A Complete Guide to Stacking SARMs
The reason why SARMs have been so popular to the extent where they are taking the limelight from anabolic steroids is their ability to deliver excellent results with minimal to zero side effects. With these compounds, bodybuilders have managed to gain lots of muscle mass, cut on body fat and brilliant recomping results. With just a single SARM, a bodybuilder can gain more than a pound of muscle in one week throughout a single cycle without having to deal with any side effects. Now, take a moment to imagine just how will the results will be if you actually managed to use more than one SARM in a single cycle?! This is precisely what stacking SARMs is all about.
The beauty with SARMs is that they are so safe and friendly to our bodies and this is why we can use two or more of them to achieve better results in a much shorter time without any serious medical complications. This is something that you could hardly do with most other supplements and steroids out there. The effectiveness of stacking SARMs has become so popular not just to advanced athletes but also to newcomers who have already demonstrated tolerance to the compounds.
The thing with stacking SARMs, however, is that it only works well if you know the exact results you are looking for. As you may already know, different SARMs work towards achieving different fitness goals. Some are more effective in bulking while others are better off for cutting. A few can be used for recomping while others are better formulated for healing purposes. By knowing the sort of results you are looking for, you will be in a better position to know which stacks will work best for you.
We took the time to prepare this review in which we are going to give you the most comprehensive information on different SARMs stacks. We have grouped these stacks according to the different bodybuilding goals they are best for, and hence you should have an easy time choosing the best stack for you.
SARMs Stack for Bulking
One of the most popular SARMs for bulking is LGD-4033 also known as Ligandrol. This compound enhances glycogen storage and protein synthesis while stimulating blood flow to different cells. As a result, it boosts rapid muscle growth while reducing recovery time by ensuring that the efficient blood flow keeps your muscle and other body cells supplied with oxygen and nutrients.
Another incredible SARM useful for bulking is RAD-140 or Testolone. This compound is rumored to be as popular as testosterone except it achieves all the intended benefits without any undesired androgenic effects. Testolone is hence not just a fantastic choice for bulking but also an ideal stacking SARM.
Then we have the YK-11. An insanely powerful SARM that can give you unimaginable bulking results! YK-11 is a Myostatin inhibitor, i.e. it prevents the functions of Myostatin which is to avoid excessive muscle growth in the body. This removes the barrier to muscle growth thus allowing your body to grow new muscle mass.
Finally, we have MK-677. This SARM works like the human growth hormone but unlike the HGH compounds it is more affordable, and the method of administration is a lot better. While HGH compounds must be administered through injections, MK-677 comes in an oral solution.
So, in stacking these compounds, you need to be wary on the extent of bulking that you want. If you are interested in mild results, then your best stacking option is perhaps LGD-4033 and Mk677 which you should take over six weeks. In the first week, you can take 5mg of Ligandrol and 12.5mg of Mk-677. Increase the dosage to 10mg and 25 mg of Ligandrol and Mk-677 respectively for the next four weeks and then finish up with 15mg of Ligandrol and 32.5mg Mk-677.
If you are looking for drastic results, you can combine LGD-4033, MK-677, YK11, and Ostarine for eight weeks. The exact dosages will vary, and you’ll usually need to talk to your fitness advisor or SARMs supplier to get the precise dosage.
