    IMO i would cut out the cardio if you wanted just straight mass. If you do decide to do Cardio i would do light Cardio such as walking on an inclined treadmill. The Eliptical machines are great for burning calories and damn do i get a pump in my calves for some reason.

    IMO .. if you are in very good cardiovascular shape, then I say it's fine to cut it out while on a bulking cycle. However, if your cardiovascular condition is only average, then I'd stay at 2-3 days of low-intensity cardio.

    I say do cardio like trimunex said! Its all good for the heart, plus it keeps it healthy! 2-3 days of low-intensity cardio.

    I bulked with and without cardio. I would much perfer doing cardio while bulking. If you do low intensity before breakfast it will keep you from turning into a big ball of goo.

    I do cardio no matter what I'm doing. While bulking it helps me keep the bloat and fat down. Also you need to keep the most important muscle in shape that's your hart.

    If you have a road bike, I'd recommend something like 5 miles EVERYDAY, regardless of your cycle or routine. Nice and easy ride every morning on an empty stomach....No crazy Tour De France sprints or hill climbs, just an easy ride.

    The only thing that it can do is IMPROVE overall condition!

    I do cardio when I bulk but I only do it three times a week and it is at a lower intensity. I like its effects on my appetite and it makes me feel better all around.
