Among the most beneficial and effective supplements in any sports nutrition program are branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). These are the essential aminos: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The combination of these three essential amino acids make up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the human body, and play an important role in protein synthesis, and thus muscle growth and repair. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the human body and is arguably the most important in the process of building muscle and gaining strength. Citrulline malate again may enhance Nitric Oxide production (also increases natural arginine levels), promote aerobic energy production as well as post-training recovery and cause a reduction in the sensation of fatigue, with reduced levels of lactic acid and ammonia. Simply put, the delicious BCAA Power Punch will allow bodybuilders and strength and power athletes to train harder and longer while speeding recuperation from exercise!
"I'm a competition climber, so I spend much of my time training. After a tough session I'd find my body was sore for days after, no matter how much protein I took in.
That is where this product comes in. I only discovered it a few months ago but since then I rarely ache the next day, and not at all the day after that (no matter how brutal the session before is).
Taste is good, mixability is good...the nuclear orange colouring is a little off putting ;) but on the whole this is an amazing product well worth the cost.
If you have problems with soreness/recovery - get this."

"I used to have terrible aching problems days after a work-out and it was really affecting my training. I bought this, and it's brilliant.
The BCAA's and Glutamine really help with my recovery, and now I don't ache at all the next day.
I'm 12.5st, and mix 3 scoops with 500-600ml of water and sip during my workout. Mixes really easily in a shaker. Taste is really good whilst your training.
Only gave 4/5 as it supposedly should give a pump, but I don't experience that."

"A good amount of BCAAs & Glutamine in each serving - good value compared to some of the BCAA tablets. Taste is OK, but not that easy to mix."

Qhi. i was wondereding im allready on creatine and mass tech would i benefit more if i came of creatine and went onto bcaa power punch? because i know mass tech has amino in allready.
For gaining mass, the best two product categories are weight gainers and creatine. Two daily servings of Mass-Tech has all the creatine you'll need but if you only take one serving daily, you'd need to take more creatine for the first several days to get maximum results.
BCAAs are great to take especially before but also after training but don't drop creatine to take BCAAs.
Qhi. im allready on mass tech and creatine. would i benefit more if i came on creatine and went onto bcaa power punch? becuase know mass tech includes creatine and aminos in allready. and how many servings would you recommend a day?
Qi take muscle fuel anabolic,would it be ok to take bcaa power punch during a training session and to mix creatine powder with the muscle fuel anabolic and take straight after?
BCAA power punch would be better off used around 30-60 minutes prior to training, although studies do show an essential amino acid product will be much more beneficial pre-training. BCAA products have a much greater effect taken post-training.
Muscle fuel anabolic already contains the right amount of creatine needed for a single serving uptake so no additional creatine is needed.
Please follow manufactures directions of use.
QHow long will a 400g tub of usn's bcaa power punch last? Will there be enough for a months supply taking it before and after training so twice a day?
There is 33 servings in a 400g tub so if taken twice per day then this product will last you around 16 days.
QI am currently taking USN Diet Whey twice a day after working out, could I introduce this drink somewhere into my day aswell, or are there limits to the amount of BCAA's /Glutamine that a person should take in?
Whilst there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to BCAA and glutamine intake (owing to individual variance), it is advisable that you take supplements in accordance with their specified guidelines.
Generally speaking, it is best to take BCAA formulae before and after training (and during, depending on the product).
For USN BCAA Power Punch, the directions are as follows:
"Mix 2 heaped teaspoons (13g) into 500-750ml of cold water in your water bottle and shake well for 30 seconds.
Individuals weighing 85kg and more should take 4 heaped teaspoons. Sip drink prior, during and after training/event."
Qi am using usn pure protein and i was wandering what the best company selling bcaa tablets.
There are many decent companies that produce a good quality BCAA.
Here are a few of the most popular -
Reflex - BCAA
USN - BCAA Syntho stack
Muscletech - BCAA
PHD - BCAA
Qis it ok to take powre punch just befroe my portion
Yeah that is fine. This can be taken anytime of the day or night.
QI know the directions state Sip Prior ,During and After .I use 1 scoop USN GH Hardcore Whey Pre Workout and 2 Scoops Post Workout .Would you suggest taking BCAA power punch during my workout or Pre Workout or Post Workout as I am using Hardcore Whey Pre and Post workout ?Any advise would be helpful .
Considering you use Hardcore Whey GH as a pre and post-training supplement, you could opt to use BCAA Power Punch simply as an intra-workout product.
Qhi im new in suplements. just start workout to lose weight will be taking thermobol or medi evil excalibur as fat burner in the morning. looking for something that will help me to not burn my muscles during workouts is this the right for me? after workout im thinking about cellmass 2.0
