I’m new to this, been lurking for a while but never turned to posting.
I’m a professional sportsman based in the UK, playing in a high collision sport and conditioned by a team of Paleo-preaching coaches.
I have been eating in accordance with the Paleo diet for 2 seasons now and have seen significant improvements in body composition.
However, while in intensive training programs, although I make significant strength gains I struggle to put on what is essentially MASS. ( Lean mass, of course). Also, any muscle hypertrophy is well…non existent. BUT, I do feel stronger, quicker, more explosive which is obviously most important. Yet, in a sport where perception is hugely influential in coaching decisions, a handful of extra Kg’s would be hugely appreciated.
Interested to hear your thoughts!
