Project Superhero's & Cardio

Both Stan Mcquay and Gina Aliotti both do a lot of cardio in their off seasons. I’ve read that Ronnie Coleman also does 45 minutes of cardio a day also during his off season. Might I point out they are all very successful bodybuilders.

I’m stating this out because it’s been an on going agurement at my gym. No cardio when you’re trying to build/bulk during the off season. The success of all these bodybuilders might have a few of you “big guys” rethink that maybe cardio is not the devil after all.

When I’m really really hungry, I’ll sometimes run to the refrigerator for some food. Does that count? Also, between sets, I’ll walk to the water fountain instead of bringing a water
bottle with me- cross training at it’s best.
