Fasted walking and BCAAs (2:1:1)
When leaning up for competition, bodybuilders and muscle models may employ the tactic of fasted walking to directly target fat cells. This involves walking for 30 – 45 minutes before they eat their first meal each day. To prevent their muscles from going into a catabolic state, they will consume BCAAs before the walk. This way they can feed their muscles the necessary nutrients they need while still receiving the benefits of fasted walking.

Who Should Use BCAA (2:1:1)?
