Hiit while bulking??
Ok I plan on adding the spartacus workout to my bulk routine on days I don't lift weights Tuesday and Fridays as my cardio workout. My weightlifting routine is 5x5 fierce novice that I got from BB.com it's 3 times a week, and I need your opinion on if this is a good way to shed fat while maintaining muscle possibly even build some as long as I increase my weight on weight lifting days.

Doesn't the spartacus workout involve weights? Do you have access to cardio equipment? Personally, I'd do something with that for HIIT.***PES Representative***

If you're eating in a calorie surplus, then you won't be able to 'shed' body fat at the same time. I would certainly include some type of cardio into your training routine to help minimize fat gain while bulking, but it will be difficult to lose body fat while eating enough food to build muscle. If you're very new to training this can be accomplished, but after 10-12 months of consistent training it is very difficult to do both at the same time.
I would focus on one goal (muscle gain or fat loss) and be sure you are eating properly to support your goals. I always incorporate HIIT during my bulks to minimize fat gain, but other than that cardio is kept to a minimum on a bulk. I typically do HIIT 2-3 times per week while bulking, and I've noticed that it can be very beneficial for staying leaner while gaining weight.

Something that might be difficult is recover. Being in a deficit, 5x5 and HIIT cardio may make recovery a little difficult. For that, I would suggest PowerMax XT. Not only will PowerMax XT help with recovery with the full dose of COP and TMG, but it will also help improve strength and endurance with a full five grams of creatine. The full 2.5 grams of L-Alanyl L-Glutamine will aid in recovery.
One other great thing about TMG is that it aids with body composition, which is what you are aiming for. Give the following articles a read.
