Effective Post-Workout

Outwork Recovery provides an evidence-based formula that will help you recover faster and build more muscle.* It doesn’t include low-dosed, throwaway ingredients with little research to back up their claims, or seemingly novel ingredients included simply to make the product appear innovative. Each ingredient serves a specific purpose (to make the best post-workout supplement), and each one is fully disclosed on the label - nothing is hidden behind a proprietary blend.

Outwork Recovery is also formulated to work synergistically with Outwork Pre-Workout. While both work well as standalone products, they work even better together due to complementary ingredients and effects.

Outwork Recovery can help:

  • Increase lean body mass*
  • Improve recovery from workouts*
  • Increase muscle protein synthesis and net muscle protein balance to help you build more muscle mass*
  • Decrease excessive muscle damage*
  • Reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) so you can get back in the gym*
  • Increase androgen receptor density in muscle cells, making your current levels of anabolic hormones like testosterone more effective*

How To Use

As a dietary supplement, mix 2 scoops with 16-32oz of water. New users should start with 1 scoop to assess tolerance. Consume at least 5 days per week with food or after a meal.

Many people use Recovery as a post-workout drink. However, timing is not important - it can be taken anytime that is convenient.

Recovery Ingredients

Creatine Monohydrate (5g per serving)

Creatine is a naturally occurring molecule that is synthesized in the liver and its benefits are well-documented. Creatine supplementation has been shown to increase muscle strength, and performance output [1][2] as well as improve body composition and lean body mass [3][5]. Additionally, creatine aids in recovery by delaying the onset of muscle fatigue [2]. While there are many different forms of creatine on the market, the overwhelming amount of research showing benefits of creatine supplementation has been performed using creatine monohydrate [4][5][6]. Studies on creatine monohydrate supplementation have shown that 5-10 g/d are optimal in maintaining whole body creatine stores [1][8] and that doses as high as 30 g/d for five years is generally safe and well tolerated [7]. Additionally, a dosing of 3 g/d of creatine monohydrate throughout the lifespan may delay or prevent the onset of health problems such as type II diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome [7][12].

The research data overwhelmingly show that creatine monohydrate is safe and effective. Other forms of creatine (ethyl ester, buffered creatine, hydrochloride, etc) are either less effective or of equal effectiveness but more expensive [9][10][11]. Creatine monohydrate has been demonstrated to saturate the muscle cell with phosphocreatine and has by far the most scientific data to support its usage [11]. Therefore, Outwork Recovery ensures that you are getting the best bang for your buck with a full dose of 5g per serving [1][8].

Betaine (2.5g per serving)

Betaine is a nutrient isolated from beets and found in a variety of animals, plants and microorganisms. In the human body, betaine is a highly effective osmolyte which helps to enhance muscle cell survival, increase cell synthesis, and maintain myosin ATPase activity during periods of stress [13].

Betaine supplementation has been demonstrated to improve strength and peak power output [14][15]. Betaine also increases endurance by extending the time until fatigue and protecting the body from dehydration [13][15]. Lastly, betaine supplementation has been shown to increase lean body mass [16][17]. With a research supported dose of 2.5 g of betaine per serving, Outwork Recovery post-workout helps to ensure that you get the best results from your workouts [13][14][15].

L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (2g per serving)

L-carnitine L-tartrate (LCLT) is a dietary supplement containing the levo-enantiomers of carnitine and tartrate [18]. LCLT supplementation may improve workout performance, but it has also demonstrated the ability to enhance recovery [21]. LCLT has been shown to improve blood flow and the delivery of oxygen to muscle tissue during and after exercise [19]. Additionally, LCLT may reduce muscle soreness [20][22], increase androgen receptor density in muscle cells [23] and increase lean body mass in the elderly [24]

Outwork Recovery provides a full dose of 2g of LCLT to reduce the post exercise muscle soreness and enhance time to recovery.*

Tart Cherry Extract (480mg per serving)

Montmorency tart cherries are extremely rich in anthocyanins, a major polyphenolic sub-class of flavonoids. Anthocyanins are also powerful antioxidants and help regulate metabolic dysfunction within the human body [25]. The high concentration of anthocyanins in Tart Cherry Extract reduces oxidative stress and inflammation which may improve workout recovery [25][26][27][28] Further, supplementation with Tart Cherry Extract has been demonstrated to decrease delayed onset muscle soreness during resistance training, thus improving recovery [29].

Outwork Recovery post-workout supplement provides a full dose of 480 mg tart cherry extract powder to bring all the benefits and help you recover faster [25][26].

Ashwagandha (300mg per serving)

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb also known as Indian Ginseng or Winter Cherry [30]. Adaptogens are compounds with phytonutrients that help to regulate the body’s metabolism in times of physical or mental stress. They help by normalizing system functions, building a resistance to future stress, and elevating the ability to function at a higher performance level [30].

Ashwagandha has gained significant interest in the exercise science realm for its ability to increase lean body mass, strength and recovery [30]. It has also been shown to improve mental well-being [31], reduce stress and anxiety [32], improve sleep quality [32] and increase testosterone levels [33].

    Worth every penny

    I haven’t been using this long enough to give a concrete opinion but so far so good. Only issue I have is with the flavoring. It’s not to my tastebuds liking (3/5 stars). However I feel great in and out of the gym. My weight lifting PRs have significantly improved over 10% from using this product the last few weeks. Also I don’t feel any bloat or higher water retention from taking this product. I will try a different flavor next.

    Trying ON Recovery

    Came across Outwork Nutrition while researching for a client, decided to try it. I give Recovery a 4/5. I’ve only been using it for about two weeks so not enough time to make any sort of definite determination. However, it is at least as good as my regular brand and no ill affects. I like the toned down flavor, not too strong and not much aftertaste.

    Anecdotally its good, good flavor,

    Tasty way to get my daily creatine. I've been using it as intra workout to have something tasty while moving weight. Anecdotally it's a nice to drink for during my workout.

    Time to Kick Ass and Chew Bubblegum

    I’m of the opinion that less is more or I suppose you could say lowest efficacious dose. Love that there is no unnecessary BS fluff ingredients, but instead only science backed ingredients. I don’t just want to put a bunch of “stuff” in my body. In addition, the products I have tried so far taste great, and help I believe help me perform and recover better. Having been following Layne and Team Biolayne on YouTube and IG I knew the products would be great because they always put out great, evidenced based information….because let’s be honest there is a ton of garbage out there. I could go on and on, but I know you are busy, so I will end it by saying you have a customer for life. Keep killing it and calling out the BS. Appreciate you all.

    First batch was good

    The first Recovery Orange Sherbet I ordered was amazing! The flavor was so good that I wanted to drink more than the daily limit. I also felt a difference after consuming post-workouts. I liked it so much I ordered another but my second one wasn't as good for some reason? The color of the powder was darker and so was the drink. The flavor wasn't as good either. Not excited to drink it like I was before. Maybe it was in higher temps when delivering or something. Hoping third time is as good as the first!
