LGD-4033 is the best SARM out of all for overall sheer mass gains. It is a very potent muscle builder, and can boast gains as impressive as 10-15 pounds of PURE LEAN MUSCLE in a full cycle.
Let’s delve into LGD-4033 in more detail shall we:
What Is LGD-4033?
LGD-4033 is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) developed to prevent muscle wasting, help fight cancer, greatly enhance lean muscle growth potential and help older individuals maintain strength and lean tissue.
It is non-steroidal, and is ingested orally. It binds to the androgen receptor with an extremely high affinity and selectivity, and once it does this it exerts exceptional anabolic effects in muscle and bone (this equals MORE muscle and MORE strength with LESS injuries).
What makes LGD-4033 unique is that it is expected to produce the therapeutic benefits of testosterone with improved safety, tolerability and patient acceptance.
This is all done WITHOUT ANY negative Androgenic side effects that traditional steroids can cause (hair loss, natural testosterone shutdown, acne, testicle shrinkage, prostate issues, etc.)
During a typical LGD cycle there is minimal shut down (usually none at all) with a great increase in size, strength, and vascularity.
Because there are 0 Androgenic side effects from LGD-4033 (and all other SARMs for that matter) both men AND women can use LGD without having to worry about traditional steroid-like side effects.
What Can You Expect From LGD-4033?
LGD is the closest SARM that could be compared to the strength of an anabolic steroid.
You can definitely expect increases in lean muscle mass and decreases in body fat.
The mass gains from LGD are superior to that of any other SARM at the moment, and ON AVERAGE, I would say 10 pounds of lean muscle gain is common amongst all of the logs and results I have seen in individuals.
Results are even more exceptional in those who bust their ass training hard and maintain a very good diet.
In the upper echelon of individuals (those who are the most strict and take the best approach to their diet and training regimens) I have personally seen gains upwards of 15 pounds of lean muscle mass!
This isn’t typical, but I’ve seen it in individuals that don’t fuck around with their diet or training.
The mass gains are dry and clean for the most part; AKA there isn’t a lot of water retention.
This is great as then it makes it much easier to assess what gains you are actually making.
Many other drugs will cause you to bloat up with water retention and saturate your muscles with it to such a degree that half of your perceived “gains” are just lost after the cessation of the drug because half the weight you packed on was just pure water.
This is absolutely not the case with LGD, and you can definitely expect bloat free, lean gains.
How To Dose It?
LGD-4033 is effective with doses as low as 5 mg per day, but the “sweet spot” dose is 10 mg per day.
Clinical trials have gone as high as 20 mg+ per day with no reported negative side effects, so if your research subject is feeling fine with 10 mg you could opt to increase the dose a tad past that.
I wouldn’t exceed a maximum of 20 mg per day though.
The recommended cycle length is 8-12 weeks. You will experience diminished returns past the 12-week mark.
The half-life of LGD-4033 is 24-36 hours so you only need to dose LGD-4033 once per day.
It doesn’t matter if you are on an empty stomach or not when you dose it.
Do I Need To Do A PCT After A LGD Cycle?
Yes, you will need to do a mini-PCT after you stop taking LGD as it has a small chance of testosterone suppression.
Granted, while it is rare, it is recommended that you complete the PCT regardless to absolutely ensure you have no issues post-cycle and recover in a timely manner.
LGD-4033 does have a propensity to cause a bit more suppression than some of the other SARMs, so it is highly recommended that you are fully ready to go with a proper PCT upon the cessation of a LGD cycle.
My recommended PCT for any LGD cycle is K1NGS BLOOD.
Simply take 5 caps of K1NGS BLOOD twice per day for 4 weeks starting the day after your last LGD dose.
This should be more than enough to totally recover your testosterone levels and bring your hormones back to homeostasis.
How Does LGD Compare To Steroids Results Wise?
With LGD-4033, you can expect to replicate the therapeutic benefits of real Testosterone.
The size gains that can be made are definitely substantial on LGD, as well as the strength increase and fat loss effects.
I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to say LGD could easily match the gains you would be able to get from mild doses of testosterone.
On paper, LGD is the arguably the STRONGEST SARM there is.
Are There Side Effects?
There are no known side effects except the possibility of slight testosterone suppression.
This is easily recovered with a mini-PCT after your LGD cycle though and is nothing of concern.
If you are very gyno prone you may also experience a minor gyno flare up, but this is easily controllable by taking one capsule of ELIMINATE alongside your LGD dose each day.
ELIMINATE isn’t only a great PCT supplement, it is also a potent aromatase inhibitor, which will combat gyno flare-ups and help keep your Estrogen levels in that sweet spot where it’s not too high and not too low.
Basically, LGD feels like testosterone but it won’t mess up your prostate.
What Scenario Is Best To Use LGD In? Bulking/Cutting/Recomposition?
LGD-4033 works in EVERY scenario as it has an unmatched ability to build mass relative to other SARMs, but it also has great fat burning characteristics.
As it is extremely versatile, it can be utilized in a cut, bulk, or a recomposition with great success.
However, I feel that LGD shines most in bulking and recomposition phases.
The ability it has to pack on size is so great, that it would be wise to use it during phases where you are truly looking to pack on size.
I’m not saying that it shouldn’t be used for cutting, but I feel like Ostarine would be a better alternative for cutting, and for a recomposition or bulk then LGD would be the ideal SARM of choice.
Would Athletes Who Are Simply Looking For Increased Athletic Performance Benefit From LGD?
Yes, definitely. There are healing properties with LGD that will make you less susceptible to injury, as well as greatly improve your muscular strength and endurance.
What Is An Example Of A Good LGD Cycle For Recomposition Or Bulking?
I’ve Outlined A Very Solid Protocol With LGD For Either Recomposition OR Bulking Below:
Week 1-12: LGD-4033 10mg per day dosed once per day in the AM
Week 1-12: MK-677 25mg per day dosed once per day pre-bed
Week 1-12: 1 Pill ELIMINATE dosed three times per day
(Mini-PCT) Week 13-16: 5 Pills L1NGS BLOOD dosed twice per day
*Optional* Week 13-16: MK-677 25mg per day dosed once per day pre-bed (MK-677 is a GH Secretagogue, not a SARM, so it doesn’t cause testosterone suppression and can be used during PCT or even after PCT to help maintain your SARM gains, or even continue making more gains on its own)
LGD-4033 is a great legal (likely not for long) and MUCH safer alternative to traditional steroids for performance enhancement, and with its’ high level of versatility and minimal side effects it makes it an ideal compound for research in ANY athlete’s quest for maximizing their physique and/or performance.
