Gatorade, Galactose and Hydration: Research based ingredients for optimal hydration
Hey Mike, Have you heard of G-Push?

I don’t know if the product is around anymore but they used a “secret” ingredient called galactose, which sounds like something found in Oakleys. ~Dan Thanks […]

The damn Dam Challenge
This past weekend, Melissa and I participated in The Dam Challenge, a paddle-bike-run triathlon in the beautiful and hilly Kickapoo Valley Reserve in Wisconsin. The Dam Challenge has become one of the most competitive events of its nature in the Midwest, albeit there aren’t a lot of paddling triathlons compared to the more popular swimming […]
A Family Summit of Mount Langley
This past July our family took an extended road trip to California. Hitting the road is nothing new to our family, as we try to take at least a couple of short trips each year. Although it is often not the focus of our adventures, we try to involve some sort of rock climbing or […]
Weekend Summary: Boulder Bash and a reunion with an old friend
In my opinion, there are few places more delightful than Wisconsin in fall and at the end of September we are quickly approaching peak coloration in the forests. This last week, mid-day highs still resembled August temperatures, but the cool evenings greatly reduce humidity and made for comfortable conditions. I broke out my down jacket for […]
Is there MSG in Mike’s Mix Whey Protein?
What is MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)? MSG is a flavor enhancer commonly added to canned foods, Chinese food, and other processed food products. It is the salt form of the amino acid glutamic acid. Glutamic acid (and not MSG) is found naturally in our bodies and in dietary protein sources (i.e. eggs, beef, beans, etc). Does […]

Whey Protein: Concentrate versus Isolate
Whey protein is commercially available in a number of different forms and concentrations. The two most common forms are whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. At Mike’s Mix, we have researched and experimented with both varieties, and currently use a high quality concentrate for our recovery drinks and protein powder. Although the two varieties […]
Adding Protein to your Post-Workout Recovery Drink
Want more Protein after your workout? Mike’s Mix’s recovery drinks provide 12 grams of protein per two scoop serving and the ratio of carbohydrate to protein is 4:1. Research has demonstrated that this ratio increases the rate of glycogen formation compared to carbohydrate alone, but as to date, there have been no studies comparing greater […]
Internet Customer Service: An Oxymoron?
It’s difficult to describe a commitment to customer service in just a couple of sentences. Additionally, many of us have become desensitized to clichés, such as commitment, dedication and money back guarantee that companies frequently use to describe their service. Too often, these words are only lip service, especially when dealing with online businesses where […]
