Just wanted to know what you guys recommend. If you don't feel like advertising email me a good one.

And I usually run for about 20 minutes after lifting, so is it ok to drink it after running or do you want to do it right after lifting?

Protein shake:
35g dextrose
35g maltodextrin
30g whey protein
2 Tbsp cocoa
some non-nutritive sweetener, if desired
mix with water in a shaker bottle

1st 3 ingredients should be available in a nutrition store, local to you or online. Do a search. One place that is somewhat expensive is proteinfactory.com. If you are too lazy to make this, "Mass Recovery" by ABB is pretty ideal.

Drink it after your cardio. Drinking it beforehand will not replenish muscle glycogen, and defeat some of the purpose of the cardio. Some people also like to seperate the carbs and the protein, drinking some carbs immediately post-workout, then having some protein 15-30 min. later.
