I was planing on still doing 5-6 days a week, just cut the duration down to like 30-40 mins. Does that sound good?

It's going to depend on how easily you get fat or how hard it is for you to grow. I would start off at 3-4 sessions a week if I were you and kind of watch the mirror over the next couple of weeks. If you see you're gaining weight too fast then you can up to 4-5 sessions....if your not gaining at 3-4 sessions then add in more food and do only 3 sessions.

Yeah buddy, I love morning cardio 4 days a week. It def helps me stay lean and eat a lot more. Plus its good to keep cardio health. At least after I finish a widowmaker of squats, I don't feel as if I might pass out.:)

I also do 4 mornings off season and as others have suggested, helps with the squats and deadlifts particularly. Also allows me to eat more food.

If you're training hard, I mean the way you SHOULD be training, then light cardio three times a week seems to be doing the trick for me. I'm talking 30 mins, walking on an incline on the treadmill. If you're doing cardio year round with some kind of intensity, how are you going to change your body come pre-contest? You don't want to be doing some insane amount of cardio in my opinion. One thing I do know is that three times a week plus the training makes it very easy for me to eat. I'm also not tempted to cheat nearly as much either as staying leaner helps you see what your working toward, for me at least.

Ditto-can pound a bit more down without it just becoming so much lard.

So you do the cradio on the same days you have squat or deadlifts?
I find cradio helps squats too, but usually I only do a breif session, 15-20 mins, in the morning on squat day. When I'm dieting that is..

Morning cardio 3-4 days a week in the morning on my non-lifting days for 30-40 mins pretty much year round.

Layne Norton, PhD in Nutritional Sciences (I think that's what it's in, not 100% sure) and pro natural BB'er is against empty stomach morning cardio for natural lifters.

Oh yeah, I think I read on here that alfresco also believes there should be some food or protein in the system before doing cardio.

Just throwin' that out there.

My weight had stalled at 220 for a couple months. I had never done morning cardio in my life until 3 weeks ago. Since starting it, I've gained 7 lbs just because of how much more hungry I am during the day.

I'm sold on the concept...
