Protein Recovery is the ultimate drink for after exercise and the Pro's choice. The whey isolate used in Protein Recovery is a high quality source of protein. Protein contributes to muscle growth and maintenance. Protein Recovery also contains carbohydrate. After exercise, your muscles are often low in glycogen (carbohydrate).
Protein Recovery gives similar benefits to 4:1 EnergySource, but there are a number of key differences. Protein Recovery has a higher protein content. It can also be mixed with milk or water, whereas 4:1 EnergySource can only be mixed with water. Some sports drinks can be acidic. Protein Recovery mixed with cold milk is neutral and it can make a pleasant change, especially if you are training hard for many hours a day.

Have been using this recovery drink ever since I started cycling ( 8-10years) faultless product to me
Great value pack, doing exactly as written on the label - recovery after long rides or exercises.
Tried a lot of recovery drinks and this is the best in my opinion. Chocolate is a great treat at bed-time! Mixes easily and works out at good value with the 1.6kg tub.
Works well after a ride or workout, no aching limbs the next day. Chocolate best with milk, fruit flavour good with water. Best used straight after workout. Two & a half scoops in 750ml bottle dissolves well. Very good product
Not used recovery drinks before so I am still evaluating their benefits. I bought this one and the SIS Strawberry as a comparison. At the moment I am preferring this one because it seems to mix better but both taste fine. I mix the drink in a shaker in the ratio 50:50 (water:semi-skimmed milk) which definitely tastes better than just water. The price on Probikekit is good and I may well be back here for more once my supplies run out if I find it beneficial - I want to try chocolate next time!
I have used many different cycling products, gels, bars, recovery bars and drinks. This recovery drink from High5 is the only one I really look forward to during my training days. I mix the chocolate powder with semi skimmed milk in a high5 bottle (2/3), shake well, fill up the bottle with ice cubes and shake again. In my experience, this makes the best taste. Using the powder, my body can endure five to six training sessions a week, making it possible to skip a rest day once or twice a week. Moreover, it is nice to look forward to come home after a long training session and have a hig5 recovery drink. I also have a pack of high5 recovery bars, but I clearly prefer this drink compared to the bars.
Excellent value for money quickly delivered and well packed A+++
Have previously used the chocolate version which tastes great with or without milk, this tastes a bit watery without milk. In terms nutrition I find this product to be excellent. Service from PBK was also excellent.
Great product, great price from ProBikeKit and excellent delivery. Thank you
Having used up all my SIS Rego which I have used for the past two years, I saw probikekit had this product on special offer. Initially I added two tubs to the order and took one out before completing the purchase. Delivery was prompt, even more than prompt, as it came the next day even though I did not ask for next day delivery. So after a training ride I made up my first shake. Whereas with Rego there is no requirement to use milk, I always did, reducing the amount of powder slightly. With the High5 they recommend 400mL of semi-skimmed to three scoops 66g of poweder. I found the powder mixed with the milk much easier than the SIS and after a few shakes had dissolved very well. It does not make as thick a shake as the Rego and the taste of the high5 was not as concentrated. However this was banana / vanilla versus SIS chocolate flavour, and I like chocolate. At first, I was a little disappointed in the constituency and taste comparison stakes, but having used the High5, 3 or 4 times now my taste-buds have adapted and now prefer the high5, but in chocolate flavour :) A just wish I had ordered three tubs, not one.
easy to mix, pleasant taste (banana/vanilla),easy on the stomach seems to work OK, usually mix with milk and drink before bed ,seems to ease the aches next day ,not completely, its not a miracle worker but allows you to train the next day...B )
Great product at a great price - what's not to like...
A trustworthy product at an affordable price!
Managed to pick up a tub on a BikeRadar discount so great value for what I paid. You get a much higher protein concentration in many other whey protein isolate products at a similar (full) price though, so at a more regular price I'd go for one of those products with a carb snack over this. Does taste relatively good though!!!
Lovely stuff. I could live on it!
I've used a lot of different brands of recovery drinks over the years - this is amongst the best. Tastes good and dissolves particularity well so you don't get horrible lumps and the mixer is easy to clean afterwards.
Actually this is the first recovery drink that I use but I am really satisfied with it as the other hi5 products especialy 4*1 and iso gels. I already finished 2 jars. It works good after heavy weight training, long bike rides and runs. Also I drink when I have a early morning workout. I mix it with milk and happy with the chocalate flavor.
I have always doubted whether us mere mortals needed recovery drinks, but guess what this actually works. I find my legs feel much less heavy the morning after a workout than usual.
Totally agree with steveo, that's indeed an awesome recovery from tough workouts, be it hills or training sessions gym/spinning etc. And tastes great without nasty ingredients. What's not to like?.
Tried this recently for the first time and highly recommend it. I find after a particularly tough work out it really helps with recovery (2 hours climbing hills, tough gym session or running). No soreness or tiredness the following day. The chocolate is particularly tasty without being overly sweet and sickly. I mix with water and it tastes really good and quite milk shaky even tho I'm using water. I use 3 scoops and it works for me but I know some people go with 2 scoops. Have also tried the banana which came as pre-packed free sample which said mix with milk, no option for mixing with water according to instructions. Anyway mixed it with water regardless and it was a little bit watery albeit still very drinkable but not as nice as the chocolate. So far this week I've done just short of 100 miles in 3 days on the bike whilst still working a nightshift plus further miles running - result - I feel bright as a button and ready to go out again later today! This is a great price as well you will not get cheaper.
