I use whey protein, dextrose and creatine for my post-workout shake. I really hate carrying these powders and preparing it at the gym after workout. They don't really mix very well and leaves behind clumps. Ideally I'd like to use a powered blender, but it will be too late for a post-workout shake by the time I arrive home.
I was wondering if its OK to prepare post-workout protein shake in a powered blender at home, before I leave for the gym, and take it with me. That way I have a perfectly preapared post-workout shake as soon as I'm done with my workout.
I was wondering if anyone does this? How quickly does the protein breakdown if it takes me 2 hours before I get to consume it? I will probably have to leave this shake in my locker, so it will be stored at room temperature (70 F).
I don't know if the sugars in dextrose also contribute to protein breakdown? If it does, will it help if I carry 2 containers - one with protein blended liquid and the other with dextrose & creatine blended liquid? All I have to do is mix these two to make an instant post workout shake.
