Bryson DeChambeau vowed to ‘achieve a whole other level of strength’ during his three-month offseason from LIV Golf… but insists he will NOT repeat his 50-pound weight gain in 2019 by eating 3,500 calories every DAY
Bryson DeChambeau plans to use LIV Golf’s three-month offseason to gain ‘a whole other level of strength,’ but it won’t go through as drastic a change as he did two years ago when he reached 240 pounds.
The American gained 50 pounds in under a year between 2019 and 2020, helping him significantly increase his driving distance and win the 2020 US Open.
Now DeChambeau, who sits at 215 pounds, is looking at another weight increase without some of the pitfalls of his previous approach.

‘I’m going to take a long time, but in a healthy way this time,’ DeChambeau told GolfDigest.
I’m excited about that. The last time I did it, I put on a lot of fat,’ she says.
‘What I want to do is stay lean but gain two to three pounds of muscle by really working hard and getting to another level of strength.’
The golfer revealed in 2020 that he was eating a staggering 3,500 calories a day to achieve the transformation, downing six to seven protein shakes per day on average.

He also said at the time he was eating four eggs, five pieces of bacon and some toast for breakfast.
The 29-year-old now says he wants to increase his weight to 225 before the first LIV event in 2023.
LIV’s 2023 season is tentatively scheduled to begin in Florida in February.
