Post workout anabolic window myth

Regardless of marketing claims that immediate nutrient ingestion post-exercise is required to maximize muscle gains, evidence to support such “anabolic window” is far from definitive. In a review of literature, Aragon and Schoenfeld [33] concluded that there is a lack of evidence to support a narrow “anabolic window of opportunity” whereby protein need to be consumed immediately after workout routine to maximize muscular adaptations. More recently, same authors carried out a comprehensive meta-analysis of 23 studies evaluating the effect of protein timing on muscle strength and hypertrophy [50]. They concluded that current evidence does not appear to support the claim that immediate (≤ 1 hour) consumption of protein pre- and/or post-workout significantly enhances strength- or hypertrophic-related adaptations to resistance exercise.
