Hurricane XS is an all-in-one supplement that is designed as both a post-workout supplement and meal replacement. The composition of the supplement is primarily made up of slow digesting carbohydrates. The slow digesting carbohydrate composition facilitates a sustained release of energy that should, ideally, last throughout the session and for several hours thereafter.
A sustained release formula may also facilitate a healthier rate of tissue growth over an extended period of time. The particular form of protein chosen to create Hurricane XS is a blend of Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate.
Hurricane XS is manufactured by MyProtein, which has developed into the number one sports nutrition brand in Europe. Founded in 2004, the company has currently operated for approximately 12 years and has expanded into the United States of America. The company has received HFL accreditation and certification for both GMP Compliance and HACCP Standards adherence.
Composition and design
Whey Protein Isolate has been recognized as one of the most reliable protein powder formulas on the market, praised for its ability to supplement lean muscle growth and repair following particularly strenuous workouts. In addition to the protein content, creatine is also included in the composition.
There are 5 grams of Creapure creatine in every serving, which some users might find to be beneficial for the facilitation of increased lean mass and lifting strength. Creapure is created from a pure variation of monohydrate powder.
Hurricane XS also contains 1.5 grams of HMB, which is intended to work against catabolism for the development of lean muscle tissue. Hurricane XS is essentially designed for both serious athletes and recreational users alike. Naturally, athletes with a regular schedule of intense activity will be able to experience the full benefits of the supplement more readily.
Recommended use and expectations
Customers are recommended to take two daily servings of Hurricane XS, one in the morning and one immediately following an intense workout. If you work out in out in the early morning, then the first serving may be taken pre-workout while the other serving should be taken six hours later. As a post-workout supplements, the highest degree of effectiveness will be made available if the athlete pairs their use of the supplement with a quality training program.
Without sufficient training, the supplement will not be as effective. The potential gains in both muscle strength and size will be contingent upon the dietary choices of the user, as the use of the supplement will facilitate an easier time developing larger muscle mass and strength with sufficient protein intake.

It is recommended that customers take the supplement with 350 mL of water or milk in a shaker. The less liquid that is used with the powder, the thicker the resulting shake will be. After pouring water or milk into the shaker, two large standard issue scoops (70 g) should be added. After adding the scoops, the mixture can be simply shaken and immediately consumed.
For every 70 g of the supplement, the nutritional profile is as follows:
- Energy: 901.8kJ and 219.3cal

The customer reception to Hurricane XS has been largely positive. One customer testified that they were particularly pleased with the way that the supplement saved them a significant amount of time. Rather than needing to eat all of their post-workout carbohydrates individually, the customer reported that the supplement allowed them to get all of the post-workout carbs in one fell swoop for a great value.
Another customer testified that they had picked up the supplement on sale just to try something new. After trying it for the first time, the customer was pleased enough by the protein powder to report that it was one of the best they had ever had. The customer found that the powder mixed very smoothly and tasted much more pleasant than the typical powder in their experience. The customer reported that the addition of creatine in carbohydrates was highly beneficial for lowering the usual amount of muscle soreness that they would generally feel on the day following a workout.
In another testimony, a customer reported that they would generally prefer to take their protein powders with water, and they found that this particular supplement worked well with water too. The customer did report that because of creatine addition, it was very common to find just a tiny lump or two at the bottom, though they did not find this to be any significant detriment to the quality. The customer found that just about everything that a regular strength trainer would need is made available by Hurricane XS in abundance.
The period of time immediately following a strenuous workout is considered by many athletes to be the most critical moment to receive proper muscle supplementation; essentially, Hurricane XS is designed to make the most of that critical workout window.
The sustained carbohydrate release may potentially lend itself towards a more substantial insulin response, which is the key behind providing the muscles with vital amino acids. While it is certainly possible to facilitate a better overall rate of progress through consistent post-workout supplementation, the best results will only be made possible if the athlete ensures that they facilitate proper health through adequate sleep and dietary control as well.
The effectiveness of Muscle XS has been positively testified to by a number of customers with sufficiently active lifestyles, and it should be expected that any prospective customers who want to anticipate the same results should also make a point to maintain an appropriate level of activity in their weekly schedule.
