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.
