where to fit it in?
im currently on a bulking cycle. taking cyp aswel. i train 4 times a week in the wieght room and 2 days a week with a light jog (2.5miles or so). i want to increase my cardio without being 2 detrimental to my bulking. endurace is important to me. i was thinking of doing 4 days a week run in the morning on an empty stomach. maybe on my workout days. wake up, run, breakfast, gym.
what do you think? im realy quite new to cardio and bulking. i have read a lot of threads but none realy explain WHY they choose to do the cardio they do.
any suggestions with explanations would be greatly appreciated!

The biggest concern with bulking is caloric intake. You would need to compensate for the extra calories used, with the addition of the two extra days of running. I would definetely keep the running to your workout days (so some days are completey off). To really push yourself towards endurance and weight gain is tricky and some may think is even contradictory, but you seem aware of that. Repeated: I feel that 3-4 days/week of an easy jog is not going to be really that detrimental as long as you take in sufficient calories. Some may disagree that you shouldn't do any cardio, but I say it's always good to do some. I wouldn't go beyond four days a week. In fact, for bulking, I would probably only do 3. Your endurance should still increase regardless.

yeah i think i will go with 3 days a week jog for about 30 minutes, row for 10 as a warm up.
probably like this
day 1 :chest bi's morning
day 2 :thighs morning
day 3 ff
day 4 :back tris morning
day 5 :shoulders calves monring
day 6 : cardio arvo
or i might have tyhat day 6 off and on day 7 just do cardio. so i have an extra day of rest?

well switch the white rice with whole wheat rice.
and try and get 4 small solids meals. and the other meals you can use shakes.
