For the kids…
After many years of training, detraining, and retraining, I have finally begun to eat an adequate amount of protein. This idea has been promoted on this site and all over so it is nothing new. I eat food so it can be hard for me to consume 400 to 500 grams of protein but I do get between 250 and 350 grams of protein and it makes a big difference in my strength.
I have never regained so much strength so quickly as I have after my most recent layoff. I am lifting really no different than ever but I am eating more protein and I am quick approaching strength pr’s at 40 lbs less body weight. So kids, anyone under the age of 34 who is not feeding themselves enough, start eating your protes!
If I only knew this 15 years ago.
