Rockin’ Refuel Helps NBA Player Learn Lacrosse

DeAndre Jordan

PHOENIX — Rockin’ Refuel by Shamrock Farms is teaming up with basketball star DeAndre Jordan to teach him the fastest growing sport in America – lacrosse! As the basketball season comes to an end and the lacrosse season heats up, Jordan partnered with the 2012 professional outdoor lacrosse MVP and fellow Team Rockin’ Refuel member, Brendan Mundorf, to learn the basics of the game, including passing, cradling, shooting and using the proper equipment.

Jordan is the newest member of Team Rockin’ Refuel, an elite group of athletes and fitness advocates who drink the natural protein milk beverages to assist them in muscle building and recovery. Known for his slam dunks and powerful presence in the post, Jordan has emerged as one of the top young centers in the league. Jordan also has made a name for himself off the court by starring in several viral videos that showcase his sense of humor which has made him a fan favorite in Los Angeles.

“My game on the court is all about dunking, blocking and being physical in the paint so I need protein to rebuild muscle,” said Jordan. “That’s why after practices and games, I drink Rockin’ Refuel because not only does it have the ideal 2:1 carb to protein ratio to rebuild my muscles, it’s also made with real milk so it tastes great.”

Whether their game is on the lacrosse field or the basketball court, proper nutrition is important for all athletes to bring their game to the next level.  Made with real milk, Rockin’ Refuel is now available in three varieties that offer athletes the high quality protein they need to rebuild and build muscles:

  • Intense Recovery is the protein beverage of choice at more than 150 college and university athletic departments and is available in chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. It has grown in popularity among competitive athletes because of its great taste, natural protein and 2:1 carb to protein ratio – proven to be the ideal ratio to maximize muscle recovery.
  • Muscle Recovery features 17 grams of protein and offers the same 2:1 carb to protein ratio as Intense Recovery with 50 percent less sugar and 20 percent fewer calories.
  • Muscle Builder is designed for athletes who are looking to get ripped. Packed with 30 grams of protein and only nine net carbs, the drink offers athletes looking to build muscle the perfect balance of protein to carbs either before or after they workout.

“Rockin’ Refuel provides the protein and nutrition athletes in every sport need to succeed, with the great taste they crave,” said Shamrock Farms Brand Manager, Blake Atkinson. “By partnering with elite athletes like DeAndre Jordan and Brendan Mundorf, our brand is demonstrating that no matter what sport you play, what you put inside your body is important to achieve the results you want.”

In addition to working with Mundorf to teach Jordan how to play lacrosse, Rockin’ Refuel partnered withInside Lacrosse to sponsor top-tier college lacrosse events this past spring. Rockin’ Refuel also will be sampling at high school lacrosse tournaments throughout this summer.
