Overall - beyond expectations Taste - Found slight chalky taste with water but fantastic with milk Mix Ability - Mixed Smooth with any fluid Effectiveness - I found this product a must for any high end Cardio/High Impact Work Out. Before I tried this product after my workout program my muscles felt sluggish and burned out within a couple of hours post workout. By the next day I felt my body reluctant to go 100% in my program due to the muscles not fully recovered from the 45 min. to 60 min. workout the previous day and muscle growth minimum. Once I started this product I instantly noticed a difference in my post recovery. My muscle no longer felt sluggish or burned out, and the next day I found myself able to push 100% in my workout program, my muscle growth increased substantially and I can now see me obtaining my goals. I highly recommend this product for any high end workout that requires Optimum ratio of protein to carbohydrates Includes electrolyte blend to replace salts lost through sweat so you can recover and be ready to go to the max the next day and know you will gain everyday muscle mass. The workout/program I use is "Insanity" and this work out pushes you beyond what you can do, but with this product I am now achieving the results and see my goals obtainable. Goes Well With:Exceed / Whey Protein / Pulse V4
I found this product a must for the maximum cardio/high impact workout, to keep you muscle from collapsing from breakdown after 45 min. to 60 min. work out. Without this product I felt sluggish, burned out in my muscles. When I started my next day work out I could feel that my muscles still have not recovered from the previous day work out. Now with Recover XS I am pumped and ready to hit it hard and perform at my best and have seen substantial muscle growth increase. I highly recommend this product to go with the higher end workouts that demand the nutrients, supplements and amino acids for recover and muscle growth. You may ask what work out can demand this level of performance from a product "Insanity", before this product I was not able to push myself to the full potential of program now with Recovery XS I now can push myself and get the results I wish. On Taste better with milk, with water it retained slight chalky taste. On Mix Ability mixed smooth with any liquid. Goes Well With:Pulse IV / Exceed / Whey Protein
great stuff really effective, i use this when i have been on a long trail run in excess of 20 miles and it is great , really helps with my recovery.
Gave this a try instead of my usual post workout drink. Mixes really well and tastes good.Goes Well With:Skimmed milk
Quite liked this will be buying more
The Recovery XS tastes good, it filled me with energy after my workout.
I tried this with water immediately after a workout and it was not easy to drink. Had to force it down. Will probably be much better with milk.
I really enjoyed Recovery XS, it mixes well and helped a lot with my recovery. The only downside is that it had a powdery aftertaste.Goes Well With:Water
I tried this Recovery XS purely as a sample. I tend to get deep muscle tiredness the day after a workout but the day after taking this, whilst I wouldn't say I felt 100%, it definitely made a big difference. I just didn't feel that muscular heavy feeling that I normally would. As for the taste, I had chocolate - I don't know what the fuss over the taste is all about. It leaves a tiny bit of bitterness later but who cares? Have a cup of tea or chew on some gum or something and it's gone. I will order this product again.
Wasn't sore the day after despite a huge workout tastes like coco so no complaints hereGoes Well With:Milk or water
Recovery XS (RTS- Sample) is very tasty and quick to dissolve.
I found this great after training, I was suffering with muscle aches ec, but I soon learnt that after having a drink of recovery XS, I felt it lot better, easy to mix and very nice to drink.
Recovery XS is very nice and went down like a treat after training.
I got this Recovery XS milkshake as a deal when I purchased some protein isolate. As a student I don't usually get all the side products as I simply can't afford them. However I really enjoyed this shake, chocolate flavour tasted delicious and went down well post workout and I felt great after!
I used this Recovery XS (RTS- Sample) after a hard gym session. I have to say that the taste was a bit hard to take. But, I did not get the soreness and occasional cramps I usually get after a real hard session, so it seemed to work. I guess one small sample is not enough to tell really. Would I buy it? Possibly not.
Recovery XS (RTS- Sample) tastes great and mixes well. It's easily the best recovery shake I have had.
Recovery XS (RTS- Sample) does exactly what it says on the tin! It's great tasting and with the inclusion of a carb blend, it really helped to reduce DOMs.Goes Well With:Ibcaa
Recovery XS (RTS- Sample) was okay at mixing, I think I was unfortunate with the last bit of powder stuck to the bottle being stubborn and not wanting to mix. The taste was good. There's a slightly bitter aftertaste, which may have been the BCAAs. The effectiveness is difficult to say after one sample, but looking at the content and how I felt, I believe there is definitely a benefit.
Recovery XS was okay but I think you need to use it for a month to feel the full benefit.
I thought this Recovery XS was a good product however I didn't see much gain with it. It tasted good and overall it's easy to mix for an after workout shake.Goes Well With:Water, I didn't try milk.
Recovery XS (RTS- Sample) is an effective recovery drink but there are lots of other more tastier products on the website. I took a couple of these shakes to my boxing gym and let the lads try them out and none liked the taste. It does taste a lot better with milk but it's still not very nice. It's less hassle to carry around and to prepare than carrying powder and making a shake. It's good if you're busy and on the move.
