Always been a fan of the Combat range, esp Vanilla, but I'm currently on the capuccino flavor and can only best be described as slightly above average.
Great with milk and frozen banana as an occasional iced coffee though! Just not one I can have every time
Got a few bags of the 7 serve cookies & cream samples.
Very fine protein, mixes extremely well, very thin though, tastes fantastic with whole milk.
Use it as my every day protein, quite sweet indeed, normally pour a full shaker full of milk to compensate and balance it out.
I'm not really a fan of CnC flavoured protein so didn't like the flavour too much.
I found it too sweet, and mixibility isn't great with the cookie crumbs and lumps.
If you're a fan of CnC flavoured protein you'll probably enjoy this though.
Amazinggggggggg! Snap fitness rangiora loved it! Great Choc mint flavour and great variety of all your protein sources mixed into one!
I tried this in oats and found it mixed really well, had a slightly odd & curdled texture, and medium sweetness. Overall, a good experience :)
Combat is a great high protein low fat low carb protein shake. Nothing extra to add since we all know this.
However I just had the Choc Mint. Mixed in water and OMG the best choc mint alive ever experienced.
No need for an after dinner mint or mint slice with this in the house.
Makes for the BEST craving crusher after dinner!!!!!
Cheers to Varis & Xplosiv for the sample!
I received cookies and cream and on this compare it to Cellucor & Balance CnC's.
Flavour was outstanding! quite sweet compared to others but damn was it a treat!
Not the cleanest of proteins but still has a nice blend of proteins and some added BCAA's,which i don't think are added to the protein count.
Blended perfectly in my Xplosiv shaker and i was left with a creamy white and black spotted milkshake.
Definitely one of the better CnC's ive had,more of a treat protein imo.
Ok, so this is my first review, please bare with me.....
I have just finished my third tub of MusclePharm Combat protein, and I have to say I have been pleased with the product and its results.
Combat is a protein blend which consists of whey isolate, whey hydroslate, micellar casein and egg white albumen - the claim here is that the product feeds muscles for 8 hours. Further to this Combat contains 130 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 5 grams carbs and 24 grams of protein per serving with claims of added BCAA via a 'multi level amino growth matrix'(exact composition of which is unspecified) - all in all a reasonably clean protein blend with time release which is ideal for those on the go, like me.
Effectiveness: I experienced reasonable lean muscle gains using Combat in conjunction with a reasonably intensive training regime (6 day split) and clean diet. I can not attribute the gains solely to Combat as I was stacking with intra amino drinks however I am pleased with the effectiveness of the product 8/10
Mix-ability: I use a standard shaker and never experienced any clumping 10/10
Taste: As outlined above i have tried three flavours here, Chocolate, Triple Berry and Smores. Chocolate was great, you typically cant go wrong with Chocolate and MusclePharm have delivered here. The Triple Berry and Smores flavours were too sweet and the smores flavour had little marshmallows which sounds fantastic, however are better described as small pieces of teeth destroying gravel - certainly not my cup of tea. 7/10.
Value - The Combat tub is slightly smaller at 4lbs than other big name tubs of similar nature, making it comparatively less reasonable on a $/serve basis. However in my opinion Combat is a product worth a go for those looking to put on lean muscle mass.
Overall a solid protein blend, I would certainly buy again and happily recommend to those looking for a clean time release protein.
The protein powder isn't as fine as other's I've tried, but still mixes relatively well even in large volumes (little/no clumping).
Choc tasted really sweet with very little chocolate flavour followed by a bit of an unpleasant after-taste.
I've always been put off by sweet sickly flavours... but man the cookies and cream musclepharm combat was delish... yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum. Mixes well too yum yum yum
Taste- 8-10 Had cookies and cream, at first i had 2 scoops with 600ml of water and flavor was not that great but cutting the water down to around 400ml you got a real nice flavor to it.
Consistency 8-10. You did get a few lumps now and then but if you shake it for long enough you really got no lumps.
Formula 9/10. Iv used 4 containers of this product and has helped me a long way. Iv noticed build of muscle and feeling good after having the protein don't feel bloated or anything like that.. So Highly recommend!!
Taste - 6/10 Cookies and Cream
Consistency - 8/10
Formula - 7/10
Overall score - 7/10
I found it hard to get through the tub as it was too sweet for me.
Vanilla flavour is pretty legit. Creamy and tasty but overly sweet.
Always a little lump or 2 when I shake it. I try adding more liquid to alter the ratio but still small lumps that get stuck on my teeth.
Been using this product for a couple of months and have noticed alot of benefits and quality gains. I used to be on ON Gold standard whey but didnt see much benefit over a 6 month period. So this MP blend is good for me for now
Overall I would recommend this product to anybody looking for a good blend of clean protein
I had banana, taste was ok. Didn't mix very well in water, tastes better with milk. I occasionally got headaches in the morning when I took this on a empty stomach. I felt the difference in training after taking this for a few weeks however, I felt stronger and could lift heavier.
Good protein. Nothing special about it but great tasting and high protein. Recommend if you just want a average protein. Still does the job but nothing amazing.
Love this stuff. Have had vanilla, choc and cookies and cream and each one tastes awesome. Highly recommended.
Love the idea of time released protein and added amino acids etc, but in order to get the benefits of this you need to actually be able to swallow the stuff. I got a tub of the banana and could barely stomach it because it was so sweet (even with water), ended up using the majority of the tub in smoothies and putting it in cookies to try and mask the taste. A bit gutted after paying $99 for 4lb
Great protein, I've been using this same protein for about 3months now & it's given me the most results I've ever had before.
Taste - 8/10
Consistency - 9/10
Formula - 9/10
Overall score - 9/10
Tried the chocolate flavour and really enjoyed it, best chocolate flavour shake I've tried, no weird after taste and actually was like chocolate!
I mix with water in a blender and take pre-blended shakes with me if i need them, so no issues with mixing.
I would love to try the other flavours too!
Have had 3 tubs of this protein, CNC and chocolate peanut butter, the CNC is the best CNC i have tried from many different brands, the chocolate peanut butter just tasted like chocolate, bit of a let down there!
As for mix ability, not that impressed! mixes good in water for post workout, with milk at bedtime it mixes average, quite a few lumps and wastage in the shaker.
Taste is smooth and sweet and easy to drink.
Would only buy this again on special for $79, wouldnt pay full price as to expensive for what it is otherwise.
Just finished another tub of this and this time cookies and cream. Not my favourite of the Combat flavours but pretty decent. Overall though, I find the consistency of this protein just too thin and given the price it doesnt work out too cost effective when I need to double scoop.
Solid protein, tastes great - I love the vanilla, not a huge fan of the triple berry personally.
Mixes well, solid ingredient profile
Smores. A term I've heard on American shows for years but never really quite understood what the hell they were. It was with great interest that I ripped into this sample.
Taste 10/10 DAYUM. So sweet. Almost caramel choc flavoured? LOVED IT.
Consistency 5/10 While it shook up with no problem, the 'smores' themselves are quite crunchy, like little lollies in the shake. As a novelty this is quite fun, and for a whey for during the day at the office it's a neat little treat, also being that it's so tasty. However straight after a workout, where you are at the gym and want to slam it back, or even with 2 scoops (as I often do post workout) the chunks might slow you up a bit.
Formula: 8/10 24g Protein, 5g carb with 1g sugar is about the average range I look for these days. The label boasts a hefty amount of bcaas - most powders do so I never really take too much notice tbh.
Overall: 8/10 Super yummy, nice n crunchy (yes, I used the word 'fun'!), but may not be good for when I really need it - post workout. Average formula at a glance but nothing wrong with that. Nearly as expensive as some of the top shelf wheys.
Thanks xplosiv for the sample!!
Best tasting Protein powder I've ever tried - makes me realise how 'powdery' other brands are... also still tastes pretty good with just water. Chocolate Milk's the way to go.
Have tried this product a few times and I must say that I do rate it.
Nice flavours (which is important if you have a large tub! ) and mixes well. Price is consistent with other proteins powders of similar size. Didn't get an upset stomach with this at all which I have found with some other protein powders.
Tasted a few flavours- vanilla prop my favourite- delish. Mixes easily with water and milk with no obvious lumps floating around. So with a great taste and a decent price, its welll worth a go :)
This is another great product mixes very well with water as I only liked it with water, But I have to agree with KIWIDAN just a bit sweet for my taste!
A great product with amazeballs taste!! This really blew my socks off. You can use it in so many ways. I will be buying this again no problems. Thanks heaps to xplosiv for hooking me up with this tub through an online prize I had cookies and cream...yum...full review on forum
Received my cookies and cream last week, best tasting protein i've tried, (tried over 30) . mixes really well, tastes great with water.
Just arrived this morning. Vanilla. I've tried probably 20+ different proteins and this, WOW. New favorite no contest!
Maaaaannnnn!! Bought me a tub of the Orange Creamsicle flavoured Combat. Holy crap! So delicious! Definitely recommend this flavour and can't wait to try some of the others. Mixes well, formula is good, price isn't too bad. Well worth the purchase :D
I've been really lucky to get a tub off a friend who is heading overseas and he has only just got it. Chocolate tastes amazing! I mixed it with water and it was really good. Protein mixes really easy, no clumps, no left overs. I just used my shaker with a stainless ball. The ingredients of this look really really good. Only thing I don't understand is why is it only made in a 4lb and costs $99.00. So if I was to buy this off the shelf it is a bit pricey, however a very good product.
One of the best protein powders i have use. Great taste - So good i look forward to havong it unlike other brands I have used. You also feel good after it no bloated feeling or anything. Will be using this for a while.
this stuff was amazing, wasn't expecting this. i am hooked after my first serving. wont switch another brand.
feels great after taking it.
Great Protein, it's probably the best I have tried so far. The chocolate flavour is really tasty, I agree with others in that it is quite sweet but I personally like that. It mixes really well and tastes awesome with both milk & water.
I would give it a 10/10 if it were a bit cheaper as it's getting up there in price, but I guess you pay for quality.
Recently received a tub of this from Xplosiv supplements with a free pack of MusclePharm CLA which was an awesome deal, I’m looking forward to trying the cookies & cream flavour!
-Nice tasting protein (had vanilla)
-Mixes really well with water and milk
-Ingredients look great and high protein content
-Price could be a little cheaper but you pay more for a quality product
I bought the Chocolate flavour. It tastes ok. Mixes well, is just a bit sweet for my tastes. But overall a solid product.
Bought a tub of the Cookies & Cream because it came with the cla and the taste is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!
Best bannana protein I have ever tried. Tastes just like those bannana party mix lollies only better for you. It is quite sweet as others have said and even more so with milk but even with water it tastes like a treat that shouldnt be good for you.
Mixes easily in the shaker and combines very well with chocolate flavour if you want to try a scoop of each to get a flavour very close to a Perkynana chocolate bar.
Excellent protein overall that keeps me going back for more.
Have gone through a tub of both Choc and Banana in this and I must say it is a mighty fine drop the both of them. The Banana is probably the best of lot and by far the best Banana protein I've tried. I just wish they made them in 5lb tubs instead of 4.4lb! a 10lb bag would be magical also.
My favorite protein of all time.. Musclepharm don't seem to go wrong on anything they do..
As for combat it would be classed as a middle ground in thickness between myofusion and whey which is just right for my liking.. In terms of the taste I've tried Banana, Vanilla, Chocolate, and they're all extremely good, although some people might find it a little sweet but it suits me perfectly. :)
