Today’s nutrition tip comes from Dave Barr:
Wake ‘n’ Shake
One of the most pervasive myths in bodybuilding today is the existence of a 1-hour post workout window following our workout. In fact, for the stimulation of protein synthesis, this window lasts at least 24 hours! In keeping with this, a morning shake ? with a similar nutrient composition as our pre/post workout drink ? will have the same effect on protein synthesis! Happy growing.
Hmm. interesting T-Nation. Why though? Well, Surge, one of T-Nations own products tells us “If your goal is to gain muscle, one to two hours after consuming the drink, eat a meal consisting of 67% carbohydrates and 33% proteins.” it pretty thoroughly contradicts this new piece of info. well which is it boys?
