    Question Bcaa's

    Ok I see relentless articles boasting the benefits of bcaa's and I know that I'm already getting them through my whey and animal-pak supplementation. I'm thinking about adding 5-10 grams of bcaa's in the morning, pre workout, post, and at bed time. This is what i gathered from a recent article on cutandjacked.com. I'm thinking ON's bcaa's since they are affordable.

    So my question is do you supplement additional bcaa's in this fashion? If so what brand and how often? Any response whether you use them or not will be useful.

    I take aminos throughout the day. I have the ON Superior Amino tablets. Ginormous tablets but it helps keep the aminos flowing all day long. Plus its easier to take with you.

    I have Optimum's soft gels and powder. The gels are huge as Deviation had mentioned but more portable. The powder gives twice the amount of aminos per serving and its cheaper but for the love of god please get it in a flavor. I have the unflavored version thinking my Gatorade and Creatine would cover it up...it doesn't. I add the powder to my protein shake in the morning and at bedtime.

    This may be a little late, but lately I have been using Purple Wraath powder as a pre-workout ( I do not like the stimulants in most of the PW supps), it great tasting in the lemonade flavor and also give you a nice pump at the gym with it having beta-alanine. So far i have nothing bad to say about this product, but I also have not tried the others you guys discussed. Just putting in my 2 cents .

    ON's Amino Energy is a good one. Nothing bad to say about it at all.

    I've been taking BCAA's off and on for a few months now, and I love the boost that they give to my workout. But I keep reading mixed information on whether or not you need to cycle off of them, or if you can take them for extended periods. I figure that it's very similar to protein so I don't really see why it would be necessary to cycle.

    What are your thoughts?

    I use the Optimal Nutrition BCAAs in instantized powder form. I will add 3 scoops to 32 oz of water to drink during workout and will often start the day with the same amount.

    They taste good and mix well and helps me drink more water.

    Muscle Martini is my go too. Not only its a bcaa drink but its also has Spectra blend in it! Its like a BCAA superdrink, so far yet to find anything like this product.

    BCAA is basically filtered predigested protein. I don't cycle it. Since they absorb pretty fast, the best time is intra-workout - at least that's what works for me.
