If I ride my bike to the gym, which is a mile from my house, and back home, should I do cardio at my gym. A 1 mile bike ride really doesn't qualify as a "cardio workout". I am also lifting weights 4 times a week ... and I run for 15 minutes after my ... weight training I really don't think this is enough workout that you need to worry about ...

Will eating lots of eggs and peanut butter, and drinking a lot of milk help you bulk up? Yes, however I hope that you are not just eating these for your breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you seriously want to gain muscle mass, then consider calculating your TDEE and add 200~500 calories(this is known caloric surplus). Next your protein intake should be 1g ...

This is purely my opinion based on my experiences as a bodybuilder. The answer to your question is twofold. If you’re competitive, or, plan to be, you should look at having one “cheat” day per week as a general rule. The other 6 days, you should try to eat as clean as possible. If you aspire to that eating goal, your diet would be optimum 86% of the ...

None. There will never be a point where you have to consume supplements in order to reach your protein (or any other) goals, but it may make it easier.

To expand on the first answer, it depends. Cardio has two main uses: 1) It increases the amount of work you can do in a given workout session. As you get further into a workout, the aerobic system provides more and more of the energy used to lift the weights. Stronger aerobic system = more reps/sets completed. 2) It increases the calories your body needs ...

It is possible to get some muscle with a poor diet, but it will probably be slow, with high fat precent and not the full capacity of the body. Eating good is a vital thing to fully develop your body.
