    Don't listen to the liftingjew. Cardio makes you built. Even builds lats.

    Too much cardio without enough nutrition maybe. If you eat well enough, doing cardio like 3 times a week should not effect your gains negatively.

      Sounds like you response well to high reps and high volume
      >I thought cardio was bad for muscle growth
      Only if you overdo it. Improving overall work capacity is good for gains.

      As an addendum, do uphill running if you have places like that in your area. That shit does help your leg muscles to get strong that one is for sure. It won't replace leg workout but serves as a decent supporting exercise.

    It's only bad if you're running so much that you can't progress which I have been guilty of. Had to quit Strava because I was so addicted to getting PRs and KOMs I was shredding my legs and my lifts regressed.

    I'll say this. I never started running regularly and whenever I jog my anterior tibialis GETS PUMPED TO SHREDS and limits me before cardio.
    Whenever I sprint MY ADDUCTORS GET FRICKING PUM-PED OKAY!?

    There may be some newbie muscle gains associated with running.

      >anterior tibialis
      OP here. This was me too in the beginning. I think it was a postural issue for me. When I got this, I want to think it was my glutes that didn't fire, because I focused on dealing with their activation at the time during the run. Now, I typically warm up for 5 minutes walking huge steps and activating my glutes on each, with an incline. Afterwards, I make sure to maintain proper posture with activates glutes during the entire run. I don't feel it in the anterior tibialias anymore, and maintaining the same pace, I can run for hours without fatiguing there now.

        This whole le activation le posture thing is bs. There's technique to running sure, but it's not le tibs stealing work from glutes since they have COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FRICKING FUNCTIONS

          It's obviously not only the glutes. It's the entire chain. I remember my hips being weak when running. I would run with good form at the start then sort of sink in to my hip and just let my legs (thighs and calfs) do the entire work
          I remember my anterior tibialis dying
          Running is a whole body exercise. Now, my whole body works in synergy and yesterday after running for an hour, my whole body's been sore for the past 2 days.
          Your fricking anterior tibialis shouldn't be the muscles that give in first. The load shouldn't be on them. Your form is bad and you need to incorporate all the important muscles into your run to get something out of it.

            I dont believe, you probably were slacking

            this is true, what helped me was switching to barefoot - good thing is it feels very natural and fun to run and fixed my issues/injuries, also huge calves, the bad is you have to ease into it, cant run on rocks(maybe there's a special shoe for that), and you will almost never be able to compete with cushioned runners in terms of time, you can compete over very short distances(sprinters do NOT use cushioned shoes when running)

      Moron sprinters LIFT A FRICKTON. Just like all the other high intensity athletes.
      Do you think basketball players are so tall because playing basketball makes you tall? Fricking moron.

      Maybe it is because I incorporate sprinting in my running? I run 10 minutes at 10 pace, and then increase to 13 for 2 minutes, then back down to 10 pace for 8 minutes, 13 for 2, 10 for 8, and so on for an hour.

      At 13, it is intense sprinting. 10 is fast jogging
      Can that be the reason or would that be more long distance still?
