BCAA's during, thats about it.
For the last year or so I've been playing around with different intra-workout nutrition approaches and have found that with proper supplements and amounts it makes a night/day difference! Recovery time has significantly improved so I can train harder more frequently. Also I feel I have increased pumps, strength, and over all size gain over time. What are everyone's thoughts on intra-workout nutrition? What protocol do you follow?

oh intra is a must i saw a huge difference. id say if you trying to put on muscle do 10g bcaas/50g carb i usually use karbolyn. Dieting or maintain id cut carbs in half or just take the carbs away

I use gaspari size on.
Glycofuse or any cyclic dextrins with:
BTW intra workouts save my lifts. I generally have low blood sugar around lifting time(not diabetic), if I didn't time everything just right I would crash in the middle of working out. Since I incorporated an intra workout, haven't crashed once.
BCAA's with a carb, some electrolites, & vit C. I'll ditch the carb if training is under 45 minutes.
Cyclic carbs and hydro casein in a lot of water sipped during workout also load up on bcaa 30 min prior
xtend from scivation is awesome. i had trouble with bcaa not mixing well but not a problem with xtend. if you have trouble consuming daily water intake this can help to

Awesome information. I've been doing
Thank after I finish my jug of karb I'm going to give some branched cyclic dextrins a try. Glycofuse by Gaspari will most likely be what I go with. Seems to be the best bang for the buck?
Mix plain oats, peanut butter sandwiches and whey shakes to consumed while in the gym.
HBCD'S definitely made a difference for me, especially with slin.
Building more muscle mass will require more force in lifting. What I mean by that is the heavier the weight is, as well as how fast you push it, creates force. This force will in turn build more muscle.
Increasing muscle mass is more about using...
1) Moderately heavy loads (60 - 80% of 1 RM).
2) Moderate reps (8-12).
3) Short rest periods between sets (60 seconds).
4) High Volume (8 plus sets per movement).
The pump produces an anabolic environment for muscle growth.
Increasing strength with heavier loads, more force is a component of increasing muscle mass.
However, training for strength alone is not effective for hypertrophy.
DES thank me later
Hbcds 25-100g depending on goals and 20g bcaa 10g glutamine 5 gram creatine.
Pre-workout: GAT Nitroflex + D-pol + Nitrix

I work at a supp store, so all my supps are free. They are given to me by reps and distributors. So, I try to use the best money would buy. I have an arsenal of supps that I haven't even gotten around to trying.
The only thing that isn't given to me is glutamine. I wonder if it is worth buying when taking into consideration how much other stuff I am already taking.
