I had been hearing about Progenex for over a year. I never bought a bag because it’s one of the highest priced protein powders on the market. Also, by reading the label I just couldn’t see the difference between Progenex and the protein that I was already taking. But after hearing about a friend of mine at Stoneway CrossFit taking the Progenex 30 day challenge, and loving the results, I thought I should give it a chance to wow me.
How did Progenex Recovery work…
I purchased the Belgian Chocolate flavor in the single serving packets.
Now if you follow my training, you know that I usually train twice a day (this could be for an Ironman event, or just to get better at CrossFit). Every second of downtime I get is focused on recovery. In fact, as I’m writing this review, I’m sipping water and eating almonds, with my legs elevated.
The honest truth is, I didn’t really expect much but another protein powder from Progenex. I’ve tried a lot of different protein powders over the years, and the only difference seemed to be taste.
But… back to the review…
I dumped a single serving packet into my shaker bottle, and to my surprise… I felt a difference after the very first Recover packet. We’re not talking about a huge difference. I felt like my body recovered faster from my morning workout, which made my evening workout better. Usually my evening workout is lower intensity because my body is dragging, but this was different…
After one serving I obviously wasn’t sold… Maybe I ate more that day (although unlikely). So, as a test, I staggered the days that I took the Progenex (M/W/F, etc). The result was, I felt better (more recovered) on the days that I took it.
I continued taking the protein for about 4 weeks. I felt the freshest (is that a word…) that I’d felt in months. And the only thing I changed was the protein powder I was taking.
In conclusion, I’m sold… you gotta try this stuff
I’ve been out of Progenex Recovery for about a week and am feeling slower on the recovery for sure. My second workout of the day is just slogging. This stuff works, and I will definitely be getting more!
Recovery is now my number one protein powder choice. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to increase their performance or get into shape. This stuff is simply the best that I’ve taken.
You might have noticed that I have links floating around this post. Here’s why… I was so impressed that Progenex actually made a difference in my recovery speed, I contacted the company to ask how I could get involved with them and spread the word. After speaking with them and understanding how we could work together, they gave me the opportunity to share with my AllAroundJoe readers. So, if you’d like to support the AllAroundJoe brand please click one of the links before you buy. Thanks, I really appreciate it!
