Our Progenex Recovery showed up a little over a week ago and this is our groups review and take on it. The product showed up in a zip lock style bag and at that point we rationed it off into two scoops into zip lock snack packs, single servings. The Mixed Fitness Artists in our group then got a weeks worth and we made sure the workouts were going to be tough as we wanted to really test the Recovery. Outside of our daily WOD's the various Artists will run, cycle, weight lift, or even do another WOD. All of the Artists adhere to a "Modified Paleo" diet and will have an occasional cheat meal, usually on the weekend. The group involved in the review range from 22 to 52 years of age and are all full time workers who squeeze their workouts and Mixed Fitness into lunch breaks, evenings, or weekends. For this review the Recovery was taken immediately following any of these workouts, within 20 minutes if not sooner. The taste was excellent to most with the exception of a few and that just though it tasted "ok" and this was only that they do not like dark chocolate. There are currently three flavors to choose from so for whatever your taste preferences may be there is a flavor to meet your needs. The water added varied from 8-12 ounces and the protein mixed with ease with no chalky texture or clumping. This was in our experience the easiest mixing protein to date anyone in our group has sampled. Now down to what really matters, the results. Here are some quotes from the Mixed Fitness Artists involved in the review.
Kevin Penland cited "I've done multiple WODs in one day and after doing the same workout two weeks in a row my time has lowered substantially"
Ron DeMaagd's thought is "If your gonna train hard every day you have to recover every day, Progenex works"
John Stufkosky shared "Progenex works. I am on my feet all day without any time to sit down and after a tough WOD the rest of the day is easier"
Tucker Birch told us "It allowed me to come strong into every workout, without the muscle fatigue carried over from the previous days training. And best of all, no bloat like I experienced from other protein powders"
Kelly Hufford commented that "Progenex heals me after long and grueling workouts"
Joel Forseth stated "From now on when recovery is crucial I will be using Progenex"
Melissa Forseth said "I did a three mile morning run, a lunchtime WOD, then even had the umph to do a bonus evening WOD while supplementing with the Progenex Recovery, incredible!"
Overall result is us here at MixedFitnessArtist.com plan on continuing the use of this great product. When it comes time to replace your current protein, look to Progenex Recovery.
Rowan Minnion from Blonyx sent me a 30 day supply of their Blonyx HMB + Creatine for review. Upon the first day of getting the supplement I did a max muscle up video and recorded a personal best of 13, this would be the strength portion of the supplement review. Right from the start I was anxious as I had read great info and reviews from Blonyx and I wanted to see for myself. The taste was not good, I talked with Rowan and this is because there is only two ingredients in the supplement (HMB and Creatine) and nothing artificial to sweeten the taste. I liked the fact of there only being the two ingredients and was glad the company kept it this way, and the fix was easy as I would just add the small scoop to whatever juice or protein shake I was having, problem solved! Doing the Mixed Fitness Artist workouts are demanding and I did notice that I was less sore then prior to adding any extra HMB or Creatine to my system. I felt great over the past 30 days during all of the workouts and was able to perform at a high level. I did add some weight, I imagine water retention? The added weight was not a factor as my double unders, running time, bodyweight exercises, etc maintained or improved. The best performance example is at end of 30 days I added 2 more muscle ups to my previous personal record. Overall, if any athlete is looking to add any HMB or Creatine to their supplement supply I am confident that Blonyx HMB + Creatine is the best product you can get.
