My younger cousin recently questioned why he couldn’t put on weight? He claimed he wanted to be able to bulk up 15 to 20 lbs by the time his high schools spring baseball season got underway. He said he’d been lifting weights and eating his peas and carrots. I laughed and told him that the weight lifting and veggie consumption was great but putting on that amount of weight in a few months takes some serious dedication and perhaps some protein supplementation.
Back when I was in high school and attempting to bulk up to get noticed by Emily Madison in my chemistry class I struggled to pack on the pounds. But that was prior to advances in modern science. I’ve found that supplementing your meals and weight lifting sessions with protein shakes is a great way to pack on the pounds.
The days of choking down 5 eggs are OVER! There are a number of products out there which contain 15 to 56 grams of protein, and the best part is they taste good. If you keep to your normal eating and weight lifting habits and can supplement your meals with 50 to 100 grams of additional protein, then you’ll be in great shape. Your body will react as though you’ve just eaten five full meals as opposed to the standard three.
By the time baseball season comes into full swing you’ll turn riding the pine into a fulltime spot in the infield. And if the rest of your game is as savvy as your nutritional habits we may be talking about rounding the base pads in a more figurative sense. If you get my drift….
