    If your diet is deficient in protein-intake, then you can certainly take them on your off days.

    Considering that this is only adding 1g of leucine to your daily intake, you are experiencing placebo.

    Sorry, but 1g leucine, 500mg isl, and 500mg val causing tremendous gains is placebo. And sorry if this eliminates all further placebo gains for you lol. Just forget we had this conversation

    To answer your question, it doesn't matter because it is doing nothing at that dose. You are quite literally just adding 2g of protein to your daily intake. Once this tub is done, don't buy anymore.

    I only use BCAA (or Leucine) on a cut....caloric deficit, with average protein intake...I just add it into my protein intake, if I take 25G BCAA? I take 175 grams or so of protein for example. And usually only on WO days centered around the WO. But on a lean bulk or bulk? why bother, you are in caloric and protein surplus so it doesn't make sense to me. but I suppose pre and post WO BCAA could be used anytime if you wanted.

    What do you know Mr. Cooper? It's not like you are an experienced supplement user who keeps in great shape. The OP might be more willing to listen to you if you were in medical school and one of the smartest guys on here (or any other forum for that matter)......oh wait, I forgot that people still quote your advice like it's gospel even on forums where you don't actively participate.

    OP, you would be crazy to ignore what Mr. Cooper is saying, not just because he says so but because just about anybody will tell you that you don't need to supplement with BCAA's if you are consuming sufficient protein, especially when your BCAA is under dosed anyway.

    Well sais Dewey..I have to agree.OP,Mr Cooper keeps in fantastic shape and has been supplementing for many years.His yrs of training and hands on expierience means more to me than him having any degree.

    I have been back and forth on a few forums before joining any and seen him..Listen to him,he knows his stuff.

    A few others on here i look to for advice are Airborne,Warbird,Dewey,Mr Cooper and Bolt. There just among the many very educated ppl who hang around here.

    To be honest i joined here,i realized how much i really dont know about supps.Besides the basic whey,creatine,carnitine,taurin e etc.... You wanna learn about supps and benefitting your body from them,this is where to be.

    Dewey will tell you,up to 3 months ago i hated supps,now i am starting to find that many,not all,lol..more often then not there ****,but there are many that can be very useful,the right ones that is.Pick n choose right.

    Sorry for all the yapping,haha

    Ill be quick to admot i have used bcaas plenty of times and never felt any better taking thwm..I eat as good as i can with as much protein as i can intake daily.

    I still to this day wont waste my money on bcaas,but as of late bwen contemplating on maybe making a splash for a 3 good months straight and take it from there.I was never impressed before with them ,but who knows what can happen now.

    I'm a fan of bcaa's for recovery but can't see how 1 gram of bcaa's would illicit any kind of response. If you want to try bcaa's, opt for a much larger dose(and powdered bcaa's, unless you don't mind swallowing a dozen horse pills)

    Dude,the one thing i do is respect everyones opinion.So when u disagree with someone,i apprexiate the person more .Most uaually back down to ppl.

    As for the creatinw thing.I have heard the same.Which makes abs no sense.Being creatine is the only 100% proven aupp to work.Ive seen gains and improvemnt in strength and endurance with really any creatine i used,espexially Creapure creatine

    I think he was alluding to the fact that the particular BCAA brand you were using, or the dosage you were using, was so miniscule that it wouldn't elicit any effect. not that BCAA or Leucine are useless, just that you would need to take more. and take it pre intra and post workout for the best results. And of course as already pointed out, using it on a cut/caloric deficit (esp if your protein is lower than it should be) is probably the best, but not the only, time to take BCAA. Did your BCAA formula really have 1g of BCAA per serving? WTF? for real?

    5-10 grams of Leucine a pop is good....BCAA maybe more depending on the ratio, 8:1:1 or 2:1:1 or anywhere inbetween.

    BCAA's are the bomb, I buy them in bulk and mix them with crystal light and pound them throughout the day on a cut, as well as pre/post workout.
