    Hey guys, I am in the 4th week of my HST training, and everything is going well.
    My question on the nutrition portion of HST is this-since Whey protein is digested to fast, does it make sense to have a shake before bed (with water)? I would think it just goes right through you...
    Also, if you had a day to really load up on the protein should it be the day I worked out ( I work out at about 11[​IMG]0 in the morning MWF) or the day after. When does the "most" muscle growth occur? ( I know both days is preferable, but is there any day that is "better?")
    Thanks for reading.

    Taking some fat and low gi carbs will slow it down some. I guess it would be preferable to use a slower protein (e.g real food) like meat/yogurt/cheese but adding the other macros will work.

    Protein is most effective around the workout so always try to get some there (pre/post) but the 36-48 hours after the workout would be better.
