Strengths: reduced calf fatigue on long runs, comfortable
Overall: I bought these as I was feeling soreness in my calves on long runs and this was reduced when wearing them. They are very comfortable and I don't think I look as stupid wearing them as I thought I would. I only have a pair of Nikes to compare these to and they're better
Overall: I was sceptical about these products but decided to give some a go. This is the best recovery drink I tried. Taste is good, although I did find powdery lumps to be a mild issue. I felt noticably less stiff and with more energy after a long / hard training session, when drinking this straight after. However, I've also had the same effect blending milk, banana and peanut butter for a smoothie.
Overall: I was given one of these at the end of a 10K race. I didn't chug it all back quickly, took it slow and steady. But after half, I found it too sweet and it made me feel a bit sick. Milk, banana and peanut butter blended to a smoothie is magic.
