I read an article in this months Muscle Media that talked about studies showing the benefits of having a whey protien shake an hour before workout instead of the traditional after workout shake. So I decided to try it. I've only been on it week and I gained 1.5 lbs. One week isn't that long but that's enough encouragement for me to continue with the experiment. By the way I usually have a post workout shake as well.

Uh, I think you're missing something very obvious here...

That aside, a preworkout shake is a good idea.

I'm kind of dense.... so what am I missing? I was thinking maybe you were thinking that I've added a shake to my already existing diet but I haven't I've just moved them. My caloric intake has not changed.

Oh, and I reread what I wrote and the word "instead" is incorrect, the article never suggested that you not have a post workout shake as well. Sorry.

i seriously doubt that moving a whey shake one hour before your workout has made the difference in adding almost 2 lbs in one week.

not to say you havent gained it, just that i dont think its solely due to the shake.

Maybe MrWebb is right...could be that you have more energy now that you are getting some nutrition before...meh

do you drink water or milk with your pre and/or post workout drinks?
