- 1/3 as androgenic as testosterone in muscle tissue.
- Anabolic at doses above 50mg
- Great for strength
- Great for muscle hardness
- Great for enhanced vascularity
- Great for endurance (aerobic or anaerobic)
- Accelerated fat loss above 50mg
- Joint healing effects
- Half life of 4 hours
A dosing protocol of 50-75mg for 4-8 weeks will give good recomp effects
Diet must also be optimized to where calories are just above maintenance with at least 30% coming from lean sources of protein to get the best recomp effect.
Of course, the recomp effects could be even greater if stacked or combined with a more anabolic SARM such as Ostarine.
Andarine can be used by itself, but it works even better when stacked because different drugs and compounds will work in synergy. There are a few ways to stack andarine, which I will illustrate below. All milligram (mg) examples are daily dosages, and you can run andarine for up to 12 weeks at a time.
1. Endurance: you can stack andarine at a low dose with cardarine (GW 501516) at 20mg per day for an increase in endurance.
2. Fat loss: the best shredder stack would be the combination of 20mg of cardarine with 50-75mg of andarine. This combination is well known as a potent ‘cutting’ stack.
3. Anabolic steroid stack: Stacking andarine as part of an anabolic steroid cycle is a good way to help increase strength and lean muscle mass without giving additional side effects to your cycle.
4. As a stand alone: Andarine used by itself at 50-75mg. It is, in my opinion, one of the best SARM’s for increasing strength quickly. You will be moving more weight within 1-2 weeks, and the side effects will be minimal.
5. SARMs triple stack: If you want to recomp, andarine stacks beautifully with cardarine and ostarine (MK 2866).
