Hey there wannabe juicers. Since you are reading this Ostarine (MK-2866) review, we figure that you are veering towards your maiden PED cycle.
But you are on the fence about hopping on to real gear.
We don’t blame ya. Gear isn’t for everyone.
Definitely not for someone who isn’t prepared to accept it as a lifestyle. Because after that first cycle, chances are that you will keep yearning for more.
The next best thing that your research throws up is SARMS.
But again, the conundrum is whether these research chemicals are really as mild as they are touted to be.
You don’t want to end up with a neat pair of tits after a few weeks with your maiden SARMS cycle, do you?
That’s why we recommend Ostarine to anyone who’s looking to dabble in PEDs.
Here are 9 traits of Osta that make it the perfect 1st-cycle compound for rank newbies.
#1 – Least suppressive among all SARMS
Ostarine, also called Enobosarm is one of the least suppressive SARMS available currently.
So, even at performance enhancement doses, which usually ranges from 15-25mg/day, the chances of a complete shutdown of your endogenous testosterone production is close to zilch.
It may not even suppress you by 50% at those doses, which is very likely with stronger SARMS like LGD-4033.
There are two ways to go about this. You can either start with the least suppressive SARM at a reasonable dose and see how your body responds to it.
Or, you can start with a high dose of the strongest compound and put those virgin receptors to good use. Prudence and experience suggests that the first method will yield better results while minimizing the risk of side effects.
#2 – Ostarine helps maintain lean muscle during a cut
Ostarine is usually used by athletes and recreational users to prevent muscle loss during an aggressive cut.
And it is very effective at this. Even if you are eating in a calorie deficit, you might still gain up to 2-4 lbs. of lean mass.
More importantly, you will not lose any muscle mass, which is close to impossible on aggressive cutting cycles.
So, even if you have not perfected your diet, which a lot of newcomers are guilty of, you can still end up making decent gains with Ostarine. Whereas if you were to opt for a stronger compound, you may end up gaining a boatload of water, particularly if you don’t have your diet dialed down to perfection.
#3 – Ostarine helps build muscle during a surplus
Enobosarm showed a dose dependent increase in lean body mass in a group of healthy, elderly men and women according to a clinical study conducted in Sep 2011.
No adverse effects were noted.
In fact, the results were compared with the anabolic effects of testosterone without the stress on the prostate and the androgenic side effects of test.
This means that if you exercise, eat in a surplus, then you can use Ostarine to bulk up as well. So, if you have heard or read that Osta is only effective in a cut, then that’s BS.
It will still bind to your androgen receptors and signal it to make more muscle. The amount of muscle you gain will depend on your dinner plate.
#4 – Moderate strength gains
Ostarine gives you a nice strength boost. But it’s moderate at best. Just the way it should be for a first cycle.
Nothing crazy that can make you go overboard resulting in an injury.
But with consistent training, you can easily surpass your best lifts by week 5 or 6 of your cycle.
#5 – Effective even at low doses
Just like LGD-4033, Ostarine is surprisingly effective even at low doses. In the clinical trial that we mentioned above, volunteers gained an average of 3 lbs. of lean muscle mass at just 3mg/day.
Most users looking for performance enhancement will use at least 15mg/day if not more. Most people do 25mg/day.
With a dose dependent curve and increase in lean muscle mass, you can make significant gains with your first Ostarine cycle, even if you were to dose low.
#6 – Well tolerated at higher doses
Based on anecdotal reviews, even doses as high as 30mg/day are tolerated exceptionally well in healthy men.
There are no adverse effects other than suppression of endogenous testosterone.
So, if you have completed a first cycle with 10mg/day, you can take a break for a couple of months and do a second cycle at 20mg/day without the risk of too many side effects.
#7 – Keepable gains
None of the clinical trials have reported serious adverse effects with Ostarine.
Even anecdotal reports suggest that it might be the safest of all SARMS being sold online currently.
There is no testicular pain, no hot flashes, no headaches, joint aches or insomnia, all of which are reported with other SARMS.
You won’t look like a bloated mess either. The gains are dry, lean and you can easily maintain it even after you come off the drug.
#8 – The only SARM to make it to Phase III of human trials
As of now, Ostarine is one of the only SARMS to make it to Phase III of human clinical trials without being dropped midway or without being discontinued due to serious risks.
In fact, even when it failed the endpoint for Urinary stress incontinence in women, GTX is actively pursuing the drug in Europe.
All other SARMS have either been tested in-vivo or on lab rats.
#9 – Ostarine has Less chances of being laced with prohormones
Since most people go into an Ostarine cycle expecting slow and steady gains, manufacturers don’t see a reason to spike it with prohormones or oral steroids.
There is a risk of that happening with stronger compounds like LGD-4033, RAD140 and YK-11, where people expect dramatic transformations overnight.
Don’t get caught up in the LGD vs. Osta vs. Rad debates on messaging boards.
Try Ostarine for your first SARMS cycle and we are sure that you won’t be disappointed with it.
