It's very worthwhile. After waking up in the morning, your body hasn't been fed for 6-8 hours. It needs nutrients and the whey protein in the morning for muscle recovery from the previous days of training.
I generally take 2.5 protein shakes a day. One in the morning with breakfast. A half a shake with sugars(fruits/dextrose) 30mins-1hr before a hard workout to give me quick burning fuel during the workout. And a shake with dextrose(sugar to replenish glycogen stores) immediately after training. This nets about 60-65 grams of my daily protein through whey protein shakes. The rest of my protein throughout the day I get from food. I aim to get 100-120 grams of protein a day for my 148lb frame.
