SARMs can be used for weight loss during a cutting cycle. But that’s not the whole story, and you can still burn more fat even as part of the normal bulking cycle if you know which SARMs to use.
So what you’re going to learn in the next few minutes by reading this is exactly how to use SARMs to cut fat. I’ll tell you exactly which SARMs burn fat the best, and which ones also help to preserve muscle mass as well.
Then I’ll tell you how to use SARMs to cut fat, both individually and as part of a potent cutting stack.
Plus, there’s no point in talking about all this if you can’t get the SARMs in the first place. The Chinese SARMs ban is biting, if you know where to look, you can still buy 100% pure SARMs at great prices. So I’ll also talk to you a bit about that as well.
Not All SARMs Are Good At Cutting Fat
I’m always amazed how so many people don’t really know how SARMs work, and yet they use them.
SARM stands for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator. It literally does what it says: it selectively activates androgen receptors, specifically in muscle and bone tissue only.
So SARMs are different to steroids, which activate all androgen receptors in the body. That’s why the use of steroids is so much more problematic.
Activated androgen receptors help us to build more muscle and improve bone density. They are brilliant for bodybuilding because they help to get faster and bigger gains.
But none of that is any good for cutting fat, it’s just not any good for losing weight.
The SARMs which are truly androgenic are RAD-140 Testolone, LGD-4033 Ligandrol, MK-2866 Ostarine (in a minor way), S-4 Andarine, and S-23.
However, that’s still not the whole story, because three of those can help to promote fat loss. I will cover those in more detail in a moment.
RAD-140 and S-23 are definitely not fat burning SARMs. They build bulk muscle, and are no good if you’re looking to cut.
I’ll also add to that list YK-11 and MK-677. They are not SARMs, but they do build lean muscle mass. They are no good at all for losing weight.
These SARMs Can Work For Weight Loss But Aren’t The Best
Now I want to talk to you about the “grey area” SARMs which can help to cut fat and lose weight, but aren’t the best at it.
Ostarine, Ligandrol, and Andarine are often talked about as being “cutting SARMs”. To an extent they are, and you will lose weight if you take them, but that’s not the whole story. They are not that efficient.
What all three of these SARMs do is excel at maintaining muscle mass in a calorie deficit. So if you are cutting, you won’t lose your tone unless you are dramatically cutting out calories for several weeks.
All three of them are androgenic, and all three of them at higher doses will require a PCT supplement. But at doses of around 20-30 mg, Ostarine won’t.
On their own, or stacked together, they are good at maintaining, and at higher doses, Ligandrol and Andarine will even build muscle. But they aren’t the best SARMs to use for weight loss.
The Best 3 SARMs To Use For Losing Weight
To lose weight, you have to change the energy balance in your body. You have to be burning more calories than you are taking in, it’s that simple.
SR-9009 Stenabolic and GW-501516 Cardarine other two SARMs that I specifically used during the cutting cycle.
Neither of them are actually SARMs at all. They are not androgenic in how they work.
Cardarine is a PPAR-Delta modulator, while SR-9009 is a REV-ERBa agonist. They don’t affect the androgen receptors at all.
Here’s why those non-androgenic SARMs really help with fat loss.
Cardarine works by increasing the activity of receptors that deal with metabolism. It triggers your body into doing the opposite of what it usually does. It will target fat burning for energy rather than the more readily available glucose.
On top of that, it will also enhance your activity levels and endurance, plus your cardiovascular performance. That’s why Cardarine is often referred to as “energy in a bottle”.
Stenabolic alters the chemicals which deal with our body clock, known as the circadian rhythm.
By doing this it promotes wakefulness. You’ll feel more energetic, and will be able to move faster and work harder. It increases fat oxidation, and our ability to use oxygen.
More than that, Stenabolic increases levels of fatty acids and glucose in muscle tissues, delivering a significant energy burst. That also allows muscles to use it as fuel after working out, and recover faster.
Those are the main to cutting SARMs. However, the third one is Ostarine.
But doses of less than 30 mg it’s not androgenic, while above this level and it can be a little suppressive.
But Ostarine is brilliant for maintaining muscle mass in a calorie deficit. It also increases energy levels.
So it doesn’t really help by telling the body to burn fat, nor does it dramatically increase energy levels which allow you to burn more calories, but it does help to maintain muscle mass when you are working in a calorie deficit.
That’s why Ostarine is brilliant for stacking with the other two SARMs I’ve just mentioned, because it allows a dramatic increase in energy expenditure, but not at the cost of muscle tone.
How To Create A Potent Fat Cutting SARMs Stack
Let’s now talk you through the potent fat loss stack of SARMs that I use to burn a ton of fuel and strip fat dramatically.
Here’s the SARMs cutting stack I use:
- 10 mg Cardarine
- 10 mg Stenabolic
- 20 mg Ostarine
- 10 week cycle
- Six week gap
- No PCT supplement needed
As you now know, what you’re getting is massive fat burning potential. On top of that, the decent dose of Ostarine helps to protect your muscle tissue during the time when you are in a calorie deficit for the cycle.
You could swap out the Ostarine for something a little more potent. Ligandrol and Andarine are basically upgrades of Ostarine. They do the same thing, but also have the potential to even slightly grow muscle mass at larger doses. However, I wouldn’t go higher than a dose of 10 mg per day of either.
My Experiences Using Fat Cutting SARMs Stack
If you’re just starting out with SARMs, it can be good to cut at the start. That way you are creating a good base to then bulk up from.
For your first SARMs fat loss stack, I would stick to one I’ve outlined above, using Ostarine as the muscle protecting base.
What I found was a dramatic increase in my ability to expend energy. An hour in the gym before feeling tired became 90 minutes. But I felt good afterwards, and I recovered quicker.
I found cardio easier, essential if you want to get fit and burn fat faster.
At the end of the cycle I’d shed 9 pounds of fat, but I looked good. The muscle tone was still there, in fact even better because I’d been working out so hard. Not bigger, but overall more defined and a perfect base to then bulk up from.
I tend to you now use Andarine instead of Ostarine. It’s chemically very similar, and you’ll not only protect your gains, but slightly improve them. Just be aware that if you upgrade to Andarine or Ligandrol that you will need a mild PCT supplement (Nolvadex is what I recommend).
Where To Buy SARMs To Help With Fat Reduction
I hope that’s been helpful to you guys, and I want to finish here by telling you where you should buy SARMs to help with bulking and cutting.
There’s a SARMs ban at the minute in China. They passed a law last year, under pressure from the Americans, to not only ban the export of SARMs, but to actually ban making them entirely.
The thing is though, it appears a lot of Chinese SARMs companies are ignoring it, or are selling off stock still. Certainly, there are no shortages with any of the USA-based SARMs sellers I use.
These are the three SARMs sellers I use, who I know sell 100% pure SARMs, backed up with purity guarantees, and who have all stated that there is no shortage in supply or need to raise prices:
1. Science.bio is usually the place I will go to first to buy SARMs online. Prices are good, and not only do they have all the main SARMs available, but a lot of the newer ones as well.
2. Swiss Chems are another fantastic SARMs seller that I often use. On the downside, they don’t often have liquid SARMs, but right now, they’ve got a significant discount on their SARMs capsules. Only about $10 more than liquid, you can get the same dose in capsule form, and let me tell you, especially for beginners, SARMs capsules are the best because of the ease of dosing.
3. Chemyo are another seller of pure SARMs. These guys are dirt cheap. They actually sell slightly larger 50 mL bottles, rather than the more usual 30 mL dropper bottles. So for around $60, you’ll get up to 40% more SARMs for your money.
