    Protocol 2.0 > Compete ...


    I took Compete before and during my work outs for 2 months, great supplement.

    My first week in on Protocol 2.0 drink some before and during and my workouts are a lot easier, this product is great.


    2 scoops of Compete.

    4 scoops of Protocol.

    both great products but Protocol got me feeling extra good,

    Thanks for the love which I use compete as well but use it for more cardio sessions and PROTOCOL for lifting. Wait till Cherry Bomb is out, now that will be explosive

    I think both can be implemented in any training regimen. Both are at the top of their classes imo.

    In for Cherry Bomb Protocol!

    Have used both and have both in my stash. Do enjoy Protocol more, but Compete is still a solid option. Protocol just fits with my needs perfectly.

    It doesn't take long for Protocol to prove it's worth, especially at 4 scoops. Part of the reason why we swapped COP for beta-alanine... BA's impact on endurance would take weeks; COP's takes days, if it isn't noticeable immediately.

    Absolutely love the feedback brother. Agreed with Mike, Protocol really shines quickly at 4 scoops.


    Glad it's helping you

    wouldn't necessarily say protocol v2 > compete. My recovery has never been better since I've been using compete, and i like protocol's profile (I'm not knocking it by any means). I'd say both have benefits and both can be used

    Protocol gets me, because cherry is my all time, favorite flavor of everything haha. Aside from that, I feel they are very equal for what they are designed to do, but very different at the same time. Protocol has the leucine which I like and COP is a solid addition but most people use pre's and get this anyways, regardless though, great addition. Compete has a broader spectrum of amino's as it contains whey protein hydrolysate and also has CM for endurance and electrolytes which is something I am looking for. Personally, they can both be used depending on what type of workout you are doing.

    Heres a little secret. I use them both. Both are awesome. I had a sample of the fruit punch slam and to me the taste was really good. Protocol is our baby but compete is an awesome product as well. I say they both win for bringing bad as products to the industry

    I was just surprised of the instant endurance I felt in my workout today compared to Compete. Love both products and they serve different purposes with Compete more so a recovery product but man I love Protocol Pre and during a lot .

    Yeah the cop is awesome. Even I during beta testing was surprised by how much of a difference COP really makes. At 2 servings/2g of COP the results were instant. I know Mike is going to beat me up for this but at the time of beta testing I was doing crossfit so I was able to gauge it from a lifting and endurance aspect.

    I haven't tried either product. Three reviews from non-affiliated customers who took both products and all three preferred Protocol.

    Based on feedback it looks like if I buy one it looks like my money is going to Genomyx.

    If it were easy, or we had a rep across the pond, you know we'd hook it up with a few samples. And weiner pics.

    I heard that Reggie's a magic man, so he might be able to turn the SSv2 samples we sent him into Protocol ones. Don't know... beats sending baggies of orange powder over, though. I believe that would create some kind of international incident.

    But yes, Protocol tastes amazing. I've tried Compete as well and while the profile is good, the taste of and improved endurance with Protocol is amazing.

    Well, technically it was more of a LOC joke. I actually had to use our local community college's website to even find that call number. I was hoping you'd appreciate the time and effort I put into that...

    It's logical since the only thing in compete is carnitine and protocol have it with solid dosage of agmatine, leucine, and COP (too much of it...)

    Just curious if you had a digestive issue because of the dosage... We've (and based on the feedback of many others) found that 2g pre-WO is the proverbial "sweet spot".

    Thanks Natty. The only difference is that we replaced the beta alanine with Creatinol-O-Phosphate at 1g per serving due to the fact that we have a lot of consumers using 2 servings throughout the day. Still 60 servings.

    Same here. I find 2g per serving to be quite impressive. Ive never experimented with anything over 2g though to be honest.

    I like the upgrade....COP has become an everyday supplement for me

    It is pretty amazing. Hadn't played around with COP dosing before using Protocol on a consistent basis and I must say I have been more than impressed.

    I used to take 4 scoops daily of the OG protocol, i still haven't tried the new one but I don't think I could take that much.

    If you decide to give the new one a try, start off slow, even if you're sacrificing the other ingredients in the short term... half scoop, full scoop, etc., until you reach 2 scoops or 4 scoops, depending on how you'd like to dose it.

    Over a week's time, you should be fully acclimated to it and you'd be ready to roll. When I was experimenting with COP dosages, I got as high as 3.5g/pre-WO without issue, but I increased by 500mg every two to three days.
