    Depends on your overall protein intake, diet, weight, etc.

    Poliquin recommends .44 g/kg of weight off the top of my head I believe. About 40g for a 200 lb guy, and he says you can take half of that and still see decent results. I find he's pretty spot on with advice. I like to take them DURING the workout as opposed to pre post. I'd say mimimum of 15-20 g, but weight, training volume and other peri-workout nutrition will affect this as well.

    Xtend mixed with bulk BCAAs can yield quite a bit of BCAAs in a single drink without overloading the taste/sweetness.

    I was going to suggest Excell too...Crowler actually cut back some on the flavoring due to the recent trends of upping the doseages of BCAAs.
