    Gatorade+BCAA's


    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 add Glutamine to the mix. I like the Gatorade bottles because their opening is wide enough to put a scoop without spilling powder all over the place.

    This may be true. Citrulline malate can be added in a small amount (1g ish) as it neutralizes the taste of BCAAs somewhat in addition to some good potential benefits itself.

    i do this at the moment and love it, but i do have to add extra crystal light....

    32oz gatorade,
    10g IBCAA
    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 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.

    It is debatable. Some argue that if you are already taking enough protein during the day, you will have enough amino acids circulating in your blood.

    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 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)

    Agreed, or LucoZade powder would also be a nice alternative. If I mix this with IBCAA and Beta Alanine, I'm sorted for a workout

    Good points. If i eat within 90 mins of training i will not use BCAA. If i eat 2-3hrs before training, or fasted (for weights) i will have 10g BCAA either right before training or while i train. If i am doing fasted AM cardio for stubborn body fat i don't use BCAA.

    I can't eat within two to three hours before working out or I'll feel like **** pushing about half way through. I basically do the same thing though.

    Id stay away from high fructose corn syrup at all cost unless your a hard gainer and looking to bulk. I use Ibcaa's from Primordial Performance and add various flavors from crystal light. Crystal light even has electrolyte powders. If your looking for a good carb to add bcaa's with, try Pomegranite juice. Antioxidants are underrated.

    I buy bulk iBCAA from Primoridal. I can literally drink it with just water and tolerate it. Not bad at all. I would reccomend looking into that as it doesnt taste too bitter.

    I must be the only person who doesn't think bulk bcaa's is that bad lol. Regardless, I mix mine with sugarless koolaid and splenda, works like a charm.
