In this article, we will go over the best LGD 4033 (also known as Ligandrol) dosages for beginners. We will discuss more in-depth regarding what is the best LGD 4033 dosage for different people and different cycles.

By the end of this article, you will find out what is the best LGD 4033 dosage for you and your goals.

Before we go over the best Ligandrol dosages, let’s do a quick summary of what this SARM actually is.

The LGD 4033, otherwise known as Ligandrol, Anabolicum or VK5211, was discovered and developed by Ligand Pharmaceuticals, a company based in San Diego, California, USA. At the moment, researches are still being conducted on the LGD 4033 by Viking Therapeutics

The LGD 4033 is a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator that is mostly used by bodybuilders as well as athletes. It is currently under research for treating diseases which cause muscle wasting, such as osteoporosis. This is done as it is able to connect itself to androgen receptors in our bones, as well as our muscles. It is also under research for treating certain kinds of cancer.

Ligandrol half-life

The half-life of a compound refers to the time taken to halve the concentration of the compound in the body. This means that the time of half-life is the time in which the concentration of the compound is halved from the original concentration of the compound that is being initially consumed.

Based on research, the half-life of LGD 4033 is estimated to be between 24 to 36 hours. Because of this, you are advised to take your daily dosage of LGD 4033 in a single session since its concentration in your blood will gradually increase. It will take 56 days for your levels of testosterone to return to normal if you stop consuming LGD 4033.

LGD 4033 (Ligandrol) dosage

There are no suggested dosages for the LGD 4033. However, it is recommended that you should go for a low dose, at about 5mg or 10mg daily for a period of 6 weeks. This would help in ensuring the effectiveness of the LDG 4033, while allowing you to experience minimal side effects.

Women who use LGD 4033 are advised to consume up to 5mg daily.

In most cases, users increase their intake of the LGD 4033 for every cycle. Do note that you should always increase your dosage gradually at a slow rate, at around 1mg to 2g daily. There are athletes who consume around 20mg daily, but that is not recommended for us.

No PCT LGD 4033 dosage

Now we will discuss on cycles in which you would be able to achieve positive results without needing a PCT. We would assume that the LGD 4033 that you are currently using is pure and of high quality. Sadly, a lot of SARM companies sell bunk products that are spiked with other substances. These products can be a lot more suppressive and can have side effects such as hair loss and gynecomastia.

You do not require the use of any other SARM in the few cycles that we will now discuss. We would also discuss about the dosages of LGD 4033 that you are advised to consume if you are following these cycles.

No PCT body recomposition dosage

The purpose of this cycle is to aid you in doing a body recomposition using LGD 4033 as well as Stenabolic, since LGD 4033 helps you in building your muscles while Stenabolic helps you burn off your fats. This cycle is very safe and you will not experience much suppression. 

This cycle is 8 weeks long, with a dosage of 5mg a day for the LGD 4033 and a dosage of 30mg a day for the Stenabolic. With this, you can lose roughly 2.5kg of your body fats and gain roughly 2.5kg of muscles.

No PCT Bulking Dosage

The purpose of this cycle is to aid you in gaining plenty of lean muscle mass without needing a PCT after your cycle. You would be able to recover naturally without much suppression. 

For the first 8 weeks of the cycle, the dosage of the LGD 4033 is 5mg daily while the dosage of the MK 677 is 15mg daily. For the subsequent 8 weeks of the cycle, there is no need for any intake of the LGD 4033. The dosage of the MK 677 remains the same, at 15mg daily.

No PCT Cutting Dosage

The purpose of this cycle is to aid you in cutting while being able to retain all your muscles. With this cycle, you may possibly even gain a few kilogrammes of muscle while Stenabolic burns off your body fats. The suppression experienced is barely noticeable as well.

This 8 week cycle requires a daily intake of 2.5mg of LGD 4033 and 30mg of Stenabolic. You are able to replace the LGD 4033 with 15mg of Ostarine as well.


There are different dosages of LGD 4033 that are suitable for different people and different cycles. In general, men would be advised to consume more LGD 4033 as compared to women but it should still be consumed in moderation. LGD 4033 can also be consumed with other compounds in a cycle to increase its effectiveness.
