2. Weights - Go heavy or go home. You should be aiming for 8 rep max range. Switch it up between 6 rep max to 10 rep max intermittently.

3. Rest - With the huge eating and huge training you need more rest than normal people. Aim for 8-9 hours sleep a day. Heck, nap during the day if you can.

These are very rough guidelines but seem to work well for me

Cheers.

Can't get simpler than that.
