  3. 3. BCAA• Branched-chain amino acids – Lots of products – Different supplementation http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  4. 4. Productshttp://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  5. 5. Energie Needs• 80-100% of the bodys energy – supplied by fats and carbohydrates• normal conditions – amino acids can provide up to 20% of your energy• muscle proteins – a rich source of BCAAs – muscles can use the BCAAs directly http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  6. 6. BCAA Oxidation• BCAA oxidation during exercise period – 240% above baseline• total BCAA oxidation during a ride – 90% of the total requirement for various BCAAs http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  7. 7. BCAA Oxidation Conclusion• Not consumimg enough protein – to make up for that protein by a workout – body will strip aminos & BCAA • from muscles • This is obviously not something you want to happen http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  8. 8. Supplement Facts• Leucine• Isoleucine• Valine http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  9. 9. BCAA Benefits• Boosting Immune Function• Stimulate Fat Loss• Increased Recovery• Anti-Catabolic Effects• Endurance http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  10. 10. Results• The combination of glutamine and BCAAs – improve nitrogen balance – slow down muscle wasting• low dose combination – BCAA (3 grams) – glutamine (5 grams) – greater gain in muscle mass – greater gains in strength http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  11. 11. BCAA Dosage• maximize the various anabolic effects – approximately 9 grams per 100 pounds lean bodyweight per day. – BCAA dosages as high as .44 g BCAA per kg of lean bodyweight• 220 lbs (total weight) - 20 lbs (body fat in lbs)= 200 lbs / 2.2= 90.91 kg (weight in kg) X .44g = 40 grams BCAA per day. http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
  12. 12. BCAA Timing• splitting the dosage in half – consuming half 30 minutes prior – other half immediately after the workout• periods of dieting – supplemental levels of 2-5 grams BCAA and glutamine between meals http://www.what-are-bcaa.com
