    I have no explanation what happened to you. I can only vouch for myself in saying bcaa's have helped me dramatically.
    Strange, I know. Perhaps I hit the plateau. However, would it be ok to take bcaa on top of whatever amount there's in protein shakes or would it be an overkill?

    Maybe it coincidental and I just hit the plateau, don't know. Anyway, is it ok to add some bcaa's on top of whatever one can get from protein shakes or would it be an overkill John? How do you dose yours and when do you take it?

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    So studies shown that leucine in 10g dose preworkout had significant benefits with workout intensity/energy and recovery. Most bcaa supps has the 3 main aminos combined with typical total ranges in 7 to 10 grams. I believe 20 grams total per day is the beginning of the optimal doses. That's including the bcaas in most common whey shakes. So in easy terms 2 to 3 servings from a combo bcaa supp. I take for example 2 servings of xtend in a gallon jug refrigerated an use it o pour into my cups or smaller bottles and sip throughout day with intentions to drink one gallon of bcaa mix. In addition I take one other straight serving one hour pre workout for the added benefits of citrilline. 2 grams arginine and my stim preworkout supp has some beta alinine. This is a staple for my regiment and It never seems to fail. Diet and plenty hydration is also just as important for pumps and vascularity. Sorry off topic just throwing some personal recommendations out there.

    I would separate them from whole foods and shakes

    I dose mine one scoop open awaking , in between meals -esp when Im cutting hard , on anabolics I use them more bc protein synthesis is much higher due to nitrogen retenion, pre intra and post workouts all the time, and if I get up at night two scoops
