The following is written testimonials on people’s real experience with SARMS (Select Androgen Receptor Modulators)
I am a 43 year old male who has trained in multiple disciplines over 30 years exercise.. I began like many others trying to lift the biggest weights but as I have progressed through the years to keep my body in top physical shape for the sports I still enjoy participating in (boxing, cross fit, football, martial arts) I have had to modify my workouts to deal with various injuries over those years, most notably a lower back injury that crushed my L4-L5…. despite the pain in my back, and in my joints, I feel that it is important to push on… I feel it necessary to tell you that before I discuss what I have used over that time… dealing with injuries, I have always used supplements…. whether test boosters, otc, or otherwise, if it provided a benefit and made my body feel better, and was in moderation, I would use the supplementation, along with a good diet,which led me to sarms. I found them like many supps and after reading up on their effects on the body, I decided to first try super ostra, from primeval labs. I felt great while using the ostra, which I ran for standard 6 week cycle, solo…. joints felt good, energy was good, strength increased and most importantly, workouts improved(harder, stronger, longer)
I have also used Tri- sarm which is a ostarine, lgd 4033, and andarine mix…. I had run the course with various PH which shut my system down and could not take the sides anymore, as I have to work full time and the PH made it tough…. with the tri-sarm, I ran full recommended serving which was 30/30/15, ostra, lgd, andarine…. I also ran a liver sup, test booster, and vitamin along with cycle….felt great 1-2 weeks in, but by the third week, I had a hard time dealing with the lethargy, or the drying out of the joints…. remember, I was trying to help my body deal and heal with the injuries, and this was now having an opposite effect…. I know that most of the sarms I did were primeval labs, but have also used black stone…. I was forced to cut the cycle off at 4-5 weeks after I could not keep my eyes open during the day while on cyc, in addition to sore joints… comparatively speaking, the sarms hit me worse than the PH I have used with regard to the lethargy…. I was falling asleep during work all while drinking pre workout in the afternoons (train in morning)….. if I were to do them again, again for my body, joints, muscle, I would stick to ostra on a light cycle 20/20/30/30/40/30/20. Now they did not shut my sex drive down as much as PH, but could not handle the lethargy.
I would recommend them on a limited basis, and only from a reputable company where you know what you are putting into your body, and only to those who are experienced and know there body well…sarms, legitimate ones, do provide benefits, but do carry risks comparable to those of PH
1) why did you decide to try SARMS?
I been lifting for 10 years and wanted to try something new to increase my gains, and strengths. I have messed around with pro hormones and since the ban of pro hormone and constant discontinuation of products i decided to try something new. I looked into anabolic steroids and felt like this wasn’t and option yet and wanted something more mild. I decided to go into SARMS as they most reviews and talk mentioned all the good and none of the bad being they are “selective”
2) what brand did you buy?
I started my google quest for different SARMS and was very hesitant to try many different brands. The best reviews and from some reading i came down to two different brands it was either Iron Mag Labs or Hard Rock Supplements. I decided to go with the Hard Rock Supplements
3) what kind of SARM did you use?
I did plenty of research on different SARMS and effective and safe dosage of each, however the one SARM that I continue to read about that seem to be the safest and had the most beneficial human studies was MK2866 or Enobosarm or most known as Ostarine. As aforementioned the brand i went with was Hard Rock Supplements and the product name was Osta Shred. After mild success with this product I wanted to try more and different SARMS
4) did you stack it with something?
My first run with Ostarine I didnt stack the product with anything, however the product itself “Osta Shred” is stacked with Arimistane which is a Aromatase inhibitors and helps boost natural testosterone. After success with Hard Rock Supplements I attempted to look for other SARMS but couldn’t find any as they seem to be on the legal scoop of the next supplment ban. I could only find liquid forms and I found another website from the UK and tried Ostarine and Cardarine stacked but didn’t have the same results as I believe the product may have been bunk or under-dosed.
5) when did you start to see results if any?
I started to see physical results after a couple of weeks along with clean eating and upping my cardio. However my mental well being almost seemed instantly better within a couple days. I read dosage between 25mg to 50mg and between 4-8 weeks I decided to go with the lower dose for the longer duration. After a couple weeks fell better and strength was increased I was looking leaner however holding same number on scale. (190ish if i recall) I believe that my muscle was increasing and my fat was slowly decreasing. I felt streght increase similar to some prohormones i tried in the past minus some of the associated bloat.. However even with out bloat or increase of water retention my joints where still feeling good and even some old injuries seemed to heal. At the end of the cycle I increase my weight by 5lbs but was probably 2-3% bf (body fat) reduction. Which I was happy with as i felt i head a halt on some gains and fat reduction.
6) did you experience any side effects?
I didnt notice any crazy side effects if any I would say that at the end of the cycle I felt maybe metnal withdraws and didnt have that overall mental well being. However I was able to keep my weight up and bf% down.
7) would you use them again and why?
I would use them again not only for the safe (safer) alternative to AAS but also for the mental well being
8) would you recommend them?
I would recommend at least Ostarine as that is all i know about and seen numerous human studies on, however i would also recommend individual to do their own research on products.
9) what do you think is the best SARM?
Again I believe that Ostarine is probably the best just because it seems to have the most amount of reviews and human studies. Also that is all i really know, and would like to try other from reputable supplier.
10) how much did your strength go up?
My strength didn’t go up a crazy amount on some of the isolation movements however I could see an increase between 10-25lbs on most of my compound moments.
11) What kind of dosages did you use and stacks?
I used 25mg of ostarine for 8 weeks.
One of the things I really hate are overly hype products. We all wish we’d never hit a plateau. Obviously when you come across a new advanced technology you feel this ravaging impulse to try it because if you aren’t getting the results you desire and need to put up to the rest of the competition, ultimately you straggle.
Not much was knew when sarm-x from mhp hit the shelves. I can’t say I noticed much improvement but yes recovery seemed more rapid and training was a bit easier. But I really don’t know if to ascribe those effects to sarm-x because they fell so short to those claims. 2 months later very little improvement.
Three years ago best products used to stack with, where ephedrine based products like black mamba and black widow. I also used jet fuse from GAT and Gaspari’s super pump. Lately this year I haven’t used much and the results, well not very far from scrap (as in I see fairly good results with just training and resting according). I made couple days of searching in and thought best option would be LGD So with using this (last summer) I felt a bit more stamina and maybe I lost like 2% body fat!, haha so… Lgd elite is out of the list of “great results” delivered by the innovative “black stone labs. By the way assault from muscle farm is pretty decent preworkout (when it comes to upper body, for pumping muscles).
Up until now I don’t know of any side effects. I want to try another brand maybe because so many people are writing about good results. I’m after a product that may cause very little harmless side effects but a decent treatment for strength and muscle gains. I’m not going to recommend these products I used since I don’t feel that you should pay for something that will give you nothing in return for your investment. I’ve read good reviews for hi-tech pharmaceuticals and DNA labs.
I wouldn’t go trying something outside of Lgd or ostarin. Some products may be more harmful than beneficial. Whenever I’ve tried any of this gear is as part of recovery from any previous injury and I believe that at least supplementing with them has been somewhat more beneficial. Dosages I keep them small. For example I got 10mg per pill one day on and one day off for 6 weeks. I might go for every day for 5 weeks to see if the dosage makes better difference using same compunds like LGD.
