    When should I take my protein shake?

    I was thinking about supplementing my workout with a protein shake, but I was wondering when I should take it? My workout consists of weight training, then cardio afterwards. So, should I take my protein shake after my weight training or after my workout altogether (after doing the cardio)? Would it be too late (not as effective) to take it if I take it at the very end?

    Thanks

    Make sure you take your protein no later than 30-40 minutes after you work out!

    I'd say it depends on how long the cardio runs. If it's 20-30 mins of cardio just take your share immediately after that. if you're doing 45 mins to an hour of cardio i'd mix the shake up after lifting and drink it then or sip it through the cardio.

    Really it depends on your nutrition during the time before your workout. If you've had a good amount of protein and to an extend carbs/fat before the workout you'll be fine to take a shake post workout/cardio. If you've been fasting all day i would recommend a protein shake pre, and then either a meal post or a shake + meal post.

    ^^This. If you're taking BCAAs as well, you could also slam some down in between the weights and cardio, then a full shake after cardio. Of course, a real food meal is what your body really wants so be sure to eat within 90 minutes of starting your overall session.
