Drinking a protein shake after your exercise session enhances the rate at which your muscles recover and consequently you will tone up faster and more effectively. Have you ever heard of the ‘window of opportunity’? This theory has become gold dust in the fitness industry and essentially means that you have a critical 30-40-minute time frame to consume your post workout protein and carbs to replenish the body with essential amino acids, which in turn replenishes your muscles after a brutal workout.
Often women associate protein with bulking, however with the right type of protein women can see amazing benefits alongside their training. The reason why a man is able to bulk at a much faster rate than a woman is because men not only have testosterone but also drink shakes with excess calories and high amounts of protein, carbs and sugars than a woman would ordinarily drink and couple this with a heavy weightlifting routine.
