I did 6 weeks of ostamuscle standalone as my first PED cycle. I gained a total of 10 pounds on my bulk up to 186 at 11% bodyfat. (about 80% muscle, 20% water weight). Bench went up 25 pounds and squat went up 25 pounds.
I had no side effects besides a slight drop in libido around week 4. I upped the dose from 20 to 30mg to keep the gains coming as had 2 weeks to go. I used ArimRX at 25mg for the last few days of my cycle and libido came right back.
Ostarine is a great compound. I got 5-6 compliments in the last fee weeks in the gym from guys saying I got bigger. Definitely would take again! EA provides a legit product. I was very impressed.
Groups on the internet, such as the SS forums, have probably left untold amounts of guys disappointed with how they've looked after 3-12 months. Meanwhile, the "bro" who goes to the gym and does curls, bench, shoulders and a few chin-ups and leg presses totally blows the SS "student" out of the water, getting bigger arms, shoulders, pecs and upper back without that much weight gain. Thus trashing the SS mantra of people being unable to induce significant localised hypertrophy, which skinny fat guys benefit from aesthetically.
