Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


Hey, guys, Sean Nalewanyj, of EliteImpactLabs.com.
And today, I want to do a quick review on “Multi-spectrum Amino Acids Supplements.”
So, if you’re trying to build muscle, burn fat or gain strength, protein is obviously
going to be the most important nutrient in your overall diet. It’s responsible for building
and repairing damaged muscle tissue. And it’s the only nutrient that can directly improve
your body composition on its own. Now, protein is made up of individual building blocks called
“Amino acids”. There are typically around 20 recognized amino acids found in the human
body, eight of which are considered to be essential, because they can’t be manufactured,
and have to be consumed through your diet. And because of the central role that amino
acids play in the muscle building process, many supplement companies offer formulas that
contain a wide spectrum of these amino acids in liquid or pill form. But are amino acid
supplements worth your money? The reality is that your body is very efficient at the
process of digestion and absorption. And all of the regular proteins that you are consuming
throughout the day are going to be eventually broken down into these individual amino acid
building blocks anyway. Amino acid supplements simply provide these building blocks in pre-digested
free form, so that they can be utilized by your body at a faster rate. However, having
those amino acids utilized at a faster rate, doesn’t really provide you with any unique
advantage over consuming regular whole food proteins. If you’re consuming a standard bodybuilding
diet that includes about 1gram of protein per pound of body weight each daily, you’re
always going to have a steady stream of amino acids available when your body needs it. So,
there’s nothing inherently wrong with amino acid supplements from the standpoint of basic
effectiveness, it’s just that you’re going to end up paying a much higher cost on a gram
for gram basis for a product that is essentially protein compressed into tablet or liquid form.
A much more effective and economical route is to simply supplement with a high quality
whey protein powder. Whey protein will be less expensive per serving. And it’s going
to provide your body with a protein source that is already rich in the most anabolic
amino acids available, particularly L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine. Now, what about
singular, isolated amino acids? Well, I don’t recommend bothering with the multi-spectrum formulas
for the reasons that I’ve outlined in this video. There are few singular amino acids
that are worth supplementing with individually in higher amounts that you aren’t going to
get from diet, and that you’re not going to get from the multi-spectrum formulas. So,
the main ones that I recommend would be first off, Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine, raises intramuscular
levels of carnosine which improves muscular strength and endurance. And a highly reliable
dosage for that is 3.2grams taken daily. The second would be Acetyl L-Carnitine, which has
been shown to have positive effects on fat loss and cognitive function for improved focus
during your workouts. And I recommend about 2grams taken 30 to 45 minutes pre-workout.
The third would be L-Carnitine L-Tartrate, which improves muscle recovery and increases
androgen receptor sensitivity. And the study dose for LCLT is 2grams daily. And finally,
L-Tyrosine, 1gram to 3grams taken pre-workout has been shown to improve mental focus, performance
and fat loss when combined it with caffeine. And all four those singular amino acids will
be included in their study dosages in our brand new Muscle Amp pre-workout formula,
which is going to be launching sometime in mid-March. And you can get yourself on the
pre-launch VIP list for that using the link in the description box below to ensure that
you get your own supply when our first 500 bottles are released. And if you’re watching

  1. Which question have I ignored? I go to YouTube's dashboard to view all the comments that are posted and reply to as many as possible. Sometimes it doesn't list every one and I have 80 videos so I don't back and scroll through them all.

  2. Hey Sean, quick question here, I train a lot and have weights and all that stuff at home, but I am starting to get tired of the songs I am training to, which songs motivate you when training? Maybe you could make a Music list for strength training?

  3. hmm… it still seems like a foolproof way of getting essential aminos instead of making a science out of which meats and plant proteins i eat.

  4. Dude I would really like to read any thesis or investigation doc where individual aminoacids are being evaluated so I can inform myself not on a word of mouth basis, I thank you in advance.

  5. I prefer pills cause I had a gastric bypass and I have a hard time drinking big amounts of fluids. I eat every meal proteins but due to the small amounts I can't eat the daily recommendation. I take five pills before bedtime. Do you think it makes sense or Do you think it is a waste of money? I hate protein shakes they make me stick to my stomach. I've read that for efficiency I should eat simple carbs before taking the aa in order to make them work. Is that true?

  6. This was not the question you idiot ….. Are Amino Acid Supplements Effective? … you talked about meals and normal protein … ur an idiot …. Rename this video dumbass . .. . .  So YES …. Amino acids are Effective … YES … dumbass …. 

  7. BCAA"s seem to help with losing strength in my legs when I do cardio. Other than that I don't take any supplements 

  8.  i was planning to buy amino  acid supplements now by this video it helped me to decide what to do and which to buy….

  9. Juz nw i bought amino acid 2222 …can u plz telme in short hw it helps nd if nt den can u give sm suggestion fo gaining wheat …along with amino acid m takin serious mass nd creatine too …

  10. First I must say that you are the most reliable guy that I know when it comes science of bodybuilding, you're amazing.

    Just to ask, I am currently taking Modern BCAA Plus by USPlabs, together with ON 100%Whey, Dymatize Micronized Creatine, and Kirkland Fish Oil, are they too much or I just have to replace my BCAA and ON WHEY with Hydrolized Whey (preferably Dymatize ISO WHEY)?

    Thank very much for the information you share on your videos as well as your website 😀

  11. hi sean.. i m a underweight guy height is 5'9 and weight is 57 kg.. i m confuse which supplements should i take to gain mass n muscles.. pls advise some thing for me.. it should i take why protien with amino acid tablet or just mega mass protien..

  12. thanks. i subscribed . can i supposed to know that where should i take Amino acid capsules? before , during or after workout?

  13. I started to take ON Amino 2222 Tabs again. I think this is working for me better than the MASS Shake. Is it okay to take 8 Tabs per day if you workout? 2 before and after workout, and the other 4 in between meals?

  14. +sean nalewanyj for me i just get to stick on the supplements based that youve suggest in your other video for the bulking supplementation which are whey protein + creatine monohydrate + multi vitamins + fish oils and i think it is definetly worth it and saved a tons of money ..

  15. Should I take BCAA before Cardio? I cardio 40 minutes after weight traing.

    But I Drink Whey Protein 1- 1.5 Scoop after weight training.

  16. I do Intermitent fasting and do 1 hour cardio 2 days a week fasted right before my first meal. It looks like this – i fast from 00:00 am to 16:00 pm and if i do cardio i do it from 15:00 to 16:00. So the question is do i need BCAAS while doing the fasted cardio or no since i eat my first meal like 10/15 minutes after the cardio is over. Thanks in advence for the answer

  17. Good to see somebody is talking serious about amino acids.

    Hi Sean i have got a simple question for you regarding amino acids mate.While using aminos can i have my protein shake post work out?

  18. how many tablet's of amino to take daily i mean without the marketing stunts. hope you reply coz. i just bought creatine and amino 2222 tablets no protein. just wanna eat a lot and see how it goes. you have been always truthful for us giving us the lowest cost way to spend our products and thank you for that 🙂 bless you

  19. Yes, I too am guilty of jumping through diet plan to others as well, I think that I need to have tried every single weight-loss program that was available, however eventually not one of them helped me to shed and maintain the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time with the Fenoboci Diet Plan mainly because my friend who told me great things about it and so far to date I have effectively lost 17 lbs within 4 weeks!

  20. Don’t understand the need for 2 different L carnatines what would be the better of the two? Also I strongly recommend citruline malate 8g and creatine 5g of course.
