Default Does walking interfere with muscle gain?

I walk a lot everyday, averaging 10k steps. Some of this is walking to and from the gym. I was listening to a podcast and the person said, even walking for an hour after a weight training session blunts Muscle protein synthesis. I don't walk for an hour, more like 20 minutes. Does this still have an effect or am I just being paranoid?

Get a wheelchair. Use it to travel to and from the gym. Preferably have somebody push you, or get an electric one.

I reckon 10K won't interfere with much

Mabye if you have a great legs session when in a surplus trying to grow, it would be good to try and minimise the walking after

Like if you had s great legs session in the morning and went on a 20 000 step maybe that's not so optimal.

I call it the 3 step program:

1: You intend a surplus

2: Too much activity is limiting your surplus

3: Eat more in order to increase the surplus

Don't forget walking around the gym as well. Every step counts.

They key is to have such a great squat workout that you simply can't walk anymore. Trust me I've been there. Legs turned into rubber for a while and couldn't even press the pedals in my car to drive home.

I'm moving to a double story house. I think walking up the steps might make me go catabolic. Advice???
