Hey all,

I've ben gaining weight and lifting heavier as time goes- I've been on 5x5 and visiting the gym 3-4 times weekly since August. I've increased my food intake also.

But I notice that my waist has expanded- which is not a big problem, but I feel I've got more fats around the back of my hips. I'm thinking of jogging again to keep it in check, as well as watching my diet more carefully.

But how many times a week should I jog? Kind of not sure as I don't want to loose my strength at the gym too. Any advice?

Thanks.

If you're worried about strength gains just keep a close eye on your training log to see the effect cardio is having on your gains. If it doesn't work out try a different type of cardio, or reduce/drop it. Worth a shot though

Your card isn't going to effect your strength unless you are overdoing it so please don't worry about that. Put aside at least 3.5 hours a week for cardio and make sure that you do high rep ab exercises and you will start to see your waste shrink.
