SS x 1 week x 1 GOMD = 10.5 lbs !!!

I just finished my first week of SS, and drinking a gallon of milk a day and I'm amazing at the weight gain. I'm up 10.5 lbs (goal is probably about 30 lbs) in just a week.
I feel great, my shirts fit better, and my jeans/pants fit exactly the same .
Thanks for all the great info, and support.
Almost forgot I went for 169 to 179.5, I'm 6'4", and my goal is around 200 while staying below 10% BF.

Congrats. That is a huge jump. I'm starting to get to the point now where my thighs are so big i can't fit into my boxers or old pants anymore. Expect to possibly buy more boxers or any pants that are already somewhat tight. You get some huge thighs from squatting.

Yeah, I had to buy new boxers and shirts after running SS for a few months. I'm back on it, and fear I might have to buy more, though this run through I'm not doing the milk.

32, and I've always been skinny. The biggest I've ever gotten was 193 when I was 24. I was doing a Dinosaur Training based workout and it took me about 3 or 4 months to get to that size, and I was eating about 4k calories a day.

I changed over to the WODs, and kept the gallon of milk a day. I'm now up 18 lbs, and my bodyfat is exactly the same as it was before, 8%.

Re: SS x 1 week x 1 GOMD = 10.5 lbs !!!

I'm curious. I understand that the strength gains are huge and time and time again SS has been shown to work. (Although I haven't read it) But...

How does the Gallon of Milk (Doesn't Coach Rip say Whole milk??) fit into the zone parameters?? Or, do you follow the zone, but drink the milk on top of that?

I know the question is borderline Nutrition (Lynne...Sorry) But I just wanted to hear from some people had had been following SS.

Frederick,
No offense, but your question has been asked here many times.

To save you the time there are a few things you can do. Not worry about The Zone, eat a ton, lots of protein and a gallon of milk.

Or you can eat your normal block allotment... and a gallon of milk.

Rip suggest a gallon of whole milk/day because there is nothing else that has the right amounts of protein-carbs-fats that whole milk does. Not to mention that there's about 3500 calories/gallon... you don't have a choice but to grow.

I'd suggest ditching The Zone, eat a ton and drinking the milk.

With the gallon of milk, you can continue doing your regular Zone prescription. Either way you'll be getting plenty of calories. Whole milk is just about perfectly Zoned in and of itself.

How long have you been back on the WODs? You gained the extra 8lbs while just doing the WODs and milk?
