YK-11 is a myostatin inhibitor and a powerful anabolic compound. Its structure is between a DHT (5-α-dihydrotestosterone) and a SARM with a highly selective effect on androgen receptors. DHT is a stronger testosterone form that is responsible for the development of male characteristics. It targets hair, muscle growth, penile and prostate development in men. YK11 is known to help bodybuilders bulk up fast with minimal side effects that are normally experienced when taking steroidal compounds.
When you take YK-11 Myostine, it attaches itself to select androgen receptors to stimulate follistatin expression. Follistatin is a known a myostatin inhibitor. In relation, myostatin is responsible for collaring the speed of growth and development in muscles, most notably in skeletal muscles. In essence, YK11 works in this manner:
You’ll see that androgenic and anabolic agents are absent in the chart. YK-11 Myostine is only classified as a SARM because it does bind to androgen receptors. However, it does not fully function as a SARM when it comes to building up muscle.
Anecdotal reports suggest that results of YK-11 Myostine can be seen in 4 to 8 weeks. Some were able to get as much as 5-6lbs of lean muscle in a 4-week cycle. Others expressed gaining 10lbs of lean muscle after their 8-week YK-11 cycle.
There are, of course, some considerations to think of when expecting results from YK-11. Everyone has a pre-determined genetic makeup of how fast and how big their muscles can grow. Others can get the same effect with the regular YK11 Myostine dose and cycle. Others feel that there’s a need to push their intake by increasing the duration as well as dosage. To support the effects of Myostine YK11, bodybuilders also make it a point to increase their intake of protein to help with muscle formation during the bulking and cutting phase.
When taking YK-11, some have experienced the following.
With these fast results and benefits, it’s no wonder that Myostine YK-11 is one of the popular SARMs in the market.
However, taking YK11 does not mean there are no side effects to worry about. There are no recorded side effects of YK-11 because most of the research done was on muscle samples rather than human and animal testing. Some researchers who tried YK11 did experience the following:
Most who report experiencing these side effects experimented with increased dosage and cycle of YK-11. Since the impact of Myostine can persist even after the last intake, PCT may be required to reverse suppression.
