Do we consume post-workout nutrition after weight training/cardio/abs training? Some people confuse how long after a workout should you eat?
Today I am going to cover quick information that when we consume the post-workout drink or meal after the workout? Some people confuse how to use after exercise is over and how much time should be a gap?

The Best Three Ways To Take Post-Workout Nutrition.

If you are only doing weight training today, then after the completion of weight training, you can use post-workout nutrition immediately.
But many people do not have a meal or drink in the gym; then you can take your post-workout meal or drink within a maximum of 15 to 30 minutes. This means that you can consume post-workout nutrition immediately after the completion of weight training or within a maximum of 30 minutes.
If you have done your cardio and weight training today, then after weight training you do not have to consume post-workout meal or drink because after weight training you have to do cardio for 15 to 20 minutes. After finishing the cardio, you will have to consume a post-workout meal or drink.
The other option is if you are training abs along with weight training or train abs along with cardio. If you consume after 15 minutes instead of taking a post-workout meal or drink immediately after train abs, then it will be more beneficial for you.
You can take a protein drink or egg boiled whenever you want, within 15 to 30 minutes of exercise. There is a prime time your body can absorb more protein, and more nutrients so don't miss this time. You can have a post-workout drink or meal within 15 to 30 minutes of finishing weight training, abs training, and cardio.
One hour after this drink or meal you have a proper macro meal which contains carbohydrate, fat, and protein because post-workout meal and drink contain neither carb nor fat, then two macros and lots of vitamins, minerals, and fiber are missing.
So this means that after an hour of post-workout, your next meal will be in which rice, salad, roti, vegetables, chicken, beans, lentils, fish, etc. these meals are essential.
