Can I mix this 2 together and would this be a good mix? yes, I know that Gatorade came out with some protien in it. Just wanna do my own mix with the powder Gatorade and bulk BCAA's if it works good?
Thanks for any input
I tried it, Gatorade did not mask the bitter taste of BCAAs. But you can take them together.
I do this usually for my intra/post workout mix. Sometimes I would addto the mix. I like the Gatorade bottles because their opening is wide enough to put a scoop without spilling powder all over the place.
i do this at the moment and love it, but i do have to add extra crystal light....
1/4-1/2 packet crystal light
sip during training, but it is followed by some good ol peptopro and gatorade as well, i just get the Maximum absorbed protein because its easiest to get as many supps as i can from one place, and they have most my stuff already
Ive been using CM + BCAA's for a while now and it really does make a noticable difference. Cant drink it unflavored but they both taste so bad it cancels out pretty well so i can use like half of what would normally be needed to cover them both up.

I add a scoop of whey, scoop of casein, 1 serving of essentials by AI. There is no bcaa taste at all.
I use Gatorade and BCAAs all the time. I went through almost a gallons worth of Lemon Lime Gatorade + 30g of BCAAs while playing a round of golf yesterday. I even threw in a serving of our old Lemon Flavored Chaos.
I've played 18+ holes with and without the BCAAs + Gatorade. I definitely don't wear nearly as much when I use the BCAAs + Gatorade.

I'm 205 lbs in good shape, how much BCAA's should I take, during,after and maybe even before training?
I take bcaa with Gatorade cuz you need fast carbs to bind with protein to be absorbed by the muscles. Xtend by scivation has cillurate mallate in it.
Some also argue that if you take a whey shake 30 mins before workout, you will have good amount of amino acids in your body during workout.
Some believe they notice the difference of supplementing with BCAAs and swear by it.
It is more of trial and error to find what works for you, if you can afford it and prefer to take it just in case, then take it during workout. 5-10g during workout. Some do mega doses as well of up to 20 to 40g. Not sure the benefit of that if you already take whey prior to workout and after workout.
i've done powdered powerade or gatorade pwo with bcaa's quite often off season
I try to stay away from gatoraid d/t it using high fructose corn syrup as it's sweetner.
the protein gatoraid doesn't use h.f.c.s. but I thought the taste sucked. way too sweet for me and left a sticky feeling in my mouth.
I'd choose vitamin water instead. or mix your bcaa with grapefruit juice. (I prefer simply grapefruit)
