I am currently bulking and trying to gain some significant muscle mass and strength. I know that in order to gain weight you must eat a calorie surplus, simple enough. However, my question is what are the effects of not meeting your calorie goal on a training day? Heres a hypothetical situation.
My calorie goal is 4000 calories per day. I train on monday and only get around 3800 calories. However I have tuesday off and get in 4500 calories. My question is will my muscle gains be the same by getting the same amount of calories split between the two days, but less on the training day? I know this is a weird question so if any further explanation is needed let me know.
Oh and I’m not freaking out and overanalyzing this. I was just thinking about it and didn’t have an answer, so I figured someone on here would.
