Protein First Recovery Drink is designed for athletes who prioritize gains in lean muscle and body fat reduction. Protein First's main ingredient is a high quality, gently processed whey protein concentrate. Whey protein is superior to other proteins post-workout as it is rapidly absorbed and has an excellent amino acid profile ideal for muscle growth and repair. The ratio of protein to carbohydrate (1:2) is significantly higher than other recovery drinks catering to endurance athletes. The quickly digesting carbohydrates promote recovery by replenishing glycogen, lowering cortisol and producing a favorable insulin response. The carbohydrate in Protein First will not exceed post-workout recovery needs nor spoil a low-carbohydrate diet.

User reviews

Best protein/carb mix I have found (I used to use 2:1:1 Recovery from Optimum Nutrition). Compared to 2:1:1, Mike's Mix is all-natural, tastes better, digests easier, and is comparably priced. I use it pre- and post-workout. I workout first thing in the morning (5am) so it is hard to find actual food to eat pre-workout that will give me enough energy for the workout, but won't leave me feeling bloated or heavy - I don't like working out on an empty stomach. For the last few months, I have been drinking 1 scoop of Mike's with the Vega Sport pre-workout and 2 scoops of Mike's post-workout; I couldn't be more satisfied with the product. For reference, I have been doing P90x while using this product. FYI - Mike's Mix all-natural whey protein is great too.
Effective and tasty post workout supplement that contains wholesome ingredients.
This stuff tastes great and performs well. I am very happy with this product and will be ordering more when it's time. I've never used Mike's Mix products before, and this item has earned my loyalty with it's quality ingredients, reasonable pricing, tastiness and effectiveness.
The flavor of this is nothing like the original Mike's Mix. (I prefer the Mike's Mix taste.) Other than the taste, I have no issues with this product.
Seems to work great, mixes easily in a blender bottle. This is whey protein with a few other ingredients. Unlike some other products and manufacturers, this container is filled almost completely, so you are getting your money's worth for sure. I'm now a fan of Mike's products.
I have tried Mike's Mix chocolate before plenty of times and loved it but this is far from the original. The taste was not chocolate and I will never buy again. It was without a doubt the worst after workout drink I have ever tasted.
This is not as yummy as Mikes original. I think it was an attempt to make it more natural sweet and less sugary formula. It's also very clumpy and does not mix into water or milk very well. I like Mikes products but I think they may have missed the mark here.
