    Ok ima very experienced lifter but I'm in the military and just transferred to a new base and there all about PT- 5 days a week usually a 2-3 mile run every single day. I go hit my workout in the gym every morning before work, then I gotta go do the bull**** PT were required to do. I'm curious in everyone's thoughts about how I can retain my muscle mass from lifting but also Havin to Run 2-3 miles a day after my lifts in the morning? Should I just keep my calorie intake high? Clean of course, comments please

    yea keep your calories very high. cortisol levels are your enemy here because a 2-3 mile run will hike them way up there. you can invest in some cort blockers if you have to. sports drinks some simple carbs will help fight off cort levels too. you can also spike your insulin after the run.

    I'm in the 82nd ABN bro. We get our 4-5 miles a day so I feel your pain. You just have to keep the calorie intake higher than your used to so that you can recover from both workouts. You'll get used it in time bro.

    Idk bro, there are a lot of variables there that could change that. To me that sounds OK because I'm only ~170 and I take in close to 4000 right now trying to gain.
