During intense workouts, in particular anaerobic training such as weight training and interval training, the body secretes growth hormone from the pituitary gland. The amount of growth hormone released is dependent primarily on two factors, the first being the stress applied to the skeletal structure, where the most stress applied leads to higher growth hormone release. Compound multi-joined exercises would be at the top of that list. The other factor being the increasing of the intensity of the workouts, by increasing oxygen deprivation to the working muscle fibres with shorter rest periods. Growth hormone continues to be released into circulation up to 50 minutes after the workout is complete.
Whey protein has the ability to stimulate insulin release upon consumption. If whey protein is taken immediately post workout, the insulin spike resulting from it will shut down the growth hormone being released from the pituitary. This turns the body’s state from fat burning, to storing, since Insulin is a hormone that is used to store glucose, amino acids and even fat into muscle and then fat cells.
Taking BCAA's instead after a workout, prevents the insulin spike from occurring, and allows the growth hormone to continue its powerful metabolic effect. Whey protein can then be consumed after the 50 minutes period, to allow insulin to push the protein into the muscle tissue, allowing both hormones to be used to maximum effect
