Cardarine is one of the more popular SARM-like substances that is especially appealing to those wanting a serious performance boost, with this compound showing great ability to enhance endurance.

This can open doors to results in multiple areas from fat burning and muscle growth by taking advantage of your ability to push harder, to improved athletic performance.

Cardarine also works extremely well when used to support anabolic steroids, making it an excellent addition to a steroid cycle thanks to the way Cardarine can reduce or even prevent some of most worrying side effects many steroids introduce concerning cardiovascular health.

Cardarine also goes by the name of Endurobol or by its original chemical research name of GW-501516. All these names refer to the exact same compound which has great benefits when used alone, but also some surprising and welcome benefits when combined with certain steroids.

The reason Cardarine became of interest to athletes is because of its effects on physical performance and its ability to offset cholesterol and blood pressure related changes that occur with the use of many steroids. Whether you’re a steroid user or not though, Cardarine offers multiple benefits, and this is what has made it such a popular compound, despite the fact it’s not always one of the easiest to find and purchase in pure form.

Cardarine is well known for its ability to promote improved endurance and more efficient fat burning, but early studies showed other benefits too like reducing cholesterol and preventing oxidative stress on the blood vessels, reducing inflammation on the kidneys and potentially other anti-inflammatory properties. The cessation of research on Cardarine unfortunately prevented any more specific findings in these areas but early results looked promising.

SARMs are known to be included in some authorized supplements as just one of many ingredients, and this can be a risk with Cardarine as well – but users wanting to get the best from this compound will always want to ensure you’re buying the pure form with the highest potency.

Cardarine is not a hormone and has no impact on hormones and this makes it equally useful for both females and males, with women able to utilize the compound at the exact same dosage as men.

Dosage Instructions

Although trials on humans were run for 12 weeks, most athletes using Cardarine will normally stick to an 8-week cycle at a dose of between 10mg and 15mg daily.

The optimal cycle length for you should be evaluated over time, and it’s possible that you might benefit by extending your cycle to 12 weeks, but this is recommended as the maximum, while the maximum dosage should not exceed 20mg for more advanced users.

The common dosage range is from 10mg at the low end up to 20mg per day. It is not recommended that anyone exceed 20mg daily of Cardarine and this is more than enough to provide significant benefits particularly when it comes to endurance.

New users will most likely want to start at the lower, yet still effective dose of 10mg daily. Many users will not wish to exceed 15mg daily and only the most advanced users will progress to 20mg per day.

Make no mistake: 10mg per day of Cardarine will provide an exceptional performance boost. Many users won’t even need to exceed that dose. New users will want to evaluate the effects of 10mg and if all is going well, the dosage can be increased to 15mg during the same cycle.

For those using Cardarine mainly to support the negative effects of some steroids like Trenbolone, a 10mg daily dose of Cardarine is usually sufficient to greatly assist in the management of cholesterol and cardiovascular function.

Both men and women can make use of the same doses of Cardarine because there are no virilization effects that female users will experience, unlike with steroids which bring about very serious masculine traits in females.

Likewise for men, the dose is not going to have any effect on your testosterone function because Cardarine has no impact at all on hormonal function. This makes it possible to select your Cardarine dose purely on the beneficial aspects of the compound, rather than having to balance outside effects as we need to do when using steroids.



The standard safe and effective cycle length for Cardarine is between 8 and 12 weeks. How long you use Cardarine will greatly depend on whether you’re relying on it as a primary compound, or if its being used alongside a steroid like Trenbolone as a supportive compound mostly to mitigate the cardiovascular related side effects.


The short half-life of Cardarine lasting anywhere from 12 to 24 hours makes it best to break your daily dose into a twice daily administration so you’re maintaining the most optimal blood levels. Many will choose to take Cardarine two to three hours before a workout to maximize its endurance related benefits.

Cardarine only cycle

Cardarine is still useful when used alone in a cycle and for beginners this can be the ideal option to get a good idea of what this compound does for you. Dosed anywhere from 10mg daily to 20mg daily you will see significant improvements to stamina and endurance, and more efficient fat loss.


The cycle should run for 8 to 10 weeks, and you can expect to see no side effects during this time. New users will benefit from starting the cycle at 10mg per day, dosed twice daily, and increasing this to 15mg two to three weeks into the cycle. If even greater effects are desired, a maximum of 20mg per day can be safely taken but there is no real benefit to increasing the dose past that level regardless of your experience level.

If you want more powerful benefits, then your next cycle should be a stack so you can complement Cardarine with other compounds.

Cardarine bulking cycle

Cardarine is not one of the first compounds people will choose to use in a bulking cycle since its main benefits relate to fat loss and endurance enhancement. But improving performance is still of great benefit for those doing a bulking cycle, as the more and heavier you can lift, the quicker your gains will come on.


Those wanting to give Cardarine a go in a bulking cycle is likely to be stacking it with a powerful bulking steroid like Nandrolone (Deca-Durabolin). Cardarine can serve multiple benefits here: to enhance cardiovascular strength and help power your workout endurance, while offsetting some of the cholesterol impacts that Deca is well known for.

Depending on your steroid experience, using Deca at anywhere from 300mg to 600mg weekly combined with 10-20mg daily of Cardarine is going to result in a powerful bulking result with a 10-week cycle. PCT will be required due to Deca’s extreme testosterone suppression activity.

Cardarine cutting cycle

A great SARM to stack with Cardarine for cutting or fatloss cycles is Testolone which gives a great strength boost. 20mg of Cardarine and 10mg of Testolone each day for an 8-week cycle will make for impressive fat loss and toning. This stack may require PCT following the cycle due to the addition of Testolone.


Advanced users who want an even greater boost to stamina during this cycle may concerning adding Stenabolic at 20mg daily, administered twice daily as that compound has a very short half-life of 5 hours or less. The increased endurance, stamina and strength brought upon in this cycle is going to greatly boost your performance, encouraging faster fat loss both directly through Cardarine’s impact on energy and calorie use, and indirectly as you can work out more intensively for longer.

Cardarine Stacks

Cardarine is commonly stacked with other compounds and works well with several of them. A common stack is using Ostarine and Cardarine, which boosts the effects of both compounds particularly when it comes to fat loss where Cardarine can complement Ostarine’s excellent fat loss properties very well with its powerful endurance enhancing attributes.


It’s not only other SARMs and similar compounds that can be stacked with Cardarine; some people use it alongside steroids. One example is to pair Cardarine with the powerful steroid Trenbolone where Cardarine can potentially reduce the severity of some of the serious side effects caused by that steroid – relating to blood pressure and cholesterol as well as breathing difficulties relating to the cardiovascular system.

Cardarine vs. Alternatives

I’m not a medical professional here to give you advice, but I firmly advise that you steer clear of using a SARM like Cardarine GW-501516 unless you have considerable experience with SARMs already. But even then, you’d be well advised to take a close look at safer, alternative options.


Here’s why:

Cardarine is essentially an experimental compound with little research into its effects. It is known it has caused very serious health risks in lab results, including cancer, and this unpredictability and mystery around its possible hazards make it a huge risk to use. Therefore, I strongly suggest checking out Cardarine alternatives instead.


Many replacements can offer very similar, or even better benefits compared to Cardarine – without the serious risks to your health that Cardarine presents both in the short term and long term.



Cardarine, unlike anabolic steroids, does not cause suppression of your natural testosterone function.

When using GW501516 on its own you won’t need to implement any post cycle therapy because your normal hormone production hasn’t been impacted.

The only time PCT will be required after the use of Cardarine is if you’ve been using it stacked with one more steroid that do cause testosterone suppression. In such cases, your PCT plan should follow standard procedure which normally includes drugs like Clomid and Nolvadex, and depending on the severity of suppression, sometimes HCG is also used.

None of these drugs will be required for users who are solely using GW501516 without the addition of steroids.
