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

    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.

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

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