    Can't argue with RecoverPro that stuffs quality and cheap, the Bulk Modern BCAA was sellling 1kg at 29.99 but is sold out atm was a great buy and good quality. I always was an extend user but prefer the 4:1:1 ratio and 8:1:1 ratios better then the 2:1:1.

    how do you dose BCAA's? morning? pre? post?

    I've been doing weights in the evenings (3days) & fasted cardio &/or yoga in the mornings -

    I'm looking for a little assistance cutting & have read that fasted cardio & BCAA's make for a good combo

    I ALWAYS use BCAAs while I'm in the gym. I use them for before and during fasted cardio and before and during lifting. I usually finish up my BCAAs on my ride home from the gym and then I have my protein shake.

    Modern BCAA

    LIKES:

    BCAAs need to be cost effective in my opinion, until there is evidence that more expensive forms are more effective.

    I don't know about in America but in the UK RecoverPro is the most cost effective I am aware of without buying bulk. If you buy it get the lemon flavour.

    A bulk supplier here recently had a 50% off sale so 1kg of BCAAs were being sold for around $15 sterling equivalent.

    I buy in bulk now and throw an effervescent vitamin C tablet in there. It works out cheap and you can change the flavours- perfect.

    I have the same exact opinion. 2:1:1 is the ratio that has evidence of lean body mass gains.. These other blends seem to be just marketing IMO

    I am assuming you are using the BCAA + vit C around a workout.. If so look at this when you get a chance

    Granted it is in vitro and not a large scale study but I figured I would share with you... Just some food for thought

    It seems a bit tenuous to draw any conclusions from. I appreciate posting studies though.

    Yea I agree.. Just thought I would share and let you form your own opinion on it.

    If I remember correctly, I believe there are a couple more on its effects on insulin sensitivity and also endurance adaptations. If I find them I can PM them to you if your interested

    Probably helps in BCAA mixability as well.

    Yep, I forgot the company, but one of the supplement companies uses anjimotoa bcaa in their blend.

    I'm a big fan of buying bulk BCAAs and then a flavored product and mixing the two. That's the best for cost and you can flavor as needed, too (i.e. get it so it's not overly sweet if you want a lot of BCAAs).

    I've used:

    Xtend
    Modern BCAA
    Recover Pro
    Power Shock
    Anabolic Ignite


    So far, Anabolic Ignite was the best intra-workout I've used, but it has a lot more than just BCAAs.

    If you get Recover Pro, just make sure you get the raspberry. Everyone knows lemon is for squares!

    I was actually hoping someone would pick up on the word-play. You did one better and posted a photo lol.

    Yeah, Ignite is solid and so far the Competition has been my favorite intra, but it's much more than just BCAAs.

    Can anyone shine some light if there really are any major differences/benefits from Ajipure BCAAs vs. regular BCAAs? From what I know Ajipure BCAAs are pure grade BCAAs while conventional BCAAs are derived from other sources. But honestly, is there really a differences? A lot of companies have even gone as far as to micronize them so they are dissolved easier. Has anyone had experiences with both and that could honestly tell a difference in terms of recovery, endurance, gains, etc?

    I'm all for paying more for quality, but only if it counts and is actually worth it; otherwise I'm sticking with the bulks.
