Drinking this without throwing up is a skill in my opinion, but when I got used to it and struggled through it's well worth it. I feel great after using it, certainly improved recovery time, and meant I can lift and workout again much sooner. Will continue to buy but might try mixing up the flavours. I have it around half hour after a work out with creatine and water. Down in one if possible. Bought as part of the rugby bundle, but I use unflavoured creatine for obvious reasons.Goes Well With:Creatine, water
I used this for 4 weeks, three scoops 4-5 times per week. Workouts were strength oriented. From week 2 onwards I noticed a massive reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness, and by the end of the month I had virtually no pain the following days. I took no other protein supplements at the same time and still gained a significant amount of strength and size. This is great! I'd advise on giving the shake an extra long mix - it took around a minute to get rid of all the clumps. I used strawberry which tasted absolutely fine.Goes Well With:Ice cold water
A bit of an overstrong taste ,and I found it heavy on my stomach ,felt a bit off for a few hours after downing half a litre after a Hard training ride .
Good product really works but is disgusting
It is a good product, i have really felt the benefits the day after a really hard training session. The only down side is the taste, it is a little chalky which leaves a bit of a funny taste on the tongue. But overall I would recommend this as a good recovery shake.
Excellent stuff, I use this after cycling, don't suffer from fatigue next day and ready to go againGoes Well With:Water
Delivery time from ordering was spot on really quick taste is really synthetic other than that it does what it says on the tin
So far very happy, did one misteake ordered strawberry flavour which I am not the best fan but still doesn't change the fact that after mixing it is actually a very drinkable shake. Overall so far I am happy with the product and definitielly will continue but with vanilla flavour next time. Goes Well With:Hershey liquid chocolate, adding one spoon and taste amazing!
Fantastic! Always buy this stuff works very well!
I took a bit of a punt ordering this one, (after reading a few reviews online) hoping that it would be a powerful post-workout hit, but sorely disappointed. "Smooth Chocolate" is not smooth at all - very powdery & always leaves residue in the bottom of my cup. Recommended dose of 3 scoops? No way! I was under the impression the carbs in this were designed not to bloat, but that's not what I found! I can't get half-way through a full serving before I can't stomach any more & feel like I've swallowed a balloon. At best I can only take a one scoop dose. Lesson learnt here. I will not be ordering this nonsense again, instead sticking to my usual Whey powders.Goes Well With:nothing
This stuff is awesome for recovery if you don't want to have to think about making up your own shakes (ie carbs and protein)
Tried this for an after workout recovery shake. It tastes good, mixes well and seems to do the job
Strawberry Cream Flavour Tastes Amazing & Can Be Mixed Easily To Provide A Delectable Post Workout Shake, Plus It Works In Full Effect GREAT PRODUCT
Good recovery mix, fast and easy to mix and tastes okay..A+
Bought this instead of my usual Maxiprotein product, and didn't like it, had a strange taste, i bought chocolate smooth and it didnt really taste like chocolate, wouldnt buy againGoes Well With:milk better than water
Fantastic product and both strawberry and chocolate taste great - cant wait for my next workout! I was nervous ordering this after some reviews about the taste - but they are both great. Not sure what others were really expecting.
After trying various different products for recovery and gain I had disappointing results despite following instructions to the letter. I told a work mate that uses the gym on a regular basis like myself and he told me about the recovery xs. I ordered it as soon as I got home and awaited eagerly. After the first use I noticed that I did not ache anywhere near as much as usual despite pushing myself just as hard and I even had more energy, this has continued for the last month and shows no signs of changing! I would recommend this product to anybody in a heartbeat!Goes Well With:The CLA tablets, getting ripped and recovering quickly, just keep that exercise up and these two products work excellently together, or at least they have for me!
I Bought the Recovery XS 3 weeks ago, Taste wise the chocolate and banana flavour is great and it mixes well. The combination of Creatine, Carbohydrates and Protein is the best for maximal gains. Overall one of the best supplements i have ever taken, i recommend it at everyone without any hesitation. CheersGoes Well With:400ml water,milk and fruit shakes with egg whites
Overall, it is good value for money however I really cannot stand the taste. I ordered Strawberry and cream flavour and the first night I followed the instructions and put 3 scoops into my shaker and I just couldn't handle it. The flavour was over powering, artificial and I threw it down the sink after two mouthfuls. I changed my mixture to 1.5 scoops and it is more bearable. MP really need to look into adding natural flavorings to their products, a lot of supplement companies understand this and are moving towards it and I don't want MP to be left behind. That said, once you get past the taste it does a decent job. Even with my reduced mixture I am seeing benefits.
I am training hard for the London Revolution bike ride and am putting the miles in the saddle. I use this after hard rides to help me recover and I can honestly say it does exactly that. I feel no fatigue in general or in my legs even after 3 hours in the saddle. Before I started taking this my legs would feel sore and weak for a few days. The only downside is that it tastes quite bad. If you take small sips, it is OK to start with but then bit by bit a really artificial chemically taste creeps in which is pretty unpleasant. I have tried it with milk and water and it is equally bad. Saying that, the most important thing to me is the effect it has on my body and my recovery and frankly I can't knock that. If taste is important, though, give this one a wide berth.
