Greetings JJ here!

This is my first post.


I work as a janitor and I walk at least 7 hours a night and I als walk to work and the grocery store. I live in a very walkable area of my city. I walk everywhere.


How would this hurt me as it relates to gaining mass/muscle?


Thanks and look forward to being a active member.

It won't hurt you one iota.

Just factor in your activity levels while making up your diet.
If you've even made 1 up?


Furthermore, if you will be doing cardio, do not confuse manual labor, yard nor house work with cardio.
Its not the same.

^^^ This.

When I was a young bodybuilder I was an order picker in a warehouse. I walked and lifted heavy boxes nonstop from 7am to 3pm every day, with only two 20 minute breaks.

At the end of the day I'd go to the gym and work out for 2 more hours.

I made sure I ate enough. That was it.

Having the energy after walking all day will be the hard part... A good night sleep and appropriate diet will go a long way.

Great point but I work 2nd shift. I don't go in until 4pm. I could workout early in the morning before work and still have time to get a nice long nap in.
