The Bcaa's definitely have always given me a little extra to run on during training. I like taking them right before hitting the weights because it keeps me feeling pretty good for about 45-60 minutes after taking them. I noticed today since I was coming off of my carb load from yesterday that they helped regulate my blood sugar level which was a little low before going into the session.Muscle Recovery
Well I had a pretty rough ME lower day on Friday, and when I went to train today I wasn't really feeling any DOMS other than a little in my hips. Usually my hamstrings are pretty sore after a squat workout but I didn't really notice it today. I will be really happy if my upper body isn't sore tomorrow because I tried a bunch on new stuff today because we just got a fat bar into the gym.CNS Recovery
Basically I test this with my grip strength. I use a captain of crush gripper after my training and see if I am able to close it with both hands. If so then I know my CNS is recovering well but if I can't I know its time to back off a bit or promote CNS recovery in other means. I was able to close the gripper fairly easy today with both hands, but on Friday I was only able to close it with my left hand completely. If I can consistently close the gripper throughout the whole log, then this supplement will be a winner in my book.
