Athletes and active adults always look into maintaining fitness while losing weight and this is best achieved by caloric restriction in combination with exercise. During this process, a risk for lean tissue loss, which can limit performance happens. Many studies addressed this issue to determine the effectiveness of a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplement, in conjunction with heavy resistance training and a carbohydrate caloric-restricted “cut diet” on body composition and muscle fitness.
Studies have shows that the use of supplements containing BCAAs while following 8 or more weeks of resistance training program resulted in a greater decrease in percent body fat, an increase in lean mass, and 10-RM strength gains on the bench press and squat vs. ingestion of a whey supplement or a sports drink. In addition, the ingestion of a whey protein supplement resulted in greater lean mass gains than ingestion of a sports drink.
