Overtraining Recovery Stack

5-10 grams of BCAAs

1 gram of lysine

Before and after workouts, along with your pre-and post-workout protein shakes.

BCAAs will jumpstart protein synthesis when combined with 20 grams of whey or egg. If doing a plant source protein, then opt for at least 40 grams.

Lysine is critical for calcium absorption, carnitine production, immune support and muscle building.
