MK-677 (Ibutamoren) get all the Benefits of Growth Hormone Without Taking GH

What is MK-677 (Ibutamoren)?

MK-677 is not a steroid or even a SARMS (Selective androgen receptor modulator). MK-677 (Ibutamoren) is a secretagogue which is a chemical or substance that trigger secretion of a different substance. With MK-677 it triggers the secretion of Growth Hormone (GH). It actually makes your body produce its own natural GH via the Pituitary Gland.

What Are the Benefits of MK-677?

They are the same as the benefits of increased Growth Hormone (GH).

  • MK-677 can increase and persevere muscle loss especially in a deficit.
  • Decrease body fat. (Also increases your appetite).
  • Increase bone density.
  • Improve cognitive function.
  • Slow the aging process.
  • Speed up the healing processes.
  • Help you sleep better and increase REM sleep.

How Much to Take and How to Take it:

Most studies where done using a 25mg dose in pill form but more or less can be taken. 25mg seems to be the optimal dose for most people to see best overall results in terms og Human growth hormone and IGF-1 (Insluline Growth Factor) release.

The half life of MK-677 is 24 hours (stays in your system for 24 hours) so you can take it just about any time. Most people take it before bed as it can make you a bit tired and or drowsy. It’s also best to have more Growth Hormone (GH) being released while you are sleeping and in a recovery adn muscel building mode.

Are There any Side Effects Using MK-677?

Typically they are the same side effects you would experience taking real injectable Growth Hormone (GH).

  • Possible numbness in hands and feet.
  • Some people can get tired and lethargic.
  • Some people experience swelling/fluid retention which can cause joint and muscle pain.
  • If you have diabetic condition MK-677 may not be good for you since it can reduce insulin sensitivity and increase blood sugar.

Many of these side effects can be eliminated by possibly reducing the amount you take and or even simply letting your body adjust to it. So start off with a smaller dose and then increase it bit by bit till you get to the 25mg level for less possible side effects. Women can work up to a lower dose of around 10-15mg.

Is MK-677 Legal?

Yes MK-677 is legal to buy, sell and process, so having the product in your possession is not illegal. That said MK-677 is classified as an “Unscheduled Drug” since it is not fully tested or approved for human consumption. Because of this MK-677 is marketed and sold as a “Research Chemical”.

Bottom Line on MK-677:

MK-677 is a Growth Hormone (GH) secretagogue that really works as claimed! Just like real injectable Growth Hormone (GH), MK-677 has been shown to increase GH and IGF-1 levels quite significantly all while being relativley safe and side effect free. There are more possible benefits then shortcoming when it comes to using MK-677 but make sure you keep your expectations realistic. Price wise you can buy a months supply for about $50 which is incredible cheap compared to actual Growth Hormone (GH) which would also require a prescription and injecting several times per day. Not to mention that MK-677 (Ibutamoren) makes your body create more of its own Growth Hormone (GH) so as soon as you stop taking it you will simply return to normal levels.

Back from Oceanside California Holiday Update Video

Well I'm back from holidays, the family and I had a great time vacationing in sunny California where we stayed at the WorldMark Resort over at Oceanside. The best part for me was I just ate what I wanted to and took a break from everything training related for the most part.

I actually ended up losing about 5 pounds but I am sure some of it was water, some was glycogens and perhaps a little bit of fat since I was not stuffing my face with food like I was while on my bulk leading up to this vacation. Right now I am back up to around 213 even though I started a slight calorie deficit this week, most likely added glycogens from my workouts and some water getting back into my system.

When I got back I did a full body Sculpt Aim Body composition scan on myself and was surprised to see that I was under 10% even after the long bulk and holiday I snuck in at 9.8% body fat and a 99.3 Muscle Quality.

I am about 11.5 weeks out for the Vancouver Pro Am, sorry no posing just yet, really not much has changed since my birthday posing video as I was away for a week and a half on holiday and only recently started training again. Once I feel I have made at least a bit of a body composition change I will make a quick posing video for everyone.

The next 11 weeks or so it's go time, nothing but hard trying and structured eating. My plan is to scrub a little bit of fat till I get down to a percentage I'm more comfortable with but that still lets me to train hard and then the last month I will start cutting hard again. I hope to step on stage right around 205 to 210 at around 5% body fat or lower if I can add some more muscle over my last show which was the 2017 Popeye's Fall Classic where I competed in Classic Physique and Open Men's Physique.

It's my Birthday - Turning 49 with Posing

49 and 215 Pounds

This will be my last birthday in my 40's. I'm now 49 and only have a year left before I hit the big "Five Oh"! To be honest it doesn't really bother me since I am proud of my age and where I am in life and how I look.

I have been taking some yearly birthday photos over the last few years and it's kind of nice to go back and compare how I look moving forward as I age and I'm not going to lie... I was for sure leaner the last couple of years weighing in at around 195 pounds both years and looking pretty good I feel.

48 and 195 Pounds

This year on my birthday I am right at the tail end of my bulk and weighing in at a solid 215 pounds so 20 pounds up over my last two birthdays. There's going to be a little bit of fat gain on a bulk so I am looking much softer this year. However I for sure added some muscle during my bulk which when I get into my cut will be worth the uncombable plump stage. I don't really like not being lean so I am truly looking forward to starting the cutting stages of my contest prep.

Make sure to watch my entire YouTube video for some up to date posing in my Classic Physique shorts.

Get Fit Over 40 Update Video - Cold - Back Injury - Body Fat at 217 Pounds

I have been a bit under the weather lately, well for the last couple of weeks, had a bad cold that restricted me to at home workouts last week and even this week I am not 100% but at least I am making it to my regular gym.

To add injury to insult literally I pulled my lower back yesterday doing some deadlifts, I thought everything was going well and even completed a pretty easy set of 10 reps at 405 pounds but my back had a different idea when I went to pull 405 again for my last set. Looking back I didn't take into account that even though my legs and glutes have gotten stronger my lower back may have been lagging since I do not hit it as often. The weakest link is always the first to break and that's exactly what happened here.

I am planning on making a video on how to avoid injuries since I feel I have made enough mistakes to be a bit of an expert on the issue. For the most part I have been pretty injury free but when you lift heavy you are always taking some chances.

As many of you know I am in a bit of a bulk trying to get to around 220 pounds before cutting down for my upcoming show in July, the Vancouver Pro Am. I will also be competing in Classic Physique so I need to put on some muscle and get up to as close to a stage weight of 210 pounds as I can to be competitive with the other competitor.

For over a year now my Skulpt Aim has been dead to me as the internal batteries gave it up but recently I did some at home electronics repair and swapped out the batteries. This operation was a success and now my Skulpt Aim is back in business which allowed me to see how I am doing in this much heavier and a bit fluffier condition. I was actually really surprised to see that I am only up about 1-1.5% body fat over when I was about 20 pounds lighter so that's good news.

I plan to keep utilizing my Skulpt Aim While I cut to see how my body fat changes.
