    Are there substitute exercises if you don’t have the cable machines? Like with Dumbbells?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Yeah definitely! You could do dumbbell curls instead of cable curls (or hammer curls), and you could do lying dumbbell tricep extensions with dumbbells.

      Branched chain amino acids. It refers to three amino acids—leucine, isoleucine, and valine and helps to promote muscle protein synthesis, helps with recovery and lean muscle growth.

    Any unflavored BCAA ? I find artificial sweeteners to be the worst ever for your health. Even stevia or agave aren’t as healthy as lead to believe. I get everything unflavored and flavor myself with mostly fruits or just drink natural.
    Thank you

      Hi Summer, at this time we don’t have any unflavored BCAAs, but that is a great idea! Thanks for the feedback.

    If Stevie is not good, but yet it’s better than slenda, etc. What do you recommend.

    How often are these arm circuits to be done? 2 or 3 times a week? Or 4-5 days? Should you rest in between these arm days and do a different muscle group like legs? I want to work hard but also want to allow for proper growth and recovery. I have my green apple bcaa’s ready to go too! 😉

      I would just do it a few times a week. You should definitely rest in between those arm days! I like to focus on one or two muscle groups a day, and give myself a break (2-3 days) between working the same muscles again.

      Hi Denise! I’m so glad you found us. So we do have an article talking about injury/surgery and how to cope, you can read it here: http://www.idealfit.com/blog/coping-with-injury/. The best person to talk to though would be your doctor and physical therapist to help you through this time. We definitely do recommend incorporating supplements into your day and keeping a healthy diet. 🙂

    I just have had rotator cuff surgery and will not be ready for any weight lifting for a few months… will this 15 day free offer be available when I am ready in a few months?

    Hi, I have been mixing a 1/2 scoop of raspberry lemonade BCAAs with 1/2 a scoop of blue raspberry pre workout and drink it on my way to work. I am a housekeeper and sweat 3-5 hours a day working. Am I getting the benefits if only using a 1/2 scoop of each? And is mixing them ok? I love the taste!

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      Hi Amber! You know, I’ve never really heard of anyone combining them, but I don’t see the issue in that. Typically, you want a full scoop of the BCAAs for optimal benefits, so maybe increase the water amount in your shaker bottle and do a full scoop, and continue your half scoop of Pre-Workout if that serving size as been working for you! I don’t see why you shouldn’t be able to mix them, so keep doing that if you enjoy it 🙂
