Let’s talk about carb loading.  It is essential that when looking to put on size you don’t just include protein.  You can take all the protein you want, and all that will come of it is you getting a little stronger, while staying the same weight.  Taking in carbohydrates is where your size comes from.  One of your more efficient carbohydrate meals would be sweet potatoes.  They have 100 grams of carbs per potato, and they’re cheap !  Plenty of rest, and clean carbohydrates are the 2 main sources of helping muscle growth.

TIP OF THE WEEK:  Taking liquid carbs after an intense workout is more sufficient than just taking in protein.  Carbohydrates help put on mass, protein helps put on muscle !
