When it comes to protein timing, there are no hard and fast rules. We recommend consuming GetPRO after exercise to help with maintenance and growth of muscle mass. However, research shows that consuming protein in the 24hrs after your session will support maintenance and growth of muscle mass – so don’t worry if it’s not directly after. Luckily, GetPRO offer a range of tasty and convenient high protein products for any time of the day.

There is no need for protein before exercise. Eat something so you don't feel hungry, but not too much so you don't feel heavy. We suggest you wait at least an hour after your last meal before you start your training session.
