Optimum Nutrition is seriously the best brand out there in my opinion. They are really expensive, but they have some amazing products like this 2-1-1 recovery blend. What is great about this product is it contains fast digesting carbs (sugar) and protein. Both are extremely necessary after really tough workouts. I really like this because of those two things, and the taste is good as well. I would recommend this product to just about anyone.
Protei/recver& bcaas mixes easy taste awsome is a great post workout supp also easy on your stomach you don't feel fool or bloated i love this one.
I truly liked the way I felt while taking this product. I would wake up the next day significantly less sore and more ready/wiling to **** the gym. I truly felt like the muscle recovery was very significant while on this products my muscles just felt better the next day. I have taken a lot of optimal nutrition products and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed. I would truly recommend this to anyone looking to try and cut down on soreness and get the need nutrients after an intense workout.
Overall, this is just an average product at best. It gets the job done, but nothing more. Like many of Optimum Nutrition's products, this is just nothing to write home about. I don't think this is an essential supplement to begin with if you already have protein or BCAAs, so it's not on the top of my list.
I started taking this recovery supplement in college when I was an athlete and was just not recovering from workouts, classes and life. I immediately started to feel better upon taking it. I wasn't as sore, better focus and overall I had more energy. Love this product!
I've been using this 2:1:1 recovery product for a while and it seems to do just what it says...
In this protein, 2 scoops gets 35 g of protein 70g of carbs and over 430 cal. This is a border line gainer. Most gainers are too heavy for me after work outs. The protein also mixes well but the taste is only ok. The the best I ever had.
I also use Optimum Nutrition for my protein drink, both the protein and the recovery drink work very well for me.
2:1:1 Recovery is a great way to hit macros in my anabolic window after an intense workout. It tastes good and is convenient for me because my gym carries it in their restaurant. Definitely seen an increase in my muscle mass since I've began taking it. Definitely would recommend!
This product is awesome it's not too thick or light. You feel good after your workout, it's perfect just mind what u eat because it has high carbs.
This is great protein/ recovery powder with the essential amino acids. I have only. Been using it for a short while and I am impressed. Definite buy!
Great taste, does not make you feel full, no stomach issues from using this product. I'm putting on weight but I don't know if it's from this, creatine, both??? I like it though. Worth trying.
This stuff is amazing!!! Tastes/mixes well (no chunky debris) and I'm not much of a fan of chocolate...recovery time is fantastic, feel like I could lift the very next day after a tough workout..value is also pretty good, and as far as post workout drinks, hits all the necessary BCAA's and proteins/carbs I need. Excellent product for the price, as well as for the effectiveness!!
I really love this stuff. I have taken different post workout drinks and this is by far my favorite. Taste is awesome and the stuff mixes really nicely. I love that they take out the guess work by giving you the perfect ratios 2:1:1, which in return gives you optimum nutrition hence the name of the brand. I really like ON products. They are a solid brand that has been around for years and is well respected by the bodybuilding community. No overhyped products with bogus claims, just straight up quality! The only thing that I add to this is creatine monohydrate.
