lobouring job on buildingsite- advice?

Hi, got a new job on a buildingsite labouing, just wondered if anyone has any advice on making sure my weight stays on... and to hopefully gain mass.

even if im lifting heavy stuff at work is it still productive for me to weight train 2-3 times a week like i have been doing?

    Yes, I believe so.

    You may want to up your food intake though.

    im already pretty maxxed out with the eating with bulking diet from this website, would a couple of mars bars before bed be a good idea just to whack up the calories to hit the the 4500 mark, or would all that sugar cause me to loose mass?

    I think somebody's been reading those 'men's lifestyle' mags, mars bars seem to be a staple of any bulking diet on those

    I am also a labourer on a large building site. I find it very helpful as a summer job as Im currently on a cut and it means I dont have to do as much cardio due to I get plently during work, which I get paid for! Love it.

    Thankyouplease

    Yes as I do also. It might be handy for yourself to look back on what you were doing throughout the day. If you were using a perticular muscle group while at work, maybe leave it out of your routine that night, or even go easy on that perticular area. Play around with tour routine and you will find something which will work for you.

    Thankyouplease

    am i right in thinking that its no good to just rely on the job to build muscles, but to make sure i shock the muscles into growth by still working out heavily 2-3 times a week?

    Correct

    If you are serious about it, Tupperware boxes will/should become your new best friend

    In the past i have taken around 4000cals to eat at work alone..that gets heavy man

    All the best

    hey mate i'm a scaffolder and today i pumped up over 600 boards and 100 20 ft tupes weighting 30kg, i was pooed , but i always train my 4 days and never use a hard day at work as an excuse , thats just negative thinking ??? mars at night is a **** idea and has no real benefits at all , if i have a very hard day i eat more in the day but still stop carb intake at 9 and then eat a big tin of salmon on dark rye rivitas , lots of proteins and good oils .
