    Sure. Some People Sip their Post workout shake throughout their workout , others drink it half way through , or sip it for the last half of their workout etc.
    Most though Save it till after their workouts ..
    It's really up too you. Experiment and see what works best with you and your goals.

    i didn't realize my question was such a newbie question.......as to invoke possible jokes. i have always heard that you shouldn't consume anything when working out because it diverts blood from your muscles to your digestive system or something to that effect.

    At my usual gym one TIME out of the 4 - 5 times a week i go there, i see this big humunogous guy, probably late 30's or early 40's. He has a ziploc bag and some food in it, and hes eating it between sets. I ask him what it is, he says "chicken and rice". I mean..i dont know if thats good? but he loooked in great shape!

    u r right just do the math...u'll be burning much calories during the workout if u drink the protein shake while u r working out u'll have a good chance to burn it as an energy source when ur carb levels are low ... also ur stomach will be busy digesting it because protein is not easily digested so u may feel dizy....
    the only food that is digested easily is simple carbs and sugars....(fruits(bananas) sweets(honey)...u could eat those during ur workout if it's long........those have high glycemic index so they'll raise blood sugar levels imediatly and may help u to complete ur workout if taken in small amounts...but high glycemic index food is not good preworkout...only during ur workout also u could eat them post workout with protein ..because they cause an insulin spike wich will help carying amino acids to the muscles........

    ever tried doing squats with something in your stomach, such as a protein shake? I can't find a reason you should drink one during your workout, you need to worry about a good pre and post workout meal to maximize your results.

    So he meant that you would be wasting your time if you didn't? If that is what he meant, he was wrong. I never drink shakes during my workout and I have no trouble putting on muscle.

    You can have a pre-workout feed and a post workout shake (refeed) - thats practical nutrient timing. You do NOT need to consume protein during a workout. I wouldn't. Its going to interfere with hydration needs during exertion, and that may cause other problems. As pointed out, nausea during high intensity workouts of large muscle groups, usually in the lower body is common.
