Default BCAA's

Ok I want to add BCAA's to my list. I take 1 scoop of ON whey pre-workout and 2 scoops of whey and 1 scoop of waxy maize post workout. When and how much should add? Thanks

Should I take this pre-workout or just sip on it throughout my workout?

You probably have plenty of BCAA's in your pre/post workout whey but I'm assuming you're not lifting for hours on end. I also like Purple Wraath during your workout.

If you already are drinking a scoop of whey preworkout, then it's really the same exact thing as taking BCAA's. If anything, I guess you could do one of two things. Either take 2 scoops of whey preworkout case closed, or take one scoop preworkout, then sip on 20 grams BCAA's during your workout.

The POINT is, my friend, that BCAA's ALONE are not a replacement of whey.

There is prob no difference between the scenarios you proposed other than wishful thinking. 20 grams alone, 8 grams with whey, whey alone.....big deal. It's all a bunch of sup witch doctory .

8 grams with whey, if someone wants to combine them should be enough to garner whatever increased blood spike you're gonna get and save your bucks. CUZ sipping on endless amount of BCAA's versus whey is just not going to make a significant difference, IMO. And it's just opinion anyway. I've done this long enough I've failed to notice a difference between one around the workout protocol and another.

People fail to understand the real affects of "fast blood spikes" and so throw away money on aminos. This is the danger of getting your biochemistry info from supplement vendors. You want my real advise, buy more whey to use around you workout that way you have your "bcaa's" and the protein you NEED anyway. It's like arguing over how much Coke to put in your Jack Daniels, or whether Coke is best or a 25 cent cola will do. Either way, you can't really improve on a good shot of whiskey

^^ good analogy eric. Personally I dont use BCAA's around workouts, I use them more to suppliment "protien" when i would rather not have whey. for instance, throwing 10g in water with some crystal light between meals or something.
