Even though I am trying to bulk up I still include cardio in my workout regimine. It helps me build my wind which in turns help me breath when I lift weights which therefore helps me to build and maintain muscle.

My advice would be to hit no cardio to little & then only moderate at 20mins a session.

I switched from running & light weights to just big lifts with no cardio at all & the gains have been amazing. I would advise not to hit any cardio, if your looking to gain as much weight as possible then you shouldn't want to burn any. Yes it's good to keep the fitness topped up but as its winter you can worry over cardio in a few months

That's what I'm unsure of, I have no o e I can ask directly so I'm reading up alot and there's an awful lot of conjecture, I've fallen on the view that if your maintaining the muscle mass you already have then cardio is fine but never straight after lifting. But you can do the two seperTly at different times of the day, but if your trying to gain mass and especially if your trying to gain a significant ammount then cardios a no no. Please put me right if this is false.

My brother in law is a bodybuilder and he does very little cardio but when he does it's usually the stairmaster.

I personally like cardio but I'm female so I feel like I need it to stay trim.
