You can easily simplify it & build up to something like this.

If your looking to build then a routine based around squats, deadlifts & benching should be the core of your workout :)

Keep it simple is the key

And yeah Sasquatch I have a good routine at the minute, building up the base strength with compounds and body weights then the big work kicks in

tuesday, wednesday, thursday 27km total, splitted in 2 party, (4,5km to get the gym and 4,5km to come back) and then 9km to get to the MA's gym and 9 come back. 18min to get to the first gym, 20-22min then.
In the evening I'm very tired and from the MA's gym to my home it usually takes 25-30min, due to the uphill road.

As long as you don't half kill your self on your bike I'm sure it'll be ok, I'm constantly walking with my job, upwards of ten miles a day but you should be fine

I find rowing intensly for NO MORE than 10mins two sessions a week while bulking good, as it is stimulating your muscles more than the stupid stair steppers, stationary bikes and all those pieces of crap. Plus it burns calories quite effectively.

Well, cardio doesn't help build muscle for the most part, and too much will start to eat into your gains (and also require you to eat more to keep balanced so as to still be able to gain mass and not go into a caloric deficit.) Usually, if you're trying to gain mass, keep the cardio low in time and intensity such as 30 minutes or less of walking with your heart rate around 65% of max (or, REALLY short in time if you're doing high-intensity cardio, like 10 minutes of sprint intervals for 30 seconds or something similar), and you'll be fine. You just don't want to start going for 6 mile runs every day or something similar if you're trying to gain!

Working with cardiac rehab patients daily.....DO CARDIO! lol... On a serious note though, people tend to ignore the most important muscle of all, your heart. 20-30 minutes of 60-85% APMR is all you need 3x a week for cardiac improvement. As long as you can keep you calories above you daily caloric expenditure, you can still gain weight, increase lean body mass, and keep you ticker pumping affectively. And IF there are any unwanted areas you would like to decrease body fat in, cardio is necessary since there is no such thing as spot reduction. Body fat decrease as a whole. Any other questions please feel free to ask.
