Mega-BCAA During Workouts?

Hey guys

Just read CP’s Q&A here: http://www.T-Nation.com/readTopic.do;jsessionid=8FFF172A6C75D7B8DFFDA64502B4ABF8.hydra?id=1525300

He recommends mega-doses of BCAAs during a workout - 40g for a 200lbs man. This is a ton of BCAAs! I definitely had reduced DOMS and better recovery with normal BCAA usage… but that mega dose sounds expensive.

Anyone try it and have worthwhile gains compared to taking a smaller dose?


I intend to. Check my journal in 4 weeks or so.
