    drink protein during a workout ?

    In the past I've had my 40grams of whey protein after my workout (the typical powdered shake). However, after a year I grew tired of the crap taste and when I began to feel sick just at the thought of drinking a protein shake after my workout I decided it was time to change...

    So now I buy the "Worldwide - Extreme Protein" bottles, they're just like a lemonade and go down really well, and I sip a bottle during my workout. Towards the end of my gym session I notice a slight burst in energy and I've enjoyed doing a last set with a heavier weight than the first set (rather than pyramid style... start heavy and decrease in weight as the muscles grow tired).

    Now the question is: should I still drink another 40grams of protein after my workout or is it enough that I drink 40g during my workout?

    (I drink 40g at breakfast, 40g during the workout, 40g after dinner. I weigh 175LBs ~ 12%BF)

    yeah, what type of carbs are in it? you might be getting that extra boost of energy near the end of your workout becuase of an insulin spike from the drink...

    Unless you are working out for an extended period of time I think you would be better served with a preworkout shake and then a postworkout shake.

    preworkout- ~25-35g of maltodextrin (ideally) or dextrose and ~10-15g of whey in a small amount of water about 30 minutes before training

    postworkout- ~50g of dextrose/maltodextrin and ~25g of whey
