If you were going to supplement with one of the two ON TOP OF your normal post-workout protein, which one would you choose, and when would you take it?

I'm looking to further optimize my training routine by adding some additional supplementation. I'm not looking to get big, simply to achieve as optimal performance as possible during my workouts and recovery periods.

I'm a BJJ athlete, teaching and training ~5x per week, with added strength and conditioning training (usually sport specific bodyweight exercises and calisthenics). I eat *fairly* clean, primarily lean sources of protein, large amounts of fruits and veggies, and good quality fats. I basically only drink water unless I'm mixing my protein with milk or having the morning cup of coffee.

Creatine, it actually works.

If your diet is decent and eat enough protein you won't even notice bcaa supps.

BCAA: 10-20 grams daily, on top of hitting your protein goals. If you aren't hitting your protein goals, work on that first. Not cheap.

Creatine: just take it for 3-4 months, 5 grams a day, 10 grams a day on workout days if you really want to. Super duper dirt cheap.

Never buy shit form GNC...its all overpriced as fuck, and the tards that work there usually dont know what the fuck they are talking about. buy all supplements online. much cheaper. and research what your buying before you buy it.
