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!

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
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.
Been using this for past few months along side the performance mass. Seen good gains. One scoop before in water (no funny taste) and one scoop after in a mass shake! Been helping boost while training and helping put on the weight!
This stuff is excellent! Im the kinda guy who can't be bothered with loleading phases so this works great. It doea mix well although since its only 5g I rather wash it straight down with a swig of water. feel more pumped than usual (not a great amount though), probably more placebo though. But definitely get more out of my gym sessions and feel less fatigued. All round, good stuff.
Great Intra Carb Drink, Well Worth The Money
