    Question BCAA/Glutamine advice

    Hi, I'm 30 y/o ectomorph, training for 6 months, 178cm/72kg at the moment.
    Currently taking 30g Whey Protein after workout and 30g before sleep + 5g Creatine Monohydrate after workout + scoop of HotBlood NO before workout.
    I'm aiming to get to 78kg of muscle by the end of this year.
    My diet is very protein rich, but I wanted to add up some more supplementation, because why not
    I was thinking of BCAA or Glutamine? Or maybe both? How should I combine it with the rest of my supplementation, when is it best to take BCAA/Glutamine, before or after workout? Any other times during the day?

    You don't need either, especially if you are getting plenty of protein in your diet

    Just 5g creatine. No glutamine or BCAAs. You're consuming more than enough typically if you have an adequate protein intake.
    Supplement a good diet: don't diet on supplements.

    You aren't an ectomorph, you are an under eater.

    Don't spend any money on bcaa.

    Don't spend any money on glutamine.

    Track your daily nutrition somewhere free such as www.myfitnesspal.com

    If you aren't gaining weight, when you want to gain weight, you aren't consuming enough calories each day. So, consume more calories.

    So are you saying that BCAA/Glutamine are useless if I have good diet?
    What's the point in using them anyway?

    BCAAs are crucial for muscle growth and repair. Our bodies use the majority of these three aminos for fuel, and just because you're meeting your daily protein requirements doesn't guarantee a thing

    BCAAs are best taken prior and or during exercise, (10 grams) for optimal results. I've been using them for years with great success, and I would never train without them

    Glutamine is naturally produced, and most can meet and keep their levels heightened through diet. Benefits: immune support, gut health and muscle recovery

    The only way to determine the benefits is by using them, for the price they're definitely worth looking into

    When you’re dieting they’re valuable

    Glutamine would be my priority. It’s a virtually calorie free way to aid in immune function, heal the gut and increase growth hormone. It’s one of the cheapest yet most under rated supplements available.

    Bcaa’s while cutting will help you retain lean mass.

    These supplements are cost effective and depending what your goals are they can be useful.

    If you’re bulking/calorie surplus bcaa’s aren’t necessary, if you’re on a maintenance plan high dose bcaa’s during your workout can increase lean mass.
