Optimum Nutrition 2:1:1 Recovery
No Longer Available
Refuel And Replenish Hard-Working Muscles!What you eat, when you eat it, and how much you eat has a dramatic effect on your performance. But, not all nutrient combinations work equally well. Our 2:1:1 Recovery is based on the latest science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and leads to better results than the use of larger amounts of any single type. Hydrolyzed whey, micellar casein, and egg albumen proteins provide immediate and sustained amino acid delivery for repair and rebuilding while the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs in 2:1:1 Recovery helps refuel and replenish hard-working muscles. And with 5 grams of added BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine to Valine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, theres no question that 2:1:1 Recovery is an indispensable part of every serious athletes routine.

Not Effective at allThis may be an age reason why it didn't work for me. I'm in my mid 40s and I don't see any improvements in the quickness of recovery at all. It's taking the same amount of time for my muscles to recover when I wasn't using this product. I've been using this for a month now and the results are negligible at best.
Recovery and Post Workout resultsYou definitely feel your body feeding off of this product post workout. I also experienced accelerated recovery times after particularly engaging/ strenuous workouts.
Great productmy only wish is that ON would make a bigger container because this stuff is great
Pretty Awesome!This stuff taste amazing ! It is the best tasting chocolate protein I've had. It has great macros for a good price.
Better than protein onlyThis stuff worked much better than just straight protein. Could tell a definite difference in recovery time (primarily in the lessened intensity of delayed onset muscle soreness). I wish it came in a bigger size but I can get two tubs of it for not much more than a 5lb tub of the whey protein.
best recovery supplement.Like all their products Optimum Nutrition did a wonderful job creating 2:1:1. This by far is the best post workout product I have ever had. The only downfall is this product only comes in 3.7lbs. So for those who work out 5+ days a week you will need to load up on this. I gave it four stars because it only came in 2lbs. However if Optimum Nutrition made a 5-10 pound of this stuff. I would give
Everything you need in a post workoutThis product has the essentials you need after your done shredding in the gym. High quality protiens carbs and sugar. Its much more convienient to mix this product after a workout than to eat all that you would need to equal everything in this. Plus the Chocolate tastes great!
Great Value Great resultsI use this post work-out as a recovery shake. I have used other "rapid release" shakes before but this one really seems to work well. I have a shorter recovery time I can see quicker results and it tastes delicious. I would recommend this product.
Mango is magnificent!I use this product after running 3 times a weeks. The mango taste is great. After drinking a lot of chocolate flavored powders the mango is a great change. After feeling drained from a workout this helps replenish my body and restores my energy level. I look forward to running knowing that I will be drinking this product afterwards.
Great productGreat post-workout supplement. I've gotten better results in the gym since I started using this instead of just protein. The colossal chocolate tastes amazing.
