    Until the area of "intra workout" nutrition came along, we all just drank water right? or failing that, we drank nothing and just cracked on with training hard. Well times move on, as does science and as it does, we need to accept that we were probably all missing some golden windows of opportunity in how to best take advantage of a variety of hormonal climates within then body.

    Without delving too much into the science and "why" and to simplify into the "what", consider these snippets of proven facts:

    1- During a workout, amino acids, including branched chain amino acids (BCAA), supply up to 15% of a muscle's energy needs.

    2- This use of BCAAs can go up by 500%, depending on the intensity and the duration of exercise.

    It used to be that body builders would have a big meal 2 hours before training and then a big liquid protein and carb drink immediately after. This theory works fine and until we knew any better, was about the best we could do. But as science develops and the understanding of targeted muscle building windows progresses, we have realised that there are times of any given day, when we can make huge differences to our muscle building, recovery and performance, by timing our macro nutrient intake. The biggest opportunity isn't breakfast (That was kind of a fallacy) it is around the training window- pre/intra/post. One is not great without the other two and two without the third is fine, but not as good as all three.

    By ingesting the right type of protein before and during a workout, you minimize the cannibalism of muscle. This is really the biggest part of trying to build muscle, holding on to the damned stuff. By using BCAA's during exercise (like Intra BCAA+) you spare muscle protein, negate protein degradation, and set the muscle up for regeneration and remodeling, otherwise known as growth.


    Intra BCAA+ from PhD Nutrition is a unique and innovative branched chain amino acid drink formulated with coconut water powder (to add some other cool benefits to the product) and it tastes great as well.

  • This product does what it says on the tin (or tub). Use during exercise only, add 1 scoop to at least 400ml of ice cold water (we like to fill our 1.5 litre PhD jugs up with water) and treat it as your best friend during your training session. Forget about the selfies and the chat (unless you are taking a picture of a PhD product) and carry this around with you, taking sips as you go.
