I think the title may be a bit misleading, so let me explain.
I have been using a pre and post workout drink for the past 6 months or so with great result. I had been using BCAA before that, but the post wortkout drink seemed to provide the same result, so I dropped the BCAA pills.
Last week, for what ever reason I was out of it, exhausted, overworked at the gym, not really sure. So I bought some BCAAs again (same brand as before GNC Mega BCAA) and I've been feeling better.
So for the last week I've been taking 4 BCAA pills in the morning and 4 in the afternoon everyday and it's helping me to stay alert and energized.
Am I abusing the stuff or using it for the wrong reason and should be consuming something else?
I'm 42 years old and work out heavily 2-3 times a week, but dance lessons twice a week.
The BCAA pills contain - per four pills:
- L-leucine: 1600 mg
- L-isoleucine 800 mg
- L-valine 800 mg
- D-pinitol 60mg
