    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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  19. 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.

  21. How's Inner® Armour BCAA Peak blue rasberry for $10.97 for the first tub and $5.48 for the second tub?

  22. I use HumaPro for my EAA and Chain'D Out for my BCAA.

    Every morning I consume 1 scoop of HumaPro, 1 scoop of Chain'D Out and 2 scoops Alphamine..

  23. Thanks, I'll check them out.

  24. What do you look for in a BCAA supplement? what amino acids and what quantity per serving? I notice they tend to be L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-isoleucine. Some include others. Is the quantity user weight dependent?

  25. Most supplement studies are severely flawed. They contain a few hundred participants, are done quickly (less than 2 years) and are thin micro analysis's at best. With that being said, things that have worked for many years in the sport (bcaas) are probably the best.

    No, they actually contain far less than a few hundred participants, which would have been ideal.

    Shoot for about 4-5g leucine in a single bolus.

  28. BCAA consist of Leucine IsoLeucine and Valine. TRhe most important being Leucine. when you see a ratio it is the Leucine first followed by the other two. Such as 3:1:1. If leucine is doseded at 6g then Iso and Valine would be 2g.

    I personally use BCAA different when cutting compared to bulking. With cutting I drink three times a day, when bulking I eat so much I usually take first thing in the am while I get ready and drive to work before I eat my first meal which is as soon as I get there and then intra workout.

    Damn bro you are spending some money on dem der Amino's. HumPro, which I am a huge fan of for cutting is very expensive. However, it provides the equivelent of 24g of protein without the calories. Keeps those muscle fed.

    Amino Acid = Protein
    Protein = Calories
