    Best time to take your amino acid supplements?

    I'm starting out a new work out routine thats going to be different from any one ive tried before. I have all my supplements I want to use in this month but I have one question.

    When is the best time to take your amino acid supplements to get the optimum use out of them?

    I use to take a dose when i woke up at lunch and in the evening but is there a better way to schedual taking them that works more effectively?

    Depends,

    if you do fasted cardio in the mornings use it,

    Pre/Post workout or intra workout depending on what you eat around your workouts.

    Also between meals as Layne Norton Suggets with a carb source to help protein synthesis and eating less meals.

    For Breakfast i usually eat a light breakfast to get my day goin and my lunch is mild and my dinner is mild to a little heavier...

    should i go with the same 30 - 45 min before workout rule like protein or do the amino acids break down different?

    With meal I assume the uptake will get way slower / it will be similar to any other protein source. I would prefer to take it slightly before the meal in that case.

    Don't know if inbetween or before is better. Maybe before you lose the advantage the protein in the food would have, but on the other side those amino acids is around longer and could be used in the protein synthesis if needed (though probably aren't ...)

    Gotta go with the pre and post crowd. When I did triathlons which was constant cardio I was on Twin Labs Aminio Fuel for pre (20 min before on fairly empty stomach) as in not with a meal. Post was w/i 20 min after to aid recovery. It really worked well for me. I could tell the difference in energy and stamina.

    I've found that I get the best results if I take 2 1500mg tabs 30 mins before and straight after my workout. Then again before bed (repair whilst you rest).

    I get my amino acids through Purple Wraath which I drink throughout my workout. Is there a more efficient way to be taking this? Other information, I work out as soon as I get up, so I haven't eaten yet. White flood 30 minutes before and Purple Wraath (mixed with Creatine) during.

    I like taking free form amino acids intra workout, or before/after.

    No need for free form aminos at other times imo, just go for whole proteins from meats, eggs or whey/casein.

    some may not use it besides intra... but laynes research on Muscle Protein Synthesis makes a good case for between meals

    I have a jar of Primaforce bulk BCAAs (unflavored) and I just toss a serving in with my pre- on training days or my morning whey shake (Javapro).
