  1. Well, a BCAA supplement on it's own is definitely not a "naturally occuring" product. BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, valine) are found in foods with protein. BCAA supps can be helpful for someone interested in preserving/gaining muscle mass.
  2. Update: STS BCAA's ARE vegan. Nice. www.sts-sports.com
  3. Update on Optimum Nutrition BCAA's. They ARE NOT vegan. Slim pickings.....
  4. Update on NOW Brand BCAA's: They ARE NOT vegan. Bummer.
  5. Another update... BCAA's from MRM-USA ARE vegan! www.mrm-usa.com
  6. Update: Betancourt BCAA Chewies ARE NOT vegan. The leucine is derived from duck feathers.
  7. Dude - I'm going. I can't wait. Maybe I'll see you around?
  8. Nu-World puts out some Amaranth cereals that have a good amount of protein. Anyone try them? See here: http://www.nuworldamaranth.com/cart/products.asp?grouping_id=2
  9. Yeah - you have to check with the company to see if its vegan. Some are derived from dairy. These brands have a vegan BCAA product: Scivation Xtend NOW Arizona Nutritionals (Blox) Optimum Nutrition
  10. Hey Troy, Do you ever incorporate dynamic warm-ups? They can help to prevent injuries. Just a thought...

  14. You are absolutely right. I'm changing gyms in May and will have access to a Hack Squat and regular squat rack. Right now I'm a victim of my gym and it has really nothing to offer as far as weight and exercises in the leg department. But I'm gonna try and change up the routine a little, maybe move to one leg presses, that way I can take some more weight with less reps. Don't forget about barbell hack squats, bulgarian split squats, overhead lunges...... ahhhh, legs.
  15. Dude - nice vid. Do you have an online training/diet log? I would love to see a sample menu for one day. Do you have trouble putting on size? How long have you been training?
  16. OMG - his arms are crazy. Do you think he will beat DJ at the AC? Rob - are you going to the expo? Does vega have a booth?
