Bulk to Cutting
Im in a bulking stage right now and consuming large amounts of carbs. In a few weeks I am going to shift my focus to much less carbs and still taking in large amounts of protein. Cardio will increase from about 20 min. 3 times a week to 5 times a week 45 minutes or so. I hear that cardio is best on an empty stomach. Will you lose muscle since your body is in a catabolic state during this period of time??

keep your heart rate around 65-75% through the 45 min, this burns more fat and keeps muscle burning to a minimum although you will lose some......220 - age X .7 to find heart rate

I am not understanding this either....
I have gotten wayyyy bigger in the last 2 months and i have been cutting lol. I lost about 5 pounds of fat and gained about 10 in muscle just buy upping the protein and fats and keeping the carbs low. I do 45 minutes every morning 7 days a week (ok sometimes 6 but whos counting ) and I have not lost any muscle at all. And sometimes I sleep for 12 hours on the weekends. Just don't go higher than your target heart rate and you will be fine.
