    We need help to make people a "supplement expert"


    We are going to be putting out a test to get people on board with sports supplements. We are looking for people to submit questions that every "average" bodybuilder should know to be considered qualified to help others with supplements. Can you guys help us an post some questions that we can include in the test?

    Format is multiple choice like

    Fast absorbing proteins like Whey should best be consumed A) before a workout B) after a workout C) before bedtime

    Just be careful because there is so much conflicting research and opinion that a lot of these type of questions could be a better debate topic than multiple choice question. Questions like Rodja's are good, others may be:
    What are the three aminos that make up BCAA's?
    What is an ethyl ester?
    On what scale are antioxidants scored?
    What are two beneficial fatty acids in fish oil?
    How does Fish Oil differ from Flax Seed oil?
