How to take:
When should I take PROGENEX Recovery?
Immediately after training.
How often can I take PROGENEX Recovery?
You can take PROGENEX Recovery after every training session. If you are training multiple times in one day, you can take a PROGENEX Recovery shake after each session.
Should I take PROGENEX Recovery on non-training days?
PROGENEX Recovery is specifically designed as a post-training supplement. Taking it on non-training days will not necessarily add additional recovery gains. However, it would increase your high quality protein intake.
Can I take PROGENEX Recovery with PROGENEX More Muscle?
Do I need to add double the water if I take PROGENEX Recovery with PROGENEX More Muscle?
No. You would use the same amount of water as you would if you were taking either PROGENEX Recovery or More Muscle.
Do you recommend mixing Recovery and More Muscle together in one shake?
You can after longer, tougher workouts but it is not necessary on a typical workout. PROGENEX Recovery is typically enough for post-workout.
Can Recovery and More Muscle be taken with carbs?
Yes. You can eat some carbs approximately 15 minutes after consuming a Recovery or More Muscle shake.
Can I sprinkle Recovery or More Muscle on my steel cut oats?
We do not recommend it. You can eat your steel cut oats about 15 minutes after drinking your Recovery or More Muscle shake.
Can I blend fruit or yogurt with my Recovery shake?
Is there an ideal “wait” time before eating solid food after taking a Recovery shake?
We recommend waiting approximately 15 minutes.
I drink a carb/protein drink during my workout, and then take Recovery after I work out. However, it says to take Recovery on an empty stomach. Is my workout drink okay?
Your instructions recommend an additional More Muscle shake first thing in the morning. I’d prefer before bed. Is that okay? Is any other time during the day okay?
Yes, you can take More Muscle before bed instead of first thing in the morning. However, there is a reason that we recommend first thing in the morning: protein deficit. After fasting, your body is experiencing protein deficit. We recommend that you consume protein first thing in the morning for maximum results. You also can take More Muscle as a meal replacement at another time in the day.
I am interested in gaining muscle and losing fat. What is your suggested dosing of each of your products and when?
Two scoops of Recovery immediately after training. You should take two scoops of More Muscle first thing in the morning or right before bed or as a meal replacement at some point during your day. On non-training days, take two scoops of More Muscle first thing in the morning. You can take another More Muscle shake any time during the day, or as a meal replacement.
I usually “load” a scoop of More Muscle and a scoop of Recovery into a Blender bottle and toss into my gym bag. Can I also add water at the same time?
We don’t recommend it. First of all, leakage is messy. More important, the active ingredients in both Recovery and More Muscle do not have a “shelf life.” In other words, they need to be consumed immediately after adding water. That’s why our products do not have any stabilizers or other funky things (have you ever seen the bottom of a container of those ready-to-drink supplements?).
When to take:
What’s the ideal time to take PROGENEX Recovery and PROGENEX More Muscle?
Ideally, take one More Muscle shake first thing in the morning, when your body is experiencing a protein deficit. Then take PROGENEX Recovery after training. If it was a very draining workout and you feel like you need more than add a scoop or two of More Muscle with your Recovery. You can take another More Muscle shake before bed and as a snack between meals.
What should I take on non-training days?
Take one PROGENEX More Muscle shake first thing in the morning. You also can take another shake later in the day as a meal replacement or right before bed. PROGENEX Recovery needs to be taken after each workout.
How would you combine PROGENEX Recovery and PROGENEX More Muscle?
Take PROGENEX Recovery after each training session and PROGENEX More Muscle first thing in the morning. Take an additional More Muscle shake as a snack between meal and/or before bed. On non-training days, do the same, but simply without the PROGENEX Recovery.
What’s in it?:
How is PROGENEX Recovery different from any other whey protein isolate?
PROGENEX Recovery is not simply a WPI, or whey protein isolate. PROGENEX Recovery has been hydrolyzed, or cut, using a proprietary enzymatic process that cuts the protein into tiny peptide sequences that can be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.
What makes PROGENEX More Muscle so special?
Similar to PROGENEX Recovery, PROGENEX More Muscle is specially formulated for fast absorption. PROGENEX More Muscle is powered by Promyosin,™ a whey protein that is significantly refined, or cut, so that it can enter your bloodstream fast. PROGENEX More Muscle is also very high in BCAAs and Glutamine to aid in muscle growth and recovery.
Why is speed of absorption so important?
The faster protein is in your bloodstream, the faster it gets to your muscles, helping to produce the gains you want. It takes up to five hours for whole proteins, such as beef, chicken, or fish, to get into your bloodstream. PROGENEX More Muscle is in your bloodstream in minutes.
I am interested in increasing my protein intake to 3.0 g/kg of desired LBM but I would need to use protein powder to get there. I am concerned with the insulin spikes that whey protein powders give off. I am also interested in losing body fat.
There is a significant additive advantage to consuming mixed carbohydrate and protein supplements immediately post-workout. Your post-workout target should be to both feed existing muscle fibers as well as stimulate satellite muscle cells. (which fuel the greater proportion of muscle growth from exercise). PROGENEX More Muscle does both. Here are a couple of studies that you may be interested in: Disassociation between the effects of amino acids and insulin on signaling, ubiquitin ligases, and protein turnover in human muscle. http://ajpendo.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/295/3/E595 Effect of premeal consumption of whey protein and its hydrolysate on food intake and postmeal glycemia and insulin responses in young adults. http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/abstract/ajcn.2009.28406v1
I’m on a fat-loss diet. Once I start taking the products, would I have to subtract 295 of my calories from food to make up for the added calories from More Muscle/Recovery in order to continue with my current rate of fat loss?
Adding resistance training and our post-workout supplements while reducing empty calories will do the trick.
Does Recovery or More Muscle need to be cycled on and off?
Which products to take:
I am an endurance athlete. Most of my workouts are short, intense efforts, however I do have some longer, 1 ½ to 2 ½ hour, endurance training sessions. Which of your products would you recommend using as a Recovery drink for such a workout?
We only feature one Recovery formula, which would work for any of your workouts. Recovery is a post-training supplement, which means that you take it immediately after you train. It resets the cause of muscle fatigue at the cellular level, enabling you to be re-gain the force loss that you would experience with your training regimen within minutes, instead of days, depending on the length and duration of your training session. Our other product, More Muscle, is designed to build lean muscle, and is used in tandem with Recovery. It helps burn fat while retaining and building new lean muscle tissue.
Please advise the appropriate stack for fat reduction while limiting muscle wasting. I perform cardio 4x weekly 30-45 minutes (intervals) and weight train 4 days upper body/lower body splits.
Take one scoop of Recovery and one scoop of More Muscle immediately after training. Additionally, take one scoop of More Muscle first thing in the morning or right before bed, or as a meal replacement at any time during the day. On non-training days, take one scoop of More Muscle first thing in the morning.
Can I use PROGENEX More Muscle as a meal replacement?
Absolutely. However, PROGENEX More Muscle is not formulated as a meal replacement so it does not have many carbs and no fats. To get the most out of a meal replacement you might want to mix some healthy carbs (fruits) and fats (coconut oil, nut butters). This will also help keep you full enough until the next meal.
