I was advised by a friend who's been working out for like 9 years to take amino acids to help me with muscle growth.
Would this work while I'm cutting (eating at a calorie deficit of about 1000 calories/day)?
I'm changing my workout routines, doing just enough weight to reach failure at 12 reps/set, I'm trying to get some definition with the calorie def.
What do you guys reckon, is it worth it? I've used whey protein before, and it hasn't helped, it gave me this strange dangling belly, although I was following instructions and taking it with water not milk.
I'm still in a honeymoon phase, I'm acheiving muscle growth while cutting, guess that's because I NEVER worked those muscles before in my life.
