    i take 5g before my workout and 5g after my workout because the BCAA's speed up protein synthesis so you should deff take them in your post workout shake

    I just bought this product: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/bc.html

    How many caps should I take then? And should I just take them right before my workout? I normally am also taking a scoop of protein powder before my workout and a scoop after as well.

    How much do you weigh?

    I would take them pre & postworkout.

    Don't forget to have some carbs pre & postworkout as well.

    Pre, during and post workout are the best times to take BCAA. I usually recommend mixing it with whey protein isolate to get a full spectrum of aminos plus the benefits of extra leucine, isoleucine and valine.

    Okay so they just came today. I weigh 117 pounds. I'm also taking 1/2 scoop of protein powder and one full scoop after. How much additional caps should I take do you think?

    would it be ok to take BCAA tablets with NoXplode before a workout? Or at different times (like 10 mins apart)?

    I am thinking of getting a BCAA supplement and also nearly finished this creatine i'm on so i'm thinking of changing to NoXplode....

    Perfectly fine.

    However NO-X is not a 'creatine' product...... it contains far too little to do anything productive.

    I'm using this pre-workout supplement called M5 Extreme, it's ok, but can I take the BCAA Xtend with that before a workout?

    And if I do, then should I take BCAA after also along with my Whey protein Isolate?

    There are some schools of thought that say the only time BCAA's can be beneficial is when you are cutting and possibly not getting as much protein as usual. If you're eating a whole food diet with complete proteins then it's unlikely you need to suuplement with additional BCAA's. I've gone both ways and haven't noticed a difference in my workouts either with or without the BCAA's but I also haven't tried them while on a cut. My experience is based completely on eating at maint or bulking.
    You have to train your mind the same way you train your body. You must protect it against the negative and feed it with the positive. Be mindful of what you watch, what you read and who you allow to influence you. Learn to consider your thoughts emotions and actions. Trust your gut face your fears head on and never quit.
