By October 8, 2020September 14th, 2023No Comments

At the moment sarms are getting more popular every day. From young people in their early 20’s to the older generation above 40 the popularity increased significantly over the last years. Also the amount of information about sarms on internet is increasing as we speak.

When looking for the right information about sarms and also how to use sarms for beginners, it is not easy to determine which information to use. From complicated research posts to simple guidelines, it can be a jungle of information to choose from. So in this blog I will try to simplify all relevant information on how to use sarms.

Fist of all make sure you buy your sarms at a trustworthy vendor. You can look around or simply choose for our shop, SARMXXL. We sell all our sarms as capsules, liquids or raw powder. Also our prices are very competitive. All our sarms have been third party tested to ensure the best quality. We offer 9 different kind of sarms. All our capsules and liquids comes in 3 different doses to choose from so we can serve beginners as well as professionals.

So most people new to sarms will mostly try the milder sarms. The milder sarms are Ostarine (MK2866), Cardarine (GW501516), Ibutamoren (Mk677) and Stenabolic (SR9009). These sarms have hardly any side effects and don’t need a PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) after the cycle. Only when ostarine is used in high doses I would recommend a PCT.

So I start with one of the most popular compound, Ibutamoren. Ibutamoren is not actually a sarm but a growth hormone secretagogue. It have the ability to stimulate growth hormone levels. And these growth hormones play a very important role in developing muscle and tissue. The main effects are :

  • increase muscle grow
  • prevent muscle waisting
  • increase bone density
  • heals wounds
  • improves sleep
  • has a positive effect on hair, skin and nails
  • boost growth hormone levels
  • helps fat burning

You may experience side effects such as swollen joints, pain in muscles and joints, tingling skin, increased water retention and increased appetite. Many run Ibutamoren solo but most people use this compound in combination with other sarms. It combines good with Testolone, Ligandrol, Ostarine and S-23. Especially the increase of appetite and the sleep improvement are the main benefits when combining Ibutamoren with other sarms to bulk. The dosage is 10-30 mg a day.

Besides Ibutamoren, another excellent sarm to start with is Ostarine. Ostarine was designed to treat people with muscle waisting conditions. It has the ability to increase muscle mass and preserving muscle mass. The main effects are:

  •  increase muscle mass
  •  preserving muscle
  •  boost strength
  •  stimulate fat loss (little)

At lower doses it has no side effects but at higher doses it can cause mild side effects such as headaches, nausea and muscle pain. Also you might need a PCT at higher doses. It combines with Ibutamoren, Andarine and Cardarine. Especially the stack of Cardarine and Ostarine is the most popular sarm stack for beginners.  The dosage is 10-30 mg a day.

Next sarm on the list is Cardarine. Cardarine was originally developed for its potential benefits on the heart, blood vessels and diabetes. It is not really a sarm but a PPAR-delta pathway activator. The PPAR-delta have the ability to activate a large number of fat burning genes. The main effects are :

  • burns fat
  • boost endurance
  • reduces recovery time
  • suppress inflammation

There are no known side effects using cardarine. It combines with Ostarine, Andarine and Stenabolic. The dosage is 10-20 mg a day and taken 30 min before workout. It is an excellent sarm for cutting.

Stenablic is a sarm which is not so widely used. It have great benefits but a very short half-life. Due to that the intake must be spread over 4 times a day. the dosage is 10-30 mg a day. It combines with  testolone, Ligandrol and Cardarine.  The main effects are :

  • helps to loose weight
  • increases endurance
  • protects from heart diseases
  • reduces blood cholesterol
  • decrease inflammation
  • decrease anxiety
  • decrease tissue damage

So these 4 are the mild sarms and most of the people who want to try out sarms will start with Ibutamoren, Cardarine or Ostarine. Also a combination of these 3 is very common for a starter. After this 4 milder sarms comes 2 harder sarms, Testolone (RAD140) and Ligandrol (LGD4033). These 2 have more chance on side effects and a PCT is recommended for Testolone and also for Ligandrol especially with higher doses.

The hardest components are YK11, S23 and Andarine (S4). These have strong side effects and S23 can even lead to a complete shutdown. These harder compounds I will discuss in my next blog, how to use sarms for experienced users.

When you want to enter the world of sarms my advice is to start with Ostarine. It will give the most gains from the milder sarms with hardly side effects. Always start with a low dose and you can always up the dose after 3 weeks when feeling good.
