    Transitioning from Cutting into a Clean Bulk...

    Well, I used to do semi-clean bulks, but I'm now looking to keep them far cleaner and keep my bf% below 10% year-round. I'm at about 8% bf right now and hopefully in about 3 more weeks, I'll be where I want to be and will be coming off my cutting phase and starting a clean bulk.

    Now, currently I'm doing cardio 9 times a week total. 5 days in the am (35mins) and 4 times PWO (20mins). Now, I really hate doing my cardio, so I figured before upping my calories when beginning my clean bulk, I might just totally cut out my cardio and keep my calories the same for the first week. That way, I don't have to get up at 6:30am to do cardio and can focus more on my weight training. I'm hoping as long as I don't up my calories that first week, I should be fine. Just wondering if going from cardio 9 times a week down to nothing that fast will have a negative cardiovascular effect or if it should be ok to do?

    If cutting that much cardio out all at once would be a bad idea, even if I kept the calories the same initially, would it matter if I stopped the am cardio or PWO cardio first? personally, i'd much rather cut out the am cardio initially and cut down to the 4 times a week PWO, but just wondering if there's any reasoning behind doing either one at this stage? thanks in advance guys.

    IMO, depending on how many cals you eat I would keep cardio at 2-3 days per week in the morning, depending how fast your metabolism is.
    I don't think you will have a problem dropping cardio down.
