On top of my lifting, I live a pretty active lifestyle. I have to do a lot of walking every day- a LOT of walking (due to a number of reasons- e.g. getting to class/ gym/ shops etc. without any other form of transport, etc.) Usually it can be up to 4 hours straight walking a day, every day (not including the time I spend in and around the places I gotta be.)
It’s also at a quick pace, averaging around 140+ steps a minute (about 4.5mph,) and it does get me breathing heavy and sweating, especially because much of it is uphill. And all this is walking that I HAVE to do. On days that I’m at the gym, you can add another 90 minutes of physical exercise on top of it as well.
I also work a few hours a night in a bar, pulling drinks, so literally I am on my feet all day. Is all this likely to be really hurting my gains or my progress, if I keep my calorie intake high? My legs are constantly shattered, and it’s hard to give them any decent sort of a workout because of this as well- I know rest is important for recovery, but I don’t really get the chance to properly give my legs a decent rest… What do you guys think??
