I Hasta Osta - My Ostarine Trial complete with bloodwork

Ladies & Gents,
 
After months of careful planning and research akin to a small scale military operation, here begins my promised foray into the wonderful world of SARMS.
 
I will be testing Ostarine 25mg for 13 weeks during my first ever proper cut, and using 6 Bromo for a three week PCT. Bloods are going to be taken and compared, as are progress pics. Everything I eat will be meticulously weighed and calculated. I will avoid all other supplements bar whey protein, limit alcohol consumption, and anything else that may skew results.
 
In short, we are going to science the sh1t outta this.
 

 

Aim:
  • Maintain a steady reduction in waistline measurement (rate to be determined in first weeks)
  • Ideally looking for ~750g per week fat loss (I realise actual bodyweight may be influenced by the Osta)
  • Reduce body fat until abs are visible (estimated 10% BF)
  • Explore the effectiveness of Ostarine on body recomposition, and any negative effects on the endocrine system.*
  • Reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) and Triglyceride whilst increasing HDL.* (My chol is on the higher end of normal so no major issue here.)

Subject: (me)
  • 33 years of age, training on/off for 10 years but solidly training now for 7 months. Primarily training for hypertrophy.
  • Currently weighing 109.8kg at 6'5" tall
  • Waist measurement is 109.5cm
  • BF% estimated around 18-20%
  • I have the occasional drink but do not take drugs or smoke. Currently only on asthma medications.
  • Diet is regimented and clean aside from the odd chocolate and fast food stop. Strict cut will eliminate this.
  • Lower back injury from 12 years ago is currently in good form despite a little sciatica now and again (deadlifts and heavy squats have been omitted from training for this reason.)

Method:
  • Maintain a caloric deficit of -20% adjusting as necessary.
  • Consume high protein diet consisting of approx 240g daily (~2.3g/kg bodyweight)
  • Training currently using the DoggCrapp method. As it works beyond failure it might just be the perfect platform to see if Ostarine can increase strength whilst loosing bodyfat.
  • Compare before and after progress pics to hopefully discern a considerable difference in appearance.
  • Blood tests - a baseline test has already been done, with more blood to be taken 6 weeks in, during week 13, and 4 weeks after that.*
  • Cholesterol will hopefully be corrected through improvements to diet, and through weight loss.*

* In relation to the blood tests, some have claimed Test (total and free) drops whilst others have reported mild suppression of LH/LSH. Others yet have reported negative effects on cholesterol levels (even the bottle has an HDL warning), and a few people have experienced sides such as gyno (whether these individuals were more susceptible or had pre-existing conditions is not known.) Hopefully me doing these bloods and avoiding other products/supplements that might skew results will assist in uncovering exactly what effects Osta has on the body and can help others in making an informed decision.

I won't post my training sessions here- my training journal is for that. (You can jump to Part III of my journal here.) However I will post at minimum a weekly update as to my progress and experiences. Posts may be more frequent if I get too excitable or bored lol.
 
As mentioned, progress pics were taken yesterday and will be posted when I get time to edit out the ugly lol.
 
Let's do this!

Good stuff.  I'll look forward to seeing the results from this as I do like Ostarine.  I'm currently doing a little 25mg run myself.  Do you do all the extreme stretches with your DC training?

Cheers bud. I read your log front to back and front again. You did a great job and if I can replicate even close to your results I will be a happy man.
 
Yep I do the extreme stretches but TBH I don't really rate them over normal stretching, other than perhaps doing two legs at the same time saves time lol.

Good luck Brett, not been around for a bit.

Will you also be measuring strength to see if it helps that? Ostarine seems to be very popular!

Nice one.  I really enjoyed that first Osta run and like I say rated it highly after that.  I also run it at 10mg from time to time just because.  I've no idea how bad for me and my hormones that is though.  Up to now I haven't felt any negative effects but I suppose you don't know until you've had the bloods done.
 
This current run I'm doing and then going straight into a Halo cycle.  I'm cutting on the Osta and then hopefully slowly reversing out through the Halo staying lean.  I'm 2 and a half weeks in and I've dropped a decent amount of body fat so far without dropping too much weight.

Good to see you're still about mate! Not measuring strength per se, but as I'm pushing failure each session it should be clear to see if it does make me stronger whilst losing weight. I've been doing the same routine for a while now so it will be easy to compare current and past progress. And yes it seems very popular, but from what I've read justifiably so!

Sounds good. Halo is a bit more potent IIRC shuts you down? No way near ready for that yet.

Hi mate. Was keen on the 4033 too. Are you finding it's not doing much then? I believe the sales pitch is that it is ideal for bulking? Is it more suppressive?

Lol I like that. You should trademark that before it gets out.
 
The stuff was designed for muscle wasting diseases, ie. to hold on to muscle in an environment which wants to lose it. I figured it would be best suited for my cut, but may apply it to a bulk later depending on what I see from this cycle.

 In 3 weeks at 5mg it did nothing bar shrink my balls, upped to 10mg and will see for a week if nothing than up it to 20mg.
it was ment to be much stronger than osta but I'm still waiting on it to 'kick in'

Hmmm. No change in weight or BF at all then? IIRC people mentioned they felt bloated on it.

Halo is definitely a lot stronger than Osta with PCT being a must but the last Halo cycle I did was fantastic in regards to gains and lack of sides.  I literally didn't notice any sides at all which isn't something I can say for the other PH's I've tried in the past.  This is why I'm running it again.  To be honest, unless someone puts out a decent argument for something new that comes to the market I might just stick with Osta and Halo for all future cycles.

Fair enough. IIRC you didn't PCT with Osta. What did you do for Halo?

Nope didn't bother with Osta.  For Halo I ran Nolva for 5 weeks at 20mg with Osta at 10mg.  Felt fine throughout.
