I've only been using this for one week, but so far so good. I was able to visit the gym 3 times in that week when I can typically only manage 2 sessions per week. I was definitely less fatigued after these workouts too. Only time will tell if this improves my immune system too / frequency of colds and flu, but I'll certainly be persevering. Finally, I actually really like the taste (orange flavour). It's the same as Berocca or Lucozade type tablets, which is fine.Goes Well With:Water
After a good session it is a nice boost to the system...tastes great too
Great product, surprisingly tasty. Would recommend and will be buying again
I've been looking for a good product to help recover from long bike rides and runs (training for half marathons and upping my bike distances) and the mix of protein and carbs looked ideal so opted for this. Been using for a few weeks with positive effects on my recovery. However, the taste is most definitely the worst I've experienced from Myprotein. It's a real shame because I've always had positive experiences with MP tastes/flavours. It's pretty sharp to say the least and would be great if they could do this in something more mellow like vanilla (or any others!). Great at what it's meant to do, approach with caution on the flavour! Goes Well With:Water
Despite users complaining about the taste, I can not. Tastes good and the effect is there! I use 20g with 500ml of water, making it some kind of isotonic drink. I use it during my long runs and after every run. I like the product and recommend it to others.
I found the Re:Charge recovery shake really good to use and seriously helpful after my runs but can we please get some new flavours?! I know taste is a personal thing but that orange is despicable. I had to mix in some Robinson's fruit squash just to mask the taste.
I was impressed with previous MP products I've used so thought I would try this to help keep me going through long active days. It was pretty disappointing - doesn't mix well and there is always some powder left undissolved despite vigorous mixing for prolonged periods. The taste is also pretty dreadful, to the point where I use half the amount and add some fruit squash to the mix to try and mask the taste. I definitely won't be buying this again.Goes Well With:The bin?
I drink this during exercise. I need it. I'm 44 and have a punishing 30 min cardio routine before I hit the metal. The secret is drink half the bottle then top up at the fountain. Each time it dilutes. That way you keep topping up the energy and protein for the duration of the workout. The taste to start with is the same as a Berroca. But you dilute along the way. It's fine. It's liquid, you need it. This and Haskells Hades pre trainer get me through 30 mins hard cardio, 1 hours free weights and 30 mins karate training. I'm no spring chicken.
Can't believe people are complaining about the taste. It's so easy to drink and refreshing after a tough session. I have a dodgy stomach so find it difficult to take shakes without feeling bloated. This stuff doesn't do that. Very nice product Goes Well With:Water
Just started running and strength training, this drink provides an amazing boost and everything needed for a quick recovery when your finished. definitely buying again!
Got this as a replacement for the usual protein shakes I've used post-running. I want to start with adressing the taste; it's not as bad as some people here make out. At worst it's like sugar-free Robinson's squash, but I've started putting a banana in with it for some extra protein and whizz it up with a hand blender. This makes it actually very, very nice, almost gives you something to look forward to. I have noticed, like others have mentioned on here, that I seem less sore the day after. This is a big plus as before I could be absolutely ruined for a day or two after a long run. Haven't used it long enough to be able to give a complete picture, but so far it seems to be doing ok. Goes Well With:Water, banana.
The flavour of this drink is disappointing. I am definitely finding it hard to stomach so I am looking forward to something new after I get through this bag. It mixes fairly great after several vigorous shakes but I just don't like the taste. I can definitely feel the difference once I've taken it after a long run so I can't knock the effectiveness but this drink needs an acquired taste!
Mixes well outstanding value and great service from order to home, 1st class productGoes Well With:Whey protein or Water
Very happy with it...does what it says on the tin
Holy cow. Maybe I need to mix it with milk or something - but I bought it for a camp where I knew milk wouldn't be available every day. With water the orange taste makes me want to throw up. I can stomach most things, but this is a new level. Worst of all it takes about 3 scoops to get necessary 20g protein and ~60g carb serving after an endurance workout. Have little doubt in the effectiveness if taken in the necessary quantities, good mix of carb type, protein, creatine and vitamins, but it's a shame not to have something nice to look forward to after training til I get through this bag... Fortunately it won't be too long because 1.5kg is less than 15 servings!Goes Well With:waterboarding, kneecapping and various other methods of torture.
Have been taking after working out at the gym, the mixability is very good no lumps and not too thick, easily drinkable. The taste reminds me of orange calpol but you get use to it. Very pleased with this product as feel my recovery is quicker once I've taken it. Will definitely be trying it when I start back on my training days for running. I have previously taken whey protein plus when was training for a half marathon last year and found it good but prefer RE:CHARGE. Goes Well With:Water
Ads recovery and lets you train more consistently at higher level
Wonderful product for restoration of muscle glycogen after exercise is as vital as on weight and weight loss, because it is very vashney knock catabolism after exercise, RE:CHARGE copes with this! This is a serious mix of simple and complex carbohydrates, protein, creatine, vitamins - in general, all in one! I recommend!Goes Well With:ENER:GEL
Have previously used Recovery XS but decided to give this a go as it was on offer. A bit wary about the flavour (orange) but it's more of a tropical-type taste which is perfectly acceptable. Seems to be doing the trick after long runs and off-road sessions. Will definitely by buying some more in future.Goes Well With:Water
Service fantastic as always and product works a charm
This product is great! Could definitely see an improvement in recovery after taking it for a few weeks! The powder is super fine so it mixes really easily with no lumps and the taste isn't bad either! Will definitely be restocking when I run out! Goes Well With:Water
Seems pretty effective. Tastes good and mixes well.
I'm ordering my second bag of this now. It gives me the legs to play competitive squash 4-5 times per week every week! I've been playing for a few years and playing that much used to break me / burn me out. Not any more! I've put on about 2kgs just in my legs, so I'm guessing the protein content really helps over the longer term, but the instant energy straight to tired muscles really does the job. Regarding taste (as there have been quite a few negative comments about it), it tastes more like pssionfruit than orange and I think it tastes good. Not great, but when you consider what it does for you, itwould be hard to get much better.Goes Well With:Squash
Although a little sweet, this stuff does taste good... Almost an orange and passion fruit vibe going on! Delicious. Perhaps a little grainy... Have been using recovery XS for some time now, and before that recovery EVO, and as I have only been using this for a couple of days it's hard to say whether it's better, but it certainly makes me feel better sooner after a hard workout! Goes Well With:Healthy diet and regular hard exercise!
Great for after bike / running races when you don't want a thick heavy chocolaty recovery drink, orange flavor nice, sweet and easy to drink.Goes Well With:water
I bought this as it was Orange flavor amongst other reasons . I don't like strawberry, Chocolate, banana any of the usual flavors the protein things come in. just like the many other reviews it does get a bit of getting used to. At first It reminded me of antibiotic medicine and Calpol. but more so It is like drinking Sunny Delight you know at the bottom of the bottle when you have not shaken it. I haven't drank it for years because it's sweet and sickly and full of sugars but Re:Charge tastes just like it..well atleast how I recall it tasted. I'd only go to say it goes well with water as I wouldn't want to try it with anything else due to the strong taste. As I take it after long runs I dilute the last half to re hydrate too. Goes Well With:Water
A great product to take straight after hard training, find it really refreshing and reboots my energy levelsGoes Well With:Water and Shaker
This is great for post workout along with PeptoPro, it already contains Peptopro but if you looking for fast intake of protein post workout without feeling bloated, this is a great combo, add creatine and beta alanine and you will not want to go back to usual whey protein again.Goes Well With:PeptoPro, Creatine, Beta alanine
Excellent for after a hard work out. The carb content makes you feel full and it sits really well on the stomach. Maybe not as good as recovery XS but easier on the stomach. The taste is horrendous but I don't take it for the taste.
I read a lot of reviews before deciding to purchase this one, I was almost put off by the comments about the taste but read another review who basically said what I think and its not really about taste but what the it can do for you. I have used it for a few weeks now, after my run and have noticed that my legs dont ache as much for as long... Is it in my mind? Maybe but I will continue to use it. One last thing, the taste is nowhere near as bad as others make out, yes, it is quite sweet, but not so sweet that you have to moan and complain about it! Goes Well With:Slip a Banana with it..
I think this RE:CHARGE does what it says on the tin and am quite surprised about all the reviews on the disgusting taste. Whilst this isn't a delicious milkshake, it really is not bad at all. I use only 200-250ml of water, and once blended it becomes light and creamy and perfectly drinkable. I don't like ice myself, but I imagine replacing some of the water with ice in the blender would mellow the taste drastically.
Good stuff. Does what it says on the tin. Tastes alright to me, but who cares? It's Muscle Beach, not Masterchef. I'm willing to wager those moaning about flavour are the guys that do their hair before a gym session.
I bought this as it seemed to be a new product to go further than the current Recovery XS. On paper it is ideal, however the taste leaves a lot to be desired. I know there's a lot of reviews on here picking up on the taste, but it is very bad and I've not managed to finish one drink yet. I'll be going back to Recovery XS until the taste has been resolved.
Overall RE:CHARGE is good and offers good assistance with recovery, however, for me, the taste is not to my liking. All-in-all not bad, just need to sort the taste out.
This product in combination with the Pre:pare and Pro:Long have had a significant impact on my mass gaining compared to my previous combination of instant oats and total protein pre-workout and maltodextrin and whey isolate post-workout. After starting to use the Pre:pare/Pro:Long and Re:Charge combination I have gained mass every workout where as I've always struggled before. I also get less aching in the days following the workout. The taste of the Re:Charge was a real issue for me to start with, but I now drink it mixed with 400ml of water and lots of ice and I can drink it just fine now. I wouldn't drink it for the taste, but it's perfectably bearable. I think the ice helps a lot. Highly recommended if you can cope with the taste.Goes Well With:PRE:PARE/PRO:LONG
The content and ratios should make RE:CHARGE the perfect product for post workout for endurance athletes. However, the content is only good if you can get it inside you, and the taste is so awful it is a real struggle to drink this. Most endurance athletes have to consume bottles of sticky, sweet energy drinks and gels so the last thing we want when we finish is another sickly, sweet, syrupy post workout drink, which this unfortunately is. Added to that, the after taste is horrendous. I think I will go back to Recovery XS, which is not the right ratios for what I need, but at least I can drink it.
RE:CHARGE has a horrible orange taste, a shame as it's a good product.
On the face of it, RE:CHARGE should be a pretty good product. It's got just about everything I'm looking for in a post workout shake with the added bonus of including creatine so you don't have to mess around with measuring out creatine and getting the resulting "gritty" protein shake. However, the biggest and most fundamental flaw with this product is the taste. It is awful. On first trying I was very briefly reminded of the flavour from dissolvable vitamin C tablets until the disgusting after taste kicked in. It took over half an hour to get the shake inside me as I kept gagging every time I tried to drink it. I personally wouldn't recommend buying this unless different flavours are brought out.Goes Well With: PRE:PARE and PRO:LONG
