In brief: Within 45 mins
A protein shake is the most beneficial to your muscles for rebuilding and recovery within the first 30-45 mins of you working out.
If you dont have a high protein intake throughout the day a shake can also help make up for that as your body does need it throughout the day as your body uses it for normal function as well as rebuilding your muscles.
