    yeh i actually read about the bcaa, and hav done it at times, but always thought sports drink were taken aswell, i take bcaa only after a sesssion due to the cost factor.

    but very interesting to see no one use's the sports drinks, i think ill be switching to water and keeping my teeth

    its a protein powder i make up when at the track. It has a blend of quick proteins and slow proteins (digestive rate). I start sipping about 30min into. and finnish of the rest at the conclusion of training, if there is any left.
