BCAA: supplement routines before or after your workout


Before or After your workout ?

Branched-chain amino acids refer to three of the essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. Naturally, your body can’t produce these essential amino acids – instead, we seek BCAAs in food and additional supplements.

When working out, your body needs higher levels of energy, which a calorie-deficit diet doesn’t provide.

BCAA pre-workout

BCAA powder can be added to sports drinks, cordial or water for a pre-workout drink, usually around 5-10 grams per serving.

BCAA post-workout

Taking BCAA after your workout provides your body with essential amino acids which are the building blocks of protein.

Taking BCAA supplements , whether it is before or after your workout can help you to achieve your desired workout goals.
