Default Mass Article Question

This is in regards to the Mass nutrition training program laid out in issue 17, in specific on page 7 under the ”CLC: The Revenge” section. I understand it fully up to the calorie breakdown point when you have:
“123 blocks fat = 184 grams + 27 grams in protein = 1899 calories”I don’t understand where the 27 grams of protein comes in. All else makes sense and is a great article.

Oh and one more question, how does the training template coincide with the WOD? Is it meant to replace it during the 8 weeks?

Yes. If you want size, aka Mass, you cant be running around doing metcon work....unless you want to intake another 1200 calories a day in food. Best way to get the lbs on...do strength work, eat a ton, rest and recover. You can always come back to metabolic work and get that back in a heartbeat....size and strength however are harder, require more focus and are ideally done on their own.

adding the 27 for fat in protein is just adding in the additional fat blocks that are present in most natural sources of mean, eggs, etc.
