I was looking into using MK 677 - by itself, no SARMs or anything - at 10mg per day while on a diet/cutting. Was going to run for 3-4 months depending on the diet length. Goal is to keep more muscle mass/strength, and I did not want to do anything hormonally (or otherwise) suppressive for a cycle.
I am not trying to maximize the GH response (hence the 10mg); I am more trying to increase the GH/IGF-1 but without increasing my appetite / lethargy too much. If appetite [primarily] was not an issue: I could go higher (20mg) in the dosage.
What feedback can you provide? I have read a lot of MK 677 reviews, and they are all over the map: Some love it, some notice nothing, some notice bad side effects (carpal tunnel, water retention - or so they way). Even the appetite increase does not occur for everyone (maybe they were given a fake substance?).
My suspicion posting this topic here at T Nation is: Most of you will say 10mg of MK 677 isn’t going to do much, but I understand: I just want to be dieting in a better state than I would have been otherwise (for retaining - or maybe gaining? - muscle and strength).
Background on me: Been training (not always intelligently) for almost 20 years, 34 years old, no AAS experience but have used many supplements (including clenbuterol and E/C stack, etc.). Current stats are ~205lbs at 5’ 10"; bodyfat maybe 12-15% (it’s hard to say).
Thanks for replying,
