  4. slightly off topic but, i hear so many people say not to run while bulking, I personally think running (not too much) helps keep the gains on a bulk leaner. It would seem to me that due to glycogen usage during running it would help with insulin sensitivity in the muscles. What are you guys opinion on that theory?

  5. I like cardio on a bulk just for cardiovascular health

  6. idk man, I grew a tail and wings from doing cardio.

    Off topic, but that speaks to the importance of having a focus. Runners aren't going to get bigger b/c they aren't focused on lifting, just as few BB'ers will be competitive runners.
    That being said, any runner who is truly seeking to perform their best NEEDS to take the weights seriously (as it is the number one way to avoid injury).

  9. All of us that compete have to do some form of cardio , at some point during the 'on season'... Example: if I was running on an incline, it would b a 1/2 hr, but if I was on the stepper, it would b 1hr.. / session...

    prolly usian because I'd assume he trains explosively. mine as well ask who can do more reps. still irrelevant. if you do an hour of LISS vs 20-30mins of HIIT, it's not going to change how much you can lift

  15. If you watch my video in full YouTube mode you can see the references I put in the information box underneath.

    P.S. there is difference between running and cycling as well as HIIT vs LISS in terms of concurrent training on lean body mass and strength.

  16. True, try 15-20 min of HIIT a couple times a week.
