    Angry Competitive Edge Labs- PCT Assist 5 lbs. of muscle in 30 days


    If your reading this, then you know what this log is going to be about! Getting bigger and stronger in one month with CELs PCT Assist

    Before I get started on this mission I want to thank CEL for the opportunity to run this product as a standalone. I appreciate the opportunity and look forward to giving everyone an honest, interesting, and fun log to follow along. At the end of this log I hope to have gained significant strength and 5 lbs. of lean muscle! Reps to everyone who is subbed and please feel free to give any suggestions, tips, feedback, etc. throughout the log.


    Background

    I've been training for just under a year and a half. I've experienced some great gains considering that for about 5 months I was doing a lot of distance running (about 25-30 miles a week). This log is a last ditch effort before my July 11th wedding to add on some muscle and get stronger on all lifts. My workouts during this log will probably follow a 4 or 5 day split. I know this is probably not the most ideal split for gaining strength or mass but I want these gains to be as lean as possible. Enough about all of that, here is some info on the weapon of choice for this project!!!

    PCT Assist is designed to help increase natural testosterone levels during the period of Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) or as part of a natural testosterone enhancement regimen.

    Why Choose PCT Assist?
    PCT Assist contains precise ratios of active ingredients at proper dosages and correct standardizations in order to help optimize natural testosterone levels along with helping to control estrogen. There are no filler ingredients; every active in PCT Assist is specifically dosed to help you maximize your results.

    PCT Assists cost effective formula can help save you money by eliminating the need to have to purchase numerous stand alone products to get the proper amounts of actives included in the PCT Assist formula.

    PCT Assist Benefits:

    Optimize Natural Testosterone
    Improved Estrogen Management
    Improves Libido
    Help Preserve Muscle Gains
    Improved Strength, Recovery, & Lean Muscle
    Ideal for PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) or Natural Testosterone Enhancement Regimens
    Cost Effective + Adequately Dosed + Standardized Potencies = Natural Testosterone Support Solution


    Examining the Ingredients:

    Trans Resveratrol (50%)
    Trans Resveratrol is a natural compound that is found in the skin of red grapes. It has a number of overall health benefits due to its antioxidant properties and is well know for its cardiovascular benefits, but the primary reason for its inclusion in PCT Assist is for its potential to help control estrogen and maximize natural testosterone levels.

    Trans Resveratrol works at the receptor level to block estrogen receptors. The benefit there is two fold as it helps eradicate estrogen while also helping to boost natural testosterone production. It is a unique compound in that it has the capability of modulating estrogen receptors as well as controlling aromatase.

    Quercitin (95%)
    Quercitin is included in PCT Assist because it is a natural inhibitor of estrone sulfase. The benefit there is two fold as by helping to inhibit estrone sulfase, it helps with the absorption of resveratrol and icariin and also enhances the anti-estrogenic activity of the product.

    In addition to the primary reasons for the inclusion of quercitin in PCT Assist, quercitin also has a variety of other overall health benefits. It is a flavonol that exhibits potent antioxidant effects and has anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties.

    Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C)
    Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is a naturally occurring phytochemical found such vegetables as broccoli and cabbage. It is included in PCT Assist due to its effect on modulating estrogen metabolism. I3C is thought to help increase beneficial estrogen metabolites while decreasing the ?bad? estrone metabolites.

    Icariin (60%) (Horny Goat Weed)
    Icariin is derived from Horny Goat Weed. There are numerous standardizations available, but for the purpose of inclusion in PCT Assist, we selected the ultra potent 60% extract.

    Icariin is thought to increase circulating testosterone levels as well as help improve sex drive, making it an excellent addition during the post cycle therapy period. In addition, it is thought that two of the metabolites of icariin may be potent estrogen receptor antagonists, making it even more synergistic with resveratrol.

    Coleus Forskohlii (10% Forskolin)
    Coleus Forskohlii is included in PCT Assist to help signal optimal testosterone levels and help improve body composition.

    Piperine (95%)
    Piperine is included in the PCT Assist formula due to its ability to enhance absorption of nutrients and phytochemicals in the intestines. It is also thought to inhibit the glucuronidase enzyme, which is an enzyme that degrades resveratrol.

    PCT Assist Supplement Facts:
    Serving Size: 3 capsules
    Servings per Container: 60
    Amount Per Serving:
    Trans Resveratrol (50%) ? 600 mg
    Quercitin (95%) ? 600mg
    Indole 3 Carbinol ? 175 mg
    Horny Goat Weed (standardized fro 60% Icariin) ? 150 mg
    Coleus Forskohlii (10% Forskolin) ? 100 mg
    Piperine (95%) ? 20 mg

    PCT Assist Other Ingredients:
    Magnesium Stearate

    PCT Assist Suggested Use:
    As a dietary supplement, take 3 capsules twice daily spaced out 8 to 12 hours apart, preferably with meals. Do not use for more than 6 to 8 weeks without at least a 4 week break between cycles.


    Tomorrow I will be posting more details on nutrition, workout plan, and supplementation. I will have weekly pics and weigh ins.

    I've been using this product since Feb, solid product. Sub'd.

    P.S the new one (the one you're taking) has 40% icariin not 60%, but it's up from 150mg to 250mg per dose.

    So I got the PCT Assist this morning and here's what it looks like!

    30 Day Plan

    Diet-

    About 20 calories per pound of body weight, which is going to be around 3700 calories per day. Protein is going to be about 1.5 grams per lb. of body weight, equaling about 280 grams per day. I'll be consuming roughly 300-400 grams of carbs; I am pretty sensitive to carb intake so this is where I'll be tweaking the most depending on how much bodyfat I'm gaining. Fat is going to be high as well, around 135 grams per day. I won't be posting the macros every day, but will have a food log that includes my meals and the time of day it was eaten.


    Supplementation-

    CEL PCT Assist
    Creatine
    CL White Flood/Vasocharge (pre-workout)
    Animal Stak (multi-vitamin)
    Whey Protein
    12 Hour Protein Blend (casein, egg, whey)
    Xtend (pre-workout, intra, and post)


    Workout Split

    It's going to be a lot of strength work, with 5 sets for most workouts and rep ranges of 6 the first week, 5 the 2nd, 4 the 3rd, and lastly 3 reps.

    Monday- Legs/Calves
    Tuesday- Chest
    Wednesday- off
    Thursday- Back/Calves
    Friday- Shoulders/Traps
    Saturday- Arms
    Sunday- off

    Also, will be doing abs and cardio throughout the log but it will depend upon time and will vary.The cardio will be LISS and hopefully pretty limited, no HIIT for this one as I want to try and build muscle and strength.


    There it is, feel free to give me some critiques and advice if you see anything!

    Cool Day 2


    Not too much to note about PCT Assist yet, it is only the 2nd day. I can say that the dosing has been pretty simple, just 3 smaller sized capsules twice a day with a meal. I did set some new PR's for legs and now have a good idea of where I want to be at the end of this log. I just started lifting legs about a month ago so they are definitely my weak point and I hope to see a huge gain in strength and size by the end of this 30 days. Here is the nutrition and workout. Diet is looking really sloppy today but I hope to clean it up a little tomorrow.

    4:30- Creatine, Vasocharge
    5:00- (pre-workout) 2 servings of Xtend, 1 apple
    6:30- (post-workout) 1 serving of Xtend, 2 slices of angel food cake
    7:15- 1 cup of whole fat milk, 1 scoop of whey (30 grams)
    8:00- 2 McDonald's breakfast burritos, 1 hasbrown, PCT Assist
    2:00- Burger King Double BK stacker, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Large Fry, multi-vitamin
    6:30- slice of low fat cheese
    7:15- 8 oz. of boneless, skinless chicken breast, small spinach salad with fat free dressing, 1 cup of brown rice, PCT Assist
    9:00- 1 scoop of 12 hour protein

    Legs

    5 minute warm up on the stationary bike followed by some light weight BB squats

    Squats

    5 sets- 155 x 6, 175 x 6, 175 x 6, 175 x 6, (185 x 6 PR)

    Leg Press

    4 sets- 300 x 12, 390 x 6, 480 x 6, (480 x 6 PR)

    Single Leg Extension

    3 sets- 50 x 6, 70 x 6, 80 x 6

    Romanian Deadlift (I had no gloves/straps, disappointing my grip kept giving out)

    3 sets- 135 x 6, 145 x 6, 155 x 6

    Single Leg Kneeling Hamstring Curl

    3 sets- 50 x 6, 60 x 6, 50 x 6


    Tomorrow is Chest day, hope to hit it as hard as I did legs!

    The only one I know who seems to benefit from there is a friend who is training Olympic power lifting. He spends about $20 a day on the dollar menu... he's also pretty fat, but he can clean and jerk over 400lbs.

    Day 6


    This is the info update for yesterdays workout and meals. I'm starting to really notice the increase in libido. Feeling great in the gym! I have noticed a little increase in acne, hoping that it doesn't get too bad during this log. Might be worth it though if I achieve the goals I've set. I've been doing a fair amount of cardio, hope that's not going to hamper my strength and size gains too much; but I do want to be ready for the beach next month!

    Question for everyone, I have my bachelor party coming up at about the 27th day of this log and as we all know; that means craziness and alcohol consumption. I plan to stop taking PCT Assist during the b-party weekend, but is there anything else I should take as preventive measures? Or am I safe to just stop taking this for a few days and then resume after that weekend of fun? how safe is alcohol consumption while on PCT Assist?

    Day 7


    Edit: Can't post pics on here yet because of the 50 post rule, hopefully will be able to post pics at the end of the log for comparison.

    Here is the info for yesterday, its now been a week on PCT Assist. A couple of things to note has been a definite increase in libido and mood. I feel like I'm starting to get just a bit more edgy or quick tempered, no rage or anything like that just more of a agitated feeling. The acne doesn't seem to be getting too bad, just a pimple here and there; which is not unusual for me. Strength feels great, this next week I will be able to give feedback on this aspect as I'll be performing the same exercises but for less reps and with hopefully a significantly heavier weight! Also, want to note that supplementing PCT Assist into my routine has been about as simple as it gets; the pills are very easy take and there has been no side effects to note as far as nausea, bad breath, burps, etc.

    Pictures will be posted later on today! I forgot to do day one pics but the pictures on my last log is exactly how I looked when I started this thing, you can see them at: forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=115498411&pag e=7

    Day 9


    Strength went up on legs today! This is a probably a combination of PCT Assist and newb gains since I'm pretty new to lifting legs. I am starting to get some acne on one of my shoulders, haven't had a pimple there in years ....oh well though, if this log goes as planned and I get stronger it'll be worth it to me. I did my leg workout in the morning around 5 AM and then abs/cardio after work around 5 PM. Cardio was about 15 minutes of HIIT, 5 minutes of incline walking @ 15 and 3.5 speed; with about 10 minutes of fast paced walking at no incline to cool down. Feeling stoked for tomorrow, it's chest day! (my fave)

    Nutrition

    4:30- creatine, Vasocharge
    5:00- apple, 2 servings of Xtend
    6:30- 1 serving of Xtend, 20 oz. of Gatorade
    7:00- 2 scoops of whey in water
    8:00- PCT Assist, 3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites, 1 cup of oats
    1:00- 1 lb. of Publix Chinese Food (general tso chicken, bourbon chicken, and a small serving of lo mein noodles)
    6:15- 2 scoops of 12 hour protein in water
    8:00- PCT Assist, 8 oz. chicken, small salad with fat free dressing, 4 oz. of 75% reduced cheese, 2 slices of Arnold Health Nut bread

    I'll probably have a protein shake sometime in the late night if I get up to use the bathroom. Another bad day for lunch choice! grrrrrr, I'd be getting a lot closer to my goals if I could resist these lunch break temptations. Tomorrow I'm going to Quizno's, fo sho! Also, I've upped my protein levels for my post workout and pre-bedtime shakes to 2 scoops; up from 1 scoop. Feel free to give suggestions, I'm open to all ideas! If there's anything I could be eating at lunch time that doesn't require any kind of electricity? (no refrig., no microwave, etc.) besides tuna, already have some to use this week.

    I'm getting stronger! haha, seriously tho I moved more weight this week than the last in all movements. Libido has been a little above average, but nothing too out of the ordinary.

    Day 11


    No lifting today but I did get in a great session of abs/cardio right after work. I shouldn't be doing this much cardio because I'm trying to build muscle, but the diet has been so awful and I'm already in the gym all day so its very easy to just get in a quick 30 minutes on the treadmill.

    The acne has subsided somewhat but there's still more of a breakout than usual. I've also noticed a huge increase in aggression! At one point I really felt like quitting my job on the spot but wouldn't ever do that because my job is pretty sweet, raged on a fat guy that was honking on me when we were leaving the gym and rode up next to him yelling obscenities, and freaked out about our apt. maintenance workers who are terrible at their jobs. (whooooooo, had to do a lil venting) Anyways, other than that no bad side effects and I'm thinking this stuff is going to help me get stronger! Also, know that I might have to take it easy with any "stronger" products. Here is the nutrition!

    Nutrition

    7:45- PCT Assist, 5 oz. of lean London Broil steak, 2 slices of Arnold Health Nut bread
    11:15- 2 scoops of 12 hour protein
    1:45- Chinese (General Tso Chicken with pork fried rice, qty: too much!)
    4:30- creatine, 2 fat burners
    5:30 to 6:00- 2 scoops of 12 hour protein in water
    7:15- PCT Assist, Digiorno Flatbread Melt Steak and Fire Roasted Veggies (380 calories, 14 grams of fat, 19 grams of protein, 44 grams of carbs)
    9:30- 2 scoop of 12 hour protein

    Abs and Cardio

    15-20 minutes of ab and lower back work that included: side bends with a DB, back extensions, stiff legged deadlifts, crunches, weighted sit ups. Most of these moves were just for a set or two, more of a circuit workout and worked great.

    10 minutes of HIIT on the stationary bike
    20 minutes of sprint intervals on the treadmill
    5 minutes of jumping jacks and high jumps


    Tomorrow is back day and can't wait to log some more strength gains!

    Day 12


    I'm loving these strength gains baby! Every lift went up by at least 10 lbs. this morning. Today was a little bit calmer than the others as far as the aggression issues go! I trained back in the morning and then took the afternoon off from cardio, was pretty sore and tired; don't want to overtrain. My diet was a little bit better with Subway for lunch.

    Nutrition

    4:30- creatine, Superpump250
    5:00- 2 serving Xtend, apple
    6:30- 2 scoops of whey in water
    7:30- PCT Assist, 3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites, 2 slices of Arnold Health Nut bread
    11:15- packet of tuna
    1:00- Foot long Subway Sweet Onion Chicken Terryaki, bag of Sun Chips
    5:45- 1 scoop of whey in water
    7:15- PCT Assist, 6 oz. of salmon, 1 cup of pasta, small bowl of veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)
    9:30- 2 scoop of 12 hour protein

    Back

    5 minutes of stair stepper

    Deadlifts

    5 sets- 205 x 5, 215 x 5, 225 x 5, 225 x 5, 225 x 5

    Bent Over BB Rows

    4 sets- 135 x 5, 145 x 5, 150 x 5, 150 x 5

    Wide Grip Parallel Chinups

    3 sets- 5 1/2, 4 1/2, 3 1/2

    DB Rows

    2 sets- 50 x 12, 55 x 10

    Deadlifts were up by a lot, 20 lbs. since last week with the only difference being that I decreased reps from 6 to 5 which is how my plan is laid out for the month. Every week I'll be decreasing my reps by 1 but keeping the sets at the same level. Bent Over Rows were also up a lot, pretty sure these were definitely PR's!!!!

    Shoulders tomorrow!

    Day 14


    Went and saw The Hangover yesterday evening, f'n hilarious movie! I somehow managed to avoid the nachos and popcorn. Worked out shoulders/traps/arms around 3 o'clock and squeezed in 30 minutes of cardio right after.

    Unfortunately, the weight didn't go up this week for shoulders or arms; which is a little surprising since I took an extra day off for rest the day before and every other body part increased significantly. Still noticing the aggression affects and I'm having a lot of road rage recently! haha The acne has finally subsided a bit but the same blemishes are still around. Libido is about average, nothing out of the ordinary right now. And I'm getting really good sleep and waking up super energized in the mornings, very noticeable difference here since starting PCT Assist.

    I am a big fan of PCT assist. I consider it a must for pct, and coupled with a good natty test booster, you get real solid results.

    Day 15


    So.......I thought it was only fitting to post this picture because....there is a good chance that we are going to be going to Las Vegas on the weekend of The Olympia Competitions! We've been talking about going to Vegas for awhile now, never been, and after seeing The Hangover its really got us motivated to just go. And what better time than the Olympia! Stoked, really hope I can pull this one off.

    Back to the log, here is the nutrition for today; no workout. Aggression and short temper are the best two words for how I've been feeling. RAGE. hahaha, Diet was a little better today and I cooked up a bunch of chicken and rice to take for lunch tomorrow. Spent the whole day cooking and cleaning. Also, gave blood today at my church; that's what kept me from going to the gym today and doing some light cardio and abs.

    Nutrition

    7:30- creatine
    8:45- PCT Assist, can of tuna, 2 slices of California Pizza Kitchen BBQ Chicken Pizza (est. 600 calories, 25 grams of fat, 38 grams of protein, 100 grams of carbs
    12:45- 1 cup of pasta, 6 oz. of chicken
    3:45- 1 scoop of 12 hour protein
    7:45- PCT Assist, 6 oz. of chicken, 4 oz. of 75% reduced fat cheese, 1 cup of red beans and rice
    10:00- 1 scoop of 12 hour protein

    Tomorrow is Legs day and can't wait to hit em' hard!

    Day 17


    Sorry for the lack of updates, things have been a lil crazy for me these last couple of days. Here's yesterdays info.

    Yesterday I was able to get into the gym and workout! Worked chest pretty hard and then did some cardio afterward. My diet was also a lot better. My mood has been surprisingly up and I feel really energized. PCT Assist is definitely starting to kick in and give me the ALPHA feeling while in the gym. It's really cool.

    I took one scoop of Focus XT about 30 minutes before my workout and the energy aspect of this product is solid. Energy was long lasting, no crash, and very smooth w/no jittery effects. Didn't notice much as far as concentration and focus, will be sure to keep an eye on that one. The taste is great as well as the mix ability.

    Nutrition

    8:30- PCT Assist, 6 oz. of chicken, 1/2 cup of rice and beans
