once again, i would like to bring to your attention the importance of bcaas in your training and recovery programs. this has been said over and over again, taking bcaas prior to and post exercise with help attain, maintain an anabolic state and help in musclebuilding, and/or recovery!

Amino Acid Supplements and Recovery from High-Intensity Resistance Training.
Sharp CP, Pearson DR.

1Department of Health and Human Performance, College of Charleston, Charleston, South Carolina; and 2Strength Research Laboratory, Ball State University, Muncie, IN.

Sharp, CPM and Pearson, DR. Amino acid supplements and recovery from high-intensity training. J Strength Cond Res 24(4): 1125-1130, 2010-The purpose of this study was to investigate whether short-term amino acid supplementation could maintain a short-term net anabolic hormonal profile and decrease muscle cell damage during a period of high-intensity resistance training (overreaching), thereby enhancing recovery and decreasing the risk of injury and illness. Eight previously resistance trained males were randomly assigned to either a high branched chain amino acids (BCAA) or placebo group. Subjects consumed the supplement for 3 weeks before commencing a fourth week of supplementation with concomitant high-intensity total-body resistance training (overreaching) (3 x 6-8 repetitions maximum, 8 exercises). Blood was drawn prior to and after supplementation, then again after 2 and 4 days of training. Serum was analyzed for testosterone, cortisol, and creatine kinase. Serum Testosterone levels were significantly higher (p < 0.001), and cortisol and creatine kinase levels were significantly lower (p < 0.001, and p = 0.004, respectively) in the BCAA group during and following resistance training. These findings suggest that short-term amino acid supplementation, which is high in BCAA, may produce a net anabolic hormonal profile while attenuating training-induced increases in muscle tissue damage. Athletes' nutrient intake, which periodically increases amino acid intake to reflect the increased need for recovery during periods of overreaching, may increase subsequent competitive performance while decreasing the risk of injury or illness.

So the BCAAs that are already in the protein powders or recovery drinks are not enough ?

sure, i get mine from beyond a century. bcaa's taken prior to exercise and immediately aftwards provide an almost instant boost the the amino acid pool necessary for mediation of protein catabolism and anabolism. in this regard they work better than just whey alone. why will take longer to breakdown and become available so fills a role of providing the aminos over a longer term.

I have powdered BCAAs so i just add them to my homemade sports drink and recovery drink. They doesn't seem to change the flavor at all and dissolve pretty well. It just seems to make it easier for me to remember to take them if i add them ahead since all my tubs are next to each other.

i take the mixed bcaas because they are more crystalline and do not poof! leucine is very light and i end up with it all over the place trying to take straight tablespoons.
