I’ve been following the whole amino pulsing/para-workout debate for some time but admit I’m a bit confused regarding competing amino acids.
Casein hydrosylate (CH) is allegedly the best source of protein for amino spiking purposes, followed by its whey counterpart (WH).
Initially CT stated CH was sufficient on its own but leucine should be added to WH. I’ve read today that he now also recommends leucine should be added to CH too. While in another school of thought, Layne Norton claims BCAAs are actually optimum for this purpose.
Given the theory that some aminos compete with each other, clearly following such supplement protocols could actually be a bit of a waste of time (and money). I’m confused. Can anyone clarify?
