    No one can tell you if your cardio is enough for you - only you can do that. If you feel like it's not enough, then make it more intense, or add another 5 minutes pre-weights. If you're bulking, if you eat enough to cover the energy expenditure of your cardio, then you will still get results.

    I think you've answered your own question. Getting leaner while on a bulk is a positive thing, and, well, I wouldn't fix something that's not broken

  4. Just don't completely stop the cardio, it can be very beneficial on bulks.

  5. Especially on a bulk if your trying to make it clean cardio is a nessecity, even just 10 minutes after is enough in my opinion if your hitting the weights hard it shouldnt really matter. But 10 minutes medium-high pace after is just fine for bulking.

  6. i started out at 209 pds now im at around 217..i gainesd alot in 3 weeks but been dropping bf about 1 - 1.5%. is this good? creatine really shot my weight up damn!!

    1. Recomping is good, yes.
    2. It's not the creatine causing you to gain weight - since you're bulking, some of that lean mass gained will be food and water weight.
    3. You don't need to ask questions about absolutely everything.
