View Full Version : Carb or Protein First after Workout?

I know that one wants carbs (maltdex...) to replenish glycogen stores after a workout.
I also hear that one needs protein after a workout to help build new organic material among other things.
Which of these should one take first after a workout- and how much time should elapse before they take that.- When should they take the second?
What do you do?
What works for you?

Both at the same time, right after working out. I just take lots of both pre and post and that way I know I've got enough. The carbs create an insulin boost which shuttles protien to the needed cells faster.
