    Why would you want to do cardio on a bulk? Thats just going to = more food you have to eat. I walk 45mins on my non training days, just because I'm trying to minimize how fucking fat I'm going to be at 200lbs. Still though it's just walking and I had to take into account that I'll be doing that when I totalled my calories.

    But yea you shouldn't be able to play basket ball after working out. Even on bench day my legs are very tired because of hip drive and heavy bent over rows.

    This was my day yesterday. I know this may be off by a little since Korea food is quite difficult to track since I don't make my meals per serving, but this is how I track my meals using Myfitnesspal.

    Hmm is it hard to find actual protein in Korea? Company I work for is based out of Korea and they say it's all BBQ. I eat a lot more than that on my lifting days, seems like theres something off with that calorie total.

    Your body adapts fairly quickly. I don't feel shit from squatting anymore, no DOMS or anything. I can't squat multiple days in a row because I'm used to it. Deadlifted max effort for the first time in like a year last month and it destroyed me. After a few weeks of doing it twice a week I don't get DOMS anymore.

    since thermodynamics don't suddenly stop to exist when you walk in the gym, it's either

    too little calories going in
    or too much going out

    or both.

    On days I have classes (tuesday thursday) I won't have time for Breakfast but everything else is pretty similar (mon, wed, fri, sat, sun). I will also have 2-4 beers on those nights (tuesday thursdays).

    And on workout days, I will take the Creatine with my post workout protein drink.

    Well I'll tell you one thing. Protein is too low and carbs are too high imo.

    I'll definitely increase my caloric intake since I'll most likely never stop playing ball. Also try to cut down on the carbs and up protein.

    I guess I figured I could just eat anything and get bigger. This is a lot harder than I thought... thanks for all the advice.

    well that came out a bit snarky.. what i just meant is that if you're highly active, your daily energy needs will reflect that, i.e. you might need to eat a lot to obtain that surplus.

    e. as in my former poast was a bit on the assholish side

    Oh, no, sorry, I wasn't trying to be snarky at all, I was serious. It makes sense, if I'm gonna choose to be more active, I would obviously need to take in more calories. I'm totally new to all this bulking up business so I'm taking in as much as I can from everyone here.

    Yeah, something I didn't anticipate when switching from 3 days/wk -> 2 days/wk is that my recovery time would actually get worse...

    Rule of thumb is.. if you're not getting bigger.. eat more.. still not? Eat more.

    lol at the blanket statement of doing cardio means progress is left at the table, sorry. if you're competing and your cns is taxed to the max and you are already eating 5k+ a day, then sure, tone down the 2 hour cardio sessions. if you're like 95% of other people, the cardio monster is not going to come in and steal your gainzz. its a balance and i highly doubt the incremental benefit in terms of "lifting progress left on the table" outweighs the first unit of marginal utility from having the cardiovascular ability to walk up stairs without dying.
