Anabolic steroids have been closely linked with bodybuilding on the upper lip for many years, because of their unique ability to improve muscle mass build-up. On the other hand, unfortunately, too, a number of negative side effects often occur – for example by influencing other types of tissues that you really do not want, and so their sale and distribution are also illegal!
What are SARMs? Precisely because of the global effect of steroids on many tissues other than muscle tissue, researchers have for many years been interested in developing a type of preparation that can have the same positive effect on muscle tissue as the classic anabolic steroids but without affecting other types of tissue – selective androgen receptor modulators – or in the more mundane format SARMS.
Significant results – even without training!
Over the last decade, large amounts have been used in the pharmaceutical industry to develop this type of preparation in order to treat disorders and injuries that result in loss of muscle mass and strength but without the negative side effects. LGD-4033 is an example of one of the preparations that has been developed in this regard and the preliminary tests have been very promising!
In an American study, 76 male subjects were divided into four groups;
Placebo: A group receiving a placebo action instead of LGD-4033
0.1 mg: A group receiving 0.1 mg LGD-4033 per day for 3 weeks
0.3 mg: A group receiving 0.3 mg LGD-4033 per day for 3 weeks
1 mg: A group receiving 1 mg LGD-4033 a day for 3 weeks
After just three weeks, the people in the 1 mg group had increased their muscle mass by more than 1 kg – well to feel without training next to it! In addition, greater dosage tends to give greater effect, at least with the doses used here! It is therefore exciting later to see if even larger doses would give even greater effect – and what if you combined it with exercise?
