RE: Protein shake consumption time
I was talking to a guy the other day and he was saying because I mix my shake a couple of hours before i drink it when i'm at work that it has no effect on me. I thought he was consfusing it with a PWO shake as i believe you are meant to take it within an hour after a workout. However he said the amino acids break down after about 5 minutes and it has no effect. Is there any truth in this? I mean surely you are still getting all the calories and protein still in the shake. What would you be missing out on if the acids do break down?
it will break down when you mix it aye, but nort in 5mins matey. keep them in the fridge when you mix them though or better still mix and then use them. the idea that they would have 'no effect' is a serious case of boolocks
