    Compete with Kenpo


    Thanks to Vaughn for allowing me to log iForce Compete. Welcome to my log.

    Ordered the tangerine flavor and I'm glad I did because it is great tasting. Loved the profile and couldn't wait to use it as my intra-workout drink.

    Served up two scoops into 32 oz of water and hit my gym for some upper back work while sipping Compete::

    Dumbbell Bent Over Rows
    65x8x3

    One Arm Dumbbell Rows
    70x8x2
    75x8

    Dumbbell Shrugs
    100x10x3

    CG Lat Pulldown
    145x8x3

    Later in the morning I felt energized and ready for the day. I think I'll reduce to the recommended 1 scoop as the sweetness was a little high and my workouts don't really cause me to sweat.

    Final Review for Tangerine iForce Compete:

    Taste: tangerine flavor tasted like the old Tang drink I enjoyed as a kid. 1 scoop in 32 oz water tasted amazing.

    Mixing: mixed well and stayed that way. Since this is an intra I expected separation. None of that happened.

    Effectiveness: during a workout Compete was refreshing and thirst quenching. Endurance was high and DOMS was almost nonexistent.

    This is going into my everyday use stack. I really recommend this to my fellow lifters.

    This is a workout where Compete shines! Endurance during the sweat:

    Boxer's Workout

    Crunches, inchworms, speed bag timed and six 2 min rounds with the heavy bag. HR was up and cardio felt good! I use a heart rate monitor to make sure I'm in a good range and not in the "kill" range.

    Slight pump from the Compete? Hmmm.

    It tastes really good. Even with the amount of water I'm using. To me the flavor reminds me of Tang- The Drink of the Astronauts!

    Doms will be a thing of the past with Compete! I really noticed it when I ran out. No doms when taking Compete and sore as hell without.

    kenpo, taking a look at your workouts, do you just log your main lift, or is that really all that you do for that day? No accessory movements?

    Hi Dave. I only have one hour in the morning and my age has reduced endurance (53 this year). So alas, these are my only lifts for the day. Been thinking of adding a second workout after work though. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks CB! Remember as you grow older, you have nothing if you don't have your health! Keep lifting and being healthy!

    With this said, I'm still open to any and all suggestions for improving my workouts. Just have to keep them at about an hour.

    Absolutely have a sweet tooth! At 1 scoop per 32 oz water this stuff tastes great. Noticed that DOMS is really low the day after. So far so good.
