    The Sweet Taste of Perfection...UKStrength Logs LG Sciences Perfect Carb (TM)


    Hola!

    After being absent for 2 weeks whilst soaking up the sun on holiday, I'm back with another log for you guys to get stuck into.

    This time I've been very kindly sponsored by LG Sciences to give my thoughts on PERFECT CARB (TM)! and I'd like to extend my gratitude to the whole of the LG team for choosing me as a tester.


    The Product: What is Perfect Carb (TM)?


    (Taken from www.lgsciences.com - manufactures high quality anabolic prohormone bodybuilding supplements like Methyl 1-D, Masterdrol and Formadrol)

    "Carbohydrates are an important source of anabolism. Building muscle requires proper muscle glycogen which must be replenished at the right time and in the proper ratios, without causing fat storage! Without the proper carbohydrates, in the right amounts, the calories from those carbs could end up on your waist, not in your muscles.

    Perfect Carb(TM) is the ultimate source for anyone wishing to add key muscle building glycogen while controlling insulin and fat storage. It is made up of three of the best known carbohydrate sources in the proper ratio to replenish muscle stores. First is pure pharmaceutical grade DEXTROSE, which immediately slams glycogen into your muscles when you need it most. Only enough dextrose is in the product to recharge muscle stores without overloading the endocrine system and causing fat gain. Second, MALTODEXTRIN is an intermediate glucose converting sugar that provides the second bump in available energy without spiking insulin, giving the second wave of glycogen raw materials. Finally, Perfect Carb contains WAXY MAIZE starch, which is a slower digesting carbohydrate that helps pull water and nutrients into the cell, making cell volume increase. It also partially converts to glucose at a slower rate, giving sustained energy.

    Perfect Carb is unflavored, making it perfect to add to your post workout shake, or as an additional carb source for any application where additional glycogen is required."

    How Perfect Carb will be logged:


    I've used various carbohydrate supplements in the past to help enhance my training, including: Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Waxy Maize Starch (WMS), Lucozade Powder (Dextrose with electrolytes) and carbohydrate gels.

    I fully believe that carbohydrates, in the correct quantities, play a crucial role in getting the most out of my training sessions.

    Currently I'm not using any carbohydrate powders/supplements, just a ripe banana after training

    The Protocol:


    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.

    The Tester: Who is UKStrength?

    Current Goals: Lean out further before my next DS cycle (E-stane and Dermacrine) and improve my lifting strength.

    Long Term Goals: Compete in my first bodybuilding competition in the UKBBF in 2012 (Classic Bodybuilding Category).

    Starting Stats:

    Current weight: 170lb
    Current Height: 5ft 9in
    Body fat: 9%

    Diet:


    I'm current riding at 2400-2500kcal/day (maintaining), I plan to stay at roughly this amount of calories for the next couple of weeks until I start my lean bulk on E-Stane.

    My diet consists of: High protein (40% ~250g/day) moderate carbohydrate (30-40%) and moderate/low fat intake (20-30%), I've found this works best for me.

    Supplementation:

    Daily Multivitamin
    4g of high EPA/DHA content fish oil.
    Whey protein concentrate
    Creatine Monohydrate
    ZMA

    Current Training Program:

    Monday: Legs and Calves
    Tuesday: Chest
    Wednesday: HIIT Cardio
    Thursday: Shoulders and Traps.
    Friday: Back
    Saturday: Biceps, Triceps and Forearms.
    Sunday: OFF

    I've modified my program from my last log, whilst it's still pretty high volume I've thrown in a full 'arm' day to try and bring them up as they are lagging quite a bit.

    I won't be posting up pictures for this log, as I feel the final review of the product wouldn't benefit from it. For those who followed my last log: UKStrength is slicing up some British Beef with IGF-2!. You can find pictures of me there.

    Oh! There must be a hot girl to start this log rolling, so today Isabel Lucas gets my pick...HOT.

    Day 1: Post Workout Perfect Carb

    First Impressions:


    After receiving my Perfect Carb today from her Majesty's finest postlads, I decided to trial it today with my training session.

    Packaging:


    I've not used any LG products at all in the past so I was keen to see how they fared against other companies. I was very surprised upon unscrewing my tub of Perfect Carb to not be greeted with the 'Sealed For Your Protection' cover that's usually present on most protein powders, manufacturing fault? Most probably.

    Mixability:

    I used a blender for my first serving of Perfect Carb as I've got a new water bottle coming in the post, needless to say it mixed up perfectly with no arm ache

    Having used WMS in the past, I know how much vigorous shaking it normally
    takes to completely dissolve in solution. After I receive my bottle, I'll post up a video to show how well it dissolves in solution and after resting.

    Taste:


    I mixed up the Perfect Carb with my Whey protein (which has a strong raspberry taste), the dextrose made the drink slightly sweeter but not sickly at all. I could definitely taste the slightly 'chalky' taste of the WMS, however it wasn't unpleasant at all and definitely not as bad as straight WMS.

    Texture


    Adding the Perfect Carb to my post workout drink gave it a 'silkier' texture, I personally found it very pleasant to drink.

    Side Effects

    None at all. As with any WMS product, always drink plenty of water with it and there shouldn't be any stomach issues. I personally like to drink ~1L with a 30g serving of WMS and seems to prevent any GI distress.

    Training: Chest

    Dumbell Incline Press: 10,9,6,6 (30kg DBs)
    Dumbell Incline Flies: 8,8,8,8 (20kg DBs)
    Dumbell Flat Press: 7,6,6,5 (30kg DBs)
    Gironda Dips: 6,6,6,6 (Bodyweight only)
    Dumbell Pullover 9,9,9,9 (30kg DB)

    Thoughts on Training:

    Whilst sore from my intense leg session yesterday (nothing better than a good legs session to reignite the training fire!) I was pretty fired up for the chest session today. I haven't lost any strength over the last two weeks (holiday) so I was pleased, and with the addition of the gironda dips my chest was PUMPED by the end of the session.

    Thoughts on Supplementation Protocol

    Took my perfect carb and BOOM!, I forgot how intense and fast the volumising effect of WMS is! Now I don't use any nitric oxide products at all, but I had a serious pump going on as I left the gym that lasted for ages.

    The drink went down smoothly and I didn't feel bloated at all as I left the gym, just swole

    Perfect Carb + Glycerol+ Creatine? could be a match made in heaven

    Supplements that reach FDA 'pharmacuetical grade' have to be 99% pure, this makes the dextrose more bioavailable and therefore more effective than standard grade dextrose.

    Got that right, it's the most badass container in my kitchen right now

    Dude, sugar is sugar. I doubt you will find 83% pure dextrose. Not being a wiseass. I just found it funny they used that term about sugar.

    Looks like an awesome product. I might have to grab a tub of it.

    I'm going to check out PowerFULL (new formula) this time around, that way I can make a final call on which one to use as a staple. I'll be looking for the same effects I got from IGF-2 though

    Day 2: Pre-Workout Perfect Carb

    Training: HIIT Cardio

    I had some pain in my shins so left out the jump rope for today...

    Circuit: Performed the following 10 times, rested 30 secs between each circuit.

    10 explosive push ups
    10 pull-ups
    10 squat jumps
    10 body-weight dips

    Thoughts on Training:

    I took the serving of Perfect Carb with my whey ~30 minutes before training, slipped down nicely and didn't sit in my stomach at all. Training intensity was pretty high, although I didn't perform any better than just having my normal pre-workout meal.

    Had a nice pump going by the end of the workout but it didn't last as well as it did last session with the Perfect Carb in my post workout shake.

    Training: Shoulders and Traps

    Power Clean and Press (4 x 6-8 reps): 6,6,6,6 (60kg)
    Upright Rows (4 x 8-12reps): 12,12,12,12 (EZ bar + 35kg)
    Incline Bench Seated DB lateral raise (4 x 6-8 reps): 8,8,8,8 (12kg DBs)
    Barbell Shrug (4 x 6-8 reps): 6,6,6,6 (140kg)

    DB Lateral Holds (4 x 45 sec hold): 45,45,45,45 (3.5kg DBs)

    Thoughts on Training

    Great session today! Loving the reintroduction of the power cleans, gets the whole shoulder girdle and upper back warmed up like no other!

    Energy was good during training with the Perfect Carb, however I didn't get as good a pump or feel as 'invigorated' as I did when I dosed it after training.

    It'll be interesting to see how the combination of pre and post fares!

    As soon as I get my new sports bottle in the post I'll have that video up of how Perfect Carb mixes in a bottle.

    I'm trying to be systematic with this log, doing every combination possible with Perfect Carb, before making my final call on the best supplementation protocol.

    It's a solid product so far, love the fact that it absorbs so fast, no bloatage

    Oh and the pics...well, who wants to look at text all the time!

    Day 4: Pre and Post Workout Perfect Carb

    Still no new water bottle yet...getting annoyed at Amazon!

    Training: Back

    Deadlift (6-8 reps): 6,6,6,6 (140kg)
    Barbell Row (6-8 reps): 7,7,7,7 (70kg)
    1-arm DB Row (8-12): 11,11,11,11 (34kg DB)
    Close Grip Cable Pulldown (10-12 reps): 10,10,10,10 (70kg)
    Pullup Variations to Failure: 5 reps (pronated grip), 2 reps (supinated grip), 1 rep (neutral grip)

    Thoughts on Training:

    I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about this workout. I've not hit heavy deads for a few weeks, so it was a shock to the system to load that bar up! I took my perfect carb ~30min prior to training and it settled in the gut nicely

    Pump was ok during training (just sipped on my whey), but I didn't seem to have as much energy as I did last session with the Perfect Carb intra-workout...

    As soon as that last pullup was done I slammed my post workout shake, the pump was nothing short of awesome Regardless of when else you use it, Perfect Carb seems to be superb post-workout for filling up those muscles fast! Looking forward to the next combination
