I have come up with my own BCAA protocol. I wanted to keep it to 5 servings of 5 g (25g) daily.
On Workout Days: Upon Waking, Pre-Workout, Post-Workout, Before Bed, Mid Sleep.
On Non- Workout Days: Upon Waking, Mid Morning, Mid Afternoon, Before Bed, Mid Sleep.
I am in a clean bulk and am consuming 5000-6000 calories daily, with of course 2g protien per Ib. The before bed and mid sleep will be in addition to a Metabolic Drive shake (with peanut butter for delayed absorbtion).
Does anyone have any suggestions for me to change the way I am supplementing with BCAAs?
Since PB is known to trigger a high insulin response, you might want to be careful about using it too frequently.
As for BCAAs, I’ve gotten a better response from using higher dosages less frequently than what you’ve proposed. I’m currently using 10 Biotest BCAA tablets upon rising and immediately following training. I consume Surge after I get out of the shower.
However, as opposed to your goals, I’m working on increasing my strength-to-weight ratio by lowering body fat. As a result, you may be better served by having Surge immediately after training.
