Ostarine AKA MK-2688 is a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator or (SARM). This is a special type of molecule which binds to the skeletal muscle and bone androgen receptors and not to any other androgen receptors.
Side Effect Free Muscle Growth
By only binding to muscle and bone and not sebaceous glands or hair follicles, by not being converted to DHT or estrogen this is the most powerful and efficient way of building side effect free muscle. It is purely anabolic and completely side effect free. The only risk is that there may be some mild natural test shut down with cycles over 4 weeks, however the time between cycles are only 4 weeks. In clinical trials 6 pounds of muscle were gained in 4-6 weeks of use with 25mg. While this may not seem impressive, this is rock hard muscle, not a mixture of water, fat and muscle like most wet bulking agents like D-Bol, M-drol, Anadrol, or testosterone.
It is oral with a high bioavailability without being methylated like all oral anabolic steroids. The only non methylated, oral, virtually side effect free prohormone is 1-Andro. This is the closest thing to a SARM of any prohormone or anabolic steroid. The advantage of 1-Andro over Ostarine is its not a black market item, 1-Andro is 100% legal! In fact 1-andro yields better results.

How is Ostarine Different from S-4?
S-4 was a previous black market SARM which showed little gains in muscle mass and had only a 3:1 anabolic to androgenic ratio. Additionally it had some vision disturbances associated with its use. Because of this and the doses from the black market manufacturer were 50 – 150 mg a day coupled with the no mass building effect it was believed that the S-4 on the black market was cut with Clomiphene. True Ostarine should not have these vision side effects.
Cutting and Recomp
Cutting on Ostarine is a great way to lose fat and not lose muscle. Only 12.5 mg is necessary while cutting to hang on to muscle.
More importantly recomp, staying the same scale weight while swapping your fat for new muscle, is the holy grail of bodybuilding. The other holy grail of bodybuilding is building muscle side effect free. With Ostarine and clean eating on a slight calorie surplus you can achieve these amazing effects!
So to avoid using the black market to get a product which only builds muscle with no other side effects except mild shutdown on cycles over 6 weeks, then use 1-Andro!
To legal convert fat into muscle or make any cycle more effective try 19-PH!
