I gain muscle and fat very easily. But I can keep my fat minimal with veryy clean diet.
But I was wondering would running track restrict my calories too much and not have enough to get full gains, or would it be good.
Pros? Cons?
Would carrying around a bag of almonds/walnuts/sunflower seeds be enough?

To bodybuild you need to lift weights, sslight and occasional running is okay but if you do track you risk getting slim an lanky id know I'm a cross country runner

Bodybuilding as human body process can be very tough for heart,especially when we use big weights,and best medicine for it is running! Running is good for condition,healthy,good for vascularity and motoric,great for muscle building and fat shredding(sprint),it regulates metabolism etc ... Running is apsolutely great for every phase of bodybuilding,just you must choose right discipline.

Most bodybuilders, when doing cardio to keep weight down, stick to HIIT workouts of around 10mins. Sprint intervals is good for torching calories but maintaining muscle

You can run but it must be a long distance I  suggest   farlic training or 150mtr sprints over a time with a recovery time also that way your not breaking down your muscle but you are making it work hard ., the bigger you get the slower will become in yur track thts just a fact muscle weights more then fat :)

I do high school soccer and we run with the cross country and track teams, big and muscular doesn't always mean slow, a kid weighs 250lbs on the team and has a 4.9 40 meter dash. But over time your body will produce chemicals making you thinner but if you'd lift weights on every other day for instance you can maintain a good muscular build but still improve in running.

Woah there guys it's fine if you run track as long as your not doing long distance. I haven't seen any decrease in gains and I run the 100m/200m/400m and 4x1 on occasion
