thanks for the answers so far!
I think I will just look and see what kinds of high fat foods they sell there that I can bring.
Don't worry, I am not going to let this ruin my trip, if the gainz were that important to me I wouldn't do the trip in the first place I know what you mean though!
I just want to keep as much strength as I can, without putting too much effort into it. I can just imagine that it will be quite a big difference between bringing and not bringing extra food since one uses quite a lot of calories during those tracks.
After that I am going straight to Taipei for my exchange semester, with a gym on campus and stuff. I ll be able to hit the weights there better than ever
In general, if I only have access to weights for the reminder of the trip sporadically, what would you recommend doing on such a day? I usually train 5/3/1. Just work up to a fairly heavy weight on the squat than a few backup sets, same for BP and DL?
I tend to get incredibly sore after a lay off if I do too much on the first day. I haven't really found a good way to avoid that. But I don't want to be sore the whole time.
Does anyone know something about how muscle/strength loss really works? How much does it actually help to get a day of training in from time to time?
I am not really aware of any articles about that, so if anyone has a link, that would also be appreciated!
