Creating the perfect body can be a difficult task. Many bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts have resorted to using anabolic steroids such as testosterone in order to give them a quick advantage. One thing is true: testosterone works. It builds muscle fast and speeds recovery like nothing else. Unfortunately, testosterone also has a tone of side effects and needs to be injected frequently. What if there was a way to achieve the same effects of testosterone without the side effects? Now there is, and it’s available in a SARM called RAD140.
What is RAD140
Radius Health created RAD140 to treat patients with muscle wasting conditions. They quickly found that RAD140 drastically increased muscle mass in test subjects. Because RAD140 is a SARM and not a steroid, it doesn’t have nearly as many side effects. Also, it can be taken orally (unlike testosterone). Testolone has shown to have an anabolic to androgenic ratio of 90:1. This means that testolone is nearly as anabolic as testosterone but has hardly any of the androgenic side effects (such as hair loss).
Benefits of RAD140
As I previously mentioned, RAD140 is truly a miracle SARM. It can be used for a variety of different uses. Just like YK-11, it can be used for both cutting and bulking cycles. I personally like to include testolone in all of my cycles. You can also “recomp” with RAD140 The goal of a recomp is to lose fat while you build muscle.
RAD140 Builds Muscle
If you’re looking to build some serious muscle mass, RAD140 is a great choice. Initial studies showed that patients taking testolone saw a large increase of muscle mass that was not found with the placebo group. For more serious muscle growth, you can consider stacking it with LGD 4033.
RAD140 Burns Fat
Another positive effect of RAD140 is it’s ability to burn fat. It’s very similar to testosterone in this aspect. You can stack it with ostarine or cardarine to increase fat loss in your cycle, but RAD140 works great as a standalone compound as well.
If you’re into cardio, you’re going to love RAD140. One of my favorite benefits of RAD140 is how it increases cardiovascular performance and elevates oxygen levels in the body. You will be able to run longer, train harder, and recover faster. Obviously, these are all important aspects when training to create the perfect body.
Treatment for Breast Cancer
This is probably not applicable to the majority of my audience, but I figured I’d touch on it. Originally when Radius Health was running their trials, they discovered that testolone could be used to treat breast cancer in females. Obviously, I don’t recommend using this SARM if you have any sort of serious medical conditions. If you have any risk of cancer, go see a doctor immediately.
Side Effects of RAD140
RAD140 is pretty gentle on the body. It does not produce many side effects at all. Because it has such a low androgenic rating, users do not have to worry about prostate enlargement or hair loss. Also, it does not convert to estrogen. That means no risk of gynocomastia, either. With that being said, if you experience discomfort then stop taking testolone. As with all SARMs, I recommend keeping a very clean diet and increasing your water intake to help stay hydrated.
Best Dosage for RAD140
If you’re considering taking RAD140, you’ll want to know what the best dose to take is. I recommend taking a daily dose of between 20mg and 30mg. Like I always say, I recommend taking a smaller dose the first week to see how your body reacts. More is not always better when it comes to SARMs. Take 10mg a day for the first week, and if all is well, you can increase the dosage. Because testolone is mild on the body, you can run it up to 16 weeks if you’d like.
Half Life of RAD140
RAD140 has a half life of 16 hours. 16 hours is not considered short by any means, but users may opt to take half their dosage in the morning and the remaining half at night. Splitting doses like this will ensure that you’re reaching peak plasma levels.
