I just started using protein supplements(GytoGainer Rock 56g/Shake).
On the label they suggest that you take three shakes a day.
- One in the morning
- One a couple hours before your workout
- One within 30-45 minutes after.
That seems very reasonable to me.
My training program splits upper and lower in two days and rest day in after that.
Does my body need the three shakes a day during my resting day?
Will my muscels still be recovering the day after enough to need all the extra protein in circulation?
They say that 80% of the protein the muscels need they get it with 2 hours after the work out.
