Keeping Gains When Ill



much like trailblazer's previous post, but im looking at probably not being able to train for a couple of weeks I expect?! but yeh, is the key jus to keep the protein intake up high?! how can i maintain my gains in this time off period....



A couple of weeks is not that bad. Just keep your protein intake up, and you should be able to minimise loss.


Its important to keep fluid intake high and besides protein a good calorific intake is paramount. If you don't feel like chowing down loads of food, up the intake calorie wise by eating more healthy fats, coldwater fish, nuts, avadacos, EV Olive oil etc.
