    I lift every day 5 days a week at around 5-7pm. After my workout, I usually hit a punching bag for cardio for around 20 minutes. Before hitting the bag, I used to just mix the shake as soon as I was finished with my lift, and drink it immediately. Since hitting the bag, I have been drinking the shake inbetween the lift and the boxing. Is this a bad idea? Should I wait till the lift AND cardio are finished?

    Not sure it'll make much of a difference.. I personally would drink after the cardio to be sure it isn't burned as energy..

    In my opinion, very important. Take it sometime during the day. Post workout would be great.

    most people would say to take it as fast as you can after your workout..which i guess includes cardio
