Testolone and MK 2866 are both categorized as SARMs, however they are both very different, no questions about it.
I want to educated you all on the similarities and differences of these two SARMs.
Ok, let’s start with the similarities of these compounds. What makes them similar?
Well, they Testolone and MK 2866 are both very potent substances. They were both created in the lab to combat muscle wasting in cancer patients.
So if you are in a caloric deficit you can expect both of these SARMs to help you tremendously in preserving muscle.
This fact alone makes both of these compounds very flexible. Meaning they both work great for cutting fat and getting ripped, and for purely putting on solid muscle.
Like I said, super flexible.
They are even flexible enough to be stacked for even better results, meaning you can take both of these compounds together.
I’m starting to hear more and more, that MK 2866 and Testolone are one of the best SARMs stack.
Here are some other similarities, they are both safe (as long as you take them responsibly), they have similar half-lives, and both shouldn’t be taken for longer than 12 weeks.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention, they both increase recovery time after a workout.
The older you are, the more helpful that is. Can you imagine the benefits of recovering one or two days quicker than usual?
This means you can hit the gym more often, which will improve your physique. It also means you don’t have to put up with as much muscle soreness, which can be uncomfortable to some.
That has always been one of my main issues with lifting weights. I always seem to get extra sore and it would last extra-long.
For example, I would hit chest on Monday and I would be brutally sore until Thursday, which got annoying.
When taking MK 2866 or Testolone I was 100% by Wednesday, which is remarkable in my opinion.
Ok, those were the similarities, so how about the difference?
Well for starters, Testolone is actually much more powerful. It is hands down the most powerful SARM.
Just how much more powerful is it? Read this article to see my before and after photos and you will get an idea of just how strong Testolone is.
I put on over 20 pounds of solid muscle mass in 90 days, which is insane. MK 2866 is a potent substance but don’t expect to gain more than 10 pounds in 90 days.
It’s more of a cutting SARM in my opinion, since it can be used for holding onto muscle in a big caloric deficit.
I achieved that “ripped” look in 8 weeks. I lost about 20 pounds and retained muscle. Check out this article to see my before and after photos.
Also, since they are different in potency, you must be more cautious with Testolone. What I mean is you must take a PCT after your cycle.
You must do that so you stay safe and keep your hormones balanced. With MK 2866 you don’t really have to take a PCT, most people are fine without one, but in my opinion I really recommend taking one just to be on the safe side.
Better safe than sorry.
So these are the differences, and they are very small to be honest. There are more similarities than differences.
Testolone is much newer than Mk 2866, which is one of the oldest SARMs. But they are both safe if taken responsibly. Yes, Testolone is much newer but technology and knowledge on SARMs are much better now.
As long as you take your cycles responsibly there won’t be any issues. The biggest issue is find a quality source.
I’m reading lots of complaints about people spending tons of money, going through source after source with very minimal results. This is likely due to the product being diluted with water, to increase profits.
Some people even have terrible side effects like Gyno. This is likely due to shady companies claiming they are selling legit SARMs when in actuality they are selling prohormones (due to the prohormone ban of 2014).
It’s very important that you know how to choose a quality source, for your safety. Check out this guide before you buy SARMs. In the article I teach you how to choose a company safely and I also name a few that have been black listed (known to be shady) and recommend you stay away from.
