So does it help with recovery quite a bit? My work load will be going back up a lot when thi injury is gone, so I want something perect for that, and by the sounds of it you guys really think it's worth it! I've been very skeptical about them, but think I'll give them a try this time around! My only issue with them is you do have to use quite a lot so you get through it quite quickly.

So overall, you guys say yes!

What exactly are the scientific benefits of it? What are the claims?

I think i'll give it a try!! Thanks guys!!

I personally like to take BCAAs intra at times when I am feeling spent. I think it helps with recovery and I use Endurance from Formutech so I get the BA kick as well.

One thing that might help is not going low carb playing sports along with weight training

People did shit like this before BCAA's and protein shakes. His secret was the ability to eat ten whole chickens in a single meal (granted they were about half the size of what we have today)

This is from a legit Source... On different ways to take BCAA's

Quote:
Use will depend on budget. Here is what I would do with Aminos based on different budgets.

When I say before meals I mean at least 10-15 minutes before on as empty a stomach as possible. They do their signaling when not competing with other complete proteins.

Big budget 10 grams EEA's 10 grams BCAA"s 10 grams glutamine before at least 3 meals a day. On a training day, 10 gram glutamine and 10 grams EAA's right before the workout, 30 grams BCAA's during workout

Less Budget 5 grams EEA's 5 grams BCAA"s 5 grams glutamine before at least 3 meals a day. On a training day 5 grams glutamine and 5 grams EAA's right before the workout, 30 grams BCAA's during workout

Less budget 5-10 grams BCAA's before at least 3 meals a day and 30 grams BCAA's during workout

Less budget and the cheapest way to use them and still have tangible results is 30 grams BCAA's during the workout.

As far as what kind of protein to use, use what you can tolerate. As you know I think whey sucks. Most people can handle the Team Skip blend which is 33 whey isolate, 33 egg, 33 casein. Don't add BCAA's, EAA's or Glute to this.

You DON'T want to mix your BCAA's or glutamine with anything as it reduces or stops the signaling effects they provide.

Eric Serrano says his lab research shows 10 grams of EAA's to be the anabolic equivalent of 40+ grams of protein. I believe him based on results. Sucks they are the most expensive.

The BCAA's should be the 4.1.1 mix which is nice as it s the cheaper of the two generally used mixes.

OOPS, I forgot to add that 3 grams of taurine with any of these is a great idea.

That is very true, and I've been just using protein and my diet to keep energy high, and it's working. Recovery has been good but I haven't been training to my normal amount based on injury, I've enjoyed this diet and had more strength and energy than before, so I'm happy with that!

The purpose of this thread was for me to gather information based on experiences instead of just articles, I wanted personal opinions on if they work because I'm not a fan of science based training and studies studies.

I feel much better on low carb and doing so much... Go figure. Not everybody is the same.

Thanks!! So you don't use them daily? Only as and when you need them? And you're still seeing benefits? I'm intrigued!


Make each day your masterpiece

I apologize if i cam off as a jerk. Wasn't being rude jumpy just something I noticed. I did the high fat thing as well. Lost 30lbs with keto while on my diet. Even though my overall energy and mood was great throughout the day it really affecting my training intensity and yes even when I was in a surplus of calories after I reached my goal weight.

One thing that has helped with eating carbs and staying energized is timing them around my workout and only having them on training days. Basically what john meadows does.

But to answer your thread yes I do feel they help I mix them in with 32oz of coconut juice and another 32oz of water and drink throughout my workout. Hope this helps man

Not at all man! Apologies if it came off that I was offended.

This whole Modified Paleo and Keto style diet seems to be working for me for the most part, losing weight slowly but that's how I wanted it. Taking a lot of willpower and patience which is something I don't have with weight considering past eating disorders.

I haven't had any issue with the stength thing, in fact I am stronger than ever and appear to be getting bigger but losing fat? Whatever is happening with it I'm going to keep it up cause it's working lol.

I use carbs around my workout, but not all the time. Normally only around one of my workouts, I'm using fats as my workout fuel for the most part and it's working. Only having like 15g carbs before workouts at most.

I think I'll give them a go, it's just a case of finding a not too expensive BCAA powder in the UK! Not an easy task!
