AfterShock Recovery Reviews

  • Builds Muscle
  • Good Taste
  • Fast Recovery
  • Awesome Post Workout
  • Unique Flavor
  • Good Mass Gainer
    Just finished my first tub after buying it a while back when Prosource had their 6lb tubs for $30 when they are regularly $60 (not sure if it was a mistake on their part or what). I'm pretty sure it was Meuth who posted about it on the forums so I would like to thank him for bringing this to my attention so I could try this wonderful product for cheap. I'm also pretty sure there are a couple different Aftershock blends but I am reviewing the newer blend (Aftershock Tactical Post-workout Catalyst) because I could only find one option for Aftershock.

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Here's a quick summary of the Profile:

    34g Protein (Whey)
    35g Carbs
    6g BCAAs
    8g Prop. Blend of Creatine and Glutamine
    1.5g Joint Support Blend

    This has definitely been my favorite Postworkout Supplement that I have used. I think it has helped me in my quest for more mass and weight and it gives me great recovery with little to no soreness. I really enjoy having the Protein and Carbs in one powder so I didn't have to combine 2 different supplements. I feel like they were in good quantities too because I usually aim for about 30g Protein and the 35g of Carbs didn't fill me up too much so I could eat a big Postworkout meal about an hour after taking it. The only part of this product that I didn't see any effect from was the Joint Support because as I got heavier in my lifts, my joints still felt a little achy until I added Super Cissus. I wasn't disappointed in this though because I didn't buy this product for joint support but for muscle recovery and its Protein/Carbs.

    Taste: 7/10
    I had the Fruit Punch and it tasted a bit like the Chewable Chalky Flinstones vitamins. Sometimes it was a little hard to choke down after a hard workout (I feel this way about most Postworkout shakes though).

    Mixability: 7/10
    It mixed pretty well with the exception of foam and some sediment at the bottom of my bottle. Shaking it up again before drinking it fixed the sediment problem though.

    Value: 8/10
    As stated earlier, I got this for a great price but its regular price sounds expensive but considering what you're getting, it's pretty good. A $60 6lb tub gives 33 servings that lasted me about 2 months when I exercised every other day. So it would cost about $30 a month which is pretty standard if you ask me.

    Overall: 9/10
    I highly recommend this product to anyone searching for a good Postworkout recovery supplement. I regret not buying more than one tub when it was so cheap on prosource so if you find it for a good price, try stocking up because I'm sure you will enjoy it. I'm going to try ON's 2:1:1 recovery next due to its great reviews and decide which will become a part of my bulking stack.
