Recovery 911 is their post-workout supplement. It has pretty much everything you look for in a post-workout shake.
It's a complete profile; containing 35g of protein, 22g of carbohydrates, 3g creatine-monohydrate, & other various vitamins & minerals. Some ingredients that caught my eye were the Vitamins A, C, & D. I'm not sure I understand the presence of Vitamin A, but 88IUs does not seem like nearly enough to make a difference. 700mcg of Vitamin C seems about right. Vitamin D seems to severely under-dosed as well, as 7IUs is next to nothing IMO considering you can buy Vitamin D supplements that come in 2000IU soft gels. So something amiss here.
Altogether it isn't bad, but perhaps a little under-dosed in some areas.
The good thing about Recovery 911 is no prop blends.
What's troubling is that the label claims it contains Vitamin E, but I can't find it anywhere on the nutrition label. It's either a typo for Vitamin D, or they got some explaining to do...
More foaming issues, thusly more quality questions. Recovery 911's foam was particularly troublesome, to the point where gave up trying to finish up a dose once I hit the foam.
It's not as quick mixing as MGN would have you believe, & it will take a good effort to mix it up.
I received the "orange" flavour, & it tasted somewhat like orange.
Not the amazing taste MGN claims, but it's OK. It's tolerable.
I'll be honest, I got better recovery from ON's Platinum Hydro Builder & MHP's Dark Matter. Granted it is better than taking nothing, but I don't feel it's anything special.
I usually took 2scoops (1serv) post-workout, after all my workouts.
I wasn't too sore after my heavy days, & I got my legs back under me pretty quickly after my Martial Arts sessions. However, since I've been off of it I haven't really noticed too much of a difference in recovery rates.
I will say it works, but at best "average."
According to the SR price finder thing, this runs between $45-$50...for 19 servings. However, fellow Expert Reviewer Reinger reported it at $40, so it's not an utter fail.
Undoubtedly, you can spend just as much money buying a protein powder & creatine of your choice, & perhaps a carbohydrate supplement. You may even pay more than $50 if you go top shelf. However, you will get better quality & more servings.
I just really cant get behind the price tag I'm seeing, considering that I can pay $40 for Platinum Hydro Builder or Dark Matter & get more servings & better quality ingredients. I know that I may be comparing apples to oranges in the case of Platinum Hydro Builder, but in the past several months these are the only post-workout recovery supplements I've used.
A lot of Cs and a D don't tally up to a high score. I really didn't like this product at all, & I'm having a hard time looking at this product in a good light.
It does work to an extent, in that it's better than nothing. However, when compared to other options I quickly find myself moving past Recovery 911 to other products. I would say this is worth a try, but I really can't say that as I don't believe that at this point.
Overall I think this was a decent product whcih is headed in the right direction. With a few tweaks it could be on point. If your going to pay for a post recovery supplement, the profile needs to be dead on.
Recovery 911 comes close, but slightly missed the mark in a few areas.
I was given the orange flavor. The taste wasnt terrible and was definitely a change from your usual chocolate or vanilla flavor. Slight after taste that I had trouble getting over. Half way through the tub I was a little over the orange, but that may just have been my preference to more traditional flavors.
Thick and creamy, mixed relatively well as far as sediment. But the foam, ohhh the foam. I had trouble keeping the product from bloating out the top of my shaker. No matter how much water I added, the foam would appear. Made it somewhat difficult to pound down and may have attributed to the after taste. I would let it air out and swish it around constantly to convince the foam to subside.
Again, MGN is on the right track, but a few tweaks may allow for more effectiveness.
Whey Protien Isolate, Glucose, Maltodexterin, BCAA complex, Creatine (Mono) L-Gluatamine, Taurine, Tyrosine, Vitamin E, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sucralose.
Doesn't sound too bad, and its not, its more the quantities and ratios, or lack there of.
Vitamin profile minimal
BCAA: 10g 2:1:1
Creatine Mono 3G
Alpha Lipoic Acid: 200 mg
35g of WPI is sufficient and the BCAA complex is enticing. I would prefer a slightly higher carb ratio and blend. I would also prefer a different creatine source than monohydrate. If you are to go that route, any thing less than 5g seems insufficient.
19 servings in a 3.3lb tub. Average cost $40 +.
If your paying any more than two dollars a serving for a recovery supplement, all aspects should hit the mark. This is where MGN fell just a bit shy.
It no doubt works, but I believe that the profile could have slightly been better, rendering the product more effective. A few bumps in the proflie and it would be comparable to some of the more favored recovery supplements.
I would recomend this if you can find it on sale, or are looking for a change of pace in the post workout category. A few changes in the profile and if the foam condition were to be rendered, I would definitley give it another run.
