It all depends on what you want,,,if you want bulk, little cardio as possible,,,but still do cardio twice a week,

But most people will say maybe twice a week, for me its every day, i do medium intensity for 30minutes everyday. And i have a ripped look.

Start with 30mins 3 times a week, then increase after say 4-5 weeks.

Damn, I can't handle cardio at all.

I'm going to start doing 20 minutes of jumping rope, awesome cardio exercise, a couple times a week.

I'd say don;t do cardio until you're at least 3 weeks into the diet. This way you can be sure that it is the diet that is affecting you and also lets you know how the diet affects you with no other major factors involved.

once you start up then you may wish to begin with 20-30 minutes twice a week to see what your cardiovascular conditioning is like, and as soon as you think you're ready, go for 3 days a week for 30 minutes a piece - alternatively you could try the HIIT for about 15 minutes 3 times a week. check this thread out for info:

I've only done it properly once so far - last saturday morning. it killed me haha but it definately has potential IMO.

I would have done some yesterday but i did not have the energy. I would usually do cardio tonight to where i would have done it but i'm taking the day off the gym instead.

I'm gonna do it next on saturday morning.
