Brandon Lloyd Training Camp Journal is back and, you know what, in spite of how things went with Lloyd in '06, I'm happy to have him back for this. I like player Training Camp Journals. They entertain me. Especially this one, where Brandon Lloyd informs us that he is "not a big eater". Despite this handicap, he went to Arizona this offseason and put on ~10 pounds, and kept it on. Here's how:
My breakfast would consist of a 16-ounce T-bone steak and 10 egg whites. That would be the meal I'd eat before I'd train.
Right after I'd train, I'd eat two chicken breasts and 8-10 egg whites.
After that I'd eat fish-maybe 12 ounces of Ahi Tuna, broccoli and a baked potato.
My fourth meal would be chicken, broccoli, and a baked potato.
My fifth meal would be a lamb chop or rack of lamb.
And finally my sixth meal would be fish again.
The tough thing about eating like that is if I ate my breakfast too late or if I didn't eat my in-between meals in time, then I'd be up late trying to finish eating. Seriously -- there were a few nights when I'd fall asleep on the couch while trying to catch up with my eating.
I don't want to get to optimistic this year over minutiae such as the above, but I do like Brandon Lloyd's added size. Admitting that my observation could be wrong, one thing I remember Lloyd struggling with last year was separation from defenders. He'll have some added size and muscle now to get that job done -- at 200 lbs he'll compare favorably to many of the CBs he's facing -- and will allow him to kind of sort of maybe fill that posession receiver role we so desparately need. He's also not a short receiver, though 6 feet isn't going to turn any heads, either.
Question: If topical creams advertised to increase one's, uhhh, size, are to be believed [ED Note: not that I would know about such advertisements, as I certainly would not be reading those kinds of magazines, rather I simply get the same random spam email that you all must], then wouldn't they also make your hands grow when you apply the cream to, uhhh, the area's you want to grow? I only ask because I'm short, as in my height you pervs, and couldn't I just rub topical growth cream all over my body to get taller? The point being: couldn't we just create tall, posession receivers with growth creams?
