Post workout supplementation question.

I was thinking recently if taking a whack of BCAA/EAA post workout would be better than whey. Since BCAA/EAA are absorbed quicker than whey protein.

Also I'm already consuming around 200-215g protein at 150 lb bodyweight a day and wasn't sure if they whey post workout would make a huge difference since I'm already getting a lot through 30-35oz of meat a day.

I've been taking whey post workout for awhile, so I'm just curious to everyones opinions on whether or not it makes a difference.

i train at 10am, usually finish around 11:30 and get lunch by 12:30. If i were to just shoot 10g bcaa/eaa post workout would it be enough if i were to get a mea an hour after or would the whey help.

goals: I'm looking to put on muscle and wasn't sure if the total days calories/macros is what would help most or harnessing the post workout window.

Not sure whether "speed" in that sense makes a difference. That should be taken care of by the pre-workout shake anyways.

Also not sure if super-dosing BCAAs makes a noticeable difference (and it would have to be a superdose, for somebody consuming adequate protein, 10g makes no big difference).
