I actually read a response by Hany Rambod in the latest Muscular Devolopment Magazine, and he suggests that Carbs and Bcaas are more important than protien Post Workout... I dont know if it was just marketing for his Evo line, (which consists of Carbs/Gylco/Bcaa Products) but none the less, I would love to get a definite answer to this debate.

BCAAs are protein. And like protein, they can spike both MPS and insulin just fine and don't need additional carbohydrates. The first half of the biphasic postworkout insulin peak (and the only half you should be concerned about, if any) is carbohydrate-independent anyway.

protein without question. it's going to kickstart protein synthesis post-workout and fast acting proteins/amino acids can spike insulin enough for proper nutrient transport.
carbs have their place if your macros allow for it or if you are trying to gain size, but protein above all post-workout, whether it be a shake or a meal

Protein, the necessity of carbs is debatable...but I haven't seen too many people come out and say you don't need protein after weight training. Although the whole magic window thing isn't good.

this is an interesting question, because I train high intensity/lower volume and mostly only have bcaas or protein post workout, with carbs coming in 60-90 minutes postOriginally Posted by alwaysfirst
I think that many of the people advocating simple sugars post workout are assuming the training is a traditional volume type split

Carbs and aminos are best pre w/o versus post, I side with these studies (i know there are studies that disagree)Originally Posted by mr.cooper69
I prefer just protein if I'm on a diet, other wise, dark matter, then protien.
And branched chain aminos aren't protien, they are amino acids, which protien is made up of. I know you know, just don't want to get people confused.

I will not write off leucine as a potentially valuable supplement because it very well may be if used properly, but to date there is still no research comparing BCAA to protein, whole foods or otherwise. The Scivation/Stoppani study was supposed to be the first of its kind, but it was never published.
