BCAA Boosted for Freakish Fat Loss From Fasted Cardio to Reveal the Steel
Fasted cardio is one of the most demanding activities for hardcore athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The cardio session itself is tough enough, but it’s the hunger pangs and low energy that are faced during fasted cardio that force you to push your own mental and physical boundaries in order to dominate. That’s especially true when you realize you’re constantly on the brink of burning off your hard-earned muscle during this high-intensity fat-burning process. BCAA Boosted is SAN Nutrition’s brilliant creation that will erase the pain and worry and virtually eliminate the physical sacrifice…
BCAA Boosted is the ultimate muscle-defending, energy-boosting, and fat-melting solution whether you’re in pre-contest mode or using it as part of your ultra-intense daily routine. Performing fasted cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach allows you to dive deep into the fat-burning zone, but it requires an entirely different level of motivation, discipline, and focus. BCAA Boosted gives you that mental drive and the raw energy needed to get the job done every time you hit the gym, and it preserves your muscle tissue so the only thing you’re burning is body fat. And yes, it works well with fasted or regular cardio.
By definition, fasted cardio is exactly what the name implies. You perform your cardiovascular work in a fully fasted state, with no food in your stomach. It’s possible to do this later in the day, but that would mean spending a lot of time feeling the pain of hunger throughout your day. This is why fasted cardio is best performed first thing in the morning after you’ve been fasting through the night for 10+ hours.
Even a typical pre-workout drink means you’re giving into the hunger and adding calories that fully defeat the purpose of fasted cardio. You must have zero calories, and that’s why BCAA Boosted has zero macros. That’s right, BCAA Boosted fuels your early morning cardio with tons of energy while preserving muscle tissue, and it does so with zero calories and zero macros being added to your diet. That also means it doesn’t interfere with your daily protein, fat, or carbohydrate intake, so you don’t need to account for any additional calories.
Q: I’ve become a big fan of fasted cardio because it seems to work really well for me, but I feel like I’ve started to lose energy, and I think I’m starting to lose some muscle. It sounds like this would help with both, but will it mean I’m not technically fasting because of the amino acids/protein?
A: That’s a valid concern, and it’s exactly why we formulated BCAA Boosted specifically for fasted cardio (though it can be used as a pre-workout formula, too). There are no carbohydrates, and the 2:1:1 BCAA blend is enough to protect you from going into a catabolic state but not nearly enough to bump you out of your fasted state. You get the energy you need to fight through your HIIT work along with a healthy dose of muscle-saving insurance plus enough fat-burning boosters to make your work even more productive.*
Q: I’m about to start doing fasted HIIT sessions first thing in the morning, but I’m a bit concerned with my electrolyte balance since there’s caffeine in BCAA Boosted and I would’ve gone 10-12 hours without drinking much water. Should I mix this in an electrolyte drink?
A: That’s not necessary, and most electrolyte drinks are loaded with sugar which would take you out of your fasted state. We want you performing at your peak, so BCAA Boosted includes an advanced electrolyte complex to make sure your fully hydrated during your cardio or HIIT workout.*
