Stick to the basics like Whey protein after a workout, I make a smoothie....1.5 scoops of whey protein 1 frozen bannana and a small handful of frozen blueberries I add skim milk and a little bit of water to help if it is too thick of a shake. The fruit is just as good because this will help raise your insulin levels to help shoot that protein right into your system where it is needed so badly. That is important right after your workout. Try to take the shake within 15-20 min of the end of your workout. Sooner is even better! Good luck.

You only need whey and casein post workout. Other than that you just need to get some carbs and you are set to go.

i think its most important to just get calories in post work out and not worry about the smaller details like water vs milk or the ratios of c

Secondly, this is one the best times to try to achieve an insulin spike. Also, taking BCAA and will also help the muscles repair after working out. Studies also suggest this is the best time to take creatine, for which it will be the most effective.
More importantly, within 30-60 minutes post workout, the body begins to release the hormone cortisol, which is counter productive to building muscles. Taking a post work out supp that helps block cortisol will result in better gains.
My current ****tail for post workout includes: two scoops of afterglow, 10 extra grams of glutamine with BCAA, ISO-OPC, 30 grams unflavored whey protein, banana, and ice in a blender. About an hour later, I will eat my dinner to replace the carbs, etc. IMO opinion, post workout is more important than pre workout.
