Cardio & DOMS

I'm currently cutting and plan to increase the number of cardio sessions I do. Whilst bulking, I have been doing Thai Boxing twice a week and now want to add in 3 or 4 sessions of running.

This will mean running with DOMS in my legs and back from squats and deadlifts. Is this ok, or will it hinder muscle recovery?

Thanks for any advice you can give.

    well it will hinder muscle recovery, but some very light cardio or stretching can help increase the blood flow...ermm r u cutting or bulking cuz u say both, confusing...how long r all ur session...just chug down some whey before and after to keep muscle loss to a minimum

    Yes, sorry, I wasn't very clear was I. I have been following a 5x5 for 4 months whilst bulking since last November, and while I've made some good gains, I also took the diet too far and ate everything in sight, including cakes and things like that. So, now I want to lose the excess fat, have adjusted my diet accordingly (about 2500 calories daily, down from about 3700). I weigh 189lbs, 5'10" and about 15%bf.

    I do Thai Boxing for two x 1 hour sessions a week and was going to add four x 1 hour running sessions per week. To fit this in I will have to run for the two days following back/legs day. I don't mind the super sore feeling when I'm running, I just don't want to do it if it would really hinder muscle recovery, as I really don't want to lose too much of the muscle I've managed to gain.

    If your cutting for a fight, be sure to stop dieting 2 weeks out.
    You need time to adjust to your new bodyweight.
    You'll be surprised how much weaker you are at only a few pounds less.
