Say I worked out my abs during a workout, is it okay to eat or take a protein shake right after... or should I wait?


What do you guys normally do? This thought just came to me while thinking about what I was gonna do at the gym tomorrow.

Thanks :-)

If you are training other bodyparts along with your abs, then I would take in a protein shake along with some carbs immediately post workout.

There is nothing wrong with eating/drinking something immediately after working your abs.

If you work abs correctly, they are like any other muscle, and need to be hit heavy and hard, fed and rested to make them grow. Have a protein shake afterwards.
