Maxin' Out w/ Primordial's Maximum Absorbed Protein (spons.)
MAXIMUM ABSORBED PROTEIN
Alright boys and girls! My Primordial Performance Maximum Absorbed Protein in Lemon Lime arrived today. With the abundance of quality products pouring out of PP lately I was really excited to be selected to give this one a run. I am currently in week 3 of a Superdrone run and will be going into PCT in a week and a half. I am really excited to see how this protein works with me in the last week of the run and throughout PCT. The ingredient profile is highly attractive and I am super excited to get away from those traditional "milk-based" flavors I am starting to hate. How much grainy chocolate milk can one man drink? Haha.
I will walk you guys through an initial taste review before hitting up some factors such as stamina, recovery, energy, etc. I think I am at the perfect time in my cycle to know what is the effects of Superdrone and what additions the Maximum Absorbed Protein make!
I believe I will be dosing 1 scoop pre-WO and 1 scoop post-WO with possibly an additional scoop on workout days. Any reps comment on if this is good.
Here it is shortly after the FedEx man knocked on my door.
Check out this thread for a breakdown of Primordial Performance's Maximum Absorbed Protein if you haven't heard anything yet....Primordial Performance presents: Maximum Absorbed Protein
After the initial taste review, I think I am going to cover the following aspects. Let me know if there are any you would like me to add.

Alright. This is going to be my first dose. Leg day and taking this as 1 scoop pre-WO. I will take another scoop post-WO.
Here it is in the jar.
Smells very sweet and very much like lemon lime. Very comparable to a pre-WO lemon lime drink. Has almost a "creamy" smell to it if you will, but very delicious.
Kind of foams up after you shake it.
Let it sit in the fridge for 15-20 minutes and this is what it comes out like. Only mild settling at the bottom which is great. A small shake and it is all mixed up again. Smells very similar as it did in the jar but with a mild bitter hint to it.
INITIAL TASTE REVIEW:
Basically, the thing tastes like lemon-lime. It very well mimics the flavor of a traditional citrus pre-WO drink, except you can definitely taste the bitter undertones of something. I almost felt as if I was drinking something with vodka in it, haha. It definitely wasn't bad for the ingredient profile and I have a feeling I will get used to it. Still way better than traditional protein.
There was no grainy taste or any solid particles. Very nice.
I might have felt a little perk up before I deadlifted today. Not expecting this from a protein drink though.
On a special note, cleaning out my shaker has never been easier. I am not one to immediately wash something so a little rinse and I am ready for my next dose of MAP. A lot easier than cleaning old milk out of a shaker, haha.
We'll see what the future holds!

Just got home from a late night workout. Was busy earlier today and wasn't going to go until the weekend but got bored and our gym is open until midnight so I thought what the hell. It is scary some of these kids who go at midnight....I thought everyone in there was going to kill themselves.
I feel good today after blasting my legs yesterday. Usually I am really sore after deadlifting but surprisingly not so much today. Is this from one dose of protein? Doubtful....but it's a good sign.
This stuff definitely has a bite to it. I will try to experiment with different water levels and such to get a feel for what is best and let you guys know. I have heard the lemon lime does a slightly less job of covering up the ingredient profile in the flavoring. Not bad though if it works.
I think I am just going to comment on everything instead of giving it a 1-10 scale as this kind of thing is hard to quantify.
So recovery is very good today. Legs feel good with little DOMS.
Taste is okay so far. I usually take a swig of my Coke Zero or whatever I have laying around as a "chaser" of sorts. Immediately overrides any bitterness and the taste is good.
Can't wait for some future workouts. Final week of Superdrone coming up. Gains are great and no sides so far.

No soreness today at all which is surprising. I haven't been able to put up 90s on the dumbbells for some time but gave it a go last night and success thanks in part to Superdrone. Thought I would be sore as hell today but nothing. Inturrressting.

Another great workout today. Setting PRs all over the place. Bench day today. Felt really great all weekend after an intense leg day on Thursday and a late night session on Friday. Had some soreness Saturday morning but nothing too bad.
Recovery is great thus far. Feeling really good the next day after intense workouts. I am usually in the gym a long time and have been working on not overtraining -- but everything is going great.
I am really liking this protein and taking milk out of the equation. So much easier to throw some in water and go.
Use some more water today in mixing. Killed the "bite" at the end quite a bit. I would say it is about 20 oz. Maybe I was using too little water before. Let it sit about 20 minutes this time in the fridge after shaking. Little grainy at the bottom but once again mixes up fine after a quick shake. Didn't have to drink anything to follow up this time -- actually tastes pretty good. Very impressed.
I will try a tad more water next time and see if it kills the bite altogether.

Really narrowing down the water amount to get the right taste. I have found that using about 20 to 22 oz of water and letting it sit 20-25 minutes in the fridge makes the "bite" at the end go completely away.
Rest day for me today but decided to have a scoop. Tasted a lot better than before.
I don't know if it is the protein or what, but my recovery has been awesome. I feel great the next day after every workout.
Can't wait to hit the gym again tomorrow.

so letting it sit longer takes away the bite? i'll try that with my mango today. the DOMS decrease is fantastic isn't it?

I think letting it sit a little longer helps. It could just be because it is getting so cold from sitting in the fridge though that is making it taste a little better. The DOMS decrease is actually really amazing. I am going to hit legs in a bit and usually I can barely walk the next day. Going ot be another test, but last leg day I felt fine the next day.
Haha thanks man. Trying to cover all aspects I can think of.
Agreed. Way better and convenient than a traditional "protein shake". I absolutely love the ease of this product and can't believe something like this wasn't available sooner!
No problem bro! Glad you're enjoying the log. I'll try to throw some more pics up and possibly a vid soon.

Just tore up my leg work out. Setting a PR every time now.
I'll update tomorrow if I can walk or not, haha!!
03-12-2010, 01:47 PM
Alright, Primordial, spill the beans. What kind of crazy recovery juice is this stuff?
Zero DOMS in my legs after beating the **** out of them yesterday. Ridiculous. I have to run but I will throw a full update up later.
Going to enjoy this 70 degree Ohio weather!!

I did 1 scoop before and 1 scoop after workouts only. The days in between I just used regular whey protein. Honestly if I had a 5 pound supply of this I would definately take 1 scoop morning and 1 scoop pre/post workout as well as 2 scoops on non workout days. I just figured with the amount in the tub that I should utilize it pre/post workout only.

I think on a normal workout routine I would do pre and post only as well, then use another protein product on off days just to get in the protein needed via your diet.

First workout of PCT today. Skipped yesterday due to lack of sleep from studying for finals. Strength still there and feeling good, albeit a little groggy. I seem to be having trouble sleeping on Nolva, as seems to be a rare occurrence with it from researching.
Two doses of protein today. Really hit the chest hard so it'll be interesting to see how I feel tomorrow. Hope to keep gaining strength and hoping the MAP will help with that aspect! To be able to maintain a cycle-like recovery would be amazing.
Made a little video of the MAP but have to convert it and upload it. I'll post it up once it is done.
Word of advice...you still need to clean out your shaker even when milk isn't involved, haha! Forgot to wash mine out one night and my room stunk to high hell yesterday.
