    Is it ok to do cardio when bulking?

    I am trying to add on some poundage right now, but I like to run too. I usually run 20 minutes a day 3 days a week. The other days of the week I am lifting. Can I keep doing this and still gain mass, should I cut back, or should I cut it completely? Your thoughts.

    Less cardio = more mass.

    Cardio is good for your health, but will not maximize muscular gains. Gino called it again. He must have stayed at a Holiday Inn express last night.

    I think that adding 2 days of cardio a week when bulking (jogging not high activity sports for about 20 minutes ) will not ruin bulking. But after all it all depends on your metabolism my metabolism can't afford to eat so much calories without doing some sort of cardio ...
    It all depends on yourself....also cardio increases stamina! Knew that??

    I think that anyone having either a slow metabolism or a tendency to get fat or bloat should do cardio period.

    Keep training BIG_R
