I agree 95% about not needing BCAA supplements!  Protein is far better!  But athletes need no more than 1.6 grams of protein / Kg body weight, although even this high amount is debated by experts.  But the argument is moot, because I have never observed a male athlete’s protein intake that was less than 1.6 grams of protein / Kg body weight when they were training.
