WHAT IS LGD-4033?
Concerns about the usage of steroids have led to the development of SARMs, or selective androgen receptor modulators. What these modulators do is that they stimulate the androgen receptors in just muscle and bone, thus avoiding all the bad effects of steroids. LGD-4033, also
known as Ligandrol or Ambolicum, is one of the best and the most popular SARMs among the health-conscious athletes and in the fitness community. It is a new nonsteroidal, oral selective androgen receptor modulator that binds androgen receptors with high affinity and selectivity.
It was discovered by Ligand Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting and osteoporosis. It’s currently under development by Viking Therapeutics.
Athletes have been very impressed by what they have experienced when using Anabolicum (LGD-4033). This includes:
Increased muscle mass
A decrease in body fat
Increase in strength
Increased muscle mass and an increase in strength are both results of the selective activation of androgen receptors in the muscles. Faster recovery from injuries and prevention of ones comes directly from activating the same receptors in the bone tissue.
Throughout the fitness and steroid user forums people are swearing in its efficiency. They say that “the LGD-4033 is the most powerful SARM in terms of size you can get”. Also, one expert says that “using LGD-4033 is recommended if you want to bulk up and drop fat sans steroids,
as we all know steroids have harsh side effects.” Fitness community recommends this product for recomposing your body and building lean body mass. Overall, one doesn’t need much to conclude that SARMs in general, and especially LGD-4033, are gaining in popularity with members of this community. Mostly this has to do with a whole variety of benefits but also with minimal side effects of these drugs
In both clinical trials done with LGD-4033, they used surprisingly low doses. In the one using 1 mg a day on young healthy males, the result was an increase of lean body mass averaging 1,21kg. I’ve read opposing opinions when it comes to the dosage of this supplement. Some people like to run it solo and some prefer to stack it with other products for faster and better results. You can choose the way that suits your goals and style.
It has a half-life of about 30 hours, so you can take 10mg per day orally. This is the upper tolerable limit for males, and for females, the upper tolerable limit is 5 mg per day.
Some athletes used as much as 20 mg per day, which produced some great results, but the recommendation is that you don’t go over 10 mg/5 mg dose, just to be safe. It doesn’t matter whether you take it with food or on an empty stomach, and timing isn’t that important. Some people, though, recommend taking it with your breakfast or just before you
start exercising. The duration of the cycle should be 8 to 12 weeks to reach a satisfactory mass, followed by a post-cycle therapy of 4 to 5 weeks. Steroids like the LGD 4033 produce the best results in
shorter cycles. If you decide to go for the longer cycle make sure not to exceed 12 weeks at a time. The best thing is to start at 5mg and work from there, depending on your goals and body type.
Is PCT required?
Yes, it is. Although testosterone suppression is significantly less observed than that with anabolic steroids, there is a certain level of suppression this drug causes on both the total and free testosterone. Therefore, full PCT is necessary, unlike the mini-PCT which is often sufficient for other SARMS.
