    shake after cardio?

    i just started doing 45minutes of cardio at night, and i'll have a shake afterwards. I was just wondering if it's good to have protein after doing cardio at night or not? it's usually around 10:00pm...thanks

    Yes, you need to feed your body usually within 30 minutes after working out.

    However, with cardio it does not matter if you have a pro/fat or pro/cho meal after. But you need something.

    I lift for 1 - 1.5 hours then go right to cardio for 30 min, then have my shake. I dont know if thats that best way to do it, but it's what I've always done. haha,

    what are your goals and stats? I think that you are over training and risking losing muscle. At least try adding some BCAA's after your workout and before your cardio. And what's in your shake?
