Honest question: How do you keep your cardiovascular system healthy?
If by bulking you're (typically) increasing your sat. fat intake cholesterol, and to some extent, salt, AND in addition to that, cardio kills your gains easily, how do you keep your blood pressure from hitting 130+/70+?
you think going for a 20 min run 3 times a week is going to have any effect on your gains?
You'll be burning less than 100 calories. Unless you're doing marathons it won't do shit but keep your heart healthy.

Good luck. I convinced my family to buy tickets each for the occasion and bought 10 myself. Here's to a fortune.
OP here. Let me apologize for the OP. Cardio doesn't automatically cancel out gains, but it can hinder them. The only time I can effectively do cardio is on my rest days in between workout sessions.
Get off the supplements, pre-workout, and protein shakes. Replace this stuff with veggies and eat non-processed foods and give your body time to digest. Look into the 16/8, warrior diet, and lean gains fasting schedules. Our recently evolved monkey bodies were not designed to eat that frequently after the agricultural revolution. Cool down on the strength training and do some cardio. I would honestly stop all strength training if I were you and look into swimming, walking, or stair-mastering everyday for at least 30 mins, low intensity at first. You look like the kind of dude who would have a heart attack in the middle of a max at 35. Anyways, I don't see the appeal of being an unsustainable The Mountain when you could be a sustainable and equally, if not more attractive and healthy, Jon Snow or Oberyn Martell. In my experience, women aren't looking for guys with huge muscles, they're looking for guys with developed muscles, yes, but low body fat above all else. BUT if the deal is about maximizing muscle and strength for sport or hobby, go right ahead, but there's a point where returns diminish rapidly. There's more than maximizing gains and it could drastically improve your quality of life.
