When is a good time to suck down a protein shake. Morning when I wake up, and pre and post workout?
before bed (11)
before AND after a workout
that's a lot of whey
no whey, real gay
I can't tell if you're saying it's gay to not use whey, or that whey is gay.
no, whey is
i have one when i'm feeling lazy and dont want to eat food
When I have enough money to go through a lot of it:
1 scoop pre-workout
2 scoops post-workout
1 scoop before bed
This is the best IMO. If you dont eat in the morning you might want one in the morning to replace pre-workout and just eat before the gym instead.... but I usually start my morning off with a good 40g worth of protein in food.
I don't know what kind of whey you use, but two scoops of mine mixed with milk is more protein than a body can process in a single serving.
I do one scoop with water pre workout and 2 scoops with milk post.
seems backwards to me. most say you should take it with water after your workout. Milk slows down absorbtion too much and your muscles need the protien after workout
I think dairy is way overrated and fucks most people up.
I'm pretty sure you're body can handle 30-40g of a fast acting protein after a strenuous depeletion session. So I'm gonna give you a big WTF here....

For Big Gains, you should intake a Gram to gram and half per pound (Body Weight).
If you have a good lean diet and that many shakes you'd be nearing 2 grams/lb for sure.
never knew that....good to know, thanks!
Thanks for the feeback.
How soon after your workout should you drink a protein shake? I ask cause I have a 45 minute drive to the gym...although I don't know if I'm working enough to need it though.
Why not just bring the powder in a shaker with you? Perhaps make a shake before you drive home?
It's not rocket surgery.....
I can't tell if that was on purpose or not, but it was funny either way.
I drink one when i wake up for and one after lifting.
Thats already 100g from shakes.
