Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Cardio while bulking, is there a point?

    Hey,
    I am currently bulking, is there ANY point in doing cardio or is it just a detriment to my progress at the moment?

    There have been countless threads on this topic. Do a search.
    The simple answer is that doing cardio provides cardiovascular benefits, which is clearly a positive, especially if you are an athlete. If you take in enough calories to account for those lost while doing the cardio, then you should not have a problem with bulking.

    agreed, you need to get your heartrate up and your blood pumping no matter what phase your going through in lifting.
    Granted "cardio" is a broad term.
    Some people consider running 8 miles 5 days a week cardio, some consider walking one mile twice a week cardio.

    If your bulking I wouldn't go for more than an hour and a half a week (total cardio)
