What Exactly Are SARMS?
The term SARMS stands for “Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators.” Androgens are a class of hormones bind to cellular androgen receptors. The androgen receptor is involved in a internal process that ultimately results in greater expression of specific genes.All anabolic steroids and pro-hormones offer their muscle building properties through this binding to the androgen receptor just like SARMS.
A drug that can either block or stimulate the same nuclear hormone receptor under different conditions is called a selective receptor modulator. If it can block or stimulate a receptor in a tissue selective manner, it may be able to mimic the beneficial effects in one tissue (muscle growth, fat loss, endurance etc) and, at the same time, minimise the unwanted effects seen with natural or synthetic steroidal hormones (hormone suppression, gyno, balding, sweats etc) in other tissues.
SARMS offer the benefits of traditional anabolic steroids such as testosterone (including increased muscle mass, fat loss, and bone density), all the while, offering a much lower tendency to produce the unwanted side effects that come with steroids.
What Are The Benefits Of Taking SARMS?
SARMs offer the potential for harnessing the benefits of anabolic supplementation whilst minimising the undesirable side effects. They also have the potential advantages of oral dosing, which testosterone and some steroids do not.
For the body builder/gym user/fitness enthusiast/athlete SARMS can be used either in conjunction with or as a replacement for traditional anabolics in the following uses:
- Lean muscle growth
- Preventing muscle loss during cutting
- Injury rehabilitation
- PCT use after anabolics.
Why Choose SARMS Instead Of Steroids?
There are many reasons why SARMS have advantages over steroids. Below we have outlined the main reasons that concern most users.
- Oral (no injections needed)
- Similar effects to testosterone (libido, strength gains, fat loss etc…)
- No conversion to Dihydrotestosterone
- No conversion to Estrogen
- No harsh liver toxicity from methylated compounds
- Does not inhibit your HPTA to the large extent of steroids
- LEGAL for intended use
- Undetectable (select SARMs)
How Do I Use SARMS?
The best way to use SARMS is via oral liquid intake. Below are a few suggested methods.
- Option 1: Squirt the liquid SARMS into your test subject and chase it down with some juice.
- Option 2: Mix the SARMS with juice or your favourite energy drink and down it as a cocktail in your test subject.
-Option 3: Drink the SARMS straight up (squirt into test subject like Option 1) and consume a piece of fruit.
In our view, the best option is #2. I found that mixing SARMS with juice in a cup like a cocktail delivers the easiest formula that you can drink without tasting the actual chemical compound. All you end up tasting is the Cranberry juice (our favourite). Though, you guys might find other juices you love as an alternative mix.
Which SARMS Best Suit My Goals?
Bulking: The typical user looking for lean mass gains would be suited to using GAIN (LGD-4033) for 8 weeks at a dose of about 10mg, which will typically produce 5kg keepable gains in lean mass. MYO (YK-11) is a great product the stack with any muscle builder as it works to stop a protein called myostatin. Myostatin blocks muscle development so with this taken care of you can essentially increase the amount of muscle your body can grow making a builder like GAIN (LGD-4033) all the more effective. GROWTH (MK-677) acts to increase your bodies production of growth hormone. This makes it great for bulking as well as many other things at 25mg for 10-12 weeks.
Cutting: The typical user looking to cut body fat while retaining lean mass gains would be suited to using SHRED (GW-501516) 8 weeks at a dose of 20mg which will produce excellent cutting effects. SHRED (GW-501516) has an added benefit of super endurance and is often referred to as the king of endurance supplements. A great addition to SHRED (GW-501516) is MASS (S4) which shows a decrease in LPL (lipoprotein lipase) which is an enzyme that causes lipid accumulation. This stack can be purchased in our AUS LABS Cut Stack.
Strength: MASS (S4) is also similar to many of the DHT derived steroids in that effect of strength gains rise at a higher proportion than mass gains. So if you’re looking to experience and increase in strength without a large in increase in weight, MASS (S4) again used for 8 weeks at doses of 50mg which will produce excellent results. If your looking for some added muscle with that strength then you cannot go past GROWTH (MK-677). As mentioned previously the increase in growth hormone will produce excellent strength effects.
Lean Muscle Gain: The recomping effect of losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time is what the majority of users are looking for. For this you simply cannot go past our AUS LABS Triple Stack. MAINTAIN (MK-2866) with its anabolic and nutrient partitioning effects is ideal for such a goal and a dosing protocol of 12.5-25mg for 8 weeks will give excellent recomp effects. Stacking with MASS (S4) as well as SHRED (GW 501516) will be excellent for lean muscle gain as well. The beauty of SARMS is they are multifaceted in their use. Your diet and training will dictate the results, but there are many options that are possible with them.
Injury Healing: MAINTAIN (MK-2866) has the benefit of healing as part of its versatility. The effects it provides translate to anabolism in bone and skeletal muscle tissue, which also allows it to be used in a variety of ways, such as treating osteoporosis and in conjunction with drugs that reduce bone density. It has excellent benefits when used for rehabilitation of injuries, especially bone and tendon related injuries. Doses of 12.5mg per day is recommend for such purposes and improvement in joint movement that can be seen after just 6-8 days. However the best healer is hands down GROWTH (MK-677). This is due to it increasing IGF levels healing joints, bones and injuries in super fast times.
Post Cycle Therapy: This is one of the perfect uses for SARMS and combines 2 of our best sellers in our AUS LABS PCT Stack. This is the stack for those looking to reduce the negative side effects associated with a post cycle therapy (PCT) after an anabolic steroid cycle. The combination of these two SARM's results is minimum loss of strength, reduced fat gain and preventing catabolism as cortisol rises, all common side effects of a PCT. We recommend that SERM's such as Nolvadex or Clomid be used in conjunction with this stack during PCT to ensure HTPA restarting.
