How much do protein shakes help you ask?

March 1, 2008

A lot, that’s how much.

yesterday i went without my after workout protein shake, ‘someone’ turned on my blender with a spoon in it, and the glass portion exploded, and the blades were ruined, so i decided not to have one till i got a new blender, because the protein mix i have tastes vile unless you mix it with a bunch of other stuff.

Anyway, i did my normal workout, i thought since it wasn’t a really hard workout (just enough for strength training, only about 20-30 minutes) normally after this I’m never really sore, sometimes if I am really enthusiastic about it i get a little bit sore the day after, but not ever enough to stop me from exercising again the next day. But all those times i had a protein shake right afterwards, this time i didn’t, and man oh man am i sore today, i had a hard time just rolling out off bed, and even typing this is making my forearm and shoulder twinge, theres no way I’m working out today, time to rest.

Moral of the story? drink your protein shakes no matter what, even if you can’t make it taste good, it really makes a difference.
