    When I do cardio, simply running is the last form of cardio I would opt to do. Unless you just enjoy doing it. You can burn quite a bit of calories if you run/Some form of HIIT on the treadmill or elliptical but for 10-20 min in a time crunch, I would look for a different form of cardio. Just my preference.

    Sounds good man will keep that in mind my bulk is almost halfway through I don't mean to change up the topic of this thread but since you're giving unreal info I'll ask you now I have never done a serious cut because I always trained for sports so my question is in regards to supplementation what do you think of arimistane at 25mg with a test booster do you think it's a good idea or should I stay away till I get lore experience I am turning 20 in early April.

    I just want to get drier

    Cutting is 100% diet. As with any goal. You have to make sure your diet and training are on point first and foremost. That being said, taking an AI can be very beneficial. At the same time, you can find supplements that have an AI in it along with other goodies that will help you achieve your goal. I'll get more into supplements in a minute. My personal opinion, I would start your cut with using the staple supplements only. Why? Because you want to use other supplements (like an AI) to your benefit and get the most out of them. If your diet isn't on point, they won't do too much for you. But once you have nailed down the consistency of meal prepping and training, that's when proper supplementation can help you achieve your goals.

    Forskolin (bulk or found in another supplement) is great for cutting or limiting fat gain while on a lean bulk. I would look into Anabeta Elite or AlphaMax XT if you choose to go the supplement route. The reasons AlphaMax XT is one of my favorite products to use during a cut or lean bulk is because the L dopa gives me a great night sleep, test boosting properties and the addition of forskolin. A lot of test boosters out there claim a lot of things but only provide increase in libido. AlphaMax XT can go right a lot with a great diet and training routine to provide body comp changes. Same with Anabeta Elite. Those two products are my top 5 favorites.

    So like I said, I would give your cut a solid 4 weeks or so to get the routine down of your diet and training and make sure you are seeing results without the use of supplements. Then, and only then, is when I'd venture out and look for a product like you described to help.

    That's very true thanks for pointing that out to me man! So I will get on with the cut in a couple weeks! When I finish up this lean bulk which although I have been slow with the weight gain my abs are popping out more and I have more g veins so I'm not sure if I should just incorporate more cardio and keep the same diet (so I don't try to fix what's not broken)

    Lean bulking can be hard if this is your first time doing it the right way. You have to gauge how much you can eat and how much cardio you can do to the point that you aren't losing muscle. Just keeping fat at a minimal while gaining muscle. Congrats on your progress so far!

    Thanks man do you think it would still be necessary to do a cut or should I lower Calories to maintenance and do a more cardio because I am approximately 13% body fat which I don't plan on diving into single digits I'd like to be at 10.

    That's totally up to you. We all have our own ideal body image in mind. Right now I'm around 15%. Maybe a little higher. Def under 20 but I am transitioning from a dirty bulk to a clean bulk now. Once I feel I need to lose some fat, I'll go on a short and intense cut and go right back into lean bulking. Totally up to you.

    Running is a horrible idea for building muscle & burning fat, imo.

    I walk on an incline, every morning, fasted for 30min. 3.3 speed and 15 incline with some caffeine, Tyrosine and GDA before.

    It's easier to keep that constant and adjust calories, than the other way around. Do what you can CONSISTENTLY do each week and adjust. I was doing HIIT 15-18min and it was great for prep but off season wasn't working as well. Went into a recomp and did LISS AND results were great. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I'm currently eating 450gr pro, 700gr carbs and 80gr fat. Was 220 this morning at 5'8-9"ish

    I don't have access to be able to do fasted cardio I can only go to the gym once a day and I have no cardio machine at home. The only way I could is if I went for a 15 min walk outside before I head to colllege.

    And damn 450g of protein and 700g of carbs lol that's crazy could you show me what one of your days looks like if you use like MyFitnessPal can you like screenshot that I wanna see what you do to get in those Calories

    You don't have to do cardio in a gym. Actually, the only form of cardio I do in a gym is the stair master.

    So you how do you do hiit?

    Also I was thinking of biking to school like 2x a week. It's about 10km away

    I do HIIT with any form of cardio I do. Stairs, jump rope, swimming, sprints (rarely do these), high/low step ups...etc. just google various forms of cardio and see what you find that you will like.

    Jump rope sounds unreal for calf pumps and easy to do.

    Brisk walk would suffice. I've used walking my dogs before when it's nice out.

    Well.....for carbs eat 3 cups rice (cooked) 30oz sweet potato, 1 cup oats, 1 bagel, 100gr from fiber based cereal, 1.5cups pancake mix and 100gr glycofuse intra.

    Fats are coconut oil

    4lbs cooked lean meat, 4 cups egg whites and 2.5 scoops whey iso post with 20gr Aminos intra.

    About 14 weeks ago I was at 350ish carbs and have worked up to 700gr

    700g carbs would bloat me so bad. I'd look like a pregnant woman. Rice is the worst culprit. I'm 220p/400c/110f

    I have heard that fats support hormonal production, lubricate joints, etc. A lot of fitness experts say 0.3-0.6g of fat per pound of lean body mass. Depending on how well you respond to either low carb/high fat or high carb/low fat. Although from my guess you're probably the later of the two. I like making fats 25%. I am following Layne Norton's Ph3 program macros.

    I get about 90g of fat in per day.

    Ahhh gotcha. Damn, that's crazy. White potatoes do that to me. Red and sweet I'm golden.

    Well, remember being "healthy" and being big and lean do not always go hand in hand. I'm trying to be as big and lean as possible. Over the years as I've increased training intensity, built muscle and been consistent I've MADE my body accept more carbs. It's all about nutritional set up. I used to very strong in low carb game. However, you can listen to everyone and their brother on what's "optimal" but they're not you, you and you. You have to experiment with what works best for you.

    I've been doing this for about 13years and I'm finally figuring it out. Keep and open mind and stay consistent with things for 3-4 months before you decide if it works or not. No quick fix in this game.

    Solid point for sure man that not everyone is the same and trying **** out is the best way of figuring out wether it works or not!
