Been getting tons of questions regarding whether you need to use BCAAs for gaining muscle. Check out my answer in this video below:

Do You Need BCAAs for Gaining Muscle?

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are among the nine essential amino acids that the body needs to function. There are 3 BCAAs which are leucine, isoleucine and valine. These amino acids are processed in the muscle tissue and the most anti-catabolic one is Leucine.

In my opinion, BCAAs are GREAT if you are dieting down and looking to gain muscle as you lose fat. If you are in an exclusive muscle building diet which gives you sufficient calories to gain muscle, you can still use them to accelerate results if your finances allow for it. If you are on a budget, you can pass on this supplement to be honest.

Best Way To Consume Them

The best way to consume BCAAs is before, during and after the workout. I use the Labrada Power BCAA product (mixed with PowerCarb for better utilization) as it is better to mix up the BCAAs in a drink than to swallow multiple capsules of 1 gram each (since I take 20 grams when using it during the workout).

You can also use the BCAAs in between meals. This is a great strategy not only to preserve muscle tissue as you are dieting, but also to suppress your appetite. 5-10 grams between meals will do the trick.

Bottom Line

For muscle building: If you have the finances to add it and further accelerate your gains, then why not. IF you don’t have the finances, then just stick to the basic supplements stack (multiple vitamins, protein and essential fats).

For fat loss/dieting: Excellent supplement to use in order to keep your muscle as you lose fat. It is during a fat loss diet that BCAAs work their magic best!

Bodybuilding is following a lifestyle that uses weight training, cardiovascular exercise and nutrition to re-shape your physique through the increase of lean muscle mass and reduction of fat stores.

Can I Use Bodybuilding Even If I Do Not Want To Get Too Big?

But wait a minute! You never want to step on a bodybuilding stage, nor do you have dreams of getting that big anyways. If that is the case, not a problem! To me, a bodybuilder is anyone that uses weight training, cardiovascular exercise and nutrition to accomplish specific fitness goals.

In this bodybuilding site I share with you the knowledge I’ve gained through many years of practicing the bodybuilding lifestyle so that you too can achieve any physique goal you may have. How far you take your physique development or whether you ever get to compete or not are entirely up to you.

And if you fear getting too big by accident then believe me, that look will definitely not happen by mere chance. This is especially true for women since they do not produce the amount of testosterone needed to grow their muscles to the size that a man can accommplish. It takes years of strict adherence (almost to an obsessive level) to a bodybuilding lifestyle, in addition to calculated planning of your workouts and nutrition plan, to accomplish such an endeavor.

However, if getting really big and shredded (bodybuilding term for defined) is your goal, then no need to worry as in this site you will find all of the information you will need to accomplish that as well. [Read more…]
