Stenabolic (SR 9009) is a PPAR alpha modifier drug that is still in development as of 2015. Its creator is professor Thomas Burris of the Scripps research institute. Interestingly, it is sold as a SARM and research chemical, and it can be compared to Cardarine (GW-501516), as it is also an agonist of Rev-Erba. According to an article by “National Medicine,” it enhances exercise capacity in mice by increasing mitochondria in skeletal muscle. This is why it has been marketed and hyped around the internet as “exercise in a bottle.”
As mentioned above, Stenabolic has the ability to alter the activity of the skeletal muscle mitochondria, or in simple terms – it boosts your metabolic activity. This makes it similar to what DNP does, being SR 9009 much safer and not counterproductive to your endurance goals. What’s more, unlike DNP, SR 9009 has the ability to mimic actual aerobic exercise without actually putting in the conditioning. Therefore, it will boost your endurance instead of hurting it.
(SR 9009) binds to a protein called Rev-erbA. This is important, as this protein influences fat and sugar burning in the liver, the production of fat cells, and the body’s inflammatory responses. As a result, this interaction between SR 9009 and Rev-erbA allows you to make your current exercise regiment much more effective. In fact, even sitting on your butt all day will not hinder your objectives. All in all, the ultimate goal is to burn off energy from what you eat, instead of getting it stored as fat, which SR does great. Furthermore, it will attack the existing fat and burn it off.
Stenabolic (SR 9009) will help a person become leaner, and it will help them do more distance with cardio without getting winded as fast. Overall, it will increase your VO2 max, allowing you to improve your endurance.
Additionally, SR 9009 can benefit nonathletes as well, since it can reverse obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes.
Developers took mice with low amounts of muscle, low metabolic rate, and poor running capacity. Hence, the mice were basically human versions of out-of-shape couch potatoes. Once given Stenabolic, muscle and metabolic rate increased, even without being allowed to exercise. Then, once these mice were allowed to exercise, they were able to run 50% further without getting winded.
SR 9009 does not act like a fat burner, thyroid accelerator, or appetite suppressant (such as clenbuterol, T3, or certain stimulants). Therefore, you won’t experience a crash or feel tired on it. However, due to the fact that Stenabolic is so new and hasn’t been used very much by human athletes, we are still waiting for more information on what kind of undesired effects it can possibly have.
Stenabolic should be dosed at 20-30 milligrams (mg) per day and adjusted up or down by 10 mg depending on user preference. Regarding the cycle duration, the typical cycle length is 6-8 weeks, and it would be wise to stack SR 9009 with Cardarine (GW-501516) for a double dose of endurance power.
There is a big inconvenience with Stenabolic when compared to Cardarine, SR 9009 does not have a long half-life, so it must be dosed 3-4 times per day. However, some forum members have had good success doing it 2-3 times per day.
