As you probably have heard, there is a magical “anabolic window” after you workout in which you need to get nutrients to replenish your body after a hard workout. This window of time varies upon who you ask, and some will say that it is a myth altogether. However, for most of us that do grueling workouts, we have learned that it is essential to get your post workout recovery in your system as quickly as possible.
One very simple way to do this, assuming you sport any kind of water bottle with you when you lift, is to carry a small funnel in your gym bag. Check out this funnel from bodybuilding.com. Get a few of them and you can pack your post-workout in these funnel and have it all ready to go. When you are done with your workout, simply fill your water bottle up, slap your funnel on top of your bottle and you can pour out your post-workout directly from the funnel to your water bottle. No more having the countertop looking like you just finished up snorting meth at a drug party, and even better it is super quick, easy and ridiculously cheap! You can have your post workout already down the hatch before you even leave the gym in under a minute. I have been using it for years and never see anyone else doing it. Maybe I am the crazy one, but I can almost guarantee that it is probably the cheapest bodybuilding investment you will ever buy and one that you will use every single day you lift!
