I want to start using, but i'd like to get some feedback on what people think about it. If anyone uses it, i'd like to hear how it works for you.
Love it, staple product at 5g per day. Increases my cardio in both weight training and MMA.
are u suggesting i shouldnt take more than 5 g per day. When do you recommend taking the serving??
do u take your serving in the morning, pre-workout or post workout?
so by drinking the rest throughout your workout do you find that helps you get through ur training? or make it more intense
very true, i will definitely try that then.
I appreciate it.
I will be loading with 9-10 grams than tapering it to 5-6 grams thew out my cycle.
5g is on the high end
Dave Pulumbo says its useless if you eat a high enough content of red meat, regardless, I doubt many of us do eat enough red meat.
3g is what I would go with, thats just me though (both from everything I've read on the science and from experience).
I am a vegetarian any how which I feel a lot better when I stoped eating animals 4 - 5 years ago. So for me it is very critical any how. I am going with 9 because I am not doing it all in 2 dosages etc. I am spreading out 3:3:3 ratio than when I cut it down to 5 I will do 2:2:2:1 ratio.
I just finished with IntraXcell and IntraBolic from Athletic Edge Nutrition and loved the BA effect from those products. It was my first experience with Beta Alanine of any kind, so I cannot comment on a bulk version of the product. I've seen a major increase in endurance and recovery which = more intense workouts!!
absolute staple....ba is amazing stuff..
its a staple for me also... I got hooked on this stuff since Body Octane
I believe it was found to be taken best with carbs, so when loading or even dosing in general I take it with my carbs; usually my post-WO shake and a bit with my carb meals. I do about 4g maintenance and have been on it for a while.
Edit: When I say loading I mean the initial phase when muscular levels of carnitine are starting to rise, you don't need to take massive doses of BA, just take 4-5g for a few weeks and it happens naturally
No need to load it. It works a lot better mixed with creatine. I used a creatine product that has it in it at 1 gram per scoop(half serving), and it works great. No need to use more than 2 grams per day. Anything over that is really a waste.
It's got a higher presence in chicken than red meat. Red meat is creatine.
BA is not useless for grappling. A lot of guys including myself love it for that purpose. Poliquin has his athletes using 10g/day so I would not worry about taking too much. I use 4-6g/day and notice improvement in muscular endurance. I also use citrulline malate and cordygen for mat endurance but if I had to use one thing it would be BA.
