    Hello Joe and Bryce,

    Hope you both are doing well. Every pro bodybuilder that I see seems to take EAA intraworkout. From my understanding, this is to minimize muscle catabolism and promote muscle anabolism via leucine.

    1) If you are eating chicken, beef, etc every 3-4 hrs, is taking a few grams of AA actually effective? I may be mistaken, but the studies that support EAA usage use people who are not taking in high amounts of protein nor animal proteins frequently.

    2) If you have a nice hydrolyzed whey isolate that digests well and has similar dosing (about 3-5g Leucine, 10-15g EAA), why use EAA instead? Whey is more cost effective imo, tastes better, and has all the AA so you know muscle protein synthesis will not be limited by being deficient in any AA. If all you guys are doing this specific protocol, there must be something I am missing.

    3) Any plans to put out a video on carb cycling in the near future? Would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks for all the content and support! You guys are doing a phenomenal job!

    Thank you for taking the time to respond, Bryce! I really appreciate it. I couldn’t agree more, whole foods and a focus on micronutrients is very important. Outside of the workout, I will do everything in my power to have a whole food meal with chicken, egg, fish, etc, rice/potatoes, and vegetables.

    You mentioned that EAA could be taken post workout. Do you think that they have a benefit over whey with similar EAA profile in the context of an intraworkout shake where I can’t necessarily have real food?
