The Three Best SARMs Bulking Stacks + Results You Can Expect

Many bodybuilders struggle with gaining mass, despite following their diets to a tee.

Sometimes, outside help is needed to push them in the right direction.

Today, we’ll be showing you how to take a strong step forward with our professional SARMs bulking stacks!

Three in total will be presented today and no matter which one you pick; it will bring your bodybuilding game to the next level.

3 SARMs Bulking Stacks

Worthy of note is the fact that we never recommend mixing two SARMs at the same time. That would guarantee high levels of Testosterone suppression, which would hinder your progress.

Stack #1 – Ligandrol + Ibutamoren

We’re starting things off strong with one of the best SARMs bulking stacks around.

Ibutamoren is not a SARM, but a Growth Hormone Secretagogue.

It combines perfectly with Ligandrol, and it’s safety and efficacy have been evaluated in multiple studies.

Both Ligandrol and Ibutamoren help you put on a ton of mass in a relatively short period of time.

Refer to the table below to learn more about how to use them:

No PCT after an eight-week Ligandrol cycle might seem a bit strange at first glance, but when you realize that MK-677 is being used as a PCT, everything becomes clearer.

Ibutamoren is a lot safer than traditional SERMs, but can only be used for mild to medium cases of suppression.

Results You Can Expect

You’re in for a surprise!

This stack can help you gain up to ten pounds of muscle in just eight weeks.

Most people gain around five, but if your genetics, diet and exercise routines are on point, the sky is the limit.

However, beware of the fact that you’ll also gain some fat on this stack, it’s not unusual to put on an extra few pounds and I’ll tell you why once we arrive at the ‘side effects’ section.

This can all be avoided with proper knowledge and a bit of willpower, so it’s nothing to be scared of.

Also worthy of noting is the massive spike in strength, it’s very likely that you’ll best your personal records on the big three!

We didn’t mention the faster rate of recovery you’ll experience once you start imbuing this stack.

It’s not uncommon for people in their 40s and even above to be visiting the gym six times a week on this stack!

One hidden benefit of using Ibutamoren is the increased quality of skin, hair and nails.

Not only that, but your sleeping patterns will also improve, and some people even go on to experience lucid dreams.

Lastly, you can push yourself to the limit with this SARMs bulking stack, as Ligandrol will ensure that your bones are strong, sturdy and healthy!

Stack #2 – YK11 + Cardarine

Cardarine is a great compound because it can both be used for cutting and bulking.

It’s a PPAR delta agonist, which means that it has an impact on how much oxygen your muscles are capable of processing.

On the other hand, YK11, being labeled as both a SARM and a steroid is a myostatin inhibitor which means that it will help you put on more muscle with ease.

Refer to the following table for more information on dosages, cycle length and PCT

PCT is absolutely necessary with this stack, and you’ll have to complete at least four weeks with Nolvadex to rid yourself of the suppression caused by YK11.

If you experience heavy suppression during your cycle with YK11, consider lowering your dosage to 5mgs per day for the rest of the cycle.

Read my full guide on Nolvadex PCT to learn everything you need to know about it.

Results You Can Expect

This is the strongest stack on our list and it will bring on the best results.

It’s recommended that you do have some experience with SARMs before you take on this stack, so as to not get overwhelmed by this combination.

A large majority of bodybuilders taking this stack put on about ten to fifteen pounds of raw muscle in just eight weeks. It sounds insane, but the logs and experiences we have collected over the years only seem to confirm the numbers above.

Next up is the massive increase in strength. You will laugh at your previous personal bests in the gym, as you’ll crush them with ease. It’s not uncommon to increase your bench by up to 50 pounds during just one cycle!

Also, the strengthened bones YK11 provides you with helps your body cope with all the new muscle, and you shouldn’t have any problems related to that.

On the other hand, Cardarine will improve your cardiovascular health and your lipid profile will also see a notable change for the better.

Not only that, but the increased endurance really stacks up well with the YK11, as you’ll be able to use the boost it provides to its full potential.

Last but not least, you will even lose some fat, as Cardarine is a great fat-burning agent. It won’t be anything groundbreaking, but enough to notice a difference!

Stack #3 – RAD 140 + Ibutamoren

The difference between this stack and the first one comes down to individual preference.

RAD 140 provides the bodybuilder with some of the best dry gains around, which means that you won’t have problems with water retention.

However, with Ligandrol, you’ll appear bigger and more muscular, but you will have to deal with water retention…

In the end, it’s up to you and the look you’re chasing.

This table shows you how to approach this stack:

We’re once again utilizing MK-677 as a PCT. RAD 140 might be suppressive, but it’s nothing MK-677 can’t handle.

Results You Can Expect

Dry gains are a given, but what else can you expect?

Around ten to twelve pounds of muscle mass, coupled with a drastic increase in your raw strength.

Better sleep thanks to the Ibutamoren really makes a difference. 

In addition to that, the increase in vascularity from RAD 140 is something to be reckoned with.

Even people that have never had any vascularity before start seeing their veins popping out with the helping hand of RAD 140.

Another thing to keep an eye out for is fat loss. Usually during a bulk, one expects to gain fat, but not with this stack.

Quite on the contrary, you will lose around 1 to 2% of your total body fat, which isn’t much, but it’s better than the alternative of gaining fat, as is usual during a bulk.

Last but not least, the enhanced recovery of Ibutamoren really helps you get the most out of RAD 140.

You will feel rested much faster than before and it’s not too unusual for bodybuilders on this stack to visit the gym five, six or even seven times a week!

Side Effects

Side effects are an unavoidable part of SARMs, but once we’re cognizant of them, we can take steps towards remedying them.

Water Retention

A known problem with Ligandrol and Ibutamoren, the best thing you can do is drink lots of water and follow the tips outlined in my MK-677 water retention article.


Most commonly associated with RAD 140 and YK11. The latter has a higher incidence of aggression among users.

The best thing to do is to be aware of your emotions and to realize that they are just fleeting.

You don’t have to identify with or act on them.

Testosterone Suppression

This can happen with any SARM out there, but is especially pronounced with YK11. That’s why a PCT is absolutely necessary when imbuing YK11.

If the suppression gets too heavy during your YK11 cycle, it’s best to lower your dosage or in extreme cases, stop your cycle completely.

It’s better to lose out on some gains rather than cause irreversible damage to your body.

Liver Toxicity

YK11 has a methyl ester in its ranks, which makes it hepatotoxic.

We recommend taking some liver support such as TUDCA to protect your liver.

Also, it’s important to get a hepatic panel done before and after your cycle.

Increased Hunger

Mostly pronounced with Ibutamoren and Ligandrol, the increased hunger is a double-edged sword.

Some people who aren’t too keen on eating benefit from it immensely, while others go way over their caloric needs and end up becoming fat.

You should take a moment and think about what group you belong to.

If it’s the latter, you should be careful and realize that the hunger you’re feeling is artificial.

Mild Acne

This is mostly a concern with YK11, but it can sometimes happen with RAD 140 as well.

There is no need to panic, as the acne is mild in nature and disappears as soon as you stop your cycle.

Read more about this topic in my ‘Do SARMs cause acne’ article.


It’s important to understand that keeping up with your diet and training is the most important thing out there.

These three SARMs bulking stacks will not magically transform you into the person of your dreams.

It will take several cycles, as well as a lot of willpower and determination to get there.

SARM stacks are a powerful tool in the right hands, and can help you speed up the process.

However, if you expect to become Hulk in just one cycle, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

To conclude, SARMs bulking stacks are all the rave now and this article has shown you exactly how to utilize them to get better results.

Remember to stay safe and good luck!
