still get from SARMs.
