What better on a warm day than icecream? Or sorbet? Or a tall glass of slushie? Yeah… except that I’m dieting for a bodybuilding show.
Hang on… there’s a way to get your aminos in and enjoy a summertime slushie treat, y’know. Just make a BCAA (or iBCAA in this case) ice slush drink! It’s easy as 1-2-3.
Put it all in your blender.
Blend it up.
Pop it in a glass, grab a straw, take a break in the sunshine and enjoy.
Return to work feeling refreshed and full of amino acids. (And ice)
The myprotein iBCAAs are basically instantised BCAAs (branch chain amino acids) which you mix in with water – easier and tastier than taking a load of tablets/capsules and very refreshing in this weather. If you’re watching your sweetener intake, you should know that it’s sweetened with Sucralose.
You can have them during the day, intra-training or they’d be a great choice if you’re someone who does fasted training/fasted cardio, too. On days when I take the dog out for a powerwalk before breakfast, I make sure I have two things: BCAAs, and a black coffee.
This product gives a 2:1:1 ratio of isoleucine, valine and leucine (the current mega-star of the amino world) – amino acids which can’t be synthesised by our bodies.
