I was going to do this, twice a day:
Is it best to take it before and after work out? Or, first thing in the morning then after work out? Or, a different combo?
I would just take it during the workout.
Which Ivy university do you attend, and are you an undergrad?
IMO sipping throughout the day slowly is the best for body recomposition.
Otherwise I would do 1 serving AM, 1 preWO, and 1 post (Alex Aragon turned me off from during training amino acids as they prevent the initial muscle breakdown that is necessary for starting the process of new muscle growth)
It kinda makes sense to me......I would really like to see some studies on it though.
Regardless of if you find the study it is common sense that the aminos would make tissue breakdown harder, in turn, making muscle gain harder.
i usually take
with 3gr beta alanine during the day (11am-4pm)
and then i do the same during my workout(8-9:30)
bump for more thought on BCAA's during a workout.
So you're saying extend would cause me to gain muscle slower?
**drinking during WO

Can you add some further explanation for Aragon's conclusion on this method?
I am a graduate student. I went to Yale for my undergrad and currently attend Penn.
Did you go to an Ivy school?
As for the comment on how well BCAAs work, I'd love to see a study too. while we are at it, what does it take to become a supplement scientist to create these studies anyway?
Also, thanks for the advice. I think I'll spread out my dosages.
