So I bought this for endurance hiking as I am building up to 100km at the moment we are only at 12.5 miles and I end up exhausted, cold and with a headache, despite electrolytes and carohydrates in my 3 litres of water. I thought this might help. I am not teally sure. I have finished the last 2 walks without a headache but I still feel cold and exhausted. The others seem to have so much more energy then me, we are all around the same fitness level. So I am not sure this has made a difference. Taste: ok would be better if there was a range of flavours, as it is kind of milky I feel strawberry might be better. It also does have a chemically sort of twang. Mixes ok but you have to keep shakingGoes Well With:Electrolytes and carbs in your water Protein shake at the end.
The product has a strange taste, we bought it instead of using lucozade. The flavour is quite strong, tastes almost like fresh orange juice and has a weird texture. Like other reviews state the usage is a bit unclear. My husband changed his normal Lucozade for this but says he struggles near the end of his run and has gone back to Lucozade. He has also had a sick feeling after using the product. Wouldn't recommend this product as not really sure what its benefits are.
This product contains milk. You have it marked up as vegan.
I am a competitive tennis player playing all over the world in the juniors circuit. I have often suffered with cramps mid match however due to this drink I have not suffered anything so far (2 weeks), it doesn't mix well but tastes good so I would definitely recommend it
Does what it says I run long hours and prolong helps keep me fuelled,hydrated and ready for my next run Goes Well With:Water
Gives me everything thing I need after a workout. Much needed after starting a 12 week training planGoes Well With:Water
I bought it as a friend said it was good. I agree it helps me as I get better at cycling. I've only been cycling for 12 weeks after 20 years as a couch potato. And find this product really helps me keep going.
Hi love this product as an intra workout drink. Sipping as i workout. but i do tend to keep topping up with more water. As i find this works well for me as it keeps me energised and hydrated. I find i can workout longer and better with pro long. For me the taste is fine. Yes you do have to keep shaking the mix as some settles on the bottom. But also this fine as i sip in between sets. I Must say for shorter workouts i do use less than suggested. Try a few ways and find what works for you.Goes Well With:Water
Loving this as an intra workout drink. Recommended to a friend and had to buy him a pouch.
I'm on here ordering this for the 2nd time. I sweat like a racehorse when I'm training, so I always take a decent drink into the gym with me otherwise I dehydrate & get headaches. I used to use lucozade/Gatorade type stuff but this tops them all. It helps me keep going when training gets tough & I've really got to dig in to finish the sets.Goes Well With:500 - 750ml of water
Its an amazing product and it keeps me going always whenever my team mates are getting tired.Goes Well With:Daily exercises
I've used this on a few long distance road bike rides. Mixes very well but does tend to settle at the bottom of the bottle after a while. However a quick shake sorts it out, tastes good and goes down very easy. A great productGoes Well With:Progel
Taste is a bit strong, don't mix very well, overall average compaired to other brands.
Just what I needed intra work out. I use to take just BCAA in a juice, but PRO:LONG gives me added carbs as well as BCAA and electrolytes. Excellent to help me push out those extra reps. Mixes well after a couple of good shakes, but settles again if left to long. Not a problem, just shake it up again. Tastes excellent. Goes Well With:Water and hard work.
Have only just starting using My Protein products and so far have not been let down by the true performance that I have currently seen. Was unsure with what carb drink to use being a cyclist and been using my old brand for the past 2 years. So Pro long was the perfect choice.... Watt bike ramp test was the session to see how good this product was and I was not disappointed, increase gains on power was the big plus and touching figures I have not been able to reach so far this year, even after a reliability event yesterday. I do feel that half the measure would be recommended if out on the road, but as a new product it's all trial and error.
I needed something to allow me to go longer in my speed endurance sessions in the winter and this does the job. I was using Powerade before and this is better, has extra ingredients and is cheaper. The taste is good. Like watery juice, slightly acidic but very, very drinkable.
This is the first pre-workout I have taken in powder form. I am currently training for a 30km Adventure Race & my training includes steep Hill-Running. I am not a strong runner at all & in my first week of training I was breathless, sore & couldn't make it to the top. In my second week, after using this, I made it to the top 10 out of 12 times without stopping. Recovery was much much quicker too!! I sip on a little of this before my workout, and then throughout. The taste it ok, would be best used with ice cold water as can taste a little sickly if water is warm from being in the sun. Product needs a good shake in-between sips as powder gathers at the bottom. Overall, great product so far! Loving the MyProtein range- quality products & great value for money!!
I had reviewed this before and wasn't overly happy with the change in it though it was still effective. Thankfully with my new bag it is back to what it was and much more pleasant to drink. I couldn't do a workout without it. Was feeling unwell the other day, half heartedly started my workout while drinking my ProLong, turned out I was dehydrated and this miracle drink helped rehydrate me and I felt a lot better, thoroughly recommend.
Am now on my 3rd bag of Pro Long and am delighted MP seem to have got the mix just right again. The 2nd bag I got as I reviewed was very strong and acidic and had to be really diluted to make it drinkable. Now it is back to the way it was and is perfect so I am happy now with my work out drink that gets me right through to the end and pull out that wee bit extra when I need it. At a very intense spin class last night I was fading towards the end, a good drink of Pro Long gave me the energy which gave me the stamina to push hard to the end. Thank you MPGoes Well With:Cold water
