2:1:1 Recovery Overview

Optimum Nutrition's 2:1:1 Recovery is a better post-workout formula than your current protein powder because it's already got the right ratio of carbs and protein to maximize recovery. 2:1:1 Recovery also has 5 grams of added BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) which are key recovery nutrients themselves. Maybe you're not a hard gainer after all. Maybe that plateau isn't about how your training. The simple fact is, the right proportion of carbs at the right time is indispensable for full and complete recovery. And full and complete recovery is essential to making strength and size gains. Use any protein powder whenever you want, but for that all-important post-workout shake, make it Optimum Nutrition's 2:1:1 Recovery.

2:1:1 Recovery Description from Optimum Nutrition
What you eat, when you eat it, and how much you eat as a dramatic effect on your performance. But, not all nutrient combinations work equally well. Our 2:1:1 Recovery formula is based upon the latest science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and leads to better results than the use of larger amounts of any single type. Hydrolyzed whey, miceller casein, and egg albumen proteins provide immediate and sustained amino acid delivery for repair and rebuilding, while the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs in 2:1:1 Recovery helps refuel and replenish hard-working muscles. And with 5 grams of added BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, there's no question that 2:1:1 Recovery is an indispensible part of every serious athlete's routine.

Manufacturer's Directions
Shaker: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to your shaker cup and then pour 12-16 oz. of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. (If you're making a 1 rounded scoop serving, just cut the amount of water milk, or juice in half).

Blender: Add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to a blender filled with 12-16 oz. of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. REduce the liquid and ice by half if you are only using one rounded scoop of 2:1:1 Recovery powder.

Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can add 2:1:1 Recovery in a glass filled with cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. If you're preparing a 2 rounded scoop serving add 12-16 oz of liquid, for a 1 rounded scoop serving us

great taste, great results

Ive lost 30 pounds using the 2:1:1 recovery drink as a breakfast replacement after running. Unlike a lot of nutrition drinks, this one really tastes great. Drinking this and and running 50 miles a month has been a great combination for me.

Absolutely LOVE this Recovery - Been Using it for Years

My background - weightlifting seriously for 4 years, off and on before that. Have run the gambit in different proteins, and I this is my favorite recovery for two reasons: 1 - best tasting protein shake Ive ever had due to the carbs loaded in it 2 - I have tried other products, and I just feel the best when using 211 recovery. recover faster and muscles feel less fatigued next workout compared to other products only major con is the high calories, but thats due to the carbs, and Im okay with it since I need quality carbs after a workout for recovery anyway

This product is definitely worth the buy if you are always on the go! Ive been taking for two moths now after my workouts 5 times a week.

Awesome product

The taste is amazing, almost like a chocolate shake. All the benefits of gold standard whey protein plus the carbs need for full muscle recovery. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a do all recovery drink that tastes great.

Not sure what ovin08 is talking about...this stuff tastes great. Not Monster Milk great, but definitely top 5 of all the ones I've tasted (i've tasted a TON). I use 1 1/2 scoop as soon as i'm done, then another scoop later on in the day. I have very little soreness and I go hard...3.5hrs every 4th day. Definitely one of my favorite supplements right now. Wish the tub was bigger.
