SARMs should always be used in a cycle. Every SARM should be thoroughly studied before initiating a course. The duration of the course or cycle and the dosage recommendations should be abided by. There is a bit of room to tweak the course and dosage of almost every SARM but one must not be too experimental. SARMs should not be used for a prolonged period of time, especially those that tend to suppress one or more hormones. This comprehensive guide addresses every aspect of how to cycle SARMs.
How to Cycle SARMs
SARMs should be taken for specific objectives. The purpose could be bulking or cutting and it is usually both for bodybuilders and powerlifters. The objective may be to remedy muscle atrophy or wasting syndrome. Many people use SARMs to boost energy, endurance, strength, and agility without any specific goal of bulking or cutting. SARMs can be used for weight loss. A few SARMs can be used to boost human growth hormone among others. Some supplements also serve as testosterone boosters. Whether it is simply performance enhancement or trying to boost a specific hormone, all SARMs have a cycle and this should be lucidly planned out.
The cycle of a SARM depends on the objective and the nature of selective androgen receptor modulator. The cycle maybe four weeks. It may be for twelve weeks. Rarely does anyone take a SARM longer than ten to twelve weeks? If the results are not attained within such a period of time, they cannot be realized until other changes are made as something else is the problem and not the supplement. The cycle should be planned in such a manner that the other pieces fall into their rightful places. For instance, if someone is using a SARM for bulking, the new exercise or workout routine for the purpose should commence in time with the beginning of the cycle. A few SARMs should be started a week before bulking up. Some may have to be taken a few days before starting the bulking upcycle. The same approach applies to the cutting phase.
It is imperative to start with only one SARM at a time unless someone is accustomed to stacking. If this is your first time trying any SARM and its recommended cycle, do not stack and wait till you complete the entire course before you think of using any other supplement. Stacking is recommended for only those who have already tried at least one SARM. If you are thinking of using SARMs that have serious suppressive effects, then the cycle should be well planned and you must adequately prepare for the course. Changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle are necessary for the SARM to be effective and for you to avoid potential side effects. It is not just a period of time that matters when you cycle SARMs. Many other elements play a definitive role.
Benefits of Cycling SARMs
SARMs are cycled because they bring about changes that are desired but long term use of the same supplement has serious side effects. It is needless to use a SARM beyond its course when it may not have any more positive effect but can suppress hormones to an extent wherein you may have a deficiency. Hormonal imbalance is a serious problem but that can be averted by cycling SARMs safely and effectively.
There are many benefits of cycling SARMs. Users can attain the preset goal without being exposed to any risk. Careful calibration of dosage during the course enables a person to respond to the changes being experienced. A cycle involves starting with a mild dose and then increasing it gradually so the body starts to respond the way you want. All SARMs come with recommended doses. There is also clear instruction as to how the dose should be increased. The cycle also allows users to increase the dose to the maximum and then reaping the rewards before stopping its use so there are no adverse effects. A course followed up with a post cycle therapy ensures the hormonal balance is restored but the benefits still persist.
Side Effects of SARMs Cycle
If you choose the right cycle for a particular SARM, you are unlikely to experience any side effects. There may be mild side effects with a few SARMs but those subside naturally if the dose is not increased unnecessarily and if other factors are not a concern. For instance, people should change their diet and have a workout routine prior to taking a SARM. A cycle of SARM should not be adopted in isolation. Diet, exercise, and lifestyle are quintessential components in this course and play a consequential role.
There can be serious side effects of SARMs if the cycle chosen is wrong or if users stack multiple supplements without knowing their combined effect. For instance, if one SARM causes major suppression of a few hormones and another SARM also has similar effects, then the compounded impact can be unhealthy. There can be serious health problems with such stacking. Likewise, if a cycle is prolonged beyond the recommended period of time then hormones can get suppressed for several months. An ordinary post cycle therapy may not be of much help.
Switching from one SARM to another without a post cycle therapy can have side effects. A poorly planned post cycle therapy will also have side effects. Relying entirely on SARMs without making many changes to the nature of workout and diet has adverse effects. Just as SARMs are supposed to complement your exercise, your workout routine should also play a supportive role and extract the most out of the supplement. Only then can the best results be attained without being subjected to side effects.
How to Cycle SARMs Stack
When you have to stack two or more SARMs, you should follow the instructions or recommendations of each of them but also while bearing in mind the cumulative effect of the supplements. One SARM may have a recommended cycle of ten weeks. Another may have a cycle of twelve weeks. A third supplement might have a usual course of eight weeks. You can choose the recommended cycles so every SARM in this stack will run its course as per the standard practice. However, the cycle can be tweaked a little to have a safer yet better impact.
If one SARM is for bulking up and another in the stack is to support the same but by boosting the growth hormone, then the two can be introduced sequentially to have a greater impact. Similarly, the cycles can be planned in a way so the SARMs are phased into the course and then all of them are completed at the same time. The dosage of each of these SARMs being stacked must also be altered to be safe yet effective.
Research is the first step to cycling SARMs. You should have enough information at your disposal to make informed choices. Do not generalize SARMs. Do not have a generic approach to cycling supplements. Every stack has its own distinct nature and hence the cycle along with the dosage should be planned accordingly. Post cycle therapy is necessary after almost every course. Some SARMs do not suppress any hormone. Be sure about this before you decide to not have a post cycle therapy. Do not move from one SARM to another. There should be a cool off period, even if it is not a post cycle therapy per se. Always have at least four to six weeks between two cycles of SARMs.
