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.
I find most Myprotein product labels very poor, visually poor to read and printed cheap. It states 3 x the 90g scoop that's supplied, which I find is too much for me and I end up with wind and sometimes stomach cramps. The taste as others has stated is very chalky, shame it's not like the nutty chocolate whey protein my wife uses. However I guess the product it's self does what it should, I've come across some top UK athlete using Myprotein, and feel they should push what products they use to help Runner's pick the right products....
I have never used any shakes or powders before but thought I would give it ago as I found my recovery time is quite slow. I will admit I was quite skeptical if it would really make any difference but found it has really helped towards my recovery time and would definitely recommend. I was worried about the taste and texture as there were some mixed reviews on it however I found that it wasn't too bad a little bit powdery but other than that fine. Would be good if there was some more flavor choices though as it it is rather limited. Overall a very good product and would recommend to anyone who struggles with post workout soreness.
Good value for money. Great taste. Goes Well With:Skimmed milk
Recovery Shake is smooth and tasty and is easily mixed with water, I now take it with my Magnesium straight after the CrossFit WoD all together and feel better the next day for it plus, I have one just before going to sleep which helps too.Goes Well With:Water or milk and add some Magnesium.
This is a great post-workout drink if you want to get something down quickly. Super effective as it contains all you need after an exhausting session. I relly recommend it!Goes Well With:coconut or almond milk or normal milk
The flavour is good although the taste and consistency are terrible. the product is very powdery and doesnt mix great However, the results are good. i've noticed a very quick difference only half way through my programme, Will probably be switching back to Recovery Evo after this batch.Goes Well With:The seaside as it reminds me of sand. No its not that bad to be honest..
Great stuff! I don't have to spend the following days after the gym in pain! My only problem is that the resealable bag is so frustrating to reseal I ended up transferring it to tubs instead. But other than that it's great.
Only used twice so far however mixed it up has a great frothy texture a little bit of a synthetic first taste but has a great after taste! As far as it goes as a recovery formula it seems to do the trick and combined with a good foam rolling at the end of a run muscles feel good and refreshed the next day!
This is my first purchase from myprotein and having read the reviews on the recovery XS I must admit I was slightly conserend that it was going to taste really bad. I mixed it first with just water and it wasn't great, so now I mix half n half with milk and what a difference. More than happy with this and will be buying again. Goes Well With:Milk
It has allows me to work recover from injury and matches quickly and it is allowing my to train on a more regular basis. It is an enabler for all athletes. Goes Well With:Whole milk or in a protein smoothie/pancakes
So far so good! I haven't been using the product long enough yet to get the full benefit but, I seem to be fully recovered the next day and ready for another workout or more. Goes Well With:Milk or Water
The smooth chocolate tastes GREAT!!....with milk, do yourselves a favour and avoid mixing with water if you can..BURGH. mixes pretty well in a smart shaker, does have a very slight chalky texture, again more so with water. I've only used recovery xs a few times so far but as some one who plays 2 sports and has 2 pt sessions a week as well as a boot camp session it really helps my recovery for the next days training and has helped stave off the dreaded DOMSGoes Well With:Weight sessions and sports activities
I use this to recover from Cycling, a mix of HIIT and endurance rides, mixes ok the chocolate mint is very minty, tastes better with skimmed milk rather than water, seems to work ok at 47 I need all the help I can get to recover.Goes Well With:Skimmed milk
Bought the 5kg, it's a bargain, it's also an incentive to do lots of training over the coming couple of months. Easy to measure, mix and drink. Seems to work well too and doesn't make me wretch...Goes Well With:Milk
I switched to MyProtein from Optimum Nutrition a while back and have always been really pleased with the products - the taste, the quality and the value. Having had a varied mix of products and flavours I thought I was safe ordering this in Chocolate Mint - how wrong could I have been! The Mint is SO STRONG it was burning my throat on the way down! Stupidy (and partly because I've been pleased with everything else I've had from MyProtein) I've ordered a 5kg pouch and am now dreading having to choke it down after every workout for a fair while... Mix is ok - a little bit gritty but no where near the worst I've ever had. Results remain to be seen as I've only just started using Recovery XS instead of simply having Impact Whey after a workout (but I've never had issues with the effectiveness of the products before so not expecting any issues). It's just the MINT!! Goes Well With:Water or milk. Just LOTS of either to dilute the flavour as much as possible!
I tried it and from the first time it left a very chalky taste on my mouth. Had to drink at least 500ml of water after the protein so that it clears my mouth! Worst protein I ever tried!
This product will take some getting used to, it doesn't taste very good, and it doesn't blend very well. (I use water, might try milk, see if it's any better) On the other hand, the results are pretty good, and that's all I care about :) So I'll be buying it again.
Ordered this recovery product in the Strawberry Cream flavour for use in marathon training. I found that it mixes very badly with water and has a very chalky taste and flavour. very heavy on the stomach and hasn't done any favours for gas problems. Doesn't seem to have any different effectiveness for recovery and muscle soreness than any other brand I have triedGoes Well With:Not sure ???
i got this for post run recovery and so far i can really feel the benefit - particularly the day after. Choc taste is ok - better with 1/4 milk and rest water to take the edge off.
I have really noticed the difference in this product after a heavy workout. The doms is better by a good 30/40% which means i can get going again quickly. I got this when it was on offer and was supposed to get a free gift. I forgot to add the gift and emailed myprotien who basically said tough so that left a sour taste. Poor show from my protein, good product.
I use it after a hard track session or after I've been doing my core work. Normally have it along with a meal after training. Been using it for the past month and I feel a real difference especially training everyday my body is less sore in the morning an after training.
I use this after a long ride and the difference between using it and not is really noticeable. Mixes ok and although a little chalky (smooth choc) its not hideous, I even reordered as 5kg the second timeGoes Well With:400ml water and wobbly legs
Good value for money ideal for my marathon training
Bit chalky and its sweet but not bad overall . Does mix well in the shaker .
Great for combatting those next day aches and pains, one serving directly following a 10k run has been enough to drastically reduce DOMS. Only negative point would be that with the Choc Mint flavour the mint has an overpowering chemically taste that can be quite hard to stomach straight after a hard session, loads of other flavours are available though. Goes Well With:Milk and a banana in the blender.
I found that the recovery shake helped after my bike ride to reduce aches and muscle pain.Goes Well With:1 scoop of powder with 400ml of water.
This is the perfect stuff for a serious training regime. If you train most days then this helps to get you ready for the next day. My son has just completed the Devises to Westminster canoe marathon and we gave it to him and his partner every evening as soon as they got out of the water after paddling for 35 miles. Of course they were fatigued but they both agreed that the Recovery XS helped enourmously!
Worse tasting protein drink I've ever had, Chocolate. Very powderery and has a bad chemical aftertaste to it. Used more and less water than advised but tastes the same. I usually use a product for 12-16 week for best results but I won't be able to finish this bag off -2 weeks in wont be buying this product again. Miles better tasting post recover supps such as CNP PRO RECOVER, will be reverting back to that. Goes Well With:Nothing
I've been using MyProtein products for about 4 years now, mainly the Impact Whey, but have struggled putting on size so decided to go for the Recovery XS along with the Whey Protein. I got the Chocolate Mint flavour and I can honestly say it was awful. With other bad tasting protein powders you can generally still force it down, but this stuff is simply unbearable. Even the smell is pretty bad!
This is the only recovery product that I use and it has allowed me to train hard 13 days out of 14 for Ironman races. It is way above any other product out there. I use 300ml of water with the strawberry powder and the next morning I can go hard again.Goes Well With:300ml of H2O
My house no longer smells like a protien bomb s exploded !! bought this for my son who s been using various protien shakes etc for the last year and the main thing we ve noticed with this product is he s stopped stinking the house out , so can only deduce it s much better on his digestive system, and it s farmore pleasant for everyone around him, as for effectiveness only being rated 4 this is purely because he s not been using it long enough to make a proper judgement
