Pros and Cons of SARMS for Bodybuilding
Selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) have certainly caused an uproar in the bodybuilding industry, with many users claiming they work better than anabolic steroids. We are going to briefly talk about the advantages and disadvantages when taking SARMS.
The big advantages when using SARMS is fact you can stack add them onto any existing cycle. But more importantly, you won't get side effects like you are guaranteed to get when taking steroids. Another advantage of SARMS is that unlike any regular steroid it won't interact with your important aromatase enzymes will result in the forming estrogen, not a good thing when your objective is muscle mass.
SARMS will give you the lean muscle development you're looking for while being totally non-toxic to your body, as well as undetectable. But it's not all good news; with the correct dosages you can minimize any side-effects, which are listed below:
Testicular atrophy (shrinking)
Gynecomastia (male breasts)
Virilization for women (deeper voice with enlarged Adam's apple)
Over the last 10 years this exciting new performance-enhancing drug called selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) is getting more and more press because of the results seen. The limited official research on SARMs looks promising so far. These SARMS appear to able build more muscle while burning more fat without the liver-destroying, unsightly body-hair growth effects.
SARMS act on your hormones, but in a targeted way, showing huge potential to build muscle rapidly and shed fat. Playing with our hormone balance is a risky business and to date there have been no long-term side effects n the current SARM studies available.
Experimenting with SARMs is like experimental bio-hacking. It needs to be noted that ALL SARMs are now on the banned substance list for the World Anti-Doping Agency's. If you're an athlete that competes, you should not take SARMs. If you're just another curious self-experimenter trying to increase your physical performance, it may be worthwhile considering.
When you use steroids it's like trying to tweak some microchip using a sledgehammer. Steroids work because it'll build muscle by increasing testosterone, this will increase your protein synthesis that happens in your cells, building more muscle and burning more fat, i.e. the anabolic side when taking steroids.
Problem is, steroids also are going to interact with your prostrate, liver, your heart, increases body-hair growth, man-boobs, acne etc. it affects your sex organs (ball shrinkage for men or clitoral enlargement for women). All of these side effects are called the androgenic side-effects when taking all steroids.
The problem with all anabolic steroids is that they got a terrible anabolic-to-androgenic ratio of 1:1. This means you'll just as likely to get your balls shrunk or enlarge your clitoris as you will build muscle. SARMs are far more selective compared to steroids, boosting your anabolic-to-androgenic ratio from 3:1 and going all the way to an impressive 90:1. SARMs will offer no bearded ladies or shrunken balls, plus no injections.
SARM's is legal "for research purposes only". Some SARMs retailers show disclaimers like "for lab research purposes only" or "not for human consumption". They do this because the laws might change, they don't want to get into any trouble with government.
If you're convinced you want to give SARMS a try, the list below is commonly used to get the process started. The list of SARMS below has shown no side effects. Some show a slight decrease in T production which returns to normal after the cycle. Please note that any consideration of taking SARMS is entirely at your own risk:
Recommended dose: 15-20mg daily for only 4 weeks
Ligandrol or Anabolicum LGD-4033
Recommended dose: 2mg/day up to 20mg/day for 4 weeks
Recommended dose: 10mg/day for 104 weeks not 4 weeks
Andarine S4 was the first SARM, popular at the 2008 Olympics, just before all SARMs were banned from use by all professional athletics.
Recommended dose: 50mg daily, split 25mg doses morning and evening.
Stenabolics are useless when taken in pill or tablet form as it gets completely destroyed by stomach acid, so the only way to get results is by injecting this SARM.
