gotta eat a lot more than that if that's how many cals you burned.

yeah i have always had this question.. by the end of the day you should end up with.. say i am eating 3000 calories to bulk up.. but i burned off half of that.. do i have to eat and restore those calories by the end of the day in order for bulking?

well everyone has a resting metabolic rate, which is how many calories your body burns on its own just to survive. there are many calculators that take weight, height, age, etc. into account. you can try this one:

once you find that, add the calories you burned to that to get your maintenance. if you want to bulk, add ~300 calories to your maintenance.

so, for example, say your RMR is 2000cals and you burned ~2100 calories exercising. you will need to eat more than 4100 calories/day to put on weight.

I think you should consider your length of rest periods between sets before you put down 90 minutes... plus baseball is generally a lazy game, 1200+ cals? i really don't think so..

but if you do believe you burned that amount, use this calculator to calculate your RMR, then add whatever calories you burned in the day and factor in the bulking surplus to get what you should eat.
