    Best Pre Cardio BCAA dosage


    Anybody have any suggestions on best pre-cardio dosage of a BCAA stack ( BCAA and Glutamine on empty stomach ) which would assist in muscles preservation without restricting lipolysis due to insulin elevation . References would be great .

    Thanks

    When dieting hard, I use:

    10 grams bcaas + 5 grams Poseidon Complex + 3 grams glutamine + 100 mgs caffeine + 10 oz water on an empty stomach first thing before my morning HITT cardio session.

    I've had great results loosing those last few pounds of body fat around my mid section, while maintaining lean muscle, using this protocol. I will usually use it 3-4 times per week for 2-3 week periods.

    Hope this helps...

    I've been including ON whey in my morning shake (otherwise its pretty similar minus the caffeine) are you recomending I leave it out On HIIT mornings?

    No...not at all. It may make a good addition. I personally prefer to only have free form amino's prior to my HITT cardio due to the quick absorption and easy utilization...but that's just me. Many do consume a whey protein shake prior to cardio...I usually do if I'm not doing HITT

    i've been using our BCAA Boost for morning cardio, granted i am pretty partial to the stuff considering i designed it, lol, but it is pretty simple, 10g of bcaa's per serving and a few other crucial aminos and caffeine to get me amped for my dreaded cardio session, which lately has been more of a fast walk...

    Try throwing Poseidon into that mix and you would have one kick a** pre-cardio drink...one that just might change your fast walk into a HITT session

    Congrats on formulating what looks like a great product

    Thanks for all the feedback . Anyone have any references on
    levels of gram dosages of glutamine , leucine or bcaa's that might have a negative effect on lipolysis because of insulin elevation ?

    That product looks great, I can't believe I've never heard of it before. I'll have to give it a shot once my Xtend runs out. What is the BB and CSM in front of the 2 flavor choices? And if you could give a little description on the flavors that would be great too.

    I usually make a drink with 15g BCAA and 20g WPI. I drink half before and half during.

    i think that is a pretty individual question, i would think it would greatly vary from person to person.

    sorry about that, actually it is for us in the back end of the site... as you add more products and options (and not to mention the custom part of the site) the flavors can get confusing for us. actually the CSM stands for Cell Swell Matrix, which is BodyFx's custom product he made for his clients Welcome! PrrsTraining.com, they use the same flavor system and the BB stands for BCAA Boost.

    we are just finishing our community resource center for our site which should be done soon, with articles, a greatly expanded on going faq search, etc. it seems we always get so many questions, like 200-300 per day that are valid questions but are consistantly asked, so this should resolve a lot of that.

    thanks,
    doug
