    the owner at the outback i used to work out would get fucking pissed when we wouldnt prebus our tables (clear plates and shit off to help the bus boys)

    so he'd come barging into the back yelling:

    "PREBUS IS NOT A CITY IN CHINA"

    had us :rofl: every time.

    Do cardio unless you enjoy being an out of shape piece of shit, its not going to ruin your bulk for fucks sake. Just eat more.

    cardio increases nutrient uptake and keeps you from weezing walking up a flight of stairs...

    .
    You're putting on weight, and not increasing your aerobic capacity, you could hurt your health.
    Imagine a person with the lung capacity to support 160lbs of muscle trying to support 220lbs of muscle.

    not really...

    Ceaze recomended 20min 3 times a week and I could easily run more then 6 miles in 60 minutes spread over 3 days....
     
  22. 3-4 miles, 3 days/week. I eat until I want to die afterwards to make up for it.
