Avoid HIIT whilst bulking?

I'm bulking at the moment, something similar to Frankie NY's 3 day split (Pull, Push, Legs) on the following days:

Monday - Pull
Wednesday -Push
Friday - Legs

Now if i do HIIT on another other day (or one of my training days) i feel like i'm overtraining. However if i do standard lowish intensity fat burning after Pull and Push days and then on saturday OR sunday, i feel fine.

HIIT - heart rate upto MHR (maximum heart rate)for 25 mins
Fat burning - Constant 140-150 HR for 45 mins

I am thinking of dropping HIIT whilst bulking, and sticking with low intensity fat burning. Any imput would be appreciated.

Thanks Alex.

    HIIT is best used to keep as much muscle as possible while trying to cut fat. i think that while bulking cardio isn't so important and its just to keep as much fat as possible off of your body. I would think while your bulking personal preference would be best for cardio. if you feel too tired after HIIT and don't want that then go for moderate cardio.
