I am a little confused with all the replies to this topic.
I usually do cardio after lifting for about 45 mins(sprint,jogging) is this too much. Also does it matter how many miles you run? I always have a goal of atleast 4miles, would it be to much if on my off days from lifting I jog for 50mins?

I usually get about 2.5 miles in when doing avg 3.2 @ 15 incline. I think 4 miles might be pushing it if you are going for fat loss, you may also lose muscle. When walking/jogging outside I keep my pace nice and easy with minor increases in speed spread throughout.
Sure I can run forever at a decent pace, I ran for distance and I play competitive soccer. But I do not want to lose muscle so no HIIT after a workout for me.

I lost 65lbs doing cardio, but im sure any type of cardio if you're that over weight will do something great!

currently bulking while trying to keep fat gain at a minimum..will doing 15-20 minutes of cardio after lifting hinder any of my muslce gains?

I started @ 2.5 to 3.5 (1 minute intervals) Always a 15.0 incline. Then increased speed as it became easier at those speeds. The best part is according to the machine its over 500cals in 30 minutes, even though it may be inaccurate, its a badass feeling of accomplishment + I think it does good on calves, The last I go for the max speed i can tolerate non-stop brutal 2-3 minutes. Its hell.
