    Post Workout Whey

    Heres something thats been bothering me...

    Like most lifters, I take a whey shake after lifting. My problem is, I live about 20 min away from my gym. By the time I get in and mix it up, thats at least 30 or so min after I stop lifting.

    I hear people talking about chugging their whey AS SOON AS theyre done lifting. How do you guys do this? I cant keep it in the car, its too hot. I cant get it at my gym, its a YMCA.

    Any suggestions?

    is there some way you can freeze a portion of the water needed so by the time you are done training it will all be liquid and still cold ?

    Thats a good thought... I like to use milk though, not water.

    you shouldn't be using milk most workout, it slows the absorption of whey proteins. the purpose of using whey proteins is that they enter the bloodstream very rapidly in about 20 minutes when mixed with water and consumed on an empty stomach. when there is a sharp increase in amino acid (AA) concentration in the bloodstream protein synthesis is increased.

    and hey.. if that doesnt work out, its not gonna kill you waiting 30 minutes. i dont even use whey, so its sometimes almost an hour before my post workout meal. post workout shakes are helpful, but you dont NEED them by any means.

    sure you don't need them but if want to make the best out of your training you will use whey & carbs post workout. the data is out there and can not be disputed...

    You could always pack it in a small cooler. I put my shake in a shaker bottle and surround it in ice in a pitcher and leave it in my car. Even on hot days, there is still plenty of ice left.

    I put powder into my shaker and use the taps at the gym to fill it with cold water.

    if i'm not running late (i frequently am) i'll blend the shake at home in the blender, pour it into plastic container and put it in my little cooler w/an ice pack. (i use cold water and ice cubes in the blender)

    otherwise - i toss the powder in the container, add water from the fountain at the gym and drink it clumps and all.

    Yup - T'is what I do too and it gets the job done. it is simple and means I can start to drink with in a few minutes of stopping my workout.

    As for milk post-workout: Well, it is all a matter of personal choice.

    It doesn't interfere with whey absorption that greatly (meaning it does not slow down it's digestion and utilisation to any significant degree) and milk is highly insulinogenic (stimulates a high insulin release) and therefore helps in that regard too (that is, it will help blunt cortisol and help in energy uptake into muscles). It is also a good, natural source of proteins, carbs and electrolytes (as well as vitamins and mineral) and has a multitude of growth factors, immune-modulating factors and many other useful things in it - all good things which aid in recovery...

    Anyway - Milk in general is a highly anabolic food sources (you think of what it is actually created for!!), so I say if you want it, have it post-workout...

    how can you say that it is a mattter of personal choice when all of the ALL of the recent studies use whey and/or a BCAA combo only for post workout to maximize the anabolic window ? precision timing is what taking advantage of the anabolic window of oppurtunity is about.

    there is not one study out there that shows caesin is superior for post workout to maximize anabolic activity and increase MPS...anybody who is serious about building LBM will use a whey protein fraction for post workout

    She is just referring to the choice of milk or water in your whey protein shake. Not saying that whey or not whey is a matter of choice.

    I used to have a post workout shake that included milk but have since then changed, and to be honest, I don't see much of a difference besides the fact that I try and chug the whey so fast so I don't have to taste it.

    Nonetheless, I will continue to do it the way I am doing it.
