Anabolicum – LGD PT

Images are for illustrative purposes only


Anabolicum/Ligandrol, or its research name of LGD-4033, is a popular SARM (selective androgen receptor modulator) which like most SARMs has been to specifically target androgen receptors in the muscles and bones.

This means it should have little to no impact on any other areas of the body, unlike steroids which directly alter the hormones and cause some drastic side effects. LGD is valued not only for the results it can deliver, but in the way it can do so with often no side effects at all or only very mild ones in some users.

Human clinical trials have shown clearly that this SARM can increase muscle mass without the gaining of fat. This makes Anabolicum (LGD) one of the few SARMs that have scientific proof through human studies of its effectiveness for bodybuilders and performance athletes, making this a SARM that is very appealing to a range of users with different goals from bulking and cutting, to improving recovery and body composition

Anabolicum (LGD) is an oral SARM that is still listed as an investigational drug as its possible benefits and medical applications are still being researched. It is intended to possibly treat conditions like osteoporosis and muscle wasting and this gives us some insight into what this SARM might be able to do.

We know that LGD has multiple benefits for athletes: it can help build muscle and repair muscle. This is a parallel benefit to that experienced with anabolic steroids, but LGD-4033, while not as powerful as the most potent steroids, can deliver benefits with a much-reduced side effect profile compared with steroids.

This SARM has shown to have high levels of androgenic activity, resulting in high suppression of testosterone in trials as well as impacts on good cholesterol (HDL) levels at a dosage of just 1mg daily.

Like all SARMs, LGD is banned in professional sports and listed as a prohibited substance. It has been found included as an ingredient, illegally, in some performance supplements and some elite athletes have been caught unaware that they’ve taken LGD and subsequently been caught through drug testing.

Dosage Instructions

0.5mg to 5mg / Day


As noted, at a dose of just 1mg daily the trial participants saw a significant suppression of testosterone levels while using the compound so if this is a concern for you, dosage must be started at a low level to gauge the effects.

The good news is that only very low doses of this SARM are needed to get good results, as we’ve seen in clinical trial results, and this will help keep side effects at bay.

While some people might increase dosage right up to 15mg or 20mg daily or more, keep testosterone suppression in mind and be prepared to combat it after your cycle. When it comes to females using LGD, 5mg per day is the maximum recommended dosage.

With a half-life of 24 hours, you can get by with a once daily dosing of this compound, but you can also split it if you experience effects like headache or fatigue at higher dosages.

An 8-week cycle can be expected to deliver excellent results, but it’s possible to use this SARM for 12 weeks to really allow the effects to kick in over a longer period. Post cycle therapy to speed up the restoration of hormone production should run for at least 4 weeks.

LGD’s is effective at low doses so there’s no need to ramp up your dose to amplify the effects; this has no benefit and can raise the risk of more serious side effects and a greater suppression of testosterone. In fact, as little as 1mg daily can give most people some very noticeable results.

If you’re a new user, then evaluating LGD’s effects at just 1mg a day will provide a good introduction to this SARM. More advanced users with goals ranging from cutting, bulking or performance benefits will increase the dose from between 5mg daily up to 10mg. The most advanced performance athletes have reported taking up to 20mg daily, but this is considered excessive for most people.

Female users can get by with a lower dose than males but will still see exceptional results.

LGD is taken orally, and it’s recommended to take the day’s dose in a single administration, as there is no need to split it due to the half-life of up to 36 hours – a single daily dose is more than often enough to keep your blood levels of LGD-4033 at the optimal level.

Most users found LGD to be safe and well tolerated across the dosage range given in the study which ran for 3 weeks. Even short-term doses above 20mg per day were tested and it was found to have no noticeably negative impacts on users; however, it is not recommended to use such a high dosage for the length of time that most LGD users will be running a cycle.



Using this SARM alone will provide excellent muscle gains, but also performance enhancements. So, this can either be a bulking cycle or one to boost sporting performance specifically in areas of strength and endurance.


A 1mg daily dose will deliver excellent result to most people, and some won’t feel the need to exceed this low dose for the duration of a cycle. Many users will choose to increase the dose to 5mg for the whole cycle, or even up to 10mg.

The cycle duration for LGD only is ideally capped at 8 weeks which provides plenty of time to see the positive effects while reducing any potential health risks and most of all, minimizing the level of testosterone suppression in male users.

LGD-4033 bulking cycle

LGD on its own is excellent for bulking and many users will find that this SARM alone can take care of their bulking needs. Only those seeking more extreme results are going to want to stack it with something else in a bulking cycle. All gains made with LGD come with no bloating, so it’s critical to stack it with another compound that also causes no water retention.


A common bulking stack is LGD and RAD-140 (Testolone). This compound can also be dosed once daily and is very effective at helping build mass at only 10mg per day. The combination of Testolone and LGD can supercharge gains 20lbs and above range throughout a short cycle of 8 weeks.

LGD-4033 cutting cycle

Cardarine is one of several other SARMs that will make a powerful combination with LGD for cutting and fat loss. Cardarine will significantly enhance stamina and endurance, compounding on the effects of LGD and making it possible to really increase your cardiovascular output – this can only result in faster loss of fat.


There’s no water retention with either compound and retaining lean muscle tissue will be made easier as both compounds are excellent at helping preserve muscle while losing fat and ensuring the body does not fall into a state of catabolism where muscle is being used as energy.

LGD-4033 Stacks

LGD stacks well with some other SARMs and similar compounds, and the one (or more) that you choose to combine it will depend on your goals and what affects the other compound has that can amplify or work alongside those of LGD. Three commonly used compounds with LGD include Ostarine, Cardarine and Testolone.


A stack with Testolone and Ostarine will provide considerable benefits for those wanting mass gains as a priority, while Cardarine is going to enhance your endurance and fat loss when combined with LGD. Testosterone suppression and potential combined side effects of all compounds should always be evaluated before deciding on a stack.



As one of the few SARMs with clinical studies that prove LGD-4033 results in suppressed testosterone, we know that PCT for male users is critical once you’ve finished your cycle.


Even a low dosage of 1mg daily and short cycles of only 3 weeks can cause testosterone production to slow down or even shut down, and some guys will find it to be a mild inconvenience at that point but since many people will be using LGD for twice that length of time or even longer, more severe suppression is more than possible.

Clomid and Nolvadex are the standard options for PCT, but your decision will depend on the level of suppression; anyone doing a cycle longer than 8 weeks and a dosage of more than 5mg daily is more likely to experience suppressive testosterone function.
