Oral Leucine is sufficient to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, while I'm pretty confident HMB has very low bioavailability, making the effective doses too expensive for practicality.
have 5g of leu with each of your meals and you're set.

it would be better to have 5-10g leucine 10-15min prior to a meal.
and as far as the topic goes, IMO it's best to have both. 5g of leucine with 15g of EAAs +3g HMB and some fast carbs pre and during workout.
HMB worked nicely for me, while I was dieting

The latest study published on HMB did not really show the sort of favorable results that would have indicated it as a good choice for supplementation.
On a calorie defecit there was more muscle lost than fat, and on a caloric surplus more fat gained than muscle.
Stick with leucine especially when you can buy large bulk tubs of leucine at a great price such as SNS Leucine

each container runs about 30 bucks for 50 scoops. Personally I would run 3 scoops per day on workout days and 1 scoop on off days (assuming I wouldn't skip the dose entirely) not the cheapest price per serving but still cheaper than buying the 3 separate
