Ligandrol (VK5211, LGD-4033) is an investigational selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) for treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting and osteoporosis, discovered by Ligand Pharmaceuticals and currently under development by Viking Therapeutics.
Ligandrol has been found in World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) samples and in racehorses too. Like anabolic steroids, it can stimulate muscle growth. “SARMs have shown superior side effect profiles compared with anabolic steroids, which arguably makes them attractive for use by individuals seeking an unfair advantage over their competitors”.
Increased Lean Muscle Mass
One of the main reasons people research with this compound is because it’s one of the most effective SARMs for gaining lean mass. It directly targets the androgen receptors in the muscles and bones.
Clinical studies have shown it to be extremely effective when it comes to building muscle. Even at low dosages this compound is capable to pack on size fast.
It’s often compared to RAD140 because it packs on muscle very rapidly.
I’ve used many different SARMs but found Ligandrol to give the most impressive results. It really shines when you are bulking up and in a caloric surplus. When it is used correctly, you can expect impressive results.
It’s not unheard of to gain anywhere from 10 to 15lbs of muscle tissue during a cycle.
