How innovation is changing the muscle game

Bodybuilding and muscle development has been around for the past 100 years so it’s been only natural that science and compound development would catch up pretty quickly as it has over the past 30 years! In our blog today, we take a quick look at how science and innovation has caught up and why we are seeing an explosion in popularity around new compounds and what’s next for the future.

The old days:

Back in the old days people would train exceptionally hard however science and development hadn’t caught up pace to facilitate the type of exceptional muscle gains and fat loss capabilities we see today given the rapid uptick in performance improving compounds.

The new days:

Since the late 1990’s two things started to happen, people were getting bigger, faster and stronger and humans were improving at a much faster rate. It was during this time that a number of heavy performance enhancement products started to be ruled out for availability world-wide whilst there was an explosion in supplements available to people primarily online and through stores.

The new compounds:

With the introduction to the world of liquid SARMS and powdered peptides in the mid 2000’s, people in the sports fitness and body building community started to realise the phenomenal abilities for these new age products to achieve

all kinds of goals from muscle development to cardio enhancement to weight lost and more!

Since this new age spectrum of products came to be, the scientific community has worked tirelessly to develop the next generation of performance-based compounds for performance in all aspects which are generally-available globally for research purposes as new compounds are developed.

This boom in products being made available has been driven by innovation and a thirst for the ultimate in performance improvement products worldwide.

So which compounds do what?

Various compounds have been designed for various reasons and achieve various results. Primarily there are liquid compounds generally-developed as SARMS and powdered compounds known peptides. Depending on where you are in the world each region has its own rules and regulations around what’s available, so it is important to keep on top of where you are based and keep on top of the regulations in your region as some places may have more products available than others.

Liquid compounds:

There are quite a few of these so we have summarised the main compounds gaining popularity in the liquid SARMS space and what each of them does! Here are 3 of the top SARMS at the moment, why they have become so popular globally and what each of them does!

Lean Muscle Gains, LGD-4033:

LGD-4033 has been said to be one of the most important breakthroughs in the supplement world and represents the absolute best science has to offer the performance enhancing world for a number of reasons.

LGD-4033 is a product that binds with Androgen Receptors to produce the same results as injectable products without the need to use them. As a SARM it has been said to be the closest product to anabolic steroids in terms of strength without the side effects that come with them. It is non-toxic and can enable users to bulk up and drop fat without using injectables which is why this product is extremely popular in the performance enhancing world.

Rapid Muscle Repair, MK-2866:

MK-2866 is an oral SARM that binds to the androgen receptors and as such it shows selective anabolic activity. This also increases protein synthesis and helps to build lean muscle. MK-2866 uses its anabolic effects on muscle tissue specifically so users see targeted results and lean muscle gains. By targeted results this means targeted and rapid repair / healing. Importantly it also acts as an agent to reduce degeneration during recovery times and hence the name ‘rapid repair’ is highly indicative of this factor.

Rapid Fat Loss, SR-9009:

SR-9009 is a Rev-ErbA ligand which will bind to specific proteins and make them more active. By stimulating the Rev-Erb protein, SR-9009 can positively influence key regulatory mechanisms which will in turn have exceptional results on things like glucose metabolism, fat storing cells and macrophages. Key benefits from this include enhanced fat loss and significantly improved endurance capabilities.

Incredibly, subjects on SR-9009 will see several key developments during the cycle which will include less fat stored in the body, less cholesterol developed by the liver and more fat and glucose burned in the muscles.

Popular Peptides:

We have summarised here the three most popular powdered peptide compounds globally, what they do, why they are so popular and how they work!

CJC-1295 with DAC:

CJC-1295 is a synthetic GHRH analogue made up of 30 amino acids. It has been found to be highly effective with regards to the increase of growth hormone secretion. It is a highly popular peptide that acts similar to growth hormone releasing hormones (GHRH). CJC-1295 increases the production of growth hormone as well as IGF-1 – which has anabolic effects in adults.

By increasing these two hormones, it enhances protein production in the body, which in turn, boosts muscle mass. It also induces lipolysis – the breakdown of fat tissue, boosts recovery from injuries, increases bone density, and also reduces aging factors like skin wrinkles. It can also stimulate cell growth, due to which it can be used to treat withered tissue or organs.

CJC-1295 is sold in vials containing 2MG of lyophilised powder which should be stored under refrigeration. (It is acceptable however for them to be mailed unrefrigerated.) The contents can be reconstituted by adding a convenient amount of sterile or bacteriostatic water.


GHRP-2 is a Fat loss peptide, it also promotes Muscle Mass Increase, Protects Liver, has Anti- Ageing properties, Repairs Body, Strengthens Skin & Bones (amongst many other benefits). GHRP-2 is a synthetic ghrelin analogue that stimulates the release of endogenous growth hormone within somatotrophs of the anterior pituitary.

Discovered over 20 years ago with improvements having been made over the years to its quality and purpose. GHRP2 is a peptide made up of just 6 amino acids, it is a powerful stimulator of growth hormone release that has been found to be more potent than both Ipamorelin and GHRP-6.

It’s easier to build muscle mass and lose fatty deposits while GHRP-2 is being administered. Users report stronger libidos and better skin and hair quality during therapy with this powerful and trusted peptide.

GHRP-2 is sold in vials containing 5MG of lyophilised powder which should be stored under refrigeration. (It is acceptable however for them to be mailed unrefrigerated). The contents can be reconstituted by adding a convenient amount of sterile or bacteriostatic water.

HGH Frag 176-191:

Frag 176-191 is a 15-mer synthetic 16AA C-terminus peptide analogue of HGH to which Tyrosine is added at the N-terminal end. It is a fat loss peptide without negative effects. Stimulates the breakdown of fat. (Modified peptide fragment of HGH).

Frag 176-191 (Advanced Obesity Drug) was originally developed by Professor Frank Ng at Monash University in Australia in the 1990’s, with the intent of finding an anti-obesity drug that had the fat burning effects of human Growth Hormone (hGH) without its muscle building effect.
