    why not?

    if your cutting, take it with water. if your bulking, go nuts with milk.


    my workout session ended at 9pm, slammed a protein shake w/water as soon as i got home, ate some food, and gonna slam another one down at midnight.

    Its absolutely fine, but you might want to look at a more substantive, longer digesting protein, like meat or cottage cheese.

    Whey digests really quickly, which means your body will be catabolic longer. Meat or cottage cheese (my pre-bed protein) takes longer to digest, so your body is turning on for so long.

    I usually have a whey shake when I get back from the gym at 8 or 9 and then have either some meat or some of my fresh off the truck casein at about 12-1.
