legit

I’ve used BCAA's for a few years and think they are beneficial intra workout especially on a caloric deficit. I feel like I train better, am more refreshed, have better endurance, and I’m also big believer on nutrients during training since that's when our bodies are most nutrient sensitive and partition the best.
