So Im just getting into the whole working out thing and I really want to build muscle with he help of whey protein. Im not looking to over do it, so when is the best time to drink whey before or after a workout?
No doubt protein is key after working out to help recovery and mass building. The best way to take protein, is up to 20 g within 30 minutes of the workout, then another 20 g two hours later. Human studies have shown this to be optimal for the body as anything above 20 g is just passed through as waste since the body cannot process more, hence waiting 2 hours for the next serving.
