I wasn’t planning on using this instead of common gear. My plan was to see if the difference would be worth adding it to a stack, and potentially use it to make the most out of my gear, diet and training depending on what my bloods look like after. If it could hypothetically make a 10lb difference on a 12wk cycle it would be worth it to me.
The pathways affected are different than steroids and GH therefore used side by side there could be a synergistic effect for those with higher levels of myostatin or low levels of follistatin if YK11 makes a significant impact on your levels.
Right now one of the sketchiest parts about SARMs is finding a quality source and i have one.
I was skeptical about mk677 but it exceeded my expectations. Im still skeptical about YK11 but just from other people’s personal logs I have seen, it’s unlikely to cause any catastrophic results from a couple moderate cycles.
Suggested dose is 5mg-10mg /day for 4-6 weeks.
My logic is that myostatin regulates skeletal muscle growth. YK11 is supposed to increase follistatin production which binds to myostatin and prevents it from putting a damper on your gains. I know myostatin levels vary from person to person and strongly influence a persons natural body type and composition. If you are genetically gifted with low levels of Myostatin there is a good chance it wouldn’t do much. If you have naturally high levels it could have a significant impact on how much lean mass you can put on. My question is how much will it help, if at all, and is it worth it.
A trial run with bloods would be the only answer I’d take as an absolute on this because it’s the only way to know for sure.
I know you are just looking out for me and the other users here by saying flat out that the claims are false and it won’t work because of the unknowns. I appreciate it. But my gut is telling me to try itjust once and get tested before, during and after, then share my results to add to the limited pool of knowledge on this compound.
On the flip side If my doc can’t get me the tests i need im not going to waste my time with it because there would be no way to tell if it was worth it or put a quantitative measure on its effects on follistatin which is the only reason i am interested in the compound.
Below is the writeup from the site I get my shit from who have been super helpful and knowledgable with quality gear. I trust that they arent just blowing smoke up peoples asses when they could simply hype and sell things that have a longer track record to protect their reputation which is huge to UGLs.
YK-11 / METHOXYETHYLIDENE SARM (Stenabolic)
YK-11 is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM). YK-11 directly binds to the androgen receptors. Beside it being a selective androgen receptor modulator, YK-11 also functions as a myostatin inhibitor.
One of the most frequently reported effects of YK-11 is that of increased pumps and muscle fullness, with many users claiming that this effect is even greater than when stacking with other sarms. YK-11’s ability to build muscle has been compared to testosterone, far exceeding other SARM’s.
YK-11 has few side effects. Low level of suppression is possible in long term high dose use.
- Lean size gains without water retention
- Increase in muscular size and strength
- Muscle hardening
- Increase in Follistatin levels
- Inhibition of Myostatin levels
- No anabolic steroid side effects
- Possibly allow you to far surpass your body’s genetics in regards to accrual of muscle mass
- Increased muscular fullness and better pumps
DOSAGE AND USE:
YK-11 is dosed at 5mg per day for beginners and 10mg per day for advanced users. Cycle’s should run 4-6 weeks. Half-life is estimated at 6-10 hours. YK-11 can be stacked with other compounds for a big boost in muscle gaining potential. YK-11 is suited for cutting or bulking cycles and will excel in both uses.
