P90X Results and Recovery Formula Drink
The P90X Results and Recovery Drink is my most recommended supplement for anyone doing P90X or INSANITY as it is VITAL for success and results. Even before my time as an Independent TeamBeachbody® Coach, I knew the importance of a proper post workout supplement. Plus, its the best tasting Post Workout Recovery Shake ever! It’s like drinking a orange cream-sicle, delicious!
- Dextrose-based formula for optimum glycogen replenishment
- A high Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) blend to provide the critical building blocks for rapid muscle resynthesis
- Vitamins, including antioxidants, to help reduce muscle soreness and assist in repair and growth

As I said this is probably the most important part of any exercise routine, although it could also be called a Replenish Drink. Replenishing your glycogen (energy) levels immediately after intense exercise is VITAL for success. Each dosage (2 scoops) has a 4:1 ratio of protein (10g) and carbs (40g) which has been proven to be most effective to spike insulin. Insulin is responsible for “shuttling” nutrients into our bodies/muscles. Understand that spiking insulin is normally bad for us, but we purposely want to get protein and carbs back into our starving muscles to begin promoting lean muscle growth and repair as immediately as possible.
Intense exercise will burn off glycogen stores in the muscles which leaves the body without its primary source of energy. The longer you are in this state, the greater the chances your body will panic and may actually breakdown your existing muscle to create more glycogen—the exact opposite of what we are achieving for! Plus low blood sugar levels in the brain will lead to fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration, depression, etc. P90X and INSANITYare intense so don’t burn out on week 1!
By replenishing your muscles with glycogen, you will not only avoid muscle breakdown, but you will promote muscle growth and keep your energy levels up. The P90X Results and Recovery Formula post workout shake is not for ‘bulking up’, which some may wrongfully believe. The only way to ‘bulk’ up is to consume an excess of calories in your daily routine while lifting some heavy weights. However, women have much less muscle mass than men (and burn fewer calories) so I find that one scoop (half serving) will do just fine.
Are you a “hardgainer?” Somebody that is naturally skinny and has a hard time gaining muscle? Or are you trying to gain muscle and size, rather than muscle definition? Then you need to take it up a notch and try the Beachbody Fuel Shot from the Body Beast muscle building supplement line.
Why does the P90X Results and Recovery Formula say “New and Improved?”
You probably noticed the “New and Improved” and want to know the difference from the old formula. Beachbody® has removed fructose and now uses all dextrose, which is the fastest metabolizing sugar commercially available. Artificial sweeteners have been removed in favor of the natural sweetener, Stevia. A few people complain the old formula tastes “better”, but I found the old formula to be very harsh on my stomach and the new formula settles much better. It may be milder in taste, but it still is the best post workout recovery shake on the market and I applaud Beachbody for improving its performance enhancing significance.
