    How soon to drink a protien shake after workout????

    After my lifting workout i will usually run on the treadmill for 30-45 min, should I drink my protein shake after or before running? Also, what is a good protein power out there. I got a case of the Muscle Milk light from Costco but realized that the protein content is not specified, it does not say Whey protein. Should i change it up?

    Thanks!!!

    I assume that you have fallen for the supplement industry's favorite concept: the mythical need for immediate post-workout protein.

    Bro, you will do just fine having a shake after your cardio. In fact, you will not see any difference in body comp, if you skip the shake and just eat a chicken sandwich when you get home from the gym.

    If you don't have an iv of protein in by your last rep your doing it wrong.
    1 Corinthians 16:13
    Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.

    The man who yields to a particular temptation has not felt its full power. He has given in while the temptation has yet something in reserve. Only the man who does not yield to temptation. . . knows the full extent of that temptation.

    The thought of having a protein shake in my stomach while doing 45 minutes of cardio makes me shudder.

    OP, you'll be fine to wait until after your cardio. I agree with snorkelman.

    The only way to see gains from a protein shake is to keep your shaker cup with you during the entire workout and use it to catch EVERY drop of sweat (this increases bioavailability by 105%). If you sweat on the bench, use a paper towel to soak it up and drain it into the shaker cup (same thing applies for clothes).

    Once you've done that, it's imperative that you drink the sweat/protein powder concoction during the last rep of the last exercise while your targeted muscles are still under tension. If you mistakenly wait until the set is over, DO NOT drink the shake as it will be all but useless to do so. Instead, repeat the entire workout in reverse order (muscle confusion) and give yourself another shot at the last rep window.

    Most lifters don't notice a difference when supplementing with protein shakes because they think "timing is irrelevant" or "drinking your own sweat is broscience" or "IIFYM" or "protein is protein" which couldn't be further from the truth.
