I've recently began revamping my supplementation.
As of now, I'm only taking protein and creatin (although admittedly, I didn't really adhere to the recommended rationing / week plans of creatin).
I go to gym relatively often (5-6 times a week), so I got to know some people, who do body-building seriously. One of which was a qualified personal trainer and when I asked him about what should I add to my supplementation, he said:
As to somewhat of my personal surprise, as I did my own personal research into supplementation, the BCAA was missing in his list. When I confronted him about it, he said, that for a non-competing builder, the BCAA supplementation is completely unnecessary.
Which leads me to my question: Should I be taking BCAA?
- If yes, what are the pros and cons?
- If not, and the trainer was right, why shouldn't I be taking?
As a bonus question, if you have any suggestion as to what to add or remove in my supplementation list, I'd be more than happy to know
