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.

Pack Your Snacks - 10 Snacks Perfect for OCR

Posted by VPX Sports on May 4, 2014 10:01:00 AM

When I’m obstacle racing, the fuel I put in my body is just as important as the training that got me there. Whether a local event or in another state, I never like leaving my pre-race food to chance. Sure, the hotel has a buffet, the city has grocery stores, the airport has restaurants and the venue has food trucks, but it can be expensive and a bit of a gamble whether or not they will have exactly what I want. Not to mention it’s those kinds of little things that add up to big nerves on race day – or possibly even hinder performance!

The Importance of High Protein Diets in Patients with End Stage Kidney Disease on Dialysis

Posted by Team Xtreme on Oct 28, 2013 9:07:00 AM

In 2009 more than 871,000 people in the United States were being treated for End Stage Kidney Disease (ESRD).  Patients with ESRD have a few options; they can try to get a kidney transplant, go on dialysis, or choose to not be treated.  Dialysis is a method of filtering toxins in the body either using a dialysis machine, or using the body’s own peritoneal cavity.  Without dialysis or a transplant, the outcome for ESRD patients is very poor, so when faced with the decision, most choose dialysis.
