Cardio isn't really necessary to cut. But I'll answer anyway.
IMO, whatever cardio you enjoy or can do consistently, for however long you can do it without strength/muscle loss would be what I'd do. Personally, I do ~60-75miles a week on my bike and I'm still seeing strength gains while cutting.

60-75 isn't that much for biking. I do that for running sometimes.

but i picked option 1.

i would rather run for not as long at a faster pace though. it's more enjoyable IMO and it will help a lot with your army training. like 3-8 miles nah mean?

Off-season right now, so I'm cutting down on riding so I can get more intensity in the weight room. During the summer I was doing 150-200 miles/week . Trying to keep strength up on a cutting diet while biking 150+ miles a week isn't easy.

ya exactly. i thought for a second you meant 70 miles is a lot and you're likely to lose strength. 200 miles a week though that's tough. yyou must have to eat a **** ton to not dwindle away LOL

Yea, when I'm riding that much an average day ends around 4000cal to maintain. At the beginning of the summer I was getting around 3200/day and was losing weight which was kinda funny since that's what some people bulk at XD. Right now I'm cutting while gaining strength pretty successfully at around 2300cal/day.

I need to do cardio, that's not an option - so I was trying to see which is best.

Sprints only 1 day a week? Do 30/60 HIIT twice a week, and throw in a 4 min tabata(3-5 min warm up before) in the middle. That'll help you prepare for benning a bit. This is just a supplement on top of the other cardio you'd be doing.

I mean...in reality, I'd like to design a high cardio/muscular endurance program, that focused on speed/endurance at weight and just keep nutrition sensible. I suppose if I did that I'd eventually get a cut without the sole purpose of cutting.

If I did, my plan would be around:

Rep range within: 10-12



Sund: REST
Mon: Run (2 Mile)+ Chest/Back + Superset w/ tri/Bi respectively
Tues: Lower Body Minor (Calves, stabilizing muscles, dynamic)
Wed: Sprints
Thur: Run (slow 3 mile)+ Upper Body Minor (Shoulders, pull/push up work)
Frid: Lower Body Major (Squats, lighter deads to keep back strong)
Satu: Run (1-Mile push)

abs (+lower back endurance 1 day) every other day.
