    i think its what pushed me past the 225lb mark into the 240's. those extra cals are worth it in my opinion.

    Maybe if you wake up anyway but i would never get up just to do it. And if the shake is going to make you get up in an hour to use the bathroom then no!

    Sleep is just as important to recover and grow.

    Once I slam my casein shake and PB 1.5-2hrs before bed, THAT IS IT until my pre-workout shake in the morning. The day I set my alarm in the middle of the night just to eat is the day monkeys fly out of my butt.
