Our 2:1:1 Recovery is a scientifically based formula combining fast-acting carbs and staged proteins to support muscle recovery and growth. Containing 35g of protein, 70g of carbohydrates & over 16g of BCAAs, this is the ultimate recovery formula used by many of our professional teams and athletes.

But What Does It Do?

Recovery is a two-part process that involves replenishing the carbohydrate-based glycogen burned as fuel during intense physical effort and re-building the muscle fibres broken down during training. ON’s 2:1:1 Recovery atisfies both these needs with a 2:1 ratio of fast-acting carbs to staged proteins.

Hydrolysed Whey, Egg Albumen and Micellar Casein proteins provide amino acid delivery to aid muscle repair and rebuilding. Alongside this, the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs help refuel and replenish hard-working muscles.

When’s The Best Time To Enjoy My Shake?

This advanced blend can be used for carb loading before training or competition, and also to maximise the recovery period 30-60 minutes afterwards. During this time, nutrient needs are at their peak. By supplying a post-workout recovery protein, you’ll be helping muscles to be recharged and stronger for your next training session.

Shaker: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to your shaker cup and then pour 12-16 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. (If you're making a 1 rounded scoop serving, just cut the amount of water or milk in half). Don't have a shaker cup? Visit and order a custom shaker, or visit your local health food store or gym. Blender: Add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to a blender filled with 12-16 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Reduce the liquid and ice by half if you are only using one rounded scoop of 2:1:1 Recovery powder. Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can add 2:1:1 Recovery in a glass filled with cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. If you're preparing a 2 rounded scoop serving add 12-16 oz of liquid, for a 1 rounded scoop serving use 6-8 oz. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. Suggested Use: Based upon your body weight, activity levels, and performance goals, consume one or more scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery immediately after workouts. Less than 149 bodyweight (lbs): 1 Serving size (Scoops); 150-199 Bodyweight (lbs): 1-2 Serving size (Scoops); 200+ Bodyweight (lbs): 2+ Serving size (Scoops). Tip: Consume a high-protein, high-carbohydrate whole food meal or second serving of 2:1:1 Recovery 2-3 hours after your post-workout recovery shake to maximize stored energy levels for your next workout. Store in a cool, dry place.
