I just started a bulking cycle after 6 months off due to injury. So far I am up 6 pound in 4 weeks. Since I am bulking I have decided not to do any cardio for best results and I am somewhat pleased. However, I have a gained a substantial amount of fat in my midsection that I would like to get rid of. I would like to continue to add a few more pounds to my frame but lose fat at the same time.
My question is should I try to lose the fat by slightly cutting calories or should I keep the cals the same and add LOW intensity cardio to my training instead, maybe 35min on bike/traedmill only twice a week. My calorie intake is already low <2,300-2,500 daily> although I am gaining weight at this level. I am afraid that the cardio will slow down gains although cutting the calories may do the same, so which would be the lesser of 2 evils in my case?
