Generally you would not do too much cardio at all when bulking, using only the lifting to burn calories and build mass. As for muscle memory, depending on the actual action, it can be fairly permanent barring brain injury or disease, such as Alzheimers.

I thought you were supposed to at least get your heart beat up to warm up...

You don't need to warm up by doing cardio. The way I warm up is just to do the same exact exercises but use less weight. If I'm benching 200 pounds I'll probably do 2 sets of 95lbs before I start lifting.

I have better workouts if I do 10-30 minutes of cardio, but that's not for everyone.

If you're bulking up, "cardio" that consists of mild intervals can help your lifting. I'm looking to cut weight....so more cardio, just trying to maintain on the muscle side. Maybe even drop a little muscle too.

LOL...thanks.

I wish I had enough knowledge to help people out. I'm still a newbie though since I've only been heavy lifting for 7 months but I do read constantly on weight lifting.

I'm not too sure but cardio is useless to a person trying to gain muscle. Think about it, if you run on the treadmill for about 25 minutes it's probably the same equivalent as doing a few sets of heavy squats. By the way, glad you brought up squats as that's probably one of the most important exercises you can do. If you look around the gym you'll see that not too many people actually do squats. I'm talking about the real squats too, the ones where you use the free bar instead of that machine squat where your range of motion is limited.

awesome read on squats....

For trying to gain mass, they are one of the most important, even if you're not trying to gain in the legs. Anything that fully engages the quad is going to produce the benefit, but the more you tax the muscle, the more it and the rest of your body will respond. The free squat is best, but even a hack squat on a power rack can help get the "juices" flowing, so to speak.

its all about control and actually hitting the muscle when you workout... i don't squat (haven't for the last 7 yrs) my legs are bigger than most 6'0 tall juice heads, i don't and never have dead lifted and same goes for my back

its all how you concentrate on your muscles while working out

All you need depending on your age of course

If you're desperate or really hardcore, there are the testosterone supplements and other things of course.
