    Warehouse and gains

    Job switched to a warehouse that pays OK. But very butt hurt about it. 10 hour shifts, picking items from warehouse shelves on to pickers, a means to an end as I want to move back home to New England and outta the mid west.

    Anyway back to the point 10 hour shifts of picking items has completely crashed my gains even with copious eating and relentless shakes and snacks. Depressing because it is slowly eating away at me. Am I going catabolic after the 5th hour?

    Not if you eat enough calories.

    I've got 99 problems......but my squat/dead ain't one !!

    It doesnt matter how good looking she is, some where, some one is tired of her shit.

    Light travels faster then sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    Great place to start researching ! http://forums.steroid.com/anabolic-s...-database.html

    I wouldn't think you would be in a catabolic state if your heart rate wasn't around 130 or so. Like bg said, if your getting the right amount of calories, you'll burn them and not muscle

    What they said. Learn some high calorie recipes that go well with your taste buds and your stomach.

    Home made protein bars based on peanut butter aren't bad. I make mine with dates, peanut butter, chocolate protein powder, ground flaxseed, oats, flaxseed oil. The dates and peanut butter make it all hold. The protein powder is what makes it taste well together. The oats make a crunchy consistency. The oil adds very healthy fats and makes it crumble less. No cooking required.

    New England is the best England. Why wouldn't you want to come back? I would move to Maine if there were any decent jobs up there.

    Thanks!
    don't think I can stuff anymore food in my gullet here it is.

    Scoop of protein upon waking up

    3 cups cinnamon toasters with whole milk
    Two or three scoops protein Greek yogurt
    720-890 cal

    10 ounces brown rice
    10 ounces chicken breast (lemon garlic coated with flour I just couldn't do it in seasoned anymore I literally cried one time)
    Veggies
    700ish cals with veggies

    8 ounces sweet potato
    1 cup white rice
    12 ounces flank steak (or 10 ounce lemon garlic chicken breast)
    685-785 cal

    Most days I can fit in a forth meal. It's usually the sweet potato and white rice. If I don't it's usually either tiredness/going to bed. Big ass PPJ sandwich with Greek yogurt and milk before bed?

    Between meals
    Two scoops of protein with two green apples. Days off it'll be one apple or a glass of milk
    Work days: 400 calories
    Off days 290 calories

    That's about 2900-3500 a day. Shit yeah dipping under 3000 is probably 70% of my problem fuck. Fuck, need to revise my diet. I regret skipping the fourth meals.

    Gym time. High weight super low rep as to not fuck myself up before work?

    Maine, that sounds terrible! I went to new Hampshire one time visiting inlaws, I couldn't wait to get back to south ga. Of course, the inlaws may have been the problem!

    Try adding a protein bar or a shake, just make sure there is real food in either and not just made of sugars like commercial weight gainers and most commercial protein bars.

    Don't miss the fourth meal.

    Add a tbsp of olive oil or flaxseed oil to every meal. 120 calories per tbsp. Over 4 meals thats 480 cals, 5 meals 600 cals.

    Look for a better job. Construction jobs in the Midwest are paying very well now due to lack of workers. Tons of jobs in the pipeline business.

    Take a cooler with you to work and put in chicken. A guy that trains for a comp eats all the time during his 10-hour shift as an operator. His nickname is lunchbox due to it's a cooler that has a couple of lunch boxes in them.

    Agreed with the above post.Jobs are everywhere if you just look. Even without experience show your competent and dress to impress,shake hands etc .
    As far as calories go,
    heavy whipping cream is an all natural source of 1600 cals per container.
    I am on a keto bulk and it has worked great so far. Just throwing that out there.

    If your lean you could def start burning off muscle..its tough to hold on to for a guy whos working a normal job..I worked a very physical job a few years ago and had to almost non stop snack to keep up..bananas and fruit are good to have on the go will keep your energy and glycogen up, shakes and easy to digest sources of protein..almonds and jerky also work in a pinch..eat your regular meals figure out how many calories you burn base and how many you burn working and adjust accordingly..
