This all mother freakn day.Imo the cardio will eat muscle theory is pushed by people that dont want to do cardio justifying it in their own mind. All the health issues we see are more from overweight, lack of doing cardio than running an extra 600mg and "abusing " aas. At some point walking the dog became bodybuilding cardio and bp meds became part of the cycle. If this is the mindset I'd say health issues may be in the future.
Over the years I've worked to train more like an athlete, look more like an athlete than train and look like a bodybuilder. High aas, 6k calories, slow concentric training along with walking the dog for cardio imo is a recipe for some health problems. Find a way to get in some real cardio regularly, train explosive every now and then, play some basketball, good for longevity.
Coming up on 50, I train like an athlete.
Im much leaner. More energy. And just feel better all over. Plus I dont look like a water Buffalo.
I'm now back to my 20s early 30s athletic build. Plus I'm much stronger and have better endurance .
