Dave’s Heavy Hittin’ MASS GAINING Nutrition Plan: Daily Blueprint

Posted by VPX Sports on Oct 12, 2014 10:01:00 AM


** I eat 4000-5000 calories per day before a big race adding fuel and gaining size, 3000-4000 calories per day on normal (non-race prep) days. I weigh 235lbs now. The following Meals & Snacks are spaced out 2-3 hours all day from waking to bedtime.

** To GAIN muscle MASS you need to at least be eating 10 calories per pound of desired body weight at the minimum so if you want to be 210lbs ripped, and that’s fair and logical for your bodytype and frame, then you need to eat at least 200x10 = 2100 calories daily spread out throughout all 7 meals/snacks below.
