best time to drink protein shake

Post by Jackass1986 »

I currently have 2-3 protein shakes per day,

1 in the morning with breakfast
1 after workout
1 before bed

just wondering, how long (if anything) to leave it after workout to drink the shake and get the most benefit from it???
(or does it really matter that much???)

Thanks,

Over Load

is it possible to over load?
For instance, If I come directly home and Have a slab of Steak, a side of veggies, and a potato with a Protien shake to chase it with... is that Too much???

it's hard to "overload" after working out as the body is soaking up what it gets for replenishment...if having the shakwe second it's probably not getting digested as it may be getting held up by the solid food which is another reason for having as soon as you finish

I think morning time is the best time to drink protein shake.Drink protein shake with your breakfast because it gives you energy whole the day.It helps to build your muscles.Always drink protein shake before your workout.

Even though I get the idea of a protein shake before a workout (to ensure that your levels are up) I would much rather have some simple carbs before I work out and then save protein shake for afterwards. That is going to help muscle grow better I believe.
