Our expert says:
There's some evidence that protein just after helps with recovery, especially if it's combined with carbs. Late last year, there was some that found that people looking to lose weight should avoid taking protein or carbs within about an hour of training.
Now I'm not sure what your objectives are, or what the intention behind the protein shake is, I assume it's to help with muscle growth. In that case, i guess just after. Before is not really feasible, because protein causes stomach problems in many people. So it's probably after. The real issue is whether you need protein supplementation, or whether a balanced diet might not be sufficient. I'm not convinced that people actually need them.
