    You're supposed to take a protein shake after your workout to utilize "the window of opportunity", however, scientific evidence for this is kinda mixed. Although whey is good after your workout since it's absorbed easily, I wouldn't bother with a shake if you eat dinner within in 30-45 mins of your workout. That's what I do at least.

    Some studies indicate this "window of opportunity" can even be extended to 2 hours after the training session.
    However, Alan Aragon found that the pre- and post workout meal ideally shouldn't be separated with more than 4 hours. Lean body mass x 0.4-0.5 grams of protein in both meals for maximum anabolic effect.
    I don't take a post workout shake either.

    Im guessing kg, 1g/lb in a 4 hour window is a lot.

    I do a pre workout shake about an 30-60 min before and eat about 30 mins after.

    That'd be in kg with Aragon's recommendations.

    Also, 5'10 and 230-240 sounds pretty heavy, do you just have everything tailored after you buy it? At 5'9 165 lbs I'm struggling to find shirts and jackets that fit OTR.

    I buy x-large slim shirts. Usually large (relaxed fit) jacket fit well too. It's a hit or miss depending on the brand but I don't care enough anymore to get them tailored and have the ''perfect fit''.

    Anyway, everything you wear looks good when you have those broad shoulders/big back.

    By drop do you mean v-shaped physique? At 5'9 the length of smalls fit me well, but they're way too tight everywhere except for the waist. Maybe I just have short arms, but xl at 5'10 sounds like the length would be ridiculous.

    Are you saying I'm lying?? Just FYI bodies aren't built the same way. Small fits me in length but hardly fits a 39-40" chest, therefore tailoring is required. Not sure what my arm measures but flexed somewhere around 15-16".

    Oh, and also some of this may have been while I weighed 170 lbs, but that hardly makes a lot of difference. Not even sure what my weight is atm, as my weight is out of battery.
