How I Train, Eat and Recover as a Competitive Strongman
I like the vertical diet by Stan, and follow something similar. Four main meal per day works best for me and 2-4 small meals depending on if its training day or off training. I like a lot of rice, it’s a great carb and I switch between brown and white.
