    Protein Shake everyday, or on workout days?

    I workout about 3 times per week. I weigh about 135 and am 5'6. I have a new protein supplement that's 130 calories per serving w/ 52g of protein per serving. I'm pretty toned just not 'big' so I'm wondering is it because I'm only drinking protein shakes on workout days? Should I drink two servings of the drink on workout days (morning then immediately after workout) and then drink one serving (morning) on off days?

    Also I'm thinking about changing my routine to this:
    Mon: Arms/Chest/Shoulders
    Tues: Rest
    Wed: Core/Back
    Thurs: Rest
    Friday: Arms/Chest/Legs
    Sat: Rest
    Sun: Rest


    Thanks, glad to finally be on the forum!

    protien is a meal so u eat it anytime ur not eating a meal like between lunch and dinner
    morninng evening anytime u want and i think it should be everyday
    i used to drink it when i go out to somewhere that i wont find a good time to eat healthy meal . but nothing is wrong in bodybuilding, u can take it any day u want but for best result i think everyday is cool
    yup chest and bieceps twice a week is fair enough
    i read alot about protiens and thats what i know, i had problems with my arms before and twice a week fixed it so much
    no pain no gain ;p
    and good luck
    pst : sorry for my bad english ;p

    You should at least add another 1000 claories.

    1g protein per lb of body wieght EVERYDAY.

    Shakes are only usually for post workout or if you did not attain that 1g/lb. It's a supplement, meaning supplemental.

    I drink 2 shakes a day each are about 800 calories.

    You need protein on off days too because your muscles are growing OUTSIDE of the gym.


    Also, what's your height, body fat %, weight, age, and are you really active or somewhat active or not very active.

    Once you find your maintenance you are going to want to eat 500 calories over it every day consistently and every few weeks bump it up in relation to your maintenance as it grows with muscle growth. Keep track of what your eating online or with a dietary journal. Diet is absolutely important. Your muscles will not grow without eating over maintenance.
