Sarms what are they?

SARMs is an acronym for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. A SARM is a drug that is a chemical twin to anabolic steroids. Though SARMs are thought to be new in the bodybuilding world, these drugs have been around since the 1940s


In the world of performance enhancement every athlete and gym goer is constantly looking for the next best thing to give them and edge. Whether it be for building muscle or dropping body fat. The new go to supplements for this purpose SARMS or selective androgen receptor modulators. Here is what a SARM will do for you in the simplest terms.


Sarms What Can They Do For Me?

Our bodies contain many different types of receptors such as the Androgen receptor. Typically, the androgen receptor will be stimulated through a process involving the hormone testosterone by using anabolic steroids. But, with SARMS, no additional testosterone is necessary to get the androgen receptors’ stimulated, which will allow the body to reap the benefits of someone on testosterone without actually needing the additional testosterone in your body. And even more interesting, many new SARMS available on the market today can be so specific that they stimulate the androgen receptor only at the tissue level, meaning they focus solely on stimulating muscle growth and nothing else. The benefits to this are astounding because you can reap the benefits similar to someone using testosterone, without any of the unwanted side effects that typically come along with testosterone usage such as acne, increased estrogen levels, change in mood, irritability, and loss of libido to name a few.

How Do SARMs Work?

To understand how SARMs work, we need to briefly look at how hormones, namely androgens, function. Androgens are the hormones responsible for masculine qualities, like facial hair, muscles, and lower body fat levels). The best known androgen is testosterone. 

The body regulates the production of androgens, because imbalances are a double-edged sword. On the positive side, the more androgens you have, the faster muscles grow. On the downside, you can suffer from acne, oily hair, cysts, elevated blood pressure, testicular atrophy, and so on. This is why steroid usage is so dangerous. 

SARMs, on the other hand, only focus on muscular growth by: 
  • Focusing on muscle and bone, not the prostate, brain, and liver like steroids 
  • Avoiding the breakdown of molecules, like DHT and estrogen 
  • Avoiding conversion into 5-A reductase, which also converts into DHT, the cause of unwanted side effects 

This means at SARMs work like growth hormones without impacting the body like an over-saturation of androgen hormones would. 

What Are The Benefits of SARMs?

Whether you are a bodybuilder trying to get over a plateau, a recreational gym-goer, a fitness enthusiast, or an elite athlete, SARMs have a number of benefits that greatly outweigh more controversial methods, like steroids. 

SARMs can: 

  • Increase lean body mass 
  • Prevent muscle loss (catabolism) during cutting 
  • Accelerate rehabilitation after injuries 
  • Decrease recovery time 
  • Increase fat loss 
  • Increase muscular endurance 
  • Decrease overall fatigue 
  • Regulate your libido 
  • Be used safely by females 

SARMs are better than steroids for the following reasons: 

  • Orally taken, not injected 
  • No liver toxicity from methylated compounds 
  • Doesn’t change to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) 
  • Doesn’t change to estrogen 
  • Doesn’t inhibit HPTA or cause a reduction in LH or FSH (hormones) 
  • Completely legal 
  • Virtually undetectable 

Another benefit to SARMs is that the side effects are minimal. You rarely have to worry about negative effects.


If you are interested in using something like a SARM but are not sure where to begin you need to nail down what your specific goals are. Reason being is because there are so many different SARM compounds on the market now that you may end up buying the wrong one for your personal needs.

For example, if you are looking to build muscle SARMS UP TEAM recommends SARMS UP TEST MAX RAD-140 Testolone  AND MYO BOOSTER YK-11.  Both are excellent for putting on lean muscle and getting stronger.

On the other hand if you are looking to drop body fat while increasing your performance in the gym SARMS UP TEAM recommends SARMS UP RIPPED MAX GW 501516. This product not only heightens your androgen receptors but they also increase your PPAR receptor activity.

These PPAR receptors are responsible for lipolysis, which is your bodies’ ability to take stored body fat and use it up as an energy source. Awesome product for anyone looking to change their body shape.
