  2. Whenever I canít meet my daily protein requirement with whole food. Or if Iím in a hurry and need something to hold me over till my next meal

  3. Personally I focus alot on nutrient timing. I always either eat protein or drink a shake about an hour before training, I drink hydro whey during the workout, and eat a meal after.

    Shakes to me are basically just a tool, though they are not as optimal as whole food, they are convienient, and with some healthy fats make a great meal replacement.

    Do you think that having your shakes preworkout like mentioned in the article holds more merit than postworkout?

    If training fasted I like the idea of protein preworkout with a simple carb source

  6. I drink mine post workout with 30-40g of carbs

  7. I don't really drink protein anymore, unless on cycle.

    Off cycle, I will have one scoop a day, maybe, post workout in overnight oats. If I am squatting or deadlifting, sometimes I will add a half scoop to some non fat Greek yogurt. I like something light in my stomach when I deadlift and squat, so a bar or Greek yogurt with some powder sites better than whole food.

    On cycle, same thing, but I will also drink 1.5 scoops right after my training. My protein intake is higher on cycle, so I will utilize a little more powder.

    That makes sense. I find I went through a time where I didn't use any powder either, I never have a problem eating protein, and I'd rather food than a shake. I can easily hit 3-400g in meat fish eggs and yogurt without even trying, as long as I'm eating sun up to sun down. But currently I'm fasting through the am, doing cardio midday, then eating for a few hours up until my workout. Because I have less time to consume everything, shakes help. Plus I also like the flavor. Kills my sweet cravings.

    I use unflavored whey hydrolosate. Mixed with glycofuse, karbolyn, creatine, glutamine, eaas

    Tastes like fruit punch, no after taste, nothing. Hydrolosate is very clean

    yeah whey during a workout especially in the summer is not something that would interest me in the least....that's why I love amino products, they are lighter and have a more enjoyable flavor when sweating

  12. some say its all about the overall protein amount you get in a day, so timing of the shake shouldn't matter.....I disagree with that logic though

    you want to maximize protein synthesis multiple times during the day....so a shake can be used between meals that are spaced out kind of far....for example with my work schedule, I have lunch at 12pm...I work until 415 and hit the gym after, so i'll have a preworkout shake because I'm probably not eating until like 6 or 630....on the other hand if your eating 5oz's of chicken for a meal, adding a protein shake with that meal really doesn't benefit you as much

  14. THE BEST TIME TO DRINK YOUR PROTEIN SHAKE


    I have a shake 2 hours after breakfast in between lunch. And then one post workout which is before my evening meal. And then one just before bed. Carbs depends on cycles. Protein is around 50g a shake. No idea if its right. Just try get protein in every couple hours or so.

  15. After s e x preferably. Nothing like knocking back a double scoop after kicking some back doors in

    When are Carbs and Protein VERY Important Post-workout?

    Carbs:
    - During leg Training + HIIT Cardio or doing a 2-3 hour intense workout session
    Protein:
    -Resistance Training in a fasted state (no meal consumed at least 3-4 hours prior)

    When are Carbs and Protein of lesser importance Post-workout?

    Carbs:
    - 1-2 hour training session after a pre-workout meal (Small or mixed 2-3 hours prior to session)
    Protein:
    - Training after a meal composed of 20-40g Protein at least 1-2 hours prior to a workout in a fed state.

    Overall Cliffs:

    - Nutrient Timing can be beneficial but window of opportunity is not as big as believed
    - Provided protein rich meal 3-4 hours prior to training, there is no stress about immediate post-workout protein supplement or meal
    - Consume .4-.5g/kg of LBM in a pre/post workout exercise window spaced 4-6 hours depending on meal size.
    - Post workout carb intake does not meaningful increase aabolicsm unless doing a 2 a day workout session involving same muscle groups. Glycogen is not a limting factor if you can consume enough Carbohydrates daily in the 24 hour period.

    Given most people will train with a pre-workout meal it will still be digesting into the post-workout period. there would be 0 need to have a protein shake instantly right after training unless it was a fasted workout where you would need to stop catabolism.

    Most people who train have a shake right after and then a meal 60 minutes later which does not have much merit at all. This is actually detrimental to MPS (Muscle Protein Synthesis) as its better to space your meals out and protein feedings at least 4-6 hours apart. The need for a shake and then a whole food meal where your spiking MPS twice in 60 minutes is not necessary. At the end of the day meeting protein and spacing your feedings to at least 4-5x a day equally apart has been shown to be best for Muscle Protein Synthesis and how to allocate your protein intake.

    So the answer is simple.
    Do you eat enough protein to reach 1g/lb (as a minimum)? If you do you don't need to SUPPLEMENT protein shakes or protein powder
    Protein powder is simply that. A tool to help you supplement your protein intake when you cannot reach it via whole foods. While it is convenient and a cheaper alternative to some whole food sources it is not 100% necessary. Since it is heavily processed and voided of micronutrients whole foods will always reign supreme.

    Get a "thin" (not loaded with thickeners like guar gum, etc...) vanilla and add it to 20oz of white or light blue gatorade - you'll never know its protein.

    Typo? should be "small"? "window" is bigger than promoted, ie. "bro, if you don't down your shake 37 seconds after your done, you'll lose muscle" :-)

    good synopsis though.

    I should have mentioned these are not the "best" times, just times when I use powders. I don't think there is a best/optimal time.

    Just to be clear I'm not mixing some chocolate protein with my shake. Whey hydrolosate and casein hydrolosate (Pepto pro) are far superior to aminos ( they are predigested, mix thin and provide a full aimno acid content. They don't have any taste when you mix with other flavored ingredients. My recovery with them intra workout vs with just aminos has been night and day so I personally continue to use them. I train roughly 2 hour sessions and I almost never get sore anymore.

    This, It does not mix or have the consistency of protein powder. Think of AEN Intrabolic or IntraMax. Both use WPH. WPH is thicker than your typical BCAA powder, but not by much.

    Why did they stop making intrabolic?
