If you’re one of those people who has spent months at the gym religiously, worked hard, but hit a plateau, then SARMs will definitely be something you’ll be wanting to consider to push yourself up to the next level. In this guide, not only are we going to talk about the best SARMs for cutting, but how to create the best SARMs stack for bulking, cutting, strength, and maintenance stack as well.
But not just that, in this guide, I’m going to tell you about what SARMs stack work for women, and why it works to achieve the goals of most women have.
I’ll talk you through the different types of SARMs, and tell you about the top six in detail. Not only that, but I’ll also finish this guide by recommending you t3 vendors that I use to deliver 100% pure SARMs that help me to achieve my goals more quickly than I could ever achieve them naturally.
Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) work in the body by targeting androgen receptors in muscle and bone tissue. They modulate the messages, increasing their frequency and mimicking testosterone in effect, leading to dramatic muscle growth.
Even in muscle wasting illnesses and a calorie deficit, SARMs can at least halt muscle wastage, and can in many circumstances still increase muscle growth while cutting fat at the same time. SARMs were never designed for bodybuilders, they are research chemicals that have never been fully tested for the purposes of helping people with degenerative muscular illnesses.
But they have been hijacked and reproduced on the grey market used by bodybuilders to achieve the goals of bigger muscles and better fat cutting than you could ever achieve naturally.
But that’s not the whole story and some SARMs aren’t true SARMs at all. YK-11, GW-501516 Cardarine, and MK-677 Ibutamoren are all classed as SARMs for marketing purposes but don’t have androgenic effects at all (they do not mimic testosterone).
Before I get into the details of the most popular SARMs and telling you about the four most effective SARMs stacks you can put together, I want to just tell you how to spot the high quality SARMs.
If you don’t get SARMs that are high in purity then you will not get the best experience, and you run the risk of having the SARMs cut with something undesirable (one study found that some SARMs were actually cut with anabolic steroids to make them go further and be stronger).
These are the traits of the best quality SARMs:
If you don’t get all the above things, then the product you are buying will not be potent and you will be wasting money and putting yourself more at risk.
Even that short checklist actually rules out that 90% of the online sellers out there. Later on, I’m going to tell you about the three companies I by my SARMs from that definitely do deliver on all those key things.
There are more than six main types of SARMs, but I’m only going to talk about the top six here.
I’m not going to talk directly about S-23 because it’s very untested and is incredibly suppressive, and you can get the same results with a far more widely used Testolone.
SR-9009 is also widely available, but it isn’t a true SARM. It’s a type of PPAR alpha modifier, which is very similar to Cardarine which is a PPAR Delta modifier. As Cardarine is far more widely used and has a long track record in being used illegally in sports to get a noticeable performance boost, I’m just sticking with recommending Cardarine.
If you’re looking for the most versatile SARM, then Ligandrol (LGD-4033) could be exactly what you’re looking for. Not to be confused with its younger cousin LGD-3303, this is one of the most widely used SARMs out there.
It’s mildly androgenic, and in common with Ostarine helps to protect muscle by telling the body to cut fat. But it’s slightly more powerful and slightly more androgenic than Ostarine, which means you can actually build lean muscle as well. So it’s great for bulking all cutting and brilliant for maintenance.
Ligandrol is usually dosed quite conservatively, as low as 2 mg per day, up to a maximum sensible dose of around 25 mg per day.
Although one of the most popular SARMs, Cardarine isn’t actually one at all. Also known by the alphanumeric name GW-501516, it’s in reality a PPAR delta modulator (agonist). But it’s marketed in the same way as SARMs and has similar effects in the body but they are not androgenic.
Cardarine affects your energy and metabolism levels. It reduces glucose utilization and tells the body to increase the oxidation of fatty acids. In layman’s terms that means it will tell your body to burn fat before it burns glucose, meaning you will lose weight, and get enhanced endurance because of the extra reserves of energy being called on.
That’s why Cardarine has been so used by sportspeople and is known as “energy in a bottle”. It’s usually dosed quite conservatively, as low as 2 mg, and sometimes as high as 10 mg, with some people pushing dose of 20 mg, but rarely higher.
Ostarine (MK-2866) is the original member of the SARM family. It’s very mild, and although slightly androgenic, it’s rare that on its own at lower doses you would need any sort of PCT supplement.
Ostarine is perfect for cutting fat because it tells the body to maintain muscle and burn fat instead.
That’s the opposite of what the body does naturally, and it’s really beneficial for bodybuilding because it means you can protect your gains even in a calorie deficit. It’s so mild that it’s the ideal beginner’s steroid alternative.
Ostarine won’t affect your testosterone levels unless you take a very high dose, meaning that you can have quite high doses and they are well tolerated. A typical dose is around 20 mg per day, sometimes pushing it as high as 40 mg.
Andarine (S4) is a really versatile member of the SARMs family. It’s mildly androgenic, more so than Ostarine or Ligandrol, but not aggressively so. But it does have a good anabolic effect in muscle and bone, making it very good for developing lean muscle mass and building bone strength.
It also helps to reduce fat as well, which is why it often talked about as one of the best SARMs for cutting. But for me it’s not actually as good as LGD-4033 in that respect, and probably comparable to Ostarine, but you will get stronger anabolic effects as well. It also improves energy levels, so it’s a good all-rounder to use as one of the best SARMs for cutting, or creating the best SARMs stack for maintenance.
Andarine does have one fairly common side effect at higher doses, namely, it can affect vision. It can tint your vision yellow. However, this effect does disappear between cycles. A typical dose to avoid this side effect completely is below 50 mg per day.
RAD-140 Testolone is a strongly anabolic member of the SARMs family. In fact, initial studies demonstrated that it has a stronger binding affinity than testosterone to the androgen receptors. That makes it very aggressive, in line with an anabolic steroid. However, it is highly selective of bone and muscle tissue, which is not in common with anabolic steroids.
Testolone is therefore not a great SARM for cutting on its own unless you stack it with something else. On its own, it can develop huge muscle gains and explosive strength really quickly. That’s why is used for building up muscle and strength rapidly and can be used both in bulking and maintenance stacks with ease.
It’s very potent and is usually dosed at around 20 mg or less, with a low dose being 5 mg per day.
MK-677 is another SARM that actually isn’t one at all. In reality, it’s a growth hormone secretagogue. It mimics the action of something called Ghrelin in the body. This mimicking helps to raise levels of both HGH and IGF-1, both the key building blocks in developing muscle mass.
It also has been shown to improve energy expenditure, sleep quality, and help to burn fat more readily than muscle or glucose. Put together, it’s a brilliant all-round anabolic steroid alternative that basically an honorary member of the SARMs family.
On the downside though it definitely dramatically increases your appetite. So although it can cut fat, if you don’t really watch your diet when you are using this stuff, you can pack on some bulk as well. In terms of dosage, a low dose is around 10 mg, and the upper sensible dose is about 25 mg daily.
A basic SARMs stack can be as simple as a pair of SARMs stack together to amplify a single effect like bulking, cutting, or multiple effects. For example, you could stack one that gives you strength and endurance with bulking SARMs that it can push yourself harder, or the same with burning energy for cutting or maintenance.
Best SARMs Stack For Cutting
The best stack for cutting obviously has to contain at least one SARM that tells the body to burn fat and preserves muscle. But it should also contain one that helps to increase endurance you can burn more energy in the first place.
For me, this is the best SARMs stack for cutting:
As you can see, this cycle is all about the tens, which is why it’s easy to remember. The combo of Ligandrol and Ostarine will burn fat, while Cardarine will underpin it by upping your energy levels to you expend the energy to burn more fat.
The PCT supplement you’ll need will be Nolvadex because this stack for cutting is not majorly suppressive.
Stack For Gaining Muscle
Now let’s talk about gaining muscle, bulking up. Not only bulking buttoning your muscle and making it harder as well.
The best SARMs stack for bulking I’ve ever used is this:
With this bulking stack, you will pack on tons of lean muscle and have loads of energy. You’ll protect your gains, and even maybe strip a bit of fat.
You will need a PCT supplement. You could get away with Nolvadex, but you might need Clomid, especially for the first couple of weeks post cycle.
Once you’ve bulked, and once you’ve cut, and once you build up your strength, which usually takes several cycles (usually a couple of bulking, one cutting, and one focusing on strength), you may be happy and just want to maintain your gains.
If that’s the case, then this is, in my opinion, the best SARMs stack for maintenance:
What this stack does is build your strength and endurance using the combination of the energy boost from Cardarine, and the mildly anabolic nature of the other two SARMs in the stack. Plus, you’ll cut a little bit of fat and gain a little bit of muscle.
It’s not hugely anabolic so you will probably only need Nolvadex as your PCT supplement.
Stack For Strength And Endurance
So lets now talk about using SARMs for strength and endurance building. Some people get confused and think that’s about gaining muscle, bulking up, but that’s not actually the case.
We are talking just as much about gaining strength in the muscle as developing its tone, and also we are talking about increasing your fitness and endurance, and your vascularity which will allow you to get more oxygen to where you need it.
For me, this is the best SARMs stack for building strength and endurance:
What you’re getting with this SARMs combo is the slightly anabolic nature of Andarine giving you that testosterone like boost. Plus MK-677 releasing growth hormones and building both endurance and muscle tone. Plus, a strong dose of Cardarine which will give you superb energy, allowing you to develop fitness and vascularity.
You may need a PCT supplement with this because of the Andarine, but if you do, it will only be a minor dose of Nolvadex.
Recommended Stack For Females
Women can benefit from SARMs in the same way that men can, but they mostly have different bodybuilding goals, which will define the types of SARMs that they use.
Women tend to see the best SARMs stack is one that will help to build stamina and strength, and cut fat, and tone them up. But gaining bulk and lean muscle tone is something most don’t want to achieve.
Also, women don’t need very high doses of SARMs in the way that men do. So the best SARMs stack for females to achieve cutting, strength, and some tone is as follows:
What this simple female SARMs stack does is deliver strength and endurance through Cardarine, cuts fat and protects muscle tone with Ostarine, and then uses either Ligandrol or Andarine for a slight anabolic edge helps to tone muscle and deliver strength.
Before I move on to telling you where you can buy the best steroid alternatives with three detailed SARMs reviews of the best vendors out there, I want to talk to you about those SARMs before and after photos, you will see.
Please just ignore them. Most of them are stock images, a lot of them are more to do with steroids and SARMs, and you literally don’t know the history and bodybuilding background of the person in the photo.
For me, the only way you can find out how good SARMs stack will be for you to do them for a few cycles to see what results you get against your natural benchmark.
So let’s finish here by telling you where the best SARMs for cutting, bulking, and strength can be bought.
All three of these webstores have moneyback guarantees, they purity test every batch of SARMs they get through an independent third-party lab, and they publish those purity reports on the product webpages.
I’ve used all of these myself over the past two years, and they have very strong reputations amongst the online bodybuilding communities as well.
These guys should be number one on anyone’s list as far as I’m concerned. The SARMs they sell are at the minute imported from China, however, that could change as China has banned the manufacturer and export of SARMs. This could have far-reaching consequences for the whole SARMs mark in the USA.
At the minute, they buy in Chinese SARMs in powder format. They then batch test them for purity, and then they make it into high-quality SARMs liquid.
To give you an idea of price, 1500 mg of Andarine S-4, dosed at 50 mg/mL costs just $79.99. The raw powder is far cheaper at $49.99 for 1000 mg.
Another great place to buy really good quality SARMs from are Proven Peptides. These guys actually buy SARMs from labs in the USA. So there’s no importing at all. For me, that’s a better quality guarantee, but you do pay for that.
It is still independently third-party lab tested, and the purity reports published on the website for your peace of mind.
In terms of pricing, sometimes you will pay a little more, and sometimes you won’t. Let’s stick with the example of Andarine. The same 30 mL dropper bottle costs $74.99 the same 50 mg/mL dosage, so actually slightly cheaper than Science.bio, but that’s not the same for all of the SARMs which do tend to be around $10 more expensive.
Last on my list is Swiss Chems. They sell all the main types, and the quality is just as good as the other two sellers I’m recommending to you in these reviews.
These guys only sell SARMs in powder format. But it is a powder that’s been put into capsules, so you are getting the ultimate in convenience in terms of dosing and taking SARMs. But you do pay for that convenience.
To carry on with the Andarine example, 60 capsules, each dosing 25 mg for a total overall dose of 1500 mg in the bottle, retails at $139.95. So as you can see, far higher than the other formats, but so convenient that you can dose at the gym, and never have to weigh anything, or worry about whether you are getting the dose right with the sublingual liquid.
The other thing that makes these guys unique is that they also sell Clomid and Nolvadex, something unique amongst SARMs sellers I’ve ever seen. You can get the SARMs and the PCT supplements all from one place with high quality guarantees.
What I want to do a few in this quick guide is to tell you how you can spot the highest quality SARMs for sale. It’s actually not as easy as you think, and you could rule out 90% of the sellers out there pretty quickly.
I’m going to go into a bit of detail about why getting your hands on the highest quality SARMs, that are high in purity, is crucial, and tell you where you definitely cannot buy good quality SARMs and other supporting supplements from.
Plus, I’m going to tell you what I found to be the best SARMs source, by giving you a detailed review of the three best SARMs companies that I’ve purchased from over the last four years of using SARMs to develop my body way above what I ever achieved before naturally.
Let me show you exactly why it’s so important to buy pure SARMs that you can find.
This actually shocked me when I read about it a couple of years ago, and I want to make sure I pass it on to you here so you can understand the importance I’m attaching to this. It’s your body and mind, and you have to be careful.
In 2016 a research team analyzed the samples they purchased online from SARMs sellers around the Internet. They purchased samples from 44 different sellers, a total of 44 different types of SARMs.
What they found was that only 52% of those purchases actually contain SARMs. Think about that, it’s incredible. 48%, nearly half, of the SARMs sold from easily searchable websites, the ones you will come across yourself, actually not contained SARMs at all.
That’s absolutely mind-blowing, and it’s exactly why it’s important to buy the highest quality stuff from reputable sellers. It’s also crucial that you learn how to spot those sellers.
So now you understand how important it is to find the SARMs for sale that are 100% pure, let’s look at the traits of the best SARMs company that you can start to learn how to spot them for yourself:
To that list, I’m going to add “gut feeling”. You know what I mean, and I’m pretty sure if you have been online looking for SARMs for sale, you’ll have seen some websites that you would never, ever, consider buying SARMs from. Learn to spot those signs.
There are some obvious red flags for buying SARMs under certain circumstances.
Don’t go near SARMs on any marketplace sites. They do sometimes pop up on places like eBay. They aren’t meant to be there, but they are sometimes for sale. Don’t go near them, they are the ones that are going to not SARMs at all, or completely cut with rubbish to make the SARMs go further.
Don’t buy directly from Chinese sellers either. A site like Alibaba is a good example of the sort of place you should avoid buying from. Although most SARMs are Chinese made, when they are sold through third-party marketplace sites, they are almost universally bad quality, or even dangerous.
I’ll also mention that the supply of Chinese SARMs is going to dry up. That’s because China has banned the export of SARMs, under pressure from the USA. They have also actually in December 2019 banned the manufacturer of SARMs as well.
As with everything that comes out of China, it doesn’t matter if it’s licensed or allowed or not, it will still get made, but it will be on the black market. As well as that, manufacturers of these substances will move to other countries, in the end, places like India and Russia for example.
So be careful Chinese sellers because the quality is going to be more variable in the near future stocks dry up because they are going to start being made illegally.
Always look for those guarantees of quality, and never buy from a company that doesn’t offer the purity reports for you to view.
I’m saving you a bit of hard work by giving you some benchmark companies I use myself to buy SARMs from.
Although I’ve put them in the top one, two, three order, you could order from any of them depending on the type of SARMs you want, convenience, and your gut feeling on which would be best for you.
But any of them will do, because they will be a great starting point for selling 100% pure products to you that are definitely of the highest quality.
Science has been around for several years and recently rebranded from irc.bio due to some issues with the feds apparently.
But that appears to be behind them and they now sell a fantastic range of SARMs from the new website, but it’s the same SARMs, and the same people.
They have tons of great feedback online, especially on knowledgeable sites like Reddit. You always get someone who’s had a bad experience, but that is often nothing to do with the quality of the SARMs. Overwhelmingly though, these guys are one of the best in the business for delivering high purity and performance.
These are the benefits of ordering from Science.bio:
They sell all the main types of SARMs: Cardarine, Ostarine, Testolone, Andarine, Ibutamoren, YK-11, Ligandrol, S23. All of these core SARMs are really high quality and will give you a fantastic experience. I use them all myself over the years and have created some really potent stacks. The strength of SARMs is in the stack, don’t use them individually, make sure you stack at least two together to multiply the benefits from the hard work you do.
But they also sell some really rare SARMs, things like LGD-3303 (a new variant of Ligandrol), and AC-262, amongst others. I’ve not tried any of these because I’ve stuck to the core SARMs that a lot of people use, but if you are more experimental, and there’s one you’ve heard good things about and want to try, then these guys will sell it to you with very high purity.
Pricing is also very good. You won’t find a better value than this, I certainly haven’t. To give you an example of pricing, let’s look at the classic SARM Ostarine MK-2866.
For me, it’s the perfect beginner’s SARM, and I still use it at quite a high dose in a cutting phase to great effect from these guys. 1000 mg of raw powder costs the ridiculously low price of $29.99, while 900 mg of suspended liquid SARMs solution, dosed at 30 mg/mL, costs just $44.99. So as you can see, the outlay even to create a good quality SARMs stack is going to be quite low.
The second SARMs source that I can recommend to you is Swiss Chems. Based in the USA like Science.bio, they offer really high-quality SARMs imported from China.
They’ve been around for a couple of years, and have a good track record. The only thing I have noticed about them is that sometimes what they sell varies. Sometimes they sell injectables, tablets/capsules, and sublingual liquid, and other times just capsules, so I’m going to focus on the capsules in this review of the SARMs they have for sale.
These are the key reasons why I like ordering from Swiss Chems:
Swiss Chems sell seven main types of SARMs: S-23, YK-11, Ostarine, Cardarine, Ligandrol, Testolone, YK-11.
At the time of writing this review, they only sell them in capsules. SARMs capsules are the ultimate inconvenience. You can dose them on the go, and you never have to worry about weighing anything, or dripping the right amount under your tongue; it’s all there in the capsule. The exact dose, nothing to worry about.
But you do pay for that privilege. You pay a significant premium for them packing the powder into capsules, which can be quite a laborious process.
So let’s look at pricing by looking at the price of Ostarine again. A total dose of 380 mg, in 60 capsules each of 10 mg, is $113.96. So as you can see, twice the price of sublingual liquid for a lower dose.
If money is no option, and you want the highest quality SARMs possible in convenient capsule form, then Swiss Chems are definitely for you though.
Also, I’ll mention it Swiss Chems the only place to sell purity guaranteed Nolvadex and Clomid as well. I’ve always found it astonishing that SARMs sellers don’t also sell the PCT supplement you will need between cycles. But Swiss Chems are one of the few who do, making it incredibly convenient to get your SARMs and your PCT supplements all in one order.
Although the prices are high, you can actually get 33% off the price you pay. If you pay using bitcoin through Amazon (full instructions on their website), you will get your SARMs at 33% discount, knocking the price down considerably. It’s a bit of a convoluted process, and I haven’t done it myself yet, but if you really want to save one third on your SARMs capsules then it’s a brilliant way of doing it that is little-known.
Third, on my list is is Proven Peptides.
Don’t take that as meaning they are the third choice webstore you should buy from. Proven Peptides have several differences which really make them stand out, and in many people’s eyes they are the number one best SARMs source in the USA today.
They sell all the major types of SARMs in liquid dropper bottle format: Ostarine, Cardarine, Andarine, YK-11, Ibutamoren, SR-9009, Ligandrol. The only one they don’t sell is S-23. They never have, and I don’t know why, it could be because it’s closer to an anabolic steroid than most SARMs, and perhaps that’s something they don’t want to sell.
Let’s just take a look at a snapshot of why Proven Peptides are so popular before I go into the details:
I want to talk about the crucial part first. The product that they sell are made in the USA, which is pretty unique. I’m not sure they are made for the company, or if the wholesaler works only with them and a few others, but everyone else seems to still be selling cheaper Chinese SARMs (with more variable quality unless you are buying from a company with rigorous testing standards).
Proven Peptides SARMs are made in the USA in high-quality lab premises. Better than that, they are also independently lab tested before they are sold. Those batch test reports show the exact purity is always published on the product pages on the website.
So all that put together gives you complete peace of mind on the purchase you’re making. Great quality SARMs, made in the USA, tested for purity and then sold at good prices.
Let’s take a quick look at pricing so you can see what I mean. We will stick with the example of Ostarine so you can get a comparison with the other two places I’m telling you where to buy SARMs from in this guide.
A 30 mL dropper bottle, dosed at 25 mg/mL, retails at $49.99. So as you can see, that’s not much more expensive than Science.bio for American-made SARMs, rather than Chinese.
Plus, I do want to talk about “proven points”. It’s a loyalty scheme that offers a significant discount on repeat orders. You basically get a point per dollar you spend. 10 points are then worth a dollar. Over several orders that will add up to quite a significant discount off a future order, and definitely something I think is a great reward for loyalty.
All of these three are what I found to be the best and most reliable companies. Great purity, good prices, rapid delivery, moneyback guarantees, and those all-important lab test reports verifying the purity you are getting. So as you can see, there really is a lot of choices even between these three companies, depending on what your own buying decision will be based around.
