"SJ, what's so good about BCAAs? Should I be taking them?"

Branch Chain Amino Acids assist in preventing the breakdown of muscle when training fasted, if you’re performing cardio first thing in the morning (provided you haven’t eaten for 6~ hours prior) you’ll be in an optimal zone to burn fat, however you run the risk of muscle breakdown too.

Supplementing with Branch Chain Amino Acids such as these are the solution for your fasted cardio.

BCAA’s aren’t exclusively for intra-workout nutrition, if you’re in a aggressive caloric deficit I recommend sipping on some branch chain aminos pre-w0rkout too.

Although they can be costly (therefore I don’t recommend them to everyone!) BCAA’s do make a noticeable difference in terms of endurance during longer workouts, particularly when cutting.

Instead of fading towards the end of my workout I’m able to continue to keep up with the prescribed weight and number of reps I’m hitting.

Sip on branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s) during your workouts to give your endurance a slight edge.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
