BCAA's - the sensible insurance policy to save your muscle during rigid precontest dieting and training ...
During precontest dieting it is essential to keep your protein intake high. In fact, as your body fat becomes lower and lower, it seems almost impossible to continue to hold on to your hard earned muscle tissue. The paradox is that as the contest approaches, you instinctively train harder, increase your cardio and tighten your diet even further. Your goal is to somehow maintain, or even increase your lean muscle tissue while continuing to burn fat. Unfortunately you're putting your body at the brink of catabolism. Research provides us with incontestable evidence that a practical solution is at hand.

What the research tells us
Research has found that BCAA's will positively influence protein synthesis. This suggests that supplementation with Beverly International's two premier Branched Chain Amino Acids, Muscle Mass and Muscularity will help bodybuilders in a catabolic (breaking down) state or a muscle wasting state.
- In the Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, 42:473-487, 1983, an experiment was described in which humans were given therapeutic amounts of these amino acids each day. Fifty percent of the administered load of BCAA's was utilized by skeletal muscle and the other appeared to be utilized by tissues that were undergoing protein wasting. This indicates that your muscles would benefit from the administration of the BCAA's during contest dieting.
How's this work in the real world?
As impressive as the above research is, it's only a smattering of the evidence that exists regarding the ability of BCAA's to preserve muscle tissue during dieting situations. Some of the mistakes that you may have made in the past if you tried branched chains and experienced little benefit:
