Cardio on OFF Days - BULKERS?
What do you guys do for cardio on your off days? Bulkers doing PM? Is it retty moderate? slow incline walk or are you sprinting?

3.2 for 30minutes.

15%? do you feel it's better than 4.0 or 4.5 flat?
01-24-2006, 01:57 PM #4
I don't feel a need to go to that point. I won't even be going that fast when I am cutting. 3.8 max.
01-24-2006, 02:02 PM #5
at what % grade incline??
01-24-2006, 02:04 PM #6
I'm not even doing it inclined right now at all.

I usually walk at a 12% incline at 3.1-3.2 MPH or I do the elliptical at about 15-16 level resistance

I usually walk at a 12% incline at 3.1-3.2 MPH or I do the elliptical at about 15-16 level resistance for about 30 min. 2 times per week whenever I have time, but usually in the PM

I'm bulking and I'm not trying to look like an olympic swimmer. So there you have it.
My progress pics speak for themselves.

Doesn't that take you way above the 60-65% you want?
It would me and I'm 20...
I usually walk at a 10 degree incline at about 2.5

I need it for cardiovascular health on bulkers, don't wanna be breathing all hard and shit all the time, plus I mean its only twice per week...won't hurt anythign as long as you're eating

I think what I'll do is off days 3.5 at 4 or 5% incline for 35mins.

Gotcha, thought this was how you did all your cardio sessions, and bulking that would have been pretty detrimental.. but i think i see where you're coming from.

Run sprints on off days (3-4 days a week). Working very well for explosiveness and fatloss.
I've lost about 8lbs in 3-4 weeks. Lost some muscle thickness , but look more athletic and cut, so can't complain.
Wouldn't suggest doing it if your a bodybuilder or someone wanting to pack on size.

On lifting days I eat alot of carbs.
On running days I hardly eat any at all. Just in the first meals of the day.
Then I run around 5pm and don't eat any after that.
Alot of protein.
I'm just trying out this idea and seeing if it will do anything.

IMO its all about heart rate.. that determines what your body utilizes for fuel.
more strenuous the activity the higher the demand for amines
when bulking i do Cardio 5x a week, 35min at 60%MHR which is like taking a shit and reading a news paper but it helps me immensely w/ my stamina and excess fatty deposits..
when cutting i go 50min 6x a week 75% MHR which is like having sex(FOR A FAT KID)

then after cardio i wait 15min(shower) shoot my slin igf and eat massive oats and eggwhites
i just feel cardio is essential for good health and when bulking .. thats hella hard on the body
some people can do it 3x a week yes but for me i see best results w/ 5x a week when bulking staying REALLY LOW on MHR

I'LL BET you 100-1 that you are the amount of fat you are burning with your am cardio is absolutely minimal. At 60%, my walking the dog for a mile in frigid weather burns just as much....guarunteed.

?? where is that from?
You cardio is more for a mind sanity point then anything else...no flame, just not doing much at 60%, I'd opt for a shake
01-26-2006, 11:25 AM #25
60% is exactly what Swole teaches and preaches... I do it a.m. almost every morning, every week, and im cutting up really well after my fall bulker.
01-26-2006, 11:33 AM #26
60% my ass
60% really does minimal.....not even fat burn........try 65-
01-26-2006, 12:01 PM #27
hey slin2winny its just my take on it, works for me. Maybe you should give it a shot. many MANY guys cardio or die by this.

70 is the highest I went..when I went 75 I noticed a bit of muscle loss by cutting.
Im in this jogging class and we jog a lil bit..I hope that doesn't hurt me while bulking.

I know its pretty gay. I eat 3 packets of weight control oatmeal and 10 eggwhites beforehand. (87g carb around 80g protein)
