Calories are necessary to sustain life; everything outside of that statement is 100% theoretical. Nothing irritates me more than the absolute certainty and arrogance pundits engage in when discussing bodybuilding nutrition.
Overview Back in the summer of 2013, Animal sent me on a special mission. They challenged me to stretch a limited budget as far as possible and put together a bodybuilding diet using only $50—for an entire week's worth of food.
With a legacy that harkens back to a golden era in our sport, but the dark ages of bodybuilding supplementation, Animal Pak has endured for generations. And for good reason. It works. And it has worked for more than thirty years. Making the cut into the nutritional programs of Olympia competitors, world record-holding powerlifters and hardcore strength athletes of all walks of life.
Once you have dropped the last dumbbell in the gym, it is time to head home and pick up another set of iron tools ? the fork and the knife. There is much more to successful physique enhancement than just a daily 90 minute training session. In order to allow your body to grow, you have to feed it the right nutrients and the right amounts. Otherwise, you will either end up looking like a skinny twig or, even worse, the marshmallow man.
Training is the fucking easy part. The further along you come in your development; you’ll find ways of becoming more efficient and generating greater intensity. Focused and motivated, you’ll rip through your workout like a rabid wolverine frothing at the mouth and be slumped in your whip driving home in less than an hour.
So by this time you get the 411 on protein loud and clear. It honestly shouldn't have taken me to do it, as I know every inch of every page of your favorite bodybuilding mag or online forum has driven the protein message through your thick skull by now.
