LGD 4033 (Ligandrol): Ultimate SARM for Muscle Growth
LGD 4033 (also known as ligandrol) is one of the most popular SARMs on the market today. Although it is not a steroid, it has the ability to increase muscle mass very quickly. Because of this, it is extremely popular in the fitness and bodybuilding and fitness communities. Today we will look at this SARM in depth, including safety consideration when incorporating LGD-4033 into your cycle.
What is LGD 4033
LGD 4033 is a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator. Basically, it is a compound that targets specific androgens in the body. In this case, it specifically targets muscle growth and increased bone density. LGD 4033 is able to do this without increasing prostate size, which is one of the more common side effects of using anabolic steroids.
In a nutshell: ligandrol helps you build muscle mass without a ton of side effects. It has also been shown to not be nearly as suppressive as testosterone, which means you can cycle it without having fear of long term shutdown.
Because of the legality of SARMs, you can only buy LGD 4033 online as a research chemical. This is how companies get away with selling it legally. Until it is approved by the FDA, this will be the only way to buy LGD 4033 online.
Is LGD 4033 Safe?
There have been multiple studies done on this compound in the last few years. Each one has shown the following:
LGD 4033 has very little toxicity in the body
Subjects who were given this SARM increased lean body mass (muscle) and bone density)
Mild suppression of testosterone when taken for long periods of time.
How to Correctly Dose LGD-4033
Ligandrol is a relatively new compound, but after many user experiences, people have found the “sweet spot” for dosing to be around 10mg per day. In clinical trials, doses as low as 1mg per day were shown to increase lean body mass. Anything higher than 10mg per day usually causes side effects (explained below). A good break down of an LGD 4033 cycle is as follows:
I usually suggest keeping cycles at 6 weeks. The reason I like to ramp up the dosage slowly is to give the body time to adapt to the compound and measure side effects. Because studies show that LGD is effective even at doses as low as 1mg per day, there’s no reason to jump right into 10mg per day right off rip. More experienced users can go up to 8 or even 12 weeks, just make sure you follow a proper PCT protocol when you come off in order to get your natural testosterone levels back up to par.
