“165 Coach?!?!” “Yes…165lb to 168lb”“Well how am I suppose to do that ?!?!? I have been trying for years to gain weight…”“Eat!!! Eat In and Out at least 3 times a week and none of that Protein Style bull” Ha :).
After years of “trying” to gain weight, I finally did it! I have gain 12 pounds since I started training this year and I am pretty damn proud of myself.
For years, I “tried” to gain weight. I when I say try, I mean that I would just eat what was on my plate and call it good. Maybe a few protein shakes during heavy lifting. To be honest I did not understand my body . I was scared that I would just gain fat and that it would affect my throw.
My focus for gaining the weight was just to eat more. Eat more of everything, add more fats to my diet and make sure that I had dessert after dinner. These ideas were not my own but my amazing strength coach’s, who every step of the way made sure that ate enough for the day.
I know it sounds silly but it sucked the first couple of weeks. I was not used to being that full or eating whatever I wanted. I also started drink 2 to 3 protein shakes a day, which I give a ton of credit to, for the weight gain.
Gaining these pounds has given me a new sense of what my body can do. My preconceived idea of weight gain, has been thrown out the window. I am excited to see how these extra pounds will convert to my throw.
The added bonus with these extra pounds is that I can pick up a few new/ bigger items from Oiselle. The large long sleeves now gotta go up a size. Gotta cover up these “guns” somehow :).
165 was to easy, lets see if I can get to 170:)
