Specifically in the US, we have a tendency to get extremely sedentary after college (marriage, kids, and work life all start to take it’s toll). We get fat and lazy (myself included, and am still fighting to get back to where I was). I would bet if this study was done with US farmers and/or construction workers (you don’t usually see fat farmers or construction workers, do you?), the results would be very similar, even though they don’t do winter fasting, but there workload does decrease drastically! But…. I would also bet that if those same construction workers were to do weight training in the winter (because they have more time), you probably wouldn’t see any drop off!
Thanks for the article. This and your others postings are a gold mine of information on men’s health that we aren’t getting anywhere else!
Not only is testosterone not the great savior, estrogen is not the bad guy. Most people, even women, shun estrogen as the evil hormone that makes you bloated and does all sorts of negative things. Although it’s rarely described what exactly the negative effects of estrogen are, most people agree nonetheless that’s it’s bad for your body composition. This is complete nonsense. In my article on hormones and fat loss I explained the positive effects estrogen has on abdominal fat storage, but estrogen does many more awesome things.
The ideal researcher is someone who has a couple cycles of anabolics under their belt. Ideally, the researcher is more experienced when it comes to SARMs.
They have already been lifting for a couple years and hit their genetic peak and want to pack on some more size in an 8-12 week time frame.
Researchers will not mind a little more natural testosterone suppression than what you get get with Ostarine or Andarine.
This is definitely not for first time anabolic or SARM users. LGD 4033 is too potent a mass builder for time users. You would honestly be better off and would see just as good of results with Ostarine.
Nonetheless, ligandrol is a very potent mass builder than ideal for researchers who want to add appreciable strength and size over a bulking cycle without having to worry about some of horrible side effects of AAS or designer steroids.
