NGT: What do linemen eat/lift?

Les in TO : 8/11/2017 2:11 pm
I'm amazed at the size of offensive and defensive linemen today.

for those who have played or been close to the game, what kind of diet and lifting regimen do these linemen follow to bulk up?

I recently read an article about Russell Wilson's new nutrition program, where he consumes about 4,800 calories daily (no gluten or dairy) and can only imagine how many calories a guy like ereck flowers consumes in a day.
HGH

I think that genes have more to do with it than diet and exercise

By the looks of them, very few OL are paying attention to the diet other than eating a ton of calories, and working through powerlifting regimens.
A good fitting shirt and skinny jeans go a long way!

No way 310. I'd say 220 max.

LOL, yeah this shirt is so baggy it's what makes him look 310 pounds as opposed to the other picture where he looks like he's 200 pounds maybe.

Chris Snee is half the man he used to be (unintentional rhyme).

I have a buddy that I used to run with that was the starting OC at U of Montana for all 4 years of college. Said he would sometimes come home, order a large pizza or two and easily take it all down to keep his weight above 300 lbs...after college he went to law school and started running and eating normal and lost 100 lbs and turned himself into a sub-3 hour marathoner.
Massive amounts of calories, massive amounts of lifting.
