What is Your Competition?
We all compete with something. Fellow athletes, bodybuilders, or rival teams. A good-natured bet with your best friend. Even striving to push your own boundaries or beating the scale and shedding excess pounds counts as competition. With COMPETE, your body is primed and ready to crush any opposition you may face. You will no longer be wasting your time with workouts that don’t pay off because issues like your own natural stress levels or dehydration hold you back. The powerful combination of intra-workout aminos, stress-regulating compounds, and electrolytes will not only have you feeling good and ready to go, but it will help push your body to new performance heights.
Accept No Less
iFORCE Nutrition COMPETE is hands-down the most complete intra-workout supplement on the market. No other nutritional powder comes close to offering the same level of performance enhancement, recovery bolstering, mental focusing, and hydration assistance all at the same time. COMPETE fuels your body and mind to accomplish your goals and push towards new personal bests, no matter what level of athlete you are.
While some products are geared solely towards making you feel super amazing during your workout, COMPETE actually delivers the ability to act on the performance enhancement it provides. Think about it: You can get buzzed and pumped all you want, but if your body is lacking the means to make effective use of all that extra energy, you won’t be able to reap any extra benefits from it. This is why COMPETE provides clinical doses of the most impressive amino acids known to the athletic world. Your body will have all it needs to operate at maximum efficiency, from the moment your workout begins and all throughout your recovery.
L-carnitine is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) which is naturally produced within the body. It works by helping the body produce energy, and it is important for a number of bodily processes including muscle movement, cardiovascular function, and brain health. Your dietary fats are more efficiently processed with L-carnitine, as it helps to carry fats (especially long-chain fatty acids) into the mitochondria of cells. Your cells then oxidize those fats and produce adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP. ATP is a coenzyme so essential to powering the body that it has been called “the energy currency of life” by biologists. It not only fuels your body during intense workout sessions, but it’s constantly on the job, keeping your metabolism up and your whole body moving as it should. In addition to ATP production, studies show that L-carnitine also helps fight fatigue during workouts due to a reduction in lactic acid buildup and a natural increase in blood flow to tiring muscles.
With iFORCE Nutrition COMPETE, you won’t just get all the amazing benefits of simple L-carnitine alone. Instead, COMPETE provides you with an even more effective and bioavailable form of this incredible amino acid: L-carnitine fumarate. L-carnitine fumarate is the scientifically-proven way to simultaneously fuel and protect your muscle cells with the combination of simple L-carnitine and Fumaric acid. Fumaric acid boosts your ATP building capabilities and works perfectly alongside L-carnitine. The end result is a one-two punch for your energy production, giving you a metabolic powerhouse to operate with. Not only will your performance improve, but this increase in your body’s “fuel” will last all day, helping you feel better and be more productive even hours after you’ve left the gym.
While many of us are focused intensely on results at the gym or on the field, you need to look at your recovery time as well. If you spend huge amounts of time pushing yourself to the limit and don’t make enough effort to let your body rebuild, how well are you really going to be performing? You know that if you run yourself into the ground, you get nowhere. So how can you keep hitting the gym with intensity or giving your all on the field without burning out? How can you get adequate recovery time when muscle soreness and body tiredness seem to plague you at every turn? The answer is L-carnatine L-tartrate.
Considered to be one of the most effective and impressive supplements on the market, L-carnatine L-tartrate has been scientifically proven to not only reduce exercise-induced tissue damage but also significantly increase insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBP). Specifically, studies have shown an increase in IGFBP-3, a binding protein which has been targeted by scientists for being closely related to overall muscle growth. However, the best part about L-carnatine L-tartrate is that it’s one very simple and natural dietary supplement which causes the body to instinctively kick into high gear. Normally, there is a post-workout decrease in androgen receptors (AR), which are essentially the pathways for testosterone to aid in building muscle. But when the body is presented with the proper nutrients, that devastating decrease in AR is alleviated. When you feed your body with COMPETE, you will have a clinical dose of this AR-boosting, muscle-protecting, mass-enhancing amino. That means quicker recovery times, less soreness, improved gains, and an overall healthier-feeling you.
As you exercise, your body naturally goes into a “fight or flight” mode. This is caused by increased levels of hormones, especially endorphins and epinephrine (also known as adrenaline), being secreted into the bloodstream. Most of us have heard the term “adrenaline rush” and some may even think of it as a good thing during exercise, but in all honesty it is more likely to hinder your efforts to stay focused and on-task for personal bests. Epinephrine helps your body circulate greater volumes of blood as you work out, and that’s a good thing, but the increased blood pressure, jittery feelings, and disjointed thoughts that come with that improved circulation are not very good at all. To improve mental focus, COMPETE provides you with two incredible compounds that are perfect for managing the physical stress brought on by this rush of hormones. Rhodiola rosea is a potent adaptogen that helps you stay calm, even when stressed, and vinpocetine is a powerful alkaloid that will increase blood flow to your brain to improve your mood, energy, and speed of thought.
Though you might not know it, rhodiola rosea is as common as ginseng. It has uses in traditional medicine as an anti-fatigue agent, but it is prized for its ability to balance the body’s system for responding to physical stress. It’s considered to be an “adaptogen” or a substance which helps the body remain calm despite being under stress, especially positive stressors like exercising. COMPETE contains only the purest rhodiola in carefully researched amounts, allowing you to keep your stress levels in check no matter how hard you’re hitting the gym or how intense your game is getting.
Derived from the periwinkle plant, vinpocetine is a synthetic alkaloid which delivers a ton of results. While increasing blood flow to the brain, it manages to bring with it an impressive amount of neuroprotection against toxins and excess stimulation. Neural inflammation is reduced and, if you are a headache sufferer, your headache chance will also be diminished. Your mood will enjoy a healthy boost and your thinking will be as sharp and quick as possible, meaning you will be able to think, feel, and perform at your very best.
Let’s face it: When we work out, we sweat. A lot. But dehydration is a serious problem for both your performance and your body. We all know that we have to drink water, and keep drinking it. Even slight dehydration can cause headaches, cramping, muscle pain, nausea, and intense fatigue. And the more you push it, the worse it gets, especially if you’re also not replenishing your electrolytes. Imagine trying to bust through your personal best with the worst case of the flu you’ve ever had in your life! It’s not gonna happen. Your body needs electrolytes for cell membrane stability and to carry the electrical charges necessary for muscle contractions. They are essentially salts and minerals, such as potassium, which are a huge part of staying hydrated and keeping your body in a comfortable state. That’s why COMPETE is formulated with the perfect amount of electrolytes in every serving to keep you going for as long as you need to.
