MyProtein Hurricane XS All-In-One Protein Review
My Protein has been in operation for 10 years with a great product line of over 350 items and a good number of sponsored athletes to their name. They too have brought out their own All-In-One protein powder with an unbelievable number of flavours available to suit even the pickiest of palates.
This is extremely no frills, just blue and white re-sealable bags of powder with stuck on ingredient labels that are somewhat hard to read. This definitely falls in to the pharmaceutical design ethos with no pictures, logo’s or fire breathing animals splayed all over the place. My Protein is on-line only so no need to go ape shit with the design because there are no other shelves of products to contend with on the visual scale.
Whey Protein Concentrate (Milk)
Whey Protein Isolate (Milk)
Creatine Monohydrate (Creapure®),
HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyric acid)
Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin)
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.
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.
Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) – is a metabolite of the essential amino acid leucine, is one of the latest dietary supplements promoted to enhance gains in strength and lean body mass associated with resistance training.
Serving Size: 70g.
Two servings per day.
Hurricane XS is an ‘all-in-one’ formula designed to help with recovery after an intense bout of exercise by providing a blend of protein, carbohydrates (Dextrose and InstantOats), Creatine Monohydrate (Creapure®) and HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate).
When used in conjunction with a progressive training plan you should notice size and strength gains.
I am not picking here and it is hard not to compare MY Protein with The Protein Works and the former does look less professional in their packaging. The flavours are just a bit nicer at TPW too.
My Hurricane XS Review Conclusion:
This is a great product and in comparison I found MP’s product to be cheaper than TPW’s. There are also way more flavours available over at MP (albeit too sweet) and there’s the inclusion of HMB which TPW doesn’t include. The protein is at a great 34g per serving too.
This is a great, cost effective product to help you with your lifting goals.
