Whey protein after lifting or cardio?
 
If I do cardio should I be taking whey protein after lifting and before cardio? Or after cardio?

What about BCAAs?

BCAA's either before and or through out work out and if your working out and finishing up with cardio then consume protein after your totally done.

I agree. BCAA or plain Amino's 5g (eather one) after work out but before cardio then shake post cardio. The Amino's will prevent muscle cannibalizing during cardio. Then post cardio your body is starving and your shake will be used for muscle health and won't be stored as fat.
If you take shake before cardio you will burn it as energy/fuel for your cardio.

I'm anal. I drink (very watered down) whey and take BCAAs during a workout.

You do cardio right after your workout?

I personally say drink your shake before or as you start your cardio immediately after your weight work is done.
