In addition to my running, I'm working through the P90X routines and I'm working on building lean muscle and some mass in some (to me) lackluster muscle groups. Since I'm a single dad, and spending quality time with my kids is of PARAMOUNT importance to me, the only real time I have to workout is late at night when they're in bed (9:30PM).
I know that after workout/run protein intake is important to help with the muscle building. What I need to know is:
**Is it OK to do my usual protein shake after a late night workout (usually ends about 11:00 for P90X) and then go to bed? (I am usually in bed by 11:30-11:45)
**If a late night protein shake (first point) is NOT okay, should I do a large protein intake PRE-workout?
Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated!!
