I am trying to gain some weight and I am wondering if adding some cardio work is a good thing or not
cardio? is that a city in spain?
when bulking, the walk to my car is my cardio
Jump up and down while looking at your mid section in the mirror.
running on the treadmill I mean
my current cardio routine:
walking from car to gym (~10 sec)
walking from gym to car (~10 sec)
so about 20 seconds/day 4 days a week.
i did do the stairmaster for 10mins 2 days last week.. brutal.
cardio can help during weight gain. jjust remember to add the calories you spent during the effort.
always a classic
seriously, nothing wrong it it. some say it helps to keep fat gains down. but like evo said, just make sure to account for it in your caloric intake
the owner at the outback i used to work out would get fucking pissed when we wouldnt prebus our tables (clear plates and shit off to help the bus boys)
so he'd come barging into the back yelling:
"PREBUS IS NOT A CITY IN CHINA"
had us every time.
it's only going to help
I don't do cardio...
because i hate it.
Do cardio unless you enjoy being an out of shape piece of shit, its not going to ruin your bulk for fucks sake. Just eat more.
cardio increases nutrient uptake and keeps you from weezing walking up a flight of stairs...
You're putting on weight, and not increasing your aerobic capacity, you could hurt your health.
Imagine a person with the lung capacity to support 160lbs of muscle trying to support 220lbs of muscle.
20 mins three times a week
6-12 miles/week running.
that's more than SOME cardio...that's a fucking half marathon
Ceaze recomended 20min 3 times a week and I could easily run more then 6 miles in 60 minutes spread over 3 days....
3-4 miles, 3 days/week. I eat until I want to die afterwards to make up for it.
I went from 160-170 lbs. running three 5K/week and rarely missed a day for 2 years straight.
maybe it's cause I hate running so much.
i think im just gonna do treadmill 3 times a week for 20 mins on an incline
