    intra workout supplements


    I need help finding a intra workout drink. I am using muscle Feast anabolic competition. I like it and it gives me great energy for my workout, but it keeps me in the bathroom for hours after. If anyone knows of a intra the works and is not full of sugar that may be easier on the stomach I would be grateful if you would share some info.

    Thanks for mentioning Compete, guys. It's a great formula with carnitine salts, focus and hydration ingredients, and some really potent stuff for recovery.

    It's a bit different approach to the intra-workout category, but give it a shot and we'll think you'll agree - it's an intra-workout done right. We used whey hydrolysate for a reason - a full spectrum of aminos (rather than just the 3 BCAAs) are shown to have an immediate effect on intramuscular amino acid concentration and a heightened effect on MPS as compared to just BCAAs alone, which are limited to a post workout recovery role according to quite a bit of working circulating in academia out there. Throw in a smaller dose of citrulline malate that meshes well with the Hemavol formula and you've got something that's really coming together..

    Additionally, on a per-serving basis, it's between 30-50% cheaper per serving than competing products. It's something that I'm sure to include in my compensation every month, and my favorite product that we make. Tangy Tangerine and Fruit Punch will knock your socks off.

    I'll drop another plug for Compete; effective, mixes well, tastes great (particularly Tangerine), and with an excellent profile.
    At the very least, try to obtain some samples, it is well worth it.

    When it returns Strive is the top of the line when it comes to this category.

    I do also like Intrabolic, but currently have used Compete quite often when in the need of a product of this type.

    BCAAs intra workout are more than pointless...even pure Leucine intra workout is needless.

    Compete on the other hand...yes please.

    Pre they are magnificent, Leucine in a good high dose some 1-2 hours pre-workout is good. Main reason I like Compete is for the electrolyte complex and the carnitine complex too...

    I see it somehow pointless in the way that they will be burned for energy, and AFAIK I want my glycogen and triglyceride chains to be used for fuel optimally instead of amino acids from the amino acid pool...

    Pre workout, during fasting periods, in lower-ish protein content (late stage cuts) and pre-meal (high leucine) well yeah...I see them as optimal and good IMO. Why do you think I have BCAAs in my cupboard? I do use them brother !

    altho i like carnitine, i can throw "opinions" at you as well, as you espouse of bcaa/function within training
    there is a whole side of the coin, that opines carnitine is overrated & worthless - at ANY time
    science has not definitively proven that carnitine is valuable - or even understands how it works for that matter

    but i won't hit you with that comeback -
    i simply bring this up to point out, you are getting into "opinion" here, not backed by any science

    There is literally not a single study on "intraworkout" supplementation (period)/BCAA use, and for good reason. Taking anything p.o. while exercising will result in a drop in absorption/delivery.

    Conversely, every study of leucine/BCAAs showing positive effects of supplementation involved taking them preworkout for performance enhancement (gluconeo/ketogenesis) or taking them pre/post workout (for a threshold level of plasma concentrations of leucine to be reached (scaled HED: 0.045-0.065g/kg BW Leu)). Taking BCAAs during exercise/over the course of a workout inhibits both such effects.

    Epinephrine acts as a block on insulin release during exercise, and taking highly insulinogenic BCAAs while actually performing exercise defeats the entire purpose of using BCAAs, which are:

    1. To spike protein synthesis via leucine signaling
    2. To improve performance via high ketogenic/gluconeogenic potential of BCAAs
    3. To possibly reduce tryptophan delivery to the brain via the shared aromatic/branched chain amino acid transporter, resulting in decreased fatigue (sufficient plasma levels of BCAAs wouldn't be reached by drinking them throughout the workout)

    highly insulinogenic bcaas

    i still lqtm every time you use that terminology



    let's talk about highly insulinogenic dextrose within a workout..
    or other things for that matter

    you place this concept within a single context, and make no allowance for parameters being used (like length of training, or at what point within the training one is consuming bcaa/other nutrition etc)..

    whatever my friend..i will continue to disagree with your logic here

    but - you make it sound good anyway

    Compete gives me that endurance that allows me to go for long periods of time and the decreased DOMS is just awesome! And best of all, the flavor is unreal good!

    So whats the verdict. BCAA supplementation is useless or useful, and if useful, when? Pre workout, post workout, etc...

    Not going to get a consensus. Too many conflicting opinions and too many variables for just general recommendations. As usual it depends.

    bcaa supplementation can be useful at any time, given the proper context and implementation

    if you are speaking of the pre/intra/post timeframe only, then some generalities can be made:
    bcaa preWO, is most optimal
    bcaa postWO, again nice (altho there are other alternatives that i find more appealing - unless, you are consuming say a bcaa+small amount of dextrose immediately postWO, and then eating a full postWO meal ~30-60min later)
    bcaa intraWO is still viable, despite what you may read otherwise..again, application is primary, and when within the workout you are consuming these will have more to do with effectiveness/efficacy, than simply drinking thruout session)

    context..is..everything

    don't get angry, old man, but i will give my .02 here (not trying to step on coop's answer to you at all)..
    electrolytes combined with proper mineral intake are probably your top items (and most generally overlooked) for true performance enhancement, all things being equal..surely other things can be useful, but this simply has no peer in performance dept
