    Core ABC too from CORE

    Top notch products, very cost effective and solid formula's.

    being 2:1:1 is the only researched blend of amino's on the market,
    "2:1:1 is the proven scientific ratio. Higher leucine doesn't mean better results, sometimes it can become refractory."

    A good read:

    So adding extra leucine would actually counter any positive/beneficial effects and potentially cause negative ones? Or would it simply not do anything additional and be a waste?

    At a certain point it won't give additional benefit

    I have a bag of the stuff to use up which I got dirt cheap a while ago, so what's the most effective way to use it? I've been adding a few grams to my PWO. Or am I as well to plant magic beans in my garden haha?

    I would dose the leucine between meals TBH.

    I'd say 5-10g at a time pre w/o and post w/o is beneficial, more than that is probably just going to waste.

  11. Heres a thought....and nobody has mentioned it-

    buy your own bulk Leucine, valine, and iso- and make the blends your self.

    try 2:1:1, then 3:1:1 then 4:1:1 and so on and so fourth- then get freaky with it. If you respond well to 4:1:1 (which I do) try 4:1:2 or 4:2:1- mix and match at your will.

    then when you find your own proprietary blend- just keep making it and that way you have the absolute best blend for you-and its the most cost effective.

  12. Stick to what works. Peptides at 50% bcaa. Or amino patches which I like as well.

  14. I use to use xtend like crazy, but now my go to is NOW BCAA and mixing that with Compete for my intra.
    Now after reading all this, sounds like Lucien the way to go? Buy in bulk and consume between meals? Is there a time before or after meals it should be consumed?

    Yes, leucine is supposedly the way to go Unless of course you have a BCAA deficiency (during a cut, type of diet, etc.).

  16. As I'm sure I recall reading in numerous sources, I'm sure leucine alone isn't as effective as leucine WITH the other aminos. It still needs them to work effectively as I understand it, but leucine is the key one.

  17. I like the flavors of Xtend pretty well if I am going to go the BCAA route. I also use Compete pretty often, while it isn't a BCAA product you should look in to it for your purposes. I also really like Powershock it has BCAA and Nitrates in it. (Get lemon lime if you go powershock though or you will wish you had)

    Add some additional Leucine to whatever you take.

    You're correct although most typical bodybuilding diet will consist of a balance of all 3.

    This is regarding people who have the 40/40/20 macro split or less protein. The protein whores* 50% or more of your caloric intake is protein* will have more leucine and less isoleucine and valine. Especally if primarily meat eaters.

    Correct
    spaced 4-6 hours (meals) with BCAA inbetween 5g Leucine.

    Inner Armour has a pretty good BCAA powder for the price. Taste could be better though...

  21. If you prefer pills checkout CTDLABS BCAA3750. All good products mentioned.

    I would do a bulk leucine with a good amino blend like Core ABC/Cellucor Cor BCAA/SCivation Xtend to bump leucine intake.
