    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.

    Stick to what works. Peptides at 50% bcaa. Or amino patches which I like as well.
    Ageforce rep, Lets patch up those mistakes and stop going oral.

    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.).

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Well people get caught up in marketing. Oral free form aminos don't absorb very well. Peptides on the other hand do.

    Can someone just clarify the bcaa vs eaa timing and benefit debate? Would it be more beneficial to save my bulk leucine for my cut and just space in between meals or would it help during my current bulk.

    Sorry for all the questions I read different threads/ lane norton but such varying opinions. Thanks guys! I know I'm saving my two tubs of amino Iv for my cut but I am currently taking purple Psyko intra.

    I don't get why leucine wouldn't be used during bulking, in retrospect the same goal is trying to be achieved

    I'd save leucine for your cut and dose it as a bolus preworkout and between meals. EAAs can be used intraworkout during bulking or cutting periods because enhancing exercise performance is valuable at any time, not just when cutting.

    Yes but bulking has MPS being stimulated more often and for longer periods of time

    I would also like to add i dont "bulk" or "cut" anymore. Im just always trying to improve. I yend to stay around 10% bf year around and during beach season ill drop to around 7-8%. Ive gotten as low as 5% doing this bit i went from 3 meals to 2 meals a day. My meals are completely based off of a complete protein (meat and/or eggs) and then a veggie of my choice-usually broccollli, brussell sprouts, asparagus, or somethig of the like

    No problem. The main thing to remember is you need to do your own honework and understand what supps do and why theyre used and then apply that knowledge to ypir own body and experiment to see whats best for you. This can take years of trial and errors so dont get in a rush and dont always follow verbatim what you see on a label or on somebosy elses log or article.

    For best overall BCAA product I go Endurance.

    Formutech Nutritions Endurance is loaded with extras to give you the best product out there. Endurance is packed with a 2:1:1 BCAA, glutamine, beta alanine, Creatinol O Phosphate, and cit mal. I have very few products I use every day for long periods of time. I have been using endurance daily for over a year now and love it. I use it intra workout and usually once at work.
