    You want the shake immediately after you get done working out to stop the catabolic effect on your muscles. Within the first 30 mins after your workout is the "magic window", for you to get in your protein and carbs from your shake.

    A shake is not needed after you workout.

    there is no such thing as a magic window.

    Just eat a solid meal whenever you return home from the gym. You'll be fine. I promise.

    By "magic window", I only mean this is the best time period to get these nutrients into the body.

    I know that's what you meant, but still, there is no 30 minute window at all. I can assure you that nutrient uptake is good for more than a few hours after a workout. And also, with proper pre-workout nutrition he definitely has plenty of time to get a meal in. No unsatisfying dextrose shakes needed.

    I have no problem with being wrong. This is just from what I've read and learned from reading the forums. Obviously you guys have WAY more experience than I do, and I'm glad to have people like you around for your advice and wisdom.

    Also, why would I neg you after that? :P

    I mean.... You are so swoleeeeee so you definitely know what you are talking about. Hope you sense my sarcasm.

    He is right. There is no window. I can tell you from person experience I see no difference. Do I still drink a shake after? Yes but only because it's convient and cools me down.
