How important is cardio while on a cut? I lift 4 times a week and eat roughly 1000 calories below my TDEE so the cardio shouldn't be all that necessary, right?
>>
>>46798656
Just do the cardio. It's good for you

You’re going to have a much harder time burning fat cells heavy in alpha receptors without cardio. You’ll be stuck with love handles.

might be placebo, but I swear I look better/more tone around my abdominal after I HIIT train. lasts for like a day or 2.

Also, just do some cardio, exercise the muscle that keeps all the other muscles going. You'll lean down faster, you'll be more capable, and you'll look better.

Elliptical for 15 minutes after lifting 3 times a week. Boost your time by 5 minutes every week until you hit 30-40 minutes, then work on increasing the resistance once you get there.

It's almost necessary if you plan to cut for months.You can't keep reducing calories forever,at one point you should be burning more from activities and eating as much as possible.

Cardio trims fat, I don't know why you wouldn't do it if you're cutting since the goal of cutting is to trim fat. That is like saying you wanna bulk, but you don't eat.

Question for jump rope fags, where do you do it?

If I jump on concrete I start to get pain around my sinuses, looked it up and I'm pretty sure its from repeated impact with a hard surface. Any mats to recommend me?
>>
>>46803531
>mats
Your technique is shit
Keep your ankles/knees loose and don't keep your muscles engaged while landing.
Also warm up before jumping.

All that said, a yoga mat will do, also jump barefoot.

My body itself doesn't hurt, like I said its a pain around my sinus area, like when you get an ice cream headache

My love handles have gone away and all I’ve done was eat in a deficit and lift.

Not him, but that's most likely fine. For me personally I measure "acceptable" cardio as a function of your strength (so if you're a big fat fuck power lifter it's different), but as a rule of thumb I think you should be able to run a mile under 10 minutes consistently. If you can do that and all of your lifts are on point, you're in a good spot. It's just an issue I think when you're one of those people that doesn't do ANY cardio or your cardio is like a 5 minute walk on the treadmill at 2.5. Try mixing it up too. I think a little diversity in your cardio is good.

Is this all broscience or is cardio actually effective at fat loss outside of it burning calories (which can be achieved by eating at a deficit)?

it's a waste of time unless you actually want to improve your cardiovascular performance
fat loss is about energy deficit and nothing else

I don't agree with this. If you cut for long enough your body will have no choice but to burn through stubborn fat deposits. Cardio is just another tool to break through cutting plateaus.

Cutting gets harder and harder the lower BF% you go but as long as you eat fewer calories than your body needs your fat deposits will shrink. For most people though it will be harder to maintain a caloric deficit while doing lots of cardio.

inb4 starvation mode, bro science nonsense.
>>
>>46813442
Something else to consider is that the leaner you get the more your body will prefer to burn muscle over fat. Getting bellow 10-12% without losing muscle is really difficult without anabolics. Cardio comes in handy there.
>>
>>46808857
>why is there none inbetween your dick and navel
S O Y
>>
>>46813462

I'm at 12.5% BF and I've gone from doing cardio 2-3 times a week to 5-6 times a week to break through a cutting plateau and I think it's just making things harder. Constantly fatigued and crazy hungry all the time. There's no way I can keep it up. Gonna try 4 cardio sessions a week next week.

So maybe more cardio is better for cutting below 12% BF but I don't know how people do it.

Don't be a pussy. I do cardio 6 times a week and I'm not even cutting. It's a matter of adaptation.

What about circuit training? I did 3 sets of 20 on the rows on pic related and felt gassed as fuck, I'm thinking about something like
OHP 1x20
Push-ups 1x20
Rows 1x20
Goblet squats 1x20
Hamstring curls 1x20
Leg raises 1x20
Running/pedalling fast for 3 minutes
Repeat.

The secret to good cardio is bouts of high and low intensity exertion. It produces faster improvements, mimics the kind of exercise our ancestors did and trains the heart for that one in a billion moment when it suffers a heart attack and needs to go all out to keep itself pumping.

Steady cardio is less useful.
