Protein Shake On Off Days?



Please, help me. I'd like to place a big Biotest order!

Should I order enough protein (Metabolic Drive)for a serving everyday on off days as well as workout days?

Also Creatine is meant to be taken everyday, correct?



Your protein intake should always be be between 1-2 grams per lb. Protein shakes are just a convenient way to ensure you get enough protein in addition to whole foods like chicken breast, fish, etc.

Short answer is if you need a quick shot of protein, Metabolic Drive works on ANY day. :slightly_smiling:

Creatine, the wiser please correct me if I'm wrong, should be taken every day. I believe it's at least 5 grams a day on non-workout days for maintenance?
