If you want to know what SARMs are, how they work, how effective they are, and if they’re dangerous, then you want to listen to this podcast.

You’re watching your calories and macros.

You’re giving your workouts everything you’ve got.

You’re spending a small fortune on workout supplements.

And it’s all not enough. The needle just isn’t moving as quickly as you want.

Maybe you’ve thought about turning to steroids. You know they work, but you also know about the side effects and health risks, and you’re not ready to take that plunge (har har har).

And then you stumble upon SARMs, and you can’t help but wonder:

Are these the holy grail of bodybuilding supplements?

Can they really help you gain muscle and lose fat almost as effectively as steroids, but without any of the downsides?

And they’re cheap and legal!?

It beggars belief.

That’s why many people are claiming that SARMs are the ultimate supplements for health-conscious bodybuilders, and why many athletes are singing their praises for performance enhancement and muscle-building purposes.

It definitely sounds too good to be true, but is it? What does the science say?

Well, in this episode, we’re going to get to the bottom of all of it.

We’re going to look at what SARMs are, how they work, what research says about how effective and safe they really are.
