    BCAA's are great at all points throughout the day. i like to take some when i wake up, then pre and post workout as your bottle says, and then sometimes at night before bed as well.

    I haven't been able to get a straight answer on this either brother. I've read university studies which conflict each other on the pre/during/post question. Also have read conflicting bro-science posts in here and other forums about it. Seems like everyone has a differing opinion on how fast BCAAs get digested, get into the bloodstream, get to the muscles, when the muscles actually need them, whether your body stores what it can't immediately use, etc.

    In the end and after reading myself in circles, I tried out a few different dosing strategies and have seen and felt the best results with taking them within 30 mins pre training and immediately after training.

    Good luck my dude.

    I've recently started a workout routine after deciding I needed to get healthy and I've been doing a lot of reading about metabolism, proteins, and how they tie in to weight loss and muscle gains. I recall reading something from Layne Norton where he said he takes BCAAs before he goes to bed to help keep his metabolism running high during sleep.

    all i have seen from him is his recommendation on taking them inbetween meals spaced at least 4 hours apart
