After a workout your body is craving high protein and carbohydrate rich calories! Post-workout is also the best time to take a creatine supplement since absorption is much higher, and your body will utilise a greater percentage of the creatine. The postworkout 30 minute window is a time you can either use to kick-start recovery and muscle building, or miss out on and potentially go catabolic. In other words, your post-workout nutrition and supplement choice is possibly the most important one you make in terms of bodybuilding supplementation. After every workout we recommend you consume a shake that’s:
- High in fast acting protein
- High in carbohydrates
- Low in fat (since fat can slow down digestion).
Great examples of this are CNP Pro-Recover or Boditronics Profusion Reloaded. Stacking this shake with a creatine supplement like Bodybuilding Warehouse Creatine Gluconate can lead to further gains in muscularity and strength. If you're cutting or looking to lose bodyfat, a low carb post-workout shake like Bodybuilding Warehouse Whey IsoClear would also make a great choice as it's extremely fast acting, yet low in carbs and even lower in fat!

Ridiculosly tasty.....hard to believe its good for you
Love CNP pro-recover. Mixes well in water without a blender. Tastes great. No chemical taste or lumps protein.Great value for money and a must have for after training
Amazingly, Ridiculously Tasty! ? the milk chocolate is horrible.. and i did buy 2 x 4kg... harrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggg. price is good. and ingredients but not the taste... BBWarehouse: Sorry to hear you aren't a fan of the chocolate Ricardo. We use real cocoa powder in the flavouring and welcome feedback as we are always trying to improve where possible :)
First of all, this stuff tastes amazing! I got the strawberry 4kg and I will definitely be buying again. Everything I need in a shake is here and anything I want to add, is possible due to it having great mixability. I use this mainly for my mornings as it is so light and easy to drink.
Basically what you get when you mix this is a shaker full of froth with a tiny bit of foul tasting liquid in the bottom, i brought the unflavoured version and i can tell you now it was rotten! i had two shakes and just could not stomach anymore so its gone straight in the bin i would advise anyone looking to try this to just sacrifice the few extra grams of protein you get per serving and stick to good ol' whey. BBWarehouse: Isolate's do tend to be quite frothy and this is the nature of the product. The unflavoured version is certainly an acquired taste and we are looking at getting some flavoured varieties on site :)
