Review: MaxiNutrition ProMax Milk
That's exactly the thinking behind products like ProMax Milk; convenience is key to avoid the temptation to shirk good recovery.
I've been keeping a stock of ProMax Milk close to hand, so that when I get back from a ride and have forgotten to make a shake before I leave, I've got something quick to kick-start the recovery process.
Made from UHT milk and whey protein isolate, these little bottles contain a significant 30 grams of high quality protein as well as a multitude of BCAAs. They're not too high in sugar and they're fat free. They taste pretty good too. In effect, they're a protein shake that is pre-mixed with milk.
On the days when I do shirk recovery, I can certainly feel it the next day on the bike. Proper nutrition is key and if products like this will help make it more convenient, then they're worth considering.
