    Cycle for Endurance Athletes?

    Curious what you all think would be the best cycle for an endurance athlete. Long course triathlons specifically. I would assume a lower dose of test and GW. But I'm in the very early stages of researching this and I'm sure many of you have the knowledge to share. Thanks.

    Have a look at winstrol and Nandrolone, I hear they could be pretty good for athletes in general. And GW is definitely a choice sarm for endurance from what ive read. I'm only new to this myself though, could be better options.

    The only steroid that would really benefit an athlete would be EQ because it increases red blood cell count and doesnt cause a whole lot of water retention. Unless you are on TRT and are using the test to keep your test levels in the normal range, I wouldn't add testosterone into your cycle lay out. It'll cause water retention and make you slower.

    I would forgo steroids altogether and use SARMS instead. Even steroids like EQ will probably hurt your performance, not improve it.

    Steroids like EQ also open up a whole bag of worms of other issues because they are suppressive of natural testosterone production. After using EQ, you would need to run a full PCT which gets very expensive.

    SARMS are going to be your best option as an athlete. Steroids will increase strength, but they will also cause a lot of water retention and negatively impact endurance. Your sports performance will actually probably be worse on the steroids then before you started the cycle. You might actually be slower when using the steroids because of the amount of body weight and water retention you gain on the cycle.

    SARMS on the other hand will directly increase endurance, fat loss and recovery. They aren't as strong as steroids in terms of strength and muscle gains but you get all the good, with none of the side effects. They don't cause water retention, are only minimally suppressive of natural testosterone production and aren't liver toxic. You will still increase strength on SARMS, just not to the same extent that you would on steroids.

    The SARMS triple stack (S4 + ostarine + cardarine) would be a great first cycle to run: http://www.evolutionary.org/the-SARM...stack-protocol

    Cardarine will directly increase fat loss and endurance
    Ostarine will increase recovery
    S4 will increase strength and lean mass
    You get the best of everything with the triple stack

    After the triple stack, run a mini PCT. 4 weeks of the following:
    HCGenerate ES at 5 capsules/day

    SARMS are minimally suppressive, there is no risk of aromatization (therefore no estrogen related side effects) and legal to use. You can get everything you need off sarms1.com, n2bm.com and ag-guys.com

    Thanks for the info Muskate. Would I see improvement just running GW? Would I need a mini pct after that also?

    Absolutely. You won't get anything in the way of strength or size from cardarine gw but you will get a significant increase in fat loss, endurance and recovery.

    The nicest thing about cardarine is that it isn't a hormone or a stimulant so no PCT is needed and it won't effect sleep or anything like that.

    Will it be beneficial to cycle off Cardarine? If so, how long would you run it and how long would you cycle off?

    It's non-hormonal so theoretically you do not need to come off it but I don't think using anything indefinitely is smart. I recommend 16 week cycles of cardarine with 4 week breaks in-between.
