I'm a regular gym-goer and I've been hearing a lot about protein shakes lately. I'm wondering whether there are any actual benefits to drinking them before or after a workout. I know that protein is important for muscle growth but how does timing affect its effectiveness?
I usually have a light snack before my workout and a meal afterwards but I'm wondering if incorporating protein shakes into my routine would improve my results. Any advice, recommendations or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
