Thread: BCAA's

  1. #1

    BCAA's

    Does anyone use BCAA's? I'm switching over to The Anabolic Diet and it is suggested to use BCAA's during and post workout so I just picked up some Purple Wraath by Controlled Labs...I'll let you guys know what I think...

    I have been using BCAAs pre-cardio in the morning, and sometimes pre workout in the evening. Gotta be honest, I am not sure I can tell a difference at all when I take them.

    I picked them up for post workout since I'm not supposed to have many carbs on The Anabolic Diet and he suggests BCAA's...we'll see what I think in a few weeks///

    like ripitup, i didnt NOTICE much at all from taking them... i think probably because as a bodybuilder our diets are already filled with high quality protein sources and whey protein all of which has high concentrations of the EAA and BCAA. One interesting amino acid that shows some promise is l-leucine.

    I dropped the BCAAs a few weeks ago. I didn't notice much of a difference with them, and I began to start increasing other supplement intake during the final weeks of my contest prep (fiber pills, vitamin C, ZMA, Vitamin B, glutamine pills, etc etc)...it's too many pills so something had to go!

    I never noticed any difference while on BCAA's as well, but like MEAT said, it can't hurt right?
