My Personal Experience With Ostarine Increasing My Lifts

Introduction to Ostarine

Ostarine goes by other names like MK-2866 and Enobosarm. This Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator (SARM) has been well researched and proven to increase lean body mass as well as physical functionality. It also increases ligament health, tendon strength, and bone density, all while encouraging the expedited turn-over of collagen.

Ostarine is non-steroidal and causes tissue-selective anabolic effects in bone and muscle while sparing the androgenic effects from Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS). Whether you are looking at Ostarine to gain muscle during a bulk phase, or even preserving muscle when on a cut, I will elaborate my personal opinion about this powerful SARM.

When I first researched about PED’s some time back, my view on peptides and SARMs was jaded. After I heard my bodybuilding friends constantly talking about SARMs, peptides, and so on, I started doing more extensive research. I had never bothered to know anything about these ‘jargons’.

Why I decided to try Ostarine

I basically do the bridge in between cycles where I will use low doses of testosterone in order to maintain physiological test levels that are high and normal.

I completed experiments with several different approaches to my cut and bulking phases over some years. At the time, one of the things I really wanted to try was a cutting phase soon after my off-season. I did this to try and regain the sensitivity of my insulin so that I could begin bulking again.

Some years back, I had a bulk phase which was performing very well. I had quite a bad injury, which had to undergo immediate surgery within my bulk phase. To say the least, I was very annoyed as I had to cut off my season short while I was mid-way through it.

I was definitely not content with what I gained during the off-season. My diet habits during the surgery and recovery time were also somehow annoying. The inability to do any cardio or lifting obviously took a huge toll on my actual physique.

The sensitivity of my insulin became pretty tanked, and I also had too much body fast at the time for me to justify getting back instantly into a bulk phase right away. This was because after recovery I became too fat.

I just had to motivate myself by doing mini diets in order to get back to <10% of body fat, regain sensitivity to insulin, and then resume my off-season cycle that was abruptly cut short by surgery.

I did not prefer to use an intense cut down of a cycle in order to reach 10% of body fat, as I was just using a very small dose of testosterone at the phase of surgery and recovery. This is because I was trying to allow my body a break to prepare it for the hard hits it would be taking once I got back to my bulk phase.

A friend suggested that I should introduce Ostarine, or another SARM, into my supplement routine. He insisted that this would help me preserve muscle during my cut phase as I tried to mend the bridge between my two bulk phases during my recovery period, as well as after surgery.

He told me about his results after using Ostarine, then I did extensive research and made the final decision to give it a go.

My Ostarine Results And Overall Experience

The ultimate goal for the mini-diet was to cut off as much body fat as possible or get into the range of at least 9-10% bmi, while preserving my lean muscle mass and using the least possible amount of Performance Enhancing Supplementation.

The mini-cut became really successful. It put me in a perfect spot of starting my bulk back up in a better position that was relative to the composition of my body after the mini-diet.

I never lost any strength nor did l lose any lean muscle tissue, and I was able to probably get 8-9% off body fat with 3 sessions of cardio every week at about 25 to 30 minutes during my most involved part of the cut that took 6 weeks.

The Ostarine absolutely aided in keeping me stronger and harder than I would have been if I had simply opted to cut off on a small amount of testosterone.

In my opinion, my personal experience with Ostarine was awesome, as I increased on my compound lifts during the mini-cut. It is safe to say that I gained some lean muscle regardless of being under a calorie deficit.

What Are Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators?

SARMs

The main appeal of selective androgen receptor modulators, or SARMs for short, is that they increase the positive effects on strength as well as muscles. Although anabolic androgenic steroids and pro-hormones offer the same effects, SARMs are thought to have lesser side effects when compared to them.
It was in the 1940s when SARMs were first discovered after the chemical structure of the testosterone molecule was modified by researchers. Due to the fact that the earlier SARMS were derivatives of the testosterone molecule, they were mostly considered as another form of steroids.
In later years, nonsteroidal SARMs were developed which were made from cyclic quinolinones. These were produced by Ligand Pharmaceuticals and were considered to be the first nonsteroidal SARMs ever produced.

SARMs
SARMs are also produced with individuals diagnosed with male hypogonadism in mind. Hypogonadism is a condition in which testosterone is not produced in appropriate quantities by the male body. Depression, muscle loss and fat gain are some of the other conditions that accompany hypogonadism.
Apart from being a treatment option for hypogonadism, SARMs can also be used to treat conditions that accompany age without being a detriment to the prostate.
What SARMs do is that the key receptors in blood tissues are either blocked or stimulated in order to increase the positive effects that come with it. Muscle mass is proved to expand whereas the typical increase in hormones or the shutting down of the Hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal-axis or the HPG axis is minimized.
Apart from the inflation in muscle, SARMs also promote fat loss as well as bone mass. The ideal SARM should only be taken once every day whereas the bone and muscle effects must be evident. The effects in the prostate which are undesirable should also be close to nothing for SARMs to be ideal.
SARMs are not only used by athletes but also other sectors in the population. People who are affected by muscle wasting disorders and body weakness or wasting that comes with diseases such as HIV or cancer can also benefit significantly from SARMs.

The drugs that can be used to cure said diseases are plentiful, but the advantage with SARMs is that the drug would be non-aromatized as well as non-methylated. This means that the liver is not affected by unwanted toxins. The chance of them being converted into an active androgen or estrogen is also very extremely less.
