Short list this week, one for the parents and one for those of you relying on activity trackers to adjust your meals and eat more food. Earlier this week, there was a study released that looked at the efficacy of BCAA and determined that the ingestion of BCAA’s does not increase muscle or have any effect when taken intra-workout. Instead of giving you a scientific boredom to read, I just wanted to sum it up with: pre-workout BCAA is good for endurance and post-workout BCAA is good for recovery, but taken during the workout, no scientific proof of benefit.
Also, look for a new training strategy for busy people (read: new parents) that I have been using these last two weeks with great success sent out through our mailing list.
And yes, Happy Father’s day to all the fathers out there.
