Protein Shakes immediatly after workout?
Hi, i have a question about the importance of consuming proteins right after weight lifting. I see a lot of guys in my weight gym that pre-ready (is this a word?) a protein shake and consume it in the showers immediately after their workout. I asked a semi-body builder that tried boxing with us for a while what was it all about, and he said that if you don't consume your proteins 30 minutes tops after your exercise than don't bother..something about a time window with the metabolism of your muscles..
I kinda doubt it, though there might be some small truth to the optimum time to take in protein after a work-out.
Can anybody contribute some notion? I know no serious studies been done on the matter.
Thenx in advance.
