Despite the fact that the last comment was loaded with sarcasm, I will take the luck. let me explain.
I maintain cardion in my workouts for one very simple reason. Who wants to be muscular if you can’t run 10 feet?
I am going for a good well rounded fitness here. Yes, i am small and wouldn’t mind adding some weight to truly meet my potential as the muscular little troll i know i can be, but i don’t want to sacrifice overall well being. Fitness is all encompassing, it’s not limited to just size gains. [/quote]
The sarcasm is dripping with seriousness actually.
If you intend on gaining 10 lbs of lean muscle mass, you should consider increasing your strength training and reducing your cardio.
Upping your calories to simply burn them off by running 9 miles a week isn’t going to get you there.
It sounds like your goals might be a bit different than weight gain.
