    It will be best utilized on training days.


  3. if you only have a limited supply, training days pre/intra/post workout. if you have the money, every day works better.

  4. i say everyday. cause on off days your still re-cooperating from the previous workout, 48-72 hour window for muscle recovery. i do 15g everyday no matter what. i mix xtend with bulk bcaa in a gallon jug and sip on it throughout the day.

  5. stick to every day because you grow on your days off too bro!
    bCAA are staples so make them work drop all the other fancy expensive stuf u do and stick to food based supps liek protein bcaa carbs that actually are used to build muscle

  6. great advice, thanks gang. my NP bulk BCAAs just got delivered

  7. Bcaa's are not natural btw. They are man made.

  8. id say shoot around 30g a day. ive gotten good results with 10g when i wake up, 10g mid day, 10g night on non workout days and on workout days 10g am, 10g pre/10g post, and 10g at night. BCAAs are one of the things that work real well when u megadose

    It's up to you. BCAAs are a staple, and IMO, should be used every day, and I personally use them every day.

    To clarify
    BCAA'a are natural and found in protein rich food... BCAA powder is man made.

    Cow=natural.....Steak= man made lol

    I use everyday. More on workout days though wake/pre/intra/post/before bed

    Same here. Also, like said above, your muscles are still recovering on "OFF" days, so, why not?
