I've heard that sprinting releases testosterone and can get you really lean and cut, but can it be used for bulking? Despite all the broscience to the contrary you can do any cardio exercise during a bulk. Just eat more to compensate for the extra cardio. Yeah but by running you burn calories which could create a caloric deficit if you dont up your intake.
Really don't know why I'm getting downvoted I'm just giving helpful knowledge Lung capacity will increase and so will efficiency. I remember my ex phys teacher being adamant that the lungs couldn't be improved. It's fine, but don't do it everyday to the point of no longer being in a caloric surplus.
It's pretty hard to exercise your way into a caloric deficit. Even after an hour of intense working out you're only burning about calories. But you're right that he still needs to eat enough to maintain a high enough caloric intake to gain weight cue the protein powder. Your body burns calories just by being alive it is called your basal metabolic rate. So if your BMR is calories and you are doing calories of exercise you will burn calories a day.
If you only eat calories that means a deficit of calories a day. So TL;DR it is very easy to exercise yourself into a caloric deficit.
That can be a big deal. I wind up eating more total food while losing weight in the summer because I cycle every day, than in the winter while I'm "bulking". Yes you can do HIIT. It's far less catabolic - just eat the extra calories you need to fuel it.
It can definitely be done while bulking, but if you're gaining weight, you will most likely not be getting leaner regardless.
It helps keep water off, and really ramps up my appetite so I can eat more. Like everyone has said here, remember to eat those calories back! Just try to program it so it won't mess up your leg day. If I was you, I'd do it either the same day after or the day following leg work. Bulking while doing HIIT means that you get to increase your cardio faster than if you were cutting. It will also be harder since you will be heavier. May I point you here? The benefits go far beyond just weight loss, including the fact that it might actually AID in muscle gain it's closer to a weight exercise than a cardio one while minimizing fat gain.
As others have noted, just don't plan to do heavy squats too soon after an intense sprinting session, and up those calories! Look into workouts for offensive lineman in football. Let's apply some simple logic here. You are trying to build muscles. Lifting heavy weights makes you better at lifting heavier weights. To lift heavier weights, your muscles must grow. In order to grow you need excess calories. Sprinting makes you better at sprinting.

Could it be incorporated into my PPL routine? Want to add to the discussion? I believe it is called "being fit" or something to that effect. It make us believe that you disagree with that statement.
