SARMs are select androgen receptor modulators that are powerful compounds to use to bulk up. There are several SARMs available like Ostarine, Ligandrol, RAD 140 and YK11. But which SARMs are the best SARMs for bulking up? In this article, I will address just that.
Hi, Alex Rogers here, supplement manufacturing expert. As a supplement manufacturing expert, I know about quality control and I know how to make quality supplements. Been doing it for almost 20 years. When it comes to SARMS, THE most important thing when buying them is a 3rd party lab analysis. NOT a certificate of analysis. These are two completely different things.
I have recently found one company that does just this…Paradigm Peptides. This is the FIRST company that I have found that actually went out and got their SARMS tested by a 3rd party lab. In addition, I know of the lab where they got these tests done as I have personally used them for my supplements and other tests.
Thus if you’re looking to buy SARMS and you want to guarantee you are actually getting what your paying for…get them from Paradigm Peptides. The ONLY reason I am recommending these guys is because of this 3rd party test. This is ALL YOU NEED for peace of mind!!
There are many different SARMS on the market. Some are designed for fat loss or endurance work, and others can help immensely in gaining substantial amounts of muscle. Even though you can get muscle gains from using basically any SARM, some are better than others. In this article, I will show you the top 3 best SARMS that belong in this category.
BEST SARMs FOR BULKING
- OSTARINE (also known as MK-2866) – Ostarine has already been discussed in another article where I mentioned the best SARMS on the market. So how could I pass the opportunity to mention it again? Ostarine is one of the first SARMS that was sold in supplement stores and online, and can still be purchased on various websites. It is extremely anabolic, which means that it’s a powerful product for those who wish to achieve lean muscle gains. It can raise estrogen levels slightly, but this is in fact a positive thing, as the slightly elevated estrogen can create a healthy response in bones, ligaments and tendons. This is why Ostarine is used to help patients with muscle wasting symptoms and deteriorating bone density diseases such as osteoporosis.
The recommended moderate cycle of Ostarine lasts 4-6 weeks. It has a half-life of 24 hours, and should be taken once per day in a 25-36 mg range. The best part of using Ostarine is that it has almost zero side effects, and doesn’t require a PCT if used in this way. You can however use Nolvadex, Clomid and/or Tribestan for the last week of your cycle in order to completely ensure that your muscle gains won’t deteriorate after stopping the cycle. As far as other side effects, only a few people on bodybuilding forums mentioned experiencing blurred vision, but this hasn’t been proven in clinical trials as an actual side effect of the drug.
To experience 15 lbs of clean muscle gains on Ostarine without any water retention is quite possible. One simple trick that can help you get the maximum results is to front load, by using 50% of the intended dose for the first week and increasing it afterwards. This way the androgen receptors will respond to the drug in a more effective way without receiving a paralyzing effect from the influx of a new stimulant in the system.
- LIGANDROL (LGD-4033) – Ligandrol is one of the best newer SARMS on the market. And it is on of the best SARMS for bulking. It’s muscle gaining properties are immense, and the following information will show you why. First of all, Ligandrol is much stronger than Ostarine. This is easily seen when we compare the daily doses needed to make considerable gains. While a regular person would need to use 25-36 mg of Ostarine, average daily dose of Ligandrol is only 3-15 mg per day. The recommended cycle length is longer as well, spanning from 8 to 12 weeks. Ligandrol is interesting because it requires no PCT, unless the person actually feels symptoms of low testosterone, and it also doesn’t cause any other major side effects. The usual muscle gains to expect are on average 2 lbs a week. Some portion of that weight can be lost after ending the cycle though, due to it being caused by stored glycogen and water retention.
- S-4 Andarine – S4 is another great SARM for bulking up. It has a great anabolic ratio of 10:1. The great thing about this product is that it can promote muscle gain and at the same time produce a fat eliminating effect as it improves the bodies ability to oxidize fat tissues. S4 is best taken at doses of 50-75 mg, 5 days in the week for 12-16 weeks. It is best to divide the dose in 25 mg, each taken with a meal throughout the day. This is not however, the standard bulking SARM, but its power to create high quality gains that won’t diminish and the fat loss capabilities that go with it make it a solid 3rd place on this list.
All three of these SARMS for bulking have been used by bodybuilders and powerlifters in offseason for a number of years. Their quality has been tested and proven with great results in bulking, and easy evasion of side effects normally associated with steroids. They are certainly worth being included in your future bulking plans.
