P90X® Results and Recovery
Now I personally drink this after every workout (except for my PiYo rest days), and I really love the effect it has on me. My workouts are tough, and I’m definitely spent and so out of energy afterward that this really perks me back up a bit by refilling my energy reserves. I only use half a serving, but that’s just enough for me! (Weight Watchers folk - a full serving has a PointsPlus value of 6, and half is 3.)
