Industry leader Optimum Nutrition brings to the table a post-workout recovery supplement called After Max. This product attempts to combine all the essential components necessary for a successful post-workout supplement.
- 40 grams whey protein, 40 grams carbohydrates, 5 grams creatine, 5 grams glutamine per serving.
- Great Taste
- Recommendation: Definite Buy
One can argue against the 1:1 protein to carbs ratio and might prefer a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio, but the fact is, After Max supplies your body with a high amount of protein, ample amount of carbs, creatine, and glutamine that supports muscle growth and allows your body fast recovery. The one negative aspect of the product that I have found is that it is only 20 servings. With the price ranging from $35-$45 per tub, you are looking at $1.75- $2.25 per shake. Depending on your own personal financial situation, that may or may not be acceptable. Below is an official product description from Optimum Nutrition.
After Max is a comprehensive post-workout powder that establishes a foundation for accelerated recovery and serious muscle growth. This state-of-the-art recovery formula supplies a superior blend of 40 grams of the highest quality proteins, with rapidly digesting carbohydrates, free form amino acids and 22 vitamins and essential minerals including antioxidants and electrolytes. After Max also provides 5 grams of Creapure brand Creatine Monohydrate, over 5 grams of Glutamine from L-Glutamine, Glutamine Peptides, and Whey Protein, 1 gram of Taurine and enzyme systems to help maximize post-workout recovery.
