    Cardio while on cycle?

    Does anyone have any opinions about doing cardio while on cycle. My main focus is to gain muscle mass and I know that that cardio has the potential to diminish your gains. I have also learned that the side effects of certain steroids make cardio more difficult. My regiment right now is as follows.

    25mg d-bol everyday for 6 weeks along with twelve weeks of test e at 500 mgs per week followed by pct.

    It's always a good thing to include cardio. Regardless of cycling.

    I do low intensity cardio everyday that I train. Right after for 20 minutes keeping my heart rate below 130 and it has never hindered my gains

    Yep and regardless of goals as well ie cutting/gaining.

    If you're worried about the calories burned during cardio, simply raise your daily caloric intake to compensate.

    That's good to hear since I would not want to quite cardio for 12-14 weeks at a time. At what point would cardio become detrimental to making lbm gains?

    Good to know. I typically do about 20 minutes of high intensity interval training after I lift. Should I be doing low intensity instead or just keep at it and make adjustments accordingly?

    I try to keep it in the sweet spot for fat burning but I find that is way to slow a pace while I am riding. HR is probably in the 80-85 percent range during the majority of my biking. Which is probably way to high... But going slow sucks so bad.

    I've probably posted this a dozen times before and I've said it to more people in the real world than I can remember.....if even Ronnie Coleman does cardio in the off-season, what makes you think you don't need to?

    More to the point, keeping cardio in your plan means a stronger metabolism. A stronger metabolism means you'll be able to gain a higher quality weight. Weight for weights sake is not good weight. Plus, it's simply good for you to do. Keeps you healthier and helps reduce risks that might otherwise mount up due to gear use.
