Firstly when ordering this product, I looked at some comments left by other users. This made me lower my expectations of the product, when I received it I tried it and it is AMAZING! Do not listen to criticisms of this product. I ordered the chocolate peanut butter, 10/10 for taste, its sweet but I like it. 9/10 for mix-ability, when mixing in the shaker some little blobs of peanut butter will still be floating in while drinking, but its no big deal. The actual chocolate flavour mixes very well. This protein is a blend and breaks down slowly over a period of time and really helps to put on mass, a constant protein source is available for muscle growth. The tub could be bigger but this probrably reflects why this protein is much cheaper than other brands. The scoops of protein are huge, which means i now need to order another tub. But other than that its the best protein you will find out there for this price. I highly recommend it, 8/10.
by the name you know it means it .
mp Combat provide you with the need to build muscle i mean all the way it release protein up to 8 hours which is an amazing benefit to have and also easy on the stomach it also has a good taste and mixes good with water and milk although i would advise to use milk for a better taste even though it could add a couple of extra calories.This products gives no cramps or belly upsets
From all the protein powders I have been using during many years, this one is my all-time favorite. Actually, this protein is one of the reasons why I started to try all other MuscclePharm products and grew really fond of the brand. Firstly, the taste is so good that you could not believe you are drinking a protein shake. So far, I have tried three flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream and S'mores. I have enjoyed all of them very much, but my number one flavor is S'mores as it contains small marshmallows!
Secondly, it mixes really well with both water or milk. Of course it is the best with milk, as the texture becomes really creamy. Thirdly, it really helps to recover and you can tell the difference the next day. Forth, as it is so good you want to enjoy it as a meal replacement (instead of crabbing something unhealthier) and thus it may help you to shred those couple of extra pounds.
MusclePharms Combat is my all-time favourite protein powder. There is my judgement:
TASTE: 10/10 Chocolate Peanut Butter, so good, usually it wasn't a thing,but when I got Combat I really was waiting when the workout was over and I can go and drink this perfect shake. Cookies&Cream and S'Mores tastes are also very good. (S'Mores has little marshmellow pieces in it. Tastes are really very good.
MIXABILITY: 10/10 No foam and such stuff, it mixed well.
RESULTS: 10/10 I quess it was clean diet too, but with that I packed 2kg of muscle in two months. I were satisfied. I really like that it is blend of proteins, so I can use it everytime, like before and after workout and it suits for before bed meal.
I have used it many times and will continue using it.
Musclepharm Combat Powder is another protein blend in a market filled with protein blends. Upon first look there is nothing spectaculer about it, it contains an average amount of protein per scoop but each tub comes with a bit less servings than many other products. I tried the milk chocolate and the chocolate peanut butter, the milk chocolote was very sweet but did not taste that strongly of chocolate. The Chocolate peanut butter did not have any peanut smell to it, neither did it have a strong peanut taste which was very disappointing, it actually just tasted like a stronger chocolate protein powder.
Sadly, even a simple thing as a protein blend is put into musclepharms famous proprietary blends, which mean we have no idea how much of the protein comes from whey (concentrate and isolates), casein and egg protein. The texture of the protein is very thin, which is a bit unusual of blends that contains a 40/40/20 distribution as casein and egg protein usually are a bit thicker than whey.
While i love many of musclepharms products, sadly this does not live up to their name. The taste is average, you only get 1,8kg compared to the usual 2kg from other brands and the proprietary blend means you actually don't know how well thought out the blend is. While the price is fairly competetive, that is the only thing that is going for this product, but it is still hard to recommend!
I've been using protein powders for the last 10 years now. It's fairly obvious that the flavoring has been improving and it's getting better, but this is the point where it's just silly now. Just tried my first shake of Combat Powder (I got Chocolate peanut butter) after reading all the gleaming reviews, I spontaneously laughed after I took my first sip. Think of what a Reese's milkshake would taste like. Yep, that's it. It might be too sweet for some, but I really like it.
Mixes great in a shaker, and does not really thicken up so it's ideal if you want to mix your shake up with some powdered oats like I do to have an great meal replacement shake. Top marks from me.
Easily the best protein on the market. MusclePharm make great products and invest in their athletes. This protein lives up to their brand ethos. Great tasting and a well engineered product. No cramps or digestive issues you may get from other brands and full of everything you'll need from a protein powder. If tried others but always come back to this. I also use Assault and Battle Fuel XT and they are also great products that actually work.
Best all round protein on the market & the best price!
Cookies & cream is epic!
I did a lot of research into protein before i decided to buy. Being a bit cautious what i was putting into my body i was stoked to see this is all approved and no dangerous substances were in the mix.
I went for Peanut butter flavour. Taste wise, 10/10
It mixed really well with no lumps 10/10
Price seems fine, i noticed you get less compared to other brands, is it stingy, or do other brands have a lot of filler?
25g of protein so can't complain
The actual tub was a bit excessive in terms of size, storage problems at times. I know they have made the tub smaller though, just a matter of time before we get it into the uk.
I since have had cookies and cream too, sometimes i can't stomach it, more the taste than anything as its a bit sweet.
I really recommend this, you won't go back unless your are strapped on funds!
One of the best tasting protein powders around. In my opinion the Chocolate Milk flavour takes the prize of best taste. The profile is good for a blend/matrix and will cover pretty much all bases required. It has both fast and slow release proteins so can be taken any time of day and no matter what your current goal is. If you are looking for a protein that delivers then look no further than Combat Powder, its a staple in my supplement cupboard and is at the top of the list when it comes to value for money.
I tried two flavours orange creamsicle and tripple berry... both are amazing, i personally like tripple berry. it has 25 grams of protein which is just top notch. buy it and you will not be disappointed.
This product is actually my favourite at the moment, the taste of its really good mixes very well. Got 25 grams of protein per scoop although scoop is quite large but never the less this is another great protein shake that I am using.
This is so far the only flavour of MusclePharm combat i've tried but it is hands down the nicest tasting protein i have ever had and i have been through a lot. It mixes easily,tastes great and has a good amount of high quality protein, its low in carbs and fat and doesn't make me feel bloated.
its always good to have a protein that you actually enjoy the taste of, i find myself actually looking forward to the next shake which makes life so much easier for me.
I was really impressed with the taste of this product especially as calories arent ridiculously high, i am happy to have this protein while i am cutting, and i found the sweet flavour i craved from dieting were filled with this protein. The little chunks im not sure what of took a little getting used to but i started to look forward to them. Hard to comment on effectiveness but i havent noticed any extra muscle soreness since changing proteins.
This mixed in water is really nice,
mixed in oats is even better,
and blended with milk and 2 ice cubes is even better than a 1,000 calorie milkshake. best Cookies and Cream flavor protein I've tried.
I love this protein matrix powder from Muscle Pharm!A proper mix of proteins with BCAAs and glutamine, incredible taste and mixing!I highly recommended to anyone who wants to save money and have everything he needs in one tub ;)
This product is my super-food!With extra BCAAs and glutamine, it is the protein powder for every hour: in the morning-before- during - and after the gym! Highly recommended, especially the chocolate flavour ;)
With only 4gr of carbs this product is amazing!My favourite protein powder ;) Comparing with other proteins, it contains an amazing blend of whey and casein, that is hard to be found in other products!
