Oral Kick-Start Explained
One of the most common practices on a steroid cycle is to use an oral kick-start, especially when a longer estered form of testosterone is being used. The general reasoning behind a kick-start is to accelerate the gains of a cycle via an oral jump start. When a longer estered testosterone is being used, it takes much longer to “feel” them and there is generally a 2-4 week period where one may not feel as though they are even on a cycle. This is where the kick-start comes into play. Many people need that jump start to stay motivated and to help get that extra push in the gym.
The problem with kick-starting is that oral steroids are highly methylated and come with their fair share of side effects. In fact, methylated orals can cause damage to your liver, blood pressure, cholesterol, lipids, kidneys, organs, etc. In addition, methylation can cause lethargy and become even more of a detriment, draining a user of their motivation and desire to do much of anything. There are excellent products that provide protection against this, N2Guard is a good example. However, when you are running a cycle, you want to not only get the highest amount of gains possible, but you also want to feel as though you are on top of the world. You SHOULD be feeling that way throughout. This is where LGD-4033 becomes such a wonderful option for a user.
What is LGD-4033?
LGD-4033 is rapidly increasing in popularity, as it has shown to be the strongest and most anabolic-like SARM in existence up to this point. SARMS are quite different from steroids in terms of their makeup, lack of side effects and recovery time. SARMS can be run much longer than oral steroids. They are non-methylated and don't pressure the liver. Although the results are not as drastic as some steroids, they are much cleaner, more keepable and have several properties that are extremely desirable that steroids may not be able to provide.
LGD can be used for bulking, recomposition and cutting. It possesses the ability to add size while still reducing body fat, akin to primobolan. Another excellent characteristic it possesses is that it can be ran up to 12 weeks, whereas most orals can only be used for 4-6 week time periods. LGD produces steady gains throughout the entire 12 weeks, and it provides a user with an overall sense of well being where you feel excellent throughout the entire time of use. It has anabolic properties without the anabolic side effects. LGD-4033 also takes effect very quickly and will generally start to show results in the first week of use. In addition, it has shown to increase endurance, which will allow for more output during training, resulting in more gains being made. All these benefits make LGD ideal for any user because it provides an excellent kick-start and has an affinity to produce quality gains that show to be very clean but still substantial.
LGD can cause slight suppression, but nothing comparable to the suppression shown from steroid use and it can be mitigated with the use of HGGenerate on cycle. I find LGD suppression to be mild at best and very easy to recover from.
LGD-4033 should be dosed at 10 mg day, taken orally, once a day in the morning. LGD should be ran 8-12 weeks, with 12 weeks being ideal. A perfect combination for fat loss is LGD-4033 with Andarine (S-4).
