I'm dr tony. Huge. And this is the round table question. Do you use branch chain amino acids ? Let's hear from our panel of experts ? Not anymore. I did experiment with him, but i get plenty of guys, right ? Yes, i do. I prefer branch chain amino acids, that aaron tablet for capsule form versus the powder form that has artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners. And, um, i prefer this because i think that it's cleaner on the body, andi, i like to take branched chain amino acids on an empty stomach prior to working out prior to sleep. And first thing in the morning on defy train twice a day. That would mean a total of twenty grams of branch chain amino acids today. So there's some science where the answer is occasionally but typically no high quality protein. Whey protein, isolate meet sources. Eggs are all good proteins. They cause they're high and branched chain amino acids so know as a rule i don't the only place that i could find efficacy for such a thing would be circa the workout. And in general isa as a theme. Do not treat that area. I just cover good nutrition. All day long, lots of food, lots of calories, lots of nitrogen from good quality protein and you're covered. Yes, i used five grams for fasted cardio five grams p workout, five grams post workout and then five grams before i go to bed. Definitely have all over clients use amino acids. We tried to get him to use him as much as possible for breakfast before training after training before bed. Currently i am not using it not because i don't want to it's just honestly, i have been instructed by my coach. Now i do find like later on within the season we put it within my regiment and i started doing it before fasted cardio and then later on in the evening after i finished my second workout, which i find honestly really difficult, i guess the best time to do is take. I take it also in a powdered form, because i know everybody has their preference, appeals and powder and what has artificial sweeteners and honestly, i use it because of the only reason, because the artificial sweeteners i know they're bad, but honestly, it goes really good with the slain i take after my workout when i'm eating and it's easier and prada form like i say it because it helps with food go down a treat i do believe in. Do i see honestly the value in him ? I guess we're on those really sore days. Journalist brazil with a body and the most rebuilding yes, and knew it depends on offseason contest prep. Of course, the branch chain amino acids are good before fasted cardio and enter workouts. It really depends on my client's finances. A lot of people can't afford to everything that needs to be done. The sport. So then food's always gonna come first demise and then speaking for myself. I got the two, seventy five without even ever using branch chain amino acids. Francine a meal as this ? Yes, i used them, and i love them. And i have my competitors use, um, because it prevents muscle breakdown and house recovery time frames when they use, um, morning with fasted cardio. And during your workout i use a lot like our least england during workouts before after big relief just along the training, i take city thirty gram ofthe species. Then when i'm i hope you got water. Program thirty grand to be saying so i just keep thinking probably i'm taking like sixty police soaring gers to taking disease during a cut. I don't actually recommend that because people take them pre cardio thinking that they're going to preserve more muslim is by doing so and that's really not the case. So when your fasted, your jewish wass are elevated and you really want to be in that state, especially if you're taking something like a secretive, all empty six, six, seven or some peptides were growth on releasing peppe time or just a judge, regardless. So the point is, when you're taking busy is you're spiking your blood glucose, and you really want to use fats as fuel rather than your body just burning the amina's you just ingested prior to cardio. So in that regard, i don't suggest taking them during a cut if somebody really wants to. I mean, they're fine at any other point during the day, but specifically, picardo, i would not recommend them on. Unfortunately, a lot of people i tend to buy them, especially for that reason. So that's actually country productive in my opinion, if you really want to. Get super shredded and get the most out off every conversation in, so just stick to medium intensity cardio one forty one fifty beats per minute and second with the first it, and avoid taking busiest pch yes, with vodka. Seriously, though, when i drink pc a is that's when i make a mixed drink of vodka on pch and curls tell me it's, one of the best tasting drink saver brad and it's got no sugar, but i do use bc a's with a lot of my meals just over the counter bcs that have flavoring in it. I know we're not supposed to have our special flavoring, but it's better than drinking fruit juice or a soft drink or something, and i don't use a lot. I only use about a half of a scoop of bc a's with each meal because i don't like the idea of taking it by itself and stimulating protein synthesis and an insulin reaction when i don't have the other amino acids with it to back it up, i think it's especially helpful when using a meal that doesn't have a lot of meat that has a lot of vegetable protein that might be a little lower in branch chain amino acids than supplementing with bc a drink. With those meals will help balance those ratios amino acids into the complete profile amino acids that i need to actually build muscle.
