If you’re trying to get lean and mean, then you’ve probably heard about SARMS. SARMS stands for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. These are effective performance enhancers designed to increase muscle mass, bone density and ability to lose body fat, as well as for treating various health conditions that were previously treated with anabolic steroids. Bodybuilders sometimes include them in their Post Cycle Therapy in order to preserve as much muscle mass as they can. The difference between SARMS and steroids is that SARMS are much safer to use. They can be purchased legally in most countries, but they’re banned from use in competitive sports. In this article, I would like to show you the 3 best SARMs that are available on the market today.
THE BEST SARMS ON THE MARKET
- OSTARINE (also known as MK-2866) – This is the most popular SARM, and has been for a very long time, because it’s the first one that made people experience serious improvements in their physique and athletic performance. It is basically free of side effects at moderate doses, and was for some time sold legally in supplement stores. The potency of Ostarine is amazing. Even at the low doses of 3 mg it produces a powerful anabolic effect in most people.
It is also one of the better researched SARMS, with 8 scientific studies by GTx made to research its effectiveness. It was also used in a medical trial for patients with muscle wasting diseases, proving to be effective at growing lean muscle mass and strength.
The best way to use Ostarine is for gaining muscle, in a timeframe of 4-6 weeks, with the average daily dosage being 25 mg. After doing this cycle no PCT is required. This type of cycle can produce around 6 to 10 lbs of clean muscle mass. Heavyweight bodybuilders or athletes in general can use it for up to 8 weeks, but then it would be advisable to do a PCT in order to restore natural testosterone production.
There are very little side effects to worry about when using Ostarine. There is a very small chance of gynecomastia symptoms in individuals prone to them, and the other side effect involves taking large doses for a prolonged period of time. Oldie but goldie, Ostarine is still one of the best SARMS on the market.
- LIGANDROL (LGD-4033) – This SARM is very popular among bodybuilders, both as a bulking and cutting supplement. Average dose that has proven to work is 10 mg daily, and the lean muscle gains that a person can achieve from using it for 4-5 weeks can vary between 6-12 lbs. Just as Ostarin, it is very anabolic, in a ratio of 10:1 when compared to its androgenic properties. Therefore it is best used for bulking purposes.
The other information on Ligandrol is the same as for Ostarine. It doesn’t have any special side effects worth mentioning, except for those that may occur on bigger doses used for a prolonged period of time, such as decreased natural testosterone production and signs of gynecomastia. It is however advisable to do a short PCT after using Ligandrol to be on the safe side.
- CARDARINE (GW 501516) – Cardarine is widely acknowledged as the best SARM for improving endurance and reducing bodyfat. The reason why it’s so effective for losing fat is due to it’s non catabolic capabilities, meaning that just as Winstrol, it will preserve your muscle mass while improving your bodys weight loss mechanisms (reducing appetite, improving metabolism etc.). It can be taken at 10-20 mg daily for 12 weeks, with 10 mg advised for increasing endurance, and higher doses for increasing fat loss.
What makes Cardarine appealing is the lack of side effects, even among people who don’t follow a rigid, healthy lifestyle and enjoy alcohol and other unhealthy stimulants while on the cycle. Therefore it is really popular among fitness recreationists.
If you’re interested in improving your physique and performance SARMS can be a good alternative to the traditional steroid cycles. With less side effects and great anabolic properties, they can make a huge difference. I hope that this article discussing the best SARMS on the market has left you more knowledgeable on this topic.
