Interesting article, I’ve also always believed that BCAAs are better off saved for peri/post workout when in a caloric deficit.
I found this quote from J. Harris to be sorta funny. He took this as a time to plug his own product but still sounded sorta stupid by saying “BCAA and L-Leucine” when as we all know, Leucine IS! a BCAA.
I believe in their benefit so much (especially around weight training sessions) that I formulated my own product called Anatrop. Anatrop contains specific amounts of BCAAs and L-leucine, which I feel creates a higher level of anabolism when the body is most receptive to those nutrients.
Swing and a miss!
The product is BCAAs with EXTRA L-Leucine, which is actually a pretty good idea.[/quote]
Oh, I’m not saying it’s a bad idea. I too have a Peri-Post WO shake with BCAA and I add 5g of Leu extra…but the wording made it sound as if he thought BCAA and Leu were different.
