    Dont go crazy with the cardio. Doing cardio burns calories and you need the cals to help build the mass.

    I'd think a little more endurance would be better for fights and footchases wouldnt it?
    I used to weigh 175lbs ( 6'2 ) during college, and I think me back then could kick my 200lb butt today

    I would think that 20 mins is going to be fine. just make sure to keep the protein intake high. remember, you dont want to loose lean muscle mass so you need to keep protein high...atleast 1-1.5g of protein per lb of lean body mass.

    I read an article within the last 2 weeks that might be of interest to you. Unfortunaltely I can't find it. It was an article about various forms of fitness and who the fittest athletes were. The author said 400m and 800m runners. He said that these athletes have both anaerobic and aerobic fitness. Along with that, they still carry a good deal of muscle (I haven't paid much attention lately, but I hadn't realized that 800m runners were gunned up).

    Anyhow, maybe you should look into training like a 400m man.
