CNP Professional's Pro-Recover post work out drink contains a blend of high glycemic (fast acting carbohydrates) and fast acting proteins in the form of hydrolysed whey and whey isolate providing a high concentration of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) that aid muscle repair and growth. Pro-Recover post work out drink also contains antioxidants that also help to limit muscle damage caused by intense exercise.
Pro-Recover post work out drink is ideal to take after most forms of exercise and sports, (weight training, track and field, power-lifting, strongman, boxing, football, rugby etc). Consume Pro-Recover immediately after a workout or any form of intense exercise to assist optimum recovery. Place 2 scoops in a shaker bottle, simply add 400 - 500ml water for the perfect post workout drink. Pro-Recover contains:
Glucose - Glucose elevates the blood sugar levels very quickly, which causes the pancreas to release the hormone insulin. Insulin's function is to regulate the blood sugar levels by removing the high sugar and Pro-Recovers fast acting protein's. These are taken out of the blood (with the sugar) and are delivered to the muscles where they are required.
Hydrolysed Whey - The most digestible whey protein (hydrolysed), which is partially pre-digested for better absorption allowing the body to use it's complete range of amino acids for faster absorption and recovery.
Whey Isolate - A higher percentage form of protein (over 90%).
Hydroylsed and Isolate whey are both fast acting proteins which means they are absorbed very quickly which is ideal for post workout meals.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) - One of the functions is that being a powerful natural Antioxidant. This means, it helps the body rid itself of harmful cell damaging 'Free Radicals' that arise from intense forms of exercise.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol) - Vitamin E works best with Vitamin C and has powerful natural Antioxidant properties assisting the body to rid itself of harmful cell damaging 'Free Radicals' that arise from intense forms of exercise. It also maintains a healthy blood supply enabling the body to distribute nutrients (proteins) to the damaged muscles for fast recovery.

I've been training 5x per week plus cardio and acrobatics, and I've seen very nice gains in just a couple weeks. I've recovered quite nicely to consistently train hard.
Foams VERY easily (can't just shake it like you can with whey unless you want the foam to go craaazyyyy) and it's hard to not have it clump up without silly foam.
I have chocolate flavor and the taste is pretty good in my opinion.
Will go you a pretty long way and the price is not too bad, especially with the current deal of 500g free glutamine :)
Might just be me, but I've had some excess gas since I started using, which isn't quite so cool. But other than that, I've been pretty ok"

"I train 5 days a week, and when I know I've had a hard session, 1-2 scoops of this will definitely make it possible to train the next day.
If you are on a calorie controlled diet, this is probably not the best thing to take, as you are looking at around 300cals in a recommended dose. However if you aren't dieting, then this the stuff for you.
I only use 1 scoop of strawberry with 200-300ml of skimmed milk, as I use pre-workout stuff with some BCAA's in, then eat something protein rich about 30mins-1 hour later.
This is absolutely delicious with milk btw, if you dont mind adding an extra 100cals to the shake, lol."

"If you are look for a good recovery product and staying off creatine then this is the one!
I can tell when i havn't been taking this becuase the aches creep up on me."
Qdo you know haw many mg of bcaa is contained in 1 serving?
Unfortunately CNP do not offer an independent breakdown of amino acids so you would have to contact CNP direct for more information.
QHow long after a workout should i wait before taking this supplement? I've read that you should wait about 30mins before taking protein and simple carbs. I usually drink mine right after i've finish my workout. I just wanted to clear this up. Thanks.
The sooner after training, the better. There is no good reason to wait. Not sure why anyone would suggest otherwise??
QI currently use CNP pro mass after work outs, as it has a higher protein content and has a large carb content, as this shakes lower in protein, I was wondering why its recommened as a post work out over pro mass? Also Id like to find a protein power around 40g protein 20g carbs, in a large 5kg tub, any suggestions :)?
The difference between the two is pro recover is designed to help replenish glycogen levels which have been depleted during a workout. This is supplied by simple sugars in the form of sucrose, glucose which you will find in most post workout products, as these have the quickest effect on insulin levels and help to transport protein into the muscle. In terms of protein to carb ratio of 40:20 CNP's Pro MR is a meal replacement formula which gives you all the different types of multivitamins along with a 42:19 ratio which is almost exactly what you are asking for.
QNone of the carbs are complex.Is this a quick post workout absorption thing ?
Yes, you don't want slow carbs after training, you want them to be broken down quick to replenish the muscle ASAP and to jack up insulin to increase protein and creatine uptake!
Qim not too keen on the sugar level on this.. isnt it a bad thing taking in this much sugar in one straight go?
Sugar post traininig is unlikely to cause any fat gain and is very useful to repleneshing nutrients (like glycogen). It will also increasee insulin to enhance recovery and improve amino acid and creatine uptake into the muscles.
