This is going to be a full guide and review of RAD-140 Testolone, a genuine SARM is also one of the most potent, and has often been compared to anabolic steroid in its strength.
What I’m going to do here is talk you through the truth about it. How good Testolone really is, and what realistic RAD-140 results you should expect after your first cycle.
Plus, I’m going to talk to you about normal dosage ranges, side effects to watch out for, and how it compares to other SARMs out there. I’ll also give you a bit of advice on stacking it.
Finally, I’ll talk you through what high-quality SARMs look like, so that you can learn how to find the best quality RAD-140 for sale.
Basic Info About RAD-140 Testolone
RAD-140, also commonly known as Testolone, is an investigational research chemical that was created as a potential testosterone replacement therapy solution. TRT is used to deal with muscle wasting illnesses and bone conditions like osteoporosis.
In rats, it was found to be safer than traditional TRT. However, despite this being found in 2011, the chemical is yet to undergo further trials a decade later.
It is a potent non-steroidal SARM (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator). It works by selectively targeting androgen receptors in muscle and bone tissue, and modulating the hormonal messaging; with the results of stronger bone growth and both stronger and larger muscle growth.
RAD-140 Effects & Benefits
It’s important I tell you guys here that RAD-140 has never had human trials, so you are dealing with an untested research chemical.
However, in terms of its effects, studies have been done on primates. In one study, it was found that Testolone was potentially a “potent anabolic” for both humans and nonhuman mammals.
The same study, and analysis of other conducted studies, also concluded that it was fully anabolic on muscle and bone, but did not have the same impacts on other areas such as the prostate.
Now you understand the formal potential effects and benefits, let me quickly talk you through the effects a cycle of RAD-140 had on me. On top of that, I’m comparing my results to a friend of mine who uses it as well, to get the overall average effects we experience.
Realistic results are as follows after a single cycle of around 10 weeks:
- Increase in the quality and size of muscle tissue
- Bone density will start to increase
- You will feel much stronger within a couple of weeks
- Your determination and drive will increase
- Up to 10% weight gain in 28 days (mostly LBM – lean body mass)
- Faster recovery times
The other point I will have to make here about realistic RAD-140 results you can obtain in a single cycle of average length, is that it will very much depend on your starting baseline, how much physical effort you put in, and the nutrition you put into your body as well.
SARMs are not like anabolic steroids. They will not produce pronounced results unless you really push yourself physically and back it up with great nutrition. You’ll also need a great base of increased vascularity and fitness through cardio work to get the most out of SARMs generally.
Is RAD-140 Like Using Anabolic Steroids?
Testolone isn’t like an anabolic steroid in that it is far more highly targeted to muscle and bone tissue for its androgenic effects, plus, it is not as strong or aggressive as most anabolic steroids at typical doses.
However that’s not the whole story. At high doses it can be very aggressive. You will get significant growth of muscle tissue, which for some people can be too fast if they haven’t developed the underlying structure to cope with it. This can lead to injuries and weaknesses in the muscles.
RAD-140 is therefore definitely close to anabolic steroid aggressiveness at high doses, but you shouldn’t be going near those doses unless you are very experienced. On top of that, just like anabolic steroids, it is significantly suppressive natural testosterone production.
RAD-140 Dosage Range
The dose of RAD-140 you take will depend on several factors:
- Your underlying bone and muscle structure
- Your experience with SARMs
- Effects you want to produce
- Whether you are taking it individually or stacking it
- How long you will be cycling it for
There are a lot of variables in there which are difficult to break down and analyze. On top of that, there is no baseline of dosage is to take because it’s never been through human trials, let alone for use by bodybuilders.
So all I can talk about is the range that I used based on my own experiences, those of people I know, and research online.
Typically, a beginner’s RAD-140 dosage could be as low as 5 mg per day. This is individually, and you could even knock a couple of milligrams off if you are stacking it as a beginner. However, for most people 5 mg in a stack, or between 5-10 mg on its own, is a good starting point.
The highest dose I’ve taken daily is 20 mg per day. That was horrendously suppressive and just too much. I actually cut the dose in half after three weeks. I’ve seen guys talk about 30 mg per day, but I would suggest they are doing themselves significant long-term damage, in terms of their potential for partial shutdown of natural testosterone production.
As a beginner I would start with 5 mg, and the consensus seems to be a good dose for stack for an experienced person is around 10 mg, and on its own, up to 20 mg. That for me, would always be the ceiling.
How To Create A Bulking Stack Using RAD-140
Testolone will seriously pack on bulk. Because it sends messages to your muscles telling them to grow at up to 60% faster than testosterone does, you will definitely see a significant increase within your first cycle.
As I always say, the power of SARMs is in the stack. You can amplify the effects of a single one by pairing up with complimentary ones, and also using the base of a SARM that produces an energy output increased, so that you can push yourself harder. This will allow you to build more muscle, cut fat, and increase your endurance.
This is the RAD-140 bulking stack I use:
- 10 mg Testolone daily
- 5 mg Ligandrol daily
- 5 mg Cardarine daily
- 10 week cycle
- Strong PCT supplement (Clomid) definitely required
- 10 week break between cycles
Now I’ll just say a few things about this bulking stack to help you understand.
Obviously Testolone is building the bulk of the fresh muscle tissue. That is being backed up by Ligandrol that can also build muscle tissue. However, its strength is in protecting muscle in a calorie deficit, and telling the body to cut fat. So you will tone even further adding it.
Cardarine is not an androgenic SARM, it is a PPAR-Delta agonist. That means it tells the body to burn more glucose in muscle tissue. The net benefit is that you will get a surge of energy when you work out, allowing you to push yourself harder to cut more fat, and of course, build muscle quicker.
I would almost always advocate a break between SARMs cycles equal to the length of the cycle you’ve just done. However, you can shorten that cycle if you are switching between androgenic and non-androgenic SARMs.
What I mean is, leave 10 weeks before using androgenic SARMs again. But there’s no reason once your testosterone levels have recovered and you are fighting fit, you couldn’t within four or five weeks start a short cycle of something like Cardarine, Ostarine, or SR-9009 which are not androgenic, and can deliver an energy boost, or protect muscles while you cut.
RAD-140 Side Effects
Rad-140 Testolone does have side effects, which I’ve already briefly touched on.
At higher doses you are going to get significant testosterone suppression. Some studies in animals have shown a 40% suppression in as little as 28 days. If you keep hammering after that, you could be in danger of a complete, or at least partial, testosterone shutdown.
A complete testosterone shutdown is the worst-case scenario because it sometimes never comes back. That is something you definitely want to avoid.
But as long as you keep your dose to the minimum possible, and you are alert to the signs of testosterone suppression, then you shouldn’t have a problem in avoiding side effects.
The classic signs of testosterone depression are:
- Feeling physically and emotionally depressed
- Muscle development stalls
- Energy levels are minimal
- Sex drive disappears
- Test will start to shrink
- Body hair diminishes
- Potential for additional breast tissue to grow
Now for crying out loud, do not ignore the signs of testosterone suppression for so long that you let additional breast tissue growth, because that requires surgery to get rid of it.
If you start to feel the signs of any of those using Testolone, then I’d advise you to lower the dose, or cut the cycle short and start PCT immediately.
If it’s only minor, you can ride it for a couple more weeks at most, but do not let it take hold because it will be harder to reverse, even using a potent PCT like Clomid.
RAD-140 Vs Ostarine
I often see people online asking about RAD-140 Vs Ostarine. As I hope you can now understand, such comparison is ludicrous because they are completely different types of SARMs.
Testolone build rapid muscle tissue and strength. That’s what it does.
Ostarine will not build additional muscle tissue. It’s strength lays in protecting muscle tissue by telling your body to burn fat before muscle tissue in a calorie deficit.
So they are the complete opposite of each other. One is used for bulking, the other for cutting cycles.
Can You Trust RAD-140 User Reviews?
You’ll see plenty of RAD-140 reviews online. Some will be generic formal ones that are easy to spot. Some will be like this, where an experienced bodybuilder will be trying to review it realistically.
But the ones you really have to watch out for are those user reviews on places like Reddit. The really bad ones usually mention the name of the SARMs company. That should tell you that they are working for a competitor.
All you get the ones that tell you how absolutely wonderful it is. Again, take those with a pinch of salt. They usually promote a specific company, or they are just lying about the extent the gains they have achieved for bragging rights.
What About Before & After Photos?
It’s the same with those before and after photos you will see in reviews. You simply don’t know the truth.
They could be real, but they could be complete fakes. Or, they are the result of several cycles, or doses much higher than you will use. Or after months of steroid use. You simply do not know the context.
So as with stuff submitted by people online in writing, always be skeptical of before and after photos. The only way to know is to try a cycle of RAD-140 yourself.
Where To Buy RAD-140 Testolone
Let’s finish up here by telling you where you can find high quality RAD-140 for sale.
Surprisingly for most people, that’s actually harder to achieve than you would think. The problem is that they are unregulated research chemicals. So there is no benchmark on quality.
The only way you can know if its good quality is if the company selling it to you has a third-party, independent lab, benchmark testing report for the latest batch on sale for you to view. Let me tell you, not many companies do that.
However, these are three companies which definitely do:
1. Science.bio sell high-quality powder and liquid SARMs. Prices are excellent and they are one of my preferred places to buy SARMs. 300 mg of Testolone in liquid, dosed at 10 mg/mL, will cost you $60.
2. Swiss Chems sell high-quality SARMs capsules. If you’re a beginner I would recommend capsules because they are so precise to dose. At the time of writing this, 60 capsules, each dosing 10 mg (total dose 600 mg) retails at just $76.95.
3. Chemyo is another great place to buy SARMs in the USA. They sell 50 mL dropper bottles of liquid SARMs, compared to the usual 30 mL that most companies sell. A 500 mL dropper bottle of RAD-140, dosed at 10 mg/mL (total dose 500 mg), costs $69.99.
