Due to the possible cholesterol issues, moderate anabolic steroid cycles may be best served with SERM’s in order to protect against estrogenic related side effects. SERM’s will not negatively affect cholesterol; in fact, SERM’s like Nolvadex have been shown to promote healthy cholesterol levels due to their ability to act as estrogen in the liver. However, for many a SERM won’t be enough and AI’s will be necessary. If an AI is necessary, the individual should limit his use and only use as much as is actually needed. Some have suggested that a 10mg per day dosing of Nolvadex along with your Arimidex use may actually aid in cholesterol management.
Leigh, I went back and read your realistic goal setting posts- I found a place that suggests how fast one can gain muscle, but not how fast one could expect to lose fat. Is this somewhere, and if not could you give some recommendations on timeframe when setting fat loss goals, either by pounds or percentages? I would also like to know possible side effects on the body when comparing a slow and steady or rapid fat loss route. Thanks for all of your great info! You have finally brought me around to the reality of energy balance and I’
ready to get something done! Thanks.
RAD 140 : Testolone studies are still being produced, but it has been known to have equal potency and effectiveness to that of LGD4033. Dosages ranged between 20mg to 30 mg per 24-36 hours for maximum skeletal muscle hypertrophy. Safe durations for research have been tolerated for up to 12 weeks, however, developing trials may indicate tolerance for up to 24 weeks. It is important to note that RAD140 systematically regulates the neuroexcitatory amino acid Kainate which activates glutamate receptors in the brain. Kainate acid’s role in neuronal cell death (specifically in the hippocampus) has been shown to be a primary contributor to Alzheimer’s disease. RAD140 has demonstrated positive results in the prevention of Kainate acid production and medical based research published by The Endocrine Society suggests RAD140 can improve brain health through neuroprotective properties in as little as 13 days (Jayaraman, 2014). This characteristic of nonsteroidal SARMs is not added in the General Benefits section of this article because it is exclusive only to RAD140.
