I have never heard much about MPA supplements until @Clipper83 did a review on SR about CelluVol. Recently I decided to check out Matt Porters Supplement line and found CreRiboVol to be interesting and the dosing seemed just right. I personally love to find a good recovery product.
I started CreRiboVol 7 days ago and got the Pineapple Mango flavor. I will post my thoughts as I go along with this log, and if I am missing any info or you guys want more info on something, just let me know.
Inital thoughts (Day 7)
Taste: Well first of all the taste is not great at all. It is drinkable, but it just does not taste good and not something I look forward to slugging down post workout.
Mixability: This takes some effort and I use the recommended 14-16oz of water. You have to vigorously shake this up for it to mix, and if you let it sit for a minute the powder moves to the bottom of the shaker, so just ensure you shake it up before every sip.
Effectiveness: Now that the vanity stuff is out of the way lets talk the important stuff. I have been taking a 5g BCAA Supplement (Amino-Tone by RCSS) Intra-workout for the first 5 days on this. Yesterday was a rest day, so I only dosed CreRiboVol as my recovery drink for the day. I woke up today feeling pretty recovered. I have about a week left on Amino-Tone, so after this week I will stick with just taking CreRiboVol to see how much recovery it truly gives me. This will give me an idea how it goes with 5g BCAAs (for 2 weeks) and on its own (for 2 weeks). So far, so good.
For my workout I started 5/3/1 Pervertor last week as well. It has some high volume included and averages 65 reps of your main lift each day, and I am lifting 5 days a week. So recovery for me is paramount for this workout.
