    Cardio wile bulking?


    Hey guys I'm currently bulking and I do 1 day cardio a week just wondering if it's a waste if time or not?
    How I see it is cardio either tread mill or bike burns cals right and bulking u want ur 3500 cals aday so doing cardio to burn off Cals does sound pointless does it not?

    Thanks fellas cheers for any replys

    It depends if you play any other sport. I did no cardio when i bulked last but my basketball suffered drastically.

    I personally think 10-15 mins hiit would be fine and would stop fat gain.

    I like to do cardio while bulking for a few reason. One, so I stay in the habit of doing it.. Lol very easy to fall out of that habit. Another reason is the overall health benefits and I seem to loss my wind very easily when I stop.

    I do limit cardio whole walking to 30-40 min walks or 10 min hiit 2-3 times a week.. Unless I go over board with my bulk foods or drink to much booze..

    I think it depends on you. Are you gaining unwanted fat during your bulk? I liked to do cardio in the morning because it would help increase my appetite.

    I think you should still do it too keep you in habit, good for cardiovascular system, help keep you hungry too.. Just keep it limited to maybe 15-20 mins moderate pace.. your goal shouldnt be to drop cals

    I wouldn't do it on lif days just because I usually want to get as many cals in as possible. A little cardio here and there wont slow your muscle gains, just don't go overboard, and make sure you get your cals in.
