  1. BEST BCAAS?


    Prob been asked a million times but what are the best bcaa supplements, and do they need to be instantized and does this mean simply quicker digestion?

    so many to choose, whats A good ratio/ the best ratio etc, more leucine the better??

    Looking at-

    USP
    OLIMP BCAA EXPLODE
    OPTIMUM NUTRITION
    A.INNOVATONS RECOVER PRO
    SCI-VATION EXTEND

    To much choice, never used b4 but want to start with them pre-workouts

    Thanks FOR HELP


  2. its impossible to answer: purple wraath, recover pro, n'gage, xtend, intra fuel, bulk modern, all good ones....find one that fits your budget and tastes decent....im currently using body mortar, ergo blitz has a huge sale atm

  3. if you want higher luecine then go with 4:1 or 8:1....recoverpro is 4:1

  4. personally I'm a fan of 2:1:1 but 4:1:1 is fine and even 8:1:1 is ok if you're getting plenty of protein in your diet. Just get something that's cheap and tastes decent like hvactech said. Personally I like Xtend watermelon, dymatize recoup (orange or lemonade) and atomic 7 by universal. All are usually around the same price, use 2:1:1, and have a nice flavor to them

  6. And do they have to be instantized does that just mean faster digestion, is the higher the leucine content the better? (4:1 1 / 8:1 1)

  7. Instantized are more palatable and otherwise it does not matter, IMHO. 8:1:1 supposed to be better.
    Check out my current log: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-reviews-logs/195262-iforce-tropinol-testabolan.html

  8. Ajinomoto BCAA's (aka Ajipure)

  9. 4:1 or 8:1 is the best as far as bcaa ratios is concerned. I have tried elite recoup, amino energy(caffiene) and amino x. amino x is effervesent so watch out when u shake it up.

  10. instantized or not only affects whether some of it is visible in the drink, your body still breaks it down super fast either way.

    So the main things to look at are the taste which is subjective of course (so ask for samples, I can have you sent AI sports samples), and cost per serving. If you want to hit the 5g leucine in a single drink in a small amount of time which gives you higher muscle protein synthesis, the 4:1:1 or 8:1:1 are better than the 2:1:1. I think the recoverpro lemon is one of the best tastes out there vs the pile of different ones I've tried.

    Oh, also it may depend a little on your useage. If I'm not using a preworkout, I like to use VPX Powershock as a pre+intra workout. Its their BCAA nitrate product, as it does also have citrulline + beta alanine in it, and the nitrates give a nice boost without being stimmy.

    So anyone who hasn't already gotten an AI Sports sample pack, just pm me your real name, address and either email or phone, and i'll get it sent out to you. Includes recoverpro plus a bunch of other goodies.

  11. I like recover pro...red raspberry....delicious too

  12. For me i slam some bulk bcaa's before and after workout mixed with orange juice or something else. Then i sip Neogenix Intrafuse through out my workout, the fruit punch flavor is actually pretty darn good. I love it cause it has whey protein hydrolysate and leucine keeps my going through my grueling workouts.

  13. Out of those, I'd go with RP

  14. cant beat xtend. great tasting reasonably priced and best ratio for me anyway

  15. Thanks guys, so is just 1 serving of these products enough pre-workout?

    You'll want to shoot for 10 grams of BCAA imo

    I use them fasted so take that with a grain of salt. I've never been a big believer in aminos if you're eating regularly and drinking shakes. However they help a ton for my fasted morning workouts and long cardio sessions

    Yes, 1 serving will yield results! :-) Most people aim for 2-5 servings per day, however. It depends on caloric intake, body size, etc.

    Purple WRAATH, Xtend, RP... all good products

    As EasyE said, taste is a big factor. I also like the extras that come in PW, like Beta Alanine, Ginger, Norvaline, as well as the EAAs. It definitely gives it an extra kick that comes in handy during W/O!

    you can hit facebook here

    https://www.facebook.com/nutrimindsonline

    they are our european distributor, and ask for samples from them

  20. Thanks fellas, think i will just be using them pre-workouts trying to find a good ratio thats affordable.

    Curious Any1 actually notice any performance benefits from bcaas or is it more like a mental re assurance knowing they do some good but cant notice anything?

  21. What about muscle tech bcaa from Sam's?

  22. i love recover pro lemon and i have a jug of it, but after seeing how Modern BCAA mixes I have to say i see that being my new BCAA of choice.

    Really if you pick from any of the above you can not go wrong good values for the dollar..

  23. I workout fasted, so I take formula-X preworkout and RecoverPro during. It works good for me.

  24. cheers fellas, recover pro looks a popular affordable option

  25. it is great it is just the white fluffy stuff that drives me crazy.. but it is loads better at mixing for me than x-tend (og version) ever was.

    recover pro is hard to mix?, any bcaa supps that are good or easy to mix then or are they all similar?

    a little bit of foaminess right after you shake it that goes down, and some of the leucine may stay floating around. Not a ton of it, but some.

  28. the fluffy puff never go away fully for me. that is using room temp water and leaving it out over night. its not bad but enough to be annoying.. better than the crystals x-tend left behind though. talk about choke city.

  29. wouldnt see that as a prob with any supp as long as it isnt terrible to mix, am sure they would go down the hatch with a couple of swigs

    It's really not I'm just being uber picky. Recover pro is great . And lemon wins until orange creamcicle comes out
