Default BCAAs post workout - 02-24-2012, 07:37 AM

So I've been taking a BCAA Supp. pre-workout, and the bottle says to take afterwards too. My question is doesn't my protein shake provide enough BCAAs for post workout??? whatcha guys think!?

Yes! All whey protein has it in there naturally since it's a dairy product. BCAA's are unnecessary if your diet is good and taking whey protein. BUT...that said, I do NOT believe it hurts to have extra. And BCAA's are most definitely good to have for cutting when you want to give your muscles more nutrients for building/maintaining muscle without adding calories.

BCAAs are best intra and post workout. The fact that BCAAs are free form amino acids allows them to bypass many of the steps in the digestion process; thereby, BCAAs enter the circulation faster, in turn, leading to a spike in blood levels. It is this spike, particularly in leucine, that contributes to the activation of the mTor pathway.

I do as stated above, take my bcaas intra and when doing fasted cardio if contest prepping. I rarely take them if ever postworkout. My post consists of creatine (Krealklyn) and a form of protein--whether whole food or shake.

I would try Scivation Extend for an intra BCAA. It tastes great and blends well. I have also never had that nasty after taste from drinking it.
