Do you take your bcaa pre or post workout? or both?
Ive heard so many different things, just wanted some more opinions on it, ive heard people take it 10grams pre 15grams during and another 10grams of bcaa post workout. Then some people are telling me just post work out then others are only saying pre workout.. So I rather take my advice from muscle central, how do you take your bcaa?

I do both

I also do both. helps with muscle endurance during the workout and helps for quick recovery post. Try and get a good bcaa like xtend or chaind out that has citruline malate in it so it really absorbs fast.

I take 5 Six Star BCAA quick-dissolve tabs 1 hour pre-workout, a half hour later I take a mainly Creatine/Beta-Alanine pre-workout drink. Immediately AFTER 2 hour workout I pop another 5 quick-dissolve tabs as this helps recovery as I cannot eat regular food until about an hour or more after working out... I hope this helps!!

total waste of money
eat a meal an hour and a half before training and you'll have all the aminos you need. even if its whey and oatmeal or something similar.
you guys should consider stopping this wasteful supplement using and invest in some grassfed beef and just better quality food which is generally more expensive.
i stopped using all these stupid supplements and just stick to creatine and whey isolate and use the money i save to get higher quaslity food and my gains have been better than any supplement i ever took.
if your truly eating all day the way you should be there is no reason to supplement with addistional aminos

Pre-wo is most efficient, and 1h after wo is more efficient then just after. Both pre and post is better then any single dose though, of course.
I do: 10g EAA -> workout -> 10g EAA/Whey/Food -> Food.

In all honesty if you are taking a high quality whey protein along with other good sources of complete protein you probably dont need to be taking lots of BCAAs because your getting plenty of them through your food. Studies on BCAAs both promote the use and say that its not necessary if adequate protein is met through the diet. If you are going to work out for longer than 90 minutes at a time then BCAAs would be a good idea to keep you from getting catabolic. Also read through this journal article. Itll give you a lot of what you need to know with protein, BCAA, AAs, etc.
