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
Good value for money ideal for my marathon training
Excellent post work out recovery formula that gives impressive gains. I'm training for triathlon but still putting on muscle doing plyometric and body weight workouts, not pushing heavy weights. Tastes great (chocolate smooth), mixes well and is excellent value given the complex content. Definitely helps me train harder. Highly recommended.
This must be the worst tasting protein powder I have ever tried. It's texture is chalky and tastes incredibly sour! I dread every time I come to drink it. I won't be buying this one again for sure!
I do wish I was able to comment on how effective this product is however the taste of it is so disgusting I wasnt even able to fully drink it. It smells just lovely (I ordered strawberry flavour) but that's it... I mixed it with water, then I tried almond milk etc and nothing seems to work. The most disgusting thing I have ever tried, just wasted my money.
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
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!
Chocolate smooth tastes great and mixes really well just with the shaker bottle, it is great for beating post workout cravings for high calorie food.Goes Well With:A workout!
The product certainly seems to have helped with stiffness after gym sessions. I use it as an alternative to breakfast on days when I commute to work early in the morning by bike
Was looking for something that would help me recover from my long runs. I chose this as it stated it had lots of products contained within the drink that would help muscles recover quickly. Tried the drink with water as suggested, but was unable to stomach it. Left me feeling very sick due to the over sweet taste from the sweeteners. It also left a powdery consistency even when shaken. I'm just about able to stomach it with milk (taste improved), although not something I would by again. Also quite filling if consumed before a meal. Goes Well With:Milk
Good product. I got the Choc mint and taste is nicer than most others. Contains same ingredients as more expensive brands and mixes well. Feel less tired and sore after long cycles etc, So no complaints here!
This powder is very thick, wouldn't recommend mixing and then refrigerating for the next morning as it turns to ice cream at the bottom and needs remixing. Some people have said the taste is really bad. For me it isn't the greatest but its drinkable. I don't think its chalky it's just that the chocolate taste is way too overpowering, tastes like a really rich dark chocolate mouse but the only problem is you have 500ml to try and drink down! Seems to give my muscles some sort of recovery the day after, still get aches and pains but it definitely relieves them and has you training a bit sooner than you would. Goes Well With:400ml water 100ml milk to dilute the strong taste
Some of the reviews on here are daft. This is a really good product and does what it says on the tin. Defiantly helped with my recovery time and id recoment to anyone. Yes it's a little bitty but it's got a lot packed into it. If you want smooth then buy whey and take everything else in powder/ tablet. Very convenient shake and for me, does not taste bad at all!
I can't comment on the impact on muscle mass or development at this stage but I've been taking it for a week and the main thing I've noticed is the way it fills you up. I feel my appetite is kept at bay not only throughout the morning but the rest of the day. It doesn't taste particularly pleasant compared to the impact protein but I found that the protein wasn't really filling me up (I have a big appetite). Whether I will see a difference in strength, I don't know right now.Goes Well With:Better with milk but this will slow down the absorption so best to take with water as I'm told.
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
