Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted II Denis Waitley


What are BCAAs ?

The BCAAs are made up of three essential amino - leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They are essential because the body is unable to make them out of other amino acids, meaning they must be ingested through food or supplements.BCAAs are usually taken in order to boost muscle growth and reduce muscle fatigue after exercise. There are evidence that BCAAs also helps in weight loss and increase the endurance levels of an athlete.

What is the use of BCAAs ?

When the body is under stress, BCAAs act directly on muscle cells and promote protein synthesis ,the higher the protein synthesis rate the more will be the muscle growth-the goal of all bodybuilders. BCAAs also help prevent protein catabolism (muscle breakdown) by acting as a readily available fuel source for muscles during intense workout sessions.

Benefits of BCAAs ?

BCAAs has so many benefits :

-- It enhances muscle protein synthesis leading to higher muscle growth,however BCAAs need to be backed up with high protein diet to harness its full benefit.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
