Tomorrow I’m starting an 8 week cycle. I’ll be using Cardarine, SR9009 and Yohimbine, with a low dose of Ostarine to go along with them, kind of like a leafy garnish on top of a fine pasta dish. I’ve also got some Clen which I might take for a couple of weeks in the middle of the cycle, I’ll see how I feel.

Along with this I’ll be walking about 10-20km a day and doing weights 2 maybe 3 times a week with some HIIT in there. It’ll be a challenge since we’re in lockdown. I’ll be on the keto diet keeping my carbs as low as possible and will also be doing OMAD. And of course I will be in a calorie deficit, even doing 2 and 3 day fasts.

All of this is to burn 5-10 kilos of stubborn belly fat that is extremely hard to get rid of. I was 82 kilos, I got myself down to 64.9 through clean diet and exercise but still had a visible belly, then I relapsed (starting eating maccas, kfc and pizza again), and gained 5 kilos so now I’m at 70, but back to eating clean. I always thought when I reached 65 that would be job done.

This last bit of belly fat really is tough to get through. It’s definitely not a calorie game when it comes to this stuff. I’m guessing I’ll need to get to at least 60 kilos to completely get rid of this thing. This is why I’ve decided to leverage pharmacology to try and get rid of it once and for all.

Any thoughts or advice? Have you done a cut like this before? What do people think of Yohimbine? Do you have any questions for me? I might post updates if this gets replies.




TLDR: I’m starting an 8 week cycle with Cardarine, SR9009, Yohimbine, Clen and a low dose of Ostarine sprinkled on top.

Why do u say that?

Fasting and ketogenic diets will bind up a lot of your androgens in SHBG meaning there’s not an optimal amount freely circulating in your system for the SARMS to have the desired effect.

There’s a lot of intermittent fasting, keto and carnivore guys who have posted their blood work on youtube. Many of them have very high SHBG and total test with very low free test.

There's not a lot of scientific literature on the subject of IF and SHBG (did find this study which shows "Testosterone and insulin-like growth factor 1 decreased significantly in fasting group, with no changes in normal diet group" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5064803/) but anecdotally there's heaps of guys posting their bloodwork on reddit who are keto and/or fasting with sky high SHBG and low free T

here's an example

there's more with this google search if you're interested

site:reddit.com fasting "SHBG"

If I was you I’d move to a more conventional eating pattern with at least 3 meals per day, low in sugar but high in starchy carbs and high in protein.

Interesting stuff, however the only SARM that im taking is a low dose of Ostarine, everything else that im taking arnt technically sarms.

What do you think?

SR9009 and Caradine are both SARMs aren’t they?

Regardless I would stick to a traditional bodybuilding diet and meal timing.

Ok guys, time for an update.

I took your advice and got rid of the T3 and wont be doing clen. I am 4 days into it and I gotta say I’m feeling pretty energised. I haven’t looked at the scales yet so I can’t see if im losing weight just yet. Ive been eating well under 2000 calories a day.

I’m dosing Cardarine at 20mg a day, 10mg a day Ostarine, 24mg of SR9009, 6mg 4 times a day, and 10mg of Yohimbine on maybe 50% of days.

I do have another question. I’m taking sublingual sarms, and was wondering how long should I hold it under my tongue for? If i go over 2 minutes it starts to damage your membranes, would 30 seconds be enough for maximum absorption?

30 secs should be sufficient .

Also 4 days isn’t long enough to really gauge effectiveness unless you use DNP which I would never recommend.

Also eating well under 2000 cals is ridiculous.

A 60kg girl would eat that and loose weight.

So before you start taking “MOnSTER STACKS” you need to learn how to eat.
