    Hi guys,

    About to start my bulk increase 10% after following my cut. Currently 12.5% BF and want to keep the visible abdominals. (Of course to drop BF whilst bulking would be awesome).

    Obviously understand that need to be caloric surplus but how often should I do cardio a week, what type, duration, intensity etc…

    Ps the app is freaking insane.

    Many thanks

    No exact right amount, if the goal is health/supporting gym performance/and letting you eat more food/not get too fat – I’d say 3 times a week. 2 hard HIT sessions (10-15 minutes) and one steady state, 20 minutes+. But again, really up to you to measure and track exact amounts. Just a decent start guess. If you can’t get enough calories in to grow, maybe cut it back. Getting too fat – maybe you it a bit

    Provided it’s not taking away from your training performance and the promotion of adding lean tissue, I am a pretty big advocate of low intensity bouts of cardio frequently. I think there is huge benefit for stress, recovery, circulation, and metabolism.

    For me personally, doing higher intensity cardio definitely does more harm than good.
