    BCAA Daily Intake

    Dymatize Recoup has 7.2g per serving.

    Some days I have 3-4 servings. I love the way it tastes and drink these during softball tournaments. Is there such thing as too much BCAA? Just want to be sure.

    Nope. It's pretty much just protein. Only side effect is a lighter wallet lol

    Nope, pretty hard to overdose on BCAAs. If your at 3-4 servings per day, you're not even close to having to worry about anything.

    On a given day when cutting I take in 20-30g of BCAAs, if not more.

    Ok. I also consume 2 scoops of Dymatize Elite Iso and 2 Scoops Ultimate Nutrion Iso Wheat.

    The most I have of a BCAA drink is 4 servings a day. And I dont care about the cost. They taste better than plain water and aren't loaded with the crap as sports drinks. Water, Recoup, and RecoverPro are all I drink daily.

    Ive gone up to 50grams bcaa's (recoverpro) daily. They are more important on a hard cut and studies done back in the 90s showed a lot of bcaa's added muscle. (like 30 grams or so)

    they are a must getting ready for a show in my opinion

    honestly it just depends man, during my off-season when i'm taking in a good amount of good clean food i only take bcaa's about twice a day and it's usually pre and post workout. during my contest prep, i up that to 4-5 times daily. in the am, pre and post and before bed. i feel this routine helps me maintain muscle tissue during a restricted cutting diet. i know some people who take it way more than me but i feel this is what works best for me. try different protocols and see what works for you.

    Ok. Well I am on a cut, however, it is not exactly clean. I meet my macros and am on a high protein low fat diet. I am at about 1700 calories a day net. I train 4 days a week on weights and 3 days a week cardio (softball, biking, spinning, etc.). So what I am gathering is that I am good in what I am consuming and could actually shoot to consume more. Thank you.

    Calories are a little low. How far into the cut are you? Is this just a general cut or are you prepping for a show or anything like that?

    For the BCAAs, yes what you consume now is perfectly fine. BCAAs have an anti-catabolic effect which is why they are crucial on a cut. You are eating less and doing more cardio, putting your body at high risk for muscle loss. Upping the BCAAs on a cut is perfectly fine.

    About 45 days. General cut. I've lost just about 9 pounds. I am at 185-6 and aiming at 180. I'm trying to clean up my diet and bring my abs back out.

    Ah Ok, another 5-6 shouldnt be too bad. During one of my last cuts I came down to about 185ish and even at that point wasnt sub 2k calories. Thats why I was asking, they just seemed low.

    I used one of the BMR calculators recommended on here. I felt it was low too but anymore I am used to it. I load up on extra food on days I have softball or cycle because I easily burn 1200+ calories on those days.

    Yep, very critical to get a couple refeed days in a week. That will keep the metabby revving and give the hormones a boost.
