My The Protein Works All-in-One Protein Powder Review
However, we are here to review their ‘All-in-One’ protein powder. The All-in-One really took off and was established by Maxinutrition (formally Maximuscle) about 8 years ago, driven by a great marketing campaign; it not only brought muscle building supplements to the masses but in a convenient package. All of your muscle building and recovery nutrients were available in one product.
I remember the adverts on the tube in London and thinking nothing like this had ever really been seen before. It used natural and believable case studies of real people thus making fitness and muscle goals look achievable even whilst you were chowing down on your kebab at 11pm after a night on the beers.
This sticks with the corporate image of TPW, clean, simple, no nonsense design whilst also managing to not look cheap and ‘off the back of a truck’. All of the ingredients are clear and informative; this is a brand you can trust. It is also in a re-sealable bag which is so much easier to stuff in your cupboard rather than a massive plastic tub.

The main ingredients here are explained in more detail below:
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.
Glutamine – Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (building block of protein) in the body. The body can make enough glutamine for its regular needs, but extreme stress (the kind you would experience after very heavy exercise or an injury), your body may need more glutamine than it can make.
Leucine – Leucine is an established modulator of muscle protein metabolism and has been identified as a key regulator in the translation initiation pathway of muscle protein synthesis.
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.
Serving Size: 70g (2 large grey scoops).
Two servings per day, or as required to meet your own individual needs.
This is a cutting edge all-in-one protein formula designed to aid muscle building. It boasts a blend of premium grade whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate, optimal dosages of creatine, glutamine, leucine and a ‘TPW Dual Phase Carb System’ specifically formulated to promote muscle recovery and growth.
All-in-One Protein also includes the revolutionary PepForm Leucine Peptides to aid the utilisation of leucine and Digezyme to enhance absorption and uptake.
There are few negatives I can think of here, a personal bugbear is that with TPW USD78/GBP50/AUD99/EUR70 has to be spent before receiving free delivery, by now all retailers should either include it in the price or offer it free.
I have tried most flavours as this is my current staple and they are okay, however are not up to scratch with a couple other I have used in the past. I know it is not everything but if it is palatable it just makes it easier to use.
My TPW All-in-One Conclusion:
Aforesaid, this is my staple; it is cost effective at USD36/GBP22.99/AUD45.57/EUR32.26, has some great ingredients and really helps me with my strength goals. It is not heavy on the stomach either like some All-in-One products. Admittedly it does not include quite as much protein as some or include as many other ingredients but I find it difficult to go wrong.
