Just thought I'd pop in again and say that the face I bought another tub should make it clear I enjoy using Compete. Should probably start a new thread with this review but o well...post this in a comprehensive Compete Thread if you have one/want to.
First off I will say I was kinda skeptical about buying Compete. When I first say the formula I thought it sounded pretty interesting and liked its overall formula, but the reviews made me a little cynical. People were acting like 2 scoops of this stuff made them invincible in the gym and I figured strong placebo and bro-reviews were going on. O well bought some anyway.
Taste: Once again I wasn't absolutely floored by the Tangerine. While it is very refreshing and one of the better tasting products I have tried it had a little "bite" to it. This was once again probably just because of my overly high expectations due to the reviews and the fact every IForce product I have tried tastes amazing. I still prefer LD Hemavol to this, but never got tired of the flavor. Grabbed a Lemon Drop tub a couple weeks ago and enjoy that flavor more than tangerine. Still like Hemavol better but really like it nonetheless. Honestly mixing half and half of Tangerine and Lemon Drop is even better IMO.
Effects: Nothing incredible here. I didn't feel compete gave me any supreme endurance throughout my workouts. Conditioning appeared easier but nothing over the top. The biggest surprise was the mental effects and the overall recovery over the month. While acute effects weren't as impressive for me, over the long haul it has been effective. Noticed some increased mental clarity when taking a serving pre and one intra. DOMS have also been far from excessive despite 2g ArA dosage this month (normally ArA demolished me).
Overall: While I don't think it is the most amazing thing ever, it is very solid and the price is extremely affordable for what you get (probably worth it just for the Carnitine blend). Will definitely keep this in a constant rotation and use and felt effects got better over time.
Side note: 3-4 scoops Protocol pre plus 1-2 servings Compete (some with Protocol most during workout) has kicked endurance and workout capacity into over drive. Really good combo that I plan to continue using for the next several months.
Glad to toss out reviews and should probably just start a IForce Review thread as this was originally only Hemavol feedback. I enjoy throwing out reviews for companies with good products that I recommend to others in the gym.
Finally posted a review for Hemavol in the review section of AM. Will hopefully get around to Compete and Protean reviews in the near future (these tubs of Compete seem to be never-ending...).
Edit: posted up a compete review as well.
Have u guys heard about one man trash is another man treasure well one of my friends bought hemavol and he said he got and allergic reaction so he gave it to me I never tried it and hooked a week later u guys came out with the sick promo perfect timing
I was just wondering if u guys had any idea what he could of reacted to he got the same thing from bsn nitrix the only ingredient I found in both product is citrulline
I'll tell him about citrulline and let him do the investigation I ask since he doesn't have an account
Just got my hemavol package exited about that and the straps are sick thanks
hemavol is awesome. if you want a crazy workout try this
2 caps Anabeta + Hemavol + a stim pre workout of your choice + Agmatine + beta alanine...ive tried this a few times and you wont want to go to the gym without doing this again! ive also taken hemavol solo many times and its GREAT for a stim break. love the stuff
