Benefits of SARMs
What are the benefits of SARMS?
SARMs have become very popular among athletes, bodybuilders, and the average gym-goer all looking to take their performance and physique to the next level, SARMs are very versatile and have different properties/molecular structures which make each unique in its effects.
SARMs for Bulking
SARMs are commonly used to bulk which is the goal of increasing lean muscle mass. Selective androgen receptors are great for building muscle as they attach on androgen receptors that are found in the muscle providing muscle-building benefits. With Sarms like LGD-4033 and RAD-140, you can expect to gain 10-15 pounds on a single 3-month cycle. Sarms in general also help to rebuild muscle fibers after workouts which leads to decreased delayed onset muscle soreness between gym sessions/training which allows you to train the same muscle group again quicker, ultimately increasing muscular hypertrophy further. SARMS will also dramatically increase muscular strength and power helping to break plateaus and accelerate progress in the gym, this really is no joke, you will notice your strength shoot up within the first two weeks of using the compounds.
SARMs for Cutting
Using SARMs for cutting which is the goal of decreasing body weight and overall body fat can yield amazing results as the majority of SARMs were created to prevent muscle wasting diseases so even in the lowest of caloric deficits you can hold on to that hard-earned muscle, and more often than not gain muscle and strength during a cutting phase as long as training is in check. SARMs can accelerate fat loss by increasing the oxidization of fatty tissue which in turn increases caloric expenditure reducing your weight whilst preserving muscle. Using Sarms to increase endurance can be great to increase fat loss, Cardarine, which is a well known Sarm that can dramatically increase cardiovascular and muscular endurance, allowing you to run that extra mile or get them extra reps needed to increase caloric output and burn fat at a rapid rate.
SARMs for body recomposition
SARMs are a great option for body recomposition. This is because of a lot of selective androgen receptor modulators help to build muscle whilst reducing body fat. For example, RAD-140 is a great example of this, the compound is very powerful and in a 3-month cycle, has the ability to help you put on 10-15 pounds of muscle whilst reducing your body fat percentage by 3-4%, which anyone with any lifting experience would know is crazy.
SARMs effect on recovery
For athletes and bodybuilders, SARMs can be very powerful and useful in terms of improving recovery. SARMs will dramatically reduce recovery times between workouts and training, this is great for progress as it reduces delayed onset muscle soreness allowing you to increase the frequency of workouts, therefore accelerating progressive overload and ultimately maximizing muscle gains made. On top of this, selective androgen receptor modulators can reduce the time needed to rest in between working sets, this is amazing if you are a bodybuilder or short on time as it allows you to keep up the intensity and complete more exercises during sessions.
As SARMs were initially developed to combat bone and muscle wasting diseases its no surprise that they have bone health benefits. Selective androgen receptor modulators bind to androgen receptors in the bone, making them great for bone health as they increase the uptake of calcium and iron, building mineral storage, therefore increasing bone strength reducing the likelihood of fractures and developing skeletal system-related diseases such as osteoporosis.
SARMs such as MK-677 has been proven to improve the quality of sleep when taken. Once the compound takes full effect it increases the amount of time an individual goes into REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. Rapid eye movement sleep is vital for restoring the mind and delivering energy to the brain. This is the stage of sleep where muscle fibers are rejuvenated and recovery takes place, this is what reduces recovery time and increases strength, etc.
SARMs have various other health benefits that generally get overlooked. Some of these include:
- increased energy
- cognitive enhancement
- Great for healing wounds and cuts
