We’re a BCAA friendly site. After all, I’ve mentioned before, how helpful I feel BCAA’s are for muscle gain and fat loss. If you train hard consistently then you know you are walking a fine line between recovery and over training
Research published in this month’s Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research shows that taking Glutamine and BCAA can reduce the catabolic state caused by heavy resistance exercise. Men who were strength training were either giving BCAA’s or a placebo. They consumed the supplements for 4 weeks while performing high intensity training.
They consumed 6 grams of BCAA’s. At the conclusion, the BCAA group had decreased levels of cortisol, higher testosterone and lower markers of muscle damage then the group that did not. Very powerful evidence
