Default Muscle Building Window of Opportunity

Ran across a discussion on the window of opportunity that I thought I would post.

Hombre #1:

(Window of Opportunity)...This long standing theory printed in countless bodybuilding publications suggests that the moment your workout ends there is a critical 45 minute "window of opportunity" that opens up. This leaves you exactly 45 minutes to consume a hefty dose of protein to replenish the body with essential amino acids in order to produce any muscle growth from your brutal workout.

From the first time I heard of this theory I was little suspicious. Just the whole notion that the second you complete the last repetition of your workout, your body instantly begins a 45 minute count-down that you have to consume lots of protein before the porthole to muscle growth slams shut. Sort of like how Cinderella had to be home by the exact second the clock stuck midnight, or else her stage coach would turn into a pumpkin, and she would turn back into a wench.
Hombre #2:

I think you've completely ignored the effects that postworkout nutrition has on cellular signalling pathways and there ability to promote anabolism and negate catabolism. Oh and way to mention the increased catabolism in reduced ability to synthesis protein following a workout. If I wan't to make mediocre gains in the gym I'll be sure to follow this advice.
