      Sup fellas,

      I am going to be throwing a few km of cardio into my daily routine in an attempt to speed up the cutting process for summer. I am on 1g test e a week and feel like I am making reasonable gains. I want to know if i will lose muscle if i am still doing my daily 1hour and 30 minutes intense weight lifting at mid day 5 days a week but with cardio at like 8pm ed 5 days a week.

      I am kinda hoping that the 400g a day protein i am taking along with the test and creatine will help me retain my muscle if not gain muscle whilst still attacking my body fat effectively?

      Thanks in advance!

      I'd say as long as your diet etc is spot on then u shouldn't lose any muscle.

      I do some HIIT followed by low intensity incline walking. Seems to work for me

      Enjoy x x

      You'll have to really try to lose muscle on 1g test when dieting unless ya diet is seriously off

      Are you going to be running or steady state cardio?
