  1. Not just endurance but focus too. So far it seems like a pretty well balanced formula and a great complement to Hemavol.

    Yeah, maybe "hurt" is too strong a word. "Fullness" is probably more appropriate! Jeans are fitting a bit more snugly, but in the thighs!

  4. Spent a lot of time on shoulders and lats/back today. Had a sick pump and really helped enhance the "V" shape of my upper body.

    Pullups / Bosu pushups:
    15/15, 13/15, 12/15
    Hex rows:
    205/10,9,8,8,7
    Ripcord rows:
    65/10,9,8,8,7
    Meadows rows:
    70/7,7,6
    Roc-it mid rows:
    260/8,7,6

    I don't think you need me to tell you that Hemavol + arm workouts = sick pumps.

    enhancing the 'v' look is something i have been working on for a long time...it's a lot harder for us big guys than the naturally slim guys, at least for me, lol.

  6. Yeah, I've got some work around the waist to do, but once i start my cut I should have a pretty good foundation underneath that come out. Some chest separation would be good but I know it's only like 5 lbs away.

    Goal is 185/188 and/or 11-12% by June 15th. No particular reason other than that's my wedding day and is the only thing I'm really looking forward to. It's as good a day to shoot for as any!

    Would be nice to recomp at current weight and get to 11%, but 185 is my "fighting weight," best I've looked/felt. Thanks to all for the support!

  17. Gotta admit today was not my best workout. Just felt lethargic all day; didn't sleep particularly well last night and I think that carried over today.

    Rack pulls: 250/5,5,4, 200/8
    Barbell shoulder raises: 70/8,8,7
    Single arm barbell rows: 70/7,7,6
    Farmers walks: 70/2 trips across gym x 2

    Not much of a workout, but I figured something today was better than nothing. Mentally wiped from paper load at work and a bad night's sleep. Hopefully tomorrow's better.

  21. Last couple days I've been unusually fatigued. Came home yesterday and slept for a few hours and still haven't been getting good sleep at night. Figured its better to take a bit of a break and then I can finish strong this weekend. I have off from work next week so I should be able to recharge my batteries and get back on the horse!

  24. Spent today focusing on some shoulder work. Took the last few days off due to lethargy and some poor sleep, maybe even some stress from paper load at work. All that's taken care of and I have a week off coming up, so back at it!

    Meadows rows:
    70/10,9,8,8,7
    Hex bar shrugs:
    205/10
    245/10,9,9,8,7
    Farmer's walks:
    70/ 2 trips across gym
    Ripcord rows:
    65/10,9,8,7

    Still feeling pumped and energized! 3 or four more workouts left in the log I believe. Dosing is at 2 scoops Hemavol preworkout. Good way to blow up!

  26. Today I hit a number I never thought I would: 610. Highest amount I've ever moved in a session and it felt damn good!

    Plate loaded squat press:
    360/10 80 sec rest
    450/10 100 sec rest
    540/10 120 sec rest
    610/6 120 sec rest
    540/8 120 sec rest
    450/10

    Ground base squat
    270/6
    320/5
    360/4 (PR)
    320/4

    Goblet squats
    70/10,9,8

    Monday will probably be my last day for the log because I think tomorrow will be a rest day, and I have the Sabres/Penguins game in the afternoon. It's been a heck of a run with great products, and I'll sum up my experiences with a final review very soon!

  36. Last workout of the log:

    Flying pushups/Bosu pushup set:
    15/15, 13/10, 10/8 80 sec rest
    --right off the bat, arms and chest got so swollen and engorged that I couldn't do more reps. Not fatigue or muscle exhaustion, but it became very difficult to bend and move!
    Hex bar rows:
    225/10,9,8,8,7
    --heaviest weight and reps for this exercise yet
    Hammer bench:
    270/6, 360/5, 360/3, 320,5
    Roc-it lat pulldowns:
    230/12,11,10

    The pic in the previous post was after my workout. Taking a self-pic like that doesn't do justice to the fullness and wideness of my torso after today. Prominent long veins in the biceps and forearms.

    Final review will be posted in the second post in this thread. Thanks to I-Force for making great products and allowing me to log Hemavol and Compete for them!

    BTW: there is a current special where the two are on sale for a VERY low price. This log was probably their way of showing people what to expect using the two. Google is your friend.

  39. Here ya go though:

    Final review:

    AWESOME products both on their own and used together.

    Here's what I was asked to comment on:
    --pumps:
    Insane. Be sure to properly hydrate and the GMS in Hemavol will work its wonders. One pump is good, I've used 1.5 and 2 throughout the log. 1.5 scoops Hemavol and 2 scoops Compete would run out at close to the same time.
    --endurance:
    Was able to punish myself for grueling sessions of High-Low/Front-Back training, and even for extended traditional sessions of upper-only, legs-only, or total body. Never felt like I couldn't do what I wanted to do in the gym. Only disappointing workouts I had were due to fatigue/stress from my job; nothing that can be blamed on the products.
    --rest between sets:
    Most workouts were kept to 40 seconds between sets for arm workouts, 60-80 for chest/back, 80-120 sec for high volume/weight leg exercises. Heart rate was still elevated at these intervals, but some longer rest periods were necessary due to the blood pump in the exercised areas.
    --flavor:
    Watermelon Hemavol>Lemon. I've used both before and the lemon actually gave me headaches. Watermelon is better by default, but could be a tad stronger.
    Tangerine Compete = THE BEST TASTING SUPP EVER.
    --recovery:
    Probably could have worked out 4/5 times a week or more consecutive days, but the punishment I put myself through demanded some rest. Did do cardio on off days, so even after a leg day previous, still was able to hit the elliptical.
    --DOMs:
    NEVER FELT THEM. I don't know how this could be; I pushed myself as hard as I ever did, and I can't figure what exactly in either formula reduced DOMs to the point of non-existence.

    BOTTOM LINE:
    If you have the means, run this stack. It is versatile and effective. Hemavol especially is good on its own and also stacks well with other formulas if you're so inclined. Compete is just awesome; intra, pre, post, in a water jug throughout the day: this needs to be in you!
    BOARD TYRANT

  40. review made me want to try it.....my son was asking me for advice on supps. i think i will recommend this combo!!!


    he is a noob, this looks like a good starter kit!!!
