I've recently started taking BCAA's and I'm not completely sure when I should be taking them. I've read different things from different people and it sounds like taking them post workout is the best. I am also taking whey protein, casein protein, pre workout and creatine. When would be the best times to take these and are they okay to be mixing?

Bcaa's can be taken anytime they help you through the day, like myself i take them while doing cardio specially when fasting to avoid muscle breakdown, and like i said anytime u like they will always be effective, and whey protein i always take it after training mixed with creatine, casien u can take it before bed like most ppl but dont really have any special timing unless u knoe you aint going to eat for awhile since it lays in your digestive system alil longer then any other protein to keep feeding your muscles....everything is a personal choice aslong as your getting your needed calories for the day (your macros) and this is how i do like most ppl hope u get the ideaNo Pain, No Gain....¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Take your protein whenever you want, timing isn't an issue just make sure you hit your protein macro for the day. No real need for casein, especially before bed. Your body won't go catabolic overnight.
