Hey, there, Sanjeev. I see you’re new to T-Mag.
Unfortunately, the sad news is that you are not likely to put on 5-10 pounds of muscle is that period of time without prohormone assistance (like Mag-10). Even that assumes you have your diet dialed in and your are working out hard and smart.
Once again, gaining muscle is going to involve 2 factors; proper nutrition, the program you’re following. Start reading everything you can get your hands on here on T-Mag. There’s a magazine, archived articles, and the T&N forum. The search engine to the left of your screen will allow you to search either one.
As far as cardio goes, I’d keep it to a minimum while bulking. Do a search on HIIT, which is High Intensity Interval Training. Short, sweet, intense and it won’t work against your hypertrophy goals.
As far as hypertrophy (bulking) programs, all of us here have our own preferences and approaches. Myself, I love Chad Waterbury’s programs. Do a search of T-Mag (by changing the drop-down window) for ABBH (Anti-BodyBuilding Hypertrophy).
If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
