My Maxinutrition Cyclone Milk Review
Maxinutrition really have all bases covered, their products are as likely to be found in your local supermarket now as snickers bar and it is this exposure to the public that Maxinutrition have done so well that has made them a leader in nutrition supplements.
As per Maxinutrition’s high standards in is instantly recognisable on the shelf. The blue accents inform you that this is to aid strength and power and the nutritionals are easy to read. It looks like any milk shake too and is nicely sized to fit in any bag or glove box. It is worth noticing that following in with tradition Maxinutrition have created the world’s first cyclone and protein milk drink.
- Max Pro (Skimmed Milk, Milk Protein (7%))
- Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder (1.7%)
- Stabiliser (Carrageenan)
- Sweetener (Sucralose)
The main ingredients here for your size and strength gains are 30g of Protein and Creatine at 3g.
Whey Protein – Supplementation with Whey Protein after resistance exercise results in greater activation of key proteins in the translation initiation complex that stimulate muscle protein synthesis. Additionally, with supplementation significantly greater strength can be noticed after 12 weeks.
Creatine – It is an amino acid which increases your body’s ability to produce energy rapidly; you will be able to train harder and faster, in turn your muscles develop – they become bigger and stronger.
BCAA’s – BCAA’s are essential to the human body and critical for muscle hypertrophy (growth) and maintenance. Supplementation is recommended especially during periods of highly intensive exercise which will promote the growth of muscle tissue.
Take up to 1 bottle daily, preferably straight after exercise or in-between meals.
The expense, again with all Maxinutrition products, they are expensive and personally I would have liked to see more creatine and the inclusion of HMB so it matches the performance of the cyclone bars at least. This is nicer to consume and you do not necessarily have to worry about it melting but at 4.65USD/3.00GBP/4.22EUR/6.28AUD it is an expensive convenience.
My Maxinutrition Cyclone Milk Review:
I have to hand it to Maxinutrition; they ‘re probably the most innovative, forward thinking and inclusive nutrition supplement company on the planet, they have the marketing know how and drive to make their products mainstream and they do succeed. However, for all of this there is a cost and quite a large one too which sometimes I just do not think is great value. The quality and R&D is there but as with all premium products sometimes you cannot help feeling that you are purely paying for the name. Realistically you’re getting protein and 3g of creatine which isn’t really a great deal and all for the convenience of a small bottle. It just doesn’t quite add up.
