Post-workout

  1. Post-workout


    Is it better to take a serving of creating or protein after a workout?


  2. Protein, creatine you can take whenever and it builds up in your system. Protein is best taken right before and or right after your workout to help your muscles repair

  3. This depends on many factors...perhaps most improtantly - but certainly not limited to - goal.

    In other words, many people try and blanket macronutrient ingestion (Protein, Carbs, Fats) for all people but this is an oversimplification.

    Sometime (more often than not), pre-workout macronutrients do NOT leave you hormonally optimized (most will talk GH indction, but my bigger concern is catecholamine).

    Creatine - you could actually make arguments for both pre and post. There are some neurocognitive options to take creatine pre-workout; however, if solely talking ergogenesis by way of increaing muscle phosphagen stores; mitch is correct.
