BCAA before bed?

Page 2 of 3 First 123 Last

  1. i suggest taking bcaa's before bed.. they help the muscles.. i took usp's modern bcaa's before bed and they helped me


  2. BCAA's are great but only provide a short pulse of amino's. Casein or other whole food sources would be much better.

  3. Would it better to take in BCAA's before bed as opposed to a casein based shake?

  4. It would be OPTIMAL to eat whole food before bed instead of a capsulated powder or shake. Word

    Casein, in my opinion.

  9. Here is my logic. On a cut, BCAAs and a chicken breast before bed. On recomp, Casein and/or Whey before bed. On a bulk, homemade mass gainer before bed.

    and cranberry MAP sounds nasty lol

  11. How much BCAA should be taken daily?

  12. I prefer casein in 2% milk pre bed if anything. I usually have my casein shake 2-3 hours pre bed though with a hand full of almonds.

  14. BCAA's aren't a bad idea before bed if you don't have a problem sleeping after consumption. I would stick to a kind low in carbs or carb free though. Carb consumption=insulin spike, and when your body sees the increased insulin it basically tells the body not to make GH. And let's not forget one of the benefits of BCAA consumption: increased GH output. It would be somewhat counter-productive, unless you were getting an outside source of GH, like injections or patches.
    Casein with low carbs and carb free BCAA's would be a decent pre-bed shake.

    I've been following this protocol for months. At first the results were very noticeable!


  16. I am a thallus in a carb rotation and I have a few very low carb days. I already do not eat carbs after 6. And I already do casein before bed. Should I add the BCAA on the low carb days to help produce GH while I sleep?

  18. bcaa's are to aid with nitrogen balance in the body for a constant anabolic state so your not wasting muscle they are great for protein synthesis mainly because of leucine which is a very good amino in my view, but as for bed you sleep for 6 maybe 8 hours or longer so you need a steady stream of amino's in your system this is why whey is no good for night time and bcaa's are not a great choice either because they are absorbed into the muscles fairly quickly i would say an hour give or take, but casein is perfect due to it taking a very long time to fully digest about 8 hours i believe with most products. some blends are better than others and some have more bang for your buck so its up to you hope this helps good luck...

  19. Great information! Is it cool to take casein mixed with whey post workout? I am eating basically every 2 - 3 hours. So would Whey be more productive during the day and post and pre workout? And leave the casein for bed?

  20. yes there are blends like what i mainly take syntha 6 by bsn it has whey and casein and others, to answer your question a faster protein like whey is good for the day breakfast lunch dinner ect. and casein is always for bed or if you cannot eat 6 meals a better protein in my opinon than whey is whey protein hydrolysate it is so broken down that it is basically pre digested so you dont feel full or bloated and its higher grade so no stomach pains

  21. Thanks for the info. You definitely helped me out!

  22. Thanks for the info. Helped a lot!

  23. no prob good luck...

  24. So has anybody started experimenting?
