Sir i bought this protein but how to use before workout or after workout?

Protein powder: pre- vs. post-workout is controversial. Many believe that post-work out is best because it restores what has been burnt up in the workout. Some say pre-workout to give you energy for a better workout. IMO, post-workout is best and you can add a pre-workout shake but it would need to be an hour or two prior. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Be careful: You may well be comparing yourself with people who are using steroids. But the fact remains that you probably look (and feel) quite different from what would be the case if you had not been working out.

What does creatine do?Shud i take it b4 or after my workout.I've also tried some supplements lyk mass gainers and whey proteins.Which shud i take when
