A few weeks back I was asked to try out a couple of multipower products and I said I didn’t mind giving it a whirl. Over the last few years having stumbled on SIS products early on I have been pretty loyal to the brand as I actually quite like the taste of most of their products. However, I was willing to give another brand a try.
So far I have used the recovery choc bar, I’m not a massive choco fan and this came across as closer to dark choc form. That said it was perfectly edible and as it was in a bar format it meant I could chuck it in my camelbak and run to work with it. It didn’t need mixing up so could be consumed whilst sat at my desk working and also as it wasn’t a liquid it meant I could take it on with water at the same time which for me was ideal.
They also sent some mixer to take on before exercise with electrolytes acting as an energy drink. I took this on before heading out on a longish hilly bike ride. I was slightly confused how much powder I needed to the water. There was a handy spoon but it didn’t say how big that spoon was! I struggled a bit with the taste of this one but think that could be due to poor measurement. Also I suspect if I was to throw a mixed up version into the fridge it would be a lot nicer cold! With regards to the spoon – if this is the correct measure then apologies im being a bit special
I was also sent some recovery products which I will try after really pushing myself. I’m slightly concerned these products are more for bulking up which is far from what I’m trying to do now so am a little dubious about those.
All in all an interesting range of products. However, I think these products maybe bit more tailored to the gym go-ers rather than the runners etc. There is a lot of competition out there and taste is a massive factor and I’m not sure at first try these guys have got it quite right but I’m prepared to keep at it. That said, having just logged onto the Multipower website there are a whole range of products which I could see being useful to my training like their crunch bars & flap jacks – part of the “Active” range.
