BCAA's first thing in the morning

  1. BCAA's first thing in the morning


    Anybody try this... BCAA's first thing in the morning upon waking to stop catabolism because of fasted sleep? Is there any benefit or just a waste?


  2. Ehhhh.....

    I think its more of an individual thing and trying out different setups etc.

    I myself dont take any aminos before bed or when i get up. Now if your going to get up and do morning fasted cardio or training then i would definitely get some aminos in you prior to that.

  5. Agreed with the above. Besides that if I want some amino acids in the morning I will eat some protein.

  7. I train first thing in the morning so I will either chug a scoop of whey protein or drink some aminos when I wake up because I hate eating breakfast before my workout. Then I make a nice big breakfast afterwards!

  8. I would just go with whey.

  9. Like the others have stated, the only time I would feel the need to take BCAA's first thing in the morning would be if I was on LG or IF or about to start some fasted cardio. Otherwise I just eat a meal. I love me some cereal!

    Oh man I agree. Spent most of last year 5AM lifting. Aminos were the only thing I even seemed slightly appealing.
    Even then I'd go EAA over BCAA myself.
    my buddy use to eat like big meals like you stated and I was like....HOW haha

    Yeah man. If I eat anything its got to digest for an hour minimum before I go lift or I'm at a big risk of tossing it

    I'm closer to 2 hours after a meal.

  13. Some diets call for it. I use the current PES BCAA that is in the making between meals

    I also will chug some BCAAs if I am having one of those morning where I have no food and it will be a while before I get to food
