    How to build mass while on tour with band?

    Hey guys,

    I'm 5'11 170 (kind of skinny fat, 28 yo), just started lifting heavy about a month ago, and am going to be on tour for the next two months.

    My ultimate goal is to get to a lean 175 (so probably a bulk to 180-185 and then a cut?) and then maintain.

    My question is, if I'm going to be on the road, is there any way to continue building mass with minimal access to a gym, or should I just cut on the road and bulk when I'm home?

    Im very regimented with food but on the road I'd pretty much need to rely on mass gainers because eating is unpredictable.

    Thanks for any input you all have!

    Travel around with a portable gym like the Rock.

    Lol.

    Seriously, what I would do is pre plan your travel plan and find gyms in the areas you will be staying. Have it all planned out before you go. Just like having the hotels planned out.

    I would just do an internet search to see gyms in the areas and see what you’d have to do to be able to train there. Maybe even call there and explain your situation to them. See if you can get day passes or what you have to do.
    - Your mindset influences your outcome. It's time to take out phrases like "I can't" or "I don't have time" and replace them with phrases like "I will make the time" and "I will keep working at it until I find a way that works." Success starts with the right mindset and believing in yourself and your dreams.

    This. ^^^ It's good advice. Works the same for professionals who travel a lot. It can be done. Not always the best, but it can work.

    Good luck, OP.

    Awesome, appreciate the advice, thank you guys.

    If our schedule is a little unpredictable (like when we'd be leaving certain places, etc), and I can only get to the gym say, 3 days a week instead of the 5-6 I've been doing, does that change things?

    Unless you accept that you can't get to a gym when you want and do this instead https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004XIZN...ng=UTF8&btkr=1
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
    Diet restarted, target 69.x Kg, progress poor so far :(

    If you don't think you can commit to 4-5 days then you could do a 3 day full body.

    I travelled the entire east coast of australia for about 2 months and was worried about losing muscle, managed to just use google to find local gyms for any village/town i went to, some of the most rural towns had gyms, finding a gym wasn't an issue for me so probably not for you! Eating enough will be more of a challenge and to be completely honest, you may need to save up a bit to buy ready made food rather thank making it on the road but if you have the facilities you are lucky!

    YOu should write to Henry Rollins and ask how he did it. Seriously. He might just reply.

    Good point. I live in a small town in the south (US) with a population of about 1000 people. We have a well stocked 24 hour gym.
