Cardio for bulking.

Im growing at a decent rate but would like to add some cardio in to combat the fat. I was wondering what would be sufficient?

Slow runs, fast runs, how often etc?

Thanks, Owen.

    if your looking to keep the fat off do HIIT. if you've got a local track 100m sprints with 100m slow jog/walk are good, boxing is really good, skipping.

    im currently jogging for 2mins and sprinting for 1min, repeated five times. im doing this three times per week

    Id probably aim for 2-3 low intensity sessions whilst bulking mate. Easy to adjust if its too much/not enough.

    God no, I ****ing hate jogging! Id go with steep incline walking on a treadmill or stationary bike.
     
    Do this for a few weeks then if you feel like you want to add in some more intense type stuff something like running hills might be a good option.

    my training has always included HIIT so im sticking with it while bulking, i guess CNS burnout would be possible if your doing loads of it but much more than im currently doing imo.
