    Hey there.. OK this might be a bit of a silly question but oh well…

    Ive always taken my Protein Shakes after training as recommended.

    But now since i train at home is there a better time to take it?

    One of my mates says he sips on his during his workout…..
    Im Just wondering if this would have any real benefit or shall i stick with the ole trusty after training Shake?

    Thanks

    Before, during and after all help with recovery.

    First lot of research used a post shake. Then someone looked at a pre shake and found they were superior. Some people can’t stomach a pre shake and for them post is fine.

    Pre is theoretically superior but may not make a huge practical difference.

    Now you’re training at home you can leap into a ice bath after training as well 😉

    The parasympathetic response stimulates digestion and storing energy.

    However, although the sympathetic response directs blood to muscles and heart I’m not sure that it shuts down digestion. And I’m not sure that training elicits a pure sympathetic response in any case.

    Also with hydrolysed protein there should not be a whole lot of digestion going on any way.

    are u saying the blood leaves the stomach to go to muscles where its needed for that short period, and returns to the stomach after training is over?

    and ur saying this has an affect on digestion during training?

    it will effect digestion a little but the main important things is absorbing the nutrients into the blood which is highly slowed during a workout due to blood being needed for skeletal muscle and away from the important digestive and absorbtion areas (intenstines). You still get a enough nutrients through to your blood though.

    Sympathetic —> Fight or flight response

    Para —> the opposite sorta

    Still I don’t think any of this is much of an issue if we’re taking liquid nutrition.

    Now if there was a smorgasboard in the gym and you helped yourself between sets that might cause problems 😉
