    On a bulk while running track?

    Track season started today, and I was wondering if I should change anything up with my bulk. I'm not even close to a cut yet, and I don't want to slow down/go backwards during track season. Should I just push to eat more food to make up for the calories I'm burning in track?

    Yes, if you plan to gain weight you're going to have to eat more food. Have fun.

    Why do you want to gain weight during track season? I don't know how difficult you're training regimen is but it was almost impossible for me to gain weight during track season. Generally, 3 weeks after track season eating the same amounts of food I gained around 10 pounds.

    Because I don't want to hold up my progress becauase of track. After the first two weeks of conditioning, my practices aren't nearly as exhausting, since I'm in field events, and run nothing further than 200 m. I'm curious as to how much more food I'm really gonna have to eat to keep up with the progress I've already had.

    i dont understand the benifits of bulking during your season.. your will have to eat ALOT in order the put on weight. and i would think extra weight gain would hurt your track performance a little especaily if your doing high or long jump

    what field events do you do? If you're running short distances, muscle definitely helps with speed. I guess because really pumping your arms helps your legs move, so a big upper body helps. At least that's why they had the sprinters lift when I was in high school. I say use fitday to figure out how many cals you are eating now. Running definitely burns a lot of calories, so you may need to increase the number of cals by at least a couple hundred.

    I don't really run track, but I remember last year I weighed 150 and we gauged my 40 at 5.22. This year I weigh around 170, and my 40 was about 4.89. Maybe conditioning in this year's wrestling practice helped, but that was about a month ago. I would attribute it to my weight gain.
