I’ve been getting a ton of questions about how to do a SARMs stack lately, so I figured I’d put all of my experience and knowledge into an article.
People keep asking me… What’s a good SARMs cycle? What’s the best stack for bulking? What about for cutting? Well, I’ve got your answers here.
In this article, I’ll be showing pictures of my SARMs stack results, and explaining what the best stacks are for bulking & cutting.
It’s all from experience, too. This isn’t some bullshit armchair bro-science. I’ve actually tested this shit myself. So, with that in mind, let’s get to it.
What is a SARMs Stack?
My most recent SARMs stack
Put simply, a SARMs stack is when you take multiple SARMs at once, to achieve even better results than you could get from just one.
If you haven’t read my
ultimate guide to SARMs be sure to check that article out before we continue, because it has extremely valuable information.
Anyways, just taking one SARM can yield incredible muscle gains and fat loss. If you stack multiple SARMs however, your results will be insane.
Different SARMs have slightly different effects on the body, so when you stack them, you can gain the benefits of each SARM you take.
If you’re a beginner, it’s probably best to start with a cycle of a very well-tested and well-research SARM, like
Ostarine (MK-2866) for example.
If you’re more advanced with SARMs however (such as I am), then definitely consider going on some of the stronger stacks.
Best Stack For Beginners
My very first SARMs cycle was a combination of Ostarine, Ligandrol, and Cardarine. I documented my
full SARMs before and after results here as well, if you want to read the full report.
The image above is from a 90 day SARMs stack:
Ostarine (25 mg per day) Ligandrol (10 mg per day) Cardarine (10 mg per day)
I did this stack for 90 days (12 weeks) and then followed it up with a post cycle therapy, which I discuss in my
ultimate guide to SARMs PCT.
The reason I recommend this stack for beginners, is because all three of these SARMs are very well tested and have shown to be very safe.
My SARMs Stack Results
All in all, I ended up gaining 18 pounds of muscle and losing 7 pounds of body fat in just 3 months from this SARMs cycle, which is pretty impressive.
I noticed an increase in strength within just a few days, and the increase became very noticeable within 1-2 weeks of use.
Overall, this is a great SARMs stack for beginners, because it isn’t as strong as something like RAD 140, and won’t cause any serious side effects.
Bulking Stack Guide
The results above were from a SARMs bulking stack that I did, comprised of Testolone (RAD 140) and Ostarine (MK-2866) for just 4 weeks.
Pretty damn impressive, isn’t it? I was shocked at the results myself, especially because I not only gained muscle mass, but lost fat, too.
The images above were from a 30 day (4 weeks) SARMs stack:
RAD 140 (20 mg per day) Ostarine (25 mg per day)
I wrote a
full review of my experience with Rat’s Army and their SARMs, where I detail my cycle results. Definitely check that article out.
That being said, let me give you a quick summary of what happened when I was on a 4 week cycle of this bulking/recomposition SARM stack.
Bulking Stack Results
In just 4 weeks, I managed to completely transform my body. I packed on around 10 pounds of muscle, and lost 4 pounds of fat.
That’s pretty crazy for just 4 weeks—I mean, imagine what could happen if you did a full stack of that shit for 8 weeks or even 12 whole weeks.
If you want to take things even further, you can buy the
Rat’s Army Mass Stack, which has YK 11, RAD 140, and MK 677 in it (at a discount).
This is probably the strongest bulking SARMs stack in existence, because of the way that all these SARMs work synergistically when stacked together.
Cutting Stack Guide
Pictures from my RAD 140 cycle
Personally as a hardgainer, I’ve never really had a hard time losing body fat—in fact, I’ve always found it easy as hell to do so.
That being said, I think the best SARMs stack for cutting would be:
Ostarine (MK 2866) Cardarine (GW 501516) Andarine (S4)
You could also add some RAD 140 in the mix, although it isn’t technically used for cutting most of the time (it’s just really strong in general).
Ostarine, Cardarine, and Andarine are probably going to be your best bet for a cutting stack, because they’re all known to shred fat very well.
Cutting Stack Results
Even when I wasn’t doing a cutting stack, I was still able to shred pounds of fat off from my
RAD 140 cycle (read this guide for more info).
I shred off 12 pounds of fat in 8 weeks, so if you do a full cutting SARMs stack, you can probably shred off twice as much from a 8-12 week cycle.
Again, I recommend you go with the
Fat Loss Stack from Rat’s Army, because it’s already pre-dosed and measured out for you.
Just take one full dropper per day of each SARM, and that’s your cycle right there. No injections, no weird pills or potions, just one full dropper daily.
How to Build Your Own
While I don’t recommend you build your own SARMs stack unless you’re experienced with taking SARMs, you can still do it if you want.
All you need to understand is what each SARM does, and the general dosages for each SARM—then you can make your own stack!
So, with that in mind, let me give you a quick rundown of each SARM, the dosages for each one, and what their overall benefits are. Let’s go.
Different SARMs & Their Effects
In general, every SARM will help with both gaining muscle and losing fat, but depending on the SARM, they have a slightly different effect.
Some SARMs really excel at building muscle, while others will work best for shredding body fat. Some require a PCT, and some pseudo-SARMs won’t.
Do you see the point? There’s no “best SARM” despite what the marketers tell you—the best cycle and stack will vary depending on your goals.
SARMs that focus on muscle building are:
Myostine (YK 11) Testolone (RAD 140) Ibutamoren (MK 677)
SARMs that focus on fat loss are:
Cardarine (GW 501516) Stenabolic (SR 9009) Andarine (S4)
SARMs that focus on both are:
Ostarine (MK 2866) Ligandrol (LGD 4033)
Like I said, every single SARM will help with muscle gain and fat loss, but they tend to have slightly different focuses depending on the SARM.
Do you see how easy it would be to make your own stack now? Just choose what you want to focus on, and add SARMs from that category.
Different SARMs & Their Dosages
Each SARM is going to have a minimum effective dosage and a maximum safe dosage. Definitely don’t go over the maximum safe dosage!
Here are the dosages shown to work in actual clinical studies, broken down and separated by category (muscle gain, fat loss, & both).
Bulking SARMs Dosages
Myostine, or YK 11, is typically taken in dosages from 5 mg to 15 mg per day, although some users have reported taking as much as 30 mg per day.
Testolone, or RAD 140, is most often taken in 15 mg per day increments. That being said, I’ve personally taken 30 mg per day, and ended up just fine.
Ibutamoren, or MK-677, is usually taken in dosages ranging from 20 mg to 25 mg per day, although studies have shown up to 50 milligrams is safe.
Cutting SARMs Dosages
Cardarine is usually taken in dosages between 5 mg and 10 mg, but dosages as high as 20 milligrams daily have been shown to be safe in studies.
Stenabolic, or SR 9009, is usually taken in dosages ranging from 10 mg to 20 mg per day, although dosages as high as 30 mg have shown to be safe.
Andarine, otherwise known as S4, is usually taken in dosages ranging from 25mg to 50mg, and anything more than this is not recommended.
Versatile SARMs Dosages
Ostarine, otherwise known as MK 2866, is usually taken in dosages from 25 mg to 50 mg, and anything more than this is not recommended.
Ligandrol, otherwise known as LGD 4033, is usually taken in dosages ranging from 10 mg to 20 mg. More than this is not recommended.
The Bottom Line
All in all, stacking SARMs is a great way to achieve some incredible results, especially if you want to build muscle and lose fat rapidly.
If you want to build your own SARMs stack you can absolutely do so, but I’d just recommend going with the pre-made stacks from Rat’s Army.
Like I said, I’ve personally tried their SARMs before and it’s 100% legit, so I have no quandaries recommending them to you guys (my audience).
You can also use the code “MD20” to get 20% off any SARMs stack you choose, in addition to their already very competitive prices.
Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed the article. Definitely let me know if you have any questions in the comments section down below, and I’ll see you next time!
❓ What Are The Best SARMs to Stack?
RAD 140, Ligandrol, YK-11, and MK-677 are great SARMs to stack for bulking, particularly if you're trying to gain strength, as well. Some SARMs such as Cardarine and SR9009 are best for cutting, and other SARMs such as Ostarine and S4 are versatile, and can be used to either burn fat or build muscle.
❓ Which SARM is the Strongest?
RAD 140, otherwise known as Testolone, is commonly known as being the strongest SARM on the market. It has an anabolic ratio of 90:1, meaning that it's 90% as effective at building muscle as pure testosterone, but only has 1% of the androgenic side effects.
❓ Can You Stack SARMs Together?
Yes, SARMs work very well when taken together, but you have to know what you're doing. Each SARM has a slightly different effect on the body, so depending on your goal, whether it's bulking, cutting, or doing a recomposition, the best SARM stack for you will vary.
❓ How to Stack SARMs?
The best way to stack SARMs is by trying one of the pre-defined stacks I created in this article. Simply purchase the recommended SARMs online, and take them at the same time each day, for either an 8-week or a 12-week cycle, followed by a PCT.
❓ What is the Best SARMs Stack?
For bulking, the best SARM stack would be Ligandrol, YK-11, and MK-677. The best SARMs cutting stack would be RAD 140, Ostarine, and Cardarine, for lean gains and fat shredding. The best recomposition stack would include RAD 140 and potentially S4, as well.
