    Best Post Workout Shake


    2 Scoops of Chocolate Whey - My favorite is ON Gold Standard
    1 slightly overripe banana - couple brown spots on the peel
    12 ounces of water
    2 tablespoons of powdered milk
    2 tablespoons of chunky peanut butter

    Throw the first 4 ingredients in the blender and beat the crap out of it - then add the peanut butter at the very end. Its dessert in a glass (can also add creatine or other supps if needed)

    timberlakers,

    I love that recipe. I have been doing that for years. I also add a little vanilla if I am using unflavored protein. It makes a great snack.

    I like
    A little honey
    A little vanilla
    Whey
    Banana
    Peanut Butter
    Ice
    and
    Water

    Its pretty good.
    Thanks for the great idea DreamofWeight. Ill give it a try tonight and see how I like it.

    When do you guys make these shakes???
    Do you make them prior to the workout and take them to the gym with you? or do you wait until you get home and have at it?

    3hours is a bit much isnt it? I've always been told within 30mins is the best time to eat after a workout.

    I don't know what you mean there, i didn't say i'd take protein for the cals. I mean't i'd take a extra shake at the end of the day if i needed to bump up my cals a bit. All my shakes are high in carbs and protein

    chub; i was confused with ur though process on why u take a protein such as whey at night.... im not trying to act up.... but u should try a slow processing protein at night... it will help nurish ur body thoughout ur sleep.... as well as help to keep u anabolic.. if im not mistaken

    I don't usually use a lot of whey supplements at night. They seem to give me the runs lol. only if i'm serious bulking. I try to keep it all to wholefoods as much as possible. What kinda slow processing protein are you talking about? as i can't really think of any :P

    All my friends talk about wanting to get memberships and coming with me... eventually I just stopped calling them to come with me. They used up all my guest passes then decide to give up lifting. a true letdown. So I made friends with some guys at the gym! they can atleast lend a spot and someone to talk with while waiting for a bench.

    Inarius,

    I'm a Penn State Alum... You at UP? What gym you hittin up? White?

    The money gets easier man... Make sure you take care of yourself first... I know how fast the money goes at PSU... freakin Cafe 2 dollar teas.

    And I think you got the right advice here. Pound the protein shakes as soon as you put the weights down. I usually put it in a bottle and chug it on the walk home.

    Last night I did legs and abs.. There is one decline bench with grips at the top for leg raises (elevated) that I pretty much own every night.

    There was a fat guy on it with a weight vest doing these terrible situp looking things, which he might as well have been doing on the floor.

    I just wanted to be like... dude... cardio.
