Great Tasting Intra-Workout Recovery!
Intra workout products are one of the newest supplement categories on the market today. And with good reason: sipping one of these products while you train help keep you anabolic which is huge if you understand the catabolic nature of training.
iForce Nutrition Compete takes the intra-workout concept to new heights. Compete moves past the old formulas and sets a new standard for the industry. Compete uses only research backed, proven doses of exclusive amino acids, whey protein hydrolysate, and ingredients that will improve in-training focus. Have a question about intra=workout formulas? Compete is the answer!
How is Compete different? To begin with, Compete works by targeting the four keys to training/athletic performance:
- Mental Focus
- Training Performance
Let’s Look at Each One
You’re in the gym, hitting the weights hard. In this scenario, your body releases chemicals such as adrenaline that put us into our natural “fight or flight” frame of mind. This will dramatically reduce our in the gym performance. The goal here is to use these potent chemicals to our advantage.
This is one of the functions of Compete. We use a powerful adaptogen (Rhodiola Rosea) that can change the way your body responds to physical stress. This means improved workouts and greater benefits from those workouts.
What is an Adaptogen? They are compounds that “relax” the body in stressful circumstances, such as training. If you keep mental/physical stress within the right boundaries, we can train with 100% effort.
Additionally, Compete goes beyond dealing with stress and includes Vinpocetine, a potent alkaloid from the Perwinkle plant. Vinpocetine promotes energy, an increased brain blood flow and helps provide a positive mood.
Dehydration can derail a training session faster than most anything. To be able to train with 100% intensity, you need to stay hydrated. While we train we lose water which means we become dehydrated. With that in mind, did you know if you we lose only 20% of our body’s store of water, your in-training performance is reduced by as much as 50%! Water is good but it’s not enough – you need minerals, electrolytes, and phosphates to ensure hydration.
Compete contains the correct ratio of electrolytes, which allow brain communication with the rest of our body. The lack of electrolytes is what causes muscle cramps, which will quickly derail a training session. iForce Nutrition Compete prevents this by providing the electrolytes you need to train at full capacity.
Feeling good when you train is a great thing but it’s how well you perform that really matters. With that in mind performance improvement comes in part from manipulating various bodily functions. Compete takes care of this by using research proven doses of the some of the most effective ingredients available: two forms of L-Carnitine.
One of the functions of L-Carnitine is to drive fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are burned for fuel. This function lets your body create more energy, burn fat, and improves your in-training performance.
One version of Carnitine that Compete contains is known as L-Carnitine Fumarate, a very effective type of Carnitine. In fact it’s one of the more recent forms of L-Carnitine; it’s a combination of L-Carnitine & Fumaric acid with very potent results. Along with the effects listed above, this version of Carntine dramatically impacts production of ATP production - this means more usable energy to power you through your training.
Beyond energy needs, we also need to prevent catabolism since training is catabolic in nature. Fuel for training comes from both fat and muscle. While this is how our body is supposed to work, it’s ultimately counterproductive. To block catabolism from occurring it’s important to consume amino acids during our workout. Compete contains Whey Protein Hydrolysate to provide the aminos you need to stay in an anabolic environment while training.
To many individuals, the workout itself seems to be the key to progress and results – the more you train, the faster you see results. The truth is it’s our recovery that has the most impact. Look at it: if you train so hard you can’t walk right for 3 days, how much will your training suffer as a result? Results happen when you recover. With this is mind, Compete contains research proven dosages of the second form of Carnitine, which can greatly impact speed of recovery and help promote faster gains.
The second form is known as L-Carnitine L-Tartrate, a time tested version of Carnitine and very effective, popular compound. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate is able to instantly improve recovery and the correct dosing will not only allow you to train hard and intense, but will allow to be 100% for your next workout with less time in between!
Compete – the ultimate pre-workout supplement!
