If you’ve seen recent pictures of Anthony Davis, it’s impossible to ignore his increased stature. Not long ago, he was lanky string-bean. He’s since transformed into a monster, poised to make a potential run for MVP, all thanks to a strenuous offseason workout and diet plan. If you want to find out more about his specific diet plan he followed then check out his diet plan/weight lifting plan on MyFitnessHub, a place for all celebrity workout plans & general diets.

If you’ve seen recent pictures of Anthony Davis, it’s impossible to ignore his increased stature.  Not long ago, he was lanky string-bean.  He’s since transformed into a monster, poised to make a potential run for MVP, all thanks to a strenuous offseason workout and diet plan.

Over eight weeks of working out in LA with new Pelicans strength coach, Jason Sumerlin, Davis has packed on 12 pounds while maintaining 10% body fat.  The primary reason he’s up to 253 pounds is a new diet, explained by Sumerlin to the Pelicans’ official website.

“I wanted Anthony to eat more than he does, actually, because that’s the only way to gain weight. You have to get more protein, more calories. He’s never going to cut out pizza, but I finally got him to eat seafood, for the first time ever. He had salmon. He also has a chef now, so he’s become more adventurous when it comes to food and his diet. Changing his diet is a huge thing and probably half the battle.”

The 2015 first team All-NBA selection was amazing in his third season, averaging 24.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game.  Despite the amazing output, Davis still has plenty of room to improve, most notably against bigger, stronger post-players who often out-muscled him.

Sumerlin already sees an improvement without having seen against an opponent, ““He’s going to be stronger, faster, quicker and more explosive this year,” said Sumerlin.  “He talks about it all the time.  He feels it.”

If he’s feeling it, I have a feeling we still haven’t seen the best from The Brow.
