Which SARMS for Bulking? Top 3
There are many different SARMS on the market (Be careful because fakes are everywhere). 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.
1. LIGANDROL (LGD-4033) Ligandrol is one of the best newer SARMS on the market. And it is one of the best SARMS for bulking. It’s muscle gaining properties are immense. 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 25mg of Ostarine, doses of Ligandrol can be run at 3-15 mg per day. The recommended cycle length can run a little longer spanning from 8 to 12 weeks. Ligandro requires no PCT (Post Cycle Therapy), unless the person actually feels symptoms of low testosterone, and it also doesn’t cause any other major side effects. However we usually just recommend to use a natural supplement such as Tribulus extract or Fenugreek and it usually is good enough. Muscle gains per week can be huge especially if paired with a good weight training program 3/4 times a week and a diet high in quality protein and carbs. A portion of that weight can be lost after ending the cycle though due to it being caused by stored glycogen and minor water retention.
2. OSTARINE (MK-2866) Ostarine is one of the first SARMS that was sold in supplement stores and online. 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 can be a positive thing, as the slightly elevated estrogen is healthy for your bones, ligaments and tendons. The recommended moderate cycle of Ostarine lasts 4-6 weeks. It has a half-life of 24 hours so it can be taken once a day 25mg or 2 12.5mg doses a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. PCT is not necessary but if you feel you need it you use natural supplements such as Tribulus extract or Fenugreek extract and if you need something a bit stronger you can take a low does of Nolvadex or Clomid once every 3 days starting a week before your cycle ends. As far as other side effects, we have mentioned it because it has appeared on bodybuilding forums about people experiencing blurred vision, but this hasn’t been proven in clinical trials as an actual side effect of the drug. So we don’t know if this is a real side effect of the drug, caused from mixing with other drugs or could be from taking SARMS from a shady source. Gaining pounds of muscle with little water retention is possible using Ostarine.
3. ANDARINE (S4) Andarine is another great SARM for bulking. It has an 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. Andarine is best taken at doses of 50-75 mg for 12 weeks but if run longer only 5 days in the week for 12-16 weeks. It is best to divide the doses by 25 mg each and take it with a meal. This is not a standard bulking SARM, but it’s powerful enough to create high quality gains that won’t diminish along with the fat loss capabilities that go with it make it a solid 3rd place.
