    If you can get to 5% without cardio, I wouldn't do it at all.

    I do not think it actually helps with gains, and running can be catabolic.

    i don't think it will help with gains. main thing is that it will help your heart be healthier. and that's a good thing!

    actually cardio has been studied and has shown to shorten recovery time between training sessions.

    gee i wonder regular 30min exercise helps with cholestrol, heart health, keeping low blood pressure , people with stress and keeps you defined and in shape and fat down. Now if that doesnt answer your questions just come to the roid monkeys jungle barn and let me shove a banana up your ass and give you some cardio. No im not a fag im just alittle different thats all.

    How are you measuring your BF%?

    I really doubt your 5% that isnt healthy to stay at 5% for prolonged periods of time plus it is really hard to maintain 5%.

    If thats you in your picture id say your more around 8% which is healthy and maintainable.

    You really dont need cardio for the fat loss effects but it will help keep the fat off during this cycle so throw in 30 mins at 65% or lower hrt rate like 3-4 times a week and youll get all the benefits of the cardio without it effecting your gains whatsoever.

    u should do cardio, not for better gains or losing fat, but for ur health. steroids are enlarging the inner walls of the heart. u can only fight it with cardio, low intensity min. 30 minutes, 2x week.

    I measure it using a caliper and plug the numbers into an equation on a fitness website... not sure which one becasue my rooommate does it for me... but im sure its about 5.02% at the moment. we did it three times to be sure and ive always had very low bodyfat. i was really skinny when i started lifting so when i lift the only thing i put on is muscle.
