need to gain 1 lb or less

Post by ddwil » Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:14 am

KGB, I have a barrow weighing 246 with 15 days to go until weigh in and want him to gain 1 lb per day(less than that would be best) for the next 11 days, and then the week of weigh in add paylean to his ration. My target weight at weigh in is 265 and I am figuring on somewhere around 7-8 pounds of shrink? for move in and water loss? He has good crisp shape and I want to keep it and then make it pop again with paylean the last 5 days. I was thinking of a ration of 2 lbs of fitter 52 and 2 lbs of powerfill per day to achieve this. Thoughts?

He will gain more than 1 lb per day on that diet. Reduce the Fitter 52 to 1 lb per day and you will be ok.
