    Other than - GROSS.

    There is no reason to. If you want to do that, buy some bulk BCAAs. I can't imagine the Xtend flavoring NOT ruining a shake, not to mention slowing down absorption.

    Agreed. Unless you have a fruity flavored protein, this would taste like pure death.

    yeah... dont waste your xtend. enjoy it by sipping it during your workouts and throughout the day. 100X better off buying bulk glutamine and bcaa if you wanna mix it in shakes.

    on a related note guys - I saw on a website selling BCAA stuff that it said not to shake when mixing, but just to "stir vigorously"...

    Any reason for that? I can't imagine why on earth it would matter.... I know there's some peptides and stuff that can be damaged by shaking, but BCAA's?!?!

    during a workout,? no because it will cause blood to goto the stomach to digest and not to the muscles (or as much to the muscleS)

    after a workout? thje waxymaize can shuttle it faster to be easier assimilatred by the body.

    I didn't say anything about intra workout, I quoted the original poster...

    I do agree with the Waximaze suggestion post workout though. To me, the whole point of BCAAs are quick absorption.
