I have been lifting weights for many years and finally decided to push it aside and focus more on my core and cardio. I ran a mile in 12 minutes which is kinda slow and after 4 attempts have found that my lungs are what can't keep up. Does anyone know any methods to building strong lungs?

Baby steps! It doesn't mean you're not as fit as you thought you were. Your body is used to strength trainin' so just ease into the cardio and you'll see results. There are many websites with tips on runnin' for beginners to help you.

When you go for runs do small distance at first find some good flats ti do wind sprints  as well build your lungs at your on pace. After some time you can add some hills to the sprints and runs. Hope this helps.

Without sounding weird, you and this situation it's like we were made for each other, my life is literally cardio and core, no exaggeration. I do cardio max effort everyday (sometimes twice on the days I would run and swim) and have been for years. Since February I haven't missed a single core day. 500 crunches everyday, never missed one and I'm sporting a nice eight pack, yes eight not six it wasn't a typo.

Here's the crazy part recently, like three weeks ago I decided I wanted to bulk up, put on some muscle, but I don't know where to start and different sources say different things. You're seeing where this is going right, I don't want to be too presumptuous but could this be any more perfect? P.S if you did thank you for being patient enough to read this entire post.
