M&S Talks To Fitness Author And Olympic Level Swimmer Maik Wiedenbach | Muscle & Strength

Quote:
Natural bodybuilders should avoid such long periods of dieting, since it simply costs too much muscle mass. Instead, try “culking”. Bulk sensibly for 2 weeks, lower your calories for 2 weeks, repeat. As a result, you will pack on mass slower but you will stay leaner year-round. I personally like being leaner, it makes me train harder which probably leads to better gains.
Quote:
Overdieting (and overdoing cardio) was another huge mistake. It cost me many pounds of muscle and made me smaller as opposed to leaner. I was following the herd advice and was training with high reps and low weights to burn the fat off. Being natural, you have to keep training heavy, rather reduce the number of sets than the training weight.

As for cardio, you have to find out what works for you, but I do not recommend doing more than 30 minutes per day.
