    I use gold standard whey that has bcaa in it, is that enough or should I get bcaa powder and take it before workouts. Oh and my diet is good I've done research and am only eating wholesome food.

    Shoot for 1g of protein per pound you weigh.

    Supplement with BCAA's pre/intra workout on an empty stomach. Use the whey protein post workout and other times of the day to supplement your protein needs.


    Nutraplanet sells Bulk Modern BCAA from USP. I highly recommend it for it's solid Leucine amino ratio.

    Agree: BCAA + EAA.

    Adaptogens - research.

    Have you looked into Compete yet?

    It provides a full spectrum of amino acids, along with the recovery powerhouse L-Carnitine L-Tartrate.

    Users consistently tell us that their recovery time is reduced, as is their rest time between sets.

    Thanks for the helps guys, I'm going to take bcaa and a scoop of whey before and after work outs for awhile and hopefully it will make a difference. Someone told me to take two scoops of whey pwo, is that too much if I eat like 30 min after my shake?

    Depends on how many grams of protein you're looking to get a day.

    I weigh 165 gaining about half a pound from my lean bulk every week. I was also wondering if I should only count the protein from the major food sources like meat and dairy or should I count everything like bread, brown rice, ext.

    SAA's anyone? FinaFlex silk amino acids are great for recovery and intraworkout performance, keeping you in an anabolic state for longer than normal. Protein supplementation is also key for growth and recovery. Like it was said above, check out NP for some great deals on protein and amino acids.

    How many shakes you drink per day is dependent on your diet. It's not difficult to get 165g/protein per day from real food, but if you prefer the simplicity of protein shakes (like I do), then just factor them into your macros.

    Yes, count protein consumed from all sources, not just meat.

    Yep count your macros from all sources. You'd be surprise by how the grams just at up.

    I only count protein consumed from protein foods (meat, nuts, dairy, powders, etc). This ensures I go above and beyond my protein goal for the day, rather than just being in the neighborhood, and any protein I get from carbohydrate foods is a bonus. Fewer foods to keep track of and my overall food intake is higher.

    The only thing you shouldn't count in a food log is fibrous carbs as they are indigestible. Not counting proteins shakes and what not seems irresponsible when you are already logging so much other foo sources. Oh well. To each their own

    iForce Compete helps with my endurance and recovery. It all depends on the workout, sometimes no product can help, but for the most part Compete does the job.

    Great recovery from Compete for me, and for most other loggers. Really has been saving my ass between a physically demanding lifestyle and Doggcrapp workouts.

    This is actually interesting to me, I didn't really notice it. But I just recently stopped IF for a convenience reason because of a change in my schedule and I have actually noticed that my DOMS in my legs do last about a day or two longer than they previously did. I didn't make the connection until now.
