You workout, you eat properly, but, are you getting the most out of your effort with your supplements? You burn calories, break down the muscle tissue, fuel your workouts, then rebuild your muscles leaner and stronger.
In order to optimize the results of your training, consider supplementing with BCAAs. Taking such supplement will help you maximize the results at the gym and help you recover quicker and better.
1 — What is a BCAA?
BCAAs stands for branched chain amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and, as you may now, protein is what makes up the cell structure and therefore the muscle. There is 3 aminos that are classified as the BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine and valine.
These BCAAs are essential. You need to get these branched-chain amino acids from protein sources such as meat, milk, yogurt, legumes or nuts… or supplements.
2 – Why do you need them?
Getting a sufficient amount of BCAAs will help you reach your goals by ensuring that your muscles can rebuild and repair after a workout. You will be able to build stronger, leaner muscle. You will also realize that when supplementing with BCAAs you won’t be as sore.
3 – When do I consume them?
Technically, you can drink BCAAs at any time. It has the greatest impact on your performance and recovery if you consume them around your workouts. Personally, I drink one scoop of BCAA during my workout.
4 – What kind should I get?
I use the Chain Reaction BCAA’s and have been switching from flavor to flavor.
Don’t hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.
