It might seem strange to have a dedicated cardio day on a bulking program, but today's short session won't interfere with your gains and could even help you grow. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) can spur muscle growth and serve as active recovery, moving nutrients and oxygen-rich blood through your hungry muscles.
Hit today's cardio session hard, stretch and foam roll at will, and then focus on recovery for the rest of the day. Remember, proper rest is just as important as intense training. You need rest to get swole.
Perform 20-30 minutes of HIIT cardio on the equipment of your choice. Alternate 1 minute of high-intensity work with 1 minute of low-intensity work until you reach 20-30 minutes.
To support recovery, spur growth, and help prepare your body for the upcoming week, take the following supplements on your rest days.
