    no doubt.

    Endurance by Formutech has a great profile with COP, BCAAs, and Beta Alanine, but unfortunately, it doesn't have the 4:1:1 or 8:1:1 ratio you're looking for. However, you could add bulk leucine powder to the mix to increase the ratio of leucine.

    Will look into this!

    Power Shock. If you want a straight up quality BCAA product that mixes well and tastes really refreshing, Modern BCAA is great. Both are extremely cost effective.

    If your looking for a leucine loaded bcaa product, inner armours has over 6g of leucine per scoop. Tastes pretty good too

    I've been a loyal powershock user on and off (won't go too long with nitrates) and am trying Gaspari's now. Just found out about Formutech's endurance and ordered it asap. I typically mix my own powders and I may not even have to modify Endurance.. excited to see the effects of COP.

    Going with either Modern BCAA, Blox,or Purple Wraath. All are solid choices. Modern BCAA is just ultra micronized. Blox is expensive, but once it kicks in its amazing, takes about 3-5 days. Finally purple Wraath is great because it has EAAs to and a few extra ingredients that make it suitable for a stim free preworkout. It gives great energy and gives a really cool boost if you mix it together with your pre and just chug it all down at once as opposed to taking pre then sipping it intra

    Another vote for Modern BCAA. 8:1:1 ratio. Good flavours.

    Agree. In terms of value-for-money, Bulk ModernBCAA is in a league of its own.

    why settle for BCAA's when you can have an intra that has both BCAAs, EAAs, and huge doses of LCLT, LCF, a mental edge complex(stim free), and electrolytes?

    Oh and it tastes like candy. Seems win win to me.

    SAA ftw!!! Wish they were a little cheaper though. Are there any other SAAs besides Blox?

    The formulators put basically exactly how many SAA as thought to be needed for the best results and no more, this was in an effort to keep costs down. The BCAA's are there in a higher concentration to add more anabolism and protein synthesis. So you get the benefits touted for SAA with the lower cost benefit of the BCAA.

    Tried Recoverpro today. It never really mixed in. Even shook the crap out of it and let it sit for over an hour. But it tasted ok as is.

    Would love to find a decent priced bulk EAA product.

    I'd generally go for leucine-rich BCAA mixtures. Avoid SAAs if possible due to cost and no evidence save for one very flawed study.

    From personal experience I can say Blox (SAAs) was awesome! I don't give a crap about medical studies, I only go by experience and reviews from other people. I do what works for me and SAAs definitely better! At least for muscle endurance and lack of fatigue.

    If you read what the guy above me said, the study about SAAs is flawed. I can say that I agree with him and I know that many medical studies are flawed. You go by what works for you and what other people who have experience with a product say! SAAs will not turn you into superman like the study basically suggests, buy they will make your workouts a hell of a lot better

    SAAs are likely making you more energetic because they can be directly metabolized for energy via gluconeogenesis. However, I won't rule out that there may be something at play when taking some amino acids in a specific ratio, though again, it is unlikely.

    Well I mean, with all the flawed studies out there you can't really trust them! All you can do basically when looking for supplements is look at the ingredients, read reviews, talk to other people that take or have taken certain supplements, or if you're daring, try new products when they come out and hope for the best! If they work, great, if they don't they don't, stop using them and let people know they don't work!

    Well, I mean people seem to like modern BCAA and it is an 8:1:1 ratio as opposed to others that are 2:1:1 or 4:1:1, so it's possible that ratio may have something to do with it. You never know. But you're right it is unlikely considering it is Leucine that has the most effect and obviously modern BCAA would have more leucine than others with that ratio. So it is more the amount of one amino as opposed to the ratio itself . So basically, I think SAAs definitely have some beneficial effect that many other products don't have, but that rratio thing is BS

    BCAA's like recoverpro that don't mix very well, I mix up in warm water and then let it sit for a bit. It will usually mix in then. Kinda a pain if you're in a hurry though. My favorite is probably Axis Labs N'Gage because it mixes instantly with no problems and tastes great.

    Yeah the high leucine content of RecoverPro makes for a bunch of luecine floaties but it mixes pretty good for not being instantized. If you put it in cold water in a shaker and shake it up then wait 5 minutes or so and shake it again it normally gets rid of them.
