RPM= Unexpected results
In going on week 3 of RPM when i ordered it i had no clue what a SARM was. I seriously thought i was purchasing JUST a fat burner.... wow was i wrong ! I am noticing i am leaning out while weighing more. My workouts are insane and my cardio is even better. My question is there any negative side effects short term or long term with SARMs? I am loving this right now but am always alittle learyfor my health when something works this good, this fast. :bb3:

Taken from the RPM FAQs:
RPM™ from Applied Nutriceuticals™
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will it take to feel the positive benefits of RPM?
A: You will feel the many of the benefits of RPM within 1 hour of taking the first dose. Users frequently report new personal records (PRs) on all major exercises within the first week of starting RPM. Users of RPM report intense focus, heightened aggression towards training and an overall “hardening” effect, along with strong vasodilation and intense pumps. The “focus-enhancement” properties of RPM also manifest themselves on the first dose, while the full effects of the testosterone- boosting and the anti-estrogenic actions of RPM become evident after 2-3 doses. This accomplishes one of our primary product development goals; to develop a completely new product that provides immediate results while continually working better over time.
Q: What are the ingredients of RPM?
A: P-SARM Synthase AI
Icariin 50% Extract (research-grade)
Grape Seed Extract (specially extracted fir 98% Oligometric Proanthocyanidins)
Naringin (98% Citrus Flavanoids extracted for Naringenin)
Methyl AMP Complex
Methyl Xanthine Anhydrous Caffeine
Q: How is RPM different from other testosterone boosters and NO-type products?
A: RPM resides in a completely new product category of its own: It is an A-CESE (Anabolic-Cognitive Energy System Enhancer) with P-SARM (Phytochemical Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) characteristics. This means that the product that exhibits testosterone-mimetic, anti-catabolic, and aromatase-inhibiting properties, while at the same time delivers optimal mind/muscle connection & contraction. This is accomplished through its unique peripheral vasostimulatory perfusion and increased cognitive psycho-motor control.
RPM combines P-SARM Synthase AI- a unique blend of research-grade icariin (high-quality research grade icariin, 50% extract), L-Arginine, and the flavanoid aromatase inhibitors naringin (specially standardized for naringenin), and grape seed extract (specially standardized for oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), along with Methyl-AMP Complex, a powerful blend of methyl-xanthine caffeine and Chocamine™, standardized in a specific ratio to ensure for maximum vasodilatory properties and mind/muscle psycho-motor connection.
Q: Does RPM require post cycle therapy? (special thanks to TheMyth on this one!!!!)
A: RPM does NOT require post cycle therapy b/c it works through secondary characteristics (AI effect, effects on SHBG, effects on T:E and T:C ratio)- this maximizes free endogenous T, while minimizing estrogen and cortisol- HPTA shutdown only occurs when exogenous testosterone derivatives are introduced.
Q: When should I take RPM?
A: Take approximately one hour before your workout. If you train in the evening, do not take a full dose within 6 or 7 hours of bedtime. If you do train in the evening, reduce you recommended dosage by 50%.
Q: Has there been any scientific research on the product constituents of RPM?
A: Absolutely. The components in RPM all have numerous medical research studies proving their efficacy, with documented properties including testosterone enhancement, anti-catabolism, and a PDE5 inhibition with mechanisms of action similar to Viagra. All the product constituents of both P-SARM Synthase AI and the Methyl-AMP Complex have been studied extensively, and only the doses and standardizations used in research studies are used in the product. Full references are sited at the conclusion of RPM’s technical write-up, which can be found at www.appnut.com.
Q: I thought all research on SARMs (selective androgen receptor modulators) was limited to potential pharmaceutical drugs?
A: To be considered a SARM (selective androgen receptor modulator), a compound must have the following characteristics:
• Stimulate increases in strength and fat-free mass through testosterone mimetic properties,
• Support bone growth
• Maintain and / or restore sexual function and virility
• Orally bioavaliable
• Does not effect blood pressure or blood lipids.
RPM fits every one of these criteria for a SARM. The only exception is that it is a compilation of phytochemical extracts rather than a pharmaceutical-grade preparation - hence the classification of Phytochemical SARM (P-SARM). RPM is very well researched and all components have undergone extensive testing on humans and animals; as opposed to the alternative - which is an unproven pharmaceutical drug that so far has only been tested on animals.
Q: Is it safe to use RPM for long periods of time, or should I cycle it?
A: All research studies along with our own testing have indicated that it can be used continuously without any negative side effects- some members of the AN team have used various components of RPM for a year straight, with no issues. You will never want to train without it again!
Q: What supplements should I take along with RPM, and are there any supplements I should avoid?
A: We recommend whey protein supplementation, with a goal of attaining 1-1.5 grams of protein per day per lb. of bodyweight. Additionally we encourage the use of an EFA supplement with a proper ratio of omega 3/6/9, and a good multivitamin / multimineral. IGF-2 and NeoVar stack extremely well with this compound as well! Please drink at least 70 oz. of water a day while taking RPM as well.
Please avoid any other stimulant or thermogenic while taking RPM- you simply will not need them! RPM is a strong thermogenic, on par with ephedra products- try it and see for yourself! Plus, now you can save money since you won’t need a separate stimulant-based fat-burning product!
Q: Who can benefit from RPM?
A: Anyone seeking to DRIVE their workouts to an explosive, vein-popping new level. The product is also a great contest-prep item, giving the user tighter skin, less water retention, harder muscle contractions, and bulging pumps, even on limited carbs!! Also, anyone looking to gain a competitive edge in athletics can benefit significantly from using RPM, from both the strength increases and the heightened concentration and focus; plus it is NCAA, NPC, IFBB, NFL, NBA, MLB and IOC compliant!
Q: Who should not take RPM?
A: Anyone sensitive to stimulants, under the age of 18, those who take MAOI’s or are on any other type of prescription medications, and if you are pregnant or nursing. Always check with your doctor before beginning any supplementation regimen.

Please make note that RPM is a Phytochemical SARM (as opposed to the theoretical pharmaceutical drug SARMs). We've had quite a few people, affiliated and not, using RPM for months straight with no sides and no decreases in benefit.
You my friend, are the lucky winner!! Either you have nothing to do.... or you are highly dedicated to AppNut! AN loves you. First person to PM me with the phrase "I found the damn thing"... wins an IGF-2, Neovar, RPM stack!!!!!!

New to RPm and taking NeoVar As well...
Should I be taking RPM on off days as well??
Or can I workout everyday if I am doing resistance training with bodyweight
and full body workouts, with of course interval cardio training???
And since I am taking RPM and NeoVar Recomped am I healing quick enough
to workout everyday with bodyweight exercises if it just involves push ups, squats, chin ups, muscle ups basically calisthenics with, isometrics, and plyometric exercises??? Since I just started taking both RPM and NeoVar
any information on cutting up and gaining lean muscle would be benificial and thank you in advance!!

And yes, it works from the FIRST dose!
Resistance Training Days
Dose - 2-3 caps 60-80 minutes pre-resistance training (I would start with 2 caps to assess tolerance, and then go to 3 caps if ok)
Non-Resistance Training Days
Dose - 1-2 caps once daily (most often dosed first thing in the morning, but whenever you like, really; and this is OPTIONAL).
I wouldn't recommend training EVERY day, regardless of what TYPE of trainng you are doing (and defnitely no more than 4-5 times a week with resistance training); your body NEEDS RECOVERY time; otherwise it will NOT get results!
If you're wanting to recomp/cut, then I suggest that you dose NeoVar recomped as follows:
Dose 1 - 3 caps 30-40 min pre-resistance training
Dose 2 - 3 caps immediate post-resistance (or cardio, if no resistance training and cardio instead) training AND THEN EAT A MEAL CONTAINING ~50g CARBOHYDRATES 15-20 MINUTES AFTERWARDS
Dose 3 - 3 caps 15-20 minutes pre-meal with at least 50g carbohydrates (either earlier or later in the day)
Dose 4 - 3 caps last thing at night (please note that Dose 4 is OPTIONAL, and really should only be done on days when you ahve very high calories/carbohydrates)
There are quite a few threads that contain information on diet (and this is the KEY to successful recomping) for cutting/recomping. Read post #4 at New to forum, need advice....trying to lose weight... (the same applied for males as well as females). If you want to recomp then I suggest that you follow a calorie cycling method: 2-4 days lower than or at maintenance calories and then 1-2 days at higher than maintenance calories.
