I’ve been doing Intermittent Fasting (16/8) for more than a year now, with awesome results.
I have two small/medium meals then train in the early evening, followed by one last huge meal before 8pm. I do not train fasted.
However, I wonder if there would be any anabolic benefit to taking one dose of BCAA’s (high in leucine). First thing in the morning (during the fasted state), even if I don’t train fasted? If fasted training protocols allow the use of several servings of BCCA’s during the fasted state - then surely the insulin response from BCCA’s is limited - and thus, it may be beneficial for muscle growth for me to add in one serving in the morning to help with recovery, and provide the muscles with some building blocks - while I remain fasted until 12am.
Any feedback would be great^^
