    what are good ratios to bodyweight for bcaas/leucine (i've heard we want leucine to be 25% of our daily amino acid pool, is that correct?) and carbs? mainly looking to help recovery/doms as much as humanly possible.

    Well, I am obviously a supporter of the 25% thing; so if you read it here, you won't get me to change my mind (as you may have read in the BCAA Discussion thread).

    In any event; even this thread (like your pre-workout essentials thread before it) has many variables to consider. Post-workout shouldn't end with a post-workout shake either. There's a lot to consider.

    Plus, I remain unconvinced that staving off DOMS at all costs isn't even part of a fundamental issue of cytokine signaling in order to induce repair cascades; so be careful in modulation of this item (it may not be as necessary as supplement ads may get you to believe and possibly problematic).

    so you are not an advocate of liquid mini-meals post workout? (mini being 30g of protein)
    are you an advocate of waiting at least 30-60 mins post workout before eating anything? (i'm leaning towards this method as it will allow me to get home and prepare food)

    i suppose i'm just looking to increase recovery, not necessarily stave off doms, but my body is a genetic wreck, and i am highly inflammed and prone to pain even when not training, just in everyday life. i eat extremely well, but i am allergic to many foods and have some kind of intestinal disease. i just need to make sure that training doesnt put so much of a stress on me that it downgrades my quality of life, and in the past "doms" has done this.

    If you take any "recovery product" with a free-form nature immediately after a workout, it'll be converted to glucose due to PEOC (post exercise oxygen consumption). Therefore... timing it right after is not a scholar idea. (that's my 2% on 15% of your question lol)

    After 45 min into workout I take BCAAs with 30g waxy maize. Then 30 min later post workout shake another 30 of waxy maize n 50g whey isolate. And whatever else you want to throw in there, (vitamins, creatine, ph's, etc etc).
    After 45 min into workout you're pretty depleted... So to spare muscle really I do intraworkout shake.
