I think BCAAs pre-cardio are a horrible idea. If the point of your cardio is to burn calories, then what's the use in slugging down extra calories?
Take your BCAAs for your weight training sessions where they have potential to enhance performance and anabolism
The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

def take bcaa's on cardio days....i sip them while i do cardio, the bcaas would give the same benefits for cardio days as weight days...especially if your doing HIIT cardio the way you should be

Drink some Compete before you run, not a BCAA product, but will have substantial benefits in the stead of a BCAA product.

if you listen to layne norton talk about it on his one podcast....LISS cardio has shown to decrease muscle mass and HIIT could actually increase the mass in your legs.....so it only makes sense to add bcaas or a drink like compete for cardio

I prefer EAA's/BCAA's/Electrolytes pre/intra cardio.

If I am doing long duration cardio, which is only contest prep, I use BCAA's and Compete.

Aminos are 1g of protein per 1g of BCAA (free forms of protein) as stated above the FDA does not count them since they are so small.

Cellucor's offers some extra AA's for workout endurance and although the Leucine content is lower in comparison it has a good amount of HICA in each scoop, which will be great fir maintaining muscle mass.

I've been using BCAA's between meals. Then use HICA with some electrolytes for cardio days. I usually try to bang out 3 to 4 miles and hate doing on empty stomach cause I feel run down when I do.
