GOMAD for Strength

We covered GOMAD at some point in the past.  It stands for Gallon Of Milk A Day, and is recommended by some folks in the Mark Rippetoe “Starting Strength” camp as an effective way of fueling a strength training athlete looking to pack on muscle weight.

We just stumbled across this blog post from last year, where Sean from Calgary shares his experience with it.

The net result seems to have been an increase in muscle and strength at the expense of other GPP attributes.

It’s interesting to note that Sean didn’t CrossFit while on the GOMAD program.  We’d be interested to read about others who are experimenting with GOMAD plus CrossFit-style strenght and metcon work.
