    Ostarine cycle questions


    Hey guys been lurking around the site for a while and about to try my first cycle and needed suggestions. I'm gunna run the sarm ostarine at 25mg/day. Some say run a support along with it with a mini pct after, some say just run it alone with nothing else at all. Any suggestions? Thanks again.

    Currently running 25 mg of Osta once a day. There is no need for support while on this SARM. If you want to run it for 6-8weeks then a mini PCT would be advisable. A standard 6 week cycle is good to go without any need for post-cycle support.

    Time on + Time off = Time between cycles for AAS/PH.
    If you are running a longer SARM cycle, 8 weeks, do a 4 week PCT with Tribulus like supp. In this case wait 4-6 after your done with PCT to start round 2

    Thanks for the reply bro. I'm doing an 8week 25mg/day with a mini pct of erase and DAA. What have you noticed about it the most?

    I've ran a couple cycles of osta. 6-8 weeks of 25mgs should give some nice gains. For me, I usuall gain around 3-5 pounds and strength goes up. You also get a nice feeling while on it. I ran a simple Erase/DAA PCT and was fine.

    Ostarine is suppressive. I think you need more than just a natty test booster since I've heard of a few people being shutdown while running it at 25mg per day.

    Yea I'm definitely looking for the "happy feeling" and strength gains since I won't be eating a ton lol. And it is a tiny bit suppressive at 25mg so I decided to run ironmaglabs osta rx dosed at 20/day to avoid the possible suppression. I'll run erase and DAA starting at half way thru the cycle and continue for 3-4 weeks after

    I never felt suppressed and my libido stayed the same..that's just me though. I just ran the erase/daa just to be safe since its said to be suppresive

    I'd say at the minimum you'd want Erase/DAA for PCT even if you don't get shutdown. I'd personally even run a light clomid or nolva protocol. For PCT I'm always cautious and over prepared, better safe than sorry type mentality.

    I've done the cycle but never had any bloods done. I've seen logs with bloodwork posted on IML's and other forums.

    Halloween is the last day of a 6 week osta cycle. Results are solid to say the least. Any suggestions whether or not to jump into an Epistane cycle NOV 1.
    I would run it 3/3/3/3. So far there has been no shutdown or soreness of my boys. Past epi experiences were good and without unexpected side effects. Would a conservative person wait 4 - 6 weeks prior to starting a PH or would that be too rash?

    I decided to remain conservative and run a test booster. Ill wait 4 weeks, maybe 6 weeks to run another Ostarine cycle. This time I will stack it with S4. Is 4-6 weeks sufficient time in between cycles? Thanks.

    No need for pct at that dose.

    I've noticed one very odd thing about ostarine. I have chronic reflux which I control with diet and homeopathic remedies. For some reason whenever I take ostarine my acid reflux goes away completely. 100 percent just vanishes. I wonder why this is?

    I'm on 20mg per day in week 5 right now, and I can tell I'm shut down. Balls are shriveled up just like I'm on a ph cycle. Will need a SERM pct.

    I had bloodwork done during an Osta run. It showed no increase in my lipids or liver enzymes. I ran it at 25mg ED for 8 weeks.

    ThAt is not normal on ostarine. Even while undergoing some suppression on ostarine testicular atrophy is not a side effect

    DAA doesn't even work, have used it multiple times to see if it was the companies product, but nope tried usp, sns and a few others. Just run torem as pct that sh*t works best IMO

    Yeah but how can you trust a) its actually ostarine b) its not gonna kill you in 12 months. "Cause of death...hmm, unknown"

    The ostarine company behind it has gone into darkness, all other sarms turned organs into pure cancer, why risk it with zero liability and zero testing.


    Sure things don't need to be FDA approved, but taking a black market product with zero shelf time.

    Don't bother.

    I took it and feel an idiot for doing so after being scared away from real gear and phs... Im wishing id done that instead.

    Libidos not right, 8 months later, maybe it was liquid superdrol, maybe it was a sarm, who knows.

    Not sure where you have seen the info that showed the other SARMs turned organs to cancer, the only one I've seen research on that supported this cause was with GW-50156.

    Now it's important to note though that the dosage that they used in that study was an unimaginably high dosage, one at least 15-20x that of what a human would take on a regular cycle so if you're going to abuse something like that then of course you're going to cause yourself problems, no different then taking an astronomically high dose of any medicine or steroids.

    Ostarine hit the stage where it was almost ready for doctors to trial, however, they haven't progressed past this point despite it supposedly going to be the first sarm to go to market (like sitting on oil!) but its got no further attention. Says to me its all fake publicity

    I'm more inclined to believe that it works too well therefore the FDA won't approve it. At least in my experience with it I've put on a total of 14lbs of lean body mass (between 2 cycles)

    Actually they did do a trial run for cancer patients at 3mg a day but the trial failed to yield any results. Obviously we know 20mg+ yields good results but it is also suppressive with other potential side effects so I don't know if they'll continue with higher doses.

    GW 50156 is a peptide.

    The ostarine company behind it has gone into darkness, all other sarms turned organs into pure cancer, why risk it with zero liability and zero testing.


    Sure things don't need to be FDA approved, but taking a black market product with zero shelf time.

    Don't bother.

    I took it and feel an idiot for doing so after being scared away from real gear and phs... Im wishing id done that instead.

    Libidos not right, 8 months later, maybe it was liquid superdrol, maybe it was a sarm, who knows.
