8,000 calories and two gallons of water a day fueled T.J. Watt’s offseason work

Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt had a good rookie season last year, but he’s working hard — and eating hard — at improving in his second year.
Watt’s trainer told ESPN that Watt eats 8,000 calories a day and drinks two gallons of water a day to get him through the grueling workouts he’s been doing back home in Wisconsin, and his only focus in the offseason has been getting better.

“I’ve got a boring lifestyle. I’m not about any of that [other] stuff,” Watt said. “I work out, I go home, I grill burgers and hang out by myself or hang out with a few of the guys on the team. I’m not here for anything else but football.”
The Steelers hope Watt’s big appetite fuels a big season.

I understand how difficult it can be to add even a few pounds of muscle at that level....but 8000 calories a day? Unless he's seriously overtraining, that should work out to adding a good 4-5 pounds of fat PER WEEK.

Some people must just not absorb/store calories like other people do.

At least he isn’t following the Lamar “Holly” Woodley off season routine.

"At least he isn’t following the Lamar “Holly” Woodley off season routine."

Are you referring to that vid with him doing straight leg raises to 45 degrees that would get him expelled from aquarobics at the senior center?

I mean, it has to be some sort of super conditioning program, right? My guess is Watt has a maintenance calorie of maybe 4000 a day....That difference vs. 8000 calories is like a 13-mile jog a day.

And that's the diet dictated by the progam director. Don't really understand it.
