Advice from Pipes
Thanks for reading. I wanted to get my first post out because it seems everyone else and their dogs have already.
I work at BodyBuilding.com and I respond to a large portion of the customer service emails during the times of 5 am to 1 pm. Though the shift is early, I couldn’t ask for a better job.
It is important to note that I am not a Doctor, Professional Trainer, or Dietician. I am a Customer Service agent that has answered emails for over two years now.
My first tip, Discover Your Protein. Email after email, this seems to be one of the most popular questions.
In my opinion if you are not drinking a protein shake within 45 minutes of your workout, you are basically throwing all the hard work you just put in, away.
It is hard to say exactly what protein will fit your goals, but I have found that as long as you get in at least 25 to 30 grams of protein after the workout, you will provide your muscles in your body the necessary amino acids to repair and rebuild themselves.
What I have found in my own workouts is by drinking a protein shake after my workout it cuts recovery time down, cuts soreness down, and gives the muscles the opportunity to grow instead of waste away.
