What Is Cardarine?
Cardarine is a PPARδ receptor that was developed as a safe alternative for heart and metabolic conditions. That’s right guys, it isn’t a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator (SARM), but it is marketed as once.
Because it helped enhance endurance, stamina and metabolism it has gotten very popular amongst bodybuilders and athletes. It’s now known as the strongest endurance enhancer out there.
I’ve personally used GW501516 and was very suprised by the effects. I’ll share my personal experience with this compound later on in the article.
The reason why this compound has gotten so popular is because it has the ability to drastically enhance performance and stamina. Let’s take a look at the benefits you can expect from GW5051516.
What To Expect From Cardarine
This is where things get interesting. There’s a lot of things you can expect from this compound. Cardarine is known to have many benefits that will help you boost progress.
Based on acedotal experiences, you can expect the following..
Improved Cardiovascular Performance
One of the very first things you'll start noticing is that GW501516 boosts your stamina. It's going to increase a lot and you will be able to push yourself to the limit. It really shines during cardio sessions, it will be a lot easier to complete your workouts. This effect usually lasts throughout the entire cycle.
Boost Fat Loss
With the increased stamina and performance, you will be burning through a lot more calories. It's also known for boosting metabolism. Cardarine can help use your stored fat for energy, speeding up the fat loss progress. This is why a lot of users will add it to a cutting cycle.
Preserve Muscle Mass
Whilst in a caloric deficit, you may be at risk of losing muscle mass. Cardarine might be able to help preserve muscle mass whilst cutting. When the PPAR delta gets activated it doesn't only melt fat off, it also stimulates the muscle fibres.
No Suppression Of Hormones
Since this compound doesn't interfere with your natural hormone production, you won't require a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT). It also has no estrogen related side effects. This is a huge advantage over other performance enhancers. You can perfectly stack it with SARMs You can even stack it with Stenabolic and you still won't need one.
Cardarine is extremely effective at low dosages of 10 to 20mg per day. If you don’t have any experience with GW501516, most users will advise to start out with a low dosage.
Even at 10mg per day, you will be able to experience a significant increase in performance. Due to the fact that this compund is very potent, it’s not recommended to go any higher than 20mg per day.
Based on anecdotal experiences, you should run it anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks depending on your goals. Of course, some users will run it for longer but it isn’t advised to do so.
Since Cardarine has a half-life of about 10 to 24 hours, you’ll need to dose it twice a day. Taking it once in the morning and again in the evening seems to be what most users prefer.
You will also find that a lot of people choose to combine Cardarine with other SARMs such as Ostarine, Andarine or even RAD140.
Stacking SARMsis mainly done to help enhance the results and progress.
Cardarine Side Effects
There aren’t a lot of side effects reported with the use of Cardarine. However, during one of the clinical studies with Cardarine, mice started to develop cancer.
The dosages used were extremely high and for extended periods. I believe the smallest dosage used was 55mg per day, which is a lot more than the average dosage. The study also lasted roughly 2 years while most only use it for several weeks.
During my cycle with GW-501516, I occasionally experienced a slight headache, but I’m not sure if it was because of the product. Other than that, I felt great and the results were impressive.
