BCAA’s have been shown to reduce muscle breakdown during intense training by creating a more anabolic environment within the working muscles, therefore a lot of athletes will take BCAA’s pre-workout to ensure their training becomes more anabolic and less catabolic.
The working muscles have the ability to break down BCAAs for energy and will do so during times of increased energy needs such as starvation or exercise. This makes the body less likely to break down hard earned muscle tissue when there are BCAAs available This becomes significantly important for people that are on lower carbohydrate/calorie intakes, especially when performing higher intensity training.
Fat utilisation may not be possible due to training intensity, so the body will either break down the muscle tissue to gain amino acids (particularly BCAAs) to burn for fuel, or it will use any ingested BCAAs.
