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

I don't do much cardio myself.

Come on Rocky you know that cardio can help the heart as well as help keep off fat... But just like young thug said "If I did not have to - why?" keepin it gangsta
Peace out there Mr. Stalone

will it help me make better gains? i might just throw it in becasue i hear when you do cardio you feel better and more energetic throughout the day...
Thanks Young Slug
Any other opinions?

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

whats with the rocky comments?

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.

D-end... you have any links where i can read about this?

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.

my question was about affecting my gains, positiveor negative,and in no way did you answer that...???
04-18-2005, 11:54 PM #25
i do 0 cardio also, im bout to start doing a lil somthin somthin though just to keep everything loose. somtimes i feel kinda tight since football season is over and i do no running at all, but in answer to ur ? i would do somthing in that kind of movement just to keep those legs limber and for better blood circulation

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.
