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.


There are two files, can't remember which one its in.


maybe ill try and take the amount of bcaas he remembered... anyways what do you think about the rest of the diet?
