I'll be using Perfect Carb in the following manner to test its capabilities in supplementing glycogen stores, augmenting intracellular water retention and maintaining blood glucose levels pre, during and after training.
1st Training Session: Post-workout Perfect Carb
2nd Training Session: Pre-workout Perfect Carb
3rd Training Session: Intra-Workout Perfect Carb
4th Training Session: Pre and Post-Workout Perfect Carb
5th Training Session: Intra and Post-Workout Perfect Carb
6th Training Session: Pre and Intra-Workout Perfect Carb
7th Training Session: Pre, Intra and Post-Workout Perfect Carb
After completing the various combinations of the above I'll post up a review of my thoughts of the best combination for maximal performance during training.
I normally use one scoop of whey protein diluted in water during training and finish it after training with a banana (until I get my purple wraath... )
For the duration of this log, I'll drop the banana and continue to use just my one scoop of protein. If there are multiple drinks (as in session 7), I'll spread the protein out amongst the drinks.
Current Training Program:
Monday: Legs and Calves
Wednesday: HIIT Cardio
Thursday: Shoulders and Traps.
Saturday: Biceps, Triceps and Forearms.
Great plan my friend. I've never supplemented carbs before, so this is new to me. I like the way your changing your times around....pre, post, & intra. I've been using intra only as far as WOs. But I've also been adding it to my morning lipotropic shake with breakfast. What about rest days....been supplementing once on those days also. Should I keep it on WO days only?
I've also added over 2lbs since starting Perfect Carb. That's the biggest weekly gain of my MMV2 cycle. My diet & WOs have been the same, only thing new is Perfect Carb, so hopefully it is clean weight.
Don't you love how well it mixes? No lumps.

1) Carbohydrate formulas such as Perfect Carb are extremely ergogenic around the training period, I'd rather not waste a single serving when it could be helping me push more weight or recover faster!
2) I have no issues with reaching my target calorie intake every day, the only other area I could see Perfect Carb having a role in one's supplement arsenal. It'd be an easy way to add additional calories to shakes, juices, milk, soups etc. much in the same way I'd add 'Maxijul' (maltodextrin-based energy supplement) to sick patients' food and drink on the ward, without the burden of chewing and extra gut motility.
I'm not reporting weights or measurements as this isn't the point of my log, I'd rather use this as an opportunity to help other trainees work out when's best to use Perfect Carb around the training period, how it works with other supplements, mixes, tastes etc.
I'll be posting up that video either tomorrow or the day after, comparing how it mixes in a shaker against regular WMS.

Day 5: Intra and Post Workout Perfect Carb
Reverse EZ Bar Curl (8-12 reps): 12,8,8,8 (EZ+22.5kg)
Parallel Bar Dips (6-8 reps): 6,6,6,6 (Bodyweight + 20kg)
Incline DB Curl (8-12 reps): 10,7,6,4 (14kg DBs)
Close Grip Bench Press (6-8 reps): 8,8,6,6 (70kg)
Straight Bar 21s (21 reps): 21,21,21,21 (35kg)
Cable Press-down (8-12 reps): 12,12,12,8 (35kg)
Chin-ups to failure
Bench Dips to failure
Thoughts on Training
Definitely my favourite combo so far Arms were absolutely swollen by the end of my session, vascularity was awesome and I maintained my strength all the way through the session, banging out 3 sets of chin-ups and dips even though I was sure I was through.
I wasn't really feeling the parallel bar dips I've always had this problem, whenever my hands are in a neutral grip position (hammer grip) I can never feel any strain in my triceps, but strangely enough whenever I do bench dips (pronated hand position) my triceps get a crazy pump!
I think I'll change bench dips to my primary tricep movement, it's just a pain loading plates onto your legs, I'll have to ask someone to help me.
I was pretty sure my arms couldn't get anymore pumped but after my postworkout shake it was virtually skin-bursting! Definitely take in at least a litre of water with the serving of Perfect Carb, I think this makes a big difference to the pump.
Day off tomorrow, so no perfect carb for me I'll post the next combination on monday, hopefully with a video.

I really like the idea of timing PC around WOs only. Makes sense to do so if my carb intake from diet is sufficient. More about timing my intake than increasing my intake.

Im seriously loving this carb mix, I add in Slin to mine with the bc+eaa's, "compiled by my good friend IBC" and my skin wants to rip. I cant compare it to WMS, ive never used it, but i will take your word UK..

WMS is good mate but a nightmare to mix at times (especially in a shaker), it clumps and tastes very chalky.
I'll put the two in the video so you can see what I mean. Cheers for the input mate and the reps.

Thoughts on Training:
Monday is leg day for me (unlike 99% of the lifters in my gym where it's chest day ) and I always dread completing this session because it's so physically draining. Today was all about the form, so the numbers are pretty low. However, I've not got much overall size in my outer quads (possibly due to years of pointing my toes outward and taking a wider stance to squat deeper) so I kept it close, tight and nailed those wheels today!
Took my first serving of Perfect Carb ~1 hour before training, it slipped down nicely as always I'm really liking how there's no bloat, gas or general gastric discomfort whatsoever, but I didn't feel much different in terms of 'energy' from a regular shake/meal.
The intra-workout shake is where Perfect Carb really shone. Last week I went slightly 'light-headed' (possible low blood glucose) during my legs session with just my whey-based drink. Today I felt awesome fully focused and I even banged out a few sets of pullups at the end of training, I felt that good.
No pump once I took my regular whey and banana combo post training and I felt uncomfortably full with the extra food in my gut. Extra water didn't remove the feeling at all, I had to walk it off.
As a side note...my patients are always complaining that Maxijul (maltodextrin) gives them 'upset stomachs' maybe I should get Perfect Carb on the ward!
Looking forward to the final combo, Pre, Intra and Post-workout Perfect Carb!

I've asked some of the CL reps as well for some Glycergrow samples to see how synergistic it is with cell volumisers...should be pumpilicious!

If its one thing you can count on its Rick putting in 100% on logs. Great job buiddy.
