my review on the multipower fit protein - yeah these things taste nice, yeah they have protein but also they are loaded with sugar! I personally would not use them, I think that the main problem with these is the calories and sugar, you are better off buying protein powder and making your own shakes. they are also extremely over priced to the point where you can pay 3-4 quid for one of these bottles, that in my opinion is not worth it in any way. the only thing they are good for is if you don't care about your diet and your calorie intake, but bodybuilding is about carefully calculating calories and macros so that's why I think they are useless. sugary carbs also are not good, get a clean carb source with a low GI. save your money and buy some meat or some protein powder in my opinion!
Multipower is a reputable suppliment company established for some years now and have a wide and varied product range in supplimnents, from ready to take drinks liek this one to protein bars and shakes. Musclepower only stock to limited stockists like Holland and Barret and their chain GNC to name two, but they do not sell to many other mass market companies like Discount suppliments or Superfit....this means that unfortunately prices are kept high in comparison to products of the same nature as there are not allots of companies competing for business. Nutrional information is broken down on the label in three different languages, as Musclepower stock all over Europe. Shake the bottle well before opening as it is a shake that has been sitting on a shelf and there will be sediment. Both the vanilla and chocolate ones that I tasted were very thick, im comparison to other protein shakes like Maximuscle, and had a nice sweet aftertaste again unlike other shakes like USN , their is not copper tasting, chalky aftertaste. The protein shake comes in a brown glass bottle which looks like your sipping from a beer bottle, or ginger ale or something if your out in the open. The lid is metal aluminium and is flimsy and tough to get off if it is slightly damp. It comes in three classic shake flavours, Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla. The protein content is pretty descent too for a shake - you get 53 grams of protein per 500 ml bottle, and although the fat level is basiscally nothing at 1.5 grams for that whole bottle, it still isnt zero grams as you get with most descent protein powders. You can get these drinks from allot of different stockests like gyms, such as L.A fitness and Fitness First , they will probably charge slightly over the odss, but you can also buy them from good old Holland and Barrett for £3, if you get them from some online stockists and buy them in bulk , say up to 12 bottles , you can get the price down to £2.50 In conclusion, this is a great thick protein shake with high protein contant, relatively low in fat and no aftertaste, a good buy if on the little expensive side.
I drink protein every now and then after the gym to help build and recover my muscles, and I usually bring my own powder from home and mix with water at the gym after a workout. I recently forgot to bring said powder to the gym with me and I had to resort to buying one of the protein shakes the gym have in stock. The ones they have are the Multipower Fit Protein. Multipower is a generally well known brand in the sports and fitness industry which make sports supplemtens, bars and drinks among other items. Their fit protein is their basic, ready mixed protein drink which is designed for after workout use to help rebuild and restore the muscles you have used. They come in a variety of flavours but I only had a choice between vanilla and strawberry. I opted for vanilla. The shake comes in a generally large glass bottle, with a white, metallic screwtop lid which I found easy enough to remove. The bottle was a little difficult to hold as it is quite big, but then I suppose it is made for muscly, big handed men, not little women like me lol. There is a wraparound label on the bottle which explains what the shake does and what is in it in the way of carbohydrates, fat, protein etc. I found the shake to be ok tasting, but not the greatest. I have come to know that most protein shakes do not have a nice taste to them, but this was not up the top of the chain. It was a bearable taste, but given the option I do not think I would drink it again. The texture of the shake is quite thick, a little bit thicker than my own mixed shake, but was still easy enough to swallow. There is quite a lot in the bottle, and it made me a bit bloated drinking it, as I think this one is actually bigger than the usual one I drink. It sat quite heavily in my stomach and was still there, being heavy, quite a while later. I paid £2.50 for the bottle, which is a general price for a pre made protein shake these days, but I think that is a bit too expensive and I won't be paying that for one of these again. I always make sure I have my own now as I did not like this one compared to my own brand I usually use. Whilst this drink does have the right nutrients etc in it for muscle repair after a workout, I did not like the taste or the horribly heavy feeling it left in my stomach afterwards and I do not think I will be drinking this again. I would may be tempted to try some of their other flavours, but I believe they would all give me the same heavy stomach feelin. Some people I know say that this the perfect shake for them, so I suppose it all depends on personal preference, but I will be steering clear of this one in the future. I give this shake a 3 out of 5 stars, and I some what recommend it, for the nutrients, but not the taste or texture.
After re-discovering the gym about a month ago, I decided that I would hit it head on, and get on training hardcore stylee. A couple of friends at work are regulars, and have been training for years, using various supplements and shakes to help them build up, and or lose weight, and gain definition. You will soon see a few reviews on here of the multitude of powder form supplement shakes (if you have ever been to a fitness first you'll have seen 'maximuscle' products being advertised in there) from me as i try them out and see which one has the best taste and benefits package. Multipower is a company based in Germany and was started in 1985, that produce a varied range of products for the fitness and sports industry. The companies philosophy according to their website is that they supply direct to gyms and suppliers such as Holland & Barrett, and not wholesalers as they like to give training and product support....blah, blah, blah... basically it can only be found in: Holland & Barrett, GNC, Fitness First, Bannatynes, Nuffield (im guessing thats a gym?) and online at DW Fitness. This means there is a bit of a monopoly on prices for you and I. The product itself comes packaged in a Brown glass bottle, with an impossibly stupid lid, that if even slightly wet, like if you're hands are maybe a bit sweaty after a work out, or a shower, then you may find yourself fighting with it like the old Mr Muscle adverts. All of the information, and ingredients are listed on the label albeit in german, spanish, and english, which might cause a few people to wonder if its a dodgy import, but it isn't. I have only ever had the Chocolate flavour so I will only be able to tell you about that one, however other people that i train with love the vanilla and strawberry flavours. Once the monumental battle that is opening the bottle has passed, after remembering to shake the life out of it just in case a small amount of sediment has settled, you are ready to enjoy and savour the taste of a really chocolatey protein drink. For those of you who dont partake of the protein drinks (No, not those ones! filthy minded people) I will say this: the large majority are not even close to actually tasting anything like chocolate, in fact, they aren't even close to tasting at all. This one, however, is fantastic, it really does taste like a proper chocolate milkshake! its thick, milky, and ooh soo chocolatey. It is nice and sweet, but not too much soo that it becomes sickly. and leaves you with a pleasant aftertaste, not the chalky chemical one that some others do. Nutritionally it is pretty damn good too, providing 53g of milk protein per serving (500ml) and only 1.5g of fat (chocolate flavour), the only possible down side that i can see is that it does contain 419Kcal per serving which might sound a lot, but isnt too bad for this kind of product. Prices: if you decide to go out there and get some, in Fitness First it will cost you £3.50 per bottle (£9 for 3 at the moment on offer), in GNC and H&B it will cost you £2.99 but they do often have buy one get one half price or free on so its worth stocking up when they do. Overall this is by far the best tasting protein drink out there, however you do have to pay for it, it's the old addage, you get what you pay for. I would have given this product 5 stars if it wasn't for the cost and lids... if you would like more info, try their website: www.multipoweruk.com
