I just began my first year in college, I am throwing discus for a D1 school. We have throwing practice everyday and weight lifting 3 times a week. All I need to worry about now is school and eating.
I’m not rly concered about size. I’m focused on pure strength at this point, specifically in improving my bench, squat and clean, along with getting more explosive.
College food isnt the best choice, especially since I’m in the 25% bf range but its the majority of what I have to work with besides protein shakes, tuna and eating patties from the local burger joint.
My question is, what should my diet be like for me to keep gaining strength? It’s hard to get specific marcos down but I’m shooting for…
Veggies with every meal and 1-1.25 grams of protein per lb of LBM.
Other than that, I just eat what I can.
So I’m asking, is that enough protein for strength improvement and is there more related advise?
