i usaully jog 7 miles twice a week burning 1000 calories. I've heard many times how cardio can result in muscle loss but will this amount of cardio do the same for me since it's only twice a week.
If you eat enough, you can still maintain/gain muscle but you should probably schedule your cardio days on different days than your lifting days since you're running a good amount.
Are you sure running 7 miles = 1000 calories burned? That seems like a lot. Or do you mean that 7 miles twice a week combined = 1000 calories burned?

Alright you'll probably be okay. Are you bulking or cutting though?
also, look into some HIIT rather than long sets of cardio - you might like it.

I actually miss doing cardio. I'm bulking right now so I only do cardio or HIIT once a week or so.
Back when I was "cutting" (I didn't really have the concept of "cutting" I was just trying to lose weight) I would do long sessions of regular cardio...just trying to run farther each time.
I didn't really like runnning specifically, but it was really satisfying to run even a half mile farther than I had last time (I was really out of shape).
I do endless amounts of cardio everyday and it can't seem to stop me from getting bigger...

so i'll be fine then??
i'm noticing from my cardio that i may be losing muscle mass cause my weight is going down but i'm not noticing appearance changes- but dont quote me on this i really dont konw i'm new to this stuff (waiting for Built to help me out on this one).
now I have no clue what to do
Ryan, just eat a lot. If you notice that you have a hard time growing, do less running and/or eat more.
k... i'll see how it goes
