Review: Multipower Fit Protein Lite

2-Fit_Protein_Vanille_Lite

I recently got sent some of the brand new Multipower Fit Protein Lite pre made shakes, in my favourite flavour…Strawberry! Thanks guys at Multipower! I tried slipping them into my post workout nutrition routine, and asI have never really used pre-mixed shakes before… it was a first for me.

I used them over a few days… as did the wife and we both really enjoyed them. The Lite versions kept my calorie intake down with a good 80% less carbohydrate compared to the regular Multipower product, but with a good 40g of protein. The shake is Gluten-free, Aspartame-free and Lactose free.

The good levels of protein in each shake mean they packed in that much needed post workout protein, which aided recovery and promoted the growth of lean tissue. The product itself comes pre-mixed, which does make it much easier and tends to give a smoother shake. It also has the added benefit of no shakers to wash, which on those low time days can be a massive benefit of the pre-mixed stuff!

This is another great product from Multipower and I think it would make a great addition to anyones nutritional intake!

Review: Multipower Re-Charge

ReChargeDrink

As many of you know the guys at Multipower are often sending me products to review and comment on. Recently they sent me a tub of their Re-Charge product. So as usual I have tried it on myself first and then got some of my clients to give it a try and give me some feedback.

Re-charge is designed to be used post-workout as a recovery drink. This is designed to be used instead of a shake (with a shake being a more like a milkshake) this is more of a juice type consistency. Making it a good alternative for those who do not like the shake type products.

The product is easy to mix in a shaker and each 45g serving creates a 500ml post workout drink that has a nice smooth consistency, without those sandy bits!

It contains a good 4:1 mix of Carbohydrate to protein, giving you the optimal chance to make some good gains and best of all recover fast! It also contains a good serving of L-Glutamine to really boost our recovery.

These drinks are not always my thing and it would take a lot to tempt me away from my shake based products but a number of my clients who are used to using the energy based drinks found this product much more palatable compared to shakes. So Re-charge is definitely a product I would have in my nutrition armoury!

Review: Multipower NOxtreme

Over the years I have tried a number of different pre-workout products that claim to boost energy levels, concentration, focus and ultimately your work output.  This normally translates into better gains, as within reason, the bigger volume of work that you get done in your training sessions the better the gains you will experience.

Recently both myself and a group of willing students on a personal training course I was teaching gave NOxtreme from Multipower Pro a go prior to a gym based session. The session was based around advanced lifting systems, and promised to be a challenging one.   The 908g tub sent me easily gave the 15 of us a good sized helping with a bit left over for me to use in my next 5 or so sessions.

NOxtreme contains a number of different compounds that are both anabolic (muscle building) and ergogenic (performance enhancing) aids.  Multipower-pro had sent me the Berry Blast flavour that went down well with all the guys, we threw it onto our shakers and mixed it up.  We found that the powder mixed well with water and produced a smooth and good tasting drink.

Off we went to the gym and after a good warm up we started to work some of the different resistance base training systems.  Now, this practical session is an intensive one where all students are expected to put 110% in and feel the hell that they will be putting their clients through!

The mixture of creatine and PTC help to gave a massive cellular level power boost, with the addition of beta-alanine to help buffer the lactic acid produced during intense exercise.  This combination proved to be useful with all but one student finding that they felt that they got a much greater volume of work done in the session that hey felt they would have done if they had not used NOxtreme.  That is always a good thing, as we all know more work generally leads to more gains!

NOxtreme also contains a good mixture of Turaine, Guarana and Caffeine that gives you a massive concentration boost and also has the added benefit of helping to stimulate the central nervous system.

On the whole I do not recommend the use of these type of products on a daily basis or to be used prior to every training session.  But on those days when you need a boost, or when looking to bust a plateau then this is an ideal product to use to boost energy and increase performance.

Review: Multipower Iso Drink

The guys over at Multipower sent me over some of their Iso Drink to try, I have been using these types of powder-based products for a number of years both for myself and with clients before and during long workouts.

Iso Drink is an isotonic powder that you easily mix in a shaker with water to create the perfect in workout boost to your energy and hydration levels.  Mixing the product is easy and the 35g serving creates 500ml of drink that tastes smooth, without all those annoying grainy bits often found in drinks of this nature.   I personally enjoyed the orange flavour but the powder does come in a number of different varieties.

Besides the standard carbohydrate found in these drinks this product also contains a mix of l-carnitine, minerals and BCAAs.  This helps to improve energy levels and keep you going for longer!

Iso Drink is the perfect partner for anybody who likes their endurance based sport’s. During recent endurance training session I used a number of clients as guinea pigs…. They always enjoy trying a new product!  Both my clients and myself found that they got a better overall volume of work done using this product to boost energy levels half way through their training as opposed to just using water.

If you’re a endurance based person and your looking for a way to boost your energy levels in the later parts of a training session, I would definitely recommend that you add Multipower’s Iso Drink into your nutritional program!

Review: Multipower Creatine

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Hi All,

I decided to have a go at using creatine as part of my pre workout nutritional routine, I decided to have a go at using Multipower 100% pure creatine monohydrate.  I had not used creatine for a number of years (at least 2) and had completely forgotten then benefits it can give.  Last time I took a creatine supplement I found it to be a little gritty and not the nicest thing to down before an intense workout…. I am glad to say this was not the case with the Multipower product I tried!

Creatine_500g

So lets have a look at what is in the creatine powder, it is made with Creapure monohydrate (which is suitable for veggies).  The powder itself is very fine allowing it to mix very well with your pre-workout drink.  The package suggested that I take 3g daily, which I took pre-workout.  I found using this pre-workout to be very effective and gave me the boost I needed during those harder sessions.

The science behind the use of creatine is based on the fact that creatine is used in your muscles to form an energy rich compound that helps energy production during periods of highly intense exercise.  The use of creatine has been noted to help users sustain high intensity exercise for a longer period of time allowing you get performance improvement benefits from the increase workload. It has also been noted that using creatine can help to speed recovery between sets, again allowing a greater workload to be carried out.  This helps you to experience some good strength gains!

I found the Multipower Creatine to give me a good boost during my workouts and also a good tasting, easy to use supplement.  For all those of you out there who use creatine I would definitely recommend the Multipower brand and for those who have not yet tried adding creatine to their nutritional routine, give it a go!

As always please comment and tweet!
