The Anabolic Window myth
Are you one those bros dumping your weights and heading straight to the fountain to make sure you get your protein in within 12 seconds of finishing your last set so you don’t miss that fatally important anabolic window?! Well I’ve got some bad news for you...you need to relax, the 30-120minute Anabolic Window is a myth. First up studies have shown that those who consumed a good chunk of their protein in the “anabolic window” had little to no difference when compared to another group who consumed the same amount of protein evenly across the entire day.
Secondly it has been shown that the anabolic window was more likely to exist for as long as 4-6 hours from finishing your workout. So chill you’ve got time to stretch and cool down after training you don’t need to skip it...again.
