Taking approx 0.44g per kg of bodyweight in BCAA's during training was recc'd by Mauro Di Pasquale for increasing GH and Insulin and a load of other benefits. So a 200lb guy would take about 40-41g. There is something pertaining to this on an audio file by Charles Poliquin on this site, I can't find it though, dunno if anyone else knows where it it.

I have tried this, the cost is inhibitive, but you seem to be using lots of this stuff anyway. I did get some good benefits on a lower intake of about 30g during workouts, I just used if when training back, which I wanted to improve at the time more than other body parts. It appears to work well.

Are you sure he wasn't talking about just protein, not BCAA's? Thats kind of a lot of BCAA's and I've heard the exact same number(.44g/kg bodyweight) for protein periworkout.

Evidently they used the same equation, but no it was using BCAA's, Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. I found the audio files in a post by Dr. Lonnie Lowery.
