i am sorry if this is a big repeater question but really, i usually do cardio after my workouts, when is that magic 60 min. of absorbtion up?
does the timer start when i am done with weights, or just when my body is slowing down from exercise, in otherwords, when i stop being active?

I'm a believer of not mixing cardio work with your weightlifting. They need to be done at separate times during the day, not right before or after each other. Your muscles have to be at their strongest to achieve maximum growth stimulation. You won't be strongest if you've tired yourself out with cardio before you hit the weights. If you do cardio immediately following your workout, you'll miss out on the 45-minute window of opportunity to start the anabolic growth and recovery phase by consuming your whey protein, simple carbs and creatine. I would do your cardio first thing in the morning or in the evening. IMO

Hopes this helps.
