Hey, probably a majorly nooby question.
So I get that adequate nutrition is central to making any real progress with strength/ size gains. To summarize my current situation, I’m headed down what could be a very unstable freelance career path for at least the next 3-4 years. Lack of funds will probably restrict a lot of my training to calisthenics (pressups, chinups, pistol squats etc.) and I imagine the diet will be dubious at best.
My question is, how much point is there training intensely- which as I understands breaks down the muscle- if I can’t always guarantee I’ll be repairing it with the right food? Is some resistance training always better than none (I’m a naturally skinny guy so I’d like to try and hold on to what little gains I have amassed over the years!), or am I simply better off biding my time until I can afford a more pro-fitness lifestyle?
Any input appreciated
