If you want to build lean muscle mass, recovery is crucial. When you train, you are breaking down muscle tissue, not building muscle. Proper rest and nutrients are essential if you are looking to maximize your gains. What kind of nutrients? Protein is the building block of muscle and amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Amino acids are the key macronutrient responsible for creating muscle, and branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are essential nutrients that stimulate the building of protein in muscle and can reduce muscle breakdown. For maximum muscle, you want an intra-workout supplement that delivers the goods – and Machine Fuel® from MTS Nutrition provides the optimal ratio of BCAAs to enhance recovery and reduce muscle breakdown.
Proven 2:1:1 Ratio of BCAAs
Marc “The Machine” Lobliner created the “intra-workout” category in 2004. His belief in the benefits of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) was so great that he traveled around the world educating individuals on the importance of BCAAs during training. Thereafter, a new, enormous category was born and several studies validating the importance of BCAAs during training surfaced. Adhering the most stringent quality control standards, Machine Fuel® combines the proven 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs to enhance recovery and reduce muscle breakdown with AgmaPure® for enhanced pump and protein assimilation, taurine for cellular hydration and coconut water powder to naturally replace electrolytes lost during training. The BCAAs in Machine Fuel® are derived from 100% VEGAN INSTAMINOS®.
Perfect Intra-Workout BCAA
Let’s take a look at the ingredients in Machine Fuel® that make it the perfect intra-workout BCAA supplement.
L-Leucine (3g) is deemed as the most important of the three BCAAs and positively affects muscle protein synthesis (Blomstrand et al., 2006), which aids in promoting new muscle growth. L-Leucine helps prevent the breakdown of muscle, or muscle wasting (atrophy/catabolism) itself.
L-Isoleucine (1.5g) has the ability to help the body recover from exercise and strenuous activity, and can also give the body an added boost of energy to improve stamina and endurance (Sharp et al., 2010).
L-Valine (1.5g) can also improve energy levels during exercise. And since L-Valine is one of the “big three” in terms of BCAAs, it’s needed to help promote recovery and muscle growth following resistance training. With the ability to help increase protein synthesis (Carunchio et al., 2010), L-Valine can help build stronger and larger muscle fibers.
Agmatine Sulfate (AgmaPure®) at 500mg is great for mental functioning such as stress management and mental clarity. It also has the ability to aid in increasing insulin response, which can improve body composition (Hwang et al., 2005); can reduce perceived pain, allowing you to push harder and longer during workouts (Keynan et al., 2010). Agmatine is a metabolite of L-Arginine, which is used in many pre-workout products to aid in providing a pump/vasodilation.
L-Taurine (1g) is known for controlling glucose levels (Nandhini et al., 2002), increasing fat oxidation (Rutherford et al., 2010) and improving physical performance (Balshaw et al., 2012).
Coconut Water Powder (2g) helps meet the demands put on the body during strenuous activity, which deplete the body of vital nutrients. Coconut water powder is able to replenish lost micronutrients such as potassium, sodium and chloride (Chavalittamrong et al., 1982). When added to a post-workout nutrition program, coconut water is able to aid in rehydration (Ismail et al., 2007) and provide the body with lost electrolytes.

Intra-workout BCAA Nutrition: ‘The next big thing.’
“I knew the power of intra-workout nutrition with the proven BCAA ratio of 2:1:1 leucine:isoleucine:valine when I first tried it. I knew it would be the next big thing in the sport nutrition industry. So I set out relentlessly to educate the world on this miraculous yet basic supplement. Years later, it is still a growing category and with MTS Nutrition Machine Fuel, I had a chance to improve upon an already amazing category. Machine Fuel is my choice for intra-workout BCAA supplementation and if anyone knows intra-workout supplementation, it’s me.”
