    SizeOn is way overpriced for what you get, IMO. For the other two, it really comes down to what ingredients you prefer. Strive has bcaas and more hydrolysate than Compete, but Compete has more L-Carnitine in two different forms and is significantly cheaper per serving.

    I like Strive, Omega always brings out really good products it seems like. Between Ultima and Strive they really went above and beyond when these were released. Plus like us none proprietary blends. But Compete is also a solid formula you cant go wrong with either IMO.

    Strive's profile is very tough to beat, but Compete looks pretty solid as well and I'm sure tastes great as all iForce products do. Strive seems to always be sold out though

    Compete gets my vote. (Although I haven't tried strive) I just got some compete in the tangerine flavor and it tastes really good! I have only used it for the last two workouts so I can't comment on much else than the flavor. But the flavor alone makes it worth it lol

    carbs are pretty proven to help, however I prefer to get my carbs from food as opposed to from a drink, but thats a personal preference.

    It depends of the length of your training. If you're doing small workouts (<1h), you'll probably won't notice anything.
    If your workouts last 2-3h, it will help having steady blood sugar level, better muscle fullness and strength, better focus.



    to resume :

    Sizeon MP have some creatine and carbs that the other two products dont have.
    If you don't want these in your intra,
    strive have high quality peptopro and ibcaa, with a bit of LCLT. Doesn't taste that good compared to SizeON imo.
    Compete is the cheapest alternative, but also have the less complete ingredient profile.

    Strive is my go to for intraworkout products. I just started using Compete recently (only two workouts in so far), so not much to say result wise. As far as profile they are all good IMO.

    Also use Intrabolic quite regularly as well and think despite when it was introduced it still is on par with the newer products of similar type.

    Compete, I am not the smartest when it comes to the products, but I have liked the feel of Compete, and I prefer my carbs from food.

    Jeesh, I can eat all the food at Texas Roadhouse after my workouts of late.

    Someone suggest something that stops me from eating so much.

    Tough question, but I'd say Compete. I've never seen the worth of intraworkout​ BCAAs/protein in well-nourished individuals.

    I will throw my hat in the ring of iForce's Compete, as well - currently logging it on another message board and have had a positive experience thus far.

    Is there much to notice from an intraworkout product? It's effect, IMHO, is not normally acute - but Compete sits well with my stomach, tastes delicious, mixes well, and many of the ingredients are beneficial to the lifter. I like the inclusion of the carnitine salts, the hydration complex, and in recent times interesting studies regarding whey hydrolysate taken periworkout have surfaced.

    Stacked with Hemavol, I can really see the potential for some above-average workouts.

    A few SNS products wouldn't hurt either.

    not sure what people mean when they say that Compete has the most incomplete profile. It's complete and has adequate doses of LCLT, L-carnitine fumarate, B12, Vitamin C, rhodiola rosea, vinpocetine, and adequate doses of electrolytes (per 2 scoops, which is what most users use), and it's unique from most other intraworkout products that are out there now. There's only 1 gram of citrulline malate per 2 scoops but most people will take a pre-workout containing citrulline malate, or, if a user is partaking in a sport like soccer, or another endurance based activity, they won't want a massive pump; the vasodilation effect will be enough to enhance blood flow, but not the point that it would elicit a massive pump. It's very cost effective, and all the feedback on it has been awesome.

    Strive and Size on are definitely good products though, no question about that and not disrespecting them by any means; I like size on's profile (creatine, whey hydro and bcaa's, pterostilbene, etc.), just not a fan of all the carbs (tends to make me feel a bit bloated and I prefer eating carbs). And I do like Strive, just don't use it that often.
