Bcaa


#1

Branched chain amino acids. This is my third day working out on empty stomach, except for a serving of caffeine, but the truth is that between i wake up till time i work out there is like 2 hours, which is the time i work in the forums and also get my business going; so i thought : BCAA, as soon as i wake up, i just took it. Anybody else here using BCAA


#2

Its been awhile but i used to keep a large shaker and sip on it thruout the day. Also when running slin and gh i used it more often.


#3

Daily. And why not? 30% of your muscle protein is made up of these essentials and they are sooo cheap.

Everything you ever wanted to know about BCAA’s. Hope you find it helpful-

One take away - You will get the most benefit from taking BCAAs in a fasted state and during training.


#4

What brands do you use @Pastor and you @SemperFi??


#5

@John I use two and get them on Amazon. I am slow but I just figured out how to use the @ tag.


#6

I’ve used bcaa’s for years. I always use them Intra workout!


#7

I have never believed in products like this …a well balance diet should provide you with it, but am spending every days 2 hrs fasting before the work out so thought to give BCAA a shot, right out of walmart, first thing without sodium i found


#8

Why intra workout? I believe that’s what @MBTJR1980 says he does to…


#9

Thanks, I have in the past used the bulksupp one and for no reason never bought any again, but I believe I will add them back in


#10

Thanks pastor.


#11

You are welcome beloved


#12

On a daily basiss. Cardio days I usually take BCAAs during my session. Strength training…right prior and drink some throughout the rest of the day. No training…drink throughout the day


#13

Ok more bcaa questions, how much are you guys taking per day? In my whey protein that I drink 2-3x a day it has bcaas in it, it has 9 essentials and 9 non-essentials, so is that adequate or should I buy more Bcaas themselves??


#14

I take 5g per day regulary and 10g when in a calorie deficit.

I can’t answer your question about your current supplement being adequate because I don’t know the quality or your specific diet.

I am pretty certain I get adequate BCAA’s from my diet alone but I am covering my basis to cover the increased protein synthesis of TRT. When I am in a fasted state I consider them a must. The minimal cost is easily offset by my piece of mind.


#15

I didn’t think so, I believe you are talking an adequate amount of carbs…I don’t think you’re on extreme diet or periods of fasting


#16

Anyways I took 5 grs today but I will do 10 tomorrow


#17

Yes I am in a good amount of carbs, and I’m actually gonna stop them down from about 300 to 200 per day.


#18

Make sure you get on that doesn’t use bird feathers/hair… I like magnum nutraceuticals bcaa product


#19

The supplement is a cheap brand body fortress… my diet is 5 meals, 4000 cals about 300 carbs, and 350 protein. It’s not a super clean diet, but it’s not horrible, chic,beef, fish everyday, fruits veggies, eggs

Seriously? Who the hell uses bird parts?
