cutting to lean bulk

if i want to move from a cut to a lean bulk, initially would i just drop all my cardio?
then depending on what my weight does, increase carbs as needed?

    Gradually increase your intake.

    Post up your diet that you are on now mate.

    dont get up to do it then, enjoy your sleep and fit it in elsewhere. I have no idea what cardio youre doing nor your intake at the moment

    As per Gaz, lets see what you got

    i would drop the morning cardio personally and limit the sscv to twice a week after weights and on one of your off days do some HIIT or look into Tabata or circuit training

    That would be a good amount to gain, 2lbs per month.

    You need to up your food mate, doesn't seem like a lot of food there.

    Increase your carbs and fats weekly, until you get to where you want to be.

    nah it isnt a lot, but still it seems personally for my body its just enough to lose about a lb a week or less.
