The Importance of BCAA's/EAA's
BCAA's is short for Branched-chain Amino Acids while EAA's are short for Essential Amino Acids.
Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein. When your body digests protein from either a food source or protein supplement it breaks them down into individual Amino Acids.
BCAA's are key for protein muscle synthesis and have been proven to help the skeletal muscle. Leucine itself has been shown to stimulate muscle growth.
EAA's are needed to contribute to the regrowth of muscle fibers. EAA's have been shown to provide incredible benefits such as :
Muscle Maintenance - Especially when training in a fasted state.
Exercise Recovery - Drinking EAA post workout increases muscle protein synthesis and helps with fatigue and soreness
Appetite Regulation - EAA's activate the brain cells that regulate hunger and satiety
Our FACT Supplement includes both BCAA's and EAA's rather than your basic BCAA's product. Click here to check out the ingredient list!

Remember it is not about the weight
A common mistake made by many people is that they focus on how much weight they are lifting rather how they are lifting it. To get your muscles to grow your muscles need two things tension and stimulation. Your muscles do not know the difference between 20lbs and 40lbs. Slow and controlled form will increase both tension and stimulation and lead you to better results much quicker. Remember to squeeze throughout the whole set to force the blood and stimultion to the activeed muscle.
