Muscle Mass For The Hard Gainer Part 5/7

Cardio for mass - Can you still do cardio while trying to put on mass?

The answer to this is simple: Yes.

Is the weight I'm gaining, fat gain or muscle gain?

As you watch your muscles grow over the next few months, ask yourself this: Is this fat gain, or muscle gain?

When you put on a hefty amount of weight over the next few weeks and months, you want to know whether this is muscle gain, or fat gain.

The easiest way of telling the difference is to look at your stomach. Is it getting bigger or smaller?


If you are packing on mass, and your abs are becoming harder and harder to see, it's safe to say you are putting on more fat than what you are muscle.

How to get rid of this extra fat? Simple: Cardio.

Won't cardio make me lose muscle? No.

Cardio is great for your muscles. It delivers oxygen to your muscles much more efficiently. We recommend cardio, always!

When adding cardio in with your mass building, consume more calories than normal. The body will use these extra calories for energy, and also help burn the fat that's on your body while sparing the muscle, allowing you to continue growing.

Cardio does not burn muscle, but...

Cardio along with poor nutrition, plus 'not' eating enough is what causes the negative effects that so many claim.

In addition to the cardio you are now doing along side your mass building, we recommend adding medium chain triglycerides a couple times a day, to help burn extra fat. So this way you are ultimately gaining lean mass!

One more thing...

We recommend the Pro Bodybuilder Ben Pakulski Program. This is for people who want massive gains!
