Knowing that BCAA supplementation has been pushed for years by some bodybuilders I'm wondering if this following study by Scivations should persuade me to sheel out more $$ for their product:
The supplement company Scivation conducted a double blind study (as posted on bodybuilding.com) where they compared giving trained weightlifters (at least 2 years of wieghtlifting training under their belts) their XTend product and compared it to giving a different slice of the group whey and a differetn slice gatorade. I guess they are claiming the XTend product group gained like 9 lbs of LBM in 8 weeks where as the whey group gained like 5 and the gatorade group like 1 lb. All the subjects were on a lean mass type diet so I assume all had adequate protein intake during the day without adding the XTEND, Whey or gatorade around workout time. I guess XTEND is pretty much a BCAA type of supplement.
