    Been off the workoff eagon for a while and it's showing, but starting back this week. Here's my question...

    I'm going to workout before work in th emorning. It's about a 25 moinute drive to the gym. Can I make a proteing shake the night before witrh a whey powder and mixed berries and store it in the fridge and drink before I head out to the gym?

    Any other suggestions for a 45yr old getting back to it?

    I usually make mines (GNC'S Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60) and drink it right before I workout. Or I'll drink half of it before and half of it right after my workout it doesn't take that long to make. I drink it every other day myself. I also make a shake which it fills me up...blended blueberries, strawberries, milk. It's really good.

    I have heard that pure whey is pretty unstable, so probably not a good idea. I tried it with an EAS whey protein and noticed a funky smell. I called the company about it and was told it should be consumed right away.

    There are premixed protein drinks and you can try using one of those - might work for you.

    As long as it's refrigerated for that period, yes. It won't kill you or give you diarrhea, which it would if you left it on the counter at room temperature with milk products in it. The shit that's in in doesn't care. It's all chemicals."Better living through chemistry." That was actually a slogan of a huge chemical company in the USA back in the 60's.

    Then Rachel Carson wrote the book that changed history. Silent Spring. It's why you only have a few robins on your lawn now, instead of the flocks that blotted out the green of the lawn back when I was a kid.

    Eh, I've always been told to drink my protein shake AFTER my workout.

    I think RJ has some articles on it, and you should be able to google a few good websites.

    I just started using the Amplified Wheybolic from GNC (best protein I've found yet)

    They have some mixer cups for less than 10 bucks (they have a spiral wire ball in them) and it takes less than a minute to make a shake. Its cheap, fast, and they clean easy!!

    comparing to all protein drink milk and egg are very rich in protein and also it is very cheap and easy to get.

    Even the best proteins - those that are largely egg alblumin with some whey and zero to less than 2% soy - once they are mixed with any substrate - water, milk, juice, and particularly when high glycmeic foods such as berries or bananas are added - will naturally break down to a sufficient degree that you're not going to get the full benefit if you don't ingest it within 90 to 120 minutes of taking it from a powdered state to a liquid state. Good protein powders are costly, so why flush away half the value?

    But more important is to remember that Protein is to feed and repair, not primarily to "fuel", so taking it within 20 to 30 minutes of completing a workout is the best way to time your intake.

    If you're for something to push ATP into your muscles for extra energy, then look at first to something simple like a mix of orange juice and water that you sip on route to the gym, and use to hydrate throughout the workout - repeat, throughout the workout.

    Once you've readjusted to being back in the gym, and working to failure on all your sets, then consider how creatine intake prior to your workout can help you. But before do that, research it sufficiently to determine the best uptake for your system. (suspensions and effervescents are argued to be the best). There are lots of products, and everybody has a favorite or one they swear by. Research, read, ask, and take everything into consideration including your history of kidney stones or prostate condition, etc. before taking in excess amounts of creatine. Go slow, and cycle it as directed by the manufacturer.

    The most important thing is don't waste your protein drink on pre-workout. Just get up ten minutes sooner, mix it in the a.m. before you leave, and it will be fine for the 90 to 120 minutes between when you make it and when you finish your workout, AND you'll be getting much greater benefit.
