beefcake to biffa

It only seems like yesterday people were commenting on how muscluar and big I was, now they're saying who's that fat bas!*rd over there!

I stopped doing cardio a few years ago in order to bulk, trouble is the more I put on weight the more I liked being bigger. I started out at 10st 2 and wanted to be 12st, but I just wanted more and more and now I've ended up 15st 6lbs.

Ideally I'd like to keep the weight but loose some excess fat (wouldn't we all) but I'm struggling to resume cardio with the weight I'm carrying. I'm 5' 11'' and 39 y/o and admit to getting out of breath going upstairs to bed!

What's the best way for me to introduce some cardio into my workout and keep the size?

    To lose fat -

    Steady state cardio before breakfast, light intensity, 30-40mins 5-6 days per week



    Why stop doing cardio just cause ur bulking? IMO cardio should be done all the time regardless of bulking or cutting unless ur an extremely hard gainer. A bit of fat is expected when bulking, i just don't see much point in adding a lot then making ur job a lot harder when its time to cut.

    im with above

    both work great for me, others only have good results from one

    lots of people will recomend low intensity as they below HIIT causes muscle catabloism
