Do you really need to have a protein shake RIGHT AFTER or BEFORE your workout to see the most muscle gain?
Many people believe drinking a protein shake within 30-60 minutes “anabolic window” of exercise will maximize their results in the gym as muscles are more sensitive to protein and therefore more likely to absorb and use protein immediately after exercise than they are later throughout the day.
This is one of the most common things beginners get confused with.❌
Research suggests it doesn’t matter whether you drink a protein shake before or after your workout. Your total daily protein intake is what matters most, both foods and supplements can help you meet your goals.✔️
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for good health is 0.8-1g/kg of protein of body weight.
An endurance athletes need roughly 1.1-1.3 g/kg of protein of bodyweight, and other athletes who routinely strength train might need to consume roughly 2g/kg of protein of bodyweight if they’re looking to build muscle.
To make the most of your training, consume a meal within an hour after your workout containing both fast digesting carbs and protein. This will prevent your body from using its own muscle tissue for energy and help encourage muscle synthesis.💪🏻
