Has anybody used Progenex protein powders?!

Many Crossfit athletes supposedly use the Progenex protein blends for PWO recovery...have you used it?

Do you like it? Have you seen results? Trying to lean out, gain muscle, and make it to my first Crossfit competition and looking for some help!

Thanks!

The anus bleeding is probably from the contaminants like lead and e coli.

Nobody is peddling supplements, just simply correcting misinformation you chose to disseminate. You incorrectly stated that our products were more than double the price of what they actually are. You stated that 30 servings was $129, when a simple click on our website shows that it's 60 servings for $125: http://progenexusa.com/products/8-propack.aspx And in this post, you've made another misstatement, saying that we use the term "CrossFit" on our products. You'll earn more credibility trashing a product if you don't reveal that you've never even seen the package. Why the negativity?

It's funny that you guys bag on Peter, an Army Ranger who has been a customer of Progenex for over a year, because he shared his opinion on a product that he's actually taken. But you don't say anything to Sandy with her 1 post count talking all about her anus? PaleoHacks tweeted, asking if people had used Progenex. So I retweeted and asked real customers to share their thoughts. Stands to reason there will be some newbies on here, doesn't it?

Daniel, I'm an owner of the company, so you don't have to check for an IP. Since you've never placed an order with us, I think your qualifications to judge the efficacy of our products are somewhat limited. And by saying that "nobody uses Progenex anymore," you're simply reaffirming how out of the loop you really are, as anyone who spends any time in the CrossFit community can see that we're thriving just fine. JayJay, I'd agree with you that people will pay a premium for complete garbage - temporarily. But at some point, people stop paying for overpriced products if they don't work.

Did it make your anus bleed too? I don't know about you but I don't like it when my anus is dripping blood all the time. It's very embarrasing because people stop you on the street and they're like "you're bleeding from your ass" and then you're like "I know--I took some Progenex last night, it's a protein powder that makes your ass bleed" and then they're like "Gross, dude! YUCK!"

Perhaps you are late to the party, Aaron, or perhaps you have been in prison, or a cave, or perhaps you work for this crooked company, but the reason nobody uses Progenex any more is because it no longer works as advertised.

The original formula was wonderful--but anything currently sold under the Progenex name is simply overpriced whey protein.

The current formulation of Progenex is NOT the formula A. Scott Connelly brought to market. It is, simply, an extremely overpriced whey protein powder. If you want whey but do not want to be ripped off, some places to shop include http://www.nutraplanet.com and http://proteinfactory.com/shop/home.php .

I personally found that the Recovery does actually help my body recover faster post-WOD than some of the other less expensive proteins out there. I've tried a bunch and this one just does it for me. I'm currently doing some two-a-days in prep for the CrossFit Games Open and I can tell my body recovers faster between.

I also love that Progenex is so supportive of the CrossFit community - they show up at events and love CrossFit as much as I do.

They will also give you free samples if you ask - try it out! Do a WOD, take some after, and see how you feel. Then try other proteins after a WOD and see if you feel a difference the next day.

I used Progenex about a month ago. It tasted bad. The next day I started bleeding from my anus. I bled from my anus for THREE DAYS. It was awful. I lost a lot of muscle too. But I still had some Progenex left so after my butt felt better I tried it again. This time I bled from my anus for FIVE STRAIGHT DAYS. It was so bad I felt like I was a little boy and Progenex was Jerry Sandusky. After I got out of the hospital I set fire to the rest of my Progenex. I swear it screamed as it burned like something evil was in the jug and was dying. I'm okay now, thankfully.

Looks pretty harmless to me but "contains milk and soy".

but are you kidding! HAHA! $129 for 30 servings; talk about some sick profit margins.

Read the latest Consumer Reports article. Progenex was heavily contaminated with metals like cadmium, arsenic and lead. Whatever you do, don't drink this while you're pregnant, or want to become pregnant, or want to have kids some day if you're a guy.

I'm in the supplement industry and I know that the profit margins on whey is around the 7x to 8x range @ $129...

Understandable, you're trying to break even for all the marketing involved, what you guys probably paid in licensing to CrossFit to use the term "CrossFit" on your products and endorsements paid to athletes, but you're in the wrong forum if you're trying to peddle whey sups.

BTW Is that rain or piss falling on my head?

I know a lot of folks that only take the Recovery and no More Muscle or Vice Versa. Which then it's only like $60 a month. It really depends what your goals are. But I have to agree with Aaron, if people weren't seeing results, we wouldn't continue to buy it. It's like CrossFit memberships, why do we pay $150-$250 a month??? Because it works!

The soy in the product is simply a trace amount of soy lecithin to instantize, which most proteins contain. Also, the products referenced above are $125 for 60 servings, not 30 servings like San Diego Dude says. Like everything in life, you get what you pay for. If people weren't seeing results, they wouldn't continue paying a premium.

I personally was very skeptical when I first tried Progenex, but I did recover faster than with other protein powders that I'd tried. That being said I'm hyper aware of my recovery due to Ironman triathlon training (2-a-days).

I did write a review at http://allaroundjoe.com/progenex-recovery-supplement-review/ if anyone wants to read it.

I have tried pretty much every protein on the market and have not been more impressed with any as I am with progenex. I have seen huge gains in my performance and ability to recover easily from multiple WOD's a day. I don't know any other protein company that stands by their product as much as progenex or one that offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back. Progenex with out a doubt is the highest quality of hydrolyzed whey on the market and would definitely agree that you get what you pay for. It is worth the price and I would not sacrifice quality for quantity.
