Re:does drinking milk post workout have any benefits??
milk is great any time!! I love the stuff!! however it will be difficult to take full advantage of the window you created PWO with milk alone... when I was training in Russia and didn't have the availability to whey at the time due to it's expense and difficulty to acquire... I made incredible gains and was stronger than I had ever been even after having been off gear for more than a year and a half... my diet consisted of lots of potatoes garlic onions some meat... cheese, lots of milk... approx 3 sometimes 4 liters a day and a farmers style soft cheese I would add to my milk to give it the extra protein... which I would eat PWO and usually first thing in the morning when the body can process the most protein.
whey is great... don't get me wrong... fast, easy, efficient!! but I don't like alot of the whey's that are on the market today, they make my system feel ****ty alot of the time!! but I never had a problem with milk, nor milk mixed with a soft cheese... made my drink taste like a yogurt milkshake.... which essentially it was!! however not everyone is blessed with the ability to process milk efficiently, I most fortunately CAN.
