I like to mix my vanilla whey protein with Blue Demon Full throttle energy drink for my PW shake. I mix ~45 grams of whey protein with the 16oz can. My theory is that malodextrin and sugar in Blue Demon will provide the neccesary insulin spike to boost protein synthesis boost workout. An hour after this shake, I like to have a balanced meal with additoinal protein (from lean meat) and complex carbs. Any thoughts on this approach? Any alternative approaches?

how so? in theory, energy drinks with malodextrin cause an insulin spike which is ideal post workout. add in whey protein...money

Its not ideal unless the carbs come from all dextrose/malto. And even then I'd say all that caffeine isn't good pw. You want to be hydrated after working out not dehydrated. Drink a lot water before during and after if you are going to continue to drink it. Creatine won't mix too good with caffeine either because they are doing the opposite of each other.

This looks like the worst PW shake I've ever seen, but it works for you then so be it.
