This article is an opinion piece, and does not necessarily reflect the views of Supplement Centre.

Everyone is insulted about pretty much everything these days.

I have always used a BCAA supplement, be it through capsules or powder, they are always a part of my performance nutrition, and I will be using Matrix Amino Storm again.

When I am purchasing a BCAA supplement, I look for several things, pricing (and with that in mind, servings per container), how well it mixes, taste and of course the results.

As a society we have become obsessed with “burning” them, and have come up with many creative sports which do just that as a purpose, or in the case of Boxing Chess, do it as a by-product.

But what activities burn the most?
