What is Testolone (RAD-140)?
Testolone, commonly known as RAD-140, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) and is one of the most popular SARMs available. It is as close to a steroid as you can get, without actually being a steroid, making it well-suited for users who are cautious of anabolic use, but are worried about potential side effects. This class of drugs comes with some of the desirable properties of anabolic steroids, like promoting muscle growth through anabolic activity, but with a much reduced or even eliminated risk of androgenic side effects. The results obtained by users is nothing short of impressive.
RAD-140 is highly selective in which androgen receptors are targeted, specific receptors in muscle and bone, which is what makes it a valuable compound to bodybuilders and athletes. Most users find the main benefit of Testolone to be its ability to increase muscle mass and strength. Its effects are most similar to that of Testosterone.
Large pharmaceutical companies have developed RAD-140 as a progressive treatment for muscle wasting and breast cancer. It is still a relatively new SARM and is in the early stages of research and has not yet been approved for treating specific conditions, however, it has the potential ability to be used as a hormone replacement therapy without increasing prostate size.
Some of the benefits of RAD-140 Include:
- Anti-catabolic and prevents muscle and tissue wasting
- Improved mass gains and increased muscle size
- Increased strength and stamina
- Increased recovery time
- Increased fat loss/promotes lipolysis
What is the recommended dosage?
The most common dosage of Testolone (RAD-140) for most users is 10-30mg/day. It has a relatively long half-life of around 20 hours, meaning levels will remain stable throughout the day. It can be taken once a day and does not need to be split into multiple doses.
What Does RAD-140 Stack Well With?
Testolone is an extremely versatile drug that can be combined with many other SARMs and anabolic steroids; This includes any combination of injectable/oral compounds. It is powerful enough to be used on its own but is more commonly used in bulking cycles due to its ability to promote lean muscle gains. If you want to use it in a cutting cycle, it is best to stack it with a compound that promotes more fat loss, such as Cardarine.
It is recommended to use a PCT such as Nolvadex or Clomid after the completion of a RAD-140 cycle.
