We discussed this before sometime, think Jeremy and I did. I think you want acute acidity during your workout - appears to increase a lot of growth factors. So I highly question adding buffers around your workout, like sodium bicarbonate.
But otherwise, acidity chronically may lower protein synthesis. Garlick, my mentor did the research on this. He basically told me just eat your leafy greens! So that's my advise. And don't do something stupid like consume 500 grams of protein like many bodybuilders do today.
