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 dont like cardio very much while bulking, but in saying that, i live on an acreage and basically my form of cardio is push mowing 1/2acres once or twice a week, and in the north Queensland, Australian heat, you get a good workout lmao!!

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.

Thanks for all the replys fellas, gains a lil bit of fat but not much nothing to worry about, I don't really play much sport but I have a pretty phyical job, it is easy to look it that's for sure might just do 10 mins 2-3 times a weeks
Cheers fellas : )

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.

I'm making sure I get 3500 cals aday every day for sure, iv found a great app on my Phone called 'caloirecounter' helps me add up and makes sure I'm getting the cals not just guess work, as we all know diet is 70% of any training it's as easy as u don't eat u don't gain isn't it fellas,
