Cool Trying this new SARM stuff out, specifically Ostarine (MK2866)

I find it odd that this stuff has been around for a long time, yet no one has really jumped on board or gave crazy reviews. OR it's just due to the prohormone ban and people are looking for alternatives.

Whatever the case may be, I've decided to give it a shot. I'm planning a 6 week cycle of 20MG per day. We'll see how it goes.

What's your workout/nutrition plan to go along with it? I'm curious to see real world results myself. Also, from what I've read you still need to use some sort of pct.

I thing if you're over a certain point or length of time. But I'd probably consider it even at a light dose.

As would I... I used to work with a kid who was crazy into pro-hormones. Never used pct. And has major gyno plus all kinds of other hormonal issues.

I'm curious about this stuff for my own knowledge, not necessarily for use. I've never bothered to come up to speed on various performance enhancing supplements, steroids, etc. Not sure where this falls. Can anyone break it down or give a link for basic education?

Edit - Starting to read here:

read up on it last night. Clinical trials were done on something like 3mg. To see actual results you'd need 20-30 so yea. Probably not a good idea.

lol, what could go wrong at 10x the dose?

I've seen one of the local supplement store guys posting about it on FB, extolling how wonderful it is. Granted, the guy is in fantastic shape, but I'd have to be 100% confident of what it is, how it works, and the side effects to start up on something like this.

Every few years some miracle supplement comes around. Everyone swears it's the next big thing and then it fizzles out once science is brought to the table.

Nitric oxide
Myostatin inhibitors
Deer antler spray

This stuff seems to have more potential right from the get go. But, I still want to see real world results.

Nitric oxide supplements typically only contain L-Arginine, which is degraded through the liver/intestine. It's only beneficial for those that are lacking due to major health concerns. For those that want a true pump and actual NO then take citrulline; which you can get from watermelons and beat juice.

Myostatin inhibitors are legit through quality peptides and how they are administered. There's a lot of negative side effects too so people looked for alternatives. The stupid pills/powders are all scams.

Deer antler spray is supposed to increase IGF-1, which by itself is supposed to be awesome and crazy expensive. This became popular cause of sports and the legality of it due to the IGF-1 component. Even though it doesn't do anything...

Back on topic with Ostarine...

I've been taking 20MG per day for almost a week and I'm definitely feeling and seeing results.

I was doing legs to the point of failure... but was then able to push it even further, way beyond what I've ever done. I was also perfectly fine 2-3 days later which shows that something is going on since I usually can't walk after leg workouts.

The skin on my body is also tighter, the muscles are firmer and I feel like I've got a shitload of energy.

This was kinda the scary part, especially since no one knows the long-term effects. I just decided to try it and see what happens.

There's also only a few videos on YT but I prefer watching/listening to this guy - https://www.youtube.com/user/Sethprince7/videos and then researching all the stuff he says. I've sent him a few emails too and got positive responses. Interesting guy to watch but he knows what he's talking about.

Watch the video from a month ago vs his latest RAD-140 video and you can CLEARLY see a huge difference in his upper muscles.

The company he's using is DNA Anabolics, which is expensive at $150 per bottle. BUT - he doesn't work for them, I think he either owns or works at http://newtritionalhealthcare.com/ which carries the Ostarine. I am using a different brand.


Edit: Lastly, I wouldn't fvck with RAD-140 or S4 (Andarine) due to the side effects and lack of research.

With that said, it's odd saying that Ostarine is working for me since it's been available for a long time... For something so positive you'd think more people would have jumped on it earlier. I'm thinking the prohormone ban is the cause for this new "hype" since SARMS are the new go-to supplement.

I'm glad you're seeing results! Exactly what I was hoping for.

My earlier post was to point out how skeptical I am of any supplement. And I named a few that had HUGE hype around them, yet never amounted to anything. I've been lifting seriously since 2003ish so I've seen them come and go. Remember when NO2 (nitric oxide) was $200 a bottle?

I used pro hormones for a couple cycles in 2004 and then they were "banned" in 2005. SARMS was being talked about back then. Only now are they getting attention.

The key term in there is muscle wasting.

SARMS are getting all the attention now because prohormones are 100% banned. I think these will also become banned in time or supplement companies will be hit by a huge lawsuit for using IP.

So I up'd the dosage to 25MG on Monday and I had some puffy nips Tuesday night. I went back down to 20MG and it appears that the puffyness is going away.

FYI I am prone to gyno, however there is no hard substance just looks like water retention.

I did arms last night and this stuff just makes working out really - odd.

I say odd because I tend to go all out when exercising, especially the arms. Usually I'll go until I can lift anymore; however I just never got to that point. It was like I could just keep going and going, really hard to explain.

With that said, I woke up this morning with ZERO pain in my arms and they are still looking nice and full from the workout.

I am using Olympus Labs Ostar1ne, from nutraplanet = $30-$50, bottle size
5mg - 240 caps

Though I've read a lot of people are using the brand DNA Anabolics = $150
15mg - 84 Caps



I am def going to try the DNA version next time to compare quality.

Light dosages can sometimes (or often) be worse than a full dose. Some drugs will cause shutdown at light doses but not produce results unless at full dose.

Are you talking about S2?

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Peak Nutri. I'm sure S2 is selling the stuff left and right though...can't go to the gym without seeing a dozen or more guys in their tshirts.

Looking much leaner but I've been watching my diet and doing more cardio.

I'm still getting one hell of a pump and feeling perfectly find the following morning. Again, I tend to lift until I can barley move the muscle I'm training so I'm impressed.

I started out at ~210 pounds and I'm down to 206... BUT, I've lost literally like 2" from my waist and my muscles are getting much fuller! Definitely helping lose fat and build muscle.
