Mass and Cardio?
Hey bros I'm presently on a mass-building workout. What are your thoughts on cardio? Should I continue with 5 days a week (in the morning) or cut it down? Any ideas?

Basically, if you want to gain mass, you don't want to burn too much off. Too much cardio can (doesn't mean it always is) be counterproductive.

Thanks cB! I think I'll cut it down to maybe a couple times a week for now

I think you may also take into account your body type. You can still do cardio and gain mass but maybe limit it too just around 3 times a week if you love cardio that much.

Actually caturpilar, I really can't stand doing that much cardio. I was cutting over the summer and went down to about 12% from 23% BF so I stuck with it. Only problem was I lost some good size as well. So I slowed it down to about 2 or 3 times per week. Now, I do only about 40 to 60 minutes per week. My problem is I tend to gain muscle and BF rather easily.

You could also just lower the intensity. If bulking I MUST keep up the cardio to ward off fat gain/bloat.

Bros ur right. I guess I shouldn't neglect cardio all together. I'll keep it to about 2 or 3 times/week. One question though, can I do cardio on my off days instead of my workout days?
