Hydro Builder vs. other Recovery Drinks?
« on: April 05, 2011, 08:16:14 PM »
I've been on the prowl for a good recover drink to get, (or whether or not to stick to my hydrowhey with chocolate milk) and I came across Hydrobuilder.

Now I know it is not a recovery drink per se, but it's instructions and labeling did suggest as much, and from studying the nutrition facts it does have some pretty good ingredients for recovery. I tried to find reviews, but it doesn't seem anyone has made any yet.

So my main question is, would Hydrobuilder make a good recovery drink? Or should I keep looking at getting Afterglow, Aftershock, or 2:1:1 Recovery? Or could I make my own recovery blend by using my current mix of Hydrowhey, Chocolate Milk, and add Glutamine powder to it?

Thanks in advance,
Rob

2:1:1 recovery is good, xtend is also a good one to look into. Hydro builder is so much more than recovery drink, so of you want everything all in one, them go with hydro builder, but if you want just recovery, there's better out there

2:1:1 is my favorite post workout supplement followed by Aftershock. I'll be starting a sponsored tub of HydroBuilder in the near future.

From an ingredient perspective, the Hydrobuilder looks promising with a multi-stage protein blend as well as a few other goodies. It's ideal for those that like adding their own post workout carbs.

Thanks everyone. I'm looking at getting a recovery drink this weekend, looks like 2:1:1 might be a good way to go!

You can mix Optimum Whey with skim milk if you are looking for a effective post workout drink and you're on a budget.

Just make sure to add in your own carb source as the only ones you'll get from this combo are from lactose and they're hardly ideal for post workout glycogen replenishment.
