I think BCAA's are prob. one of the best suppliment investments you can make. They help spare muscle when cutting, and help build it when bulking. They also help cut recovery time down significantly.
right now I'm using scivation Xtend, it seems exspensive, but the can has lasted me two months already, and I should be able to get another out of it.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
