Maybe you can do some jogging in the morning , then eat breakfast and also drink a protein shake? I don't know that's what my bro does and he is trying to get big as well

Hey Josh! Grab yourself a good quality protein shake (which I'm sure you have already lol) and skip cardio completely! Cardio excersises use your body's sugars, fats then muscle to power you through a cardio session so in the long run you'll lose muscle definition. If you feel like you need cardio stick to endurance cardio like swimming laps. It's amazing for muscle tone and your heart!! Best of luck man!

Change your workout every week. You need to keep your muscles in body shock. If your not sore every workout. Your not gunna get bigger.

And muscles are mostly water, so drink lots of it. But ya if probably do very minimal cardio also only for a warmup you wanna get your heart rate up before you hit the weights
