    LiveToLift wants to lose body fat with PLCAR (Sponsored Log)


    First thing I want to do is thank SNS for the opportunity to log PLCAR. I have never used an SNS product before this one so I'm eager to see what this can do for me.

    Goal= I would like to use PLCAR to help maintain my low body fat percentage while I continue my bulk. I have been on a bulk for what seems to be over a year now, as I started lifting at only 140 lbs about a year and a half ago. I have always had a small build and have set out to get huge! As the time goes by a problem I have noticed is that I am constantly adding on just a little bit of pudge to my mid, which makes it near impossible to carve out my abdominal section. As anyone knows that builds, abs give you that well rounded lifter look and i will not settle for anything else! I am not sure if it is just a bit of water weight that I pick up throughout the day that makes me have this "pudge" by night time, but either way It needs to stop! Don't get me wrong I am by no means fat, I just would love to continue to take in large amounts of calories to get to my target weight of 185 without putting on that pudge, and this is where PLCAR comes into play! :-) Realistically the outcome I would like to get from this product during the month that the bottle will last is gain 3 pounds of lean muscle while shaping up my abs.

    Diet= My diet is very strict, although I do from time to time get stuck eating a cheat meal as I work a lot and sometimes have near no choice. I usually start the day with a protein shake, oatmeal with peanut butter and a few eggs whites. Then through out the day I will have tuna fish, chicken breasts, cottage cheese, bagels with light cream cheese, pb and J sandwiches, Turkey or chicken deli meat on wheat, yogurt and some low fat milk.

    Current supplements=
    Whey protein
    Creatine
    BCAA's
    Arginine
    PLCAR :-)
    Will add Tropinol when I receive it, to help get to that 3 lb goal (also sponsored)
    Fish oil
    Multi V

    I hope this log will help anyone who is wanting the same results from a product like this! Well here goes nothing, hope this product does what it says it will do! Thank you again SNS, and this is my first log of a product so if anyone has any suggestions on what you would like included, don't hesitate to ask or critic!

    Alright just through some of my own analysis and testing, I will continue to take 2 caps pre-workout and another cap spaced about 6 hours after. If I do not feel any effects after first week I will up the second dose to 2 caps and go from there.

    Great start! Plcar is great stuff. I take between .5-1g pre work out and another before I go to work.

    Good to hear man! Can't find many write ups on it or anything so feed back from people that have used it will definitely be beneficial for me! Did you take it with meals or on an empty stomach?

    Alright.....
    Very happy to update today! Day 3 of PLCAR was a success, probably too early to say that it was because of this supplement but in any case I had an amazing back and light bicep workout. Weighed in at 167 which was also my starting weight, yet I felt very lean this morning even after eating like crazy all weekend.

    Deadlifts (Just started to incorporate last week so very light :-))
    1X8 165
    1X8 185
    2X6 195

    Lat pulldown
    1X10 120
    1X9 140
    1X8 160
    1X6 165

    Narrow Pull-ups(no weight)
    2X8
    1X7

    Seated Row machine ( Not entirely sure how to explain this machine but it has bars you hold onto and I do one side at a time
    2x8 115 ( right arm followed by left)
    1X7 125

    EZ bar curl
    2X8 85
    1X8 90

    Reverse curl
    1X8 70
    1X8 60

    Hammers
    2X8 45

    Was waiting way less time between sets then normal and felt like I was on a stimulant in the gym, alpha male feeling that I rarely get in the morning! As I said too early to say whether it was from the supplement but in any case I love the feeling I had.

    The science write-up has been minimal. There's a great read done by Andy(PinchTheBear, works for DS) on the carnitines. I'll link ya.
    http://broscience.com/broscience-com-approved-articles/435-clarifying-carnitines.html


    A
    s in the other thread, 1g pre-workout is my favorite. I also like 500mg before I study as it helps limit stress and puts me into an elevated mood.

    Not to hate on your multivitamin, but there are much better things for your money. I'd look into Orange Triad as it's a great product. I also look into Dr. Feel Good as SAN is having a b1g1 sale on their own website. Sann.net... You can pick up 2 DFG for $46, which is a steal for the formula. I'd recommend either of those before I'd suggest you stay with Armor V...


    Edit: I thought it said Armor V not Multi V.

    My bad haha



    Edit #2: I take it on an empty stomach about 30 mins prior to working out. A lot of the time I mix up my pre-workout and take my pre-workout pills while drinking my pre-workout about 25-30 mins before and then leave for the gym...

    Very good link that is interesting! I may consider purchasing some to use during my cycle that will start immediately after this log, assuming the positive outcomes continue that is. You wouldn't see any problem cycling with the product would you? Thank you for your help and yea i do notice that it keeps me motivated to do tasks.

    I personally dont. My science side of supplements isnt as extensive as cy's(mr cooper) so i'll get him to post about it.

    What you looking at running?

    AI has a black friday sale, and I would grab cycle support from them since its only $25 and its a great formulation.

    My lifting is usually done before work which means I go about 1030 am so It would be hard to do the 1 in the am. I tell you what after what I experienced today in the gym it would be hard to get me to budge off of taking two at about 945-10 am then hitting gym 45 later! That feeling was amazing, literally felt like I needed near no rest between sets! Did start to get a stomach ache late in the day though, almost as if I was really hungry even though I was eating like a pig all day! Hope that doesn't continue. Do you get any feedback about people getting stomach aches? This is the second time, may just have a bug or something though.

    Another good workout today! Thought that I would be dragging ass today in the gym as deadlifts tore me up from yesterday. Woke up with that ache that almost makes you take a day off the gym. Yet I took my morning dose at 10 and hit the gym hard from 1045-1145ish. Shoulder workout today, surprisingly a lot of my ache had gone away by my first set today. Even hit a personal best on shrugs.

    DB press
    2X65 8
    1X70 7

    Shrugs
    1X8 215
    1X8 255
    1X8 285
    2X5 305 PR (could usually only get about 3)

    Chin raises (straight bar)
    1X10 90
    2X8 100

    Seated DB Cuban press (new workout for me really burns shoulders)
    1X10 30
    2X8 35

    Side raises
    2X10 35
    1X6 40

    Finished with a 15 minute ab burn on abcoaster and weighted sit ups

    Energy once again was up and was only waiting about a minute 30 between sets

    Yea it did feel real good, The most I've done 305 was 1X3 to be able to do it 2x5 with ease was very nice. Not on cycle made it even sweeter, been reading this stuff doesn't give some people an energy boost, but i seem to feel like I'm on a preworkout while on it. Either way I like what it's doins so far, really leaning out I've noticed too. Eating like a hog and stomach is staying pretty tight.

Either way I like what it's doins so far, really leaning out I've noticed too. Eating like a hog and stomach is staying pretty tight.
    Sounds like its working really well for you so far. Glad its providing you with such a good boost.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Alright just took a dose and have a lot of stuff to do today, wanted to put the mental ease claim to the test as I can't seem to get motivated today. Have worked over two weeks straight and get a few days off now so this being my first day off its hard to get to it. Fiance's bday celebration tonight and Turkey day tomorrow so my next gym day will be Friday, and it will be leg day which I can always use an extra boost in so it will be a good test for PLCAR. Will update if I have any benefit using on an off day.
