    My football season is going to end soon and i want to begin lifting right after. I plan to lift to get stronger and i wonder if doing cardio will have ne affect on my strength like will it slow down gains and such.

    If you want to gain strength/muscle mass, then don't bother w/ the cardio. Just eat & lift.

    Some people do cardio for general health benefits. If you want to do cardio, up your calorie intake to compensate.

    Do cardio on a bulk, i believe that it will help limit the fat gain a little bit, plus its good for general health. if you workout 4 days a week, do cardio @ med intensity for 40 mins or so 2 off days, and leave 1 day totally off. IMO. There is a thread going on about cardio here sumwhere, "ways to limit fat gain on a bulk" is the name of it i think, something along those lines anyway.
