How to Properly do Cutting and Bulking Phases
Results 1 to 13 of Adding HIIT to bulk? Adding High Intensity Running Session to bulk? I have been bulking for the past 6 months and gained a solid 22 lbs of mostly muscle from to lbs, only 5'8'' and am really pleased with the results, but I still have the same damn love handles that I started with. I thought bulking would maybe mask them with the added muscle, but they are still there and noticeable.
I was wondering if adding a high intensity interval training routine to my normal 3 day full body split would add in some fat loss? I would also decrease some of my daily caloric intake to add to the fat loss, but I am scared to death of losing my gains.
If I still keep my normal lifting routine, I should maintain muscle while losing some fat due to the HIIT training, right? I never did cardio during my 6 month bulk. Last edited by jjasd; at Id do low intensity cardio 3x a week for 1 hour something just exhausting enough that you can only carry on short conversations while doing, like a dog slow 10k for 1 hour and not drop the calories.
This will be better than 3 20min sessions of HIIT if you can HIIT for 30min at this stage, you are a god since it wont fatigue your muscles and hinder recovery. Originally Posted by nightanole.

It's not like you are going to lose any fat if you remain in a net caloric surplus - and if you don't remain in a surplus you aren't going to gain mass. Don't be thinking you can swing from a surplus to a deficit on a day by day or hour by hour basis either because your digestive system and energy stores are much larger than that and just average out daily fluctuations in energy supply.

HIIT cardio will just burn more calories, and if you go into a deficit, your body will lose fat, not gain muscle mass. My advice is too choose what is more important to you, losing love handles or gaining muscle? I recommend people get as lean as possible before bulking. So if I kept my same weight lifting routine, added cardio, and reduced my caloric intake to a deficiency, I can maintain my gains while eventually losing fat?

I agree with the earlier post about getting as lean as possible first. Im not a fan of full body after you get a solid muscle base because its hard to stay anabolic when you are taking every other day off this is based of a very complicated timeline for windows of protein synthesis, elevated insulin levels etc etc , likewise it is hard to keep your body burning calories at a constant rate or at least a rate that is easier to calculate for your diet.
If you are in love with the full body 3x a week program, you probably should add in a quick 20 min cardio session on your off days, just to keep the body burning calories.

Stop spreading misinfo please. Jw, how is that wrong? I was going to quit the full body routine based on his info since it seemed to make sense, but not if it's wrong lol.
Firstly, he's been on the same program for 6 months, i guarantee that switching it up will shock his muscles and he will see improved growth, and at minimum sustained growth from his old program. Listen to any professional bodybuilder in the world talk about changing routines if you think this is misinformation. I wasnt saying the workout itself is more anabolic.
If you look at what i put in the parenthesis you will see that all of that information is diet based. There is always debate on nutrition timing vs straight up hitting your macro, but once again, i will believe what multiple time Mr.
Olympias say as far as training advice. Please name one Mr. Olympia who doesnt do a split routine. Read stickies and want to bulk properly this time By datoolman in forum Workout Programs.
